About Jon and Susan Mitchell
We love Kennebunkport and intended never to leave this house but life happens and we had to move to the south for my job.
Jon and Susan Mitchell purchased this House in 2004
Why Jon and Susan Mitchell chose Kennebunkport
We love this house because we can hear the ocean waves at night and the fog horn in the distance. It is very quiet even in the busiest time of the summer, we have our own little slice of heaven.
What makes this House unique
We love being able to walk to the private 'neighbor's only' beach or take a stroll to Walker's Point. In the winter we love having a fireplace fire. The wisteria and rhodedendrums blooming in the spring are incredible to see. Two acres of land allows us to see the occasional deer or wild turkey from our windows. Dogs love the woods surrounding our home.

Our stay was very pleasant. The house had everything you could think of and more! Very spacious and comfortable. Very private lot with woods surrounding the back yard. It was close to town and to the ocean. Our dog was welcomed so that was an added attraction to renting this house. Great experience with Jon and Susan and the property manager, Andrew. Fantastic experience and house!

Summer in Kennebunkport includes beaches, shopping, fine dining and golfing. Winter transforms Kennebunkport into the number 2 United States destination for Christmas Prelude and the holidays.
