About Cathy Fellenz

Peter is from the mid west and says this area is like Wisconsin with an ocean. Cathy is from Massachusetts and is happy to reside in her grandfather's home state. We are now retired, having had careers in education and nonprofit organizations. We thoroughly enjoy sharing our well-maintained home with family, friends and new guests.

Cathy Fellenz purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Cathy Fellenz chose Kennebunkport

We discovered Goose Rocks Beach about 40 years ago when we were vacationing with our kids in Kennebunk. As years went by and we continued exploring up & down the Maine coast, we kept coming back to this wonderful place. We especially enjoy taking long walks on the flat sandy beach. When we decided it was time to have a place at GRB to call our own, we looked for property and designed and built the original post & beam salt box house in 1997. The house was built as a vacation home that we would retire to and is accessible on the first floor.

What makes this apartment unique

Our two acre lot is in a quiet residential neighborhood and the house is surrounded by trees. A few years ago, we added a sun room with a large deck overhead, and this one bedroom apartment above our new garage. Friends, family and guests who've stayed in the guest suite/apartment love it, especially couples.

Comfortable, Quiet and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Cathy and Peter's apartment and we were extremely pleased with the whole experience. Cordial and kind owners that wanted to ensure we had a great time. We loved the open and cheeriness of the apartment that was not only incredibly comfortable, but had everything you needed from lobster crackers to bicycles and carts for the beach.

Haven of peace

  • 5 of 5

Tks to Cathy & Peter that really thought about everything to make that apartment so comfortable. We enjoyed the place that was clean and really well equipped. We had everything we needed to cook at home and a whole list of what we could do and visit while we were there. We enjoyed being so close to the ocean and the beach buggy that we could use while we were there. We had a wonderful week and we appreciate the fact that we could rest and relax far away from the city noise. The only thing we regret is that we did not take two weeks instead of one. Great place and great people. See you next year Cathy & Peter and thanks again for all the care and little attentions you have for your guests.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this apartment to anyone who desires an open, immaculate and comfortable place to stay. It was so relaxing. Owners Cathy and Peter thought of every detail when they set up the apartment. The kitchen has everything you need if you choose to cook and many items were supplied that I didn't expect. In addition, there were bikes to ride and a beach buggy to carry all the beach supplies to the best beach in the town.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kennebunkport and thanks to Cathy and Peter, it was home away from home.

Fabulous Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Fellenz property. The apartment was fresh, immaculate and lovely. It was very comfortable and everything was provided to make for an easy and comfortable stay. We ate in most evenings and found that we had everything to be able to prepare meals.

We especially enjoyed the use of the bicycles and the short distance to the beach. The location is perfect: just 3 blocks away from the beach, so very quiet for sleeping at night and a very easy/quick walk to the beach and The Tides Inn for a lovely dinner or a drink. Cathy and Peter made us feel at home immediately and were truly gracious hosts. We are planning an returning to 19 Prescott Dr next year. I would recommend this property for a couple or a family with a small child/ maximum 2 small children, as the futon in the living room could be used for two small children to sleep.

Thank you Cathy and Peter. We had a great time!

Most relaxing time at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I come up to Gooserocks all the time and this is the sweetest little get away. Very private, clean and comfortable. We love walking the beach and going into town for diner or up to Portland to the museums or for a performance. Sometimes we just stay at the beach all day and catch the tide by floating down the river. People are so friendly especially the hosts, they always have a suggestion for a restaurant or places to go shopping. If you are looking for a quiet get away with easy access to any type of entertainment, this is it!
