Why Catherine Taggart chose Southern Coast of Maine

We fell in love with Old Orchard Beach, and the location of this cottage on the quieter side of town. Through the small motels on the beach you can just see the ocean which is literally 300 steps away. We can easily walk to the main street and The Pier for food, shopping & nightlife. If we want a quieter town atmosphere we can walk to Ocean Park for concerts and shuffleboard. We have also found several restaurants in Saco, Biddeford & Portland that we enjoy with the friends we've made on our street. Many people on Cedar Ave. are full time residents of OOB or weekenders that enjoy it all year. We love this area year round, and are happy to share it with you during the summer season.

This picture is us eating Lisa's Pizza for the first time :-)

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage was added on to in 2009 with the bunk room and new bathroom. We added in wood floors in the main bedroom and living room, as well as the heating/cooling units, wall mounted TVs, and a security system. In the Spring of 2017, we added an enclosed outdoor shower to make your beach vacation absolutely perfect. This 1920's cottage feels brand new.

A Vacation Full of Wonderful Memories!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this lovely beach cottage! It was the perfect way to spend our vacation in Maine. It's located just a block from the beach, a short walk to Old Orchard Beach boardwalk and a great location to hop in the car and travel to other parts of Maine.

The cottage itself is PERFECT! It has everything you'll need. The owner has thought of everything! They are very responsive to any questions or issues you may have before, during and after your stay.

We WILL be back next year...LOVE, love, love it!!!!!!

Perfect Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cottage with our 3 children. It had everything we needed and more! The cottage was very clean. We were literally 300 steps to the beach - my kids actually counted. I would definitely recommend staying here and Catherine was great to deal with. Every question I had was answered within the hour and she even left a binder of restaurant menus for places to eat.

Clean, clean, clean!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared our first family vacation with our infant daughter at this beach house. Even my parents stayed in the extra room. The house is SO clean and decorated PERFECTLY--Very updated and beautiful beachy decor. The house had everything you could possibly need for cooking which made it great when we had breakfast at home and grilled out at night. The house is so close to the beach and we walked to and from without any problems. There is always a lot of free street parking available for guests that you may want to visit. We will definitely stay here again :)

The house is clean, cozy, adorable, quaint, and perfect for a family to enjoy. The home owner was organized by having a folder ready for us to review for places to eat, shop, and activities to enjoy. The house was also filled with many amenities to use for cooking, showering, and games were also provided. My family had the best experience while staying in this house. We were in walking distance to the beach and the pier. We can't wait to rent it again.

Happy guests,

Lisa Franceschet and family

The cottage was very clean and nicely decorated to fit the area .

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the was close enough to the beach but yet on a quiet street with plenty of privacy from the crowds. The cottage has plenty of supplies..dishes,pans towels etc that you only need to bring your groceries and clothes.There was plenty of room there,we had 5 adults and a child and we weren't crowded at all. There is parking for 2 cars which worked great for us since we had a trailer with bikes and beach chairs.Cathrine was very prompt with any answers to my questions and pleasant to deal with.I definitely would stay there at 300 Steps again. Great place to stay. I give it 5 stars .

Old Orchard Beach, Maine is a classic family beach resort located on the coast of Southern Maine. During the days of your vacation, you can walk only 300 steps and find your spot in the sun anywhere along the 7 mile stretch of sandy beach. Or, if you'd rather, spend time wandering through the main street shops collecting souvenirs of your stay while eating world famous Pier Fries. The beachfront amusement park Palace Playland is a must for children of all ages, as is Pirate's Cove mini-golf. Of course, if you're looking for grown-up golf, you can be on the first tee at Dunegrass Golf Club in less than 2.5 miles.

Ocean Park is a quiet gem just under a mile away. In Ocean Park, you can find shuffleboard and the most amazing homemade cinnamon rolls!

If it happens to rain, no worries, in just a short drive you'll find bowling, arcades & the cinema. While you're driving home stop by Pine Point and pick up fresh lobsters from the marina for dinner. If your rather go out to eat, you'll find your choice of restaurants that offer casual to fine dining. After dinner, stay out and enjoy the night-life. Go out dancing to the local bands that are featured at The Pier & The Brunswick. Finally, your vacation would not be complete without Thursday night fireworks. Bring your camera for the scenery, the sunsets and the memories.
