Overview

About the property

Beach cottage at end of quiet street offers a peaceful beach getaway.

At the end of a quiet lane, just steps from the beach, our cottage is close to all this amazing neighborhood has to offer, yet secluded enough to provide the perfect spot for a quiet vacation. Our home is family friendly and we will consider pets.

This sun filled cottage offers 2 1/2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a front and back deck, a grill and a large yard.

Spend the day at the beach, get goodies at Scratch, dessert at Scoops Ice Cream. Stroll to local restaurants for dinner: David's, Joes Boat House, Salt Water Grill, Elsemere BBQ, Thai Taste, Enios, walk the quaint neighborhood streets and come back to the Myrtle Lane cottage for the rest of the evening.

About Stephanie Cooke

Our family has lived in the Willard neighborhood for ten years. We love this place! It is a family friendly, walk-able, quaint and a welcoming place that is a treat to live in.

Stephanie Cooke purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Stephanie Cooke chose South Portland

We find the Myrtle Lane Cottage so special because of the location. It is so quiet! Being at the end of a tiny dead-end street 200 yards from the beach-- it is a perfect vacation spot.

Charming and clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay with friends at this cute and well-maintained cottage. The beach is just steps away, and it is a quick drive (or uber/taxi ride) to downtown Portland. I would definitely recommend this place and would come back anytime. Thanks!

Very nice cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and had a great time. The cottage is literally a block from the beach. It is also convenient to all of the Portland attractions. I highly recommend this place.

Wonderful location, fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal vacation spot for us: a quick walk to a beautiful, quiet beach with only a short drive to Portland, lighthouses and other attractions, with Scratch Bakery and ice cream close by as well. The cottage was sunny, bright and clean, and very relaxing. We slept with the windows open every night to enjoy the clean, refreshing ocean air. We felt right at home. Stephanie met us when we arrived and made sure we had reliable contact information should we need to reach her at any time. This was a perfect for us, and we are looking forward to our next visit! Thanks so much!

Historic cottage with New England charm

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Myrtle Cottage. It was the perfect size for our family of four.

The location to the beach was perfect. We enjoyed the beach on the 4th and saw the fireworks from the near by college.

We had everything we needed for our stay. We hosted our family for a BBQ and really appreciated the gas grill.

South Portland was perfect. We went to Scratch bakery often and got Pizza from Di Petrios. We loved the location.

Thanks Stephaine for coming over to meet us personally. Best vacation ever.

Our cottage is nestled in the lively Willard Beach neighborhood, steps away from Willard Beach and a five minute walk to Willard Square, home of the yummy Scratch Bakery and Scoops Ice Cream.

People come to our community to enjoy the quiet beach and all our neighborhood has to offer as well as the short drive or bike ride across the bridge into downtown portland for the museums, restaurants and cafes.

This is a very family and dog friendly community.
