CHARMING FEDERAL HOUSE ORIGINALLY BUILT IN 1765

Kennebunk House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 12

Perfectly located 1 mile from the beach. Steps from the town. River cove in the back yard. Enjoy watersports, hiking, walking, biking and more. Relax on the back porch in the rockers, listening to the bubbling fountain. Play Frisbee or badminton on the lawn. Walk the nature trails along the Kennebunk River on the property of the nearby Franciscan Monastery.

Enjoy a cookout after a day of paddling the river and coves on one of our 9 kayaks (including a double) or our canoe. We have picnic benches and tiki torches. Six bikes are available for a short ride through the town or longer bike hikes throughout Kennebunk. Ride past former President Bush's family home for spectacular views near Walker's Pointe. Take a sunset walk along the sandy beach while you look for sand dollars.

Loaded with extras at no extra cost. 6 bikes, 9 kayaks, 1 canoe, boogie boards, and beach chairs.

Restored Federal home: Originally built in 1765. This house retains many original features of the time such as wide pine flooring and paneling, but is complete with modern conveniences.

Ideal for an active family.: Launch our kayaks from the back yard into the cove. Paddle up or down the Kennebunk River. Take an early morning jog to the beach and back. Explore the town by bike. Ride up to Walker's Pointe, the summer home of former President Bush, for spectacular views and photos. Golf at semi-private Cape Arundel golf course where the Presidents play.

Enjoy a day of shopping: Visit our friendly shops loaded with the unique gifts you are looking for. Stop in for a cool drink at the beer pub or one of the many casual restaurants or bars throughout the town. Enjoy a lunch of fried clams and fries al fresco by the bridge. Wash it down with fresh squeezed lemonade. Take a carriage ride through the town of Kennebunkport. All within an easy walk from our house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really like the dock that is now in place. It really helps in getting the canoe and kayaks in and out of the Kennebunk River. As with prior visits to Maine, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the house's location with its proximity to Kennebunkport. If offers a short walk to the Clam Shack for a lobster roll and the shops to the village. The beach is close by as well.

Having Capt. Hooks for seafood and Big Daddy's for ice cream a short drive away in Wells is another big advantage of staying at your property. Being a golfer, having ready access to great golf courses like Cape Arundel and Webhannet is another great feature.

Needless to say, our Maine vacations have been a wonderful life experience for us, our children and their spouses and especially the grand kids.

Perfect location. Quick access to the highway and just a 5 minute walk to town where you can get your morning coffee and shop at local stores. The beach is just a few minutes away!

Spaceous rooms and a beautiful front porch to sit and relax. We played football and frisbee on the big backyard and jumped on the kayaks since there is a backyard access to the lake.

the big yellow house

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived the kids could not wait to get out of the car and enjoy the huge backyard. They quickly checked the garage to see if all the 9 kayaks were still there and all the bicycles we use each year. Our week was filled with wonderful memories of sitting on the large porch, kayaking on the kennebunk river, surfing at the beach, and enjoying the many meals that we prepared in the great kitchen (and a few at local restaurants as well!). We look forward to this week each and every year. We were NOT disappointed this year, it was as wonderfu as ever!!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family has a triennial reunion which we combined this year with a wedding. Three families stayed happily and comfortably in this home (6 bedrooms). It was great for kids of all ages since it was well stocked with board games, videos, kayaks and bikes. We walked into town and to the beach. Great value!

Perfect Place for a Family Vacation/Reunion

  • 5 of 5
This rental can clearly be classified as a "Home away from Home." The home is perfect for a beach get away and has LOTS of space to spread out. Very clean, well-maintained and decorated. The rooms were so nice it was hard to decide which room to sleep in. (Lots of bathrooms too) Walk down to the beach or into town (just steps away from a truly wonderful shopping experience. Lots of cute shops and restaurants. Then go back and enjoy the very large back yard with a cookout. Kids can play on the swingset and then enjoy drinks on the back porch with lots of room to relax (I think at least 7 rocking chairs) and listen to the beautiful fountain trickle in the background. Another thing we enjoyed doing was taking the kayaks out (access from the back yard) or take a walk down to the dock at the end of the road. My husband enjoyed throwing a fishing line in the water in the early morning and after dinner. We also took a few day trips to see some nice port towns and lighthouses. When you go home you will be totally relaxed. The owner was great at answering any questions before the trip (very prompt). We highly recommend this property--great for a few families to go in on.
