Sunrise over Pine Point Beach.  This photo is from a place a two minute walk from the cottage.Sunrise Cottage, named because it is on the sunrise side of the property.  It sounded better to us than "Unit 3".  But there is a three on left of the door.  It is on the right side as you drive onto the property.

We had a wonderful weekend staying in Sunrise Cottage. Comfortable and homey, it was the perfect place to stay while visiting family in the area. The backyard overlooking the marsh was also peaceful and fun for bird watching. The easy walk to an uncrowded beach was also great. Th…

Thank you, Mitch, for your kind welcoming and your uncomplicated and very quick communication. We enjoyed staying in Scarborough a lot! Your place is in a very good place near the marsh and the beach, it is - what we would say- very quiet! And to be so near to the beach was just …

Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate you highlighting our positives. Some notes: We are grateful for our paying guests, whose contributions help us do necessary maintenance and upgrades. This house was built in 1912, we believe the cottages were built after World War II, and my family bought it in 1985, and I lived here during college, and I purchased it in 2016 from my mother so she could retire. It is a labor of love and patience, it requires a great deal of effort to keep it going so we can share it with our guests. Our goal is to offer our cottages, apartment, and rooms at an affordable, reasonable, and fair price. We do not make a profit off of the rentals, and all of the funds go right back into the property for expenses, maintenance, and improvements to the property. Our priorities, in order, for spending the limited funds we have are: 1) Safety 2) Cleanliness 3) Comfort 4) Energy Efficiency 5) Happiness In the happiness category, things like newer and matching furniture will appear. We do continue to update and change out furniture, but if it meets the first three categories, Yankee sensibilities make it a low priority for replacement. If those things are a guest's priority, we recommend they stay in a hotel. If guests want an authentic traditional Maine Seaside cottage experience, we feel we provide that. We did just upgrade the bathroom in the other cottage, a $13000 upgrade and repair, which will put us in the red for the year, including upgrading to a tub/shower, from the shower stall, and replaced the toilets in both cottages with water efficient units. The other cottage has an on demand hot water system, so guests will not run out of hot water if several use the shower. It is also more cost efficient. At $2250 for upgrading the electric water heater with the on demand propane water heater, it takes us quite a few guests to pay for these upgrades. Our water pressure is determined by the city water supply, and sometimes when several people are using it simultaneously, there can be brief drops in pressure. I am not sure what the problem was with the windows, I wish you would have asked while you were here, I checked them all, these are double pane vinyl replacement windows, and modern. There is only one that has an issue, and it is the one the air conditioner is installed in. Sometimes they can stick though, with the dust and humidity.

Very friendly, welcoming, and responsive, host! Great location! Having your own cottage is so much more private and peaceful than a hotel room. Adorable place with all the basic amenities (very nice to have full kitchen and a living room!) We would definitely stay again in th…

The cottage was very clean. The bedrooms and living space were clean, but a bit smaller than anticipated. The bathroom is very tight and if you are a larger person, the shower will be very tight. The hosts are very lovely. They were friendly, and eager to make our stay exceptio…

Thank you Karen for your kind words. We continue to make improvements to rhe property! We list the square footage in the description, and have lots of pictures, not sure how else to let people know. These are larger than most cottage offerings in the area, but they are in the cozy category. We do want people to know what we have and meet their expectations, it is one of the reasons between last year and this year we listed the units for fewer people. It is a 32” shower enclosure, true, it is not spacious, but at 6’ and 280# I have no difficulty using it. Guests who want a tub/shower should consider renting a room in the house, or in Sunset Cottage, where we are installing a tub/shower.

Had a great time staying here for my cousin’s college graduation from MECA. The cottage was VERY close to both Portland and OOB, very convenient. Plenty of space for just my husband and I. Very clean. Very comfortable bed. Easy check in. Great communication.
