Visitor Memberships may be obtained by tenants who are renting a Drakes Island property. The price of the membership is VERY reasonable (in 2014 a family membership is $30 for one week or $40 for 2 weeks) This membership carries the same privileges as a permanent resident membership and allows you to reserve the tennis courts and have your kids participate in the Kids Day Camps. Please go to the Drakes Island Association website at DIIA.org for details and membership forms. There is an additional small fee for using the tennis courts.
Bring your bikes to ride along the quiet residential streets. A permanent land bridge from Drakes Island makes for easy access to shopping, restaurants, and movies.

About Loretta Hoglund
My father's family started coming to Drakes Island in 1913 & fell in love with it. So far, 5 generations of our family have come every summer since then. No matter how far away parts of our family have moved, we all come 'home' every summer to center ourselves.
Loretta Hoglund purchased this House in 2003

Breathtaking views, beautifully furnished
We are owners of another home at Drakes Island. We rented this home for guests to our daughter's Kennebunkport wedding. This home was beautifully furnished, extraordinarily comfortable and wonderfully maintained. It was such a warm and comfortable place for us to offer to our guests. Pride of ownership is evident in this great home. Views from the sunroom were spectacular. We were lucky and grateful that is was available for such a special occasion. Many thanks.
