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.

This was our first stay here but it won't be our last. I can hardly wait to bring my whole family here. The cabin was so comfortable and clean. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. After a day of shopping in Freeport I really looked forward sitting on the porch with a good book.

This hotel is a real step into the past. A genuine US 1 motor hotel with individual cabins for rooms. Our cabin was clean and well-maintained. Room included kitchenette and a TV with good cable service. Breakfast was fine: a selection of baked goods and good coffee. The only negative was the drone of the nearby interstate but that did...

We stayed here for a single night a few years back. Quaint, rustic, and quiet, this was a perfect place for an overnight while exploring Freeport. It was simply furnished but very warm and welcoming. It is not fancy, but I'd recommend it without reservation.

Clean, quiet, shaded cabin was an excellent value at Spring rates. We got a 2BR with living room and full kitchen for $103.55. We accidentally booked the wrong night and had no problem getting a cabin the next day when we explained our mistake, without charge for the first booking. The staff is friendly in a quiet, Maine kind of...

This my third year in a row staying at Maine Idyll the day after Memorial Day. It was also the third time staying in cabin 18. What always impresses me is the cleanliness. The cabin is simple, nicely decorated and the bed is excellent. Can beat as a great room at a great price. I look forward to coming every...

I really really wanted to love my quaint comfortable cabin in the woods. My roommate has stayed here and loved it every time. I had cabin 10. The cabin was well decorated and had a comfortable bed, fireplace and simple kitchenette. The problem was that it reeked of a burnt bacon/barbecue smell. I tried wiping down all hard surfaces but...
