Overview

Southern Coast of Maine Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Our new vacation rental, the East Wing has been created with flexibility, restfulness and comfort in mind. It is a bright and sunny one-bedroom apartment, decorated with LLBean furnishings, local art and photography. Cozy quilts invite you to a restful night's sleep or afternoon naps. Enjoy our mature perennial gardens or a walk in the woods. Leave your bedroom window open during the night and you might hear the resident owl hoo-hooing or the neighborhood coyotes yipping. Comfortable air conditioning keeps you cool during hot summer days.

In the summer, see if our strawberries or blueberries are ready for your breakfast and visit the nearby farm stand for the freshest produce ever. Head to one of Biddeford Pool's exclusive beaches for some boogie boarding and then pick up some locally caught lobsters for your evening meal. Colder months are great for nearby Nordic skiing.

It really is the perfect home base for a beach vacation, a food and wine delight, a walking exploration or a writer's retreat.

We would love to introduce you the beauty and richness of Southern Maine. The East Wing is literally minutes from some of the nicest beaches in Maine, wonderful kayaking and quiet walking trails, 20 minutes from Portland or Kennebunkport and about 45 minutes from the home of LLBean in Freeport, outlet shopping in Kittery or mountain hikes. This is just the beginning of our favorites list! We think that Maine is an amazing place to live and love sharing it as only native Mainers can.

We want to make sure that you have all the privacy that you deserve on vacation, so we are always available when you arrive and depart and as needed for other helpful things like directions, restaurant recommendations, advice on day trips, etc. Otherwise, we let you have as much privacy as you wish. We invite you to sample our quiet hospitality.

About Kathryn Favre

I am a native Mainer, and love sharing our state with friends, old and new. An avid gardener, hiker, skiier and traveller, I proudly work for Maine's own L.L.Bean and hope to never live anywhere else. I collect seaglass and stones wherever I go and love sharing a glass of wine or pint of beer with guests from all over the world.

Kathryn Favre purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Kathryn Favre chose Southern Coast of Maine

Biddeford has beautiful unspoiled beaches, where access is limited to residents and guests. Our location is close to all city amenities and toursit attractions, but off the beaten path enough to enjoy local wildlife for neighbors. We have an unusually private and quiet wooded setting that is perfect for relaxing.

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I wanted to get away for the 4th of July to a place that wouldn't be overly crowed, and Kathi's place turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. It was clean, comfortable and had everything that we needed. When we first arrived Kathi showed us the best ways to access the beaches and gave some pointers on where to eat. All of her advice came in handy. There was enough to keep you busy in town, and it is also a quick drive north to Portland and south to Kennebunk. I would highly recommend this rental- we had a great, relaxing weekend in Biddeford.

The place we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect in many ways. It is ideally located, close to one of the best beaches in Maine -and the world I would say-. It is ideally tucked away from the main road, so you have the feeling of being in the middle of the forest, yet you are 300 yards from the main road. You have privacy and silence. Ideal for a couple, the apartment has everything you could think of. A great comfortable bed, large windows so you can enjoy the summer sun, mosquito nets so you can breathe fresh air without worrying about insects, a perfectly equipped kitchen with all sorts of material, a nice decoration. You name it. Kathi is also an experienced host and you can tell. We are not the kind who travels the world to make friends and found Kathi a gentle person who knew exactly what we needed. All in all, one of the best places we've stayed in, and there have been a few in very different and distant countries. We are already planning to come back.

Un superbe séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été accueillis de façon chaleureuse et attentive. Kathy est disponible pour nous présenter les points d'intérêts de la région et elle est très serviable.

La demeure était propre et très confortable. Elle est située en retrait de la route, ce qui offre une belle intimité.

Merci encore pour ce merveilleux séjour! :)

Very clean, everything we needed!

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely stay here, the place is very clean, with everything you need in the kitchen, plenty of towels, sheets, personal care products, spices etc. It is away from the road and quiet for the most part. During our stay, dogs were visiting and not used to having people coming and going so we heard them bark as we were getting ready to leave with our bikes but aside from that, we did not hear them at all. Kathi, the owner, was very kind and let us put our bikes in the garage and even offered local blueberry wine and beer. That was very generous of her and so kind, we appreciated her hospitality. The apartment is located on top of the garage and you have access to a private bbq and picnic table, which is located beside the garage. Its a very peaceful and quiet place.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I just returned from a wonderful week here. The East Wing is a quiet, relaxing, lovely, space and served as a great home base for visits to neighboring towns and beaches. The hosts generously supply beach towels, chairs, many spices and condiments, storage containers and even an extra back pack or cooler for your convenience. The information binder, brochures and maps made it so easy to navigate the area and Kathi and Bob were only a phone call away if needed. We highly recommend The East Wing.
