A Gem Of A Cottage In Kennebunkport

  • 5 of 5

Recently my wife and I wanted to celebrate both a wedding anniversary and a first date anniversary, and we wanted to celebrate in Kennebunkport. We were extremely fortunate to stay in Quince Cottage. The cottage itself was wonderful - a beautiful example of a New England cottage, surrounded by lovely flowers and including a garden that is a real wonderland of plantings and art. The cottage was impeccably clean inside and very appealing for adults and kids alike. Quince Cottage is also very conveniently located, close to beautiful beaches, fantastic local restaurants, and “The Port” itself – almost too good to be true. My wife and I absolutely plan on returning to Quince Cottage, hopefully for a much longer visit next time. Thank you so much for your hospitality, Linda and Steve – your cottage is a true gem.

A Great find!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at this lovely cottage last week. It is truly a hidden gem... close to town and beaches, super cute and tidy! We'd have loved to have stayed another week this summer... but timing/availability didn't work out. I would recommend this property 110%. Thanks so much, Linda and Steve!

Very charming!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage during the first week of August, it was very nice and peaceful. Everything in the cottage is brand new and very clean. We had everything we needed for the perfect vacation. We were near very small beaches but we prefered to go to the bigger ones (by car). The back yard was very nice and I could sit there for hours(especially in the morning). I will recommend this cottage to all of my friends.
