The Mermaid House
The house & gardens are beautiful. It is a great location close to the beach.
We had a great stay in Biddeford Pool. The house was very comfortable with plenty of room and lots of gear for our family of five. One of the best beaches in Maine is less than a five minute walk away! And another rocky beach, great for exploring with kids, is less than a five minute walk also. The grounds of the property are beautiful and meticulously maintained. A great getaway!
Thank you for such a nice review, Patty. So glad you enjoyed the gear at the house -- and a great vacation!
We'd welcome you back in the future!

About Mark Dougherty
We wanted a convenient vacation home with all amenities for comfort & fun. We love to bike, play tennis, play with our kids, surf, kayak, garden, cook, and hang out at the beach. After 20+ years in the Northeast, Biddeford Pool always is our favorite place in New England!
Mark Dougherty purchased this House in 2005
Why Mark Dougherty chose Biddeford Pool
Biddeford Pool is a throw-back to family life of the 1950's plus all the wonderful nearby options of Portland, Kennebunport, and Old Orchard Beach amusement park. The sandy beach is the best in Southern Maine for long walks & body surfing . Tidal pools offer endless exploration for sea creatures. Kids love the freedom to rides bikes anywhere, especially the daily trip to the village store for ice cream!
What makes this House unique
Beautiful, easy bike rides to Goose Rocks & Cape Porpoise for breakfast or lunch. Kayak out to the Wood Island Lighthouse quite easily or explore the calm waters of the back Pool. Several public tennis courts & golf courses nearby, too.
