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 on our private beach, kayak over to the old lighthouse, 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. (All mattresses and bedding are new within the last 3 years.) 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 more.
It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your family as you embrace the simple joys of life.
* We also have a large barn on the property which can be made available for special events at an additional cost.
NB: The house is not winterized. The water is turned off from mid-October to mid-May.
