Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Just steps across the street and down a short path will bring you to a 7 mile stretch of clean, uncrowded, uninterrupted and groomed white sand beach. Come sink your toes into the warm sand of Pine Point Beach and run head on into the cool surf. From the quiet relaxation of Pine Point to the tourist-friendly town of Old Orchard Beach with its famous pier and Palace Playland (2 miles away) to Portland -- Maine's largest city less than 15 miles away, you’ll have everything you need for a memorable vacation at our cozy cottage.

Our cottage is one of six cottages located in our private condo association, featuring a small living room with a full couch, side chair, coffee table, two folding chairs, and a bench which converts into a table for four (tilt-top table). A flat screen tv mounted above the gas fireplace is complete with basic cable, blue ray DVD, and free WiFi. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge, stove, dinnerware, glasses, silverware, utensils, pots and pans, blender, toaster, coffee maker, and microwave. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the 2nd bedroom has two twin beds. Linens and towels are provided. New windows in 2015, new shower stall and gas fireplace in 2016, new flooring in 2018.

Outside on our semi-private lawn, we have a gas grill and patio furniture with seating for four. Enjoy a delicious BBQ followed by an evening stroll along the beach while watching the Old Orchard Beach fireworks every Thursday night. We provide a beach cart and gear (chairs, umbrella, pails and shovels, boogie boards) for your convenience and enjoyment.

Our location is within easy walking distance to many local eating establishments including Bayley's Seafood, The Clambake, Garage BBQ, The Bait Shed, Salty Bay, and Rising Tide. It's also convenient to Scarborough Marsh where guided nature walks, canoe tours, and walking / biking trails are offered. Take the local trolley to OOB or you can take the Amtrak Downeaster to Boston or north to Brunswick including multiple stops in between (Freeport and L.L. Bean). Local shopping malls are also nearby. Less than 15 miles north is Portland - named the 2018 Restaurant City of the Year by Bon Appetit - with hundreds of restaurants, an ever-growing number of microbrew pubs and tasting rooms, wine bars, a full array of shops, art galleries and more. Book your perfect vacation now!

About Terry Judkins

Terry has been a regular at Pine Point for over 30 years and finally convinced Bob to dip his feet into the refreshing, cool ocean water at Pine Point. Terry grew up in Maine; Bob in New York. Terry loves the peacefulness and small town feel of Pine Point; Bob prefers the fast-paced, action packed feel of Portland. There was an obvious compromise on the purchase of this piece of property!

Terry Judkins purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Terry Judkins chose Pine Point

Just steps to the beach and Pine Point's convenient location to Portland. The best of both worlds.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun staying at Tuckernuck, we plan to rent again next year! This cottage is cozy and nestled in a cluster of cottages. Access to the beach is an easy walk from the cottage so going to and from without getting in a car is ideal! In the evening you can also walk around the block and fine numerous restaurants for dining. Such a charming atmosphere!

Cozy little Beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Tuckernuck was a great little beach cottage. It was clean and well equipped in a great section of Scarborough called Pine Point. Its a two minute walk to the beautiful beach. The cottage is equipped with everything you need for the beach including a cart to get things there and a cooler and a umbrella. My husband and I stayed with two of our adult children and were cozy but very comfortable.

Our favorite place to eat was "The Bait Shed" which served amazing lobster and seafood right on the water. Eat early though or you will wait and it only has outside seating.

I highly recommend the Tuckernuck cottage for your Maine/beach getaway.

The cottage was very inviting and SO comfortable inside.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot to escape to for relaxation, fun and refreshment. We stayed for 3 nights after a busy and difficult school year (we are sisters and we both teach). Terry welcomed us and made us feel right at home. The 2 bedroom cottage was perfect for us! We sat and laughed and enjoyed stories together. We opened the windows and enjoyed smelling the ocean air ~ ahhhhhh. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need ~ and the coffee pot was ready to go! The shower was great and the pretty yellow bathroom and fresh towels was awesome in the mornings. Everything was just perfect and the beach is so close ~ we loved it!! We sat on the beach and walked and enjoyed the water. We drove down to the Pier in Old Orchard Beach and enjoyed the warm weather at night and the sounds and sights of the Pier (and french fries of course!). Terry is a wonderful hostess and you can't go wrong if you stay at her sweet "Tuckernuck". Thank you Terry ~ we'll be back. Mary & Kathie :) :)

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Our recent visit to Pine Point was brilliant and much of that was due to the fantastic accommodation and service provided. Terry greeted us personally to help us settle in and give us advice on the local area. The cottage is comfortable, cosy and brilliantly located. There is one seafood shack less than a minutes walk and a few other options within 5 minutes. The beach is endless and is again on the doorstep and the beach trolley provided makes getting there easy. Our boys (2 and 4) loved their bedroom and had plenty of space in the garden to run around and play with the gifts so generously left by Terry.

I would certainly recommend the pine point area and particularly this property.

Cute cottage on a quiet little street by the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Mom/daughter week at Tucknernuck was great! (The weather was horrible ... can't blame anyone for that though!) The cottage is so well kept and stocked with the essentials that we immediately felt comfortable. Comfy beds, nice hot shower and all the amenities of home. It is actually a bit cleaner than my own home!! Easy parking - walk to the beach - good restaurants and shopping close by - we would happily go back again!
