traveler reviews for this south portland cottage rental

Highly recommended

Review submitted: August 14, 2014   Date of arrival: July 29, 2014

This home is excellent. It is meticulously updated and maintained. It's small, but 10 times better than a hotel room. Even though it is in an urban/suburban neighborhood, there is no road noise at all - just the occasional fog horn. Four good restaurants are a 5-10 minute walk away. It's really just a cool place where people live with lots of things to do and see. The whole area around South Portland did not feel touristy to us at all.
Finally, even though we were pleasantly surprised by everything else, the main reason we picked this house is because it was one of the only houses on the Maine coastline that will allow a stay of less than 1 week. Coming from California, where it's rare for more than 2 or 3 nights to be required, I couldn't believe people put up with almost every owner requiring a full week stay or more. Thank you Patti and Britt!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: We are so happy you enjoyed our neighborhood and The Foghorn Cottage. We think it's important to have a comfortable place to call home when you are exploring new areas. We try to be flexible with dates because not everyone needs exactly a week. Some a little less. Some a little longer.

Perfect cottage for family get together

Review submitted: June 11, 2014   Date of arrival: June 3, 2014

The cottage is nicely decorated and thoughtfully outfitted with everything a visitor could want. There is a modern kitchen and bathroom. Location is on a great side street close to the beach and Cottage Road. Nice backyard with twinkly fairy lights at night. Only drawback (and this is typical for all properties in this neighborhood) is homes are very close together, so car and screen door noise is hard to avoid hearing (and hard to avoid making). We would stay here again in spring/fall for sure.

Beautifully renovated, charming, well located!

Review submitted: December 31, 2013   Date of arrival: December 27, 2013

Visiting family for the holidays in the Portland area, this was a great "home base" with a well-equiped kitchen, large, light-filled living room, and two bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Situated on a quiet residential street a few blocks from the beach, lighthouses, and a great bakery/coffee shop (Scratch) and ice cream store. Very close to Broadway and Cottage streets, as well as a big grocery store, and the bridge into Downtown Portland, The Old Port, ferries to the islands, and the interstate highways. Very nice, newly renovated bathroom (great shower) but there's only one so that's something to be aware about. Owners were friendly, helpful, and live a few minutes away. Highly recommended!

Owners response: Thank you for your kind words! We are glad you enjoyed the amenities we added during the recent renovation. The Foghorn Cottage really is the perfect spot to start all your adventures in Southern Maine. Whether it's a family event or outdoor excursion, The Foghorn Cottage provides a relaxing, comfortable place to start.
