House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6) VERY close to an almost private beach!
Everyone loves this completely renovated 2-bedroom cottage 'High View', with a view of the Saco inlet and is just a stone's throw from one of Maine's best rated beaches! It is located on a side street and next to the mouth of the Saco River!
We also have a 3 br home next door which we also rent if you need to accommodate multi families. See here vrbo #370618
Wonderfully decorated and renovated. Third property from the beach. New windows in 2015, completely resided the outside in 2016 and painting the inside in May 2017.
Hill's Beach is very quiet and just far enough to get away from all the tourist beaches. For the most part, the only people who frequent this area of beach are those who live on the street, approximately 10 houses. So the large, sandy beach is almost all yours!
With an outside shower, you can rinse off with warm water after coming up from the beach!
If you have kids (like our family), you will enjoy the peace of mind being on a side street with very little traffic and the large yard for the kids to run and play while they wait for you to go to the beach. Once on the beach you will find a majestic, panoramic view of islands and a jetty...It is fabulous!
Note: Linens are not provided. Signed rental agreement must be submitted after booking.
Thanks! Hope you get to enjoy Maine this summer!

Why Jonathan and Carrie Cronkhite: Owners chose Biddeford
I (Jonathan) grew up down the road. I still have family is up there that lives down the street. Our family loves coming up for a couple weeks every summer. It's a great get-a- way. So peaceful. Not a lot of distractions which creates great family time! The smell of salt in the air, playing on the beach, fishing, swimming, walking to the island and regrouping as a family are our highlights.

Clean well kept close to the beach
Nice rental for a couple or small family. Helpful owners. Nice summer spot.
Maine Family Vacation
This was our first vacation in Maine and High View was a wonderful place to enjoy our week. It is just steps from the beach, as well as centrally located for short trips to Portland, Freeport and Kennebunk. We loved the uncrowned beach and the spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Saco River. Low tide here is nothing short of amazing-one has the ability to walk about a half mile into the ocean. The apartment is adorable and very comfortable. We also appreciated being able to bring our 2 dogs along on vacation. We will definitely return to Maine and to High View!
High View Rocks!
Our family had a wonderful vacation and loved our visit. The cottage is clean, convenient and "just right" for us. We love the beach and are so thankful we can bring our labradoodle, too. Thank you for sharing your home!
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Our puppy is a part of our family and know how important it is to take her along with us. So glad you already booked for next year. We are filling up fast!

My husband and I, along with our Chihuahua, just spent two fantastic weeks at this Hills Beach home. My family and I have been renting vacation homes from Maine to Florida, and many states in-between, over the past 16 years. This is the first review I have ever felt compelled to write. The house was very clean, well-maintained, and quite comfortable. The kitchen had all you needed for making dinner at home. There is a very nice outdoor dining set along with a charcoal grill. The beach was beautiful and quiet. It was a great walk out to both Basket Island and Stage Island when the tide was out. There are a couple of markets near by for those quick coffee or ice cream runs. Not to mention all the wonderful local restaurants in the area.
We met Jonathan and two of his boys when we first arrived. They were quite nice and very pleasant to speak with. Jonathan was very responsive to any questions that came up both before and during our stay. Jonathan also rents out a three bedroom house right next door on the same property. My sister, mother, and nephew stayed there during these same two weeks. It was wonderful having them right next door. I can same the same great things about that house as well.
We have already decided that we will be renting these same two houses again next year....I'd better hurry up and get that set up before the weeks we want get booked.

We also enjoyed meeting you and your family and friends. Thanks for writing a review to let others know how enjoyable our homes are. We strive to provide a wonderful vacation for all and love having y'all come back. Stay warm this winter and we'll see you in June. :)
