You get the feeling you are in the woods and back in the 50s or 60s. It is a group of cottages tucked into the woods. We stayed in cabin #4. It was odd in that it had two front doors, two bedrooms (one with a wood burning fire place), separate kitchenette, and one bathroom. It was clean and had...

Pet friendly hotel, quiet, clean and very kitschy. 1 mile from downtown Freeport. Great place to stay while visiting Freeport, ME. The free continental style breakfast was just O.K. A teenager worked the front desk and he was not very friendly but then again he's a teenager. He was knowledgeable and efficient. :)

Nice relaxing cottages. Have stayed here several times. Beds are comfortable, staff is friendly, family run business. Always clean. Pricing excellent for the area. Will definitely stay again. Close to Freeport shopping and awesome restaurants!

We love staying at the Maine Idyll Motor Court and try to book it whenever we are in the area. We like the wooded area and the fact that it is close to Freeport, but relatively quiet. We had a two bedroom cabin with a propane fireplace. It took a while to get things warmed up, but it was nice...

We enjoyed our stay at Maine Idyll Motor Court. Freeport can be an expensive area and only a handful of places let you bring your dog along with you. I booked a cottage on-line and called ahead to make sure they knew we were bringing along our Jack Russell. Cottage number 7 had two rooms with a kitchen, a bathroom...

Nice motor court style motel. It was near shopping in Freeport, but far enough away to be quiet. The only real negative I had was the bad wi-fi reception, but otherwise it was quite nice. Showers spacious with a sit down area if needed.

We stayed one night, my husband and mother and daughter and myself. What a great cabin #4. Perfect for us with 2 separate rooms and a kitchen and bathroom and porch. Wish we could have stayed an extra couple of nights to explore the area more. We went to Gritty McDuff's for dinner and ate outside on the deck, this...

My wife and I chose this motor court because of its location near multiple relatives we were to visit while in Maine. Our driver followed us, as my wife had to return early for appointments as I stayed longer. We chose Cabin # 4 with 2 bedrooms (and a fire place), so the driver had his own room. Having drive...

This was our first stay, but friends have stayed here for years and recommended that we do so as well. This is a classic "motor court" with mostly individual cabins. Very friendly staff, convenient to shopping in Freeport and a quick trip to Portland. Clean, well set up, and many cabins have fireplaces. Would definitely stay here again.

The Maine Idyll was built in the 1930's, and although modernized, still feels like a piece of an earlier generation. Very good--reasonably priced, clean, and everything in working order Could be better--highway noise from I-295 was quite noticeable.
