About Marie Koerick
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
Why Marie Koerick chose Falmouth Foreside
I love 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. It is steps from the beach )less than 30 yards and a kayak rack is available. I am not right on the beach but have limited water views from my windows as shown in my photos.
What makes this Cottage unique
Because this is my lovely home it is decorated with my own belongings and is furnished with items I treasure 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 have recently (2015/16) updated the entire house. I have added new furniture, windows, bathroom, new washer dryer, a new roof and newly upholstered chairs, etc. I use quality sheets and towels and I have added special touches. It is not your average beach rental.

Quintessential coastal cottage!
Spent 3 glorious weeks at Marie's heavenly seaside abode. Beautifully decorated and very well stocked. Mere steps to the beach. Even kayaks are provided! Can't wait to do it again.
Thank you so much. So glad you enjoyed your stay. The neighbors loved you too.
Come any time.
Great location, lovely cottage with water views and access to beach!
Perfect rental, well equipped even for a large Thanksgiving Dinner! Home had everything you need. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Great location in the Foreside.
Loved staying in this beautiful place. It was comfortable and quiet. The perfect getaway.
Charming cottage and owner.
Convenient to visit our family in Falmouth, as well as, Portland and that coast.
PERFECT spot for a quiet retreat!
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.
Perfect Maine Cottage!
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!
I am so glad you took advantage of all the cottage has to offer. The location is very central to Maines charming coastline towns and the beach only steps from the door. It's sounds like you took advantage of everything . Please come again.
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.
