This authentic Maine cottage has created wonderful beach memories
for several generations. Ideally located on a small spit of coast
that locals call "South Point," the house is on the edge of a
picture postcard sandy beach that stretches for 3 miles. It is also
a 5 minute walk from a rocky section of coast ideal for exploring
tidal pools or watching birds.
Because of its proximity to the beach, the house is ideal for all
manner of beach activities, including sunbathing, swimming,
surfing,snorkeling, kite-flying etc. Since the house is also only a
5 minute walk from a rocky stretch of coastline, fishing, kayaking,
birdwatching, daydreaming or dogwalking are all easily arranged.
The South Point neighborhood of Biddeford Pool is a small family-
oriented, enclave-within-an-enclave. An ice cream truck wanders
lazily through the streets each afternoon, its music summoning
children from surrounding cottages. The entrance to a scenic
Audubon nature preserve is a short stroll from the cottage. The
walking trail in the preserve features classic Maine scenery--bold
rocks, graceful pines, and a dramatic view of the nearby Wood Island
A 15 minute walk takes you into the picturesque village of Biddeford
Pool, complete with general store, lobster pound and post office.
The small harbour (the "Pool") is ideal for kayaking, sailing or
