About Karen & Buddy Baker

We live in Sandown New Hampshire and it's been our dream to own a cottage near the ocean. We had memorable vacations with our 2 kids (Megan & Tommy) taking the Downeaster Train from Exeter NH up to different locations in Maine. Our 1st trip was to OOB and we had such fun!! We feel very lucky to own such a cute little cottage in Maine :)

Karen & Buddy Baker purchased this house in 2014

Charming beach cottage, short walk to the pier

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying the week at this cute beach cottage. While only 750 square feet, there was ample space in this 2-bedroom for 4 adults and one child. The home was well-maintained, nicely decorated, had many amenities (including washer/dryer) and a tidy back-yard area complete with a small deck, fire pit and grill. The beach and pier were a short, 5 minute walk. We enjoyed having meals as a family in a full kitchen, trips to the beach, getting ice cream and sweets at the pier, playing at the arcade and carnival, watching fireworks, making s’mores, and buying souvenirs at the local shops. We also took two day-trips to Portland and Kennebunkport, ME which were both around a 30 minute drive or less. We had a pleasant experience working with the owners, Karen and Buddy Baker, and appreciate them opening their home to us for the week. We made many memories, and highly recommend Old Orchard Beach and this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing Maine getaway at the beach, especially families with younger children. We hope to be back!

Perfect beach house

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house, it was so nicely decorated and perfect size for our family. We enjoyed the location providing the short distance to the beach and the boardwalk. Everything that we needed was provided for us. I would probably add a small outdoor umbrella style clothesline so you do not have to use the dryer all the time for bathing suits, etc.

The perfect location for a family trip to OOB

  • 5 of 5

This was my families first trip to Old Orchard Beach and this was the perfect place to stay. Ideal setup with a great deck, grill, yard and fire pit and just a 5 minute walk to the center. Close to the beach but far enough away so that the center noise, including the train, was never heard. Can't wait to come back

The house is super clean, comfy, and close to the pier and beach. The owners went above and beyond in making the house a home. They supplied everything from towels, dishes, beach chairs, games, and even wood for the fire pit. We can't wait to return.
