About Marc Johnson
We have been summering in Biddeford Pool for 15 years and recently purchased this adorable cottage. It is recently refurnished and has a new bathroom on the second floor.
Marc Johnson purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Marc Johnson chose Biddeford Pool
The cottage is in a quiet, non-commercial part of town. It is situated one side yard back from the ocean and has lovely open views across the neighbor's gardens. Just 200 yards from a two mile long sandy beach - one of southern Maine's most beautiful beaches. Short walk to Audubon trails. Short bike ride to village of Biddeford Pool with a General Store serving lobster rolls, take-out dinners, groceries and ice cream.
What makes this Cottage unique
Perfect for a young family that is looking for a relaxing get away. Thought to be the former residence of the first Keeper of the historic US Coast Guard Station next door.

Sports & Adventure Activities
We just returned from our first stay in this cozy cottage. It is comfortable in size and furnishings with rooms prettier in person than in pictures. There really isn't a sound to be heard from the cottage-Absolutely no traffic sound- just the birds and even they were quiet.
We recommend taking the less than 5 minute walk from the cottage to the nature trail that runs alongside the private golf course. It leads you to a view of Wood Island Lighthouse and has several memory benches for resting if you like. We are also fairly certain that we saw some whale tails while at the beach when able to climb further out on the rocks at low tide.
Additionally, we did not initially realize that the Biddeford Pool Beach area leads directly into Fortunes Rocks Beach and enables you to visit without having to obtain a parking permit.
We also appreciated the cable television. Maybe not what most consider important while on holiday, but for us it is. The cottage provides several movie channels which enabled us to watch a couple of movies that we haven't had time to see. Biddeford Pool is small with several neighboring/nearby towns full of shops and restaurants.
We recommend this cottage to beach lovers who love privacy, peace and quiet and would love to visit again.
We had a perfect getaway!
The cottage was charming and we had more than enough room for a family of three. The location was fantastic and was perfect for beach days and nature walks as well as exploring Portland and Kennebunkport.
The host was very responsive and helpful in providing information for the area.
We didn't think to pack hand towels or wash clothes and the cottage was not stocked with toilet paper, paper towels or coffee filters. This could have also been because we booked very last minute. We will absolutely be back!
Stayed with some fellow medical students during graduation week since we had to attend mandatory activities. There were some issues with the wifi initially, which was pretty inconvenient, however the owner was responsive despite him being in CT and eventually it was resolved. The best part was the sun room--awesome spot for hanging out, or coffee in the AM. Would definitely stay here again if I was back in the area.
Beautiful Location - Perfect Place to Relax
We really enjoyed staying here. The most wonderful feature of the cottage is the front porch which has a view of the ocean across a grassy yard with beautiful flowers and is an outstanding place for morning coffee or afternoon cocktails. It has great big windows which open to let in the breeze. It was a very peaceful with an excellent master bedroom on the first floor, an extremely efficient, if compact, downstairs bathroom and a generous and very comfortable living/dining room. The kitchen is tight for more than one person and could benefit from improved lighting. Probably the only significant drawback is the staircase, which is challenging for even moderately tall people. It was clear that the owners really care about the cottage, have kept it up nicely and have furnished it with good quality comfortable furniture and a lot of care. The area is beautiful and quaint. Since we were there in October, a lot of local places were closed, so we branched out to Kennebunkport and downtown Biddeford to find shopping and restaurants for the most part. The acid test is: would I go back? The answer is:without a doubt!
Nice location. Well furnish. Beautiful surrounding. Perfect for six people. Very good value.
A wonderful small cottage with an ocean view
The place was almost perfect. The kitchen is pretty outdated and dark. The porch (outside could stand to be a little larger. 4 people with a snack tray would find it hard to get around.
The glass three season porch was wonderful and room to 10 or 12 easily (big plus!)
Updated windows were great! Beds comfortable. The cottage was not as clean as I would like when checked in. Cleaning gear left out, piles of dirt not picked up, wet rugs in the washer...but that is a cleaning service issue. Owner VERY responsive. Recommend the lockbox be placed in a location with better lighting. Numbers very hard to read on the lockbox.
Would definitely go back and recommend this to my friends.
Thank you for the feedback. Already addressing some of the suggestions fir the cleaning service.
Biddeford Pool is located 25 miles south of Portland and 10 miles north of Kennebunkport.
