OCEAN PARK-Cozy Cottage~Ocean Breezes~Set in the Pines

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 - 180 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)


Cozy cottage set in the pines of Ocean Park with a private deck facing a brook. There is out door seating for 6 on the deck, with a gas grill for your barbecues. An inside dining room has additional seating for 6-8. You will love the up-dated features that maintain respect for the historic qualities of the cottage and setting. The bath features an original footed tub (with shower added)... and a pedestal sink complements the era. Two upstairs bedrooms feel open and airy. The front bedroom is connected to a sunny sleeping porch that now serves as a separate reading nook. This room has 2 twins that may be used separately, or maintained as a king bed. The second bedroom is smaller, and is usually kept as twin beds. A sofa bed in the living room adds space for two more guests.

You will love the old 1950s feel of the community, the privacy of this setting, yet you will still be in the midst of it all. The cottage is conveniently located within walking distance to the beach, tennis courts, shuffle board, and local charm. Ocean Park is in southern, coastal Maine where 7 miles of sandy beaches are at the end of the street. Opportunities for riding the waves, kayaking to a light house, hiking, walking, surfing, biking, Ferry Beach State Park, and cultural and educational programs are all right at your finger tips. Enjoy Southern Coastal Maine. 15 minutes by car to Portland International Jetport, 1 1/2 hours to Boston/Logan.

About The Owner

I love southern Maine for its beauty... for the many opportunities for 4 season recreation, and for the convenient access to cultural and historic activities in Portland/Boston.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1999

Why The Owner chose Southern Coast

This is a beautiful setting in the privacy of the pines, yet within walking distance to 7 miles of beautiful sandy beaches. You can visit for hours with friendly folks at the Soda Fountain, browse for gifts, visit the library, attend worship, play tennis, golf, shuffleboard, or participate in numerous educational, musical, or cultural activities, kayak, go hiking, visit Ferry Beach State Park. It's a wonderful place to be in the summer!

What makes this cottage unique

Great family oriented community where memories are made!

In addition to the beach, (at the end of the street), the rec hall, tennis courts, shuffle board courts, post office, deli, soda fountain, gift shops, children's play area, and library are all within walking distance

REVIEW UP-DATES: We realize that people rely on reviews to make vacation decisions. We have had no reviews for a while because we have been enjoying the cottage for personal use. The cottage is also occupied off season by families in transition. I will be up-dating the listing to show improvements, that we have added a washer/dryer and have cable and internet for everyone's additional convenience. Please feel free to send us a message if you have additional questions or concerns.

Decent cottage near beautiful beach

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed here for the last 2 summers. It is a cute cottage that is nicely decorated in a beachy theme. Great location about 2 blocks near beautiful Ocean Park beach. Nice little ice cream shop and gift store nearby. It is also a short drive to the busy Old Orchard area which is a fun place to walk around but it is nice not being in the thick of it all week. Funtown / Splashtown is always a hit with the kids and is just a few minutes away. Movie theater nearby as well. Lots to do! The cottage is a small, quaint place. The bedrooms upstairs were ok though they were very hot for sleeping. We mentioned it to the owner before renting a second time and she was very responsive and purchased an air conditioner the second year after we mentioned it and it made it more comfortable. The bath/shower isn't ideal. Nice looking claw tub but not very practical. Priced right to account for the pros and cons! Owner was responsive and nice to work with.

nice cottage

  • 2 of 5

Potentially nice little property. There was no brook and the back lot was all grown in. We were really disappointed that the deck was unusable due to so much mold and mildew. The shower was very difficult to use withou flooding the floor and the carpets were not clean. Overall, this could be a very nice little getaway with just a bit of owner attention to it. It's location is wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback, Pat. It was very helpful in our improvements. We now have a pressure washer for the deck and have cleared the yard for a better view of the brook. (Yes, there is a brook there!) We were also able to locate the stain on the carpet in the reading area. This too, will be addressed with the seasonal cleaning!! Thank you, again for your valuable input! Hope that you will stop by to see the improvements!

I stayed here a couple of summers. Nice peaceful location about 5 minute walk to quiet ocean beach and about 30-45 minute walk to OOB pier. The two upstairs bedrooms are twins, one of them with the ability to push beds together. Neither room has a door on it, although the first year I did buy curtains that I hung in the doorway. The shower is not big and the water temp kept changing on me. Something kept getting in the trash outside, so I was having to clean that up. Cute little cottage though. Town has tennis courts, post office, deli, ice cream, gifts, and couple of restaurants.

Owner's Response: Great to hear from you, Randy! Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad that you have enjoyed staying with us. Since your last visit, we have addressed the containers to keep the "critters" out, and added a bedroom door. Your comments and feedback were very helpful! Best wishes, Lin

Ocean Park is a 15-18 minute commute to the airport and Portland to the north, or Kennebunkport to the south. Cruise lines offer these as excursion destinations (to Portland passengers) as well as LL Bean and other outlet destinations. The cottage sits directly behind the historic Temple in Ocean Park, known for educational, cultural, entertainment and musical performances, as well as interdenominational worship on Sunday mornings.
