I grew up in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, two towns over from OOB. Graduated from CEHS 1974. Live in Connecticut now, but still love the whole Portland area and the ocean especially. Salt air is good for the soul.
There's just something about this house. Warm, cozy, it just says 'relax.' The porch is great -- always a breeze. As a musician, for me the term 'adagio' perfectly decribes this place: in a leisurely manner.
Lots of interesting built-ins. Corner lot provides plenty of parking.
Consensus best beach in Maine, 7 miles of white sand. Loads of things to do and see.
20 minutes from Portland -- spend one day in the Old Port district! Great shopping, restaurants and waterfront cobblestone streets. Portland Sea Dogs (Red Sox AA minor league).
30 minutes to Cape Elizabeth -- scenic Portland Head Light, the most painted and photographed lighthouse in USA, at Fort Williams and Two Lights and Crescent Beach State Parks.
45 minutes to Freeport-- home of LLBean.
Other Activities: miniature golf (Pirate's Cove), kayaking, harness racing (Scarborough Downs). Seaside Pavillion (summer concert venue operated by Salvation Army -- they book great events!)
Baseball: Rookie League plays at The Ballpark in OOB, Portland Sea Dogs (Red Sox AA affiliate).
Golf: Dunegrass Country Club (public) is better than average, 5 minute ride. Biddeford/Saco Country Club (semi-private) is challenging (state high school championship course) and 10 minutes away. Dutch Elm Country Club in Arundel is about 20 minutes and a little easier course.
