1 dog welcome in this home. No other animals are allowed without specific Vacasa approval.
Parking notes: Two cars can fit in the driveway.
Dock details: Guests can enjoy access to a runway that, at low tide, is 15 feet above the water level. Guests can launch kayaks from the shore line - please note that there is nowhere to tie up a boat. All boats and water equipment must be brought back to the house after each use (do not leave it at the dock).
1) Owner's Kayaks: The Owner's kayaks are only the 2 kayaks that are directly in front of the house. They can be carried down, placed in the water and used. After use they should then be returned to the area in front of the house, and should not at ANY time be left on the grass area down near the dock, nor on the dock itself. This is because that land and the dock is not the Owner's property. There is only right of way access.
2) Neighbor's Kayaks & Rack: The kayaks that are on racks down on the grassy area near the dock are NOT the owner's kayaks, and should not be used at any time. Those kayaks belong to a neighbor and should not be touched. Likewise, the Owner's kayaks should never be left near or on on the neighbors' kayak rack.
3) Dock Usage: As a renter of the Owner's house, you also have access to walk on & sit on the dock, which is behind the red barn. To clarify, this is the dock to the left, as you look towards the water. However, you may not leave any property on the dock, nor may you use the chairs that are on that dock. If you want to sit on the dock, you may bring down the Owner's chairs, which are leaning against the side of the Owner's house. However, you may not leave any of the Owner

We loved staying at the house - to wake up to the view of the harbor was fabulous! The house is lovely with nice space to gather for breakfast or watch a movie. Loved the ease of turning on the fireplace. The master bathroom is gorgeous!

The house is a perfect get away retreat. It had extra touches that make it homey and yet a little modern. It was close to hiking trails, beaches, parks , lighthouses and many other things to see but they aren’t in your backyard. I would go back in a heartbeat! The only thing I didn’t like was Vacasa booking agency! I called twice and was put on hold so long I hung up. Even when I texted them back they still did not reply. I would never book with them again, but again this rental property is a delightful breath of fresh air!
We're so sorry about wait times due to the staffing shortage. Hopefully we can better impress you in the future.

Great location, awesome views. I wasn’t aware that we were right on the water, so huge bonus. Only negatives are downstairs bedroom has no closet so no place to hang clothes. Upstairs closet is huge, not not helpful for person downstairs. Second negative is that there are very few window coverings in the house, and completely exposed in bedrooms. That was a bit uncomfortable despite not having any peeping neighbors. My sister slept on the bottom floor bedroom and was extremely nervous not having any window coverings. Lack of covering also means 5 am wake up with sunrise. Again, despite the uncovered windows and lack of closet in second bedroom, it is a fabulous house with the fanciest bathroom I have ever used in my life. Think hi tech and easy to use. You will hate a regular shower and toilet after this stay.

First time I have used Vacasa. This home had many "glitches" that we made them aware of. Hopefully they are resolved for the next guests. Things I learned about this listing...you must be completely comfortable in your own skin as it is very open with little privacy. The other thing is the ocean view is from the private dock, perhaps when leaves have fallen you can see from the home but our water views were very limited. The private dock is not far and very enjoyable. The sunrise from the master suite is breathtaking. If you are looking for a quiet getaway this would be for you. For our first trip to Maine from Oregon it was not quite what I thought I was getting. I was absolutely disappointed.

We loved staying in this house! Everything is so well equipped for enjoyment, birdwatching, bbq, cooking, kayaking, etc. the location is lovely and the view fantastic. The host was super friendly and hospitable. We are definitely coming back here again.

We loved the home and our pup did as well! We did a lot of Freeport outlet shopping and visiting friends that are nearby. Water quality was off but we definitely will be back!

The house was very comfortable for our November get-away--warm, cozy, and dog-friendly. Being in Cundy's Harbor was a real treat; seeing a historic and vibrant fishing village in action was fun. The views from the front of the house were beautiful, with the trees turning color and the tide coming and going through the day. Being so close to Brunswick as well as historic Orrs and Bailey's Islands, and within an hour of Popham Beach and Reid State Park make this a perfect vacation spot.

The booking was easy, the logistics were all very straightforward and smooth, and the accommodations were terrific. We had high expectations, and they were exceeded. An excellent experience all-around.
Lauren B.Aug 2021
Loved the location, great view and easy walk to local restaurants and lobster pound. The house is very modern and well stocked with kitchen utensils and pots/pans. Enjoyed kayaking with seals and dolphins. The owner is very easy to work with. We would return!
Tara P.Jul 2021
The house is beautifully decorated and the layout of the home is wonderful. The views of the water from the house are just breathtaking, especially the sunrise in the morning from the master bedroom. The location is quiet and peaceful, just what I was looking for. I would highly recommend this home.
