Had such a nice time at the palace. The location and area are so nice and laid back. Quintessential Maine. Beautiful views and grounds. Loved the flowers and yard. Convenient location to everything around the area. Would definitely recommend it and book again. Perfect for families.

My family stayed in the palace in late June. We have been coming to Biddeford pool for 15 years and this trip didn’t let us down! The house is quaint and has all the amenities needed for a relaxing vacation. The house has a nice ocean view, great porches, not to mention access to a small beach and walking distance...

Management response:

Thank you so much for your review. I love your phrase "a perfect place to get away"! I think so, too, and I'm glad to share. Please do come back! Regards, --Suzanne
