About Whitney

As longtime Boston residents, Scott and I purchased this home in Cape Elizabeth to use for our family of four as a nearby getaway, and to share with others as a vacation home. We have renovated and put our finishing touches on it, and we are happy to share our home with responsible, conscientious individuals and families.

I am originally from "the County," Aroostook County in northern Maine, and have always wanted to be able to spend time in Maine away from the hustle and bustle of our Boston lives. My Vermont-born husband lived two doors down for a couple of years after college, and has been in love with the unique neighborhood ever since.

-Whitney & Scott

Whitney purchased this house in 2015

Why Whitney chose Cape Elizabeth

You'll love waking up and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. One of my favorite things is waking up to the colors of the sunrise over the ocean from the master bedroom window in the morning. The yard is large enough for children to play, and you'll love the ocean views from the fire pit in the backyard. Sights and sounds of the ocean surround our special property.

What makes this house unique

Soon after we purchased this home, we discovered that our house had been painted in an Edward Hopper painting many years ago. A print of "Lighthouse Hill" hangs in our living room.

Lovely clean house

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a family reunion with our 3 children on Cape Elisabeth over Easter break. One of our sons attends a local college.

The house is nicely decorated and the kitchen is well stocked with all amenities. The house was very clean and well organised. Whitney was extremely responsive - before and during our stay ( allowed a late check out). Close to nearby parks, beaches and across the street from the lobster shack. We went into Portland for dinner and loved "Scales" restaurant.

Although it is a very small and quiet road - lots of traffic. Cars coming to park for the lobster shack and visit the beach area. Also, lots of trucks delivering in the early morning to the lobster shack. The house could benefit from additional barstools by the kitchen counter - as that is the best place to view the ocean while having your early morning coffee! Thank you again for a lovely stay.

Beautiful and Quaint with Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

We have come to Maine many times and have stayed in a variety of houses and hotels. This house was definitely one of the best. It’s decorated beautiful, yet is setup well for kids with hard floors which makes cleaning up sand from the beach easy. We have a family of 6 and there was plenty of room for all of us.

The bedrooms are large for the size of house and the beds are very comfortable. The master bedroom has a great view of the ocean. It was so relaxing waking up and looking out over the water.

The location is perfect. You can walk to the Lobster Shack for dinner and it’s just minutes from Kettle Cove, Crescent Beach and 15 minutes from downtown Portland.

The owners, Whitney and Scott are very nice and accommodating. They checked in every now and then to make sure our stay was going well and they bent over backwards to accommodate us coming in a day early.

I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for an oceanview getaway.

❤We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Columbus day weekend, 2017.

The house was perfect for two couples. One queen room on the lower level and a king room on the upper level. The other bedroom upstairs would be great if you are traveling with kids.

The location was ideal for our adventures. The Lobster Shack restaurant across the street was great. Especially the first night when we didn't feel like more driving! The Portland Headlight is super close and a great destination for lighthouse seeker's.

Close enough for pizza delivery too! 😁

I hesitated on the 5th star due to the non existent cell service at the house. #firstworldproblems.

Which maybe in hindsight was a GOOD thing. Internet service was great just no cell for voice calls home to check on the daughter. Of course there was a land line (remember those?) if I really needed it😍

Fantastic neighborhood for early morning walks after watching the sunrise on Maine's rocky coast, just steps from the house!

Beautiful peaceful area in a near picture perfect place

  • 5 of 5

It'd be difficult to summarize this home in such a way that does justice. Location isn't everything but goodness it is incredible. The home was quaint but updated well. Clean and comfortable and very accommodating for 4 adults and 2 children. It has a large back yard and views of the ocean from the back as well as several from interior of the house. It is what seemed like 7-9 miles from anything you could possibly want. Perfect place for me and my family to stay

Footsteps away from the neighboring lighthouse and beautiful view of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with my family at Two Lights Beach house. My kids loved the close proximity to Crescent beach and being just a few steps from the ocean across from our house was awesome! The views were breathtaking. The house was well maintained and nicely accommodated our family of six! The whole family truly enjoyed being together for this lovely vacation experience. We look forward to planning another visit, sooner than later. Many thanks!
