beautifull week

  • 3 of 5

I have rented different places in the past years and this is certainly the best view I have ever had, you can't get any closer the sea; love the beach , you can access ferry beach or by the wall or at low tide by the beach and this is the longest beach in Maine it is wonderful; the only drawback is the proximity and traffic mainly on week ends, since the cottage is in the loop only way in and out to Huot's and the marina so not as quiet as we would have liked at supper time on the deck, but during the week we had supper out on the deck and the traffic was very reasonable; Huot's had just opened and the motorcycles were out for the first really warm weekend, maybe it is not as busy later in the summer; I have to add that we are from the country and are not used to traffic, I see maybe ten cars a day when my neighbors go to work and come back in the evening, I know each car that goes by my house. The second bedroom is very small and you access through the bathroom or the maine bedroom; the maine bedroom is comfortable,we had beautifull weather. thank you.

The house worked well for the 3 of us. Wished the weather was better & more eateries were open.

  • 4 of 5

The house had everything we needed. Traffic heavy on the weekends. Easy walk to the beach. Nice to have a washer & dryer. Many establishments do not take American Express.

Sunrises, Sunsets and the whole ocean to watch!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a terrific time at this squeaky clean, well-equipped, beautifully situated cottage. Beds were comfy, kitchen had everything, eating breakfast overlooking the beach was delightful, and the waves were wonderful to hear. House is furnished simply, everything is sturdy and we even rode out the huge October 2017 storm that cut power to most of the northeast seaboard. Our power was only out for 12 hours! Thank you, Robert, for letting us share your beach retreat.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property with great view of the water. We would recommend a trip to Kennebunkport , lots of shopping and beautiful views. Portland is also close with great restaurants and shopping. Having to bring towels and sheets was a bit of an inconvenience, but otherwise the house had everything we needed. Robert was great to work with. Always quick with answers to my emails.
