Perfect family reunion
House is quintessential beach house. So many thoughtful touches-games, flowers on deck, beach chairs, toys, cart. All was clean. Location perfect for multi generation get together. Outdoor space and gentle, short walk to perfect Maine beach. We hope to return!
Perfect summer week @ the Bait Can!
The moment our 3 generations walked in we felt at home & relaxed! Comfortable, cozy yet roomy, the interior is full of beachy charm. The
owners have thought of everything! We've ready requested our week for next summer!
Fabulous! We love our Bait Can time just as much and are so glad to share this special place. We do try to provide just about everything needed to enjoy a carefree beach vacation. Thanks for noticing.
The Bait Can
My family and I had an amazing week at the Bait Can. It had all the comforts of home along with plenty of space for all 12 of us. We absolutely loved evenings spent out on the porch with sounds and smells of the ocean. I would highly recommend this beautiful property to anyone looking for a special spot to stay in Maine.
We are so pleased to hear you so enjoyed your week at the Bait Can and the Maine seashore. We agree, our beloved Bait Can is a special place and are glad we can share it! Come again!!
Our vacation at The Bait Can
The Bait Can was perfect to vacation with our whole family. There were 8 adults and 4 grandchildren. The house was plenty big enough for all of us. It was only a short walk to the beach and we had great weather. Everything you need is supplied by the owners. Thank you to the Halls.
Relaxing stay at the Bait Can
We enjoyed our stay at the Bait Can. We had 7 adults, 3 children and our 2 dogs with plenty of room. The location was perfect. We could hear the ocean waves and take a very short walk to the beach or drive a few minutes to Kennebunkport for shopping. The owner was very responsive to our questions and the home was surprisingly stocked with all the basics necessities, such as beach towels, hand soap, dish liquid, laundry detergent and cooking supplies. Thank you for the opportunity to rent the Bait Can so that we could catch up on some much needed family time!
Great Family Vacation
The house was just like the photos. Incredible location. A nice family beach was just a short walk away and the downtown was a 7-minute drive or a 15-minute bike ride.
Even though you cannot see the water from the front porch it was an incredibly relaxing place to sit and feel the ocean breeze.
Our German Shepard loved to go on walks in the neighborhood and the beach. (When it was allowed.)
Everyone agreed it was the best family vacation in many years.
