Large Summer Home Nestled in Woods - Walk to Beach

Bedrooms 6
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

6 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 12

The Munson Cottage is a unique 100+ year old summer home that has been in our family for three generations. Nestled in the woods, yet only a 5-minute walk to the public beach and breakwater. Dock Square in downtown Kennebunkport is just 2 miles away.

The Munson Cottage has six bedrooms and three bathrooms to sleep twelve comfortably. Linens and towels are provided. There is a working fireplace in the living room, a screened in porch, a dining room, and a full kitchen with an electric stove and an antique propane cast iron stove for heat and cooking.

We rent by the week for the months of May, July, August and September only as it is a summer house with no central heat. Pets are considered on a case by case basis.

Club Munson an A+ experience

  • 5 of 5

This will be year 7 renting the Munson Cottage... I love this house- you feel so at home. Having family from Kennebunkport- this house was a home I have always admired from a far and when I saw it was ar rental I had to jump on it.....

Susan and Chris are true class people to deal with, they make the renting experience a pleasant and very easy one.

I cannot express the words I feel when we pull up in the drive- I just feel so at home.....

The house is always so clean and just nestled enough away from all the hussle and bussle from downtown but a nice walk to the beach

Perfect vacation spot for adults as well as children!!!!

A slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Munson Cottage several times and absolutely love love love it! It s like taking a step back in time.

When we arrived there were bouquets of flowers on the beautiful porch where we spent much time relaxing. There are lots of places to take long walks down to the ocean. I hope to visit the Munson cottage again next year!

Good for children and adults!

A true Maine experience!

  • 5 of 5

Just ended my week at the Munson Cottage and wanted to share my expereince. This vacation was a combination of my 50th Birthday and a family reunion and I couldn't have found and chosen a better location. I wanted to give my family a Maine experience and the Munson Cottage delivered just that. If you are looking for everything new and shiny, this might not be the place for you. But if you are looking for a comfortable kick off your shoes relaxing place to to rest your weary head this is it. The true character of the cottage is over whelming. Down to it's wide board pine floors and the wonderful pull rope windows and the most wonderful screened-in porch. The cottage is really quite large even with 12 people roaming around. Having the 3 baths was a real plus.Plenty of towels and linens. This cottage is well maintained and cared for. Working with the Munsons was an added pleasure. They were very informative and extremely helpful. Thank you Susan and Chris for sharing your lovely family cottage. I can't say enough about Kennebunkport and the surrounding communities. Beautiful! Also would recommend the Kennebunk beaches ( get the week parking pass) or find your way down to Drakes Island beach in Wells.PS the back yard is a great place for a real Maine Lobster bake!
