Overview

About the property

Big, beautiful 4 bedroom house, 1/4 mile from beach.

Classic four bedroom beach house, conveniently located one quarter mile from downtown Old Orchard Beach and one quarter mile from beach, playground, amusement park, and the ball park. This house is located on a dead end street, in a quiet family-oriented neighborhood. This spacious and beautiful home was an inn welcoming beachgoers in the 1950s, and it retains that warm home feeling. This home is a 5 minute walk from the beach, close enough to smell the ocean and listen to the waves crashing on the beach, yet far enough from the hustle and bustle to relax at the end of a busy beach day!

About Ron Darling

My name is Ron Darling. I was born and raised in a fishing family in South Portland, Maine. Moved to Old Orchard Beach in 1985, and raised my children here. I work as a building contractor, and I own three rental homes in Old Orchard Beach.

Ron Darling purchased this house in 1995

Why Ron Darling chose Old Orchard Beach

This classic Old Orchard Beach home was an inn welcoming beachgoers in the 1950s. I bought the house from my neighbors in 1995. They had owned the house for 4 generations. I did a complete renovation of the upstairs.

What makes this house unique

Great location. Dead-end street (no traffic). Close to everything! Beach, amusement parks, shopping, etc.

Great close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Basically a straight shot to the beach, plus a convenience store that is a 5 minute walk away. My only issue is that there is only 1 bathroom.

Such a great house with excellent hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Magnificent house with 4 bedrooms that suited our family get together. It's very well situated ; you can get to the beach and downtown by walk and it's on a dead end street with no traffic, so very quiet! The communication with the hosts was easy and they were there to meet us on arrival to explain everything about the house as well about OOB. I would go back!
