Biddeford Pool house description

This authentic Maine cottage has created wonderful beach memories for several generations. Ideally located on a small spit of coast that locals call "South Point," the house is on the edge of a picture postcard sandy beach but also five-minute walk from a spectacular rocky section of coastline. Separated from the beach by dunes, the back of the house is two minutes from a sandy beach that stretches for three miles. The ability to come and go from house to beach in the New England tradition is a wonderful, old-time convenience. Explore the tidal pools with your kids or your dog or steal a few minutes of solitude with the sound of the surf or the light of the moon on the waves.

The house itself combines the charm of bygone summers with the conveniences of an easy, casual vacation. A large, sunny living room provides a great place for board games and puzzles. Or, read a book or tell a ghost story in front of the wood-burning fireplace. A bright eat-in kitchen contains the usual amenities, including a microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen opens onto a spacious deck with two eating areas and two charcoal grills.

Upstairs there are four sunny bedrooms (king, double, double, and single) with two full bathrooms. Lovely glimpses of the dunes and ocean from upstairs. In addition, there is a separate guest apartment which is attached to the main house. The apartment has its own living room, eat-in kitchen, and another bedroom with its own full bathroom. The apartment has separate front and rear entrances and so can be used as a separate guest unit. Or, it can be used along with the house with the second living room as a family room and the upstairs as the master suite.

The house is surrounded by nearly a quarter acre of level lawn for children and pets to play. In addition to a detached two-car garage, there is also space to park additional vehicles and boat trailers.

The South Point neighborhood of Biddeford Pool is a small family-oriented, enclave-within-an-enclave. An ice cream truck wanders lazily through the streets each afternoon, its music summoning children from surrounding homes. The entrance to a scenic Audubon nature preserve is a short stroll from the cottage. The walking trail in the preserve features classic Maine scenery - bold rocks, graceful pines, and a dramatic view of the nearby Wood Island Lighthouse.

A 15-minute walk takes you into the picturesque village of Biddeford Pool, complete with general store, lobster pound, and post office. Rent a kayak, take a sail, or simply enjoy the view of the lobster boats and sailboats moored in the "Pool." If you wish to get to know Southern Maine better, the shops and restaurants of Kennebunkport are a 30-minute drive to the South. Slightly farther afield are Ogunquit and the Yorks as well. An easy drive to the north brings you to the city of Portland and a public ferry to the many small island communities of Casco Bay.
