|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
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.
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
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.
We were so warmly welcomed and delighted with the careful and exquisite attention to the details that make a rental very special. We appreciated all the Kathi did for us and the beauty of her home and surrounding property. We are coming back for certain.
Our hostess, Kathi, was an absolute dream! She thought of every imaginable need of a traveler staying in the guest cottage. It was supremely clean/well maintained, comfortable, roomy, organized, decorated with an artistic eye, and had a feeling of staying with family or your best friend (maybe better!). We arrived at the location and were warmly greeted by Kathi and her impressive flower garden (of which we had a beautiful arrangement on the kitchen bar of the apartment). She immediately showed us to our quest quarters, gave us a tour, explained any pertinent information and asked, as well as answered, questions we had. There was a prepared three ring binder with all kinds of information of local sites, things to not miss, menus for various restaurants, tours, etc. She also had map books for Maine. It was tremendously helpful to us and planning our days. If you like to cook, there is everything at your fingertips if you wish to prepare meals during your stay - a very well stocked (dishes, glassware, silverware, pots, pans, spices, and more!) kitchen. There are grocery sacks, a picnic basket, an insulated bag (we used this quite a bit!) and so much more. There were chairs for the beach, bikes we could ride, a lovely screened gazebo to enjoy, a bbq grill if we desired. We also received notes from Kathi on places she'd think of after chatting with us that we might enjoy and we took her recommendation on a number of things. We also found this to be a great location as a jumping off point to seeing a good portion of Southern Maine (loved our morning walks on the nearby beach too!). If you are a person who has any physical challenges (difficulty with stairs) this might not be the ideal location for you as you do climb stairs upon entry and exit. We loved our stay, our hosts, their sweet dog, the quiet surrounds, and the experience as a whole. We would certainly recommend staying here to anyone who is coming to the Biddeford area.
This property was everything and more than was advertised. Kathy was helpful, accommodating and friendly. My 6 year old daughter fell in love with their dog, and she went out of her way to allow my daughter to pet and play with him. The fresh fruits and vegetables were a huge added bonus. We loved eating a few freshly picked blueberries everyday. The location was ideal for our laid back mother/daughter trip. The area is beautiful. I highly recommend this property. We had a fabulous time.
My husband and I stayed for three nights in July, and were happy with the accommodations. The apartment is well-stocked and spacious enough for 2. Kathi is helpful and friendly without interfering. Oh, and the air conditioning was much appreciated!
I have nothing but great things to say about our stay ! Location, cleanness , beautiful . Owner was so kind and thoughtful. If you ever vacation in Maine , you're missing out if you don't book this place . That's all folks !!
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.
