Experience the simple delights of this Old Orchard Beach cottage, a cozy and comfortable two-bedroom getaway with a sun-splashed patio, a gas grill, and easy walking access to the town's legendary beach.
This single-level, standalone cottage is located in a small condo complex called The Beachwalk, which sits only one block from the sand and surf of Old Orchard Beach. Vacationing families and couples will be just one mile north of the Old Orchard Pier, Palace Playland, and a variety of shops and restaurants in the center of town, and 16 miles south of downtown Portland.
Come home from a day on the beach to find the first of two small living spaces, where you can recline on the red sectional sofa, choose a book or a board game to keep you company, and bask in the sunlight that streams through the windows.
Whip up a few snacks, appetizers, and cold, refreshing drinks in the full kitchen, which offers traditional wood cabinetry and standard appliances to make mealtime easy and fun. Sit down for dinner at the four-person dining table, or linger outside on the patio to enjoy a feast of local haddock on the gas grill.
Spend your mornings reading the newspaper on the patio, exploring the nearby bike path, or catching the sunrise out on Old Orchard Beach (two chairs are even provided for the occasion). You even have free Wifi, as well as the comforts of a flatscreen TV and a DVD player in the second living room.
With two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, The Perch at Beachwalk will accommodate four guests. The master suite has a queen-size bed, a sliding glass door that opens to the patio, and a private bathroom with a stall shower. The second bedroom (which you must walk through to reach the master) features a pair of twin beds, and the second bathroom offers a tub/shower combination.
An epicenter of family fun since the 19th-century, Old Orchard Beach has long been a magnet for summer vacationers and beach-goers in Maine. Spend your days swimming in the cool waters of Saco Bay, taking walks on the seven-mile beach, and enjoying a few salty snacks and arcade games on the Old Orchard Pier.
Make yourself a tee time at the Dunegrass Golf Club just three miles west, or spend a morning on the pristine sand of Ferry Beach State Park between the Saco River and Pine Point four miles south. Each evening, you can walk into the heart of town to choose from a variety of restaurants, hop on a few carnival rides at Palace Playland, or catch the summer fireworks that light up the pier each Thursday.
