About Martha Israel

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.

Martha Israel purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Martha Israel chose Portland & Casco Bay

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.

Classic Coastal Cottage: Quiet Location Right Across from Beach

picture perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay for a beach vacation. We loved it. It is the absolutely most adorable cottage located right across the street from a public beach walkway. Literally 2 minutes to the sand! And even better, it is at the less crowded end of Old Orchard so that you get the benefit of all the excitement and activity of Old Orchard central, but you have the quiet and privacy of being at the most lovely Pine Point end of the beach. And lots of free parking right there. The perfect place to stay for an OOB vacation.
