Have you ever stayed at a vacation property you never wanted to leave? The boathouse in Kittery, Maine, is that perfect place. The spacious ambiance, cook tech savy essentials, convenient location to Portsmouth, Kittery malls, Maine points north, and local foodie favorites minutes away all contribute to the 5 star rating. The property owner greeted us upon arrival with a quick overview of the tastefully appointed and well-maintained property. By far the high point of this rental is the location and views one marvels at from almost every window. The ever-evolving scenes of Portsmouth Harbor and the tides make it worth eating in. We cooked dinners nightly during our week stay, savoring local bakery, seafood, fruit, and sides; a synergy of choices just up the road including Beach Pea, Seaport Fish, and Terra Cotta Pasta Co., to mention just a few. If one is not up to cooking while on vacation, there are dozens of restaurants nearby. Some of our favorites include Jumpin' Jay's Fish Cafe, The Friendly Toast, and Geno's Chowder in Portsmouth, NH, and Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier and The Maine Diner in Kittery and Wells, respectively. Attractions we frequented include Ogunquit and Portland and their museums of art, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Stonewall Kitchen in York, and antiquing, restaurants, and shops in between. We can't wait to return to this perfect place.
