“Mini-vaca”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

This was our second stay at The Beach House. Love it there! We're not typically "beach town" people and we don't live terribly far away, but it was a nice change. The last time we were there it was June and the town itself and the pier were a little too busy, but being there in October was a welcome change! Both times Ann Marie and Mark have been incredibly welcoming and really make you feel at home. The room was spectacular! Beautiful view of the sunrise, right on the beach, comfortable and homey. Even with its close proximity to downtown, we still found it very quiet and peaceful (even in June, it's far enough from downtown that you don't hear any of the amusement park or bar noise). It's a quick walk downtown for the restaurants and entertainment and Ann Marie and Mark give wonderful recommendations for places to go. Definitely going to be a regular mini-vacation spot :-)

Room Tip: Every room has a deck and view of the beach.

These are the only when visiting The Beach House. If you are looking for a friendly and cozy place to stay with breathtaking views of the sunrise and waves then this is the place for you. September in fact is a perfect time to visit after the crowds have dissipated. We stayed in a suite with a kitchen and front room with a picture window overlooking the ocean. The rooms above us had the same views and a private balcony. Being on the ground floor was sweet since the sandy beach was just 30 feet from our front door. Anne Marie and her Mark lovingly take care of the premises and everything was clean and comfortable. We look forward to coming back next year and relaxing all over again.

Just finished my stay at The Beach House......When I first walked into the lobby I couldn't believe my eyes...........There was the ocean right in front of me! Beautiful picture window that captures the essence of why this place was perfect. Our Condo also had the same view and needless to say it was magnificent. Anne Marie and her husband Mark also made us feel right at home. Friendly and cheerful they make you feel like family. Also added bonus, Anne Marie speaks perfect French..............what an added bonus for those traveling from Canada and French is their first language.
I would highly recommend this establishment, they have nine rental condo's that offer all the necessary requirements for those that want to cook their own meals......
Old Orchard Beach is a "funky" kind of town..........think 50's or 60's almost as if you've stepped back in time. A real gem.
It will definitely be on my trip planning for another time...........You are also close to charming Ogunquit and Portland for day trips if you want to explore.....
Super clean.............bright and sunny...........quiet for those light sleepers............This place is a keeper............

Room Tip: Ask about a room that faces the Ocean.............you'll hear the Ocean and that's a very go...

My husband and I love the beach house. You can't beat the location and the private balcony was a huge plus. Many place advertise private balcony but this one truly is, with walls on either side. We sat out on it for candlelight dinners each night. We love a place with a kitchen so we can eat in if we choose and have coffee in the morning sitting on the balcony looking at the ocean. The sunrise is spectacular as well.
The place is clean, comfortable and spacious. We have been three times and plan to go back!

Room Tip: We love the rooms on the second floor with the private balcony ( one of the two in the middle is bes...

Yes, the hosts are terrific and friendly. Yes there is indeed plenty of nice sandy beach right in front of the place. Yes the room was clean. But arriving on Labor Day weekend, we found things not quite what we found described on Trip Advisor or on the Beach House website. This is actually just one of what seems like hundreds of small hotels along a "strip" on the beach. The beach was tremendously crowded, and for sure many of the people were not staying in the actual hotels there. Had a very "jersey shore" feel, far from upscale, which the website leads one to believe since the photo has been altered to look like this place sits all alone on the beach. You can't see the hotels immediately to the left, the right, and behind the place in their picture! In fact, hotels in this are stacked two or three deep for quite some ways. The "amusement park" at the end of the strip and near the pier is definitely no better than a traveling "fair". The pier is full of junk shops and bars. We had a nice deck to relax on at the Beach House, but the "furniture" (if you can call it that) to do so was flimsy plastic chairs and table. Really? High dollars to stay but then you provide cheap plastic deck chairs? Come on! Everything is in the eye of the beholder, but make sure you really look into the Old Orchard Beach area before you plan to vacation here. You will pay high for low value.

Room Tip: Bring something to sit on if you plan to use the deck outside your room.

We loved the Beach House! We spent a week there in the middle of August and the location could not have been more perfect. We stayed in a suite on the first floor and were able to walk right out of our room onto the beach. The room was comfortable and very clean and perfect for us with our 3 year old son. We loved opening the window and listening to the ocean as it put us to sleep at night. Mark and Anne Marie were wonderful hosts! They provided us with whatever we needed on our stay and helped with our selection of restaurants when we decided to eat out. They are very friendly and our 3 year old son loved interacting with them! They would be one of the reasons we would return to the Beach House as well as the beautiful beach itself!

Staying at The Beach House was by far the best choice we ever made coming to OOB. Not only were the rooms spilling right out onto the sand, but they were tastefully decorated (we're not talking luxury, but considering the surrounding locations are all definitely motel-class, not one of them can beat this place!), gorgeous views from all of the front facing rooms (I believe there is only one rear facing room), and the place is riddled with hospitality from Ann Marie and Mark. We were here for a triathlon and originally just wanted a bed to sleep in, but we got so much more and cannot wait to return! They both were so welcoming, helpful and eager to do anything they could to make our stay more memorable and comfortable. I could not recommend this place more and I wish it was a little less popular so I could go whenever I wanted! Such a great place and a steal of a bargain compared to the rest on the strip. Gorgeous!!! Thanks again Ann Marie and Mark - we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: There is one rear facing room which is good if youre on a budget but still want a great location and...
