Quiet private Maine Cottage near private Beach: A week is not enough time to enjoy the beach, tour the coast, take a windjammer sail up in Camden, shop in Freeport, antique your way through the charming villages along the coast. There is downtown Portland with its Ferry boats to the islands. Visit quaint Kennebunkport, 1/2 hour to the south. Enjoy our wonderful Maine seafood restaurants. The very best adventure is to kayak along the coast. Even beginners can get the hang of it At the end of the day bring the fire pit and wood to the beach for a sunsit cocktail. Charming seaside neighborhood and private beach will help you get away from it all.
I was raised in the NYC area and raised my kids in the Villanova area of Pennsylvania. I moved to Falmouth and this cottage in 2001 and fell in love with the neighborhood. I have been rehabbing and updating the house over the years bringing it to its current lovely condition after purchasing it in 2007.
Marie Koerick purchased this cottage in 2007
I fell in love with Maine and the charming, quaint and upscale Foreside area along the water. This house is located on a quiet private street and yet only minutes to downtown Portland. Its the best of all worlds. The beach is private, the evenings quiet and the neighbors are delightful. While visiting my now growing family around the country I enjoy sharing my home with others.
Because this is my lovely home it is decorated with my own belongings and is furnished with items I treausure and my own paintings. I share these things with those who rent it and it has been my experience that my renters appreciate and care for it in a special way. I continue to update and add new items on a yearly basis. this year I have added new couches, new washer dryer, a new roof and newly upholstered chairs. I have quality sheets and towels and I have added special touches. It is not your average beach rental.
My husband and I spent a lovely long Thanksgiving weekend
at 18 Glen Road.
The house is cute, very clean, well supplied with everything from
soap and shampoo to eggs and bacon in the fridge. The owner
clearly cares for her guests.
The house has two bed rooms, one up one down. It is on a very
quiet dead end road, parking is available, but tight, as the listing points
The house is not "on the water" but has views of Casco Bay from both floors.
One can walk to the rocky beach in about 30 seconds.
This is the perfect spot for a quiet retreat, yet is close to all of the attractions
of Portland and Freeport.
We would recommend.
A few girlfriends and I had a kid-free getaway celebrating our 40th birthdays! We chose this sweet little cottage in Maine because of it's central location. We were able to go shopping at the outlets in Freeport, wine-tasting, and hiking all very conveniently from this location. Portland was so close, it was really easy to go to dinner there too. The best part was on my friend's actual birthday, we bought steamed lobsters and corn at the town landing store (along with some wine!) and brought some beach chairs from the house and sat at the local beach and watched the sunset while having a feast! The cottage was low-key, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. I would love to go back with my family and even bring the kids next time!
We had such a good time here. The house is so attractive and the views are fantastic. We really appreciated the welcoming and friendly neighbors too. They gave us names of sights to explore and restaurants to try. The area is amazing. It was a treat to walk through the neighborhood and the market was fun for morning coffees.
This two story roomy cottage has a fully equipped kitchen and is perfect for 3-4 people. It is nicely furnished in all rooms and provides privacy between the two levels. We made it's location a base for day trips to nearby coastal towns and attractions. Many extra amenities are included as advertised. We would stay again!
The cottage was ideal for two couples, as there are two floors, each with a private bath and bedroom and each with a gracious living/ seating area. Bay views with the beach a few steps from the door and an accommodating and helpful owner were bonuses. A lovely stay!
The photos of the property are absolutely lovely, however they must have been taken a few years ago.
The property lists that there is parking for at least one car. There is parking off road for only about half of a car. This small road is frequently used to launch kayaks, and they come dangerous close to any car parked "off road."
The lounge chairs outside had a collection of leaves and debris under the cushions. The deck was broken/rotted in two places, which could cause injury. The inside hadn't been cleaned in quite some time.
Upon our arrival we cleaned the kitchen pendant lights which were coated with grease. The oven was too dirty to use. We had wanted to cook in the kitchen but after trying to scrub the pans, we gave up and bought a new one. The kitchen floor was filthy, as well. It was not the clean green that shows in the photo. (Why are the photos dated 2018?) Scuff marks are on the walls in the stairwell. There were fingernail clippings on the floor upstairs in the living area. We had to vacuum , after emptying a vacuum packed with dirt. Overall, the house was sticky feeling, and unclean.
We notified the homeowner, who claimed the home had been cleaned. She was sent photos of the home showing how the cleanliness of the home had been neglected. We would have appreciated an apology and perhaps a small refund for our troubles. This was not the case, however. This is why I am compelled to write this honest review.
The neighborhood was lovely and it offers and easy walk to the water. There are excellent choices of restaurants within a five mile radius. Crescent Beach on Cape Elizabeth was worth the 25 minute ride. The beach is a mile long and offers bathrooms, a changing area, and a small snack bar. The Town Landing store is a quick walk from this cottage.They sell food, sandwiches, and alcohol.
In Maine's beautiful Falmouth Foreside neighborhood, this charming cottage is located in a quiet, upscale area 7 minutes from Portland in a perfect setting steps from a private beach. It is also only 15 minutes south of Freeport. Walk to the famous Town Landing Store for fresh Lobster. A perfect day trip is 1-1/2 hours along the coast to Camden, where you can take an afternoon excursion on a Windjammer. Don''t forget to viset the top of Mt. Battie to enjoy the panoramic views and stop in beautiful Wiscasset on the way home. Only 1/2 hour to the South is Kennebunkport with its charming shops and seaside dining.
