Whenever possible we stay at the Maine Idyll Motor Court. Close to Freeport shopping, but far enough away to be a relaxing respite from the shopping frenzy. The cottages are well-maintained, clean, and very comfortable. Most have a fireplace which adds a nice ambiance on a rainy or cool night. Booked on-line through their website for the first time which... More

I visit Monhegan every year and had been paying upwards of $200 to stay the night before leaving for Monhegan. Maine Idyll was just what I was looking for. I have been in cabin 18 two years in a row now. The cabin was very clean and all I could want or need. The fact it is such a bargain... More

We stayed a couple of nights in cabin #3. The cabin was clean and quiet at night. It's definitely an older facility, but has a sense of timelessness. We used the fireplace one night, and it was romantic. The cabin was smallish, but tastefully decorated. The bed was comfortable for sleeping, but we could have used a couple more pillows.... More

Wonderful location outside of Freeport. We stayed on our way up the Maine Coast. We came from Boston and were headed to Bar Harbor. The staff was helpful & knowledgable. The cabin we stayed in was small, but very clean and very affordable. I would love to return someday!

We only stayed for a night, but just loved it! The cabin was rustic yet with a number of modern touches and an excellent layout (#14): wide wooden plank flooring, paneling, open room with 2 beds, dining area, small kitchen (stove top, small fridge, microwave, sink), large screen TV with many channels, comfortable rocking chairs, small but fully adequate bathroom...

This is the second time we have stayed at the Maine Idyll. This tourist court takes me back to the 50's when our family traveled and stayed in cabins. The first time we stayed here I randomly selected Cabin 18 and it was such a treat, so I selected it again. It is the oldest of the cabins and was... More

Our job requires the four of us to travel weekly. We all agree that we had one helluva room/cottage/cabin for the price. Normally we would get two separate hotel rooms for around 180 per night. This cottage #16 was $130 a night had 3 bedrooms and four beds! We were more than pleased. We didn't get to chat much with... More

We stayed here over the July 4th weekend and enjoyed the simplicity and surrounding areas very much. The places (cottages) are spare and simple and everything we wanted...not your average chain hotel. The place had a "patina" that we found very lovely and refreshing.

These are nice little cabins with basic needs. There is a dorm size fridge, little sink, dishes, dish towels, plenty of lighting, wood burning fireplace, nice size heater if you don't want to have a fire, porches on each cabin with comfy chairs, picnic tables, desk, dresser, wood floors (which means no yucky carpeting). They even supplied the firewood and... More

We stayed in cottages #2 and #5 the night of August 15 after taking the red eye from Salt Lake City. We had a room booked in Portland for big $s but thought what the heck lets try this instead after reading other Trip adviser reviews. Close to town so it was an easy drive to Freeport but out far...
