Arundel House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 4.5 baths

Our roomy, authentic 1790 colonial farmhouse is conveniently located within 2 miles of the picture-perfect villages of Kennebunkport and Cape Porpoise with their lively shops, galleries, cafes, and restaurants. Convenient for commuting to Portland or south. The legendary Cape Arundel golf course is just across the road. Our spacious and charming house offers relaxation, comfort, and privacy for families and friends. Beautifully located on 5 acres of fields and forest with a bordering brook.

From our doorstep, you will enjoy the best of Maine's kayaking, sailing, and fishing or a bike ride to the beach or town. Many public trails, scenic back roads, and the nearby Kennebunkport Conservation Trust offer hours of biking or walking pleasure.

Excellent references and security deposit required. We request a two-week minimum during summer months. Please contact me for more information. Thank you.

About Mary Castner

Merrillea Farm was built in 1795. During the 1900s it was run as a dairy farm by the Merrill family until 1952 when it was renovated as a summer home by my parents, Mildred and James Castner of Wilmington, Delaware. My mother's family had summered on Kennebunk Beach for many generations. She moved to the farm to live year-round in 1985, in order to be near her family. After her death in 1999, my sisters and I formed a partnership to preserve the land and buildings in the family for future generations.

Fabulous house and owner!

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but the best to say about this house and owner. Mary is a friendly cooperative and informative owner, and made me feel completely at home here!

The house is HUGE and was immaculate for our arrival...complete with flowers and a bottle of wine!

Away from the traffic of Kennebunkport, but within walking distance! Across from the Cape Arundel Golf Club, where neighbor George HW Bush plays. Lovely walks in the woods right across the street. Horses next door graze in the backyard and add to the scenery.

Much much much country charm in this lovely large home!

WELL RECOMMENDED!!!
