About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Echo Cottage #1 is on a premier beachfront location and is part of the Echo Motel & Oceanfront Cottages complex. 1-207-934-5174. You cannot find a cottage closer to the ocean. There is a private beach area adjoining 7 miles of sandy beach. The property features unobstructed views of the ocean which are truly breathtaking. The cottage is up to date with many conveniences and available May through October for rental. Totally renovated in 2009, the interior features a beautiful pine finish and is decorated with a nautical theme. We are known for cleanliness. The upstairs balcony and downstairs porch offer unobstructed views of the ocean overlooking Saco Bay from Prout's Neck in Scarborough to Camp Ellis in Saco. There are 4 upstairs bedrooms and a full upstairs bathroom; a full kitchen, living room, and a full bathroom on the lower level. Linens and an initial set-up of toiletries are provided. Please bring your own beach towels. A washer/dryer is located on the second floor and it requires the use of He detergent. We welcome groups of up to 8 persons. The cottage is a no pet, no smoking rental. There is an outdoor gas BBQ grill and a picnic table on the sand. Free Wi-Fi is provided and available throughout the cottage. Reserved parking for 3 cars. The Old Orchard Beach location is 1/2 miles, or a leisurely 10 minute walk, from 'The Pier' and downtown amusements. Staying in Cottage #1 gives you the option of participating in the downtown Old Orchard Beach's lively atmosphere or you may choose to have a more serene experience staying at the cottage. Summer morning sunrises are especially memorable and you will not have to search for the sun as you will have the finest view available. Many of our guests travel the short distance, 30 minutes, to Portland, Maine and other points of interest within a short commute. There are a number of lighthouses to visit and locations where you may observe the rocky coast of Maine. A major supermarket, movie theater, and an amusement park named Funtown are within a 10 minute ride, and Southern Maine Mall, within a 20 minute ride from the cottage.

Best Summer Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We originally inquired about this property but this particular cottage was already booked for the summer of 2015. So Leslie told us about Echo Cottage # 2, which was exactly what we wanted. Oceanfront property with plenty of room for our two families and close enough to the Pier/Downtown area. The pictures were beautiful but seeing it in person was even better. Although it was a rainy, cloudy day when we arrived.. the views from the decks were amazing! Just arriving at the ocean at such a clean, beautiful property we were all so excited! We enjoyed our week here and still cant stop talking about our fantastic week! We are hoping we get to come back in 2016!

I can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family vacation with our 5 1/2, 2 1/2 and 10 month old children, so you can imagine the amount of work it takes! It was raining, ALOT, when we got to Cottage 1 but as soon as we walked in, I felt like I was at home! My daughter wanted to live at cottage 1 forever. It is impeccably clean, beautifully convenient to the beach and the pier, extremely cozy and it has everything that you need! I was so delighted to be at this place and it helped make our vacation amazing, even though it was raining for 3 days. The owners clearly put so much effort into keeping the cottage clean and their attention to detail is phenomenal. This is an excellent rental; there is no room for disappointment. Rain or shine, you'll be happy and cozy, sipping a drink on the deck, with an amazing view. We were lucky enough to see the almost full moon rise up out of the ocean! I'll never forget this vacation and I cannot wait to go back! Thank you Leslie and Paul.
