What makes this Cottage unique
This cottage lot has southern exposure. The smell of the ocean air and a nice breeze off the bay make it very pleasant for a true seaside experience!

Great except for one issue
Loved the location and a great place!
Loved everything EXCEPT the owner pushed us to leave before checkout time.
Hello Tom, Thank you both again for staying at the cottage and being so respectful of the space. We really appreciated it and hope that you return in the future! I apologize for my text the morning of check-out coming across in that manner. It was certainly not my intent to push you to leave earlier than the 11 am check-out since our next guest was checking-in at 4 pm (sufficient time for the housecleaner to prepare the cottage before the next guest that day). After receiving the reply back to my text that morning that you would not be leaving earlier than 11 am check-out time, I offered an extended check-out time of 11:30 am (if you didn't mind me grabbing the laundry at 11 am). Unfortunately, due to our next guest checking in that same day and managing the housecleaner's busy schedule, offering a 1/2 hour extended check-out time was the best that I could do. We have many guests that leave earlier than the 11 am check-out, so I was only requesting a message if you were leaving earlier to alert our housecleaner. I apologize again if this came across pushy and I'll be more mindful of my wording choice in the future. It was honestly not my intent to push you both to leave early. I was actually smiling when I read the text reply back that morning that you would not be leaving earlier than 11 am since you were enjoying the relaxed pace! The cottage and location surely support that kind of experience and energy :-) Thank you again for the opportunity to host your stay! It was really appreciated. Regards, Amy
Meticulous host and cottage
Great place to jump off and explore sandy state park beaches within 20-30 minutes of the cottage. The cove at the end of the road is perfect for launching kayaks on Casco Bay. The property has a good sized yard sheltered from neighbors. Amy is an attentive and professional host. A delightful week was had by all!
Excellent location and thoughtful details!
We loved the relaxing town of Falmouth and the superb location of this cottage. The space was just right for our small family and the owners thought of everything. We especially loved having everything (local beach, rustic country store) within easy walking distance.
If you're looking for a cute and convenient place to stay in a quiet seaside Maine town, you can't beat this place or this price. We will be back!
Thank you, Alyssa, for the thoughtfully written review. You and your family are welcome to return anytime and I sure hope that you do!
Charming is an understatement! I'd go as far as to say LUXURIOUS!
To start with, the hostess is very friendly, communicative, accommodating and leaves no questions unanswered . We had a last minute change of plans and she came through like a champ! As far as the property goes, there is no stone left unturned and no amenity unthought of, we truly felt right at home. The yard is surprisingly large and exquisitely manicured as is the interior of the cottage and the neighborhood in general, pride in ownership is felt all around! LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION is what it's all about folks and this property has it all! We spent our mornings just lazing about in the yard and wandering down to the water, our afternoons were spent exploring state parks/lighthouses or shopping at the outlet stores topped off with lovely evenings enjoying Portlands offerings, all within convenient driving distance. I could live there, no question! Thank you, Amy, for creating and sharing an ideal haven, we will be back!
Thank you, Monica, for your wonderfully written review. It's surely appreciated! You are welcome to return anytime ;-)
Beautiful home with lots of charm!!!
Friends of mine and their families with children ranging from 4-14 recently came into town for an overdue reunion and some of them stayed at this amazing home! (We actually booked both homes on the property for additional space.) All of my friends and I agreed that this was an incredibly beautiful home with so much beachside charm. The downstairs was open and spacious and allowed for fun group gatherings. Everything was immaculate and so cared for. The house is full of supplies in the kitchen, bedrooms, and for the beach! The owner is clearly dedicated to making this house a unique and special away-from-home-stay! Without question, this is a perfect rental!! We would ALL highly recommend this home!!
Thank you, Christie, for your thoughtfully written review! You and your guests are welcome to return anytime ;-)
To add clarity for future guests reading this review, Christie rented the 4 bedroom/2 bath, two-story house and this one bedroom/one bath cottage (both located on the same property). Both structures are completely separate rentals with two driveways and private lawns.
This cottage is located in the desirable Falmouth Foreside, Maine in a friendly neighborhood with ocean views. There are many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors while taking in the beautiful scenery. You'll often see people walking or running along Foreside Road (Rt. 88 - a portion of the annual Maine Marathon route), as well as wooded trails off nearby public parks. A relaxing stroll to a local favorite, The Town Landing Market, is only 5 minutes away. If you enjoy sailing, kayaking/stand-up paddleboarding or salt-water fishing, there is public access at the end of the street, as well as at the public Falmouth Town Landing 5 minutes away. If sitting on a beach at low tide overlooking Casco Bay and sailboats appeals to you, then Underwood Cove is a perfect choice only a few steps away. All ages enjoy the exploration of this beach at low tide as well ;-)
Falmouth Foreside was featured in Down East Magazine as one of Maine's most prestigious neighborhoods and is positioned only 15 minutes from the City of Portland often voted on the Top 10 places to visit nationally. Portland was named one of the country’s top 25 art destinations by American Style magazine.
