Who are we?
We are third generation caretakers of this beloved family home in Ferry Beach, Maine. Our grandfather built the home for our grandmother with whom he shared a 52 year love affair. He knew even then that the salt air is good for the soul. Our grandmother loved the water and was always happiest at the ocean. Growing up the four of us were spoiled with ready access to the beach and more importantly grandparents who nurtured in each of us a deep love of the ocean. When our mothers inherited the property, it changed physically with an extensive renovation completed in 2004 which expanded on the original footprint. After living there together for many years, it has now transitioned to us for safekeeping.
Why this house?
Our home is filled with four generations of memories. We’ve celebrated birthdays and weddings at the beach. Our dogs have run along the shore and swam in the water, less concerned with the temperature then their humans. We’ve had clambakes and eaten so many lobsters. We’ve walked along at low tide, collecting sea glass and sand dollars. We’ve visited during stormy weather, witnessing the ocean’s power. We’ve had quiet moments with just a few of us and more lively ones with extended family. We’ve had joyful days filled with laughter and devastatingly sad ones filled with tears. Each new family member has felt the pull of our ocean. It’s magic. A house is just a house but when you fill it with decades of memories it becomes something more. We are excited to share this special spot with you and hope you are able to create your own wonderful family memories here.
What makes this place special?
Location, Location, Location! You are close to everything at our beach house. You can get into downtown Portland in 20 minutes. Kennebunkport is also a short drive as is Ogunquit and the famous Marginal Way walk along the ocean. Hop on the Amtrak down to Boston to catch a Red Sox game. Or head north and visit one of the charming coastal towns or Acadia National Park. Feel like shopping? The Freeport outlets and the LL Bean flagship store are a short drive away. A few miles from your home away from home are family-friendly attractions like Old Orchard Beach, Funtown, Splashtown, and Saco Drive-In. Spend your days on a pristine beach where you have plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the ocean even in the height of the summer or escape to any adventure you can dream up!
