Kennebunkport vacation rentals

Kick back in Kennebunkport

Kennebunkport is undoubtedly one of the highlights of Maine and Kennebunkport vacation rentals are perfect for making the most of this charming seaside town. The beautiful beaches, such as Kennebunkport Beach and Colony Beach, provide the perfect opportunity to bask in the sun or take a romantic stroll. Once you’ve finished working on your tan, head into town to browse the many art galleries, or visit the sleepy village of Cape Porpoise to watch the fishermen bringing in their catch as the sun sets.

Discover the best of the Atlantic Ocean in Kennebunkport

Head out to sea and enjoy one of the many activities on offer. Most visitors will enjoy indulging in the local specialty of a lobster roll or two, but go one step further by taking a lobster tour and discover how these delicious crustaceans get from the sea to your plate. If you feel like fishing, there are many companies offering private angling charters. Make time to visit Dock Square in the town center, where you can enjoy a delicious dinner in one of the restaurants, and browse independent boutiques for gifts and souvenirs to bring back home.

Uncover the history of Kennebunkport

After settling in one of the many Kennebunkport vacation rentals, get your shoes on and head out to explore! One of Kennebunkport’s most popular attractions is the beautiful St. Ann’s Church. Built in 1887, it features stunning architecture and 25 beautiful stained-glass windows, as well as gorgeous gardens and views across the sea. There are family-friendly museums in Kennebunkport which are well worth a visit, too. The Seashore Trolley Museum is the largest electric trolley museum in the world, with trolleys from cities across the U.S. and the world, but the highlight has to be riding a historic trolley through the forest.

Visit Kennebunkport for a superb summer getaway

Being fairly far north and on the coast, Kennebunkport can get quite chilly, especially in the winter when temperatures drop to an average low of 12°F. The best time to visit is during the summer when you can take full advantage of the outdoor activities on offer. June through August provide the most pleasant temperatures, hitting highs of around 76°F in July. Fall is also a lovely time to book Kennebunkport vacation rentals, though. The mercury tends to hover around the 50s in September, so you can enjoy favorable weather with fewer crowds.

Hike through the gorgeous landscape of Kennebunkport

The coastal position of Kennebunkport provides gorgeous panoramas and a diverse habitat where wildlife thrives. The Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge is the perfect place to connect with nature and see Maine’s wildlife up close. Hiking trails take you through forests, woods and marshes, and you’re likely to spot any number of curious creatures such as cottontail rabbits and saltmarsh sparrows. To see some of the most majestic creatures of the Atlantic Ocean, book a trip on a whale watching tour. They run from May until October, and you’ll get to see various species of whale, as well as dolphins.
