This nearby beach is beautiful, and much of our time in Maine is spent there with our family and friends. Lots of beach for Bocce and waves for boogie boarding or surfing. We enjoy time spent in Maine. The nature trail at end of point is not to be missed. Catch it at low tide and you can venture out to Timber Island and cross the channel to a large beach. It's great for fishing and kayaking too.

Southern Maine Gem
The home was everything it was advertised to be, extremely comfortable with well-appointed furnishings. Our party of six adults enjoyed the lovely views, from the deck, of the Atlantic Ocean. It was a short drive to some wonderful beaches & restaurants, and close to the attractions of Kennebunkport & Portland. A quiet & peaceful vacation spot.
So good to hear that you and your friends enjoyed your vacation in Maine and found the house to be everything you hoped it would be. Thank you again for being such wonderful guests.
We arrived on a sunny Saturday, in this house which looks very much as a retreat from the traffic. Our kids and grandkids loved it so much that we barely left the place during the week, only to go to the grocery. We walked every day to the beach which we saw upon arrival , which is quiet and not deep, which is good for the kids. Some of us ran on the trail to Timber Island, some looked at the stars at night. We all enjoyed our evening BBQ. The place is clean and its four bedrooms were ok for us ,landlord answered very rapidly to our questions. Environment is quiet , with some very lovely houses. We will consider booking it another time
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. So nice to know that you enjoyed our house and all that Granite Point has to offer. Looking forward to hearing from you in the near future.
Comfortable home on beautiful point. Plenty of room. Perfect location, short stroll to two quiet sandy beaches and an estuary. Away from crowds but easy access to larger beach, groceries, good ice cream. Very nice hosts. We had perfect weather. I want to return.
Thank you for the kind review. I am happy to know that you enjoyed your stay in our home and the surrounding area. I hope you returned home with many fond memories.
My 4yo son and I loved our August vacation at this house. Great space allowed us to host grandparents throughout our two-week stay with no concerns about being too cramped. The kitchen was perfect for all the meals we cooked. The outdoor porch was ideal for afternoon drinks and snacks. We loved walking to the beach, exploring the nature trail just past the stinky beach, and hanging out at Biddeford Pool and Kennebunkport. The spot is a little remote, which is exactly what we were looking for. The owner was extremely responsive when we had a question during our stay, and the space was clean and comfortable. I would recommend this home highly!
Excellent home beautiful area very relaxing
We had six of us staying for the week and two guests stayed for a night. Plenty of room for everyone. No complaints at all. The home is well kept and the layout very comfortable
Our Summer Getaway
This house has been our summer getaway for the past three years. It has everything that you want and need for a great vacation. We feel that it is our home away from home. The location is also perfect for our young family. We walk 2 minutes to a private beach, bike 5 minutes to Fortunes Rocks beach, and during low tide, we cross the river to Goose Rocks. The kids think of this as their adventure. We love coming to this area because of its tranquility, the beaches are never crowded, and the people are very friendly. We love this house so much that we do not even bother to search for another one.
Located on beautiful Granite Point surrounded by ocean facing cove beaches. Fishing from shore or perfect for kayaking. Home to a Rachel Carson preserve with Saturday morning bird watching tour with the ranger. Trail to Timber Island. Short drive to beautiful Fortune's Rocks Beach. Nice area for walks or bike riding.
