Portland house description
Now accepting reservations for 2015. Available mid/late May.
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 place to live', it's just 10 mins to downtown Portland and 15 mins to 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.
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, shrimp rolls and crab rolls around plus delicious made-to order sandwiches and pizza.
The cottage sleeps 6 comfortably in great beds with 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 27' TV with white cabinet (moving from Living Room), 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. Brand New 42' Samsung Flatscreen (not shown) with new TV cabinet (white cabinet with 27' TV will move to the Master Bedroom!) Living Room has AC.
Dining room seats six comfortably and is open to the living room. Living room with wood stove features comfortable sofa, loveseat 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 brand new 42' Samsung HDTV and land line with unlimited domestic long-distance.
Kitchen is extremely well-equipped with everything you need for large family meals and entertaining, plus two sets of service-for-8 dishes, two sets of utensils, including heavy-guage Ralph Lauren stainless set for 12, and glassware in every category. Kitchen also features a window AC and an afternoon sunroom.
Deck is outfitted with 4 of the highest-quality oversized adirondack chairs sold in the US, plus side tables and a bistro set 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 added in 2010 and 2014 to the living room, kitchen and dining room plus the two smaller bedrooms. Finally, the exterior was fully remodeled and repainted in 2010.
