PROUTS NECK, STEPS TO THE BEACH

Scarborough and Pine Point House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Our wonderful summer cottage has been in the family for 100 years. We are on a pretty lane which dead ends at the beach. The beach at Prouts Neck is one of the most private and beautiful in the world. Our home is very comfortable for parents and children or grandparents and family due to having 5 bedrooms, 4 are upstairs, as are two bathrooms, and one bedroom with en suite bath is downstairs.

Our floors are painted an attractive blue-gray and we have new windows & screens. We don't have or need A/C. This is Maine, by the water!! There is one TV, in our living room. Tons of new and old books in the Dining room/library.

We're a 2 hour drive from Boston. There's an airport in Portland. We're around 15 minutes to Portland and the fabulous Exchange Street restaurants and shops. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to stay at ''Prouts''. We often go to Freeport for shopping at L.L. Bean and all the other great shops, then come home and hit the beach to regain our strength.

Further Details: The hustle and bustle of Old Orchard Beach, and the summerstock theatre in Ogunquit are wonderful fun. We also love going to Kennebunkport, to gallery hop.

The house was exactly what we were looking for. The kids loved all the history that was evident through all the books, photos and artwork -- a real compilation over time. A great family vacation!

Owner's Response: I'm so delighted that our house was all you had hoped it would be. By next summer, we are planning to have a brand new fridge which can make ice and chilled water. We are repainting the floors in Spring of 2014 and making other little improvements, as always. Please come back again.

Charming Prouts Neck House

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We had a wonderful stay at this charming home in Prouts Neck. It is super close to the beach so we could walk down day and evening. Evenings were beautiful there as the tide goes way out and we could walk the beach and search for Sea glass. The cottage itself is so charming and had everything we needed. The bathrooms are newly updated and the washer and dryer in the house is so helpful! The house is much larger than it appears by photos which was a nice surprise. There is plenty of room for family members to visit. My children loved the room with the pool table, and were able to learn to play for the first time. The neighbors were lovely, and so helpful with advice for getting around town. I was so thankful to get back to this area where I had vacationed as a child. Thank you again for sharing your home with us. We truly appreciated it!!

Owner's Response: Your letter thrilled me. I love it when our old family home gives people the opportunity to "go home again". We would love to have you come back and will do everything we can to make you as happy next time.

prouts neck beach house

Our stay at prouts neck was great, every detail for a wonderful time was thought out. Mike and Chou Chou have a fantastic beach house. There was enough room for everyone, including the dog. The area is so quiet at night and the days are just what you need for a relaxing vacation. The residents of garrison lane were very friendly and helpful with any questions we had about the area. Just a great place to have a family vacation.

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 28, 2011
  • Stayed: Jun 2011
My husband, myself, our two grown sons and a girlfriend spent a week here in June 2011. Despite several rainy and cold days (thankful for the great propane heater in the living room!), we had a wonderful time in this clean, well-equipped, and comfortable cottage. There is no need to bring anything with you to stay here. It's all been thought out for you, right down to multiple beach towels and a washer and dryer to stay on top of the laundry that being at the beach brings with it. This is a safe and quiet neighborhood and the beach is literally just a walk down the dead-end lane. The beach itself is adjacent to Scarborough Beach, which has a lifeguard. The owner was helpful and friendly, and checked in with us during our stay. No complaints, only thanks!

Owner's Response: Oh this is so sweet...I never look at reviews and never noticed it till April 2012...or I would have thanked you sooner!! Please come again.
