Maine Art Retreat Details & Costs

Artist Suites & Retreat Costs

Your art retreat is located in Freeport Maine, in a 1796 home & Inn, also known as the Soule-Lambert-Blethen House, or Porters Landing Guesthouse. Close to 3400 square feet (of the 4700 square foot building) is the 3-suite Inn, which includes a large 676 square foot art studio space (which you will get to use during your retreat), a small art gallery, three 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 & her family.  She will be your host during your stay, and you will find her working in the art studio most days.  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! 

Please note: We are smoke-free! There is no smoking anywhere in the building or on the property.
