Three generations under one roof for a Week in ME

We knew this was either going to be a really good idea or not so much. Renting a big house and inviting three generations of family, parents, brothers, sisters, cousins and close friends for a whole week together. What if it rains?? Well it did half the time and my family had a great vacation at this house. Not super close to the beach but definately within walking distance. Kids loved the the ice cream parlor and we loved the small town feel. Nice to be away from the noise of OOB. The house was great for any kind of weather, big and beautifully decorated. We were at full capacity all week and no one ever felt crowded, plenty of space and TVs/games to scatter about on a rainy day. The kitchen and dinning room were great for cooking huge breakfasts. The house had 99% of everything needed (all the little things you bring "just in case", were already there). While there, we rented fishing poles at Camp Ellis, (right down the road) and fished. Kids loved swimming at the sand bar. We did the OOB thing. Thursday night fireworks, Funtown/splashtown, batting cages and mini golf. Kennebunk Port shopping trip and dinner at Peir 77 rest. in Cape Porpoise (worth the drive) Lots of fires, cookouts & smores in the back yard. Singalongs and dancing = Blender got alot of use. Big yard for wiffle ball games, Bogie boarding, shell collecting, morning runs on the beach and afternoon naps on super comfy beds. Happy hour on the beach (shhhh) The best part: We didn't have to kennel our pug, Diggy, he loved the beach too. We should have rented for two weeks!!
