Classic Maine Cottage - 4 BR, huge yard, 60 yards from beach, great for families
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
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Quaint and Convenient
The house was very quaint and comfortable. We found it more than adequate for our use and loved the proximity to the beach and to the UNE campus as we were there for graduation weekend. Bedrooms are small, but since most of our time was spent outside or touring around, we were fine with that. Kitchen could have some more cooking convenience to it, as there are few pans, but we managed. More information could be provided about the heating sources and which heating controls are set up, as it was a bit chilly while we were there. We enjoyed our time and Fortune's Rock Beach is only a few steps away--very convenient!
Thank you so much for your sweet note at the cottage - I'm so glad you had a nice stay and enjoyed a festive graduation weekend! Yes, we have added new pots and pans and will leave more details/instructions about heat sources - especially for preseason guests who may experience chilly weather. Also, there is a thermostat in every room; electric heat is available at all times. Thanks so much for your helpful feedback - I hope you have a fantastic summer!
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!
Thank you for your review, Linda. I'm so glad you've chosen to be one of our several returning guests! We greatly appreciate it.
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!
