Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
Secluded Riverfront two+ bedroom cottage newly constructed on a very private section of the Mousem River with pristine views and only 10 minutes from downtown Kennebunk Maine. This cottage is the only building directly on a mile long section of the Mousem River called Old Falls Pond. There are a few other Cottages you can see set back from the River when you boat up and down but it is rare that you will see anyone else on this pond/river. The fishing is very good with Large and Small Mouth Bass, Rainbow Trout, Pickrell etc. The Ocean is only 12 minutes away and southern Maine has many great Restaurants and Sites to see.

About Patrick Hoey
Owners live in Newburyport MA and fish at this cabin year round
Patrick Hoey purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Patrick Hoey chose Alfred
This location was the only cabin built on this section of the river/pond in 1950 and thus still the only cottage right on the water available to reconstructed as a new waterfront. In effect this cottage is alone on this part of the river/pond and across the river is all natural Kennebunk conservation Land so it acts as a private nature sactuary. There is no public moter boat access so no traffic on the river for you and your carry in boat.
What makes this Cottage unique
Private boating, fishing and dock swimming with new swim ladder

3rd or 4th time there...very peaceful and private!
Went thanksgiving week with my young daughter. No electronics allowed. Beautiful cabin on the river. Took some walks and played board games. Great bonding time. The cabin is totally equipped...All you need is your favorite food and a place to store your watch and phone :)
Perfect fall foliage weekend
We loved it here. It was tricky to find at night (hence the 4 stars) but once we did we enjoyed every single minute. Very private and secluded. There was only 2 of us so we stayed on the first floor but the loft and downstairs both had several beds. Beautiful water and fall foliage views from the sunroom, enclosed porch or the dock. Was perfect for our short weekend in Maine. The owner resonded to our questions promptly. Will stay here again if we ever travel back to Kennebunkport.
Cabin in the woods with a beautiful river setting
Needs some updating: beds, mattresses, bedding, kitchen dinnerware, glasses, TV sets given the price charged per night. Should also have a boat, canoe or kayak for guest use. There shouldn't be a need to immediately go shopping at nearby Walmart to stock toilet paper, tissues and bath soap. Definitely felt we were camping out and not vacationing in a comfortable home.
Beautiful cabin on peaceful river. House is very comfortable. Owner is vey responsive. Secluded yet easily accessible. The perfect place to relax and unwind!
beautiful and well worth it!!!
The picture of home doesn't do it justice. It was beautiful and so peaceful. Children loved the lake and even caught some fish. The road to home is definitely in the woods but well worth it. We would definitely go back here again. All the amenities were at our disposal and the home was very spacious for a family of six. We loved the outdoor shower and enjoyed the water view so much. we brought inflatable boats which was a blessing. Highly recommend families do the same. Water very calm and fairly warm. The view is probably even more picturesque in the fall. Can't wait to book another trip here. Thanks again Mr. Hoey for a wonderful vacation in Maine paradise.:)
Thanks for the great review
Beautiful and peaceful
Great place to vacation, we didn't want to leave. The lake was amazing, it was very private almost like it was just ours. We loved Maine Diner, and kennebunkport shopping. We look forward to coming back.
This cottage is in a very private secluded location on the Mousam River five miles upstream from Kennebunk, ME. This one mile long section is called Old Falls Pond because it has a dam downstream that produces a great fishing and exploring area as no other Cottages are on the lake front. Bring your own Canoe, Kayak or Small carriable boat and you can explore both sides (the opposite side is Kennebunk Conservation Land) of the river including some rapids upstream. Below the dam you can also hike for miles and see the original natural rapids created centuries ago after the last ice age. Other Activities: Property has Dock on private mile long pond/river for carry in boats
