  • Couldn't Ask for Anything More

    "This was the first of many vacation homes we've rented that felt genuinely welcoming and as comfortable as our own home. It was meticulously clean but not sterile and had everything we needed, and more. Jan and Ken pay attention to every detail so their guests have little to do other than enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the idyllic setting. You won't be disappointed!"

  • No need to ever leave the deck!

    "My husband & I spent two weeks in Maine and rented the Osprey's Nest for the last week. We are both avid birders and kayakers so we spent the entire time on the deck or in the water. From the deck we saw seals, tons of osprey and bald eagles fishing. It was quite and comfortable - a great place to spend the day watching the tides come in and out or reading a book. There is so much coastline to explore in the area and small towns close enough to do lots of day outings. We ate almost all our meals there because we didn't want to leave the deck. The place was very clean and has everything you might need. We can't wait to go back."

  • 3 Generation Vacation

    "We were completely delighted with our week long vacation at 37 Goose Cove. We had grandparents from Texas, "children" from South Carolina, New York, District of Columbia and Texas plus grandchildren from those locations also. The house was clean and well-stocked. The view was great and there were plenty of activities to keep everyone happy."

  • Can't wait to come back!

    "Our family of six had a fabulous time at this lovely cottage. The location of the cottage was private and the views were spectacular. The house is sturdy and spacious. We could not have asked for more. The fellas hit golf balls into the bay at low tide and the rest of us had a blast looking for them before the water came in. We made day excursions to Georgetown Pottery and Popham Beach and fort (so special!) -- but mostly we loved to sit on the porch or in the comfortable adirondack chairs on the grass, and talk and laugh. We liked Frank enormously -- he was available to answer questions anytime but never hovered. We recommend this cottage without reservation -- you can't find a nicer place in Maine. I am going to hear the waves lapping in the shore of my dreams all year."

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.
