About Betsy Coughlan

I have always loved the outdoors, whether it be golf, tennis, biking, kayaking, sailing or swimming at the beach. The location of this home in Kennebunk Beach is second to none, filled with fresh ocean breezes, sunlight and privacy. Every day is a gift as you watch the most spectacular sunsets over the water while sipping bordeaux from your own private waterfront patio. Please 'be my guest' and enjoy the rustic elegance and inherent beauty of this very special home.

I have lived and worked in seven cities on three continents around the world. I have been fortunate to have traveled extensively and enjoyed many luxuries in life. And from this, I can so appreciate the uniqueness and serenity that this home and this location offers.

Betsy Coughlan purchased this house in 1994

Why Betsy Coughlan chose Kennebunk

This home is absolutely magical. Facing due west on a peninsula of land, this 'secret hideaway' enjoys the most spectacular sunsets in your own private home by the sea. Listen to the waves lull you to sleep each night, moor your boat outside and relax amidst flowers and stars on the water's edge. With spectacular views from every window, you will never want to leave!

What makes this house unique

Privacy, serenity, proximity to the beach and town, bold, bold oceanfront!

AMAZING property!!

  • 5 of 5

We've vacationed in this area for many years and out of all the rentals we've had this was the most spectacular and we had a truly unforgettable vacation! Because the home is right on the water it feels like you're on a houseboat with gorgeous water views in every direction. Lords Point is a small, private road so you're sheltered from the beach activity when you're home but it's a one minute walk to Mother's Beach if you're craving some sand and waves. But honestly, it was kind of hard to leave the deck, which has an outdoor fireplace and the most comfy deck furniture you can imagine. Oh and there's a great table and chairs on the deck as well where we ate many dinners watching the unbelievably beautiful sunsets (the house faces west which is hard to find in this area).

The beds are very comfortable with fine linens, the bathrooms are marble, the kitchen is very well stocked, and Betsy has thought of everything you could possibly need. We rented bikes and it was so much fun to bike up to the tennis club, down to the other beaches, or into Kennebunkport to do a little shopping.

I forgot to say there is a sound system throughout the house that you can control through an easily downloadable app, so you can listen to your music through ceiling speakers in any room or even on the deck! The cove is great for kayaking as well, and Strawberry Island provides hours of tidepool exploring when the tide is out.

The house is just 3 doors down from KBIA-the best childrens' program we've ever come across. It runs for about 8 weeks in the summer and has all kinds of classes for kids: sailing, golf, tennis, surfing, woodworking, art, tidepools-and lots more. It's a fabulous program that all of my kids loved growing up.

Betsy was a perfect host-you can tell she really cares about her guests. She had gourmet pastries, fresh squeezed orange juice and a wonderful bottle of wine when we arrived, and was extremely responsive to every request.

Best vacation ever! We love the Boat House and we'll definitely be back next year! Thank you Betsy!!

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Betsy's house for a weekend away and absolutely loved it! Betsy was incredibly responsive and hospitable. The house is gorgeous with tasteful decor and beautiful views. Even though the weather wasn't perfect, we enjoyed the outdoor living room by starting a fire in the outdoor fireplace and having dinner. The kids loved it too! Close to the beach with a playground for the kids, the location was perfect for us. I can't rave about this place enough! Perfect for a family or 2 couples!

Enjoy wonderful leisure activities such as antiquing, museum hopping or strolling in and out of the wonderful Dock Square Shops. Rent a bike and enjoy a scenic tour of the area. Go out on a lobster boat and watch the traps being collected. Or simply stroll the beautiful beaches and breathe in the sea air! There is so much to do here!!!
