Why Catherine Taggart chose Old Orchard Beach

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.

Very clean, cute decor and close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation. The cottage is comfortable and very clean. It is well stocked with all the dishes and linens etc. that you could possibly need. It has a very nice gas BBQ and outdoor furniture. There is an outdoor shower also! Overall this was a fantastic place to stay and I hope I have an opportunity to do so again.

This cottage was perfect for my family of four!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this beach home! We were walking distance to everything we wanted to do. Close to the fun, but not too close. This cottage was clean and cozy and the décor was beach-appropriate and fun. We would rent here again.

Quaint, clean, comfortable, short walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here. It's in an excellent location just a short walk to both the beach and downtown OOB. The neighborhood is quiet. The cottage is lovely, cozy but comfortable and very well maintained. We loved the outdoor Cedar shower.

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.
