Freeport, Maine

Is truly one of the most unique vacation destinations in America in that the town itself boasts over 100 shops, restaurants, cafes, markets, high end retail outlets, and, of course, the LL Bean complex (open 24/7!). Beyond downtown, Freeport is also home to no less than five great breweries, Wilbur’s Chocolates, our very own desert, and two dramatically beautiful state parks—Wolfe’s Neck and Winslow Park—that offer hiking trails, camping, picnic areas, and stunning views of Maine’s Casco Bay and its many islands and peninsulas.

Freeport is not only a halfway point to Maine’s other top attraction, Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, but the town is also a mere 15 minutes, by car or our Amtrak station, to Portland, ME. Portland was recently named America’s top food city by Bon Appetit Magazine, and offers an endless selection of big name chefs, top restaurants, hidden gem restaurants, bars and neighborhoods made up of artisan bakeries, specialty shops and cafes.

We look forward to helping you plan your ultimate stay, whether it’s for shopping, exploring nature, indulging your epicurean lifestyle—or all of the above!
