Space 600 sq ft
Property type cottage


About the property

Studio, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Prime Weeks Available For 2018 Summer!!! SpongeCake is an unspoiled Maine classic located at Higgins Beach in Scarborough. The beautiful silver-sanded beach is only a half block walk away and within earshot of this darling, compact cottage. SpongeCake features a true beach feel with easy to live with hardwood(and tile) floors, six skylights, full galley kitchen, full casual bath and washer/dryer. If you have a smaller group or family and love easy beach living, SpongeCake may be the place for your Higgins vacation. The layout is open and sunny one floor living. The smaller, fenced yard has plenty of room for children to play, bbq, picnic table and chairs to read paper, enjoy happy hour, etc. Higgins is prized as a place where visitors return year after year(when they can get in) and where friendships made are renewed over and over.

**Please note that house in Photo 6(with flag) shows beach; the house is NOT SpongeCake
