We live nearby at Goose Rocks and this is our guest cottage for new friends and old. Come for a week and you'll want to return every year, like we did! Best to ring us 2073709309 if interested in owner to renter direct rates.

Paul Hogan purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Paul Hogan chose Southern Coast of Maine

It's a authentic Maine summer cottage that is well maintained and close to the beach. With two comfortable bedrooms, the small cottage has a surprising amount of common space and relaxing areas (living room, decks off the front of house (afternoon sun), side (always shady) and rear with water views --morning sun).

What makes this cottage unique

Waterfront on tidal creek provides the melody of rushing water as the tide shifts. Launch your kayak from the back yard, pass under the fishing bridge on the Little River to the ocan or launch your kayak from the beach. Just 9 houses from beach. Watch the stream and wildlife from the rear deck or people watch from the front deck.

This is an authentic Maine Cottage, lovingly updated but maintaining that cottage feel inside. We don't have pictures as we just purchased house and are sprucing things up a bit. Pictures will be available in August. This house is one of several at Goose Rocks Beach that survived the 1947 Fire

A wonderfully appointed cottage w/awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous Columbus Day weekend at this lovely cottage, esp with the pouring rain on Sunday. The cottage is quaint and had everything we needed for a girls' weekend away with our 13 yo daughters. Paul was gracious and responded to requests quickly. The cottage is conveniently located a stone's throw from a wonderful beach, perfect for long walks with a stop at the Tides Hotel for drinks and oysters on the veranda. What could be better? Cooked lobsters from Nunan's in Cape Porpoise for a dinner in was amazing. I highly recommend this rental and the Goose Rocks location. The off - season was wonderful too, with gorgeous colors and fewer crowds.

Cozy Cottage Close to Beautiful Beach

  • 5 of 5

My mister and I just returned from a romantic stay at the Enchanted Cottage at Goose Rocks Beach. Perfect location for long, private beach walks, happy hour at the lovely Tides Hotel , delicious breakfasts at the Wayfarer in Cape Porpoise (a short ride away). The cottage is cozy and has everything we needed to lounge, read, cook and eat. There is plenty of room for 3 guests especially with the new " en suite" half- bath in master bedroom. So convenient (thanks Paul)! I love the outdoor shower with warm water!

We are lucky to have found this gem of a rental- our first and best beach holiday!

Cozy, quaint and a great beach cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this cottage for a few years now. We love that they kept it as the original owner did. This cottage is a perfect distance to the beach and the back deck in definately its best asset. You can hear the creek flow over the rocks at low tide and it is so tranquil. We are very greatful having stayed at the Enchanted Cottage! We always have a wonderful time! It has everyting you need in a beach cottage.

wonderful wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I returned to Goose Rocks Beach for the first time in 18 years with a friend. We found The Enchanted Cottage to be the perfect spot for a three day end of summer beach getaway. The house was clean and incredibly well equiped. The beds comfy, there was good light for reading ( not always found in a rental) and the decks outside were perfect for all times of day. It is a short walk to the beach which is just as I remembered. Not crowded and wonderful for walking. This would be a great spot for not only summer time, but also for those spring and fall weekends when you want a beach walk and a cozy bed. We have already signed up for next September. An added bonus is that the host is gracious and accommodating. Five stars!!

Hidden gem near Goose Rocks beach

  • 5 of 5

The Enchanted Cottage is a hidden gem near Goose Rocks beach. It is a rustic cottage with old time charm. The cottage is in a wonderful location and just a short walk to the beach. The neighbors are very friendly.

The cottage has everything you will need for your home away from home. The bedding, towels and kitchen supplies were perfect. Also, the washer and dryer work great. It was nice to keep up with laundry while there. The kitchen is small and cozy but it has everything you will need to prepare your meals. We especially enjoyed our dinners in the dining room overlooking the area in the back of the property. It was very peaceful. You can also sit in the front area if you like to people watch. There are people passing by on their way to the beach throughout the day. All were very friendly.

We had a wonderful time.

The enchanted cottage was truly enchanting!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from four nights at Goose Rocks beach. We were so pleased with this rental house. It was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The beds and linens were very comfortable and the house was very well furnished and supplied. The owner was very welcoming and accommodating, and provided excellent service both before and during our rental. The house has beautiful views of the tidal river, and was very peaceful as well as relaxing. The location was very convenient and an easy walk to the beach. In our twenty five years of vacationing at Goose Rocks this was one of the nicest homes that we have rented!

We highly recommend this house, and cannot wait to return ourselves.

small gentle waves best for families. Surfers will want to try Kennebunk Beach just south or Biddeford Pool, next town to the north.
