Prouts Neck house description

Our wonderful summer cottage has been in the family for 135 years. We are on a pretty lane which dead ends at the beach. The beach at Prouts Neck is one of the most private and beautiful in the world. Our home is very comfortable for parents and children or grandparents and family due to having 5 bedrooms, 4 are upstairs, as are two bathrooms, and one bedroom with en suite bath is downstairs. All are renovated. Modern but old fashioned style kitchen. Best of both worlds!! Laundry machines are new.
Our floors are painted an attractive blue and we have new windows & screens. We don't have or need A/C. This is Maine, by the water!! There are several TVs. We have Wi-Fi. Tons of new and old books in the Diningroom/library.

We're a 2 hour drive from Boston. There's an airport in Portland. We're around 15 minutes to Portland and the fabulous Exchange Street restaurants and shops. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to stay at 'Prouts'. We often go to Freeport for shopping at L.L. Bean and all the other great shops, then come home and hit the beach to regain our strength. The hustle and bustle of Old Orchard Beach, and the summerstock theatre in Ogunquit are wonderful fun. We also love going to Kennebunkport, to gallery hop.

We will NOT contact you to see if you want to re-rent. Please make early arrangements, (we love return visitors), to 'protect' 'your' week(s). We often fill up for the next year; soon after labor day. You've been warned!

                  Location

                  Winslow Homer's Home/Studio is on the lovely hike around Prouts Neck...one hour to do the whole loop from our house. We're 10 miles from Portland and about an hour's drive to Freeport and all the shopping (L.L. Bean, etc.) Get a Portland book, too much to describe.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1880

                  About the owner: We had fun at this nearby Kennebunkport Gallery and were back at the beach after lunch. Our sons are the family's 5th generation in this sweet summer home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Prouts Neck:
                  This great summer cottage has been in our family for close to 135 years and has been lovingly maintained and modernized. We have painted wood floors. Everything you need to be modern, to be comfortable..IS modern. We will NOT contact you to RE-RENT. PLEASE...we want you to be happy...remember to book as SOON as possible for the next year to try to make sure nobody else 'takes it'. This HAS been a problem!!! Protect your week(s).

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have a wonderful fireplace and relish beach walks to collect driftwood kindling. We have an outdoor shower (with hot water) to rinse the salt from bathing suits when you're not yet ready to call it a day. When we renovated the third bathroom, we couldn't part with the claw footed tub. It's out on the patio and the shower nozzle reaches it!!! We have a garage but it's not for cars. Go look. Washer and dryer are new and conveniently, in the kitchen.
