vacation rental description

Located 60 steps from Willard Beach in South Portland, Maine, the Birdhouse at Willard Beach is the perfect place to kick back and relax.  A comfortable seashore cottage, the Birdhouse has three bedrooms (a queen and a single downstairs and two twins upstairs) and one bath.  Furnished in eclectic and informal cottage style, you will find all of the comforts of home.

Willard Beach is a little known gem – a mile long sandy beach just minutes from downtown Portland. With a seasonal beach house with restrooms, snack bar, showers and a playground it is the perfect place to spend a summer’s day. From the house as well as the beach you can enjoy a great view of the islands, Casco Bay and the ship channel. The Birdhouse at Willard Beach is a short walk not only to the beach, but also Willard Square – home of Scratch Bakery and Willard Scoops, a homemade ice cream shop.  Also within walking distance are several restaurants, lighthouses, parks and a live theater, and it’s no more than a 10-minute drive across the bridge to downtown Portland.

The Birdhouse at Willard Beach is a great spot to be in the summer with its proximity to the beach, but also a wonderful place to spend a weekend or a week in the off-seasons.  The bakery is open year round, and there is something quite magical about the beach in winter!  (And all dogs take note:  Willard Beach is open to dogs all day from October to April!)

cottage rental amenities

The Birdhouse at Willard Beach has all the amenities you could wish for: Flat screen TV, DVD, Wireless Internet, W&D, gas grill, books, games, an outside deck, a closed-in front porch and fenced in back yard, and access to one of the best beaches (and best kept secrets) in the Portland area!
