This is one of our three homes at Goose Rocks beach we currently have listed on VRB0; see our other homes at VRBO #'s 300452, and 820059. Located at the North East end of the beach this is our three bedroom, 2 bath Expanded Cape at #320A King's Highway. Not what you typically think of for a cottage at Goose Rocks Beach this house was originally built as a year - round retirement home for my grandparents.

You enter the house through a breezeway-mudroom that abuts a two car garage. The garage is used for storage of the owners automobile and generous amounts of indoor storage for your bicycles and your beach chairs. The breezeway opens to a large, sunny eat-in kitchen with a working raised hearth brick fireplace. Enjoy the sunny kitchen window nook if you can find time to relax with a book.

Off the kitchen is the grande living-dining space......'Grande' for sheer square footage and windows.......400 square feet of hardwood and 4 picture windows let in quite a bit of sunlight, wonderful little hilltop views, and even a small sparkle of blue Atlantic Ocean and tidal creek waters.Working fireplace in living room.....small amount of free firewood out behind the garage!

This house is not furnished in the typical beach-wicker..... well worn family antiques and oriental rugs set a calming mood. Oil paintings and tick -tock clocks compliment the serenity......but do not worry...it is a wonderful house for children with much square footage for play, make-believe, and games.

Down the hardwood hall from the living area is the first floor bedroom with two twin beds. Windows on two sides, views of the oak-woods, an antique dresser.......

The master bedroom......again larger than normal at a 'cottage' is awash in lilac paint, queen size bed and more antique dressers. Windows on three sides, it is tucked into the rear of the house The master does have a connected bath with tub and shower.

Off the kitchen there is a utility room with washer and dryer and the second bath.....3/4 with a custom built tile and glass shower perfect for visiting guests and those staying in the twin bedroom.

There is a third bedroom on the second floor of the house. It has two twin beds, a bureau and two old living room chairs and a small TV....so actually makes a nice 'get away' from the people staying on the first floor. Look at our VRBO pictures to get a good idea of the whole house and it's location / setting...

We do provide all sheets and towels and the house is fully equipped so as we like to say 'All you need to bring is your suitcase and food!' Located just a two block stroll to the public access point to Goose Rocks beach...the walk is maybe 5 minutes, but the garage also comes stocked with 3 'beach bicycles' to make the short trip to the beach even more convenient.

Kennebunkport is one of Maine's prettiest villages with dozens of shops, galleries, and restaurants many in historic seaside buildings. Tennis is available for a membership fee at the Goose Rocks Beach Association right at the beach or at no charge 4 miles away at Town of Kennebunkport park on Beachwood Avenue. Three golf courses are located within 10 miles of the house. Come join us and make some Goose Rocks Beach memories to last a lifetime.
