About Pam Stone

We are originally from Texas, but have made our way to New England and love it. Our other home is in Rhode Island. I renovate old homes and this one was such a challenge I had to take it on! We filled 37 dumpters with 'stuff' and re-created a New England jem.

Pam Stone purchased this house in 2012

Why Pam Stone chose Scarborough

After visiting The Blackpoint Inn in Prouts I was hooked. So peaceful, with two of the most amazing beaches anywhere. It only takes me a couple hours to get here from my home. There is a spectacular cliff walk and you can ride your bike all around. You feel as if you are worlds away from any hussle and bussle, yet unbelievable food, antiques and shopping are only minutes away. I love to eat and antique!

What makes this house unique

The property has many special featues, my favorite is the barn. You are unable to sleep there but can slide open the barn doors and dine, feeling like you stepped back into history. Sit on the front porch and enjoy your morning coffee or play horseshoes on the expansive lawn.

Fantastic Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

As year-round locals, we've driven by the Stone family home on Ferry Road many times and we could not wait to host our family gathering there this September! Pam, your home is beautifully decorated, impeccably landscaped, and perfectly situated within a quick two minute walk down to the beach. It was the perfect getaway for our family of 7 adults and 3 kiddos. We ate lobster rolls in the barn and walked the beach at sunset. In addition to the beach, the kids loved the chance to make s'mores at the fire pit and the adults enjoyed some of the local craft beer that Portland has to offer. We even learned some of the local history of Prouts Neck from a neighbor who has lived in Scarborough for a few generations. If you're looking for an inviting, home-away-from-home experience to share with your loved ones near the beach in Maine, then the Stone family home at Ferry Road can't be beat!

Perfect in so many ways!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was fortunate to spend time in August at this beautiful home and location. We hit the lottery with weather, sunshine everyday! We loved spending time at both Ferry and Scarborough Beach and the wonderful restaurants in Portland. This was our third visit, and we look forward to many more.

Thank you Pam for making this the best vacation yet!

Best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Pam's house is in the perfect location if you are looking for a quiet beach vacation. We rented bikes and both biked and walked to so many beautiful spots in Scarborough. The house was clean and well appointed and was the right size for our group of 6 adults and 2 children from St. Louis, Dallas and Maine. We could have easily accommodated 4 more. It was great to have 3 (4 including the apartment) baths - no one ever had to wait for a shower. And plenty of hot water. We also loved the ping pong table in the barn and had many tournaments. We all agreed - let's come back next year and stay longer. Pam's house is our home away from home!

Fabulous location and excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded our expectations. The apartment over the garage gave our family excellent flexibility. We were looking forward to dinner in the barn with a chandelier, but the weather was so good we were always outside. We took our 2 year old Granddaughter and ahe could walk the 5 minutes to Prouts Neck beach. Access to Scarborough beach was an easy walk too. Used Black Point Inn as our go to place. Absolutely delightful experience.

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

Pam's home is an incredible place for a family vacation on the shores of Maine. A comfortable home, built for relaxation. Just steps from the ocean. Friendly neighbors, including a very conveniently located Lobstah fisherman doors away. If you are looking for the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the summer, this is it!
