Wonderful location, cottage and owners

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 4 of my closest friends from high school and we had a very peaceful, relaxing stay. The proximity to the gorgeous beach was perfect. We walked the beach everyday we were there. The house was big enough for all of us to have our own beds. The kitchen table was our favorite gathering place. We enjoyed the living room and screened in porch as well. Beth was very available and helpful with any questions we had. We enjoyed the proximity to Portland and Freeport and there were plenty of restaurants to choose from locally and in these towns. The only minimal challenge we had was having only one indoor shower.

Great beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, roomy quaint cottage located in quick walking distance to an expansive clean beach, ideal for swimming, walking and sandbar/tide pool exploring. Restaurants and other amenities located in the immediate vicinity along Rt. 9/1 in Pine Point/Scarborough.

Very responsive landlord to deal with an issue that developed with cable TV.

We would be happy to back again next fall!

August 2017

  • 2 of 5

Pros: Owners are very attentive with questions and answers

They have a large supply of Beach chairs/toys/buckets etc and a convenient shed to store stuff.

The firepit is a nice feature

The front of the house and porch get a beautiful beach breeze daily. A great place to sit.

Very close to the beach

Cons: House is very dark with all the wood interior

Unless all the windows remain open there is a musty smell throughout the house.

Very small TV room

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes, the house is dark. It was built in the 60s and we have left the interior the same through the years. We too however are finding it dark and have considered painting the ceilings to brighten the rooms up, and adding ceiling lighting. That will likely be a project for this fall. As for the mustiness, It could be the salt marsh that, in low tide, brings a strong odor. Nevertheless, I will check into this to make sure there is not some wood rot going on. The TV room is small, and we have considered adding smaller TVs to each of the bedrooms. Again, another suggestion and consideration moving forward. Again, Shawn, thank you for staying at our cottage, and I appreciate your comments so that we can make the cottage as comfortable as possible for future guests. Beth and Dan Perry

Great house steps from the beach!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second trip to Scarborough for my girlfriends from college (now retired). The house has a perfect location for a relaxing few days at the beach. Super close to Portland for sightseeing and easy access to airport. Accommodations were nice, plenty of room for everyone. We spent almost all our time on the screened in porch or outside by the fire pit. Owners Beth and Dan were very helpful with any questions we had. Already missing Maine!

Amazing location and a wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay especially the incredible location just step from the beach. We had our 3 year old grandson with us and he loves the beach. Proximity was a must for knap time and getting snacks. He really loved the place as did we. Thanks

Enjoyed our stay at Pine Point Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Our kids loved the cottage and how closely the property is located to the beach. Only drawback was lack of heat for the cool nights and only one shower for the four bedrooms. Nice cottage!

Owner's Response: Richard, I'm sorry there was a misunderstanding about the heat, and if you'd have contacted us, we would have clarified that you could use the Rinnai propane heater in the kitchen which heats the entire cottage. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and that you were able to stay longer on Saturday afternoon and enjoy some extra time on the beach. You deserved a bit of sunshine after a chilly, rainy start to your vacation. Please consider us in your future travels to Maine. Beth and Dan Perry
