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. We also have a beautiful YMCA with two swimming pools and a great workout facility just 4 miles up the road. There is also a local movie theater nearby in Falmouth just 15 minutes away.

Things to do...: Enjoy a hike at one of four parks within a few minutes drive: Royal River Park, Winslow State Park, Hedgehog Mountain, Bradbury Mountain or Wolf Neck Woods.

Lee and I own a seafood shipping company called Maine Lobster Direct, so we love to spoil our guests with a fabulous lobster feast. We'll bring you the freshest Maine lobster right off the boat along with clams, chowders, shrimp--whatever you want.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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

Great view, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5
The house is amazing and completely private/separate from the other house in the property. It has everything you could need from bikes to kayaks to lobster cracking tools. The house alone is an incredible value for the price, but in addition to the house, Joi and her husband run a 'ready to cook live lobster dinner shipping company' and she is currently offering a free lobster dinner for her guests which you can chose to prepare yourself or have cooked for you. We chose to cook ourselves, and it was the most memorable and fun experience we had on our trip. The dinner would have easily cost $300 at a restaurant, and tasted better than any lobster we've ever had. Finally, Joi is also a realestate agent and she arranged properties to show us while we were there. She is an amazing hostess and a stay at her place is highly recommended if you like lobster, are interested in buying property in the area, or just in need of a relaxing getaway in a very comfortable ocean view home.

Owner's Response: Dear Grant,

It was so nice to meet all of you and I'm glad that you enjoyed your time at Tide's Edge. I laugh whenever I think of you telling me that you were all in a "food coma" after your lobster feast. We aim to please!

Best wishes,

Joi

Perfect Maine Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Tide's Edge is a quiet, clean, well-equipped and well-maintained waterfront home. It is close to the highway for road trips, but situated on a quiet road with minimal traffic, making it easy to walk, run or bike around the scenic Yarmouth and nearby island areas. The owners were very responsive to questions and requests, and have taken great care to provide a pleasant rental experience- the lobster dinner was great! The listing and photos describing the home are accurate. The two bedrooms and one bathroom work well for a family. We would definitely stay here again.

Tide's Edge was the perfect place to place. It was central to so many of the things we wanted to do. The house was comfortable, clean, and decorated so nicely. The sun porch was our favorite spot, night and day.We could hardly wait to get up the morning and sit and have breakfast there. We loved watching the birds on their "little" island when the tide was out. Yarmouth had really good restaurants. We found Toot's ice
cream out in the country, worth going to. Joi and Lee were very helpful recommending restaurants and were easy to work with. It was so nice after a day of sight seeing to have such a nice comfortable place to go back too. The lobster dinner was wonderful, we had never cooked our own lobsters before, so it was a treat! I will definately recommend this house to anyone we know who is heading to Maine.

We kept imaging Tide's Edge as our home.

It’s not very often that a Vacation Home Rental is way above your expectations, however Tide’s Edge offered so much that we kept rejoicing that we had found the place. We’ll specifically, our 17 year old daughter, who reminded me “Mom, remember when I told you to come and see the pictures of this place on my laptop…” Indeed, she deserves the credit. I took more pictures and marveled at the beauty of the area. I see why people stay longer than a week, I could have permanently moved in.
We didn’t know of the great, nearby town of Portland, and the old scenic historical part of town before. Since we live in Michigan, we’re not used to seeing architectural, ancient buildings. Bull Fenny’s was about a 300 year old Irish Pub. The sea food is so fresh, tasty and served hot, perfect. The woodwork ornately carved; a feast to the eyes. Every shop owner was so kind, it was ideal. When the nose piece fell off my glasses, I wondered how/where/what to do, and our daughters located an eyeglass place while they shopped separately…it’s so safe. So my husband and I walked over to Optical Expressions at 87 Exchange St. and were welcomed warmly and received a free new set of nose pieces.
Tide’s Edge is the perfect calm place, in the perfect setting. I didn’t know such a quiet street existed. I think the birds make it their mission to sing melodiously to fill the silence. Comical seagulls are creating a four foot circle clam island, with each low tide, they arrive and drop a few more clam shells. It’s a great place to slow down, enjoy wonderful lobster, read a great book, dream…and later, share the memories with your friends over and over again. Thank you so much Joi and Lee!

Tide's Edge is everything shown in the pictures and so so much more. Joi and Lee are very nice and easy to work with. The pictures show how beautiful the house and location is , but what they can't explain in photos is the way it feels
there. Soft gentle breezes coming in the sun porch screens, the kitchen bathed in morning sunlight, the calm serenity of house. Location is close to everything kayaking in Portland, shopping LL Bean etc. We plan to rent this house every year.

A fabulous property in a very secluded spot!

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend staying here. The hosts are very accommodating and helpful, and were incredibly generous with us. The property is wonderful. Very secluded but only 15 mins from either Freeport or Portland. Ready access to walking on Cousin's Isla
