              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1993

              About the owner: I like to pay it forward everyday....its important. I enjoy the outdoors, kayaking, hiking, sking,scuba diving in Maui or a round of golf ,sunsets and sunrises full moons , Draft horses are a weakness to me having breed and raising them for show for years.... I love just plain having a picnic even if its in the living room during a nor easter with no lights or power.... I love to travel and meet people from all over the world. I have spent years traveling in France, Italy, England, Amsterdam, Corsica, Costa Rica, Belize, all over the USA.... Its a passion ...to explore our National Parks and Cities.

              Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport:
              I fell in love with this property the minute I saw it, it was a lobster shack at the time. I bought it that day. I have worked for the past 19 years to make it what it is today. From day One many familes have spent hours in the Cottage at the creek.. Now all those kids are grown up and having families of thier own...and bringing those babies here, yahooo. Its comfortable, clean, unique with the old and the new. Its perfect for families it does have stairs to deal with Walk to town, two miles up the street or three miles via Ocean Ave and the Bush compound ...views of Cape Porpoise harbor are awesome over Cross Creek. The sunrises are beautiful.,kayaking as I said the best in southern Maine.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Kayaking at its best... camping just out on vaughn island for the family to enjoy. The best kayaking in Southern Maine. Islands to explore, Goat Island lighthouse, The Bush Compound just minutes away... your kayak will take you to all these places...and you can have them delieved to the door by calling kayak Exersions and reserving them 888-925-7496 Stepan will help you or his staff... they are awesome. OUR kids growing up would spend hours down at the water less than a minute walk and take the pools of water and turn them into Crabby day cares.... every hour changes with the tide its so much fun. The little beach is so awesome.
