Slow Down With Time at Your Saco Beach House

Saco is the small town you want to visit when you want to escape from the cares of daily life without being too far from a major town. This lovely beach community is conveniently located only a short drive south of Portland, and it offers much for you to see and do while you are on vacation. Whether you choose to kick back on the beach or enjoy a more adventurous vacation, you will love staying in a Saco beach house. A Saco vacation home may provide you with amenities that range from a full kitchen and a private parking area to beach views, spacious bedrooms and more.

Shopping

A trip to the southern coast of Maine would not be complete without spending ample time out and about shopping at local shopping malls and retail venues. In Saco, you will largely find smaller mom-and-pop shops that are independently owned, and you can find larger venues just outside of the community. For example, there are 120 shops at the Kittery Outlets in Ogunquit, 158 shops at Old Port shopping center in Portland and 135 shops at the Maine Mall in South Portland. You can spend several days or more exploring all that these shopping destinations have to offer.

Golfing

If you plan to visit Saco, Kennebunkport or other towns in the region during the warm weather season, be sure to pack your golf clubs with you. There are some renowned golf courses in the local area that will challenge even the most skilled golfers. These include the Webhannet Golf Club, the Merriland Farm golf course, the Ledges, Sanford Golf Course, Old Marsh Golf Course, Cape Arundel Golf Course, Dutch Elm Golf Course ad Cape Neddick Golf Course. If you want to golf with the kids, mini-golf courses like Wonder Mountain and Wells Branch Mini-Golf are wonderful ideas, and they are located a short drive away in Wells.

Outdoor Recreation

Sightseeing and outdoor adventures are popular for those who travel into the Saco area, and there is good reason for this. There are adventure tours and excursions available that provide opportunities for lobster tours, whale watching, lighthouse tours and schooner tours. These depart from various ports throughout the region. You can also enjoy other activities on your own, such as biking, hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing along the coast or along inner waterways.

Weather

The weather in Saco can be absolutely delightful if you plan your trip during the warmer months of the year. Keep in mind that the area has a humid continental climate that has long, cold winters. In fact, average low temperatures during the winter months may be in the single digits many weeks of the year, and considerable snowfall may fall during the winter because of the nor'easters that commonly blow through the area. While winters can be cold, spring, summer and fall months can be divine. The average high temperature in the summer is in the 80s, and the temperature exceeds 90 degrees on some days. Rainfall is common during the warmer months of the year because of coastal effects.

How to Get There

Traveling into Saco is easy to do because of its close proximity to Portland, Maine. You may take a bus or fly into Portland, and you can rent a car to travel the remaining distance to Saco. Some will also drive their own vehicle to Portland. From Portland, take Interstate 95 or Highway 1 southwest approximately 30 to 45 minutes until you arrive in Saco. This is a scenic, easy drive that will help you to get in the mood for relaxation on your vacation.

Perfect home for a Portland getawat!

5 of 5
We rented this beautiful home for a gathering of friends & central hub for getting in and out of Portland. The house was amazing, comfortably slept 18 adults, and the 5 bathrooms made getting ready extremely easy considering the size of our group. The amenities within the house are gorgeous with plenty of space to sit, relax, and enjoy a meal together. The only thing that was a bummer is that it was the middle of the winter and we couldn’t utilize the huge outdoor spaces on 1st and 3rd floors. We will definitely consider revisiting this house during the summer months.

Above and beyond!

5 of 5
The cottage was cute but a little cramped for four adults. However, our rental experience was incredible in that the owners and property manager went above and beyond to take care of a couple of little glitches, even on Christmas Eve! In addition, we showed up to find a cottage decorated for Christmas with a tree with lights! Wonderful, wonderful and highly recommend. Great location close to the beach and nice and quiet during the winter. Thank you Debbie and Nicolette!
