About the property

4 Bedroom (sleeps 12), 2 bathroom home with amazing beach front location

Welcome to the 2018 renting season! As of early March during the high season we have one week available in June and one week in July.

We look forward to hearing from you if this fits your desired schedule.

Whether you are a couple looking for a quiet weekend away, or a big family looking for a place that can accommodate up to 12 people or folks of different ages, this is the place for you. With beautiful views, ample space and beach-front access, this house can't be beat!

This classic beachfront house is located on the private side of Goose Rocks and has direct access to three miles of pristine, white sand beach. Used by family members and a stable group of long-time renters, there are only a few weeks available each year. The first floor has a kitchen and bathroom, both recently renovated, one bedroom, and an open, integrated living and dining room. This main area has three seating arrangements, an 8-10 person dining table, a picture window looking onto the beach, and a flat screen TV. The main living area opens to the outdoor deck, which has a gas grill and an umbrella-covered outdoor dining table. This is a terrific location to relax in the late afternoon. The upstairs contains a full bathroom and three bedrooms: one ‘bunk room’ with six single beds, one bedroom with two twin beds, and a master bedroom with a queen bed. The front lawn contains Adirondack chairs and a low table, perfect for morning coffee. The lawn, which is dotted with pine trees, encircles the house and completes the setting.

About Michael Rigney

Our family has owned this house since the mid 1980's, when our parents went searching for a vacation home in Maine. We're a big family -- seven children -- and the house has been a formative part of our lives. We played here as children, lived and worked here together as teenagers and college students, and now bring our own families here to play in the sand and swim in the ocean.

Michael Rigney purchased this house in 1986

Why Michael Rigney chose Goose Rocks Beach

Our ongoing family tradition captures what's special about this property: upon first arriving, we almost always walk up the side lawn to get a look at the beach. Thirty years later, it's a favorite part of the ritual of coming back.

What makes this house unique

The house is located directly on the beach, allowing easy access and a relaxed, full experience of the beach, Goosefare Bay, and the open ocean, from dawn to dusk and into the night. The front lawn is an ideal location for morning coffee, afternoon reading, or evening beach viewing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Goose Rocks Beach has been part of our family for over 40 years. This will be our 10th summer at the Rigney cottage. The house is casual, comfortable and furnished with care: perfect for a magical family vacation! Not to mention, a lovely and breathtaking location.

Perfect Beach "Home Away from Home"

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this wonderful home and we loved it even more this time! Goose Rocks Beach is the best beach in the area and the house occupies a perfect location on the beach. This charming home is very clean and comfortable; it easily accommodated our family of 8 adults and one baby. The furnishings are very nice and the house is stocked with every amenity one could need. We will definitely be back!

Gorgeous views, very relaxing - a true get-a-way .

  • 5 of 5

House was roomy, has a well stocked kitchen, and plenty of gathering areas. Owners were very easy to get a hold of and responded quickly to any questions. Best views of the Atlantic Ocean. We would definitely stay here again! Loved our Maine experiences.

Wonderful Family Trip to Goose Rocks Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect. Everything you need for a wonderful stay and right on the beach! With 10 people ranging in age from 6-72, we all had a wonderful time celebrating at 50th wedding anniversary. The owners are very responsive and reachable. The beach is beautiful and the house is the perfect size. We will be back!

Oceanfront dream house

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a marvelous time in Maine with my family. The house was perfect. Everything we needed was available. The beds were confortable. Kitchenware, nothing missing. Windows everywhere, the beach fabulous. The owners were easily reachable and gave good advices on place to buy good fish. We had the luck to have a full moon night and clear sky. I wish I could keep it a secret, but since I'm a generous kind, I wanted to share my experience with you all. Thank you to the Rigney family to share their house.

A vacation to remember.

  • 5 of 5

As a child our family spent part of every summer vacationing in Maine and spent countless hours on Goose Rocks Beach. With our parents failing in health we knew our chance to have one last, amazing family vacation for us all to remember, on the beach we had all "grown up" on was upon us. And so, in July 2013, three generations of Grand parents, parents, aunts, uncles and cousins traveling from California to Massachusetts did just that. Having arrived, sight unseen, we weren't sure what to expect. We were NOT disappointed. The setting was breath taking and the house was absolutely amazing. The first floor is so open and provided so much space that we were all able to be together for family dinners and game night. The master bedroom on the first floor was perfect for the grand parents. They had their own easily accessible bedroom and bathroom while the rest of the family comfortably occupied the remaining bedrooms upstairs. The beach was just as amazing as we all remembered growing up and the next generation left feeling the same way. When it was time to go home, there were tears shed by all. No one wanted to leave the house we had claimed as home for the last week. The memories we made in this home are priceless. We hope to return soon and have highly recommended it to all our friends.

Extraordinary vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at this house several times, and I have vacationed at Goose Rocks since I was a teenager. The beach is just as spectacular and serene now as it was two decades ago (it never feels too crowded or loud, and it is perfect for long walks.) The house is on the private end of the beach--directly on the water. The views are unbeatable, the sunsets magical.

The house is recently renovated. Although it has always been comfortable and clean, it is now absolutely beautiful. Plenty of lovely sitting areas, a well-equipped kitchen, etc. It is a very well-cared for home, and the location cannot be beat.

I have traveled a fair amount, and this beach remains one of my absolute favorite places. It is truly special.
