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.

Very comfortable, ample and well-located.
All 10 of us and our 2 dogs had a wonderful week's stay. The house was ample and comfortable -- a great headquarters for getting around the kennebunkport area. The owners were so considerate with all the little things that made us feel very welcome. No hassle, no grief, just a terrific and restful getaway.
Inviting and Comfortable Home contributes to Wonderful vacation
We were immediately made to feel at home when we walked in the door. Andrew Nye was a gracious greeter, and property manager. He made himself available for anything we needed. The home was perfect for our 9 person family vacation. Was great to have the 4 bathrooms. We could Not have been more pleased with the layout of the house! Jon and Susan Mitchell have been exceptionally cordial with email correspondence. You won't be disappointed if you spend time here.
Beautiful home with great location
We hosted our children and grandchildren in this lovely home. It was a great location that felt so secluded but was really just off the main road. We were able to walk to a secluded beach and not fight crowds. It was also a dream kitchen and a dining room that seated our family of 10. The owners and the manager could not have been easier to work with. Our 4 year old grand daughter said it all - "Thank you for the house and bringing me to Maine!!!"
Spacious House in a great location
My family stayed at the house for almost a month in August. The owners were very easy to communicate with, the house was very clean and was in a great location. Overall great stay!
