About the property

3 BR Cottage, 2 Bath plus outdoor shower, Sleeps 7

Charming airy cottage off Beach Avenue on a quiet dead-end street in Kennebunk Beach, yet is only a 5 min. walk to dock square in the center of Kennebunkport. Lots of windows to enjoy the breeze, high bedroom ceilings and a comfortable layout (living room/kitchen/eating area is one open room). Kennebunk Beach parking permits included. Outdoor shower, picket fence around backyard, Weber gas grill and private patio. Washer/dryer plus two full bathrooms (one with a tub). Perfect for the family looking for a peaceful location off Beach Avenue that is an easy walk to town (1/3 mile to Dock Square in Kennebunkport), riverfront walking trails (1/4 mile) and the beach (3/4 mile to Gooch's beach). New kitchen: dishwasher, stove, counters, cabinets, sink and floors. Wi-Fi and cable.

Charming Cottage - Walk to Beach and Dock Square in the Port

Perfectly charming cottage :)

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Rob's perfect cottage!

Rob was wonderfully hospitable. He very thoughtfully left all the lights on for our late arrival! A first for us :)

The cottage is clean and well maintained. Its best attribute is its simplicity!

The location is wonderfully quiet, while still being close to town and a lovely walk to the beach.

Thank you Rob! We really enjoyed our stay at Mere cottage. It was perfect!

Girls Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at Mere Cottage. We love the house, the location, and the privacy. Although we experienced a few hiccups this time around, Rob went out of his way to make things right. Pleasant walk to the beach, and a stones throw to town.We were able to get in some biking, running, and swimming (sometimes all in one day!) Kenneybunkport is a quaint little town with lots to offer. Even went to Vinegar Hill for a performance one evening. Mere Cottage is a great place for a reunion with friends or family.
