Location: Freeport, Maine
Now here’s a quaint, cute-as-a-button cottage by the sea to kick things off this 4th of July weekend. Located in Raspberry Cove just four miles from downtown Freeport, Maine—which, as it happens, is home to L.L. Bean—this light-filled one-bedroom features rustic hardwood floors, white paneled walls, updated kitchen and bathroom, and, best of all, a sleeping porch with views onto the water.
Built in 1952, the 581-square-foot home (asking price: $299,000) even comes with an additional bunkhouse and outdoor shower, making it a great weekend retreat or laid back hangout for you and a couple of friends. And, honestly, who can resist that all-American picnic-table-Adirondack-chair-barbecue-grill set-up? Take a look around, and make sure you grab your kayaks.
