The Billowhouse is a secret. Once you visit though, you will be treated like the best of family.
There are places to stay on the maine coast, but not like this place. This is a refuge for the mind, and rejuvenation of your spirit. If you want to stay as a couple, or scoop on of your kids or two (like I did) you can expect to enjoy a room in a real dollhouse with windows that pour in the sunshine facing the roar and sway of the Atlantic Ocean. Did you forget your cozy robe? There’s a white fluffy one waiting just for you! These are what you can expect from the Lighthouse and Oceanview rooms. Complete with coffee maker, fridge, and microwave. Cozy nook chairs to read in by the ocean, or catch up with your favorite movies, and some you haven’t seen. Judy has tons for you! If you are up for a stay that includes a kitchen- she has that too! The kids loved that, and there was access to the outside-on-the-deck jacuzzi! That is called Cape Elizabeth, Mom and Dad get a private sanctuary with a fireplace and the kids have cozy quarters on the other side with access to their own television/DVD, and -the fridge! Now if you want the King and Queens quarters, you will go upstairs to the top. In this luxury area is an apartment as close to heaven as I think you are going to get. There is a huge jet jacuzzi inside tub that you can see the ocean from, that leads to a huge master bedroom up two elegant stairs, the bed faces directly to see the ocean. The kitchen is updated, immaculate and modern, it even has a kitchen nook for family dinners, or time with friends. The space extends to daybeds and pull outs on brand new flooring. This spacious living area leads out to french door to the outside deck with chairs, a large BBQ and the crashing waves and white sands. Really? I told you? I would love to have kept it a secret forever- except I promised the dear owners that I would write something on their behalf- they are just too humble about this place!
If this was not enough, they serve a breakfast to wake up early for! There were pancakes! Quiches!, homemade gooey caramel nut covered bundt cakes, and muffins, and waffles, and bagels and bacon and eggs the way you want them and fruit and jams and coffee and juices and the breakfast gathering room you are eating in-faces the Ocean! Judy extends her incredible hospitality with beach chairs and towels and surfboards, really? Really! Oh and when you arrive she has warm, fresh baked cookies waiting for you in your room. I hope there is room for me to stay after I have written this review. YOU WILL ALWAYS GO BACK!!! Enjoy one of the many of God’s Blessings on this earth- The Billowhouse, and tell Judy I can’t wait to go back, Susan Martin and family
“You can’t go wrong. The Oceanview is pink, rosy and peachy, very feminine, cozy – a dream The Lighthouse is where I chose to stay with my husband, it was more nautical We stayed as a family of five in Cape Elizabeth- and we still dream about it! We are looking so forward to returning for many weekends and to finally stay in the Saco Bay Suite- par excellence in the summer. We haven’t got a chance to stay in any of the apartments on the ground floor, but they look adorable. We plan to go try one in June. Can’t say enough. The Billowhouse is nestled in a darling throw back community of nice people, excellent food, ice cream parlors, fun games and toys for kids and daily summer happenings. In any season we go up just to visit. There is always something wonderful there. God Bless and enjoy!” (136SusanM)
