CHARMING, FAMILY-FRIENDLY NEW ENGLAND STYLE HOME

Portland House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom home located close to USM Campus and Downtown Portland

This spacious three bedroom home is located in a residential neighborhood close to the University of Southern Maine’s campus. Within close proximity you will find:

• Hadlock Field, home to the Portland Sea Dogs minor league baseball team

• Deering Oaks Park, hosts the Portland Farmers Market Saturday mornings 7am-12

• Back Bay trails offer breathtaking views for jogging, walking or biking

Portland is located approximately 100 miles from Boston, and is known for its historic working waterfront. Transportation links are provided by Amtrack from Boston and the Portland International Jetport, both with easy access to the city. Other area attractions lie within a twenty minute drive include Portland Headlight, Fort Williams, beautiful salt water beaches, several golf courses and world renowned LL Bean flagship store in Freeport. It's easy to catch a ferry from the Old Port that will take you out to islands in Casco Bay for a day trip.

This cozy, family-friendly location will allow you to experience why Forbes Magazine recognizes Portland as the most livable small city in America. Portland’s cultural offerings include the downtown galleries of the Arts District, First Friday art walk celebrations, the Portland Museum of Art, Portland Symphony Orchestra, a dynamic live music scene, well preserved architecture and eclectic microbreweries. The creative, seasonal “real food” dining culture here is one of the best on the East Coast - as regularly noted by The New York Times.

My wife and I currently reside in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. We are originally from Portland and have recently invested in this house (September 2012) as a place to stay while back home visiting (and to motivate us to come back home more often). We are confident that you will feel just as 'at-home' while vacationing here in the wonderful City of Portland, Maine.

Frank & Michaelanne Cangelosi purchased this house in 2012

We chose this property to purchase due to the central location of everything greater Portland has to offer. This neighborhood is family friendly, safe, and as close as you can be to the downtown area while still having the relaxation and serenity of a quiet neighborhood.

Automobile not necessary to take advantage of everything Portland has to offer but is recommended for the short drive to beaches, outlet shopping, and the many wonderful hiking areas on the out-skirts of Portland. Bike rentals are always an option from several nearby locations.

Great home base for exploring Southern Maine

  • 5 of 5
This house was a great find. It is in a quiet residential neighborhood near Univ of Southern Maine and around the corner from the Portland Sea Dogs stadium. Highway access was 2 turns away, making it easy to get onto I-295 to explore from Kittery to Harpswell. The house was well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, spices, salt/pepper, oil, really good knives, dishwasher detergent, and most all of the condiments we could imagine. There is no air conditioning, except for a window unit in the master bedroom, but fans in the bedrooms made things OK even though it hit 88 degrees most of the week we were there. The backyard is a nice oasis to sit outside and eat dinner or have a glass of wine (and there were 8 wine glasses with the house as well).

The owner was really clear with us on this when we communicated but I want to point out that the "1/2 bath" in the basement lacks walls, making the toilet a perch from which one can see out the basement windows to the driveway (and vice versa). The washer/dryer are nice and new and it was great to be able to take clean clothes home. On the last day, there was a problem with the drain from the kitchen sink and the owners' father was there within 20 minutes to fix the problem.

We'd highly recommend this house. It doesn't sit on a picturesque cove but the very affordable rental cost allowed us the budget to do all the activities we wanted.

We Loved it in Portland. This house was perfect for our family, we brought the in-laws and a teenager. The home was close to everything we wanted to do. Alot of good spaces to hang out and be comfortable. Flowers were in bloom and beautiful. We saw the local Sea Dogs baseball game, it's so close. We also enjoyed several trips to the local beaches, the lighthouse in Portland and several trips to Kennebunkport. We enjoyed and miss the lobster and crab rolls. It rained a couple days but cleared up before any of our activities.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5
House was very nice and we loved Portland! Beds and linens were nice and comfortable. It is an older home so had a lot of character and updated for the most part. We had some problems with circuit breakers being over utilized so occasionally things would turn off. The weather was fabulous in August. Nice cool evenings and mornings. We would have loved to been able to enjoy the yard more but there was not really any nice patio furniture or seating area outside. The owner although far away was always accessible by phone when we needed something or had a question. We would definitely rent here again! and hope to be back soon!

Owner's Response: Mandi,

Thanks for your feedback. Yes, older homes can be quirky but the charm they have is well worth it. I agree about outdoor furniture and is certainly next on this list for acquiring. Glad you enjoyed your stay and looking forward to having you back next year.

We couldn't of asked for a better house as well as location for our week vacation in Maine. The house was spotless, extremely comfy and state of the art. It truly felt like our house away from home because of all the amenities...they even had Netflix on the flat screens. It was situated on a very nice street in Portland and close to everything...5-7 beaches 5 to 10 minutes away, Portland SeaDogs Minor league Baseball right around the corner. Museums, theaters and the Wharf a few minutes away. We even steamed lobsters ($3.75 a pound!) in their kitchen that has everything you could need. We cant wait to go back.
THX Frank & Michaelanne for everything!

Four night stay in Portland

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful and very comfortable home. The representation, both pictures and descriptions were completely accurate. The location is convenient and in a pleasant neighborhood. The kitchen is well stocked and provisioned. The bathroom linens are very good quality. Communication with the owners was excellent. Frank was so helpful and a complete pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend this property!

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This home was absolutely wonderful!
After traveling from the UK with my Partner and 5 year old (20 hours total), it was great coming into this home and feeling like it was my own. There is a wonderful yard for my kid to play in, a soft chair to read in, A/C to escape the heat and the neighbors are very friendly.
You couldn't ask for a better location. 5 minutes from the airport and the mall. 1 minute from the ballpark.
We are defiantly staying here again when we visit family in Portland.
