This is my second home -and I spend autumn, Holidays and spring there.

Its furnished and equipped for comfort and easy times.

A private garden amongst mature trees in a quiet neighborhood.

Wake to the sound and smell of surf, walk the beach and relax.

Stephen M Darling purchased this house in 2005

This is a special neighborhood -in a grove of 100year+ Oak trees -with year-round residents who care -and keep their homes up. Its not on the beach -but so much quieter -especially evenings and mornings -than those houses on or near the beach. I hear the surf when I go to bed, and smell the seabreezes at night -the best of all worlds. Eash access from Boston and Portland -and a young, fun imformal community.

Good quiet sleeping location. Peaceful sitting out on the verandah or in the garden in the evenings. Shade trees to keep the house cool during the hot summer days, while sunny bright surrounding area.

That's how to describe our stay at Somerset Cottage--comfortable and restful. It was great to be able to explore Maine's coastal region and return to the lovely well-appointed cottage.

Relaxing Family Getaway

What a beautiful and well maintained home. It was the perfect fit for our family. We spent time sitting out on the patio and it is a convenient walk to the ocean. Our children, aged 18 and 22, found plenty to do when they were not on the beach with a nearby mall, movie theatre, minigolfing, and the shops on the pier. Even made a day trip to Boston to see friends. We are already discussing the possibility of a return visit next summer. It was great that we were able to bring our small dog and not have to worry about her when we were away. Many places are not pet friendly, so it was wonderful to have that available to us. She slept comfortably in her kennel for any short family outings we made. Also, it was very nice to have such friendly and helpful caretaker/neighbors available to answer any questions we had. Definitely a week well spent.

This property is a beautifully maintained cottage in a great location. We and our children look forward all year to spending a week in Old Orchard Beach, and this is our third year in a row staying at 27 Somerset. What greater recommendation can one make?

Old Orchard Beach was settled in the mid 1600's and has been a preferred summer beach destination for people in the Northeast for over 200 years. It is one of the few remaining great Pier towns -which continues to provide entertainment summer evenings for the young and young at heart. There are countless activities and pleasant day trips -or just relax on the beach. The Maine Mall, Freeport and Kittery Outlets, Old Port Habor, Sebago Lake, are just a few of the outings.
