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!

adequate, but very, very rustic

  • 3 of 5

there are positives as well as negatives regarding this cabin. first the positives:

1. close to the touristy section of Kennebunkport (>1 mile). which is important as there is little parking available.

2. it's about 2 miles from the Beach Street beach, so you'll need to drive. the good news (and this is very good news) - the owners provide you with a parking pass (otherwise it's $25 per day to park). They also provide beach chairs and an umbrella. nice touch.

3. the kitchen works for minor cooking requirements - breakfast or a simple dinner. we like to have a hot breakfast at home. dinners, not so important - there are lots of nice restaurants within 5 miles - one way towards Kennebunkport; the other towards Kennebunk.

4. the bed is big and comfy.

5. a TV is provided, however you can only stream internet shows (Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc.)

some less than stellar comments:

1. the place is a cabin and a good 30-40 yrs old. Don't look too closely at the molding in the bathroom. yes, we realize a lot of folks don't care, but when you are paying this much for a place, one might expect a bit more.

2. the cleaning fee is excessive. we left the place as we found it, meaning it probably didn't take the cleaners more than an hour to do the necessary things to prepare it for the next guests. this is nothing more than a way to increase the overall charge as the owners did not expend even close to what was charged for cleaning. most of the places we've stayed do not even charge a cleaning fee.

3. as we said above, there is no real TV. meaning you can't watch any news, sports, etc. okay, this isn't super important as it's a vacation home so TV should not be high on the list of things to do.

4. internet - there is no password meaning that your connection is not secure. that's great for catching up on the news and sports and the usual surfing, but if you need to access protected sites, the wifi must be secure. we were able to get a secure line by contacting the owner and getting the password.

5. communication: before we arrived the owners were the best - answered everything in a timely manner. once we arrived, not so much. as we said, we needed the password and it took almost a day to get them to respond. you would think that on day 1 the owners would make themselves available as most issues occur upon arrival.

in a nutshell you are getting just the basics and it's a bit on the shabby side. if location is your primary goal, this is a good place.

We had such a great stay at Bradbury and Jeff's cottage. It was perfect for our family and the location was awesome. They were super accommodating and responsive to all of our questions.

We loved the area and hope to be back soon!
