Fantastic spot to spend time with family!

  • 5 of 5

Kate's home has everything one needs to be comfortable and is located on a beautiful piece of property complete with rescued farm animals, a pond and access to hiking/walking trails. Whether you want to go to the beach, Goose Rocks Beach is stunning, or take a bike for a spin, you will have everything you need. The rooms are large and well appointed. Jonathan, the caretaker, brought us fresh farm eggs and was available if we had any questions about the home or the area.

We spent a fantastic week at Kate's place where our three adult children joined us. It was the perfect setting to celebrate two birthdays and an engagement. Cooking and sharing meals together, playing board games and taking day trips, were just a few of the things that made our time at this property special.

Beautiful home on a gorgeous property - kids LOVED those goats!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying here with 3 generations of our family (ages ranging from 2-67). The property itself is gorgeous with a wonderful bank of windows looking out onto the grounds from the main living room/kitchen table. My children (ages 2 and 6) LOVED being able to visit the animals and feed the goats. The location of this house is fantastic! We were so close to Goose Rocks Beach, which is our new favorite beach. We also went to Kennebunk Beach, which the kids also loved. This house is so close to the Kennebunk Land Trust, with so many truly gorgeous hiking trails. Going to the beach was super easy because chairs, towels, boogie boards, and sand toys are all here for you to borrow. There are bikes and helmets to borrow as well. The common area of the house was an inviting and relaxing space for all of us to hang out together, and the rooms all felt private and quiet. The kitchen was perfect for us and we truly fell in love with using the amazing stove. The fresh eggs were delicious. Jonathan was lovely, helpful and very accomodating. The house was super clean. We truly felt so welcome in this charming house which provided us with anything we needed for a very fun vacation. Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality and sharing your awesome property with our family.

A Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

My brother, sister, father and I spent a week at the property. I would say that the online pictures don't do the house justice. It was extremely comfortable and conducive to relaxing family time. Everything was clean on our arrival. Jonathan, the caretaker, provided us with relevant information about the are and even brought us fresh eggs from the chickens one morning. We went to the beaches in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport (where, despite some worry about the crowds, we found parking within five minutes at each place). We also hiked on the trails at the two preservation areas nearby. It was a great week of relaxation.

We had a great vacation here! The house was beautiful, clean, and in a great location. It was very accessible to town, great hiking trails, and the beach. We loved the farm animals too! We would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a great vacation in Kennebunkport.
