Porters Landing Guest House is comprised of a large 676 square foot art studio space (which you will get to use during your stay), a small art gallery, two beautiful guest suites, and a lovely shared two story foyer. Each guest suite is unique, quiet, 100% private, cozy, and ready for your creative week! One portion of the property is home to the Guest House's owner. She will be your host during your stay, and you will find her working in the art studio most days. We absolutely respect the privacy of visiting artists and guests, and try to balance giving you the privacy that you crave and at the same time stay available for anything that you may need during your stay.
You will be exactly 1 mile from downtown Freeport and all of it's galleries, shopping, cafes, restaurants, and activities, and just a 3 minute stroll to the water's edge. In addition to a wonderful downtown, Freeport is loaded with nature trails, secret coves, farms, and artistic inspiration at every corner!

The Schooner Suite
The Schooner is a one bedroom suite with skylights, small kitchen area (everything but the oven!), beautiful gas fireplace, built in cabinetry, and large bathroom. It is on the ground floor just off the foyer. Old brick walkways, stone walls, and the kitchen garden are outside your windows. You are, of course, welcome to set up your art in your suite, however you will also have free use of the shared art studio from 6 AM until 10 PM every day of your stay.
