My family has spent summer vacations in the Saco area for over 40 years - our usual vacation spot changed owners and we'd been on the lookout (unsuccessfully) for a new place to stay for the past few years. Every place we tried just didn't measure up to our prior experiences. What luck to find the White Lamb Cottages!! The cottage we stayed in (#2) was spotless - with all the amenities - including air conditioning (a rarity in cottages in Maine). The basket of pastries, coffee and newspaper on the porch every morning was such a treat. And just steps to the beach - fantastic! It's a nice shady property and you can hear the waves from your front door. We loved being able to stroll to Ocean Park or take a longer walk to Old Orchard Beach for some good old Honky Tonk Carnival fun. We stayed just before the start of High Season and it was so peaceful and quiet. We are already looking forward to our next stay at the White Lamb.

Cottages are in a great location footsteps from the beach, but a little walk to the pier. Clean, well equipt in a comfortable setting in town. Morning coffee and treats were a special touch to great accomodations. Would not hesitate to recommend these cottages
and will go again

Our stay at the White Lamb was very pleasant. We stayed in Cottage #7 which we found to be very clean and comfortable. The close proximity to the ocean is very convenient. The scenery is beautiful and relaxing. What a fun time we all had!!! No complaints whatsoever, wish we could have stayed longer!!!!

4 of us (2 same-sex couples) stayed at the White Lamb Cottages in June 2009. We stayed in the house. Our hosts were extremely accomodating, the rooms were clean, cozy, & quiet. The house was as comfortable as our own complete with wireless internet, a well equipped kitchen, and a closet full of movies (plenty of children's titles). We could not have been any happier with our accomodations! With the owner's blessing, we toured a few of the cottages and we would have been equally as comfortable staying in any one of them. The beach is within 50 feet of the property. It's a pleasant stroll from the property down to the pier & its amusement park. Gay or straight, you can't go wrong by staying here.

Reservation through the website went well. Right away, a deposit of half the final amount of the reservation was charged to the credit card as announced. Within 24 hours, I received an email confirming the transaction, and 3 weeks before the arrival date, another email informing me that the second and last payment of the reservation had been charged. It also gave me, among other things, instructions for opening the cottage door with a code. In one of the emails, I was asked to phone the motel and give final confirmation. At the same time, I verified if tea instead of coffee could be delivered every morning with the breakfast basket and there was no problem. Note that there is no main office. Everything is done through the website or phone.

We arrived at the cottage mid-evening and found everything as advertised. The place was clean and decorated in the 50's style. The living-room contained a sofa-bed (futon) with pillows and a small blanket, a small desk, a t.v. (with a remote that wasn't working) and a phone. The kitchenette offered a table for 4, a small fridge, two cooking rings, a microwave, a toaster and a kettle. Dishes and utensils were also available. No oven, or toaster-oven, was in sight. Everything was provided to wash the dishes. In the small bathroom stood a short bath/shower. Towels and soap were waiting for us but no shampoo. The blow-dryer was not working and the fan was quite noisy. We could even hear our neighbour's. As for the bedroom, it was of decent size and had a reasonably comfortable queen-sized bed with lots of pillows. Additional blankets were on a shelf. There was air-conditioning and heating.

The cabin itself was part of a row of 6 similar cottages. Two larger ones stood separately. The grounds were pretty and well maintained, with tables and chairs, swing, hot tub (with weak jets and a rattling motor) and barbecue. Beside each front door, two towel rods invited us to dry the towels outside.

Each morning, a basket of store-bought bagels, muffins or doughnuts was delivered to the door at 7:30 along with tea (or coffee if desired) and the daily newspaper. A little note listing items to be replaced was included. The idea was to check off what was needed and put it back in the basket with the empty thermos. Later in the day, someone would drop by the requested items. No maid service here. We washed our dishes, made our bed, swept the floors (the sand gets everywhere!) and emptied the garbage and recycling.

So, although the place is nice overall and offers a great location (less than 100 feet from the sea), the lack of daily maid service does make it somewhat expensive for what you get. However, for quiet, clean and near the beach, this fits the bill very well.

Travel tips:
-Downtown Old Orchard: about 1 km or a good 10-minute walk. Best gelato on the corner of East Grand Avenue and Old Orchard St. (across Dairy Queen). A small serving: $4. The rest of the area offers the usual tourists traps (cheap clothes, greasy food and the rest).
