You can dinghy into both marinas or the yacht club and walk to South Freeport village.
Walking through the village, which was once home to four well-run shipyards, you will pass numerous lovely New England homes where ship captains and their families lived in local splendor. The town has always supported a healthy lobster, clam, crab, and groundfish industry and was once the site of a successful ice farm. You can still see the pilings that mark the outside wall of the tidal ice pond to the left of the Yacht Club, where many boats have fled to escape the ravages of bad storms like 1953’s Hurricane Carol.
Downtown Freeport, home to LL Bean and numerous other shoppers’ delights, is a pleasant 3-mile hike. Dan, who drives AB Cab (207-865-2222), is available for a lift to Freeport, Yarmouth, Portland, or anywhere else you might want to journey. Brewer offers a courtesy shuttle to Freeport and the Portland Jetport.
