The cottage also is located near 2 local convenience stores which features your basic groceries needs or your middle of the night craving for ice cream! A newly built deck for your family enjoyment . New stainless steel appliances ( fridge and stove) have been replaced. This fabulous cottage has been extensively renovated 2 years ago and has been maintained on a yearly basis. . You have everything your family need for comfortable vacationing.

Why Lana H chose Old Orchard Beach
Quiet, comfortable and homey cottage. Far enough from the action to get a good night sleep yet so close to walk!

Very nice little cottage, all the comforts of home
We had a very nice 4 day get away and will definetly recommend this location to family and friends and when we return to Maine for vacation I will look to Lana to book this cottage again.
Thank you Ruth for your review. We look forward to seeing you in the near future.
Very nice cabin. Great location except the train tracks 1/2 block away.
Very nice accommodations
Two girlfriends and I stayed in this cute cottage for three nights. We were delighted at the location and had a wonderful experience during peak leaf-peeping season. It was our first time in Maine for all three of us, and we truly enjoyed Portland and the surrounding areas. Thank you Lana for letting us get together and enjoy your cottage for our brief reunion.
Thank you JM for your review.
It is so nice that you were all able to meet for a reunion. So magical :)
Thank you for making the cottage a part of that.
Here's to many more happy and healthy reunions to come.
Clean, cozy, well equipped, close to the beach
The cottage was clean and well equipped - including beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. There is also a washer/dryer in the bathroom. Lana is very sweet and is quick to get back to you with any question or concerns. Nice deck and patio set at the back of the house, great bed in the main bedroom, great shower and plenty of towels. We forgot our shampoo at our first stop and were even able to find some in the cabinet.
Everything you could need in the kitchen, and enough room for kicking back at the end of the day. Just know that you will be walking down a short block to get to the beach. Not a big deal but this property is not ON the beach. You are only a few blocks from OOB, and even in the off season there were a few shops and eateries open. Close to US 1 and several biking trails. It was a great, relaxing stay. Thank you Lana!
Thank you Barbara for your review. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you in the near future! Thank you .
Fantastic all around ...
We stayed only a few days but felt so relaxed — it felt like weeks. Well-equipped kitchen, plenty of towels, bed and bedding situation was perfect. It was extremely easy to communicate with the owner Lana — quick responses, and all logistics went super smoothly. It was great to have our "own little house," complete with private parking. Truly stress free! The beach around the corner was post card gorgeous. Loved it. Highly recommended.
Thank you for your review Dave. We look forward it seeing you in the near future.
Close to Pier! Steps away to beach!
We (4 adults and an 18 month old) stayed at Lana's cottage for Labor Day weekend and overall it was great!! We're on vacation so that should be enough not to complain about things. Since I read reviews and a lot of times make decisions based on the reviews, I want to provide a fair one. Lana was very accommodating and when asked about early check in she was willing to allow it even though we did not end up needing it. There is plenty of room for 3 cars to park. Upon entering the home it was very welcoming, I took off my shoes immediately and realized there was still sand all over the floor, I'm sure it was quickly swept but needed a better job-possibly vacuum. No biggie I just swept the floors to the entire cottage. The light bulb in the bathroom blew and Lana did tell me where she had extras in the house but we couldn't find them so we just improvised with a lamp and flashlight. Speaking of bathroom- what really got me was the fact that there really isn't a shower head, so water goes everywhere. It's one thing to give my 18 month old a shower instead of bath but when there is no shower-head it made it very difficult and again had to improvise with a bowl and cup. At one point I was tempted to buy one to put on. Rooms: spacious enough that I was able to set up a Lotus (aka pack and play) & we were in the smaller of the 2 rooms so one could definitely fit in the other room. Also, there are no closets or dressers which is odd & unexpected so we lived at of our bags for a few days, which is fine, if I would have known I would have packed differently. We loved the openness of the common area, we could all eat and hang out together. We turned the TV on once and could only get a couple of channels so we turned it off because we didn't go to OOB to watch TV. We didn't have good cell service while in the house, not sure if it's in a dead-zone or our providers, there is also no wifi but Lana did say she is working on getting it for next season, either way it was fine because we had enough service to communicate with family and google things. We didn't use the backyard at all as it is open with the neighboring house, and we weren't welcomed very nicely by the lady next door because of how we parked (she could have approached it differently and it would've been fine) The house is a quick walk away to the pier and a 3 min walk to beach if that. Lana was a great host and very responsive! We hope to stay again next year!
Thanks Angie for your review.
The shower head that was in the shower was recommended to us as being efficient and “green” thus we chose it. Nevertheless, to accommodate future guests I went by today and changed that to a bigger shower head with a hand held one.
The direct tv channels is a Family package that has 61 channels , 7 local channels and 3 Spanish channels.
To put dressers in the BR would make the room smaller and was worried that moving around in each BR would be harder.
I apologize for the floors having sand. There should never be any. I did contact the cleaning crew and voice my concerns. My regular cleaning person was out on an emergency surgery and I had to get another at the last minute.
The neighbor you should mentioned it to me. They really don’t have any parking space up front and for her to say anything to you is not appropriate. All the houses in OOB are really next to each other. I thought about putting a gate up many years ago, and if I would have done that , that neighbor would not be able to access her front door. So I regress.
The contract did specify no WiFi .
We are looking to get WiFi for the 2019 season.
We value all reviews and that is how we make better accommodations for our future guest.
We hope to hear from you in the near future.
Thank you Angie!
