Perfect Home Base for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage served as home base for a wonderful family of 4 vacation (two boys aged 6 and 3, they loved the bunk beds). The short walk to Footbridge Beach made it possible to lug all of the beach chairs, boogie boards, snacks, toys, etc. without too much trouble. Rt. 1 is a stone's throw away. Diagonally across the street is the Beachfire restaurant, which made it easy for me to put our name in, have a drink at the bar or at the fire pit, and call my family when our table was ready. Very easy for our first day. Across the street from there are a couple of other good restaurants, as well as the trolley to take you into Ogunquit Center and down to Perkins Cove. Beach Plum Farm, a garden plot community, is open to the public, and is practically in the back yard. I enjoyed taking a walk there in the morning with a cup of coffee and having a look at all of the creative garden plots.

Not only is the location great, but the cottage itself was great too. Everything was nice and clean for our arrival. It was nice to have the kitchen and TV area upstairs, and the bedrooms downstairs. We had no problems while we were there, but the owners made sure that someone would be available if something came up. Checking in was easy, just use the door code given, and voila, you're in. No hassle. You can also bolt the doors from the inside in case you are concerned about others knowing the door code.

I would definitely stay here again, and hope to do so in the future.

Perfect Location for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our family. We have three kids and liked having space for them to play outside and inside. The Beach Plum Farm was an added bonus to have right out back. We walked through there a few times, beautiful gardens and views. Having Footbridge Beach so close was really important and it's just a quick 3-5 minute walk!! No busy traffic to deal with. There's a trolley stop right nearby. We loved our week in this cottage is was super clean and accommodating. We will absolutely be back!!

Good

  • 4 of 5

Location was great. Wished both bedrooms had doors and that the grill was usable. Other than those two things the place was very comfortable.

Adorable and cozy beach cottage getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay with a small family or a couple friends. Clean, cozy and comfy, the cottage has everything you need for a relaxing getaway to this small beach town. We frequently used the back patio which has a grill and very pleasant view of a nearby community garden, and a quiet beach is an easy 5 minute walk down the road. Ogunquit is a quick 5-10 minute drive away and has a number of great restaurants and shopping, as well as beautiful beachfront areas to walk, take boat rides and receive spa services. At night we enjoyed a bottle of wine on the patio or living room and a restful sleep in comfortable beds. A perfect getaway for someone seeking a truly relaxing and restorative time.

Cute Home. Great Location.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 1 wk at this cute home and overall enjoyed it very much because it met our needs. Water pressure in shower is very good; lots of windows for cross ventilation; it sleeps 7ppl which is a lot for such a small place but convenient if needed; having 3 parking spaces was also convenient; and the neighborhood is very nice.

Great location just outside of downtown Ogunquit and the short walk to Footbridge Beach saved us $25/day for parking! Footbridge Beach has very clean water, great waves, a restroom and small shack for food.

Another plus is that the owner, Laura, always replied to my emails very quickly.

I didn't find the beds or futon to be comfortable but others did. FYI ... The bedrooms are on the lower level, below ground, so the windows are at ground level and only one BR has AC. A few tweaks could make this home more inviting ... clean ceiling fan, replace toaster and clean grill (they're both very dirty), expand TV service (there are very few stations available), paint back steps (their a mess), replace screen in back door (it's ripped), provide a Welcome manual on how to setup futon, what to do with trash, who to contact in an emergency, etc.

My biggest disappointment was that it abuts a property (only a few feet from patio area) that is very run down and a bit creepy, especially at night. It also makes the back patio area uninviting to hangout.

We're grateful that the home worked for what we needed it for but I'm not sure that we'd rent it again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this thoughtful review. The property that abuts ours (which was vacant for some time) was purchased in July of 2016 by extremely caring and loving owners - we expect that it will be spic and span by 2017!

Beach Cottage True Story!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family decided to rent several houses in the Footbridge Beach neighborhood for one week in August (2016). My husband, two sons (6 + 8) and I stayed in this cottage and we loved it! The bedrooms being downstairs and the common area upstairs was a perfect division in the usable space. The description I found on HomeAway was accurate and everything was just as it should be. The proximity to two trolley stops and Footbridge Beach was perfect! The kitchen was just right for the type of vacation meals that we wanted to prepare. All interaction (emails only) with the owner were friendly and stress free. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family who are looking for a budget friendly beach vacation! Laura and Joe, thank you for sharing your beach home with us :)
