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

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

PERFECT spot for a quiet retreat!

  • 5 of 5

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

out.

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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.

This is a beautiful home with a wonderful view of the water.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Charming cottage in a great location

  • 4 of 5

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!

Perfect for our "wedding trip" in Falmouth!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Misleading!

  • 1 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: I spoke and e-mailed with this guest many times. The house was thoroughly cleaned as it always is. I have never had complaints and the house is always in great condition. I have never heard of the kind of things that she mentioned. Only 6 weeks previous to her arrival I was at the house to have all new windows put in. All new window treatment and blinds replaced. A new roof put on. All new sheets, towels, throw rugs, etc. The house had been repainted inside and there was a new sink, washer/dryer. New couches and living room furniture. New re upholstery, kitchen stools, etc. It was perfect. I asked her to be specific and she said things were outdated in the bathroom. This was totally untrue. (All soaps are left new in boxes, towels, were new and throw rugs are replaced for each guest). She then mentioned a basket of miscellaneous extras left in the master bedroom e.g. bug spray, razors, deodorant, small shampoos that I leave as a complimentary item. This is what she described as dated items- which she then tossed out. There was a new plant in the living room (all plants were replaced 6 weeks previous') She took it out and said that it was getting dust mites. She watered my plants, which seemed also to be an issue. She found leaves outside... also an issue When asked how the window sills can be dirty on new windows she sent a photo of one small window where outside leaves had gotten stuck when opened. She was unhappy that my cookie sheet was not new ???? My neighbors and cleaning person went in to assure me that the house was in lovely condition, although as she mentioned the glass on the two small antique pictures in the upstairs bathroom may have had spots on them. This was all bogus and done, apparently as a way to ask for money back, although that was never mentioned. Marie
