About Bradbury Chadbourne

We live in Kennebunk only a couple miles from the cottage. We decided to settle in this perfect seaside community to raise our family and enjoy. We spend most of our summer weekends on our boat exploring the coast from the ocean.

Bradbury Chadbourne purchased this cottage in 2015

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was exactly what we needed after a challenging past year. We played, relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed such a cute, clean spot so close to the village and beach! Spotted lots of whales and lobsters on the First Chance Tours which 4 year old Jimi completely loved! Thank you for helping us have a "normal" family vacation!

Fantastic cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

The property is indeed adorable! Its location is great for walking into Kennebunk and Kennebunkport for dinner. The beach is a little further so would require driving or cycling. The cottage was well equipped and we spent a lot of time in the back garden which is large and right on the edge of a forest. The road outside can be heard clearly, but it's never too busy and we regularly sat on the front porch (and the bed is so comfy the road won't disturb you). The location is the perfect mix of peace and quiet with convenience. We even had a family of deer run through the garden!

If I was being super picky I would say that it can be a bit tricky eating in the back garden because the only access is from the front of the house, and the bicycles provided are only really suitable for kids or small adults. But neither of these things took away from a fantastic and blissful stay!

Bradbury was excellent at communicating and we were able to check out late. Thanks Bradbury and Jeff!

The cottage was cute, cozy and perfectly convenient. We loved being able to walk for coffee in the morning and to the beach. The area is so nice and everyone was super friendly. We will definitely be making it an annual family vacation!

Clean, cute cottage in Kennebunk, ME

  • 4 of 5

We really liked that we could walk to restaurants and the shops of Kennebunk/Kennebunkport, which has many great restaurants and coffee shops. The cottage was very clean. There were four of us (2 adults, 2 teens) which might have been too many had we been there for a week, but for the two night stay it was just fine. It would be perfect for a couple. Although the cottage was on a well-traveled road, with fans going in the cottage, it didn't make it hard to sleep. Nice backyard, with table and chairs, and the rockers on the front porch were great to have. I would stay there again! Thank you!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here! The location is ideal. It only takes 5-10 minutes to walk into town. The cottage is cozy and stocked with everything you'd need. The bed is insanely comfy. I'd love to know what kind of matress topper is on it so I could get one for my bed at home! There were only two very small negatives- we had looked forward to lounging in the hammock that was mentioned in the description, but we never found one on the premises. And we attempted to use the bikes provided but they were basicly unridable, they need some serious TLC. Overall, great experience. We would definitely come back again!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and really appreciate the feedback. A new hammock was on order during your stay as the previous one had begun to wear. The new one has arrived and is perfect for an afternoon nap! Speaking of napping, as you point out the mattress is incredibly comfortable, which is just a great mattress (Serta I believe) - not a mattress topper. I will also have the bikes checked out and replaced as necessary. There are also several options for bike rentals very close by if future guests are looking for upgraded or more specific bicycles. Thanks again!!
