Comfortable, spacious & convenient home-base to explore and enjoy Portland
About Andy Mortensen
I was born and raise in Maine, went to college in Arizona and moved to New Orleans in 1995. After living in New Orleans for over 12 years, we moved back to New England to enjoy the great way of life!
Andy Mortensen purchased this House in 1997
Why Andy Mortensen chose Falmouth
* Please note, our house is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood so we do NOT allow parties or any outside guests - thanks for your understanding! With central AC, a heated 20 x 40 swimming pool, Hot Springs Jacuzzi and (4) bedrooms, we're a comfortable, spacious and very convenient home base for exploring Portland and all there is to do in the surrounding area! We provide everything to you need (except food!) including linens, cleaning supplies, washer/dryer supplies, even condiments in the refrigerator so just jump in the car in come for a visit!
What makes this House unique
This house has been the site of many reunions with friends and their children who live through out New England. My friends have been calling the house CAMP ANDY for years, their kids love the heated pool and the adults love the big hot tub!

Amazing space, perfectly appointed with everything you could need
I have stayed and may vacation rentals, and this home is in the top 2. The home is beautifully furnished to be both stylish and comfortable. The beds were all amazing, and had quality linens. There were both bath and pool towels, also of good quality. The kitchen has room to gather, along with plenty of quality pots and pans, plates, cups, and any other kitchen item one could need. We were left a great bottle of wine, and wonderful coffee, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The in home music system brought us tons of enjoyment, especially when we were lounging in the pool and hot tub. The pool was the perfect temperature, and there was plenty of outdoor seating for our entire family. There is even a small fire pit, so we were able to do smores for the kids. We were in Maine for a memorial service, and it was so nice to be able to arive at a home that truly had everything we needed. The only downside to this home is that it was so nice, we spent most of our time there in the pool and hot tub, so we didn't explore as much of Maine as we should have!
Great pool, lovely home!
Andy's house was very clean and had an amazing outside space. The pool and hot tub were fantastic! We did have an aggressive neighbor come over who was pretty rude. I would not suggest this house if you want to be outside at night or have windows open. We were inside listening to music and chatting. Andy was very kind about the situation, but the neighbor was over the top.
Amazing spot! Everything you could want in 1 spot
The house and outside area are beautiful and Andy the host was the best. We will definitely be booking next year!
Andy's Retreat was AMAZING - The home had everything that you would ever need for vacation
Andy's retreat provided us with the very best of everything! The heated pool and Hot Tub were awesome. The outside space allowed us to enjoy both sun and shade with plenty of seating and comfort for all . We spent a great deal of time in the outside space and loved every minute of it. The inside was just as amazing with 4 beautiful bedrooms which provide comfortable sleeping for all. The sun room and living room space allowed us to spread out and enjoy different activities at different times and the kitchen was the indoor gathering spot for all. The location was perfect -we spent time in Portland, Freeport and Old Orchard Beach during our week stay and the travel time was short and sweet. Andy was so responsive with any questions we had and I would highly recommend this home to all. We had a fantastic vacation and hope to return again to Andy's retreat.
Perfect vacation home!
Just want to say thank you, thank you to Andy for a fabulous home away from home. This place is a home, not just a place to stay. Andy is very helpful and goes out of his way to make sure you have a great time vacationing in Maine. A beautiful place we would love to revisit some day.
Very Comfortable Retreat...we will return
The property is as described and Andy is very accommodating and understanding of your needs. The house is well kept, well equipped and clean. I'm pretty sure we will be returning.....we had a blast. The complimentary bottle of Merlot was a nice touch as well.
We have two recommendations for Andy: First: The pavers around the pool need to be leveled or replaced. They are disintegrating in places and uneven around pool, especially around ladders. Might be hazardous in the near future. Replacing the pavers with concrete would be fantastic. Second: It would be nice to have a dresser in the master bedroom, there's plenty of closet space but a dresser there's no drawer space.
7 miles from Portland's Old Port and a quick 20 minutes to LL Bean and Freeport outlet stores.
