Open from May 30 til Oct 12th. . We are located on a main route. Route 25. You can follow route 25 from new Hampshire and go to the end and be on Congress street in Portland,Maine. Hospitals are in Portland,,Maine, North Conway, New Hampshire and Biddeford Maine, Bridgton,Maine. All within 30 miles of our place. Malls are 30 miles as well as beaches and mountains. Many local places to go swimming. Long Pond in Cornish is free and a great place as it has a shallow water for a long distance for kids safety. Plenty of sites to see. Cathredral Pines is a great free place in North Conway,New Hampshire. You can go to Portland,maine and take the mailboat out for $18 00 each for seniors. It goes out for 3 hours every day in morning and afternoon. Call first because of Virus. You get to get off on one island for half an hour for coffee. Its awesome way to spend the day in Portland. I love D’imillo's floating resturant right down the street from the mail boat access> It's actually a sea tanker rehabbed into a restaurant. I love going on the top deck and watch all the boats and cruise ships coming and going. You can sit and eat there! So much to see in Maine and New Hampshire! I can't put it all in here! Bay Haven here in Town has awesome Seafood! Suggested Local Attractions:beaches and mountains. Fairs and bluegrass festivals and much more!

Home Town: I was brought up in Cornish,Maine. A beautiful little town with lots to offer visitors. Antique shops and small shops galore. A hotel and a motel and several good eating places that are a must to visit! My favorite is Bay Haven, where they have the fish brought in daily from the boats. Portions are large. Sophies has great food and a drive thru and order ahead or take your chances there is a seat available! Sunrise Pizza and grilled chicken salad. Great sandwitches and Italian food. House of Pizza is where the Locals gather mornings and My husband and I are usually there with a group of friends for coffee or breakfast. A great breakfast Buffet on Sunday Mornings!

    We stayed here in August and again in September. Big rig friendly. Our hosts were so welcoming and easy-going. They have a community fire pit that we enjoyed with them a couple nights. They also set up corn hole for us to play with our kids. There is a river down behind the property that we walked down and swam in on a hot day. Town is not far for essentials. Great stay and we would definitely stay again.

    We stayed here so that we could attend the Freeburg Fair. It worked out great. Plenty of parking areas to choose from. Didn't need to level our truck camper. Site we chose was dead level. The field is a bit bumpy, just take it slow. Our hostess was very helpful. Great place to get away.

    We stopped here last year and really enjoyed it Phyl and Tony are great folks,and it's a pretty relaxing stay in the field behind the flea market extravaganza that is Packrat Phyl's. Good seafood at Bay Haven a mile down the road.
