About the property

4 Bedroom, 1.5 baths - sleeps 8

The house is just a short walk from the ocean - plenty of sea treasures to find on daily walks, small waves at low tide to play in or just a great place to relax. The community has a great family appeal with plenty of kids at the beach and people who return to this area year after year. Also, in the Saco area are 2 amusements parks, 2 water parks and a great state park to ride bikes. Saco/Ferry Beach is 20 minutes from Portland which has the best restaurants in Maine - it was name by Bon Appetit as the 'Foodiest Small Town in America. ' Saco is also close to Kennebunkport, Freeport (home of LL Bean) and Kittery (great outlet shopping).

The house has 2 bedrooms (one has 2 twin beds and one has 2 full beds) and a half bath on the top floor. On the main floor is a full bathroom and bedroom with a queen bed. The fourth bedroom is downstairs/basement and has a full bed. There is a kitchen stocked with everything you need including a lobster pot. There is a private deck in the back.

Great place, quiet and clean

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this place. It was quiet, very comfortable and well maintained. However, the room downstairs was ok for our teenage boy but there was no window and there was an oily smell. The beach was nice with the Ferry Beach State Park accessible by walk. There was no wave for body surfing so we had to go to other beaches by car. Overall, it was a nice week but I would recommend it for young family.

Great cottage, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this wonderful cottage and we had a wonderful time. Cottage was very well cleaned and smelled wonderfully upon our arrival. We were two families so we used all four bedrooms and there was plenty of space for all, with everyone scattered over 3 floors. Living space is plenty spacious. Dining room sits 8 perfectly. Everything was recently renovated, including new beautiful floors. The beautiful large deck extends the living space and has a large patio set that fits 8 people very easily. Plenty of extra chairs. Beach cart is a Cadillac! The HBO package on TV was a great hit with big and small. The cottage location is really perfect: a few houses down the road to get to the beach. Extremely quiet neighbourhood and very friendly neighbours. Added bonus: ferry beach association run ice cream store at beach entrance, just one street over. Very inexpensive too! Cottage owner very pleasant and responsive during the transaction. We would highly recommend this cottage and hope to come back again next year. For this price range: you just can't beat the location, size and interior finishes. We miss it already!
