We lucked out with this rental, thank you to whom ever had to cancel because my family scored with this beautiful property. I have 4 children ages 5, 2.5 and 7 month twins. We drove from Toronto to New York, then Boston and ended our 2 week vacation with 1 week at the cottage in Maine. I loved Swan Pond- the water was warm, crystal clean and so serene. My 5 and 2.5 year old had a blast jumping off the floating dock and swimming in the water.
The cottage is very clean and everything you need is provided. We bought soft shell lobster nearby and cooked it one night for dinner...unbelievable!
I loved that with this location we could do day trips to Portland, Freeport, Kennebunkport and Old Orchard beach, but come back to a nice, peaceful and relaxing spot.
I would highly recommend trying Academe restaurant at the Kennebunk Inn, known for its Lobster Pot Pie (featured on the Food Network show “Best Thing I Ever Ate”) and its Lobster White Pizza with Truffle Oil Drizzle (Oprah's favorite).
We fell in love with Maine and would definitely come back and stay at this cottage again.
Thank you to the owners for sharing their wonderful family vacation home!
