About Diane Deering

My husband and I have summered on Fortune's Rocks Beach since 1970. We fell in love with this classic Maine 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.

Why Diane Deering chose Biddeford

Nice big yard, ample parking and spacious layout for guests. The cottage is in a convenient location, just steps from the best beach in Maine, and offers a comfortable decor. It's fully equipped with two TVs, cable and wifi, but it's also a spot to get away from the hustle and bustle. It's classic; it's comfortable and it's very Maine - 'the way life should be.'

What makes this cottage unique

relaxing outdoor shower, which some guests claim is their favorite spot!

Full-sized kitchen for dining and entertaining guests.

Pond access, directly on our property, for kayaking or canoeing.

Great place for a family vacation!! We had a blast....easy to drive into Kennebunkport or Portland for some sight seeing and great restaurants. The beach is the best in New England!
