Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I grew up in Maine, on a farm, not too far from Saco. After college I moved to Boston and started a business, got married and had children. During that time, my yearning for getting back to Maine inspired me to purchase this home. Over the years, many of my family members have lived here, with me and my family visiting often. Since those family members have since married, purchased their own homes, or are just off doing there things, we decided it was time to rent it so others could enjoy it as much as we have! During off-peak times, we still love to visit, often with friends, and enjoy the entertaining spirit of the house.

Why the Owner Chose Saco:
This was the first property we saw in our search for a great home in Maine! We fell in love with it right away. There is so much history and character with such a grand home -- all of the beautiful detail!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a great home for a large group. The modern, fully equipped kitchen is great for cooking and its breakfast bar even allows for socializing. The parlor is 23 feet long, so its great for big dinners and gatherings. The six nice bedrooms make it easy for people to find just the right spot. And the grandest of all rooms is the 3rd floor "game room" with it floor-to-ceiling beadboard, a pool table, a TV, a bar, and even a card table tucked into the turret! The convenience of the house to restaurants, stores, movie theater, bowling, water parks, amusement park and beaches is wonderful!
