About Dale Ann Squires

I like to pay it forward everyday....its important.

I enjoy the outdoors, kayaking, hiking, sking,scuba diving in Maui or a round of golf ,sunsets and sunrises full moons , Draft horses are a weakness to me having breed and raising them for show for years.... I love just plain having a picnic even if its in the living room during a nor easter with no lights or power....

I love to travel and meet people from all over the world. I have spent years traveling in France, Italy, England, Maui, Amsterdam, Corsica, Costa Rica, Belize, all over the USA.... Its a passion explore our National Parks and Cities.

Dale Ann Squires purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Dale Ann Squires chose Southern Coast

I fell in love with this property the minute I saw it, it was a lobster shack at the time. I bought it that day. I have worked for the past 22 years to make it what it is today. From day One many familes have spent hours in the Cottage at the creek.. Now all those kids are grown up and having families of thier own...and bringing those babies here, yahooo.

Its comfortable, clean, unique with the old and the new. Its perfect for families it does have stairs to deal with

Walk to town, two miles up the street or three miles via Ocean Ave and the Bush compound

...views of Cape Porpoise harbor are awesome over Cross Creek.

The sunrises are beautiful.,kayaking as

I said the best in southern Maine.

What makes this cottage unique

Kayaking at its best... camping just out on vaughn island for the family to enjoy. The best kayaking in Southern Maine. Islands to explore, Goat Island lighthouse, The Bush Compound just minutes away... your kayak will take you to all these places...and you can have them delieved to the door OUR kids growing up would spend hours down at the water less than a minute walk and take the pools of water and turn them into Crabby day cares.... every hour changes with the tide its so much fun.

The little beach is so awesome.

Absolutely perfect getaway! Good for families and/or friends!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time at the house - and it was just as great this time as it had been the first time around! The house is wonderful and in a terrific location - a <1 min walk to a little harbor (where you can see a spectacular sunrise if you're up for an early start) and only a few miles from town. Dale, the owner, could not be nice or more accommodating. She helped make our stay wonderful, by ensuring that we were all situated, giving us recommendations, and responding (super pleasantly) to all of my annoying questions leading up to the stay!

The first time I went up was with a group of friends for a girls weekend away. It was spacious yet cozy, and a perfect fit for our needs. The second time, I went up with family - including a 3 year old niece and two parents who aren't all too able-bodied - and it was perfect for that crew, as well! Lots of toys and books for my niece (as well as the nearby water), and (after a set of stairs to get you into the living space of the house), a first floor master bedroom for my parents.

Between the host, the location and the house itself, this is a gem of a find!

Great house for multiple couples

  • 5 of 5

Four couples enjoyed this house over Labor Day weekend. It was spotlessly clean and there was plenty of room for all of us. Even though only two of the bathrooms were en suite, every couple got their own bathroom. There is a large table in the dining room that we made the most of with our delicious lobster dinners. Dale has made available recommendations for restaurants, including menus. There is much to do in the area, including the lovely town of Kennebunkport, which is quite near to the house. We very much enjoyed our stay and will probably be back again at some point.

Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family stayed for a week in August and really enjoyed the house, its amenities and the location. There was plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms as well as a few nooks and crannies to hang out in so we didn't feel like we were on top of each other.

The water access at the end of the street enabled us to go kayaking and explore neighboring islands and beaches were a short drive away. We really enjoyed our time here. The house was nicely appointed so this didn't feel like a rental, it felt like a home!

Nice, relaxing home! Great location

  • 5 of 5

Rented the house for a girls weekend. All but 1 of the rooms have great water views and are large sized which meant everyone was happy with their room. Several gathering areas in the house. Easy drive to town and nice to watch the tides from your windows. Dale was very easy to work with and generous. When she couldn't offer a later check out for our weekend, she offered a "free" night on the front end of our stay which some of the girls were able to take advantage of. Above and beyond and extremely appreciative of the gesture!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our family is still talking about our vacation at the big yellow house. Our daughter was getting married at the Nonantum in KBP and we had family coming from NM, TX, IL, NH, MA and CT. That's a lot of hotel rooms! When I saw the big yellow house online it seemed like the perfect place to have us all gather for the week surrounding the wedding and be able to spend lots of time together. It turned out to be the PERFECT place. Not only is the house roomy, but it is beautiful inside and out. Dale made sure we felt welcome from the moment we walked in. Having plenty of bathrooms for a large group is a must, but very hard to find even in the larger houses. This house has 6!

We enjoyed the yard for playing games, the walks to the ocean, kayaking, and putting meals on in the well equipped kitchen. There was room for us all to gather together and plenty of space to retreat at bedtime.

The house is very clean and beautifully decorated. We felt comfortable there and really hated to leave. Thank you for sharing your house with us Dale!
