First, the owner is amazing! She is kind, efficient, friendly and truly cares if you are having a great time in her home. The home is clean and much bigger on the inside than appears on the outside. We had 8 people and a small dog and there was more than enough room for everyone. The house is comfortable and felt like home within minutes of arriving. The back yard was great for family cook outs and the location is excellent. Within an 8-10 minute walk to the beach and pier. Close enough to the action but far enough away to enjoy peace in the evenings. In addition to the selection of board games in the house the neighbors had great tips for things to do in the rain and everyone in the area is very friendly. Every morning we'd walk the dog and meet folks who would greet us with a smile and conversation. There are 2 grocery stores (Hannafords and Shaws) about a 5 minute drive from the house. At the end of our stay the owner, Judith greeted us and took the time to ask how our trip was. We will definitely be back! I will be recommending The Sea Star to anyone who wants to vacation in the Old Orchard Beach area.
Thank you Judith for a great family vacation filled with memories that will last us a lifetime.

I have vacationed at the Sear Star Cottage with my family for a week every July for the last three years. The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood but is within easy walking distance of the beach and The Pier. It's homey with all the ammenities and we have a wonderful time every year. I highly recommend this cottage for family vacations!
