Ideal location - very well maintained cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I've been renting summertime cottages in Maine for the past 23 years, and it will be my 4th time at this cottage, which is, by far, the best I've rented. The cottage is clean, bright and airy. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable, and it's a real plus not to have to bring your sheets and bath towels. There is a view of the ocean from the dining room / living room window. Owners are just great, they actually live on the ground floor. They are very knowledgeable about restaurants ans attractions nearby and give EXCELLENT customer service! The location is ideal, just a few steps from Grand Beach, which is also the best I've seen so far in Maine. The beach has a nice, regular slope going in the water (no sharp dip), which makes it a lot safer for children. If you can manage going up a few steps (the cottage is a 2nd floor unit), I highly recommend it. You won't be disappointed!

Great for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been renting in this area of Maine for the past 10 years. Pine Point is such a great area of Maine to visit. We have stayed at this cottage for the last four years, and we always look forward to coming back. The flat has everything you need while away. Accommodations are perfect for a beach get a way. The owners live downstairs and are happy to help in any way needed. There is plenty to do and see in the area. Our favorite spots are Bailey's ice cream, the nature walk nearby, OOB for the kids and the beach 99% of our visit. We know Portland is near by, but honestly, we are so happy to enjoy the beach, we never venture into the city. I would highly recommend this flat to anyone interested in vacationing in the area.

A great resting spot in Maine

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four that has been staying at this cottage for over 5 years, and it is always the highlight of our summer.

The cottage is very clean and maintained. Andrea and her parents upgrade the cottage every year, and are very responsive to questions/requests from customers.

The cottage itself is great for a family vacation. It is has a well-equipped kitchen to prepare meals, an eating area, a newly renovated bathroom, and plenty of room to kick back and relax.

The location of the cottage is a huge plus. Pine Point Beach is outstanding, offering a great mix of nicely low tide (great for young children) and a more active high tide (great for older children), allowing for a huge range of activities on the beach. Plus, this section of the beach usually has lots of other young families on it, making it a family-friendly area.

The cottage is also nicely centrally located, making trips to Old Orchard Beach, Scarborough and Kittery for shopping, Portland, Kittery, and FunTown SplashTown easy excursions.

We can't wait to come back again this year!

Best of Pine Point

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation spot in the Pine Point - Old Orchard area. Quiet, peaceful and serene. Just steps from the beach. Every amenity is provided. From linens to kitchen to beach chairs, no need has been overlooked. Lovely views of the ocean from the living room/dining room. Backyard picnic table and grill. Convenient parking. Just a short drive from attractions. We were delighted with our stay.

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here the week of July 14th and had a wonderful time. The cottage is so close to the beach it was easy to walk back to the house if needed. The weather was great and the beach was never crowded, you could have space for your family or group with out being on top of others. The location is great, it's about 2 miles to Old Orchard Beach and close to restaurants. The house itself it great and they have everything you might need inside. There were plenty of towles, utensils and dishes. Outside there are chairs, umbrellas and things for the beach. The place is a decent size, although small it is spread out nicely and with 4 adults and a 3 year old we didn' t feel crowded. The owner was great and was available to answer questions and to check in and make sure everything was going well. We look forward to returning next year!!

Wonderful! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well stocked with items such as linens, towels, and cookware. The location is wonderful, just a very short walk to the beach. The owners are very friendly and easy to work with. I am very familiar with the area, but I thought it was a nice touch that they have directions to the nearest grocery store, local take-out menus, and a phone book. There were plenty of books for me to read while lounging on the beach. The cottage is a very comfortable, inviting place. I would absolutely recommend this property to others. I'm hoping to return again next year!
