Guest Quarters on a 9 acre property just 1.5 miles from Dock Square in Kennebunkport.
A Romantic Vacation Awaits You On Arundel Farm, an historic property just minutes from ocean beaches, Dock Square and the Cape Arundel Golf Course. Dogs Are Welcome!
You'll think you've stepped back in time to an historic village when you visit stunning Arundel Farm. Discover your unique and private guest lodgings on a pastoral 8 acre setting right near the ocean and convenient to all area attractions!
While our historic home was built in 1790, your private and spacious guest quarters are on the entire upper floor of the carriage house built in 2000. Your accommodations include a large, high ceiling living room with cupola skylight, dining area and well equipped kitchen, private balcony with bistro table and chairs. Guest quarters include a lovely, light filled queen bedroom with luxury linens, and spacious bathroom with shower. In the Living Room the Crate and Barrel Sleep Sofa provides extra room for visiting guests. There is also a washer and dryer for your convenience. There are AC units in the master bedroom and in 2016 we are adding Air Conditioning in the main living area (to cool the living room, dining room and kitchen.)
The serene grounds include the historic main house, carriage house, historic 1930s Jelly House, four stall horse barn and natural spring-fed pond and charming gazebo. Enjoy scenic vistas with gardens and stone walls. You may even see horses grazing in the paddock.
Arundel Farm is located just 1.5 mile from Dock Square and all shops, restaurants and art galleries in Kennebunkport and Kennebunk. The property is just a short drive to beautiful Cape Porpoise. For sun and fun, several glorious beaches are right nearby including: Goose Rocks, Gooches, Mothers, Colony and Kennebunkport Beach.
Our property is just around the block from The Cape Arundel Golf Course, a semi-private club along the shores of the Kennebunk River. Book your own tee time in advance and golf where many U.S. Presidents and other dignitaries have played.
The Farm is conveniently located to many other area attractions including Whale Watch Trips, Sailing Trips, Deep Sea Fishing, Horse and Carriage Rides and Horseback Riding, Kayaking, Bike Rentals, Antique Hunting, Summer Theater ... all just minutes form your guest house.
During your stay, remember to take a drive along Ocean Avenue to see the gorgeous homes along Maine's rocky coast. Or, better yet, see the sights by horse and carriage! You can rent bikes at Cape-Able Bike Shop just 3 houses down from our property, so you don't have to worry about bringing your own. Ride to town, beach and all points of interest in Kennebunkport and Kennebunk.
After a busy day, return to peaceful Arundel Farm and enjoy a cool drink on your own private balcony ... or stroll the grounds and relax before you get ready for an evening out on the town. There are an amazing assortment of great local restaurants.
We opened an art gallery in July 2015 on the first floor of the carriage house featuring the works of many local and national artists. If you like, join your hosts Julie and Paul for events please click on the gallery link on our website for schedule.
Besides summertime, visit Arundel Farm in the autumn to enjoy the spectacular foliage in this wonderful New England location. Arundel Farm is just 30 minutes from Portland, Maine ... 40 minutes from Portsmouth, New Hampshire and 1.5 hours from Boston, Massachusetts.
With prior approval dogs are welcome to join you on your very special vacation (limited to 2)
Feel free to call Julie and Paul if you have any other questions about our accommodations. Please note that the carriage house guest quarters are on the upper floor of the carriage house and, unfortunately, is not wheel chair accessible or for those with issues walking up and down stairs.
Paul and Julie have been married for 23 years but still feel like newlyweds. We take pride in our home and want our guests to feel welcome while completely respecting their privacy.
Paul & Julie Feingold purchased this apartment in 2012
Arundel Farm has unusually beautiful grounds and feels like you're out in the country ... while being just minutes from the ocean and downtown Kennebunkport, Kennebunk and all the wonderful activities available. We are 1.5 miles from Dock Square.
We can't say enough about the beautiful setting of our property. There is so much charm with the historic main house built in 1790, the new lovely Carriage House, the tiny historic Jelly House, Pond, Gazebo, and Far Barn all on 9 acres. It really seems like you've stepped back in time. Being on this property is so relaxing and peacefull...and we are so happy to share this special place with our guests.
The two of us, accompanied by our small dog, thoroughly enjoyed our several week stay at this beautiful location. It is truly a unique and scenic property with its well preserved and historic main house, and beautifully maintained surrounding grounds including wildflowers, a pond, and even a horse barn and paddock. The detached Carriage House worked very well for us.
Taking advantage of our central location and our outdoor interests , we walked almost daily to Dock Square in Kennebunkport, and enjoyed several and varied bike routes throughout the Town, and surrounding coastal area. We easily day tripped to explore either Portland to the north, or Portsmouth NH to the south…each only about a half hour drive from the location, and both interesting to visit. .. There are several enjoyable golf courses in the immediate area that we played, and we also explored several local beaches as well.
There is no shortage of excellent restaurants in the surrounding area. We counted no fewer that 20 that we visited and must say that we liked them all .
The Owners could not have been more hospitable. They were both gracious and accommodating, and they made us feel as if we were at home. Thank you both and we look forward to returning.
Great getaway for a couple! Extremely cozy and clean, if you want peace and quiet, it's the perfect place. Authentic old farm feel with the horses grazing nearby! Julie and Paul were everything you hope for in a host.
We stayed in the Carriage House for our 20th anniversary. We are so happy we found this rental! The owners are wonderful and very welcoming, making the rental experience very comfortable. This is a beautiful property and the carriage house apartment is amazing! Very clean and all the comforts of home. We stayed with our 12 year old daughter and our dog. The sofa bed worked great for our daughter. We had plenty of room and privacy. We loved the location - close to everything, yet far enough away to enjoy the quiet country feel. We had a great week enjoying the beach and town, and especially the First Chance Whale Watch. Love the area and truly loved this rental! We look forward to staying here again when we visit, and have recommended it to family and friends who plan to visit. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Wow. We hesitated to write a rave review given we don't want this gem to become unavailable for our future vacations.
Julie and Paul are kind, wonderful, hands-off, accommodating hosts. Good people gravitate to good people. Thus all the positive reviews.
The stay was perfect. Spacious, beautifully and simply decorated, amazing property and ability to come and go as we pleased. No hassle. No fuss.
We brought our old boxer rescue and newborn baby. The washer/dryer and kitchen was key for us. As was the dog-friendly aspect of the rental. All worked out perfectly.
We'd be happy to recommend Julie and Steve and the carriage house to anyone. But you have to promise to keep this lil gem a secret if you rent from them so we can selfishly all reclaim our serenity when we need it by booking without the rental being sold out year-round. Promise?
My fiancée (at the time) and I were looking for a place to honeymoon after our late September wedding that would satisfy our love of the fall and the ocean at the same time. We happened on the Carriage House by chance and felt that we had found our honeymoon heaven. Well we were right!
When we arrived we were met by the owners Paul and Julie who were simply wonderful and genuinely accommodating. The Carriage House was so very beautiful and comfortable that we felt special within its walls. The grounds are impeccably kept and gorgeous and anything we wanted to see was but minutes away. Most importantly on our honeymoon we were able to be alone when we wanted or be in the middle of the beauty that is Maine at our convenience. We were able to ride our bicycles everywhere we wanted to go in just minutes as well. We would recommend this vacation spot to any of our family or friends.
To Paul and Julie
We would like to thank you both from the bottom of our hearts for your huge role in the success of our honeymoon and it was an extreme pleasure to meet such a great couple who work very hard and love living life.
A THOUSAND TIMES THANKS
