Started New Year, celebrated Anniversary in Kennebunkport.

  • 5 of 5

Pat and I , as well as our Labrador Sofie, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Relaxing view of tidal marsh, frozen over, and evening walk on Goose Rocks. House was just right, and roomy for guests, which we might try another time. Usually we stay closer to Dock Square, but had no trouble getting around and enjoying the snowless New Year. We were right on one of the access roads to Goose Rocks and could imagine walking to the beach from the house, if it were a bit warmer. As it was parking was not an issue. We always like one breakfast at the Maine Diner in Wells, a walk at the Rachel Carson Reserve on Rt. 9, and a special treat this time was dinner at White Barn Inn, which lives up to its reputation. Directions for leaving were easy to follow and not a burden. Many thanks! We hope to visit again....

As always, a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

It's now our go-to place in Maine and we had a great time even though it poured buckets for the two days we were there. Close to all the local activity in Kennebunkport, Portland, etc. but tucked away on the edge of the Rachel Carson Wildlife Preserve, so private but not isolated. Nice and cozy with a great view of the wetlands right out the window. Can't wait to come back. Thanks Bill for a great time!

Kennebunkport Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This home was spotless when we arrived, i was so impressed. It's a very happy place, decorated sweetly and just a nice bright home that gave you a warm feeling when you arrived. The owners were very accommodating and I would definetly recommend to a friend. It's in a good location, close to all the Kennebunkport restaurants and activities. Thanks so much for letting us rent your place!

Perfect Peaceful Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in March. The weather was perfect- 40-50 and sunny. The cottage is really cute, and perfect for us and our two dogs. It was well kept and clean, although a few things need some attention (kitchen cabinets, some outside trim). But those didn't affect the peaceful serenity of our surroundings. We spent the afternoons playing games at the table enjoying the view of the marsh. The dogs loved exploring in the back and we could watch them from the porch. It is a little closer to the road than it looks, but there was not too much traffic. Kennebunkport was a short drive away and the owner was nice enough to send us some ideas on restaurants/things to do. Would definitely stay again!

Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

This is the 4th Rental home that I've rented and I also rent my own cottage. This is the worst experience I've had. It was all the little things that added up to me not recommending this place unless it is your last option. This shower had a hole in the base of it, the kitchen cupboard were falling off. I was surprised that linens were not provided as this is the first place I've ever seen this. I was also a little surprised at the cleaning expectations. I've never experienced this, nor would I as a property owner expect my customers to clean to the level that was expected. The location of the place is great, and we loved that... It was simply all the little things made me feel like I was taken advantage of given the price I paid.

A House on the Marsh

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this beautiful house & it was wonderful! The house is just a short walk or drive to Goose Rocks Beach- a lovely beach for walk. The bay window looks out at a marsh & is so restful to look at. We saw many birds during our stay. Being on a side street, the house gives privacy to renters during their stay. The owners are an e-mail away & appreciate hearing how the house is. We're looking forward to staying again next year!

The Southern Maine Coast has much to offer in addition to pristine beaches - scenic drives, lighthouses, antiquing, outlet shopping, active pursuits, a rich history, and plenty of classic New England charm. Goose Rocks is a quiet area of Kennebunkport featuring a three-mile beach, General Store, wildlife habitat, and spectacular views. Kennebunkport Village (5 miles from Goose Rocks) offers fine dining, boutiques, and more. Kittery (outlet shopping) and Portland (Maine's largest city) are each only a 30 minute drive away.
