Rental Information: Welcome to Old Orchard Beach
Remember the summer when you were a child and your family left for a vacation? Remember how you dreamed about what you wanted to do to make your vacation perfect? First, there had to be things to do, lots of things, and then there had to be food, like pizza, fried dough, hamburgers, cotton candy, & popcorn, etc. And then there had to be a beach, a big broad stretch of sand where you could build castles, a place to run & throw footballs, a place to lay in the sun and feel its warmth. Remember those thoughts and dreams? That vacation still exists in Old Orchard Beach and is waiting for your children and the child still inside of you. It's almost impossible *not* to have fun at Old Orchard. Beside all the family-style restaurants downtown, you can try your luck at video games, jump on a ride, treat yourself to an ice cream or a cold soda. Thrills, chills, and frills, take your pick.
Directions to High Tide:: Take Maine Tnpk (#95) to Exit #36 (#195 East). Go through the toll booth for about a mile and bear left at the gas station onto Saco Avenue. Drive another mile to a set of lights (school and fire station on left), continue straight down the hill for a couple hundred yards to Pine Ave. on your right by the picket fence. Turn right and bear left and watch for 7th St. on your right. Go up 7th and turn right onto Evergreen Ave. Park in the large parking lot with the painted flowered fence on your left. Our gray van might be parked in there. Pull in beside it. We should be there to greet you with your keys to your home away from home. If by chance we are not present to greet you, go to the rental and make yourself at home. The door should be left unlocked waiting for your arrival. Begin your vacation and we will catch you when we arrive back from our business.

About the owner: I am a retired teacher from Boston, my wife was a nurses assistant from Riverside, NJ. We are both retired and enjoy Maine from early June to late October before leaving for our home in West Palm Beach, FL.
Why the Owner Chose Old Orchard Beach, ME, USA:
It's sqeaky clean, in a quiet neighborhood, and is close to all that OOB has to offer. Last year our property was rented fully right up to mid October, which tells you of its popularity.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It serves as a HUB reaching various locations in every direction, from Boston to the south, to NH to the west, Bar Harbor to the north, and all of Maine's wonderfull coastline of quaint villages with its nooks and crannies of surprises along the shore. Wonderful restaurants will be found in your travels and those unique gift shops and antique stores pop up in the most unusual places. You may find an old broken down castle, great ocean views, a path to the Giant Steps, a small settlement of rental cottages, a panoramic bay full of boats, all sorts of small restaurants with park benches to enjoy a lobsta roll or to just plain stop to rest some weary bones. Use your cell phone to find the Dolphin Mariner where the scenery is spectacular and has one of Maine's 'best kept secret ' restaurants to test your palate and where you will find Maine's BEST fish chowda, along with the free warm blueberry cupcake. It's guest book will tell you that others from all over the world have found their hard to find establishment. Helicopters arrive daily to allow their owners to taste the wonders of Harpswell Island. Enjoy crossing the strange looking Cribbage Bridge onto Orrs Island and enjoy the wonders of Bailey's Island, which I strongly feel is Maine's most scenic tour as many of the small side roads hide hidden treasures and ecletic views.
