Biddeford Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Welcome to our classic Maine beach cottage, in excellent condition, directly across the beach road from a beautiful, wide sandy beach. The cottage comes with a right-of-way to a private path that provides direct access to this stunning, three-mile long beach, perfect for sunning and sandcastle building.

You enter our charming home directly into a large great room with cathedral ceilings, a brick fireplace, flat screen satellite TV, and an open floor plan. The fully equipped kitchen with large breakfast bar and leather stools has been recently updated. Downstairs there are two bedrooms, one perfect for up to 3 kids with a bunk bed and an additional twin bed, and the second with a double bed and its own full bathroom (with shower/tub and washer/dryer). Upstairs is one large bedroom with vaulted ceilings and a ceiling fan, a queen bed and another full bath. Also upstairs is a small loft that opens onto a second story deck with ocean views, perfect for snuggling up with a good book while enjoying the sea breezes and the gentle lull of the ocean waves. Because there are virtually two master bedrooms with full baths and TVs, this cottage is perfect for a three-generation family vacation or two couples with kids.

In Biddeford Pool you’ll find a private, serene beach vacation with plenty of activities only a short drive away. We’re located only about 12 minutes from downtown Kennebunkport or Old Orchard Beach and less than half an hour from Portland. This is a fabulous area for antiquing and flea markets. There are great restaurants and a wonderful lobster pound/restaurant right down the road where you can eat overlooking Biddeford Pool. The upstairs deck overlooks the ocean and the downstairs screened porch overlooks the Rachel Carson wildlife preserve. Both are perfect spots for privacy and relaxation. The porch includes a large picnic table for outdoor eating, and the large flat grassy back yard is perfect for horse shoes, volleyball or bird watching over the marsh.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We couldn't have found a better spot for quick proximity to the beach

while also enjoying the Rachel Carson Pool right in back, visible

from the backyard, many of the rooms and the screened in porch. One

morning I counted 80 egrets and another, a flock of wild turkey. And

some of the sunsets were simply spectacular. Much of the yard in

back that overlooks the Pool is also private with protective

vegetation and trees screening the one house next door and there's an

outside shower for sand removal. The screened porch off the kitchen

has a picnic table for dining and plenty of other seating. There's a

long counter with bar stools between the living room and kitchen, a

little kid's table and adult dining table in the main room, which

also has a piano. The sleeping arrangements were great with separate

areas and floors for bedrooms. The bedroom off the cathedral main

room was very quiet as were the other two, including the master

upstairs with its 2nd floor deck where you can see the ocean. On

that note, the access walkway to the ocean is literally about 100

feet from the side door and the beach another 50 yards or so from

there. It is nicely quiet and perfect for personal space or enjoying

the ocean and sand with kids. A neighbor told me it's not crowded

even at the height of the season. A quarter-mile walk down the beach

and you're at the public area with its sand beach blended with Maine

craggy rocks, another interesting place to watch the waves come

in. And you can get a local permit at town hall to go clamming which

we did about a half mile down the road the other way. Note: it's hard

work but they were worth the effort. If you're looking for a

fascinating natural environment, diverse eco-systems, a comfortable,

functional home, relaxing, easy paced setting and a super pleasant

owner, I can't recommend this enough. Our 3 generations loved every

minute of it.

A little spot in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the rental, it was wonderful! You really have a little spot in paradise there! We wanted a beach location, but I'm not sure which we enjoyed more, the beach or the marsh. I took tons of pictures of birds in the marsh and I think we saw a Great Blue Heron! The sunsets were spectacular too and different every night. The cottage itself is fantastic, so much room, and so many interesting things to look at! You have it set up perfectly with everything we needed. We may be in touch next year.......thanks again! And I should add that the owner was very accessible and easy to work with.

The Perfect Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful beach vacation at this charming and cozy cottage. The cottage was just as described. The kitchen was well-equipt and our kids loved eating at the breakfast bar. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were all updated and immaculate. The beach was directly across the street and it was GORGEOUS--soft, white sand and a gentle surf--perfect for long walks. And we loved the screened porch which had spectacular sunset views across the audubon preseve--we had a great lobster dinner out there. There was so much to do in the area--great restaurants, shops, hiking, biking, kayaking, amusement parks. It was a fantastic week, and we can't wait to come back!!!

Great Biddeford Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I love this place! I've vacationed at this cottage for many years and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The location is perfect with right of way access to a beautiful stretch of private beach. The cottage is immaculate and extremely comfortable. It's just like being home. Also, the owners are friendly and easy to deal with.
