The Maine Idyll has been owned and operated by the Marstaller family since it was established in the 1930’s. All the cottages have been extensively updated while retaining much of the ambiance of an era that was simpler and more leisurely paced. We take pride in our clean, comfortable cottages, friendly service, pretty surroundings, and excellent value. We’ve had thousands of repeat customers over the years that like our style and price. We think you will too.
The Maine Idyll has 20 cottages interspersed among a pretty grove of trees. The cottages accommodate two to six guests each. All have modern bathrooms with shower stalls or bathtubs, gas or electric heat, AC, DirecTV, small fridges, microwaves, coffee markers, porches, and very comfortable beds! Many units have fireplaces (free firewood provided) and kitchenettes. Some cottages are handicap accessible. Other amenities include a children’s playset, picnic tables, gas grills, swings, gliders, and plenty of space to roam around. Well-behaved pets are welcomed at the Maine Idyll. Dogs must be kept on leash.
We are located about 2 miles north of Freeport on a relatively undeveloped stretch of U.S. Route 1. It’s an easy drive to and from the village. Freeport is a unique and special place in Maine and so is the Maine Idyll. Come visit us and discover why so many vacationers return again and again to Freeport – and the Maine Idyll.
