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).

Fan of the Bait Can

  • Submitted: Oct 6, 2013

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!

Great Vacation Week at the Bait Can

  • Submitted: Sep 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
The Bait Can was great! Everyone loved the house. We really appreciated the large living space (dining room, living room, sun room) the proximity to the beaches and the 3 bathrooms – with these everybody could quickly take a shower when we got back from the beach without having to wait too long (last year we had rented a place with a single bathroom and that had been an irritant). Everyone also appreciated having their own rooms. It is also very nice of you to provide all possibly imaginable accessories such as beach towels, detergent, surf boards, etc. The Kennebunk beaches were great also. Just too bad the weather was so so (2 days sun, 2 days grey, 2 days rain). But the kids had fun anyway and we relaxed.

The Bait Can is a charmer

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 22, 2012

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.

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.
