"The art retreat at Porter's Landing was everything I needed and everything I didn't know I needed: uninterrupted time to make art in a beautiful, peaceful, and inspirational setting, a charming town to explore, limitless potential for local excursions, and truly warm and wonderful hosts."

          -Crystal, Washington

"My retreat at Porter's Landing Guesthouse was a wonderful experience. Inspiration was everywhere, from the garden, to the Porter's Landing waterfront, to the town of Freeport, to the art studio! It's the perfect place to create! "                                                             

            -Jennifer, Massachusetts

In addition to a wonderful downtown, Freeport is loaded with nature trails, secret coves, farms, and artistic inspiration at every corner!
