About Cindy Fallows

Our grandfather was chief engineer at the Biddeford-Saco Mill from the 1940s-1950s. He bought the house at 14 Ocean Ave. in 1954 and had an apartment built over the 2 car garage in 1958. My family (mom, dad and three sisters) began spending summers at the 'big house' in 1955. When my grandfather passed away in 1960, he left the house to my dad. My dad and mom passed the house to us in 1983. We began offering it for rent (half summers) in the late 1980s. Now we offer for rent from June - September. We live on the east coast and have busy lives. Every fall and spring we come together for work weekends. It is a time for the family to reunite in a home that holds many special memories for us. During work weekends we clean, clear, repair, sew, etc. to keep everything looking good. It is our childhood home and we love it. We hope you do too.

Cindy Fallows purchased this house in 1954

What makes this house unique

Biddeford Pool is a lovely Maine coast town which still has the feel of a small, quiet village. Our home is situated on the water front. There is a beautiful rocky beach right across the street and a lovely sandy beach just 10 minutes walk away. Portland is the closest city. It has an historic district and modern district as well. Kennebunk and Kennebunkport are nearby as well, as are other sweet little peninsula towns similar to 'the Pool'. Our home is warm and welcoming. Interiors have beautiful wood finish -- see photos posted for a better idea of the interior as well as the surrounding area.

Summer Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for several years, after first seeing it long ago when friends had rented it (we are 30 year vacationers at Biddeford Pool). It provides a great access to both a 2 mile sandy beach and interesting ocean rock formations that are a wonderment for small children (and us old timers as well!). The home is sited for great views from every window with lots of windows to open to let in the breeze. A perfect layout for hosting friends/family with lots of nooks and crannies. A yard large enough to enjoy outdoor games or to just sit in a chair and watch the world go by. There is nothing quite like falling asleep to the sound of the waves after a great day spent in paradise. The owners are very easy to work with.

Fabulous house and views

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described! The porch was wonderful-the pianos, ping-pong table and the great space in general. Although our weather was terrible the house was very accomodating and comfortable. We were all able to spread out and enjoy ourselves. The pebble beach in front of the house was great particularily when the tide was out. Getting to the big sandy beach was a bit of a walk-a parking permit would have been a help although at low tide the beach across the street was plenty of entertainment! The views-when it was not raining- were stunning! A treat for all despite the poor weather! The owner was very accomodating by phone and e-mail and the pictures on the website were the selling point for us.The house was clean and the ammenities were fabulous-a fully stocked kitchen, games, books, beach stuff, and lots of extras! We may be interested again next year! It was a great experience!

This is an unbelievable spot for enjoying the summertime with children or adults. Rocky shores provide beautiful views and fun exploring; the sandy beach is great for swimming, sunning or surf casting. Biddeford Pool is in one of the most scenic areas on the Maine coast. Ferry Beach State Park in nearby Saco, with 117 acres of trails, is great for nature hikes, while abundant wildlife can be seen on a canoe trip at Scarborough Marsh Nature Center. It’s a short drive to Kennebunk, renowned for its tree-lined streets, historic homes, antique shops and art galleries, or Kennebunkport, where the waterfront is bursting with great restaurants, clothing boutiques for many styles, and attractive gift shops. Also nearby, Old Orchard Beach is the place to go for seaside amusement parks and miniature golf. Just 20 miles away, the city of Portland boasts a world-class art museum and a historic district with some of the best shopping and dining experiences you'll find anywhere in New England.
