This quintessential year-round Maine cottage is fully-renovated and is surrounded by stunningly beautiful English gardens and stone patios, with the patios and most rooms in the house enjoying lovely ocean views of the Portland shipping channel and the islands of Casco Bay.

This home is located in the very popular Willard Beach area of South Portland, and is also situated just 3 blocks from beautiful Cape Elizabeth, with easy access to even more beaches and coastal scenery.

The friendliness and walkability of our neighborhood and the easy access to Willard Beach has made this destination the most popular vacation destination in the entire Greater Portland area, as well as the "hottest" neighborhood to reside in. Within a short walking distance of our cottage, you will find Willard Square, home to Scratch Bakery, featured in the New York Times, Bon Appetit, and the Food Network and ranked in the "Top 10 Bread Bakeries in the United States". Across the street from Scratch Baking is Willard Scoops Ice Cream Shoppe (but ice cream around) and Flip Creperie. Local residents and my guests make daily visits to Scratch for their famous handmade sourdough bagels and delectable breakfast pastries, coffee bar, their huge array of desserts (all cakes and pastries sold by the piece), award-winning breads, sandwiches, salads, soups, pizza, wines and so much more.

Also within a short walking distance from the cottage are several other ice cream shops, another fantastic bakery, and some very good restaurants, including the locally-owned but nationally recognized Otto's Pizza, also featured on the Food Network and the winner of the national "Best Pizza out of the Box" award.

This home is beautifully furnished and luxuriously appointed with high-end designer furnishings, high-quality new mattresses, three flat screen TVs and high-end bed linens and designer bedding. There is a mini split/heat pump on the first floor for air conditioning the entire first floor. Bedrooms have window a/c units.

The bedrooms sleep 7 guests on high-quality mattresses. The house features two master bedrooms, both featuring fantastic Beauty Rest mattresses, Samsung flat screen TVs, ceiling fans, window a/cs and beautiful ocean views. Both are outfitted with 100% Egyptian Cotton percale sheets and custom-designed bed linens. The third bedroom features a double bed and a twin bed, both with brand new mattresses and outfitted in high-end nautical bedding ensembles from Restoration Hardware. This bedroom has a ceiling fan and a window A/C.

The sunny living room with ocean views features a nautical-themed combination of creamy-white furniture, dressed with a beautiful array of navy and cream throw pillows, a unique designer coffee table made of a French antique basket on casters, a 40" samsung flatscreen and a Bose sound system.

Adjacent and open to the living room is the sun room, with beautiful views of the ocean and the islands so close to the cottage. This room has a small dining table with two chairs from Maine Cottage and doubles as a delightful breakfast nook.

The dining room features a gorgeous 92" long dining table made of reclaimed wood from Restoration Hardware with a rusted metal base and a reclaimed wooden top. Comfortable Pottery Barn chairs with cushions and throw pillows make for long and memorable dinners with family and friends.

The gourmet kitchen features a new SS Bosch gas range and dishwasher and is very generously appointed with service for 18 dining and silverware service and service for 18 glassware, in addition to an abundance of new pots and pans, bakeware, casserole dishes and every small appliance you would expect in a generously appointed kitchen. A large stainless steel gas grill is just outside the kitchen on it's own small stone patio in the back yard.

The stunningly beautiful English gardens and patios on this property are absolutely incredible and offer a delightful scent of flowers combined with the salty sea air. You will enjoy beautiful ocean views from the patio and memorable evenings and dinners outside, with a large patio set featuring very comfortable chairs. Patio also offers a propane fire pit to keep you toasty on cool Maine nights.

We also provide 2 retro-style beach cruisers for exploring the delightful neighborhood, in addition to two kayaks, paddles and life vests for our guests to enjoy, as the water's edge is only 100 yards away.

Where you’ll be

South Portland, Maine, United States

Only 9 minutes to downtown Portland, just named by Thrillist as "The #1 City in the country to spend the weekend" , "The most underrated food city in the US" plus "The Best Drinking City; although it was also rated by Bon Appetit as "The Foodiest Small City in the Country". Willard Beach was just named the 2nd prettiest beach in Maine.

The Willard Beach neighborhood is the hottest neighborhood in the entire greater Portland area. Everyone wants to live there and vacation there, with it's incredible walkability being the primary selling point of the neighborhood. From this house, you can drive to Downtown Portland in 7-8 minutes, walk to Willard Beach in less than 2 minute (150 yards away!) and also walk to the shops at Willard Square (around 5 minutes), featuring Nationally award-winning Scratch Baking Co, Willard Scoops Ice Cream Shoppe, and Flip Creperie. By September, Scratch Baking just added a new location, called The Toast Bar, where you can sit on the fantastic outdoor patio (or inside) and order made-to-order breakfast and lunch items and coffees from their outstanding coffee bar.

Also nearby are the Spring Point Lighthouse, Bug Light park, the SMCC campus, and the ever popular 158 Picket Street Cafe, owned and operated by some of the original owners of Scratch Baking (the parternship split a few years ago) and featuring delicious breakfasts and lunch in a cozy setting, with a charming outdoor patio in back.

There are several very good restaurants, all within a 10-15 minute walk of the house, including Ellsmere BBQ, Thai Taste (good Thai food), David's 388, Terra Cotta Pasta--a great carryout Italian shop with really good prepared foods to go, and a nationally award-winning pizza place, Otto's Pizza, just a short (1-2 minute) drive away. The new 43* North restaurant and Saltwater Grille, both with huge and gorgeous oceanfront decks, are a short 5-minute drive away.

Beautiful Cape Elizabeth is also just a short walk away, with access to even more beautiful beaches, plus Fort Williams and the Portland Headlight, the most photographed lighthouse in the US. Walk to the lighthouse within 30 minutes of the house.
