Old Orchard Beach and Saco Bay, Maine

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, whale watching charters and Kayak rentals 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 Peekytoe Cottage is an activity surely not to be missed! (Best catch in 2006 was 70 fish in one week!)

The days and nights enjoyed at the Peekytoe Cottage and Carriage House 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 patio. At night when the stars shine overhead and the silvery moon rises to illuminate Saco Bay, pull out a bag of marshmallows to roast into the night around your own 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 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. The new Easter Trail, a bike and walking path winds its way through Saco, Old Orchard Beach and Scarborough. Also in nearby Scarborough is Scarborough Downs Racetrack with seasonal live horse racing and fine dining. 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 many other points of interest are conveniently provided for you at the Peekytoe Cottage.
