About the area

Biddeford Pool is a quaint community that sits on a peninsula off the coast of Southern Maine. It has a little village with general store, post office, yacht club, golf course (sorry, private!), boat launch, an Audubon Society preserve that overlooks Wood Island lighthouse, a rocky oceanfront for rock climbing and exploring, and a two-mile beautiful sandy beach.

Nice area and owner was very helpful. The home was well equipped with all the necessities and it was great to return home with our laundry clean.

“Holiday Adventure”

Reviewed 29 Dec 2014

We spent a month in this cute little house in Biddeford Pool close to the ocean. Our son and grandkids live in the area, and we wanted to spend time with them. The owners of this home allowed us to have our dogs with us, so we drove from MN to Maine. The rocky beach was only a short block away, which we all loved to explore. Along with the groomed paths through this charming little village. Even though the kitchen is small we had Thanksgiving dinner for 10. Baking pies and dozens of cookies in the retro double ovens. And enjoyed a lobster boil as well. We were lucky enough to have wonderful weather with temps in the 40's & 50's much of the time. But also got to experience a couple of Nor'easters. Since we could see the ocean from both the living room and master bedroom, we got to experience the amazing waves in comfort. If you love the rocky wild Maine shores this is the perfect place to enjoy them. Along with many varieties of birds & squirrels, we also had deer, a raccoon family and a skunk visit us! We enjoyed watching them. Because we spent a much time longer here than the normal vacationer would. The fact that the only shower is very small and the living room furniture wasn't acquired for comfort did start to be an issue. In the warmer months when you would be spending more of your time on the porch, it wouldn't be as important. It is a cute house that would benefit from a little cosmetic update. Maureen, the owner is very nice to work with. And you can not beat the location. For a short stay I would definitely come back. With a few changes I would gladly do another month, even with the smaller shower! Biddeford is close to Portland with its many different activities. Kennebunkport with its fun shops & Freeport with the L.L. Bean home store & great shops as well. Or it is a great place to just relax and enjoy the ocean! We would recommend it as a wonderful place to visit. Cheryl P

Reviewed 22 Oct 2013

The house was great - spotlessly clean with a wonderful porch. A little musty, but probably because we were so late in the season and it had been closed up. The visitors all loved it!

“Location, Location, and Clean”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2012

Perfect location! Quiet neighborhood! Walk to beach! House is very clean! Kitchen needs updating (not good for gourmet homecooks)blew fuse when oven and 3 burners were on and electric is old (need 3-prong adapters for laptops, etc.). Queen mattress upstairs needs replacing, but room is clean and large with plenty of storage. Upstairs twin room is fine and has plenty of storage. Upstairs bath is narrow shower only, but very clean. Downstairs living/dining area is very comfortable and 1/2 bath is dated, but clean(just off of kitchen). Lowest level queen bed is fine and laundry room is a plus. The highlight is the front porch! We ate many meals on that porch - perfect! The price was great and having a clean place to stay is a high priority on my list, this had both!! All in all - a great house at a great price! Make sure to include this one on your short list!

“Great Trip”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2012

We had a wonderful time at this great house. Only a short walk to the beach. Close to town and short drive to many sites. House was perfect for our short time. Highly recommend.

“great time at Biddeford Pool”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2012

I'm from Maine and love going back to Fortune's Rock. The house is great and well equipped. The location is right by the ocean. Seeing and hearing the ocean is wonderful. The house is located close to a nature preserve. Biddeford Pool is quiet and a little bit remote.

“Best Christmas Ever!”

Reviewed 11 Jan 2012

Our Christmas stay at Biddeford Pool was everything we had hoped for and more. Accommodations were excellent and we enjoyed a stress free relaxing week. The owner, Maureen was very helpful and responded immediately to any questions we had prior to our visit. I highly recommend this property and will most likely visit it again.

“Loved everything about it!”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2011

Despite being in the house on one of the windiest nights ever (hoping the roof would stay on!) at the tail end of the April tornadoes we found the place delightfully warm and cosy. It was like stepping back in time with many retro original features including the amazing General Electric oven and hob, pine cladding and awesome basement with a bar (we don't have basements in the UK much) which the children loved! The place is so well equipped - Maureen has thought of everything. The new beds were incredibly comfortable and we all slept really well. The central heating is very effective and quick to heat up the house. The surrounding area is lovely although it was quite cold and windy for our stay - I'm sure summers there are amazing. For activities we walked on the lovely beach, visited Portland (amazing waves following the storms) and Biddeford, and shopped at Kittery. Otherwise we had a wonderfully relaxing time at the house. We rented some Red Box dvds from a nearby store, had some wonderful meals out - our favourite was Longhorn Steak House. All in all the only negative thing was that we wanted to stay much longer - 3 nights wasn't enough! We would love to return to the house one day, perhaps in the summer. Highly recommended.
