The décor ranges from antique to modern, with many oriental rugs and sturdy furniture. The beds are very comfortable and relatively new, outfitted with cotton blend sheets. The kitchen is well equipped with quality cookware for preparing great feasts.

A Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 24, 2010
  • Stayed: Jul 2010
Our time with 9 friends was perfect, due in large to our wonderful accommodations at this Pool St. location. Close to Ocean Park Beach, our favorite. Also, close to restaurants, our favorite here was Buffleheads, just a short drive with a great beach across the street for a pleasant evening stroll. We also loved the close proximity to East Point Sanctuary, a must see!
The owner was more than accommodating and checked in to see if everything was fine during our stay. We appreciated his flexibility and helpfulness in booking our 4 nights. Just a great guy! A great place for large groups & families! Loved the home!!!

The dream house for a family reunion

We all had a fabulous time at the Mansion in Biddeford. It is the absolute best place for a family reunion. The house is clean, has lots of linens, towels etc, lots of kitchen supply as well. We enjoyed cooking large family meals and nothing was missing. We were a group of 16 people with additional visitors for meals and it did not even feel crowded. The owner is a genuine nice person who does everything to make our stay enjoyable. We warmly recommend this house without hesitation. You won't regret !!

Lots of Room

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 24, 2009
  • Stayed: Aug 2009
Our family stayed at this rental Aug 2009. The house is older, but full of of antiques and charm, with plenty of room for the 14 people it sleeps in beds, all double or larger. The master bedroom had the only king bed but there were several queens. The kitchen had lots of utensils and pots for cooking. 5 of the 7 bedrooms were equipped with air conditioning and the many large porches both enclosed and open to outside air were a treat. The home was a short 5 minute ride to scenic Biddeford Pool and Biddeford Beach and Splash Town Fun Water and Amusement Park in Saco. We were also a short 10-15 minute ride from Old Orchard Beach. While not evident by the picture, this house is on a double line road, and although not terribly busy, it was not suitable for younger children to venture off on their bikes alone. Overall, a very positive rental experience with both the house and the owner.

Great Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 9, 2008
  • Stayed: Aug 2008
This house was perfect for our family reunion. We were (4) families and were perfectly comfortable in this house. This house is not new, but definatley has antique charm. It was extremly clean and the kitchen was well appointed. It had everything that we need an we cooked in most nights. The dinning room table sat 8 adults and 4 children comfortably and we were able to cook up a great lobster feast. The house is in biddeford... not much there but a short drive has you to old orchard, portland, kittery, cape neddick and more. One note: the stairs on this house are steep. There is a main floor bedroom for those who cannot climb. Not higlighted in the ad is the 2nd floor full kitchen. Yes this house has (2) kitchens, 3 TV rooms, 2 bathrooms and 5 bedroom. It is just as big as described. I would recommend this house. Execpt for the week of solid rain, this vacation home had all we needed.

Across the street is Clifford Park for viewing the White Mountains, the ocean with miles of gorgeous hiking/biking trails through granite quarries, and cascading waterfalls. Located 30 minutes from Portland or Ogunquit, 15 minutes from Old Orchard Beach or Kennebunkport, and six minutes from beaches of Fortunes Rocks or Biddeford Pool. The nature conservancy at Biddeford Pool is a terrific vantage point for offshore islands, a lighthouse, and the White Mountains hovering above Old Orchard Beach. The Saco River public boat launch is a mile away, as are kayak rentals for exploring the spectacular Saco River. Boston is a one-and-one-half-hour drive or can be reached via the Amtrak Downeaster. The downtown historic districts of Biddeford or Saco and the train terminal are a delightful ten-minute walk. A recent influx of development has spawned new cafes and ethnic restaurants. The “Museum on the Streets” self-guided walking tour provides background on area history and architecture.
