Haven't heard of Rankin Lane? That's why those who stay here love it so much. Rankin Lane runs for 20 acres of Maine coastline just off of Ocean Avenue in Kennebunkport. With just five houses on these 20 acres, you get unprecedented privacy overlooking the ocean, where kids can roam, bike, rollerblade and have hours of fun down on the rocky coastline.
House is in MINT condition - opened December, 2012. Gorgeous views of the ocean from all downstairs rooms - including the granite counter-topped kitchen - but most everyone is drawn to the open front porch. Two of the four upstairs bedrooms have some of the best views in the house. The 'Bonus Room' above the garage has a 56' flat screen television with a sleeper couch, recliner, a bubble-hockey arcade game and plenty of room for kids to relax (and sleep) after long days outside.
Some other highlights include: 1. Direct access to a beautiful, remote, rocky, tidal front beach where kids can find washed ashore sea treasures and sea glass, or spend hours (at low tide) finding sea urchins, star fish, crabs and baby lobsters in some of Maine's most abundant tide pools. And did we mention seals? In the summertime they're visible from our beach with binoculars basking at nearby Bumpkin Island. Too cold in the late fall and winter to play in tide pools? Walk down to our beach and the seals are now playing less than 50 yards away on our tidal 'Bass Rocks' (they move in a 1/4 mile - 50 yards from our shore in the colder months:). You will almost always have the beach to yourselves. Our neighbors on the water are friendly and know and respect our access to roughly 100 yards of coastline, but please be sure to follow the path and stay on the left-hand side of the fence down to the water. Once on the shore, ENJOY!
2. A front porch for lazy any-season days of reading, entertaining, doing puzzles, or just taking in the ocean in virtually complete privacy.
3. A 100-Year old fire-pit where multiple families can gather for late night s'mores, stories and relaxation. A former raised well, it's been filled to support some of summer and fall evening's best nights.
4. Two kayaks (green and orange), paddles and life jackets for the summer and early fall months. Take them down to the front beach (on calm days) or to nearby Turbat's Creek - a kayaker's paradise 1/3 mile away. Check tide charts before hand as 'The Creek' is surrounded by tidal islands with mud flats at low tide and 8-10 feet of water at high tide. Many say it's the best kayaking spot in the state.
On Rankin Lane, you're only 2.5 miles from Downtown Kennebunkport - but a world away.
