Fantastic Home in the Heart of Portland
"This home was a perfect for us. Initially we chose this property because of the beautiful roof top deck and the grille. We had wonderful breakfasts on the deck as well as some nice evening dinners and cocktails, enjoying the night sky. We stayed the week of Labor Day, which turned out to be extremely warm, and it was perfect in the mornings and evenings. The beautiful plants and flowers make it a great place to relax.
The lay-out is nice, as it has 2 totally separate areas for sleeping; one bedroom, the larger of the two, is on the lower level, and the second bedroom is on the 3rd floor; both have their own bathrooms and a washer and dryer located on the lower level bedroom area. One of the most pleasant surprises to us is the incredible kitchen. Not only was it well stocked with almost anything you could need, it was a spacious area for a number of us to prepare a meal, or casually graze.
Within a 10 minute walk of most of the restaurants and tourist areas in Portland, we seldom drove, and we enjoyed walking to our destinations, and felt very safe in the neighborhood. Some of the things we like doing are: taking the ferry to Peaks Island and renting bikes; going to restaurants like Fore Street and Back Bay Grille; hanging out at the Portland Lobster Company; and for sightseeing the Portland Discovery Land & See Lighthouse Tour is great. The home is very clean and comfortable, and the homeowners were extremely helpful. The listing description and pictures are very accurate. We would definitely recommend renting this property, and will hopefully return again."

"My husband and I rented this wonderful 4 bedroom home for a family vacation with our sons and grandchildren. The house is fully furnished with everything you would need to cook or simply play a board game. There are closets galore. There is a stacked washer and dryer that is very small and does require some planning on checkout day to wash the towels, but it's not insurmountable. We had a great time."

"Great location in the arts district. Easy walk to downtown, numerous restaurants, and the waterfront. Off street parking a huge plus.
Also, Connie was great at responding to any and all questions/inquiries we had, and had several suggestions for things to do and places to eat."

"The cottage was charming and the pictures don't do it justice. It has been beautifully remodeled, and decorated. The location is fabulous! Just a short walk to Higgins Beach. I've made many trips to the Portland area over the last 40 years and this may be my new favorite place. So much to see and do nearby....we went to an adorable lobster shack on Blackpoint road and ordered steamed lobsters to go! We would definately return to the cottage!"
