About Michael Ketchen

Welcome to Kennebunkport! My wife, Hannah, and I are native New Englanders who each spent many summers growing up in Maine. We now own two vacation properties in the Kennebunkport area and love being able to rent out these homes to guests from all over the country and world. We both work full-time in education and enjoy hiking, cooking, gardening, and playing with our two dogs.

Why Michael Ketchen chose Kennebunkport

There are many features that make this the perfect Kennebunkport retreat! The location is amazing as it is a 5 minute walk to all the restaurants and shops in Dock Square. The layout of the house is perfect for extended family get togethers, featuring a bright modern kitchen outfitted with everything you need to prepare meals, a farm style dining table, and plenty of room for outdoor grilling and relaxing on the 600+ square foot deck. The large living area is perfect for entertaining or just hanging out for a movie night.

What makes this house unique

The large wrap around deck and fire pit area are the perfect spots to enjoy the wooded setting, yet the home is located within a ten minute walk to Dock Square and a two mile drive to the closest beach. Being able to have so many guests sleep comfortably is an amazing feature!

rough start strong finish

  • 4 of 5

Arrived at the house promptly at 3pm following a 9 hour car ride with two small children and had to wait 40 minutes to get in the house. Previous renters didn't check out till after 11:30. While fixing dinner the first night took a stack of dishes from the cupboard and discovered they were covered in old food and grease. Looks like the previous renters just cleared the dinner table and put the dishes back in the cupboard! Cleaning people said the house was a disaster when they arrived.

All four garbage cans in the garage were full to the brim with rotting garbage which the cleaning crew supervisor promised me they would be back on Monday to take away. They never showed and repeated attempts to call them went to voicemail. The supervisor also said they would take our garbage to the curb on Thursday night which I thought was odd we've been renting in K'port for 19 years and have always had to take out out own garbage. Guess who was running four cans and additional boxes of garbage to the curb at 5:30 Friday morning.

NOW THE GOOD NEWS: When told of the problems on Saturday the owner immediately refunded two nights stay no questions asked. The house was huge plenty of room for the 15 of us. The deck was great, spent lots of time out there grilling and just chilling out.The five bathrooms with showers was just plain wonderful. Having everybody getting cleaned up from the beach so we could hit one of the great restaurants was a snap. Probably my favorite feature was the location, I could walk to HB Provisions on the far side of town in 10 minutes to get my morning paper. All things considered I would rent this house again.

Kennebunkport charm

  • 4 of 5

A lovely and spacious home, this rental was very comfortable for our family stay.

Even though we had a bit of a drive to Portland where the wedding was, everyone enjoyed the Kennebunkport locale.

Great spot for a Maine vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Kennebunkport. The cottage was perfect for our three families, enough room for all. The common areas, kitchen, living room were great to get together. And the kids really enjoyed the deck. My favorite was the proximity to Dock Square, perfect for morning coffee walks, or a cocktail before dinner. We’ll be back! Michael, the owner, was a pleasure to communicate with and was very helpful with our questions.

Great location and a great home!

  • 5 of 5

This home met the needs of our stay: twelve grown people requiring enough space and amenities for a long weekend stay without feeling like a can of sardines. There is plenty of space to feel comfortable and enough beds and other amenities for a "stay-cation" feel in Kennebunkport. The fire pit and large porch are great additions to the property.

There were a couple small issues that arose, but I didn't knock the property because it seems like recent remodeling were getting tested by my group. One item that I hope the property manager can put together is a Welcome Book of sorts with basic information, such as wireless passwords and some basic house rules so we are not inconvenient with questions at random times of the day. The owners should also contact Google (specifically Google Maps) because there was confusion by some that this house is actually located at the end of Towne Street, not at the beginning. This is not the fault of the owners, but may remedy issues in the future. Just some ideas that were not problems, but would streamline future stays at this wonderful location.
