Drakes Island cottage description

Walk down a private path to the most beautiful two-mile stretch of sandy beach in Southern Maine. This 1950’s vintage beach house features an amazing view of the nearby salt marsh and tide-water estuary, which can be used for kayaking (rentals available nearby), canoeing, wading and swimming. Tennis, basketball and a playground are a short walk.

Rental is the lower floor of a two family house (owner occupies top floor). Rental includes bath with tub; a separate enclosed shower has outside entrance.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1954

          About the owner: My parents built the cottage in 1954.

          Why the Owner Chose Drakes Island:
          Drakes Island is a special community with no commercial properties and a great family atmosphere yet it is also close to numerous restaurants, antique stores, etc. on Route #1 and it is only minutes from Ogunquit and Kennebunkport. About 15 minutes from the Maine Turnpike and Wells Train station -- both of which have easy access to both Boston and Portland.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Wonderful views of the ocean and marsh, easy access - via a private path - to the ocean, and use of one of America's best beaches.
