About Heyward Whetsell
What are 2 empty-nest Southerners doing in Maine? Absolutely loving it! The Oliver Davis House is our retreat, and through the years many guests have enjoyed 'the way life should be.' We love gardening, antiqueing, entertaining, picnics on the beach, and walks along the ocean. And spending time with our kids and friends when they come to visit.

Why Heyward Whetsell chose Kennebunkport
The Oliver Davis House is a beautiful small historic home that retains its charm while offering every modern convenience and comfort. Located in the heart of Kennebunkport, it offers something for everyone--an easy walk to Dock Square or the ocean. The house is decorated with antiques, but it's stylish, not frumpy. Luxurious, but not over the top. It's a place where you can get back to basics.
What makes this house unique
The private garden at the Oliver Davis House is a major attraction in summer. Designed in a traditional style that complements the period architecture of the house, the main part of the garden is filled with hydrangeas and offers the perfect spot for afternoon cocktails. There's a separate patio with a fountain for al fresco dining, and a small intimate space reserved for naps in the hammock shielded by espaliered apple trees and woodsy ferns, rhododendrum, lilacs, and Japanese maple. The gently sound of wind chimes blowing in the breeze make the garden even more relaxing. Equipped with gas grill, fire pit, torchieres--the garden at the Oliver Davis House doubles our living space and offers a wonderful seasonal option to enjoy the outdoors in summer and fall.
