The coast of main house
The big group I travelled with to the Coast of Main house felt really comfortable in the large house. Everyone had a very large bedroom with plenty of sheets and blankets and towels for showering. There were lots of windows and natural sunlight. The bedding was new and clean as were all the bedrooms. The kitchen was also very big in size with plenty of space for seating in the dining room.
There was a pool in the backyard that we unfortunely couldn’t use because it was winter. Looking forward to swimming in the pool next time we are here in the summer.
Thanksgiving - New England Style!!
My family and I are overjoyed with our stay at the beautiful Saco Mansion. We live in California and we have never been to New England. Last year we had this fantasy that we wished to celebrate a REAL Thanksgiving in the very region that this wonderful holiday was started, and we made our dream come true! We flew into Portland and in a matter of no time we were getting settled in the luxurious setting of the mansion which is the quintessential New England setting. Every room was picture postcard perfect, and it almost felt like we were transported back to an earlier and better time in America. We cooked our own Thanksgiving dinner in the beautiful kitchen, and had a winders meal in the even more beautiful dining room. Mr. Scott, the Proprietor, is super helpful, and trult understands the ambiance and setting most people, like us, were after. He also is smart enough, unlike other past experiences in other places, to back off and let a family have uninterrupted privacy. Overall, a home run of a vacation for our family.
Unique and centrally located mansion in Maine
I have had the pleasure of staying once with some friends and once with my family at the coast of Maine house. Both experiences met all of our needs and provided special memories for the groups with whom I traveled. The home is comfortable and has tons of spaces to explore and enjoy. It is also well appointed with beach towels, comfortable bed linens, stocked kitchen, art, books, swimming pool and even yoga mats and supplies. The location is extremely convenient - downtown has coffee, restaurants (we like “run of the mill” only a few minutes from the house) and breweries, and Saco itself is close to multiple beaches, scenic lookouts/lighthouses and biking/hiking paths. I would recommend to anyone who has a large party or just loves a unique experience and wants to break out of the typical rental property. We certainly hope to return!
SPECTACULAR Home and Area
My immediate family of 4 from California took a trip to the beautiful coast of Maine this past August 2018, and we met up with 14 other family members living in Massachusetts as we were celebrating my fathers 90th birthday and wanted to get everyone together in one location. We chose the Coast of Maine house not only because of its great location near lots of beaches and lighthouses, but we loved the fact that it was a historic ship captains mainsion!! It’s beautiful, with tall ceilings, large bedrooms, expensive and grand cherry furniture, new bedding, ceiling fans and air conditioning, which made the house always comfortable. My wife loved the new kitchen appliances as she is a certified chef, and the dining room seating over 20 accomadated us all nicely. The kids loved the pool. Overall it was a perfect place for our large familt to stay, and we will definitely head back this summer.
