Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

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 and very comfortable for 3 couples

  • 5 of 5

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 is an Understatment

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to Higgins Beach for years(20+) and because our previous cottage sold we were forced to find a new place. Well if you know Higgins Beach at all you know this can be a challenge. My husband found this cottage through VRBO and we couldnt have been happier. It is so beautiful. I loved the fact that even though it looks like a photo shoot from Pottery Barn you still had this overwhelming welcoming feel. The open floor plan allowed all of us to be together but not crowded. What also was great if how much was supplied. We brought with us all of our beach toys (boccee, ladder ball, frisbee) but we didnt need to because the garage was full of every beach game you could imagine. Again the property was beautiful and very well maintained and when I had a question the owner got back to me within the hour. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Nearby attractions also make this a very desirable place, every year my entire family goes to a Sea Dogs baseball game (13 of us) and we always find our way to Dimillos Restaurant in Portland. Can't wait for next year.

A Wonderful Week in Maine

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and would absolutely come again. The facilities are very up-to-date and yet, quite charming. A nice mix of modern and cozy. Easy access (about 20 minutes) to Portland is a big plus. There are endless outdoor activities along the Maine coast. We took in Scarborough Marsh, The Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, Kennebunkport, Evergreen Cemetery in Portland (a great place for birding), Pemaquid Point & lighthouse, and the fish ladders at Damariscotta mills. Breakfast at Higgins Beach Inn (a 3 minute walk) is good and reasonable.
