History swings in the atmosphere of the small city of Freeport. In an area of beautiful beaches, hills, and brooks, you'll find surprises like the large sand dunes of the Maine Desert (open in early May to mid-October), or the Barn Museum 1783 that contains world-class sands and remarkable nature trails.
Annually, an estimated 2.5 million shoppers visit Freeport shops and boutiques of factories that include LL Bean, a well-known 24-hour global sports shop.
Besides shopping, cruises are available at the port or whale watching and seal trips. Other outdoor activities include hiking through countless trails, sailing, kayaking and canoeing.
Staying at a Freeport bed and breakfast will be unforgettable. Many of them are nineteenth-century palaces amidst vast landscapes with old world charm. Breakfast is often included and is fabulous. Rooms have private balconies, fireplaces, and Jacuzzi tubs. Amenities often include comfortable beds with a homemade duvet, attached bathroom (some of which offer organic soap), coffee makers, irons, ironing boards, hair dryers, individual heating temperature controls, air conditioning, and cable TVs. Some places have common rooms to meet with guests, as well as books, games and a gift shop. Free newspapers often provide free local calls, credit cards, free parking, internet services, outdoor pools and play areas. In some places, a welcome bottle of wine or a box of chocolates is offered.
Prices vary depending on location, facilities and season. There are special prices midweek and winter. One can find a good place for $ 89 (double) upwards. Check if the above mentioned tariff includes the housing tax. An additional charge for an additional person in the room is common – as well as cancellation fees. Many children under the age of 18 are allowed to stay with parents for free. Some may not allow children at all. There are restrictions on pets in some homes. Check check-in times and smoking instructions. Prior reservations may be necessary.
