We just returned from a few days at the Big House in Kennebunk, ME and we already miss the amazing sunrises on the porch with our coffee, early walks on Crescent Beach, the surf lulling us to sleep and awake. We love all the special touches...great table books, family photos, lovely antiques, comfy beds and so many other things that make the Big House the perfect, comfortable home away. The cozy fire pit, outside dining table, lounge chairs and large kitchen table encourage family conversation early and late into the night, the puzzle crowd and game players enjoyed flowing in and out of the great room and other sitting rooms. I adore the floor border, the reading nook and imagining how generations have enjoyed that fantastic, historic room since the 1890's. The view from the dining room is spectacular....every where one roams the view is awe inspiring.. Even with our large family there were always quiet places where one could get lost in a good book. We explored every venue and could not choose which one we loved best. The teens, young kids and the young at heart all enjoyed playing sand soccer, football, making sand structures, surfing, running, beach walking and sighting a beached baby seal returning to his family. We collected memories in a few days that will last for the rest of our lives. We are grateful to have been able to enjoy this paradise found.
