Our wonderful summer cottage has been in the family for 100 years. We are on a pretty lane which dead ends at the beach. The beach at Prouts Neck is one of the most private and beautiful in the world. Our home is very comfortable for parents and children or grandparents and family due to having 5 bedrooms, 4 are upstairs, as are two bathrooms, and one bedroom with en suite bath is downstairs.
Our floors are painted an attractive blue-gray and we have new windows & screens. We don't have or need A/C. This is Maine, by the water!! There is one TV, in our living room. Tons of new and old books in the Dining room/library.
We're a 2 hour drive from Boston. There's an airport in Portland. We're around 15 minutes to Portland and the fabulous Exchange Street restaurants and shops. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to stay at ''Prouts''. We often go to Freeport for shopping at L.L. Bean and all the other great shops, then come home and hit the beach to regain our strength.
Further Details: The hustle and bustle of Old Orchard Beach, and the summerstock theatre in Ogunquit are wonderful fun. We also love going to Kennebunkport, to gallery hop.
