The nearby eastern trail may be enjoyed for biking, bird watching and snow showing.

Best of all is the 3-mile stretch of sandy pine point beach. The southern end of the beach is the boardwalk of old orchard. The northern end of the beach is bordered by the nonesuch river with a view of the black point inn. Around the bend are local lobster boats coming and going, seals riding the current, an oyster farm and people fishing off the pier and breakwater. The town landing with a harbor master shares recreational boat access with a working waterfront.

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.

Beautiful spot and effortless comfort!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the area, we were there over the long Labor Day weekend. The apartment was so convenient to so many areas. We enjoyed old orchard beach, pine point, black point inn, two lights state park, fort William and Portland. We ate our way through the area. Visited Scratch bakery, holy donut, Portland lobster co, petit Jacqueline's, black point inn, bayleys on the water. We enjoyed a canoe adventure and climbing on the rocks at the state park.

The apartment was wonderfully outfitted and very comfortable. Easily accessible and close to a lot of activities. Next time we will visit the beach not a lot of opportunity or weather this visit. We will be back! Thank you!

ps fresh eggs were a real treat!

Great location; no natural light

  • 4 of 5

Apt. was well-equipped, clean with ideal proximity to beach and Portland. Only complaint was the darkness; no natural light since covered by deck and in basement; musty odor but not

overwhelming. Owners were helpful and pleasant.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you at our home in Pine Point, and we're glad you enjoyed your time here. The apartment faces west into a large yard with many tall trees providing shade, which most people enjoy after a day in the sun on the beach . The two large windows in the living room / kitchen and the large window in the bedroom allow natural light into the apartment when you keep the curtains fully open. We hope to see you again in Maine!

Great Quiet Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The Apt. was great, Very clean and set up great. the outside covered patio was a great plus. the private backyard and fire pit was perfect. We had a ruff week due to a death in the family. It was very peaceful to be able to return to the rental and spend time together at such a nice place. THANK you for the Eggs. tell the chickens they did a great job. LOL

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.
