We had our family reunion at Wisteria Cottage this past August. when we got to Kennebunkport we were very pleased with the location, exterior and landscape of the cottage. Once we entered the house, we were wowed by the spaciousness of the interior. Most especially, the gourmet kitchen since we all love to cook. we had a wonderful time. very comfortable rooms and all the amenities needed for "like home atmosphere". The location couldn't be beat. Hope to do again sometime soon. We've been telling all our friends about the cottage and I know a few are interested.

Very roomy house, space fit 6 really well. I was disappointed that the house didn't have any feel of being in Maine or New England for that matter. The "path" to the beach is across the road and through a very nice neighborhood. The neighbor nicely helped us find it. The beach is more a rocky cove- bring water shoes or sneakers. Didn't see anyone swim. We spent a week there and were outside a lot. Outside kinda overgrown. It was a great location with easy acces to town. Town is about 2mile walk. Kathy was very accommodating and helped with anything-thanks!.

Property was as described. Kitchen was fully equipped. Very quiet neighborhood with nice neighbors. Property manager was wonderful and very helpful. Recommend that you eat at the White Barn and take the two hour sailing tour located at Arundel Wharf. Also recommend the restaurant On the Marsh.

Perfect Setting for a Perfect Week
Perfect Setting for a Perfect Week
Wisteria Cottage was the perfect writing getaway for the week. I needed a comfortable and quiet place to hide with my dog and my laptop to finish a project on deadline. The cottage is beautifully appointed and private, spacious and luxurious. I had everything I needed and more, from the gorgeous big screen TV to the whimsical chipmunks scampering about the garden. I even saw a fox one morning. Close to the ocean at Walker's Point, and an easy drive into the shops in Kennebunkport, the location is ideal. I thoroughly enjoyed my week, and hope to stay at the cottage again in the future.

About the owner: We love Kennebunkport and intended never to leave this house but life happens and we had to move to the south for my job.
Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport:
We love this house because we can hear the ocean waves at night and the fog horn in the distance. It is very quiet even in the busiest time of the summer, we have our own little slice of heaven.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love being able to walk to the private 'neighbor's only' beach or take a stroll to Walker's Point. In the winter we love having a fireplace fire. The wisteria and rhodedendrums blooming in the spring are incredible to see. Two acres of land allows us to see the occasional deer or wild turkey from our windows. Dogs love the woods surrounding our home.
