About Diane Deering

My husband and I have summered on Fortune's Rocks Beach since 1970. We fell in love with this cottage and it was the perfect spot to vacation with our daughters. We have spent hours on this family-friendly beach: looking for sea shells, playing in the waves, and building sand castles. Now they look forward to returning to this special place ever summer - more and more appreciative of the beauty of Fortune's Rocks.

Diane Deering purchased this cottage in 1983

Why Diane Deering chose Biddeford

It's affordable, cheerful and has a beautiful location - steps from one of New England's best beaches.

Sweet, clean and comfortable. Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay. The cottage was clean and comfortable and a short walk from the beach. Diane greeted us and everything was as we expected. Couldn't have been easier or more relaxing. Another great Maine vacation! Can't wait to come back!

going back!

We rented this cottage with our best friends to once again enjoy Biddeford Pool and to celebrate our 40th anniversary's together. Great place for a small family or two couples. Very cozy.
