What a view!! No frills place but the staff bend over backward to accommodate your every need. Just walk over the dune and you are on the beach or sit on your own balcony and enjoy the pristine view. The town is very laid back and small and just a short walk from the glitter of Old Orchard Beach and a short drive to Kittery or Portland. So its well situated so that you can have the best of both worlds at a reasonable price.
My wife and I had a chance to take the kids for a quick trip to Old Orchard Beach, Maine and have wanted to stay at Billowhouse for some time. We stayed in The Dunes Garden Apartment and couldn't have been happier. Seldom have I felt more at home in OOB, even during the current Covid environment. The apartment was spacious & clean and we felt completely at ease. The apartment has a nice private closed in yard, with a gas grill available. We can't wait to go back! Hopefully, next time we can get there for a week or two! We would absolutely recommend The Billowhouse!
I have been spending vacation time here for over 15 years. The owner, Mary, has spent a number of years dreaming and remodeling, restoring and improving the facility. It is in a prime location overlooking the sand dunes with a lovely ocean view. Even during this pandemic they have done all they can do to make us feel safe and welcome. Each time you go back you are graciously welcomed to your "home" away from home by Mary, Judi and Christine.. This year, especially, it was good to go there to de-stress for a while.
Vacation is often defined as sun, sand and a beach side place to stay. We define the Billow House as that exceptional, beach side place to stay that makes your vacation possible. Their welcoming, professional, experienced staff provided a comfortable, clean and safe environment for us to relax and enjoy the beach. So happy we booked again next year.
BillowHouse is the most awesome oceanfront property ANYWHERE on the East Coast. From the moment you arrive, Judi and her staff are there to make your Maine experience a treasured memory. The accommodations are varied, taking into consideration your family's needs and desires. All amenities are provided for the beach such as chairs, umbrellas, towels and totes. In this COVID environment, the BillowHouse is spotless and all precautions are taken to ensure utmost sanitation and cleanliness. Parking is on site--a step from your door. Ocean Park is a unique destination and BillowHouse is a rare gem of a retreat. We just returned for another memorable family vacation and have plans to return in October.
