About Cheryl Lewis & Pauline Levin

I am a restauranteur and chef and have owned several restaurants in the Portland area and Boston.

I garden for fun and food, love music, travel, art, books, people, food and conversation. I am basically a social person but leave guests alone in their private apartment and am here to help. I love where we live and want to show off my town!

I love to enjoy the area I'm in whether I'm traveling or home.

Why Cheryl Lewis & Pauline Levin chose Portland & Casco Bay

I constantly pinch myself because where we live is special. I am so lucky to be across the street from one of the best beaches in Maine AND only 20 minutes from Portland. The is so much to do here and yet it's easy to do nothing!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is a real Oasis and contains everything that you need for a few nights or an extended stay. There is plenty to do in the area: the options are endless! There are also 4 chickens on the property.

We enjoyed every minute!

We loved this little apartment! The decor was adorable and the hospitality was commendable! From the fresh flowers on the table and the fresh eggs in the fridge, to the kitchen that had everything we needed...we were very impressed! Thank you!

Beautiful spot, wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Pine Point Beach was very relaxing. Right across from a beautiful beach in a quiet area. Can walk to Old Orchard Beach if you want more action or drive to Portland for just about anything. Also, Kennebunkport, Freeport are a very short drive as well. The owners left me a list of suggestions for dining out, groceries, live music, just about everything. Even brought me fresh flowers from their garden one evening when I returned home. A lovely spot.

Best accommodations ever.

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that Pauline and Cheryl were both so welcoming, warm and a real pleasure. The property offered so much more than a modern apartment. There is a covered patio, which was very useful when we wanted to get out of the sun but stay outside. The yard also offered a fire pit and lovely gardens. All this made for a wonderful vacation that we would like to repete. Also just a note, the shower was also awesome, Plenty of hot water and water pressure, those of you who have experienced the other end will know how appreciated this is! The beach is a short walk maybe 5 min. I really can't say enough good things about this property or the owners. Hope to be back in 2017.

Owner's Response: Thanks Karen! It was such a pleasure to have you both here! We just loved how engaged you were with the property and how you took such advantage of your surroundings and of beach combing opportunities!! And you left the place so clean! We hope to see you again here in Pine Point! Best, Cheryl and Pauline

cosy apartment

  • 4 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights. The apartment has a lot of space and the kitchen has everything you need to cook. The beach is less than 2 minutes by walking and is very nice.

Pauline and Cheryl were pleasant and helpful. We felt welcome and comfortable.
