About Sarah

Maine is my perfect getaway and escape to the beach any month of the year. I love the warm summer sun with cool Maine ocean air, and great breezes. Enjoy a great fall getaway.

Sarah purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Sarah chose Biddeford Pool

The beautiful lawn and water views are stunning. This is a fantastic, family oriented small fishing village. It is Maine's best kept secret and Maine's best two mile, sandy beach. I love this property May, June, September October as well as high season July August!

What makes this cottage unique

Wildlife, beautiful sunsets, ocean breezes, wide open unobstructed views, beach and Pool access.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is bright and airy, with wonderful ocean breezes. It is well-stocked, with very comfortable bedding, and plenty of places to sit and read. The view over the back pool is so pretty, with the lobster boats heading out in the morning, and in the evenings, you get a clear view of the sunsets.

We biked, kayaked and had many long walks on the beach.

Sarah was very helpful, and we would recommend this spot to anyone seeking a peaceful beach vacation.

Hidden Gem; Wnderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived at The Pool to meet the owner who could not have been more helpful and accommodating. She gave us a list of nearby places to eat, beaches and things to do in the area. The cottage was more than equipped with linens, sheets, towels, china, glasses etc. Even the bathroom was stocked with extra amenities. We could not have been happier with the set up, e views from the deck and the proximity to the sandy beach across the street! Lobster on the back deck almost every night made all of us very happy. For sure we will return to this hidden gem in a beautiful, sunny spot.

A Comfy Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time staying at Bright Beach Cottage for a week. It was convenient to everything - the beach, Kennebunkport, Kittery and Freeport. The beds were so comfortable. The photos of the rooms were accurate and there were no surprises when we got there. The "Pool" general store / restaurant was convenient and yummy. A definite plus. Would definitely be back.

Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a gem this apartment is! It overlooks the pool on one side and the ocean on the other. The apartment itself is well appointed and clean; a real plus for any renter. The owner was very helpful and answered all questions and concerns promptly. A great place to stay if you love to walk beautiful Fortunes Rocks Beach. You're also close to Kennebunkport, Portland, and Freeport, all offering loads of shopping, dining and other fun activities. I would stay hear again in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone who loves the Biddeford Pool area.
