Pine Point Promises is a lovely classic New England home with two cottages and an attached apartment, nestled alongside the Scarborough estuary on East Grand Avenue. The cottages are a short two minute walk to the longest stretch of sandy beach in Maine. Pine Point Promises welcomes summer and year round guests who want to enjoy a seaside holiday.
Pine Point in Scarborough, Maine, convenient to Interstate 95 and U.S. Route One, is a quiet seaside community which has welcomed summer visitors to Maine for generations.
Sunset Cottage is a one bedroom with additional sleeping in the living room.
It overlooks the estuary which has sweeping sunsets in the evening. It is the larger of the two cottages, just over 600 square feet, and it used to have two bedrooms, but the second bedroom walls were removed, to give more common space and it includes a round four person table and chairs, and a desk space for visitors who may have to work while visiting.
We want to advise guests that we don't provide Beach Towels (maybe next year if we can find some end of season bargains). We have a beach umbrella and a few folding canvas chairs guests can borrow. If you want something more plush or fancy, please bring your own, or there are places just down the street you can purchase them for reasonable prices.
There is outdoor lawn furniture, tables and chairs on the property and in the back yard that guests may use on the property if you want to picnic or socialize outside. We host occasional campfires with marshmallows when the weather is right, and when we do, we are happy for guests to join us.
Our goal is your safety, comfort, and happiness, and we hope to provide an experience more akin to visiting distant relatives, or friends of friends opening our home to you, versus a commercial experience.
Guests will have the cottage to themselves, with a private entrance and designated parking. The backyard overlooks the ecologically important Scarborough estuary and salt marsh. There is a no fee laundry room available in the house that guests may use as well. It is in the basement, and you will need to watch your head, as it has a low overhead clearance on the entry.
Общение с гостями
We live on the property. We both work and may be away from the property during your stay. We try not to be more than an hour away when we have guests in case issues arise. If you are looking for a property staffed 24/7, maybe this isn't the right choice for you. We are happy to answer questions, give recommendations, and are available when needed, but respect our guests privacy and space. If you need us, we will do our best to respond as quickly as we can. We are available by phone and text when we are away from the property.
Другие важные подробности
There is shelf space and a full size refrigerator for your own food and drinks. The kitchen has a four burner stove and oven, and comes equipped with dishes, pots, pans, and utensils if you plan to cook during your stay.
The property borders a nature preserve, and the same joy that comes with having birds and other wildlife close to the house, also does come with the possibility of an occasional mouse or other critter getting into the cottage. Of the many guests this year, only once have we had a little visitor, which we did catch and remove. We don't use poisons, and we do set traps, and fill holes when we find them, but cannot guarantee the absence of critters, especially if guests leave food out. Please keep food off of the floor and put away during your stay, or you may be inviting the cute critters or ants into the cottage. If you do spot one, we will come set more traps if you let us know.

I'm a Mainer - born and raised. I also love to travel and welcome fellow travellers into my home. After college, I lived in Thailand for six years and have travelled throughout Asia, Europe, and South America. I am still trying to get to Africa, Australia, and Antartica. Everyplace has its beauty and charm but I happily call Maine my home. My husband, Mitch, and I are happy to be the second generation to run Pine Point Promises. The house and cottages have been in Mitch's family for over 30 years. Mitch lived in the U.K. and Japan, and after we married we lived together in Brazil, and Guyana. Mitch is retired veteran military officer, and a registered Maine Sea Kayak Guide and former teacher. We enjoy walking the beach, hosting community events, local farm to table eateries, exploring nearby cities, and kayaking. I am a real estate agent and if you fall in love with Maine and want to live here, let's talk!
