About Marc Gagne

Owners Marc & Martha, both retired public school teachers, with a combined teaching career of 70 years hold Bachelor & Masters Degrees from the University of Southern Maine. He has lived in Old Orchard Beach all his life and she has resided there for the past 20 years.

The purchase, remodel and decorating of the SEAGLASS COTTAGE (located adjacent to our home) has been a labor of love.The complete overhaul of the property began in 2004, with our first rental tenants arriving summer 2005. An additional construction project in 2008 added the second bathroom and master bedroom. We have had successful and rewarding rental seasons (as can be noted by the reviews) ever since.

Marc's remodeling & construction skills combined with Martha's artistic eye and creativity have helped to create a beautiful, comfortable, welcoming, coastal retreat perfect for making summer memories by the sea. Color choices, bedding, furnishings & decor all add to the coastal feel and provide tenants a "home away from home" easy to acclimate to, and hard to leave. Many tenants have made returned visits summer after summer.

Marc Gagne purchased this cottage in 2004

Awesome Summer Break

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Marc and Martha! We could not have asked for a better welcome. Both of you were exceedingly helpful before we showed up and during our stay. The house had everything we needed to hit the beach as soon as we landed in OOB. It was a short walk to the beach, in great condition and very comfortable. It was a summer we will always remember. My girls surfed for the first time (thanks, Marc for the reference to the surf shop), my daughter caught 3 huge stripers (biggest fish she has ever caught), we found great places to shop, drove to Portland for days of fun, my girls improved their boogie boarding skills, dug huge holes in the sand, found cool stuff on the beach, lobster rolls, Alex's Pizza, Huot's haddock sandwiches, pier fries, fried dough and pizza... Oh my... I fully miss it right now.

If you are considering rent a place in OOB, you could not get a better place or work with better people. But, PLEASE do not rent it when we want to go! :-)

Well appointed cottage. Bit of a walk to the beach - but only about 5 minutes. Nice trolley to transport chairs etc. Only negative is the trains that go though town early morning and late PM.

Seaglass Cottage Old Orchard Beach Maine

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful, comfortable and perfectly located. A short walk to a very nice part of the beach that is not too crowded (even on a holiday week). Short walk to the pier and all the restaurants and shopping. Great place, I would absolutely want to rent again!

Second Amazing Stay

This was our second visit to Seaglass Cottage and we could not have been happier. Every detail is thought of and Marc and Martha are so kind and responsive. I hope we're able to return every year.
