Amazing House and Destination

  • 5 of 5
This house is unbelievable - it successfully feels like a home while at the same time looking like a museum. The architecture and decor are gorgeous, with nearly all original features and woodwork.

From the well-appointed kitchen to the large grill on the porch; from the incredibly large common areas on the first floor to the many bedrooms on the second/third floors, this house has plenty of room and charm for any group. And the game room on the third floor is breath-taking with the dark wood interior, pool table, and card room.

The location is easy to get to and super-accessible, allowing for walking through down-town Saco, short drive into Biddeford or about a 15-minute drive to Portland. When we stayed there we went to a Sea Dogs game and a night out in Portland and it was very convenient. The beach is not far either!

We found the owners to be very nice and helpful and our group had a wonderful time at this house. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a place that can sleep a good number of people and has a ton of character. And when you figure out what a function hall might cost for a reunion or a block of hotel rooms, this is probably a much better option (at least in my opinion)!

Great house for a large family

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed a 5-day stay at the home. Noah was great about being in contact, meeting up, and going over the house. The house was a great fit for our group, which ranged in age from 5 to nearly 80. It was comfortable, clean and fun. We did lots of cooking in the kitchen, and found it to be well-stocked and easy to work in. The only thing I would point out to potential renters is that the house is at a busy intersection and traffic can be very loud. There are a lot of motorcycles and emergency vehicles passing right by the house, day and night. It wasn't a big deal for us, but if you're a light sleeper, you might consider that.

Best_week_of_the_Summer

  • 5 of 5
The listing and pictures describing the place were very accurate. Our family had a great time enjoying the clean and neat place, as well as the character of the house. The owner was very flexible and accommodating to our requests. The only concern that we had at times was the traffic noise outside, since it is located right on Route 1 in the center of town. It is only a few minutes from very nice beaches, restaurants, and other attractions. I would go back again on our next trip to Maine.

Great home for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful Victorian home. It had a great updated kitchen well stocked for cooking. It was spacious enough to accommodate several families and offered privacy with two upstairs levels. The downstairs level offered a great space for everyone to be together. The owner was very easy to work with. We had a fantastic stay!

What a beautiful venue for an intimate gathering!

  • 5 of 5
I have a small company and wanted to have an offsite event for my employees. The John B Gregory house was the perfect fit! Everyone had an amazing time! This house has so much character and has been meticulously cared for.The kitchen is well suited to prepare any meal, and we used the front parlor for an exquisite buffet. The main parlor has plenty of space for a small reception and the third floor game room offers billiards,a card table and mini bar ( we made terrific martinis!) Great spot, hopefully will stay there again!

The kitchen is modern with ice maker water dispensing fridge, convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, huge sink and stone counter tops. You are welcome to use the washer dryer which is just off the kitchen on the first floor. We have a colossal stainless grill located on the screened in porch. The home has lots of antiques and curious cozy corners so the is house is impressive, massive and yet always a place to get away get comfortable with a book which we have plenty of. Planning a family gathering? A place for family and friends attending a wedding? A reunion of friends or family? This home has plenty of room for all and if splitting the cost amongst six bedrooms quite economical compared to a hotel stay.
