Old Orchard Beach & Saco Bay
Old Orchard Beach 
For the young and young at heart, a wide variety of activities and places of interest are available within a brief walk or a short drive. Downtown Old Orchard Beach, just minutes away has its famous pier and various entertainment facilities such as Palace Playland, Pirates’ Cove Miniature Golf, many restaurants, as well as fun night clubs with dancing and entertainment. You’ll enjoy the downtown fireworks display on the beach every Thursday night near the Old Orchard Pier.

Also nearby, at either end of the beach, are Pine Point and Camp Ellis, which feature quaint, working waterfronts and lobster pounds with excellent seafood restaurants close by. Deep-sea fishing and whale watching charters are available. The fisherman will want to bring along saltwater tackle. Rental tackle and bait is available just a short walk or ride away at the Camp Ellis wharf. Children will thrill at the opportunity to catch striped bass and bluefish as they are plentiful in front of the cottage and gather near shore at high tide. Fishing at the Boathouse Cottage is an activity surely not to be missed! (Record weekly catch in 2006 was 70 fish!)

The days and nights enjoyed at the Boathouse Cottage can be filled with activities such as swimming in the ocean, quiet walks on the beach and exploring nearby Ferry Beach State Park. Downtown Old Orchard Beach’s fun and amusements are a brief five-minute drive along the shore. Kayak rentals are available to enjoy the beach or nearby Saco River. For relaxation after a day on the beach, enjoy a beachfront barbeque and simply lounge on the attractive oceanfront veranda. As the night falls, stars shine and the silvery moon illuminates Saco Bay, enjoy roasting marshmallows into the night around a seaside campfire.

The best golfing in Maine is available close by in Old Orchard Beach at the Dunegrass Golf and Country Club or at Biddeford & Saco Country Club. Funtown/Splashtown, the area’s biggest amusement park featuring the new super giant roller coaster, and the Aquaboggan Water Theme Park with grand prix racecars, a mountain of gushing water and every imaginable way to cool off in the summer heat, is a short ten-minute drive away. Horseback riding facilities are featured in neighboring Scarborough, along with live harness racing and fine dining at The Scarborough Downs Racetrack. Nearby oceanfront state parks offer scenic picnic areas, nature walks, bicycle paths, and beach facilities. Discover the local fauna at the Scarborough Marsh Nature Center where you can rent a canoe and leisurely paddle your way through a maze of waterways in Maine’s largest saltwater marsh. Shopping at great outlets and the ever-popular L.L.Bean retail store in Freeport is an easy half hour drive just north of Portland.

Maps, brochures and phone numbers for these and other points of interest are conveniently provided for you at the Boathouse Cottage.
