Wildwood Beach is Quiet and Beautiful: Seals bark off Anderson rock in the night.

Kids can catch clams and crabs at low tide.

Mid to high tide is all sandy beach for a mile of warm wading and swimming.

Clean and quiet, sandcastles and beach towels - often all to yourselves.

Bring your own small boats and launch daily off the beach.

We will build you a stowage rack at the top of the beach ( this protects the beach grass)if we know you have a canoe or kayak.

This is a private association beach shared by the neighborhood, but most of the locals work all summer

and use the beach infrequently.

A parking pass lets you drive down if you don't love the walk to the beach and tennis court.

Ben's grandfather, Herman Sweetser had a farm in Cumberland Center, down the Tuttle Road from the cottage. His family still runs an orchard there.

The cottage was built by his Great Aunt Harriet as a carrige house just before the depression years. The houses on either side were never built. It leaves this cottage as the only real summer house

On the largest wooded lot in the Wildwood association.

Ben or Joan Baxter purchased this cottage in 1967

This is an old enclave of family houses devoted to quiet living, a shared park and a beautiful beach.

The beach is amazingly private and the cottage is one of the last of its kind. Ben's parents added on the big Livingroom in the 70's,

building in the exposed wall style of the original carriage house.

Then, in 2012, Ben and Joan upgraded the bathroom, laundry and

Fireplaces, insulating just enough to make the place 3-season cozy.

Besides the beach and tennis court, the access to Falmouth, Yarmouth and Portland offer easy convenience and access to island and inland explores from a quiet and safe retreat.

CHARMING & CONVENIENT

Charming & Convenient
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent just under a week at this charming cottage with our two dogs. This was such an amazing find for us because we were by the beach - which our dogs loved and only 15mins to Portland and Freeport. We were easily able to spend time in Portland, enjoying the restaurants, shops and breweries and get back to the dogs to walk and feed them. We couldn't have asked for a better place. The cottage is located in a beautiful neighborhood. We felt very much at home. Ben was very helpful in giving us information about the area. We hope to return soon!

ADAPTABLE, AUTHENTIC MAINE CAMP

  • 4 of 5
We needed a place to be close to family that would offer accommodation for our grown kids, accept our cat, and be a place to gather for home cooked meals. This was a genuine Maine camp experience. Everything we needed was there, no frills or worries about prissy stuff. Don't expect matched silverware or electric can operners. The gas fireplaces were marvelous on cold mornings and evenings, drying out the ever-present mist from the nearby cove. We hosted 93 year old grandma along with her 20-something grandkids comfortably. Ben was responsive to questions, and if the sun had shone more we would have enjoyed the deck. Just what we needed. It really is a convenient spot for Portland, Falmouth, Yarmouth, Freeport etc. Nice hikes nearby and plenty of activities.

Owner's Response: Sarah M. and her family took our first rental of the season at the spring rate, enjoyed a predictably foggy June and had a great time.
She gave us wonderfully helpful feedback and we would love to have them back again.
Thanks for getting us started folks.
