HISTORIC CAPT CHADBOURNE HOUSE IN-TOWN, NEAR BEACHES

Kennebunk House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

The Captain Chadbourne House is a genuine antique Colonial home. Well-maintained, with numerous original features in spacious, beautifully decorated rooms furnished with charming antiques, this is a one-of-a-kind getaway. The house is a great rental for families or friends. Downstairs is a spacious parlor and foyer that opens to the breakfast room. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms: the Master bedroom and the front bedroom share a connecting bath, and opening from the Master is a third bedroom with Queen bed. The Master bedroom has a romantic 4-poster Queen bed with a cozy pillow-top mattress that has been said to save marriages, and a comfortable sofa. The front bedroom has a handsome antique double bed and a loveseat and wing chair. In the anteroom adjacent to the master bedroom are the appliances and the extra queen bed. Guests have the choice to rent one, two, or three bedrooms. We rent to just one party at a time, regardless of the size of the group. Both the Master Suite and the Parlor have working fireplaces, where a wood fire will be laid for a small fee, or guests can provide their own fire logs.

An ample and delicious 3-course homemade breakfast is served daily in the lovely beamed dining room. Since we only rent to one party at a time, we're happy to tailor the menu to your preferences!

Warren King is Music Director at Christ Church in Kennebunk, and wife Jane is the church secretary and also an architectural historian and researcher. We bought the Captain Chadbourne House because we fell in love with the numerous original Colonial-era features, such as wide plank pumpkin pine floors, Indian shutters in the windows, beamed ceilings, and many fireplaces. We also love to entertain, and the house has wonderfully gracious rooms for guests. We love to cook, too, and we're sure you'll enjoy your breakfasts!

Jane King purchased this house in 2004

We love the beach, and we love small town life. Kennebunk is a beautiful historic New England village, with miles of sandy beaches, and plenty of conveniences such as shops and restaurants within walking distance of the house. Lovely beaches are just 2-3 miles away. Kennebunk is just an hour and a half drive from Boston, located halfway between the historic cities of Portsmouth and Portland. The Portland International Jetport is just a 25-minute drive from Kennebunk, and Portland itself is a lively city full of history and culture, as is Portsmouth NH.

The Capt Chadbourne House is just a mile and a half from Maine Turnpike Exit 25, yet right in the heart of the village, an easy walk to restaurants, shops, churches, parks, the public library, the excellent local historical museum, tennis courts, and the beautiful Summer Street ship captains' mansions which make up a National Register Historic District. The Capt Chadbourne House is on the museum's district walking tour! We're also just a short drive or bike ride to several glorious beaches, which enjoyable in every season.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
The location was a great base for exploring the coast of Maine and seeing some of the lighthouses. The owners were very nice and responsive when needed and really went the extra mile since we couldn't arrive until 11 PM due to flight delays. And the breakfasts were outstanding! We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
The rental was a very homey and comfortable one. The hosts were friendly and gracious. The room was very clean and breakfasts are excellent. The location is very convenient in the heart of the historic district. I have stayed at quite a few bed and breakfast and this was a nice place and a great value. Highly recommended. I hope to stay here again sometime.

Captain Chadbourne House

  • 5 of 5
Everything was as described - great older historic home, well maintained and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The accommodations were nice, but the real stand out was the breakfast we had every morning - delicious, fresh, homemade locale foods. The owners deserve extra credit for some of the best food on our trip. Thanks!

A Glimpse of Maine

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day/night stay in this historic home which was perfect for people who wish to step back in time. The historic homes along Summer Street were enjoyable to view on our morning runs. The location is close to so many attractions, Portland, Freeport (LL Bean Campus), Kennebunkport Walker Bush Estate (my mother-in-law loved going to see it). We ate at a place in Kennebunkport called the Lobster Hut - fantastic for lobster fans. The trip was short, but just enough time to get us to come back to Maine for a longer stay and explore other areas on the coast of Maine. The owners of this B&B were wonderful and the breakfasts were delectable. Happy travels:)
