About Marc Gagne
Owners Marc & Martha, both retired public school teachers, with a combined teaching career of 70 years hold Bachelor & Masters Degrees from the University of Southern Maine. He has lived in Old Orchard Beach all his life and she has resided there for the past 20 years. The purchase, remodel and decorating of the SEAGLASS COTTAGE (located adjacent to our home) has been a labor of love.The complete overhaul of the property began in 2004, with our first rental tenants arriving summer 2005. An additional construction project in 2008 added the second bathroom and master bedroom. We have had successful and rewarding rental seasons (as can be noted by the reviews) ever since. Marc's remodeling & construction skills combined with Martha's artistic eye and creativity have helped to create a beautiful, comfortable, welcoming, coastal retreat perfect for making summer memories by the sea. Color choices, bedding, furnishings & decor all add to the coastal feel and provide tenants a "home away from home" easy to acclimate to, and hard to leave. Many tenants have made returned visits summer after summer.

Great vacation home!
The Seaglass Cottage was even cuter in person! The whole home was very well stocked from the kitchen, to the linens, to extra blankets and pillows. The owners live nearby and were very kind. The house is centrally located to easily walk to the beach, the pier, Pirate's Cove miniature golf, and Palace Playland. We were able to easily drive to Portland and Saco for additional activities. We had some epic games of Sorry in the little dining room with our son. Overall great place to stay and great vacation!
Enjoyed our stay in old orchard beach! Would definitely recommend!
Excellent property, well thought out. My favorite part, besides the location, was the folder listing where to find anything you might need throughout the house. We stayed with our son and friends with their son both two years old and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. For future renters planning to do the cleaning yourself, be sure to give yourself plenty of time for drying the linens especially if its not a very hot day as this took us a lot longer than we expected. Overall a wonderful place to stay, quiet neighborhood and plenty of room to entertain. Lovely owners who made certain our stay was going well. Highly recommended.
Great Cottage! Tastefully decorated!
They had everything we needed and then some! They even brought us umbrellas the day we arrived (was raining terribly). We would definitely rent again!
Great place close to the beach - with amazingly nice hosts!
We spent a week in Old Orchard Beach and we were lucky to chose this beautiful cottage of Marc & Martha!
The house was a great place to stay, spacious, beautifully decorated and just a short walk from the beach...our kids (3 & 6) loved the place as well, it was the perfect place for our family week on the beach.
Also, when something had to be taken care of or when needing some local information - Marc & Martha were immediately there to help out. Great and super friendly personal service!
This is not just a vacation rental, but this felt like being home or being hosted by friends!
I'd recommend to book your spot for next year right away, you won't regret it!
We definitely hope to back,

Great location close to the beach. House was perfect for our family of 4 but can sleep more. Marc and Martha are the perfect hosts.
