Beautiful vacation home just feet from the water's edge, with breathtaking panoramic views of Goat Island Lighthouse, surrounding harbor, islands and open ocean. Quiet setting, off the beaten path, with easy access to the attractions of 'The Port' (Kennebunkport) and nearby beaches. Full access to a private (shared with only one other house) dock right in front of house. Lots of grass for kids to play, and tidal pools to explore. The views cannot be beat, and the interior finishes of the house are high-end. Most people who visit this house say they have never experienced views this spectacular.
There are two king-bed master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, 1 queen-bed guest room that shares a hallway bathroom with the 3-bunk kids' room.
No houses are allowed to be built this close to the water today in Kennebunkport, and no expansion of homes in this area is permitted. This is truly a unique and very special home. The house is only rented out a few weeks of the year, as our own family uses it regularly.
Paddle the house's canoe or paddle-board, row the dinghy or row boat, or have a kayak or more paddle boards dropped off by the local rental service to launch at high tide right in front of the house. Or at low tide put on your Tevas or an old pair of sneakers and go mud-flatting. Likely you will find yourself just lounging on the porch sofa and watching the tide go in and out, boats sailing by, and the lobstermen unloading the day's catch at the pier.
Walk a few doors down the street to pick up your fresh steamed lobster, steamers, chowder and corn from Langsford Lobster company, or walk a little farther to Cape Porpoise Kitchen for sandwiches and gourmet prepared foods, or to famous Bradbury's Market for groceries.
Our house is extremely clean and great for people sensitive to dust or with allergies. Unlike some old Maine cottages where the furniture emits clouds of dust when you sit down, the beds, linens and furniture in our house are new, and we have the house deep cleaned regularly.
Enjoy the brand new 6-person hot tub after jumping into the chilly Maine water. Personal chef recommendations upon request. Access to a Peloton spin bike upon request.
Please note the number of guests should not exceed 9 people. The maximum guest arrangement would be 6 adults in the 3 bedrooms (2 kings and 1 queen) and 3 children in the bunk room (or 2 adults).
We also have a cottage next door that is occasionally also available for rent.
Please contact the owner with any questions. The rates are not negotiable.
