Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had three couples with two kids and this house was the perfect size for us. It is close to both Portland and Booth Bay Harbor so we could go on different adventures and also just check out the trails/beaches locally. The house is a great size for groups and had everything we needed! It is on a quiet street so very good for kids also.
