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!

Jennifer purchased this house in 2005

The Pool is a throw-back to family life of the 1950's plus all the wonderful nearby options of Portland, Kennebunport, and even Old Orchard Beach amusement park. The long sandy beach is the best in Southern Maine for long walks & body surfing . Tidal pools offer endless exploration for sea creatures. Our kids love the freedom to go anywhere on their bikes, especially the daily trip to the village store for ice cream!

Beautiful, easy bike rides to Goose Rocks & Cape Porpoise for breakfast or lunch. 'Gone with the Wind' rents top-notch kayaks & windsurfers in B Pool. 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.
