Kennebunk welcomes you to the Maine event

Following the Mousam River inland from the Gulf of Maine on the Atlantic Ocean, the idyllic town of Kennebunk is the picture-perfect image of Maine coastal living. First settled in 1621, the charming village, rocky coastlines, and waves crashing on the beaches look like something out of a movie. Together with the neighboring town of Kennebunkport, the Kennebunks are the epitome of the New England simple life. A Kennebunk vacation rental will have you rubbing elbows with a mix of vacationers and locals, and maybe even a former President or two. And of course, there's lobster and blueberries – this is Maine, after all.

Things to do

Your chance to snap the most photographed house in Maine

One visit to Kennebunk's Wedding Cake House, dating from 1825 and adorned with ornate Gothic scrollwork, and you'll understand why it's the most photographed house in the state. Get a taste of local history at the Kennebunk Inn, built in 1799, and the Brick Store Museum, opened during the Great Depression in 1936 and housing exhibits on local history, art, and culture. Head to Kennebunkport to shop in Dock Square and visit the quaint lobster village of Cape Porpoise. Be sure to wave to the Bush family at Walker's Point.

Activities

A bounty of birds, beaches, and blueberries

The Maine coast is world-famous, and a Kennebunk vacation rental is your chance to see why. The sands of Mother's Beach and Gooch's beach are the perfect place to take in the sunrises and crashing waves. Become one with nature at the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, where boardwalks meander through forests, rivers, and salt marshes, creating the perfect setting for unrivaled birdwatching and nature walks. Head to the Nature Conservancy Blueberry Barrens for 1,500 acres of nature trails and blueberry fields, where you can pick your own treats to bring home with you.

Weather

Debunking the myth that winter can't be fun

Kennebunk may see plenty of heavy snows from December to March, but the fun doesn't stop. Though the temperatures may drop below freezing starting in November and lasting till April, holiday celebrations and cozy eateries will have you forgetting the cold (just be sure to bundle up). Kennebunk vacation rentals are in peak demand during the warmest summer months of June to August, when high temps are in the 70s and the weather is perfect for exploring the coast. Fall sees brilliant foliage displays starting in September, so don't forget your cozy sweater and camera.

Natural features

Have you seen Maine's ocean coastline? It rocks!

Rugged rocky outcroppings spring up between beautiful sandy beaches on the picture-perfect Kennebunk coast, where you get gorgeous sunrises over the crashing Atlantic waves. Blueberries are abundant, so get out there and pick. Hugging the Mousam River and the Gulf of Maine, the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge features dunes, marshes, and tidal estuaries that are home to migratory birds, eagles, and falcons, as well as white-tailed deer, mink, and snowshoe hares. The ocean is teeming with fascinating marine life and more species of fish than you could possibly count.
