Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Warren King is Music Director at Christ Church in Kennebunk, and wife Jane is an architectural historian and researcher. We bought the Captain Chadbourne House because we fell in love with the numerous original Colonial-era features, such as wide plank pumpkin pine floors, Indian shutters in the windows, beamed ceilings, and many fireplaces. We also love to entertain, and the house has wonderfully gracious rooms for guests. We love to cook, too, and we're sure you'll enjoy your breakfasts!
Why the Owner Chose Kennebunk, Kennebunk, ME, USA:
We love the beach, and we love small town life. Kennebunk is a beautiful historic New England village, with miles of sandy beaches, and plenty of conveniences such as shops and restaurants within walking distance of the house. Lovely beaches are just 2-3 miles away. Kennebunk is just an hour and a half drive from Boston, located halfway between the historic cities of Portsmouth and Portland. The Portland International Jetport is just a 25-minute drive from Kennebunk, and Portland itself is a lively city full of history and culture, as is Portsmouth NH.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The Capt Chadbourne House is right in the heart of Kennebunk village, an easy walk to restaurants, shops, churches, parks, the public library, the excellent local historical museum, tennis courts, and the beautiful Summer Street ship captains' mansions which make up a National Register Historic District. The Capt Chadbourne House is on the museum's district walking tour! We're also just a short drive or bike ride to several glorious beaches, enjoyable in every season.
