Kennebunk Beach house description

BEST WEEKLY RATES!
LATE-MAY thru LATE JUNE & SEPTEMBER-OCT

The Bait Can is a wonderful summer refuge for families and groups of friends. Enjoy the southern Maine seacoast, beautiful crescent beaches with the softest sand you'll ever feel, delicious lobsters and seafood, a great getaway for those who want to escape the hot summer. Bring a sweater or sweatshirt for the cool evening temps!

The home was built by the owners' great grandfather who built several beach cottages in Kennebunk Beach during the early 20th century. It has been lovingly maintained and enjoyed by four generations of family.

Built in 1922, the house is in original condition throughout, but with upgraded kitchen and bathrooms. You'll love the enclosed outdoor shower and claw foot tubs! The Bait Can is a charming, informal home, loved by all - a great place to hang out and relax.

Within a short walk, bike or drive the Kennebunk Beach area offers all of the amenities that make for a great vacation. Bring your children, bring your pets, bring your friends and enjoy a great vacation in 'Vacationland.'

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1922

                      About the owner: The Bait Can is owned by five sisters who inherited the property from their parents in 1993. Our summers growing up were spent in this wonderful house. The house was built by our great grandfather in 1922 as a wedding present for his fourth child, our grandmother.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      KBIA (www.kbia.org) offers a wide variety of children's activities and programs, and is located just a 5-minute walk from the house - next to the beach. Check out local favorites - Nunan's Lobster Hut and The Wayfarer in nearby Cape Porpoise, Merryfield's for berry picking, the Lobster Company on Rt. 1 in Arundel for fresh (live) lobsters and seafood, Cape Arundel Golf Club (where the Bush's play), Rachel Carson Nat'l Wildlife Refuge, great outlet shopping in nearby Kittery and Freeport (home of L.L. Bean).
