As soon as you arrive at Seaglass Cottage, it is quite clear that the owners have made every effort to make their cottage special for us. So many small details inside the cottage to make sure we had a great vacation, which we did!!! Hope to be back next year.
I think this is the best place we've ever stayed in OOB - and we've been going there for many years.
Martha and Marc were there to welcome us when we arrived, and we felt at home as soon as we unloaded the car. They've thought of everything - we could have come with clothes and food and not needed another thing for the entire week. Linens, towels, beach towels, a great, rugged cart to haul stuff to the beach, air conditioners in the bedrooms (that actually work), fans throughout the house for every room, wifi, washer & dryer - just awesome.
I know it sounds silly, but I so appreciated being in a cottage that didn't look like an explosion at the Christmas Tree Shop (if you're regular visitors to OOB, you know exactly what I mean). Tastefully decorated, and something as trivial as having matching dishes and silverware made me feel like I was in my own home - just in a much better location.
Speaking of the location - jackpot! A 5 minute walk down to the beach, 10-15 up to the pier, 5 or so to the mini-golf. Close enough, but just far enough away. We went to the OOB House of Pizza right up the street, and it was great. No need to go all the way up to the main drag.
I would second what someone else mentioned below - the bed in the master is very, very firm. If that bothers your back, you might want to bring some sort of topper (non-latex, of course - allergies, you know) or plan on dragging in one of the twin mattresses from the other room, which is what I wound up doing.
I would definitely come back to this property for another vacation. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed!
This cottage made our family vacation to Old Orchard Beach absolutely perfect. Every detail was attended to by the gracious home owners. We couldn't have asked to rent a nicer house from nicer people.
We had a great time this summer at OOB. We really enjoyed ourselves at Marc & Martha cottage- We had everything we need , from great mattress to towels, beach towel, Kitchen utensils & more. All you need. Their cottage is beautifully decorated & "homy". The beach is 5mn away from the cottage, downtown is also close by. The neighborhood is quiet.
We loved it!!! We'll be back!
Thank you Martha & Marc.

Marc and Martha's cottage is absolutely beautiful. They have thought of every detail. The location in OOB is great. Walking distance to everything yet far enough away to be low key, private and quiet. It is about a 5 min walk to the beach just as they say. They have backpack style beach chairs (along with a beach umbrella) that are perfect to take on the walk. My daughter loved the sleeping porch and I especially liked the back porch for relaxing. The two bathrooms are perfect and it was great to have the laundry right on the first floor as well. While this is strictly a matter of preference, know that the master has an extremely firm mattress. We loved our time at Seaglass Cottage and hope to return sometime.
My family and I arrived at Seaglass Cottage and instantly felt at home. It is warm, inviting, tastefully decorated, clean and had all of the comforts and necessities. The location was within a convenient five minute walking distance to the beach, miniature golf, amusement park, playground, pier, restaurants and even the train tracks which is one of my five year old son's favorite parts of visiting Old Orchard Beach. Even being as close as it was to so many things, it was far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be quiet and peaceful when you want to relax.
I cannot say enough about this cottage and how wonderful and accomodating the owners were through the entire rental process. I certainly look forward to visiting again next year!
