Overall, this cottage was an excellent choice for our family. We came with low expectations considering the budget-friendly cost, however the open, bright, and roomy interior pleasantly surprised us. Welcomed with a gift of salt water taffy and friendly card, our stay in the cottage was wonderful. Though it rained most of the week, the cottage provided enough room and comfort to accommodate all six of us very easily, as well as a decent view of the beach. The close proximity to the water and the abundance of towels and washcloths also made for a comfortable and easy stay on the beach.
Best vacation spot in the Pine Point - Old Orchard area. Quiet, peaceful and serene. Just steps from the beach. Every amenity is provided. From linens to kitchen to beach chairs, no need has been overlooked. Lovely views of the ocean from the living room/dining room. Backyard picnic table and grill. Convenient parking. Just a short drive from attractions. We were delighted with our stay.
My family stayed here the week of July 14th and had a wonderful time. The cottage is so close to the beach it was easy to walk back to the house if needed. The weather was great and the beach was never crowded, you could have space for your family or group with out being on top of others. The location is great, it's about 2 miles to Old Orchard Beach and close to restaurants. The house itself it great and they have everything you might need inside. There were plenty of towles, utensils and dishes. Outside there are chairs, umbrellas and things for the beach. The place is a decent size, although small it is spread out nicely and with 4 adults and a 3 year old we didn' t feel crowded. The owner was great and was available to answer questions and to check in and make sure everything was going well. We look forward to returning next year!!
The cottage was well stocked with items such as linens, towels, and cookware. The location is wonderful, just a very short walk to the beach. The owners are very friendly and easy to work with. I am very familiar with the area, but I thought it was a nice touch that they have directions to the nearest grocery store, local take-out menus, and a phone book. There were plenty of books for me to read while lounging on the beach. The cottage is a very comfortable, inviting place. I would absolutely recommend this property to others. I'm hoping to return again next year!
Where do I start? My family and I absolutely loved our stay in this charming rental! We have 4 children ranging in age from 7 months to 6 years old and we were able to comfortably fit them all in the one room to sleep at night. The cottage was light, airy, and very clean. We loved being just steps from the beach and spent every morning and every evening by the water looking for shells and chasing sea gulls! The owner is very accommodating and gave us all the information we needed to make our stay a pleasant one.
It was also great to be such a short drive from Portland...we spent one day shopping, another taking the 3 hour mailboat tour of Casco Bay, and another enjoying lobster omelettes at Becky's Diner and then heading over to the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad. We also spent one morning exploring the Scarborough marshes right off Rt 9 on your way to the rental. We were also able to stop and get lobsters at a great price to bring home with us from the Turners (also located right on Rt 9).
We've been going to Maine for as long as we can remember on our vacations to visit family up further north but this was by far our favorite place to go! We're already planning on coming back next year!
Our family of 6 (ages 11 to 90) all thoroughly enjoyed our 2010 week in this rental. The rooms are filled with light, and the air is cooled by ocean breezes and quiet window fans. A lot of love and care has gone into this spotless, well-appointed cottage. Everything we needed was waiting for us--from kitchen tools to linens to beach chairs, umbrellas and toys. View of the ocean from the living room couch is gorgeous. Short walk to beach made morning strolls, mid-day swims and reading-by-the-shore a cinch. We loved our stay in this quiet, comfortable home-away-from-home. The only surprises were pleasant ones--photos don't quite do this rental justice; there's now a flat screen t.v.; there was a wonderfully comfortable, cushioned gliding rocker enjoyed by our eldest traveler; there were more kitchen amenities than the ad described (e.g. a small food processor, many gadgets for cooking, paring, etc). To say there were plenty of towels and linens would be an understatement. Great customer service--owner would have met us personally at the property had we not arrived so late and a thoughtful phone call filled us in on all we needed to know (how to run dishwasher and so on). Owner left directions for using tv, dvd, map to grocery store.... We enjoyed the beach, biking, the amusements in Old Orchard, nearby golf. Highly recommend this rental to families and others looking for a relaxing retreat.
