Property description

Beautiful Ocean Views and 2 minute walk to beach!

PLEASE NOTE: If your desired dates are reserved, please inquire about our beautiful new vacation home in Willard Beach (Homeaway ID #4019326)! Available beginning on Sept 8!

Bright, Sunny and spotlessly clean, this quintessential Maine beach cottage features beautiful ocean views and a perfect location. Located in the beautiful and historic Town Landing neighborhood of Falmouth-Foreside, rated 'Maine's most prestigious neighborhood', it's just 10 mins to downtown Portland and 15 mins to the charming town of Freeport with the famous Freeport outlets and the huge LL Bean Campus of stores. The location feels away from it all, yet it's only 1-2 miles to restaurants, coffee shops & shopping! Wake up to see the sailboats in the harbor. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktails on the expansive deck with beautiful views of the sailboats in the harbor and huge adirondack chairs.

Walk to the private beach or the Town Landing Market, both just steps away. The historic Town Landing Market features the best (and most affordable) lobster rolls around, plus shrimp rolls and crab rolls around plus delicious made-to order sandwiches and pizza.

The cottage sleeps 6 comfortably in great beds with high quality mattresses. The Master bedroom features ocean views, a brand new very high-end Beautyrest Black King-sized mattress from the Beautyrest Black Recharge line, purchased for the 2014 summer rental season, a new 40" Samsung Flatscreen and new bedroom furniture (newly purchased for the 2015 rental season and not yet photographed), a room AC and hand-painted diamond-patterned floors.

The 2nd bedroom features a verdigris iron queen bed with a thick memory foam topper, a room AC and whimsically hand-painted polka-dot bordered floors. The 3rd bedroom its very small and cozy with twin beds, a room AC, hand painted floors, a set of shelves for clothing (no closet) and a Tommy Hilfiger nautical theme.

Cheerful and sunny living room with ocean views is open to dining room and home-office area (not shown) with a brand new sofa and new comfy chair (not photographed), 42' Samsung Flatscreen and AC.

Dining room seats six comfortably and is open to the living room. Living room with wood stove features comfortable sofa, loveseat, comfy reading chair and plenty of additional seating including lots of special children's furniture throughout, plus a home-office area. Home has wireless high speed internet throughout, 200+ channels, a new 42' Samsung HDTV and land line with unlimited domestic long-distance and unlimited calls to Canada.

Spacious kitchen with sunroom is extremely well-equipped with everything you need for large family meals and entertaining, plus two sets of service-for-8 dishes, a heavy-guage Ralph Lauren stainless silverware set for 12, and glassware in every category.

Deck is outfitted with 4 of the highest-quality oversized adirondack chairs sold in the US, plus side tables and and two additional comfy patio chairs for casual ocean-view dining.

For our winter and longer-term guests, we encourage you to use our cozy wood stove fireplace insert. Also, our new efficient boiler/heat system was added in 2009, along with a new roof. New energy efficient windows throughout were added in 2010 and 2014 to the living room, kitchen and dining room plus the two smaller bedrooms. The exterior was fully remodeled and repainted in 2010.

Personal owner-provided Concierge Services available upon request.

There's something for Everyone!: A truly unique vacation setting, with something to satisfy all interests! Whether it's outdoor recreation or fine dining and shopping, this area offers it all, and it's all just minutes from your doorstep.

You're just 10 minutes to Portland's historic Old Port Exchange, filled with interesting boutiques, coffee shops and award-winning dining. Even less distance to the Arts District.

Within 15 minutes, you are in Freeport, home to the famous outlets and the fabulous LL Bean 'campus'. LL Bean offers daily adventure programs worth exploring, as they are very reasonably priced and professionally guided.

Within a 20-30 minute radius, you can explore lakes, the ocean, and many of the famous area beaches. You can go hiking one day, antiquing the next, whale-watching the third, 'boutiquing' and gallery-hopping the fourth, visit historic areas the next day, dress up for a fine-dining experience on one night and picnic on the beach the next afternoon.

Steps away from classic vacation fun and minutes to many of Maine's best spots! Stay close to home and dine, picnic, swim, canoe, kayak, sail, hike, golf or cycle or venture minutes away to discover more of Maine's treasures. Just 10 minutes to DT Portland, famous for its restaurants, boutiques, museums and galleries, and named by Frommer's a 'Top 12 World Travel Destination' in 2007 and ranked 'Top Foodie City in the US' by Bon Appetit in 2009. Wander the cobblestone streets in Portland's famous Old Port--its historic waterfront warehouse district, and shop the fabulous boutiques and galleries for unique treasures. Enjoy whale watching, deep-sea fishing, lobstering excursions, Duck boat tours and sunset dinner cruises or discover the nearby islands and famous lighthouses. Drive 15 minutes north to the famous Freeport outlets and LL Bean or continue further north to discover the charming villages along Maine's unspoiled coastline.
