This perfect Maine cottage is located minutes from many beautiful beaches and Oceanside activities. The location is convenient to Downtown Portland which offers fantastic restaurants, museums, shopping and waterfront activities. You are also a short drive to waterparks in Saco and outlet shopping in Freeport.
Well presented on this rental site. No need to go into Portland, with Kate's butter, above the dam jam (blueberry), and great English muffins from C-salt serving as our daily breakfast and more than enough hardware to cook. Sit at this dinner table, and be amazed at the view.
Still too much of a tourist to have avoided LL Bean and Boothbay and Kennebunk, but oh well, next time we'll just be able to sit here and watch the bay. I suppose master bedroom is downstairs, but we picked upper bedroom with nice deck and opened the sliding doors to hear the surf and smell the air. Abandoned by our family who should have filled the house, we did go into Portland for dinner, at Fore Street, but found the Black Point Inn equally creditable, and enjoyed the anti-lobster (turkey!) at the Good Table. As we left foliage was near peak, though still green in Boston. All of Boston was heading North to leaf peep. Dirt road and woods makes it seem so much more secluded than it is in reality, and we loved that part of the approach. Say hello to Izzy, a puppy nearby.
We (2 adults, two kids) spent a great week here, blessed by wonderful summer weather. The house is very clean and well appointed and everything works well. The 180+ degree views are fabulous and it is particularly exciting electric storm watching. The bedrooms are very comfortable - there is nothing better than drifting off to sleep with the sound of the waves. Peabbles Point is a pleasant little community of (it would seem) both permanent and summer vacation residents; the relatively close proximity of other houses in no way impacted on our peace and quiet. Cape Elizabeth is a lovely corner of the world - some good beaches, great ice cream at Kettle Cove, excellent deli sandwiches at Sea Salt back on Route 77, a couple of top class bakeries in South Portland and easy access to the amenities of Portland itself. We definitely hope to come back in the next few years.
Cottage was just as shown in pictures...lovely. Views are fantastic and ever changing. A great location. Convenient to all...numerous lighthouses, tourist sights, downtown Portland and the airport. Lots of good restaurants nearby: Rudy's(Cape Elizabeth), Saltwater Grille(South Portland), and DiMillo's(Portland). Well stocked kitchen. My husband and I had a great week. Would return again.
Everything said in other reviews are well stated and spot on, so I will just say it is a great place to spend your vacation. This is a wonderful spot and the house is so well appointed that my wife wants to take it home with us, and she is design freak. We very comfortable and enjoyed the ambience. It was supplied with all the goodies you may need, so check it out before you load up on all of your groceries, etc, Beach access is the only drawback and there would be limited space for kids to roam and play around the cottage. Not a problem for the two of us and we got our excercise traveling to the many higliights and hiking in some. Highly recommended and would look forward to another stay.
The house is even more beautiful than the listing pictures suggest with lots of beautiful decor and all the possible amenities provided (lots of beach towels, a huge washer and dryer and all sorts of cooking and serving utensils to use in the kitchen.) The view is unsurpassable and the location is as peaceful as it gets. The fireplaces weren't working for our stay but we didn't want or need them. My family of four (with 2 children under the age of 7) enjoyed the most amazing week-long vacation there. We look forward to coming back.
We arrived with two small children ahead of two huge winter storms. There was no better place on Earth to sit and watch the winter weather. My children were mesmerized and so was I. The radiant heat floors and fireplace kept us cozy. The views kept us entertained! The design of the house is extremely well thought through. Every amenity well appointed. The owners were a delight to work with. I've traveled all over the world and this is one of my favorite spots. We stayed for two months - not nearly long enough. Heaven is in Maine at Brad's house.
