Walk a private path to the most beautiful two-mile stretch of sandy beach in Southern Maine.  This 1950ís vintage beach house features an amazing view of the nearby salt marsh and tide-water estuary, which can be used  for kayaking (rentals available nearby), canoeing, wading and swimming.  Tennis, basketball and a playground are a short walk.


Here's what are guests have guests said,


"Why do we return year after year?  We return for the Magic Path!  It is a path that unites the very best in life.. family, friends, food.....  It is a path where life is contemplated and where time passes slowly."


"Great weather, warm ocean, incredible sunrise and sunsets.  What a way to relax, but the 2 weeks seem to go by way too fast.  We can't wait for next year!!"


Recommended by one renter:


"Eat lunch on the picnic table and enjoy the full sun at noon.

Find a secret spot at the small beach and play hide & seek or read a book.

Walk the beach to Laudholm Farm.

Go Swimming at 6 PM!"

Availability for Summer 2016 (as of 09/14/2015):



Since we have many repeat renters, we do not release dates that

were reserved the year before until January 1st in order to give our past tenants

the first opportunity to book for the New Year.

Since we were booked all summer long (June 20-September 5th),

we can't give you our availability until Jan. 1 unless we hear from

a renter that they are positively not coming back (so far that hasn't happened).
