My husband, sister, two teenagers, and I stayed for 10 days in May. We loved it so much, we didn't want to leave.
The cottage is beautifully decorated, with views of Casco Bay, just a block from Willard Beach, within minutes of downtown Portland and Cape Elizabeth. You couldn't ask for a better location.
The property was very clean and you could tell that the owners really love and care for this place. The cottage had everything you could need, with a fully kitted out kitchen down to coffee, sugar, and a large selection of spices. Our host, Marilys, even baked a cake to welcome us.
The beds were comfortable, the linens plush and plentiful. We enjoyed sitting around the gas fireplace on chilly evenings. There was plenty of space for my two teenagers to spread out. There was a huge book full of recommendations of things to do and where to eat.
One highlight of our trip was "dog park hours" on Willard Beach. In the morning and evening for two hours, dogs are allowed off leash on the beach. The furry mayhem was a joy to watch. We wished we had brought our dog.
We stayed here for five days and thoroughly enjoyed our time at this place. Awesome house in a great neighborhood close to many restaurants and other activities. Marilys was very friendly and easy to work with. We all gave it a thumbs up. The beds were heavenly and the kitchen beautiful and very functional. Don't hesitate to stay. We made use of fireplace and the outdoor fire pit.
