Why The Owner chose Goose Rocks Beach

Over 20 years ago, my husband and I chose to buy in Goose Rocks Beach because of its natural beauty and coastal New England charm. This is truly a special place. Both homeowners and visitors feel free to stroll the beach and friendly neighborhoods, as many have been doing for generations. We enjoy a wonderful combination of relaxation and varied activities. Being midway between urban Portland and Portsmouth, you can find lots to do,or you can stay here at the beach, relax, and then do nothing! We're less than a 2 hour drive from Boston, and less than a 6 hour drive from Montreal, but feel like we're 'away from it all'!

A GREAT Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at the Garden Cottage -- what a GREAT location! The Cottage was very clean, cute and had everything you need (bring your own towels and linens though). It was just perfect - clear down to the fresh flowers on the kitchen table! Jean and Peter were wonderful landlords with suggestions and stories about the area. We had a wonderful week! The Goose Rocks Beach is one of the nicest beaches in the area -- and for October, the water was still warm! It was a great time of the year to visit the area. Thanks for your kindness, Peter and Jean -- it was nice to get to know you! Jim and JoAnn

Charming Cottage, Great Location, Friendly Owners -- Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week's stay at the Garden Cottage with my best friend and we had a fantastic time. The cottage is beautifully maintained, well appointed (we didn't miss or need a thing) and the private garden was a great place to enjoy some wine and cheese after a hard day of beach combing and lounging. Its location is perfect -- just an easy, quick walk to Goose Rocks Beach, a few minutes drive to both Kennebunkport and Cape Porpoise and an easy drive to Portland, Freeport, and other Maine areas. The owners were super helpful even before we arrived, giving us suggestions to help us plan our trip. Once there, they were friendly, informative and accessible without being intrusive. My friend and I both said we can't wait to go back.

If you go, make sure you check out The Ramp in Cape Porpoise for a great, waterside dinner. Allisons and Bandaloop in the heart of Kennebunkport were also terrific dinner spots. Ate at Gran's for lunch several days. Their pannis and chowders were excellent.

Absolutely wonderful vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely vacation we had at this perfectly-appointed cottage. Within a two hour drive from Boston, we were a world away in a quiet neighborhood one block from the Maine seashore! The owners were a delight to work with and keep their rental unit spotless while including lots of extra amenities (most notably the beach chairs which we used almost every day). The interior of the cottage has a downstairs (kitchen/living room area and powderroom) and upstairs (bedroom and full bathroom with walk-in closet of sorts) connected by a spiral staircase. There was much more storage and space upstairs than we could tell in the pictures, and our immediate thought upon stepping in to the cottage on arrival is that the pictures don't do it justice! It is completely charming with everything from the sailboat decor to the lobster shack recommendations on the inside of the cupboard door! Last but certainly not least is the exterior. The owners take such beautiful care of their gardens that just sitting on the lovely porchswing and admiring their flowers is a vacation unto itself! We also loved how the renters are even designated an area of the outdoor property to themselves, which includes a small deck, porchswing, adirondack chairs, and a grill. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation - we can't wait to come back!

Perfect for a couple!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is exactly as described, immaculate, and is truly in a perfect location - close to the village, and within easy drives to Boston and Portland areas. Being within one block of the beach is great, and the beach is beautiful. The owners were welcoming, available, and extremely helpful in listening to our interests and talking with us about things to do and see during our week's stay. The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens was one of our favorite day trips. Highly recommend this property!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my husband and I. Goose Rocks Beach is amazing... probably the most beautiful beach in New England. If you have never been there, you really need to check it out. The cottage is adorable and plenty of space for 2 people. The owner has done a fantastic job with the gardens and they really made sure that we enjoyed our stay. No complaints.
