Recent Portland & Casco Bay reviews

  • Very comfortable and welcoming

    "We rented this lovely home for my daughter's graduation. There were 8 of us total and everyone was quite comfortable even in the kitchen. The homeowner was extremely helpful and information not only regarding her home, but the surrounding area. This charming home was bright, cheerful and private. Each morning, the natural sun light filled this space. The only thing it was lacking for me was to be on the water, but it's location was private and scenic. The surrounding areas in Cape Elizabeth were breath taking and a pleasure to explore. I would recommend this home"

  • Great location and very comfortable for 3 couples

    "Six of us spent a week in this lovely property and enjoyed it very much. The beds were very comfortable and the common space was lovely and roomy. The house layout gave each couple a nice amount of privacy. The house was well maintained and the owner promptly attended to 1 small need need while we were there. Higgins Beach is about 1/2 block away and it was a pleasant place to walk, people watch, and enjoy the ocean. The location made for easy day trips to Portland, Kennebunkport, Kittery, Pemiquid lighthouse and Freeport. Highly recommended."

  • Charming, Well-Located, Comfy

    "My wife, our pets Eli and India and I stayed at the Sheacliff apartment on Orr's Island during the end of July, beginning of August, 2014. What a delightful, clean, beautifully appointed, comfy and well situated accommodation this is. It's just a few minutes walk to the picturesque Lowell's Cove, where we walked almost every morning, and a point of departure for touring the Maine coast along Orr's and Bailey islands, Harpswell and further afield to Freeport, Bath, Brunswisck and Damariscotta. Our hosts Shirley, Kevin and Mark made us feel at home. Do sound out Mark for his recommendations on where to eat locally on Orr's and Bailey islands, as well as farther afield. All of his recommendations were spot on for value, taste, and service. Two recommendations with particularly gorgeous views are the Dolphin Marina and Restaurant and Estes Lobster House with its lobster specials. And for some of the most inventive and delicious tavern fare we've ever had, drive over to Damariscotta and King Eider's Pub. We highly recommend Sheacliff and would happily pay a return visit whenever we stay on the mid Maine coast."

Portland & Casco Bay Travel Tips

Portland Vacation Rentals for a Year-Round Tourist Destination

As a year-round tourist location, it’s hard to beat Portland and Casco Bay in Maine. Portland vacation rentals are ideally placed for this culturally and historically rich area. Day and night, the bustling Portland harbor is buzzing with activity, with tourist boats coming and going, fishermen at work and restaurants filled with people. Choose a Casco Bay lodging choice near the harbor to be in the middle of the action. You will find a Maine lodging choice to suit any family or group of friends looking for a vacation in this scenic area.

Portland Vacation Rentals in the Largest of Maine’s Cities

Portland is the largest of Maine’s cities and it is the hub of its renowned art community. Thus, Portland vacation rentals are in one of the most sought-after locations in the region. Dating from the 1800s, the Old Port is now a high-class shopping area with a wide variety of restaurants around your Casco Bay lodging choice. The city takes its heritage seriously and buildings around your Maine lodging choice are maintained to an exceptionally high standard.

Casco Bay Lodging for Ferries and Hot Air Balloons

A benefit to Portland vacation rentals is their proximity to the ferries to Nova Scotia. It’s worth jumping a ferry to head off to Casco Bay’s Calendar Islands for a great day out. The adventurous traveler in a Casco Bay lodging choice might prefer to undertake a slightly more unusual mode of travel and opt for a hot air balloon trip as a novel way to see the region. Staying in Maine lodging, you will wonder how many times you will have to return before you’ve seen it all!

Maine Lodging For Culture for Kids

For the culturally minded, there are so many museums and so much history here that you will struggle to fit it all in within just one vacation. Portland vacation rentals cater for the culturally minded children too with their own museum. From Casco Bay lodging you will find an amazing variety of walks and excursions to be undertaken. While staying in a Maine lodging, there is also the chance to see the Portland Pirates play hockey or the Sea Dogs if baseball is your game.
