Ocean Park Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 + bedrooms, sleeps 8

This cottage has been in the same family since the early 1940s and has all the amenities and comforts of a year-round home. Just steps from the pristine Ocean Park beach and an easy walk to the quaint town center, the home is the perfect getaway for families who want the quiet and convenience of beach side cottage in a comfortable, friendly and beautiful environment.

From a Maine vacation website:: Ocean-Park is approximately 18 miles south of Portland and is considered part of the Old Orchard Beach area. Founded in 1881 as a summer assembly, Ocean Park is a quiet community that is a world apart from the beach scene at Old Orchard Beach. The town is host to a number of cultural happenings throughout the year that usually take place in the historic Temple, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. The beaches on the 'grand strand,' which is this seven-mile stretch of shoreline from Saco to Scarborough is considered by many to include some of the finest beaches in the country. Besides swimming and other beach activities, all of Ocean Park is a Maine Game Preserve and has miles of beautiful walking trails where you can view a wide variety of wildlife and birds. And, across from Ocean Park is the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge. Ocean Park is a friendly place where you can walk the village streets and residents will stop to speak to you.

Beautiful, Convenient beach house

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a two week stay with our grown children. This a beautifully well maintained house just steps from the beach in a quiet area. The owner is very conscientious about maintenance and cleanliness. The kitchen is well appointed, and there are many extras to make your stay very comfortable. There are views of the ocean from almost every room upstairs, and we found it large enough for eight adults. We can't recommend this cozy, lovely place enough.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a cozy, well maintained, and spacious home away from home, this is your perfect vacation cottage. Ocean Park, Maine is a step back in time – a quaint, quiet, and safe town complete with an ice cream parlor and more in the center of town.

The cottage is located in a lovely neighborhood on a dead-end street. It is one house from the gorgeous beach and easily accommodates 10 people. As repeat renters, we highly recommend this for your next vacation.

Enjoy the peacefulness as you listen to the changing tides. You will not be disappointed with this choice.

If you have never been to Ocean Park, you are in for a wonderful and unique experience. Ocean Park harkens back to a quieter time. The beach itself is quiet and pristine and the surf and fishing are great. Walk for miles on the soft sands and take in the gorgeous sights of offshore islands and lighthouses, just 15 minutes south of Portland and less than 2 hours north of Boston. This is the type of beach town where families come for generation after generation. You can walk by beach or street to the friendly little town center of a library, Soda Fountain for full meals or just ice cream, the rec center, small grocery, and two gift shops. Ocean Park is also a great home base for exploring the Southern Maine and Casco Bay regions. Portland is a classic small New England port city, with renowned shopping, restaurants, historic districts, and entertainment. Just 20 miles from OP is LL Bean and the scores of outlet stores of Freeport.

Other Activities: birdwatching, kayaking
