We wanted a convenient vacation home with all amenities for comfort & fun. We love to bike, play tennis, play with our kids, surf, kayak, garden, cook, and hang out at the beach. After 20+ years in the Northeast, Biddeford Pool always is our favorite place in New England!

Jennifer purchased this house in 2005

The Pool is a throw-back to family life of the 1950's plus all the wonderful nearby options of Portland, Kennebunport, and even Old Orchard Beach amusement park. The long sandy beach is the best in Southern Maine for long walks & body surfing . Tidal pools offer endless exploration for sea creatures. Our kids love the freedom to go anywhere on their bikes, especially the daily trip to the village store for ice cream!

Beautiful, easy bike rides to Goose Rocks & Cape Porpoise for breakfast or lunch. 'Gone with the Wind' rents top-notch kayaks & windsurfers in B Pool. Kayak out to the Wood Island Lighthouse quite easily or explore the calm waters of the back Pool. Several public tennis courts & golf courses nearby, too.

A great place for a family Thanksgivning.

We like to rent a vacation property within two hours of Boston. This allows for family members who need to get to work for an emergency…they can. By having ALL members…the G'kids can go to bed and their moms and dads can be up with g'parents and have no driving issues.
The house was great. Comfortable for 4 families with 10 people. This was the first kitchen in over 30 years that my wife said…"If you get me a house with kitchen like this….I'll move!' Though November…its a nice place to walk to the beach, see the waves, skip rocks, excellent WI-FI. Great family event and location.
Owner's Response: Thank you, Dave! Glad you enjoyed both the kitchen & beach for a Happy Thanksgiving!

Plenty of room for all (2 families - 4 adults and 5 teens) in this beautiful home just a few steps from a classic Maine coastline. The home is comfortable, well maintained and includes many amenities. The kitchen is perfect for those who enjoy cooking. Our children especially loved the ping pong table, basement swings, built in stereo system (throughout the first floor and on the deck), and bicycles. The home is located in a quiet and beautiful community, and we felt very comfortable allowing them to explore. Huge dining room table, perfect for game nights. Location is ideal - 45 minutes or less to Portland, Ogunquit, Freeport and Kennebunkport. Some businesses were closed in the off season, but we found plenty to do. Loved the mailboat tour from Portland through the Casco Bay islands. The kids enjoyed Smitty's in Biddeford (dinner is served in the theater while patrons watch the movie). Jennifer is wonderful to work with and clearly has her guests' comfort in mind.
Owner's Response: Thank you, Kelly, for such a nice review. We're thrilled you enjoyed the house & Biddeford Pool!

Our stay was absolutely fabulous! Everything about the house was perfect, especially the kitchen. We are huge foodies who love to cook for everyone when we visit and the kitchen allowed us to do everything. Ample room for three cooks at once!! Such a peaceful neighborhood and we enjoyed our daily walks to the beach! We were wishing we could bring the house back with us. :-) Absolutely would stay here again!
Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the kitchen -- we'd love to have you back anytime!

We had such a wonderful stay in this warm, homey and super comfortable family home. We were four generations and everyone found multiple things to admire and enjoy about this home. The bonus room was great for kids videos and stocked with toys for the little ones while the adults could comfortably chat on the large sofa. And the basement was great fun with ping pong and indoor swings! As we were there in February it was great to have indoor space for the little ones to play. Biddeford Pool is such a lovely area and we enjoyed walking on the rocky beaches. We did much of our own cooking and the kitchen was a real treat and so comfy that we spent a lot time there. The owner was great to work with and we would love to visit this peaceful and lovely home again!!
Owner's Response: Thank you very much, Debra -- so glad all 4 generations enjoyed the home & Biddeford Pool!

Awesome Home for Relaxing Vacation

My sister and I spent a wonderful weekend at this very spacious home. The chef's kitchen was amazing and fully stocked with everything you might need (spices, cookware, etc.). The beds are soft and comfy and the house is thoughtfully equipped with games and sporting equipment. The layout is excellent with a playroom downstairs, the living space on the first floor, and all the bedrooms and bonus room upstairs

The owner gave us wonderful recommendations for seasonal activities nearby (we were there in early-January). This is the perfect place to spend a relaxing vacation with family and/or friends. We can't wait to return!
