About Marie Koerick
I was raised in the NYC area and raised my kids in the Villanova area of Pennsylvania. I moved to Falmouth and this cottage in 2001 and fell in love with the neighborhood. I have been rehabbing and updating the house over the years bringing it to its current lovely condition after purchasing it in 2007.

Why Marie Koerick chose Falmouth Foreside
I love Maine and the charming, quaint and upscale Foreside area along the water. This house is located on a quiet private street and yet only minutes to downtown Portland. Its the best of all worlds. The beach is private, the evenings quiet and the neighbors are delightful. While visiting my now growing family around the country I enjoy sharing my home with others. It is steps from the beach )less than 30 yards and a kayak rack is available. I am not right on the beach but have limited water views from my windows as shown in my photos.
What makes this Cottage unique
Because this is my lovely home it is decorated with my own belongings and is furnished with items I treasure and my own paintings. I share these things with those who rent it and it has been my experience that my renters appreciate and care for it in a special way. I have recently (2015/16) updated the entire house. I have added new furniture, windows, bathroom, new washer dryer, a new roof and newly upholstered chairs, etc. I use quality sheets and towels and I have added special touches. It is not your average beach rental.

Quintessential Maine Cottage
We thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay at Falmouth Foreside. The location was ideal for our day trips to Portland and Freeport. The house had everything we needed for a comfortable and very pleasant stay...very warm and welcoming. The house itself is charming and sits in a unique and "Mainesque" setting. We had two couples and found plenty of towels, dishes, seating, etc...We spent a couple evenings on the outside sitting area, drinking wine by candlelight under the starry skies...absolutely beautiful!
4 nights in early sept
We enjoyed Marie’s ocean cottage. The house photos are very accurate. It would have been nice to have a deck/ porch to sit on to view the cove but i didn’t expect it based on the photos. The cove is a 2 minute walk snd u can see it from the kitchen windows. The bed was siper comfortable, great hot water and pressure. We rnjoyed the kayaks and the kitchen amenities. Marie’s restaurant and local attractions were helpful. Parking is a little funky but doable and we had a good size SUV. TV and internet worked well. It would s also a nice neighborhood , friendly people and very safe feeling
Very Charming Home, Peaceful Retreat, Lovely Bay Views
The home, location and town of Falmouth was absolutely wonderful! It was everything we hoped for and more. I spent a week in mid July 2019 with my daughter. Marie was very helpful highlighting all the towns and restaurants in the surrounding area, which was a perfect guide for us to follow. I only wish we had more time to explore the beautiful coastal areas of Maine. Also, the weather in July was perfect. We will be back. Thank you, Marie
July on the Bay
This property has more amenities than you could ever need! The kitchen is fully stocked with lots of extra utensils you think you’d never need including; ice cream scoop, bottle/wine opener, chip bag clips, coffee bean grinder, etc. Plus there are place settings for a nice dinner.
The kayaks were amazing! We took them on the bay in the morning during high tide. This was a highlight of our trip, cruising by all the boats in the bay.
There are many churches near by. The Catholic Church is 3min away!
It was a very hot week when we stayed (80’s) so the master bedroom got very hot at night, about 81 degrees according to our baby monitor. We had 2 fans running and the de-humidifier. If you have a child I would recommend bringing an additional clip on fan for the pack n play.
This is a great central location for getting to other cities.
I wanna go back!
We really loved everything about this cottage. Marie was very easy to communicate with, we had a lot of troubles with our flights and she was very understanding. The beach access was so easy. It was everything we were hoping and more. We definitely want to try to go back and stay in this cottage.
Overall, we had a great time. The owner's local recommendations were great. Especially, the Royal River Grill. Only minor complaints would be that the outdoor furniture was dirty. The old shower curtain used as covers for the cushions doesn't do the job. There were cobwebs on the bar stools in the kitchen and some of the dishes were dirty. I would really have enjoyed opening some of the windows to enjoy the fresh sea breeze, but they did not open. I would still certainly recommend the property and I would stay there again.
Sorry about the outside furniture I think I need to eliminate white cushions. But all the windows are brand new and should be able to be opened. I will Certainly check this out. Thank you for your comments.
