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 house in 1993

Why Dale Ann Squires chose Kennebunkport

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 25 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 house 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.

Spacious! Privacy! Quiet! Beautifully appointed!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 10, this property gave everyone enough space to "do their own thing" with 5 bedrooms & as many baths, yet the communal areas (kitchen, dining, deck) were large enough for all.

BONUS: I texted the owner a few times w questions and received IMMEDIATE response.

This house is gorgeous!

Beautiful well kept home.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful well kept home. So close to Turbat's Creek that we could explore every morning during low tide and swim every evening during high tide. And so close to town that we could ride in on our bikes every day. Amazing accommodations that fit our family perfectly! Thank you!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Kennebunkport every summer and this year's trip was one of our most memorable. The house has a wonderful location and great water views. We had 2 families -- 10 people total in the house and we were all very comfortable. The kitchen is very spacious and conducive for cooking a wonderful family meal. The owner is incredibly helpful. Thanks for everything!

What you see is what you get

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as pictured on web site. Quiet, out of the fray location but 5 min. drive to central Kennebunkport. Nice kitchen if you don't want to eat out every meal and nice deck for relaxing outside. The group's favorite restaurant was Nunan's Lobster Hut just a few minutes' drive.
