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 Southern Coast

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.

Quiet and Homey

  • 5 of 5

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!

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion at Wisteria Cottage this past August. when we got to Kennebunkport we were very pleased with the location, exterior and landscape of the cottage. Once we entered the house, we were wowed by the spaciousness of the interior. Most especially, the gourmet kitchen since we all love to cook. we had a wonderful time. very comfortable rooms and all the amenities needed for "like home atmosphere". The location couldn't be beat. Hope to do again sometime soon. We've been telling all our friends about the cottage and I know a few are interested.

Very roomy house, space fit 6 really well. I was disappointed that the house didn't have any feel of being in Maine or New England for that matter. The "path" to the beach is across the road and through a very nice neighborhood. The neighbor nicely helped us find it. The beach is more a rocky cove- bring

water shoes or sneakers. Didn't see anyone swim.

We spent a week there and were outside a lot. Outside kinda overgrown.

It was a great location with easy acces to town. Town is about 2mile walk.

Kathy was very accommodating and helped with anything-thanks!.

Wisteria Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Property was as described. Kitchen was fully equipped. Very quiet neighborhood with nice neighbors. Property manager was wonderful and very helpful. Recommend that you eat at the White Barn and take the two hour sailing tour located at Arundel Wharf. Also recommend the restaurant On the Marsh.

Kennebunkport is the summer residence of George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States. His compound is within walking distance of Wisteria Cottage. 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. The town is reminiscent of a Currier and Ives Christmas season.
