Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My family moved to Vermont 20 years ago, but I still feel like a Mainer at heart. The cottage is my vacation home, my way of still being in Maine. Unfortunately my work doesn't allow me to spend alot of time there, so I rent it part of the year. Because the cottage is my home and not a primary rental property, I want to rent to responsible, low-key people who will respect my cottage and the neighboring cottages as they would their own home.

Why the Owner Chose Pine Point, Scarborough, ME, USA:
If you love coastal Maine and want to walk the beach and smell the salty air, this is the place for you. I chose Pine Point because I wanted to be on the spectacular, sandy 7 mile beach, but wanted peace and quiet - away from the noise and activity of OOB. Pine Point is a residential neighborhood that does not have commercial development. Yet it is only 8 miles from downtown Portland and the Old Port Area - when you want some of the best food, entertainment and culture that Maine has to offer. My cottage has the best of both worlds! It is a very classic, old-fashioned Maine coast cottage, built in the 1940s. I have decorated it with local antiques, flea-market finds and items from LL Bean. It is located directly across the street from a section of the beach which has no public parking and so is very unpopulated. The beach is at the end of a beautiful walkway through wild sand grass. There is a small take out clam shack one block away and a working lobster cove (with a fresh fish market) at the end of the street at Pine Point Landing. It is the perfect vacation spot for someone looking for a quiet, peaceful retreat where you can enjoy the magnificent beauty of the Maine coast.
