Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to write you a quick note to say thank you very much for renting the Bait Can to us.

My friends and I had a wonderful weekend there!

The weather was gorgeous and everything about your lovely cottage was absolutely perfect!

We loved the location, the cleanliness, the true cottage feel to the place, and all the thoughtful touches throughout.

While this weekend was a girlfriends getaway, we all took note of the legos & crayons & easy walk to the playground & beautiful beach, should we return someday with our families.

The outdoor shower was a big hit, as was the deck - perfect for morning coffee & just as perfect for a late afternoon glass of wine :)

We trust that Dan found everything to be in order upon our departure.

Thanks again for your cottage. It is a very special place!

The Bait Can is owned by five sisters who inherited the property from their parents in 1993. Our summers growing up were spent in this wonderful house. The house was built by our great grandfather in 1922 as a wedding present for his fourth child, our grandmother.

Margy Hall purchased this house in 1922

KBIA (www.kbia.org) offers a wide variety of children's activities and programs, and is located just a 5-minute walk from the house - next to the beach.

Check out local favorites - Nunan's Lobster Hut and The Wayfarer in nearby Cape Porpoise, Merryfield's for berry picking, the Lobster Company on Rt. 1 in Arundel for fresh (cheap) lobsters and seafood, Cape Arundel Golf Club (where the Bush's play), Rachel Carson Nat'l Wildlife Refuge, great outlet shopping in nearby Kittery and Freeport (home of L.L. Bean).

THE BAIT CAN IS A CHARMER

  • 5 of 5
The beach house was in a great location, with the beach just a short block away. While the house was charming, it had some problems, like doors that didn't open or close easily and smaller than expected bedrooms. However, the beaches, Kennebunk Port, nearby nature preserves, and lots of beautiful scenery made the problems seem minor. I would definitely recommend to friends and relatives and hope to return in the future.

Owner's Response: Dear Bonnie, We plan to have the doors worked on over the off-season, particularly that one on the upstairs bathroom.... Thanks for the constructive comment. Can't do much to enlarge bedrooms. I'm glad to hear that these were minor issues compared to your overall experience at the Bait Can.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
The Baitcan was perfect! It exceeded our expectations. We had 6 adults and 6 kids from 2.5-14 yrs. The house had plenty of room to fit all of us comfortabley. Nice deck and yard to hang out on after a long day at Mother's beach. Outdoor shower was great.

PERFECT BEACH VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented the Bait Can to celebrate our 40th anniversary with our three adult children, their spouses and three grandboys, 2 1/2, 4 and 8. The location was wonderful since we could walk to the beach. The house was a true beach cottage, well equipped and cozy. Margy and Dan were very helpful with all our questions. Mother's Beach is great for small children and adults as well and we were especially lucky to have warm water to swim in. Hope to return again.

THE PERFECT SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
It doesn't get any better than this.
The location is great. You can hear the ocean, and see it from upstairs.
You are literally 4 houses from Mother's beach.
Inside the house is truly a typical, old style, beach house, but lovingly maintained.
It is so well equipped that all you really need is your bathing suit, toothbrush and food (maybe a bike would be handy).
Can't wait for another visit

BY THE SEA, BY THE SEA, BY THE BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL SEA.....

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Bait Can recently. The youngest member of our family is 2 and the oldest 102. Margy and Dan were wonderful with all of the arrangements. The Cottage is so charming and the smell and sound of the ocean surrounds you. We walked to the beach everyday and enjoyed our stay immensely. The house is clean and comfortable and beds very comfortable. We will return time and again. Thank you Bait Can for a family get together we will never forget. We also brought our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who was in seventh heaven with her daily walks by the sea...
