About the Property

House, 7 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Location: 42 Island Beach Road, Drakes Island, Southern Coast, Maine, USA (Drakes Island, Maine - less than five miles from the Maine Turnpike and the Wells Train Station and one mile to US Route 1 via paved causeway, just south of Kennebunkport and north of Ogunquit).

Accommodations: Beach House and Guest Cottage, 7 Bedrooms (sleeps 10), 2 Baths w/ outside latticed-enclosed shower.

Situated less than 100 yards from the sand of the most beautiful two-mile stretch of beach in Southern Maine, this pre-WWII vintage beach house and remodeled guest cottage features modern amenities while maintaining the warm charm of a family Maine beach house. In addition, it's a short walk to the salt marsh and tide-water estuary for kayaking, canoeing, wading and swimming. Tennis, basketball and a playground are a short walk, too.

The Beach House is beautifully decorated, equipped with all amenities including wireless Internet, several bookshelves of good reading material TV with DVD player and stereo sound system. Off-street parking for four cars. The Beach House has four bedrooms, bath, kitchen and a large cathedral-ceiling living room and a dining room with an extended-family dining table.


The Beach House living room is furnished with colonial rockers, coffee tables and reading lamps. The upstairs has four bedrooms: two with two twin beds, one with a king bed and one with a queen bed. The upstairs bathroom has been completely renovated with new full tub-shower and pedestal vanity. An outdoor shower is located close to the kitchen back door. The south-facing shaded screen porch offers mid-day respite from the noon sun. The kitchen is fully-equipped with modern conveniences, including a gas range and oven plus a microwave oven, pots and pans, china, glasses and flatware. The handmade dining table comfortably seats ten.

The separate Guest Cottage offers three bedrooms; one with two twin beds, one with loft-style bunk-beds and one with a double bed. The Guest Cottage walk-thru bathroom area includes a washer – dryer and an additional refrigerator/freezer. The adjacent southwest facing deck is equipped with a gas grill, patio table and chairs and sheltered from the sea breezes and completely private. Just bring your own sheets, towels and beach gear, like Bocce.

Here's what some of our guests have said, 'You have a fabulous house with lot of history.' 'Your 'little piece of heaven' far exceeded our hopes and expectations . . . Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.'

Please ask about additional local recreation and family options for tennis, and day camp at the local DIIA Community House. See 'Links to more information', below.
