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

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!

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

Great home with lots of single beds which perfectly suited our needs. Owners were flexible and met our specific needs which made all the difference, would book again!

Great house, great location, nice owners, just dusty

  • 4 of 5

The house was a great place to stay on our trip "back home" to see my family. It was well-stocked, well-cared for, very cute and "Maine camp style" and overall really clean. We easily fit 12 people around the large round kitchen table for my mom's birthday and we easily had 16 people in the large living room and could have accommodated more (not including the kitchen, TV nook, or screened in porch). The beds were excellent and the mattresses and pillows were good and comfortable (and I have back problems so I'm picky- the beds are great). The kids appreciated the games and art supplies. Beth kept in contact with me and was very attentive and friendly.

Definitely get the HomeAway app- there is a lot more information for your stay in the app than in the website and it makes it a snap to communicate with the homeowners.

My only complaints are 1: the house could really use a new coffeemaker- I ended up borrowing my brother's- and 2: there is a lot of dust, not on the surfaces but in the walls, curtains, carpets, and ductwork. Our kids and many of our visitors had allergy and respiratory issues while in the house. I think we were one of the first (if not the actual first) to use it for the season and it was still early in the season (many of the next door houses were still boarded up) so it was often too cold to open the windows on some days, but a deep cleaning including carpets and ducts and maybe an air purifier would be a good idea. 3- the living room needs some overhead lighting, it was very dark in there after sunset and the lamps are pretty dim.

Overall great value, good house, and the perfect location and setup for a great family reunion on the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your reply, Jennifer. I'm sorry it was dusty, and I will make sure our next guests don't have the same concerns. Good point on the coffee maker. We'll be going out to get one asap. I appreciate your thoughtful response/review of your stay at our cottage.

Great Place with a Better Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house with a very nice location on Pine Point Beach. We comfortably slept 8 adults on our golf trip and the space was not cramped at all. The massive living room served as a great place for everyone to hangout in the evenings and the large round kitchen table was perfect for both meals and cards/games, even with a larger number. The house was in a quiet neighborhood so it was easy to relax yet the location is in convenient proximity to both Old Orchard and South Portland. Dan and Beth were extremely easy to work with and have a truly wonderful cottage. I would recommend it to a friend, and am already looking into going back next year.
