Bailiwick Cottage is a cozy, private cottage that looks south down Freeport (Harraseeket) Harbor in Freeport, ME. It is a 4 season accommodation that is close to Freeport shopping, Portland eating, and the Adventure Schools of LL Bean. The cottage sits approximately 50 yards from our main house, has its own parking space and patio, and offers the ability to come and go as you wish.

We have had 12 honeymoons in the cottage and several have used it for a multi-day, solo meditation retreat.

A comfortable and charming cottage, close to Wolf's Neck for early morning trail walk, or LL Bean's Paddling Center for some time on the water. Also, a lovely spot to sit outside and enjoy the sounds of Maine.

The Bailiwick Cottage is as described— quaint, comfortable, clean, and well-appointed. This is a quintessential retreat in a quiet, naturally beautiful corner of coastal Maine. I hope to stay here again when I return to the area.

The cottage is adorable and it is very well organized. The recommendations by the host are spot on. Lots of things to do close by. We both agreed to come back and enjoy this peaceful place again.

This was the coziest studio rental we have experienced. The lovely outdoor seating made for a perfect place to enjoy several meals and George was an excellent host with the information he provided about the area. I already look forward to another visit in the future!
