The panoramic view from the spacious deck of this classic and authentic New England cottage is unlike any on the coast of Maine. From your bed, you can watch the sun rise over Wood Island and the lobstermen heading out to haul their traps. During the day, you can swim in our cove, kayak over to the old lighthouse, walk or run on the 2 mile sandy beach or bike around the charming, quintessential Maine village of Biddeford Pool. At night, enjoy a lobster feast in our large backyard and watch the fireworks across the bay in Old Orchard Beach. The great restaurants and museums of Portland are only 30 minutes away.
Our six bedroom, third generation family home comfortably sleeps 8-10. The first floor has two bedrooms (one full, one king) that share a bathroom, and four (3 queens, 1 single) on the second floor with two full baths available. The downstairs has a modest but well-equipped kitchen, pantry, dining room, living room, study, half bathroom, and laundry area. We have a flat screen, smart tv, cable and wifi.
We also have 4 bikes, 2 kayaks (with lifejackets), high quality sheets and bath towels, beach towels, beach chairs, books, puzzles and games, gas grill, wood burning fireplace and a new, private outdoor shower!
It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your family as you embrace the simple joys of life.
As it is a beautiful venue, we have had several weddings (including both of our daughters') during the off-season months of June and September. In addition to the spacious front yard, we also have a large barn which can seat 80 for dinner or be used for an after-party. In addition to the rental of the house (for use by the immediate family) there is an additional fee for the barn and yard. If you are interested, please inquire.
NB: The house is not winterized. The water is turned off from mid-October to mid-May.
