Quaint New England at its best! Experience ocean-front, cottage living in a historic, two-story architect-restored barn. It includes modern amenities while featuring a high ceiling of original barn board, as wide as 22 inches, pine-board flooring and either tongue-in-groove or barn-board paneling.
A front door foyer opens to stairs to the second story, to a rear bedroom with twin beds, and to a short hall that leads to a front bedroom with a double bed. A small study is off the front bedroom. Other first-floor rooms include the laundry and shower/toilet.
The second story is a single large room. An expanse of windows in the kitchen/dining areas provides a sweeping view of the ocean. Large windows at the rear of the living room and fireplace offer unparalleled, panoramic views of a Mousam River tidal estuary and of trees and marshes in the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge. A door opens to a deck with chairs for leisurely observing wildlife and enjoying sunsets.
A private driveway is provided, along with a large front yard, you can rent boats in-town Kennebunkport for exploring the Mousam River and the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge marshes, and beach chairs for relaxing close to ocean waves in the private beach out front. A row-boat and single kayak are available in the back for tenant use. You can access the Mousam River from the backyard.
This weekly rental is especially suitable for a couple seeking solitude for contemplation and creative work or for merely relaxing at the ocean.
During peak season (July 1 to Labor Day) we rent only on a Saturday to Saturday basis. During September and October rentals are a three (3) minimum.
