We had a great long fall weekend. The weather was perfect and we had the beach to ourselves. Really enjoyed the comfort of the cottage and loved being right on the beach. Very relaxing and would love to go back next fall.

Laura's beach house is an amazing place! First off it is adorable from the outside with classic wood shingles and lovely vines growing around the door. Then you realize how close you are to the beach. On the inside it is so comfy and decorated perfectly with antique pieces to match the overly fine period doors and mill work. Laura goes out of her way to fill the space with every imenity you could possibly need and then some. When we arrived from our long drive we had loads of goodies waiting for us and it immediately felt like home. The beach really is right there, just over the dune. It is so quiet and protected from the big waves. We spent a whole day just relaxing and getting some sun. At night we would make the quick drive up to Portland and go out for dinner. Then we would wake up in our beautiful antique post bed to the sounds of waves gently crashing on the beach. This place is truly a gem, we would come back anytime.

We loved the place! I picked this place for my Wife and I's honeymoon and couldn't have found a better place to stay. Laura was a great great host and loved all the little detail to the place. It was very private and loved how close it was to the ocean and the deck she had to sit out on. Her place is far enough out that it is a quite comfy place, and yet it close enough to check out other destination near the area. Her place is only about 20 minutes south of Portland which we went and visited for a day to go lobster catching. That was a blast!

Great location. Like having your own private beach. Simple but having everything you could want. Like stepping back in time and leaving you exactly what you need rest, relaxation and rejuvenated !! Plus close to OOB and plenty of activities. Highly recommend.
