We welcome the chance to share our cottage with you at Goose Rocks Beach. GRB features 3+ miles of warm, sandy beach, beautiful green marshes teeming with birds and a quiet, laid back atmosphere, yet is still only minutes from the fun at Dock Square in Kennebunkport. The cottage is easily accessed from Route 1A, I-95 and Portland. Enjoy a cup of coffee on one of our decks or stroll to the general store for supplies and then on to the beach for hours of lazy beach combing. There are tide pools and off shore tidal islands to kayak to. Our cottage is tiny but comfortable for five guests and provides access to one of Maine's most exclusive beach front communities.
UPDATE: We recently completed major renovations on the cottage including panoramic windows overlooking the marsh, installing shiplap throughout the interior, three built in "nook" beds in the sleeping loft and a new loft ladder, kitchen and shower.

About Mary and Sean McNelis
We are the McNelis family from San Antonio, Texas. With relatives in the Kennebunks, we are regulars to the Maine coast in the summer months. We are excited to finally have our own place to call our home-away-from-home in beautiful Maine.
Mary and Sean McNelis purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Mary and Sean McNelis chose Goose Rocks Beach
Goose Rocks Beach is the best kept secret in the area. We love the beach, love the neighbors, love the lobster and the marsh. Its a piece of paradise! Goose Rocks Beach is off the beaten path but has unique amenities like the chic and delicious Tides Inn, the General Store where you can find all those last minute goodies you forgot and the Goose Rocks Community Center which offers tennis and wonderful summer programs for kids and adults alike. And don't miss Goose Rocks Creamery across Rt. 9 - best ice cream in S. Maine!
What makes this Cottage unique
UPDATE: We recently completed major renovations on the cottage including huge panoramic windows overlooking the marsh, installing shiplap throughout the interior, and a new loft ladder, kitchen and shower. The beach provides hours of fun for the family and changes with every incoming/outgoing tide. We are only minutes from Kennebunkport and the fabulous restaurants, shopping and ambiance the area has to offer. The cottage is more private than many of the houses in GRB because it is surrounded by 3+ acres of marsh and wetlands.

The Perfect Spot
Our family had such a relaxing time at the cottage. It couldn't have been more perfect. It was so close to the beach and a wonderful selection of restaurants. Our kids loved the loft area and spent much of their time tucked away up there. We can't wait to go back.
Thank you so much Lisa. Please come back and see us!
Summer on the marsh.
Cottage was cozy and clean. Beautiful views of the marsh! Very quiet with no neighbors on either side of the cottage. Enjoyed kayaking off of the access in the backyard. Short half mile walk to the beach. Beach was never very crowded and very family friendly.
Really enjoyed our stay!
Thanks Mark, we are so glad you and your family had an enjoyable stay.
We had a great week at the cottage. It's relaxing to be by the marsh and only a short walk from the beach.
Great Place to get away!
Very private location on the marsh a short walk from Goose Rock Beach.
