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

Beautiful Kennebunk area cottage
My family of four stayed in the cottage June 21 - June 28, 2008 and everything was clean and new - the lake water was clean and warm - we went swimming everyday - I would highly recommend this cottage to any family looking for a private getaway near the ocean with your own private lake area.
This waterfront cottage is a short drive to the ocean beaches and in a very private river/pond location .
The cottage has better swimming then the ocean because the river/pond water with swimming ladder has much warmer water all summer which kids love. We also have a new heated outdoor shower this year.
Away from the beach bustle, but close enough to get there easily
My family and I stayed here for a number of days and we were very satisfied. The home is spacious and a great design for small to medium families with plenty of room for older kids to have their own space. The best part is that if you can’t decide if you want to go to the ocean or stay at the freshwater cottage, it’s easy to do either. A 15 to 20 minutes drive puts you at Wells or Drake’s Island, and York is only a little more of a drive. The home itself is comfortable and easy to get to with pretty much everything you need on site including cookware and utensils. The owner is very friendly and easy to reach if you have questions, and he is very responsive. One thing I would mention is that from what we could tell the home does not have central air conditioning, although it was not needed while we were there. I would be very likely to rent this property again in the future, I felt it was a very good value and well suited to families looking to get away from the busy and cramped rentals at the ocean while still having convenient, easy access to the beaches. All while keeping the option of swimming in freshwater right in the backyard!
My wife and I stayed at the cottage with our dog for a long weekend for our babymoon in June and we had a excellent stay here.Spacious, up to date, convenient, private and peaceful. We relaxed on the dock, took our canoe out on the pond, and explored Wells. We plan to be back again in the future. Thank you Patrick!
We loved our stay. We can't say enough good things about Patrick's place. The cottage is roomy and very comfortable with the perfect location that was peaceful and private. Was very relaxing and can't wait to find time to get back for another visit.
Awesome little get away
Long weekend was amazing
Kennebunkport was only short ride down the road
Funky bow brewery is highly recommended
The beer and live music were great
Kids loved the fishing and reeled in some monster bass and then released them
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 :)
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
