This was our 2nd visit to the BillowHouse. It was wonderful as it was the first time. I just wish we didn't live so far away so we could go more often. Mary and Judi were gracious as usual! I love this quaint little beach town and especially the house being right on the beach.

When you come to the BIllowhous, you not only have a perfect location right beside the beach in this quaint little resort community, but than you have the Billowhouse itself. Every bit of it is a reflection of Mary Kerrigan, who ran it for years with her husband Bill, and now does so with her trusted friend, Judi. Together, they...

I had the chance to stay at this beautiful and charming inn for about 5 weeks. Mary and Judi were very nice and welcoming. The stunning beach is right there and ideal for a walk or jog. I was developing a website for a family business and Judi kindly offered her perspective since she was revamping a website during that...

We spent 4 wonderful days at the BillowHouse in Ocean Park. Mary and Judi could not have been more welcoming or more helpful. We stayed in the Lighthouse room and enjoyed the view of the ocean from inside the room and from the balcony outside as we sat in the rocking chairs for a delicious breakfast or reading or just...

Couldn't have found a better place. We stayed in the Saco Bay room and it was incredible. An amazing private deck overlooking the beach was a great place to have the wonderful breakfast and baked goods prepared by Mary and Judy. Mary and Judy themselves are so welcoming and willing to help you in any way they can. Judy even...

We stayed in the ocean front room (which really is) which shares the porch with the light house room. Breathtaking view of the ocean. We enjoyed finding all the delicious treats for breakfast that Mary and Judi prepare. You have to serve yourself, but you will not go hungry and the variety and quality can't be beat. We loved the...

Very special place right on the ocean in a little spot time forgot. Ocean Park is delightful and peaceful yet only seconds from OOB and minutes from Portland and Kennebunk Port. The BillowHouse built in 1881 is just wonderful in every way, clean, many little touches every where you look that big places just do not do. There are to...

I have been going every fall to the Billowhouse for the past 7 years now. Mary and Judy welcome us like family and we feel just like visiting our mom and relatives. They are so lovable! I usually stay in the Lighthouse and discovered last weekend the Oceanview room. Both face the ocean and give fantastic views of the sunrise!...

We have been going to the Billowhouse for four years now and we love every minute of our time there. Mary & Judi make us so welcome and every need is met. Attention to detail is their practice and it makes for a lovely vacation. From waking up to the sound of the waves and watching a sunrise, to a...

We go for a "Girlfriends' Weekend to BillowHouse twice a year. Our excursions started out as once a year, but now are twice a year. We are pampered by Judi, while at the BillowHouse, we love the hot tub, and home baked goods for breakfast in "The Gathering Room". It's close to the beach, shopping and dining - we are...
