COZY LOG HOME COTTAGE CHARM! SWIM, BOAT IN LAKE. CLOSE TO OCEAN

Kennebunk House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms comfortably sleeps 7. Bathroom with tub/shower plus outdoor shower.

Step out of the Log Home & experience Maine country charm at its best. Start your day with coffee on the 8x24 foot screen porch. Play a game of badminton or croquet on the lawn. Explore miles of trails behind the house. Within a 5 minute walk you can swim, sunbathe on the 8X8' swim float, kayak (2 available) or fish (rod available). When oceanfront properties are fogged in, the sun typically shines here at Kennebunk Pond, a crystal clear spring fed Lake, just 12 miles inland! Kennebunkport & the beaches in Kennebunk (beach pass provided)are within a half hour drive along lightly traveled country roads past golf courses & antique shops. Consider a Whale Watch Cruise, Island hopping in Casco Bay, miniature golf, casual & fine dining, amusement parks, local live theater, outlet shopping & more End your day back at the Log Home sitting by the fire pit or relaxing on the screen porch listening for the loons on the lake and star gazing - the stars are very bright here in the country!

The closest Lake to the Ocean in Southern Maine is Kennebunk Pond, 1 town west of Kennebunk in Lyman, Maine.....Enjoy the lake AND the Atlantic!! Appreciate the New England scenery... Wander the streets and admire the beautiful, historic homes, churches and village greens..... When you drive, notice how much of Maine is Green. You will have an opportunity to see many pastoral vistas and shop for flowers, fresh eggs, veggies or lobster at any number of local Farm Stands or Farmer's Markets....The Atlantic! In Southern Maine we have dramatic rocky coasts as well as miles of sandy beaches. There are sleepy sailing harbors & bustling working waterfronts. In your travels, make sure you grab an outdoor table for a lunch overlooking the water..... Indulge! Homemade ice cream is always a treat! Or stop in to one of the local Brew Pubs and sample a Maine Summer Ale.....Shop in the many quaint gift stores, bargain hunt in the Outlets or take in an outdoor craft fair and leave Maine with an artisan created keepsake of your vacation in the beautiful state of Maine!

Consider Booking Ahead:

A Chartered Day Sail out of Kennebunkport...........

A dining reservation at the renowned 5 star White Barn Inn in Kennebunk Lower Village...........

Deep Sea Fishing Trip - Catch your dinner & grill it back at the Log Home!...........

Day Spa - from pedicure to massage - Pamper yourself!...........

Tee Times at any of the half dozen area Golf Courses...........

BOATING & FISHING... and GOLFING too!: BOATING & FISHING..... Kennebunk Pond is a wonderfully clean, spring fed lake. Remember, in front of the log home, there are 2 kayaks (& 3 life jackets) for your enjoyment. Feel free to bring your own small boat. There is an easy and convenient boat launch on Kennebunk Pond 5 minutes from the Log Home. Within aproximately a half hour there are a dozen launching sites for either lake, river or ocean boating fun. Mornings and evenings on Kennebunk Pond are perfect for fishing or a quiet kayak excursion. This is the time of day you're apt to see the distinctive red-eyed black & white loons. If you're lucky, you may catch a glimpse of a chick catching a ride atop Momma Loon's back! After the fishermen leave the lake, water skiing/tubing fun begins! Sunsets are spectacular from the water or the dock..................

GOLFING..... There is a golf course 15 minutes away and half a dozen more within a 40 minute drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved the porch & the other places in your home to read, play a game & talk. Along with our teenage son and his friend we swam and kayaked, used the fire pit, played croquet on the lawn, visited Portland & ate fish & chips on the Pier. Billy's Chowder House, Wells Beach (personally I prefer the American steaks, huge & juicy!)Travelling from the Netherlands, a log home is a new experience. We enjoyed our stay!

AMAZING VACATION RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
My family really enjoyed staying at this lovely property in Maine. The home was well appointed and had everything we needed, including coffee, paper towels, beach towels, etc. - you don't find that with most rentals. The gardens and grounds were beautiful, too! Our 11 year old son loved the tire swing in the yard! Indeed just a quick walk to Kennebunk pond which we really enjoyed. We highly recommend this vacation spot!

A BEAUTIFUL MAINE EXPERIENCED.

  • 5 of 5
The property was well kept and family oriented. The pictures were well represented in the experience. From the cabin we were able to go to Boston, Salem, Portland, and more. We came to see the area, and the location of the cabin was perfect. The pond offered swimming and kayaking experiences. We had a bonfire at night, and enjoyed the quietness of the location, but central location for sightseeing. Kathleen gave us information on beaches, and antique shops which were great. The owners couldn't have been nicer, when we left we felt like we were leaving friends. We ate at local diners, Maine Diner, bought seafood from local suppliers (Wolff's), all at a low cost. WOW, what a vacation. Our family would recommend this cabin to our family and friends and anyone going to Maine. It offers something for everyone. A cabin, yet Internet, cable, and all the convenience we have at home. Try the outside shower!

TRULY AS GOOD AS IT GETS!!

  • 5 of 5
This house makes leaving to go home hard! The owners have done a wonderful job and make you feel comfortable and welcomed every step of the way! We have stayed in a lot of rental units in various states, but this house was by far the best, cleanest, and well worth the money. We were renewed by the quiet, secluded location and loved every single minute. While we did plan day trips each day to various locations, we easily could have stayed at the Cabin the entire time and been fully satisfied with our vacation! A great place to stay for some R&R, fun with the family, and it's still close to a lot of Maine's attractions. There was only one thing that could have made it better and that would be a washer and dryer. We vacationed with our 1 year old, and had a hard time finding a Laundromat that was "appealing" enough to launder our clothes. Other than that, this place is truly the best Maine has to offer! Rent it, you won't regret it!

GREAT FALL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
First time in Maine. Amazed at how warm it still was and the lake was still fantastic swimming. House was perfect and comfortable. Had everything you needed. The yard was stunning with beautiful gardens. Used the kayaks provided, the pond was like glass! Decided to go into Kennebunkport to eat and shop and was surprised at how easy it was to get around, especially on a holiday weekend - no big crowds. (Only in Maine!) Also went to LLBeans, now that's an experience! Since we are from the west coast, we decided to take advantage of being in the east and drove down to Boston. Took under 2 hours and we made an easy day trip out of it. Very easy to get into the city and so well worth it! Such history in Boston! We had only one rainy day and went to a movie and to the Maine mall. Highly recommend this area. Lots to do.

FABULOUS VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this lovely house for a family reunion. We had a few nights to ourselves before the gang arrived and found the log cabin to be very fun and also relaxing. We absolutely loved kayaking, swimming (I enjoyed sunning on the pond float), and spending the evenings by the fire outside listening to the loons on the lake! The house was a perfect place for our family reunion! The adults had just as much fun as the kids. Family members enjoyed playing badminton and croquet in the large yard, kayaking, swimming, and biking! The kitchen and outside grill allowed us to cook a delicious meal for everyone. We had such a wonderful time catching up with family and friends as we all sat, mingled, and ate on the porch and in the comfy aderondack chairs. We definitely plan on returning to this great lake house in Maine! Thank you for the opportunity for such a rejuvenating, fun filled family reunion!
