About the area

The Rachel Carson wildlife refuge is all around you. You can bird watch to your hearts content. A 15 min drive will put you in Kennebunkport where you can shop, eat, enjoy the galleries and many other tours, walks etc. Portland and Casco Bay are about 30 min away and as in other good size cities there is plenty to do. Take a ferry ride to Big Diamond Cove and have lunch and explore the island. Big Diamond was an Army post during world war 2 and is now a lovely spot to have a lazy afternoon lunch. The Portland Museum of Art is well worth the trip. Winslow Homer and many other great artists are on display. Call the museum to find out what special show is running and any other details you may want. Portland is a foodie city, people come from Boston and New York to share the food experience in Portland. You will always get a great meal in this fun city. Of course there are many places to enjoy great Maine Lobster. Nunan's Lobster Hut is one of the best. It is located on Rt. 9 west. Wolf's is always a favorite only 10 minutes from the house they will cook it and you can bring it home......no mess. They are located about 5 minutes from the house on Rt. 9 west. Shadybrook Farm just off West St. in Biddeford has wonderful fresh vegtables. Picked the day you buy them...it just does not get better. In corn season they have the best... Aug. 1 forward. Winter season 2011-2012 also available.

“Fantastic spot!”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2016

We found this rental to be everything that our family of seven needed. Plenty of room for all of us. Extremely clean with all the modern amenities. Great location with the beach only being a short walk away. Two decks on either side of the house made it great to relax no matter what time of day. Quiet area made a it a true getaway but it's only a short drive to the bigger cities like Portland, Freeport and Old Orchard Beach. Great rental!

Owner's reply: Relaxing is what our clients expect on vacation and we try our best to provide that atmosphere. Our home can accommodate eight people with various size beds so even two families of four each can enjoy a joint vacation.

“Lovely Cozy Beach Cottage!”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2016

Had a wonderful stay at this family friendly beach house! Stayed with a family of three small children and was wonderful! Beach toys in the back and great access to the beach. It was quiet and relaxing! Kept immaculately clean with washer dryer and perfect outdoor shower for kids! Superb walking trails very close by and great fishing! Definitely a wonderful trip and will come again!

Owner's reply: Keeping our beach house neat and clean is very important to us. We want our guests to have the best possible experience that they can have. We also want to comfortable for great family fun.

“Great getaway”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2012

We had a wonderful week at this lovely cottage. The location was great and we loved having just a short walk to the beach. It was quiet and relaxing! Also close enough to Kennebunk, Wells and Ogunquit to go there for more shopping, restaurants and larger beaches. House was well-equipped, and we felt right at home. Thought we would have wireless internet, but didn't. That was the only "negative", but a VERY minor one!

Owner's reply: We are looking into wireless internet and hope that it will be more convenient for our guests. We have also done other updates this fall. We have installed new carpet throughout and expect new furniture in the living room this winter. We always try to give the best vacation experience possible.
