Porters Landing Guest House & Artist Studio – Artist Retreats

We are absolutely delighted to be able to share Porters Landing Guest House with artists from all over the world. Artists apply to stay between one to two weeks in one of our suites, at a reduced cost, and share the owner’s 670 square foot art studio & Gallery.
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!
