VACATION HOME BY THE SEA IN A SMALL VILLAGE

Biddeford Pool House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6

This old fashioned, traditional New England cape has a kitchen, dining room, and living room on the first floor. The living room has a cozy wood burning fire place. Three bedrooms and full bath are upstairs. The master bedroom has a queen bed. The smaller bedrooms have two twins each. There is a lovely ocean view from the upstairs bedroom and the front lawn. There is a great back yard for having barbecues and for children to play.

The house is a minute's walk to the secluded little beach where you can sit and read a book, splash and swim in the water or view spectacular sunsets. It is a stone's throw from the quaint village where you will find a grocery store (with lobster pound), gift shop and post office. And it is a five-minute walk to the lovely 2 1/2 mile white sandy beach where you will enjoy long afternoons in the sun. This beach is perfect for long walks, swimming and surfing. The children love to lounge and splash in the tide pools.

Summer rental only: Our house is only set up for summer rentals.

After several years of putting money into invisible places, such as rewiring the entire house, rebuilding the foundation and shoring up the chimney we recently gave each room in the house an interior face lift. Nearly every wall in the house has been either painted or wallpapered in the last few years. We have a new Washer/Dryer unit that runs like a dream. The Dining Room floor has been freshly sanded and stained and all the chairs that needed it have been re-caned. We purchased brand new 300 thread count bamboo sheets for all of the beds and new fluffy towels. We purchased a locally made picnic table for the yard with a lovely umbrella for the center so you can enjoy your meals outside if you like. All in all I think you will be very pleased with all of the changes that have taken place.

Our house has been in the family for generations - Peter's father grew up in the house in the 1920's. We love it and have kept as much of it's original character as possible while maintaining it well with skill and love.

Endearing, well-maintained - loved it!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four had the most picture-perfect, comfortable, simple yet invigorating, and bonding family vacation in Kate's wonderful beach cottage. We loved the kayaking (just walk a hundred yards down the street to Little Beach) and the biking is spectacular. My husband is a serious road biker & loved the long, flat, safe roads to Kennebunk, Wells & even Portland. We stayed for the charity bike ride for MS -- the Great Maine GetAway at nearby UNE -- FANTASTIC!!! The kids loved the freedom to ride & run anywhere in this perfect little beach village. Thank you Kate for a wonderful stay & great memories!!

Lovely house, charming area, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
Our first visit to Maine started in Biddeford Pool, which was already a chance in itself as the village is stunning. Furthermore, the house was charming, with lots of features one could almost find in a museum as the owners made a point of keeping it "old fashioned". As old fashioned as it was, it was also comfortable and cosy. The 5 of us had plenty of space and soon became familiar with the environment (small and big beaches, store, restaurant, all reachable by foot). Being French, we tend to be rather fussy about having enough equipment to cook and eat (one of our favourite past time) and we had all we needed. The icing on the cake: the owners are extremely helpful and friendly, whether before or during our stay. In other words, we strongly recommend this rental.
Thank you for having us!

The Perfect Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage in Biddeford Pool is like a hideaway in plain sight. No bill boards, no tourists, no motels, no crowds, yet it's close to Portland, theaters, the airport, in an old world atmosphere of old houses with lawns, hedges and spaces.

Biddeford Pool at its best

  • 5 of 5
My family has been vacationing in Biddeford Pool for over 30 years. This cottage is wonderfully authentic and in a superb location. It has more amenities then any property we have previously rented. We had a great vacation and hope to return next year.

Quiet retreat in a gorgeous spot

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay here last summer during an unusually hot Maine week. We cooled off in the bay, took long walks along the ocean, kayaked in the Pool and had fresh seafood every night. We walked everywhere and truly relaxed. The cottage was just right, clean and comfortable and perfectly located.

Beautiful Biddeford Pool

  • 5 of 5
We love this place. We have stayed here several times over the years and will continue to return. Both the ocean and bay are within easy walking distance, allowing you to hear the surf from your bedroom window. Little Beach, on the bay side, is a great place to wander and explore during low tide. It is an easy walk to town and the general store. The antique cape-style house has recently been remodeled and is comfortably and attractively decorated. We would highly recommend this rental to anyone wishing to experience a true Maine coastal vacation in a peaceful and unspoiled town.

Biddeford Pool is a sleepy town that will take you back in time. It is a wonderful place for children to ride bikes and scooters; there are nature walks and an Audubon preserve. You can climb on the rocks by the ocean or walk on the sandy beach. It is a wonderful spot for kayaking or sailing - choose the calm 'pool' waters or the more exciting open ocean. From just about everywhere on the 'Pool' you will see incredibly beautiful views of the ocean, boats and nearby islands. You can even kayak out to nearby Wood Island for a tour of the lighthouse. Biddeford Pool is the perfect secluded summer spot for a family vacation. If you are looking for shopping, great restaurants or nightlife, Biddeford Pool is near lots of hot spots: Kennebunkport, Freeport (with L.L. Bean one of its many wonderful shops), Old Orchard Beach with its amusement park and lovely Portland with so many terrific restaurants and museums are all within 10 - 20 miles of Biddeford Pool.
