We wanted to stay someplace very "Maine," and this was perfect! Some miles north of downtown Freeport, where the shopping frenzy is chaotic, is this wonderful, old-fashioned motor court that is comfortable and charming. The women who work there were helpful to us. We were traveling with our Jack Russell terrier, and sometimes it is hard to find a good...

I asked for a different cabin but was talked into this one b/c it had A/C and a fireplace. What they didn't mention was that it was the handicap-accessible cabin, which I didn't need or want. The floorboards bend when you walk on them, as if termites are munching from below. Few electric outlets and many extension cords. The bed...

We have been staying here for many many years. It's so close to everything. A day trip to Pompham beach, shopping in Freeport. The cabins have an at home feeling. The owners are always so accommodating. Highly recommended for families or couples!

I was a bit skeptical at first, when I couldn't reserve online, but had to call in, but the place was great. It's hidden in the woods, but yet very close to Freeport's shopping. The cabin was nice, comfortable, and spacious enough. It even had a small fridge and microwave. A nice, personal touch was felt in little notes left...

We LOVE this place. The only drawback at all is that it isn't further up the coast away from Freeport - which is just too durn full of tourists! Otherwise, it's like a corner of Heaven. The fireplace in our cabin (#3) was terrific - and wood supply was ample. The staff is helpful and friendly. There is enough kitchen...

My wife and I found Idyll Motor Court by random search on the net.We knew immediately from reading the description it was the place we were looking for.We were tired of having to cope with drunks and squabbling couples at some of the local mainstream motels/hotels in Freeport.We gave Idyll a try 6 years ago and have been back every...

I found this place by accident while riding my motorcycle. Met the owner David and a true gentleman with a kind heart. There are about 20 cabins here. Rates are around $70-$85 off season and little higher starting in June. Cabins are very nice inside. Hardwood floors, flat screen TV, propane heat, fireplace, queen bed, desk, table, wifi, microwave, hot...

I have been driving by Maine Idyll Motor Court for the past 16 years and after spending $150 per night at chain hotels, I decided it was time to give Maine Idyll a try. I loved it. I specifically requested and got cabin #18 otherwise known as One Maine Pine because it was constructed with the wood of one pine...

I have stayed here many times over the last 20 plus years and have stayed in every cabin except 16, 19 and 20 and it has always been a great experience. Over the years I have stayed here with a wide variety of people, my mother, husband, toddler(later teen-ager, now adult daughter), my sister(who only stays in high end hotels)...

We stayed here the end of last summer in a 2 bedroom cabin. It was my husband and daughter and I in one room that had a full size bed and twin and my in-laws in the other room that had a queen bed. It was awesome! We had such a great time! The breakfast in the morning was such...
