Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Sweet, cozy three-season cottage located on family-friendly Wildwood Avenue, steps from pristine, white sandy Goose Rocks Beach. Located in the highly desirable Tides Beach Club neighborhood.

Start your morning with coffee & a good book on the Aderondeck chairs out front, and after a relaxing day on the beach, you can retreat to the backyard for a cookout overlooking the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge, or head into town for dinner and a stroll, ice cream in hand. The Goose Rocks area is a family-oriented neighborhood with quiet streets for bike riding. This cottage feels bright and airy; if you are searching for the simplicity of days gone by, this cottage will make you feel like you have stepped back into that simpler pace of life. This is a place where memories will be made.

Short walk to both the General Store and the GRBA Community House, which offers family activities, basketball, arts-crafts, and tennis.

Perfect summer cottage by the beach

  • 5 of 5

The little yellow cottage, a 5 minute walk to the 2 mile sandy Goose Rocks Beach was a perfect getaway for my husband, teenage girls and me. The cottage had everything we needed to decompress and reconnect for a week in the sun. Twice we brought cooked lobsters back to the house from Wolff's Lobster Pound (5 minute drive). Goose Rocks Beach is one of the finest beaches in Maine. Due to its limited parking, it is very uncrowded and is exceptional large at low tide. Though the cottage had wifi, we spent most nights playing cards or strolling the beach at sunset. The Adirondack chairs, ceiling fans and outdoor shower added to this charming beach getaway.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Our family has been renting homes in GRB since 2005. This home is very quaint, clean, nicely decorated and in a great location. Only drawback is that there is no inside upright shower just a beautiful claw tub that you can only sit in with a shower attachment. There is an outdoor shower but an indoor shower you can stand in is key with a family of 5 with 3 teenagers. Other than that the owner is wonderful and responds to emails very quickly. GRB is heaven on earth! Can't wait to go back!

Wonderful Getaway!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lovely cottage. Such a close walk to the beach, but off the main road. We truly enjoyed the beachy vacation feel of the ambiance, as well as the simple living that a cozy cottage provides. We filled our days with beach treks, playing games, exploring the surrounding attractions, as well as many walks around the most friendly of neighborhoods. Thank you so much Stacy & Kelvin, for allowing us to share in your wonderful beach escape. We look forward to many more years relaxing at Goose Rocks Beach!
