Unwind in Style in Your Scarborough Vacation Home

When you want to get away from it all and enjoy a spectacular vacation on the coast, you do not have to look beyond beautiful Scarborough for an amazing vacation experience. Some will choose to stay in a cramped hotel room on their Maine coast getaway, but a better idea is to treat yourself to a spacious vacation rental home. A rental home in Scarborough may have everything from private bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms to a full kitchen, a fireplace, a deck overlooking the beach and other amenities that you will love.

Outdoor Recreation

There is much to see and do across the southern coast of Maine, which adds to your great times on vacation. Some people will delight in exploring the coastline with lobster tours, whale watching tours, schooner tours and other types of sightseeing tours. There are also other activities that you can enjoy on the coast, such as kayaking, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking and more. If you visit the area during the warmer months of the year, you can spend ample time outdoors enjoying these and other activities.

Shopping

If you love to shop, you will love exploring the mom-and-pop shops in places like Scarborough and York Beach. If you are looking for more shopping excitement, you will be delighted to learn that there are some amazing large shopping destinations located a short drive away from your vacation home. These venues include hundreds of stores in the Maine Mall in South Portland, the Old Port retail center in Portland and the Kittery Outlet Mall in Ogunquit. These shopping destinations are ideal for shopping for items for yourself or for the folks back home.

Golfing

if your vacation plans include visiting the southern coast of Maine during the warmer months of the year, you will want to pack your golfing gear and make plans to spend time on area courses.

The proximity to downtown Ogunquit was awesome. Walking one mile was not a big deal to go into town in the evening. The last .25 mile of the walk back no longer has street lights so a flashlight is recommended. It was just far enough away that if we wanted quiet and privacy we could have it. The pool was beautiful for a swim under the moon. We chose to drive to York beach because we didn't want to walk that distance with all of our beach bum gear. It was an easy drive and not much traffic (rte 1 into Ogunquit is kind of insane but the cottage is just far enough away that you don't have to deal with it). I would highly recommend! I stay in Ogunquit for a week every year. The place I use to stay no longer exists. I think I found my new place.

The covered front porch was was great for relaxing, grilling, eating/drinking, and the backyard was great for campfires. This cottage is part of a small "village" of cottages on a development with a shared inground pool and older but still usable playset. There was plenty of common space, lawns, and a little brook for playing and running around with the kids. Even a couple blueberry bushes great for picking! The town of Ogunquit, Marginal Walkway, etc. is actually walkable for adults (there's only a very short stretch where you're walking/running/biking along the shoulder of Rt 1 before the sidewalk begins at the Ogunquit Playhouse). Perhaps older kids could walk it, too, but for small kids/strollers, a very short drive was needed to get to town. By car, several beaches, shops, lighthouses, hiking, restaurants, etc. are very quick and easy to get to. We really appreciated the hospitality and warm welcome; nice bottle of red wine was a great touch! And Jim stopped by a couple times to make sure we had everything we needed. Thanks for a wonderful first stay in Maine!

Very clean, very well organized and the Kane's were a delight to deal with. We had ample room for a 7 year-old, a 14 year-old, some mid-40's and some mid-70's. Whether drinks on the front porch, breakfast in the screen-in patio or lounging in the family room, everyone had a chance to unwind, relax and reconnect. Photos really do it justice, fantastic lay-out with bedrooms upstairs, porch out back, balconies out front, ample parking, clean, super bright and just so easy and smooth. In inclement weather, you couldn't ask for better! Close to the beach and fun restaurants, and the trolley stop just a few yards away, nothing was lacking - except a tea kettle, mind you... But since inquiring if there was one (and told no), the Kane's reached out and advised me that it will be their next purchase for future guests (and which will include me again next year) - didn't I say they were a delight. Simply a wonderful time! Ideal location, good price for quality obtained and great people to deal with... Highly recommend - 5 out of 5! Thank you, The Marcotte Family. Montreal, Canada.
