'SEA HAVEN' 3 BR OCEANFRONT PLUS SHORT WALK TO FORTUNES ROCKS BEACH

Biddeford House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 full plus 1 half bathroom (sleeps 6)

Waterfront home on sheltered cove--rocks, sand, sea glass!

Incredible Views of rocky coast from open deck + 3 rooms with huge windows, incl. bedroom!

Eat while watching Lobster Boats come into cove to tend their traps!

Best of both worlds: beside Short Beach plus short walk to Long Public Beach for surfing or running with the sea at your feet and wind in your hair!

Water in every direction.

Character: delightful diamond-pane old windows, French doors

Cottage towards back of property also has ocean views, in case other family members or friends want to be nearby. See HomeAway #3469463 .

Internet, DirecTV, Books.

The beautiful white sand beaches of Biddeford offer a getaway vacation that you will want to return to every summer--and this cottage offers the perfect spot. Enjoy watching sparkling water and waves breaking on the rocks, from the comfort of your living room or deck. Wade in the sheltered waters on the small beach just a few steps away, or stroll down to jump in the waves on the 3-mile-long beach just over the hill--Fortunes Rocks is known for its beaches, and surfers visit all year!

The quiet small beach and the splashing public beach are as different as night and day, and this house is one of the very few giving you the best of both.

One very special bedroom has huge windows looking out over the cove and beach, for peaceful sunrise and glorious sunsets. What could be more romantic than watching the moon cross the sky with moonlight glittering on the water below!

Stroll out into the yard and enjoy the flowers, then step onto the beach to explore rock pools at the edge of the sea. Sit on the beach with the light breeze and the sand between your toes--the kids can make sand castles in the fresh salty air.

Town is only a few minutes away, where you can discover that the historic districts of Biddeford and Saco provide delightful walks. New development has brought cafes (including Panera Bread!) and ethnic restaurants. The mills have been transformed by artisans, woodworkers and many small businesses in the new loft spaces on the island in the Saco River. History and architecture buffs will enjoy the “Museum on the Streets” self-guided walking tour. Scenic river views may be enjoyed from trails, a gazebo and benches.

Funtown, aquaboggin & shopping malls are nearby: To the north, there is Old Orchard (15 minutes), Portland (a half hour), and Freeport's LL Bean store just beyond. To the south, Boston is an hour and a half, Kennebunkport just 15 minutes, and the shopping at Kittery in between.

Boater's paradise: there is a boat launch on the Saco River; kayak rentals for the river/salt marshes to the north/the ocean! There are lobster boats, fishing boats, boats to whale-watch!

Artists paint islands and lighthouses at Biddeford Pool, and visit galleries from Perkins Cove to Kennebunkport.

Naturalists can walk the beach, the salt marshes, woods, and fields, watching for birds, chipmunk, woodchuck, beaver, fox, wild turkey, deer, moose, ... Bigfoot?!!? Well, what's a summer without a little adventure? Maine is Vacationland, and 'Sea Haven' at Fortunes Rocks has the best location of all.

Near shopping, arts, theatre, antiques, book sales, whale watch, fishing, kayaking, lobster!

Perfect for just resting and rejuvenating in the salty air!

Getting there: Apart from driving, or flying to Boston (BOS) or Porland (PWM), you could even come by train! The new Amtrak station, opened in 2009, is notable for being the first green design train station in the U.S., featuring a wind turbine for electricity, geothermal heating and cooling systems, and a roof made from recycled soda bottles.

Perfect vacation

Our family of 4 adults, 2 kids and 2 dogs have spent a memorable vacation at this house. The bedrooms are spacious, the kitchen is well equipped and the dining room is breathtaking. We loved that their was a private beach (perfect with kids and dogs !) and that we were just a short walk (7 min) from the beautiful Fortunes Rocks beach. The patio was definitively our favorite spot of the house; we spent all our evenings chatting to the sound of the waves (the house does have 3 TVs...we did not open them once !). We will definitely go back next year !
Pour les Québécois qui cherchent le calme du Maine tout en étant près des villes plus touristiques, cette location est pour vous. Nous sommes tombés sous le chrame de cette maison sise sur les rochers avec la mer à nos pieds...les deux semaines nous ont semblées bien courtes !

Wonderful views

Our family of six stayed for a week at this lovely home on the ocean and had the most peaceful and restorative time. The house is older, not modern 'new build', but had the amenties needed for a quiet vacation. While it does not have a dishwasher or washing machine, we found that we didn't miss those items or the noise they make. There is tv(we seldom had on) and internet access. The house sits directly on a private cove with stunning views, surf sounds and plenty of sea glass and tumbled rocks for hours of hunting and discovery. The cove is perfect - sheltered and warm enough for swimming, but with waves and movement for true ocean sound and sights. There are big boulders to climb and plenty of sand for building castles. The property feels secluded, yet is in easy distance of anything one might need. The week was truly an old-fashioned Maine vacation - a bike-riding, lobster eating, family card game playing relaxing time!
