About the Property
Classic New England cottage, large deck faces ocean , 3 BR, 3 baths
This home is the perfect spot from which to enjoy the towns of Kennebunkport, Cape Porpoise, and Kennebunk and to explore all of southern Maine including Portland (an arts and foodie destination) and Freeport (an outlet shopping destination). It is is only 1.5 miles from the heart of Kennebunkport village with its many charming shops and restaurants. Walk, run, or ride a bike into the village of Kennebunkport via the famous a Ocean Avenue (with its many stately mansions facing the ocean) or by way of tree lined back roads and trails. Visit the nearby beaches in Kennebunkport and Goose Rocks Bay or the Rachel Carson Wildlife Reserve in Wells. Play golf at one of the many nearby courses. Sample the shops, restaurants, museums, and art galleries of trendy Portland, Me., Ogunquit, Me., or the outlet stores in Freeport, Me. Or simply relax at home and enjoy views of the open ocean, crashing waves, lobster men working their traps, waterfowl of all kinds, and the many crustaceans and small sea life that fill the tide pools and rocky crevices just beyond the oceanfront deck. All with the soothing sound of the ocean as it washes over the rocks.
This lovely home features 3 bedrooms (sleeping 6-7), 3 full baths (with 2 shower/tub combos, 1 shower only), a spacious, open living and dining space downstairs, a huge, open den and living space with twin sleeper sofa (with adjacent bedroom with double bed and bath) upstairs, and a downstairs back deck that extends the length of the house and is equipped with outdoor furniture and charcoal grill.
The ground floor has 2 bedrooms (carpeted) and 2 bathrooms, one with queen mattress and shower/bath and one with twin beds and shower/bath. The living/dining space downstairs (carpeted) is large, with windows and sliding door facing the ocean and opens to the deck. The kitchen (hardwood floor) is completely equipped to prepare 3 meals a day (including lobster), with dishwasher, microwave, electric stove/oven, refrig/freezer, coffeemaker, and has its own view of the ocean through the kitchen sink window. The downstairs is equipped with phone, cable TV, DVD player, and wireless internet.
The 2 car garage (with automatic door opener) provides entrance to the kitchen, making the unloading of groceries easy and efficient, and to the laundry room with washer and dryer.
Once you spend your vacation in this home, you will want to return year after year.

Kennebunkport is a walkable town full of historic homes, museums, art galleries, shops, and restaurants of all types. Fitness and sports activities abound as well as nature walks, excursion boats and sailboats, summer theater and music. Our cottage is in the center of the most idyllic part of the Southern Maine Coast.
Year Purchased: 1977
Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport, Kennebunkport, ME, USA:
The location of and view from this property is unequalled. It is so pretty that you will want to stay beyond the terms of your rental and return from year to year. The cottage was purchased by our mother and father in '77. Both of them went to school in the Northeast, although our father was born and raised in Texas. When we, the Texas offspring, asked our mother "why Maine, why Kennebunkport?" Our mother replied, "there is only so much coast of Maine". She appreciated the value of Maine's beauty, land, sea and culture, long before we children understood the magnitude of the beauty that is the rocky coast of Maine, especially the unspoiled shore of Kennebunkport.. Now, the rest of the world has discovered, is discovering, what our mother did many years ago. We invite you to come discover the alluring coast of Maine from a prime vantage point, this property.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is situated on a quiet, private cul de sac with unobstructed ocean frontage..it is quiet and peaceful. It is conveniently located to several beaches; the paved oceanside walking path (which goes by the Bush estate) and to the delightful Dock Square. It is also minutes away from small gourmet grocery stores and produce stands, bicycle and ice cream shops, seafood shacks, casualand fine dining. Regular chain stores and restaurants are a short car trip away.
