Perfectly located and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in Falmouth. The house had all of the amenities that we needed and it is always easy to tell a house where the owners spend time. The bedrooms and linens were plentiful and the kitchen was ready for real cooking. Beautiful view and perfectly situated for the visits and trips that we wanted to take. We'll definitely consider this house for our future trips to Maine.

A wonderful home for a large family, including enough bedrooms, bathrooms and recreational areas.

  • 5 of 5

My family was visiting Maine from New Jersey to celebrate the marriage of my son and daughter-in-law. The ceremony was in NJ, however since my daughter-in-law is from Maine we had a party up there for her family and friends. We needed a place where we could all stay (my family) and this was the perfect place. While visiting we did do some local sightseeing. I am a lighthouse freek so my son's in-law's took us around to see some of the local lighthouses. We ate at a wonderful restaurant in Portland called The Salt Grille and also one called Cole Farms. Both were reasonable and the food was excellent. The party was at Gather restaurant where we also enjoyed our meal and drink.

We were pleasantly surprised to see so much of what would be needed at the home was already there, thanks to the owners and former renters. I would highly recommend this home to friends and family.

Still great!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed last year and liked the house and location so much that we came back - that's probably the best recommendation! It is still a wonderful house for a group (we are 3 sisters with spouses). We enjoyed being able to gather, but also to scatter within the spaciousness of the rambling house. Suggestion to visitors: bring your own blow dryer (we couldn't find one anywhere). Suggestion to owner: fix the cooktop (it's tempermental to the max - we did get it to work but as a renter, we were concerned that we would break it!).

Premier Address

  • 5 of 5

Foreside Road is a lovely street with many large, stately waterfront homes. Access to Route 295 to Portland is easy. Going west a bit brings you to Route 1 and all the necessary evils like Walmart, food and drug stores etc. But on Foreside Road you feel like you are in the country.

The house is very spacious, especially the living space on the first floor. The house is extremely well equipped. You can tell people who lived in the house outfitted it. Having 3 1/2 baths made it very comfortable for our extended family's stay. Also nice to have a washer and dryer since we had a few little ones who needed clean clothes. Great house for kids with lots of toys and playroom in the basement.

The water views are lovely. You do have a boatyard directly between the house and the water, but a hedge hides the view of boat trailers from the first floor. There is really no water access from the house. There is a fun restaurant on the water, Docksides, that isn't a bad walk from the house through the yard.

The only negative is phone service is a bit spotty, at least it was with Verizon. Apparently Falmouth isn't receptive to cell phone towers, hence the issue. There is wifi and although a bit slow, that worked fine.

Although not cheap, Portland hotel rooms in the summer are quite expensive, so comparatively, a good value and much nicer to have a whole house as opposed to hotel rooms.
