Yarmouth House Rental Photos and Description

2 living rooms, 2 large bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 6

Our beautiful oceanfront guest house comes complete with a fabulous lobster feast each week. Located near the end of a private road, you'll feel like you've truly gotten away from it all, yet you're only minutes from historic Yarmouth Village, Freeport's famous outlets and the Old Port's restaurants and boutiques. This charming house features pumpkin pine floors, custom cherry kitchen, shaker furniture and amazing views from all rooms. Have a drink out on the new deck or take a nap on the sun porch overlooking the bay. Walk down the winding staircase and take a swim in the cove at high tide or explore tidal pools and the rocky shoreline. Bike across the bridge to Sandy Point Beach on Cousins Island and sink your toes in the sand. We provide Wi-Fi, and cable . The house has an eat-in kitchen w/deck, living room and family room both with cable, DVD & stereo, a sun porch, a large L-shaped master w/queen bed, pull-out sofa & twin plus second bedroom with queen & twin.

Guest Book Comments : 'Thank you for providing such a lovely spot for us to spend a week together. The lobster feast was wonderful--we had to take a rest between courses!! We biked Peak's Island (ferry from Portland, bike shop up road to left-easy rentals) and explored Wolf's Neck State Park (wonderful osprey sightings!!).. The Old Port in Portland is a good destination for shops and restaurants. The Royal River Grillhouse was great too!'

'We so enjoyed your beautiful home. The lobsters were delicious! One of our favorite spots was Christmas Cove.'

'Thanks for everything, we loved staying here!'

'We had a great week here. Went sailing on a windjammer from Portland--it was fantastic! The lobster feast was amazing! One of our favorite places was Boothbay Harbor. Thanks Joi & Lee, your house is lovely. Cheers!'

'Gorgeous, Gorgeous, Gorgeous! And the lobster feast was absolutely STUPENDOUS! Thanks so much!'

'Thank you so much for a great stay. We had a great time exploring Portland'

For the kids...: For the kids there are two wonderful playgrounds in town as well as area attractions that include the Aquaboggan Water Park and Fun Town Splash Town USA in Saco Maine (about 45 minutes away). We also have many beautiful white sand beaches south of Portland that are about 40 minutes away. Other family favorites are the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray (35 minutes), the Desert of Maine in Freeport (20 minutes), and Sebago Lake State Park in Casco (45 minutes). The kids and adults will want to visit Eartha the world's largest globe which is right here in Yarmouth at Delorme Map Company headquarters.

Outstanding Property

What a fantastic house and hosts. We had the pleasure of staying at Tides Edge for Thanksgiving. The house easily slept 5+. We spent our mornings watching the sunrise from the heated front porch. The house was top notch, very clean, fully equipped kitchen and the linens were outstanding. I didn't want to leave. If I could give Tide's Edge 6 stars I would do so without hesitation.
Owner's Response: Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you so much for the lovely review. We're so glad that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving at Tide's Edge and hope to see you all back again some day!

Best wishes,

Joi and Lee

Perfect Relaxing Getaway

We spent four nights in this cozy cottage on Casco Bay. It was everything we had hoped for.....nice place, very clean, close to things we wanted to do and the owners were very helpful and provided an awesome lobster feast for us. You won't be dissappointed if you stay here. We loved the time in the morning with our coffee sitting on the porch. The views are amazing! We ventured out each day to downtown Portland, Freeport (home of LL Bean) and Cape Elizabeth (lighthouse). This was a perfect location to all these things and we looked forward to coming back at the end of the day to relax.

Relaxation at its BEST!

While looking online for a cool place to escape the Florida heat and humidity, I discovered Tide's Edge. After looking at all the pictures and talking with Joi, we booked for one week - the only week still open in August. I am very picky about my surroundings, so was thrilled to find the home spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and with breathtaking views of Casco bay. Imagine watching the sun rise over the water from your cozy bed. There was one minor problem in the kitchen and Joi handled it immediately. We enjoyed our stay at Tide's Edge so much that before checking out we booked for two weeks next year. Relaxation at its BEST!
Owner's Response: Dear Mary and Phil,

It was such a pleasure to have you here and we're looking forward to having you come back for two weeks next summer!

My family had an amazing week at tide's edge. After a disastrous rental last summer, it was a pleasant surprise to walk into such a beautiful and well kept home! This home is exactly as pictured - clean, uncluttered and comfortable! The deck and front porch is where we spent the most time...beautiful sun drenched mornings spent reading from the great selection of current magazines and books provided. The kitchen has all the items you need and most importantly nothing more! things are easy to find and put away - absolutely no clutter! Bedrooms very comfortable and so clean, more than enough dressers and closets for everything to be put away and plenty of room to set up my one year olds pack and play and not feel cramped.

As promised joi and lee provided us with a lobster feast to die for! My family loves lobster and will eat it just about every night when we come to Maine and we were blown away by the quality and taste of everything. Our hosts were VERY generous and we appreciate it so much!

So much to do in the area. We had to plan our day trips around baby naps, but no worries with all the attractions within 40 minutes...lighthouse tours, Scarborough beach, Portland, Freeport. Wildlife reserve park....it was all great. We especially loved the sandy beach at Scarborough, Gilbert's clam chowder in Portland, the animals at the reserve where we spent my daughters first birthday and the many lobster dinners we had at 'home'.

Owner's Response: Dear Eileen,

It was so nice to meet you and your family (especially your absolutely adorable little girl!). We're so glad that you enjoyed your time at Tide's Edge and hope to see you back here someday!

Best wishes,

Welcoming and Lovely!

Hi Joi,

I wanted to send you a note to tell you again what a wonderful time we had in Maine.
Your cottage is so welcoming and was lovely to come home to after our days out exploring.
As I mentioned, we only ate dinner out one night because it was actually more fun to relax "at home".

Please do keep us in mind if something opens up that is a small cottage on water.
In the meantime we will look forward to enjoying your place again before too long.

Warmly,
Sue
