About Marc Johnson

We have been summering in Biddeford Pool for 15 years and recently purchased this adorable cottage. It is recently refurnished and has a new bathroom on the second floor.

Marc Johnson purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Marc Johnson chose Biddeford Pool

The cottage is in a quiet, non-commercial part of town. It is situated one side yard back from the ocean and has lovely open views across the neighbor's gardens. Just 200 yards from a two mile long sandy beach - one of southern Maine's most beautiful beaches. Short walk to Audubon trails. Short bike ride to village of Biddeford Pool with a General Store serving lobster rolls, take-out dinners, groceries and ice cream.

What makes this cottage unique

Perfect for a young family that is looking for a relaxing get away. Thought to be the former residence of the first Keeper of the historic US Coast Guard Station next door.

Beautiful Location - Perfect Place to Relax

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. The most wonderful feature of the cottage is the front porch which has a view of the ocean across a grassy yard with beautiful flowers and is an outstanding place for morning coffee or afternoon cocktails. It has great big windows which open to let in the breeze. It was a very peaceful with an excellent master bedroom on the first floor, an extremely efficient, if compact, downstairs bathroom and a generous and very comfortable living/dining room. The kitchen is tight for more than one person and could benefit from improved lighting. Probably the only significant drawback is the staircase, which is challenging for even moderately tall people. It was clear that the owners really care about the cottage, have kept it up nicely and have furnished it with good quality comfortable furniture and a lot of care. The area is beautiful and quaint. Since we were there in October, a lot of local places were closed, so we branched out to Kennebunkport and downtown Biddeford to find shopping and restaurants for the most part. The acid test is: would I go back? The answer is:without a doubt!

A wonderful small cottage with an ocean view

  • 4 of 5

The place was almost perfect. The kitchen is pretty outdated and dark. The porch (outside could stand to be a little larger. 4 people with a snack tray would find it hard to get around.

The glass three season porch was wonderful and room to 10 or 12 easily (big plus!)

Updated windows were great! Beds comfortable. The cottage was not as clean as I would like when checked in. Cleaning gear left out, piles of dirt not picked up, wet rugs in the washer...but that is a cleaning service issue. Owner VERY responsive. Recommend the lockbox be placed in a location with better lighting. Numbers very hard to read on the lockbox.

Would definitely go back and recommend this to my friends.
