PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful historic, beautifully furnished home was absolutely perfect for our family of twelve...three couples and six children ages 3 through 14. There was an abundance of space in which to enjoy private time and allow for naps, but the common areas were perfect for family time. The kitchen was everyone's favorite spot, and meals at home were easy and fun. Sleep was oh, so sweet with comfortable beds and open windows at night! Loved Saint Ann's Church; Parson's Beach; folks at Port Lobster and the lobsters they prepared for our last evening's dinner at home; countless walks to town and back; nightly visits with the children to Ben and Jerry's; and breakfast at H.B. Provisions. There were toys for the children, bikes in the garage, and all the comforts of home. This is NOT your typical vacation rental. We felt we were guests in a friend's home, and the owner couldn't have been more helpful or accessible. If you book this property, you will NOT be disappointed.

FABULOUS HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the "Cup and Saucer House" for a three-family vacation. The only negative to this home was we only rented it for one week and not two! We had a party of 8 (including a two-year old, and a ten-month old). Everything was just perfect! This house is MUCH larger and beautiful than the photos! The large, private back yard was also wonderul! The background for the family photos was lovely!

The bedrooms were huge each having a king bed for our 6 adult couples and there was a crib and youth bed for the young ones! The privacy between the rooms is just amazing! We never heard the little ones once they went up to bed, nor did we hear them in the morning!

One day and evening we had my husbands extended family over and there was plenty of room in the dining room for all to have a "sit down dinner"! There was not only space in the dining room for all but the driveway not only acomodated our three cars but four others from our other family members! And there was still room!

The town of Kennebunkport is just lovely with plenty of resturaunts (Katie provided us with many different favorites of her families, and they were delicious!) Also there are many "nicer" stores to browse and shop in!

The most wonderful thing about this house is that every time we turned the key to walk in, we felt "at home"! Even my two year old granddaughter that was SO excited to fly out there, said she did not want to go home! Our little ones did have a grand time! Katie had a basket of toys in the sun room for them to play with, there were beach toys in the garage as well! There were so many little touches added to this place that each room, it seemed had a nice suprise!

This house is perfect for hosting large family gatherings, so do not be fooled by the photos! It was also very clean and beautifully stocked and furnished if anyone wanted to cook! I would not hesitate to rent the cup and saucer home again! And if you are traveling with young children it is perfect! Or also lovely for wedding parties, or other large celebrations. It also was very clean and all mechanics were nice and up to date! One thing I was concerned about a bit was the lack of central air since we live in Cincinnati where it is very hot and very humid! THAT was not a problem at all! The window fans kept the house so comfortable everyone slept very well! There was even a way to set the temperature of them!

Thank you so much Katie and Paige for your hospitality and sharing this wonderful home!

FANTASTIC RENTAL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful house was spacious enough for at least three families. The large, well-equipped kitchen and beautiful dining room were perfect for preparing and serving meals, as well as entertaining our large group. The gathering rooms were warm and inviting, while the gracious bedroom suites housed our guests more than adequately. Its location was in the quieter part of town, while dining and shopping options were within a block or two. I would recommend this house for families gathering here in Kennebunkport for a wedding or reunion--or just to relax.

OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
When my daughter chose Kennebunkport for her destination wedding, I was anxious about entertaining our friends so far from my own home. This wonderful house provided the perfect solution. It is large and spacious yet warm and comfortable. It combines every modern convenience you need to entertain your family and friends with the charm of one of the oldest houses in the area. A beautiful yet functional kitchen, a dining room that seats 20+, several large sitting areas (inside and outside) and five beautifully decorated bedrooms. My daughter even claimed that the master bed was more comfortable than the White Barn Inn's (the local 5-star hotel where she honeymooned).

This house would be perfect for a family reunion, a large Thanksgiving gathering, Christmas in New England, or just a very comfortable "home away from home" for your family vacation. We used it for a small, get-to-know-the-in-laws dinner party, for our rehearsal dinner which was a lobster bake for 75 in the big backyard, and for a smaller post-wedding brunch. It is large enough to host sizable functions, yet intimate enough to feel like home when everyone leaves. It is also the best appointed rental property I have every seen. When the owner, Katie, told me that all I would need to bring is my bathing suit, she was not kidding. She has thought of everything you will need to feel comfortable living and entertaining in her home during your stay, including toys for the grandchildren! She was also very helpful in pointing us to local people who could help if there was anything else we needed. Katie was wonderful to deal with. She was genuinely excited about having my daughter's wedding weekend in her home, was responsive to every question I asked, provided very clear directions once we arrived about how things worked or various local attractions, and she made sure the property was clean and in good order upon our arrival.

The house's location is also perfect. It is a few blocks from Dock Square so it is an easy walk to attractions, restaurants and shopping, yet far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. And within several blocks there are a number of inns, including the lovely Maine Stay Inn where I housed my 92-year-old mother, my large extended family and part of the wedding party. They were close, comfortable and well cared for but I didn't have to worry about them. My daughter said we had given her a dream wedding. I just hope we can go back for all her anniversaries! Thanks, Katie.

LOVELY VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful home that has been extensively remodeled and updated within the last two years. The pictures do not do it justice at all! It is professionaly decorated throughout with amazing detail! The rooms are all very large and extremely comfortable including the five bedrooms. We were there for a family celebration with eight adults, and loved it!
It's only a five minute walk to the center of town, bay, and restaurants. We played lot's of tennis on public courts, and golf at the town's two semi-private clubs.
The owners are very personable & accomodating, and have done a fantastic job on this recently acquired 200 year old+ home!

IN EVERY WAY, A PERFECT PLACE FOR US!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this home for a week in late July-early August, 2009, for purposes of a family celebration of my wife's "significant" birthday. Eleven family members, including three grandchildren were there. I soon realized that I had made a great choice in selecting this home, after much research of this and other websites. It's a beautiful, well-maintained property. It's very large, and the number of bedrooms, king-sized beds, and nice full baths were unique features and a definite plus. (When you want a little privacy, it's available.) It's equipped exactly as the owner describes.

The house is located within easy walking distance of the Kennebunkport community, which has much to offer, The proximity to town was a definite plus, versus the more remote locations of many alternatives I considered. All enjoyed the freedom to walk to the ice cream store, the shops, the grocery, the waterfront, etc. We found the nearby beach to be perfect, and spent three of our days there. Kennebunkport is also within easy driving distance of other sites. We visited Ogunquit and Camden.

Given that we flew into Boston and Portland (from four cities) we appreciated the fact that the place was so well furnished...with nice bikes, beach chairs, towels, etc.

Finally, I can't say enough about the owner and her interest in our being happy with our vacation. She sent us a self-made guide to restaurants, her source for very reasonably priced "cooked and cracked" lobsters, and many other of her preferences...none of which we disagreed with.
