Falmouth House Rental Photos and Description
3 BR, 1 BA, sleeps 6
Bright, Sunny and spotlessly clean, this quintessential Maine beach cottage features beautiful ocean views and a perfect location. Located in the historic Town Landing neighborhood of Falmouth Foreside, rated 'Maine's most prestigious place to live', it's just 10 mins to downtown Portland and 15 mins to the famous Freeport outlets and the huge LL Bean Campus of stores. The location feels away from it all, yet it's only 1-2 miles to restaurants, coffee shops & shopping! Wake up to see the sailboats in the harbor. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktails on the expansive deck with beautiful views of the sailboats in the harbor.
Walk to the private beach or the Town Landing Market, both just steps away. The historic Town Landing Market features the best (and most affordable) lobster rolls, shrimp rolls and crab rolls around plus delicious made-to order sandwiches and pizza.
