About Diane Deering

My husband and I have summered on Fortunes 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 Fortunes Rocks

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.

*All rates include tax and cleaning fee

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week staying here. Charming house was very clean, even the windows! Even though it is not situated on the ocean, it still had an ocean view and being located on a pond gave it an added dimension. The covered and enclosed porches are nice features. The short walk to the beach, the private setting and very nice owners gave us an overall wonderful experience!
