About Carole Troy

A former Ct. Resident and A summer resident of Maine every year of my life with deep Maine Roots..Our family owned several cottages and opened the Coffee Cup Restaurant on Peaks Island in Casco Bay, now known as 'The Cockeyed Gull'. I have been a rentor and now I rent out my places.

Maine is the place to be in the summer! Especially on the Ocean!

I started out going to my Dad's summer cottage In Casco Bay most every summer. From there I became interested in acquiring my own place for my family to enjoy. I have experience with being a renter myself having traveled extensively

and continue to do so. I expect a pleasant stay and I choose the best spots that I possibly can stay .Spent years on Sanibel Isl .!

I love collecting seashells,sea glass, fine art ,antiques and I enjoy decorating . My six grandchildren love visiting Maine . I know your family will want to visit you too as the "Cottage" is appealing to all. They won't want to leave!

Don't

miss it for the world. It's the only place to be in the summer! You will be amazed ! Nothing compares!

Carole Troy purchased this estate in 1979

Incredible Beachfront Property

  • 5 of 5

It was our 1st time to the Kennebunkport area. Family and friends came for a reunion. The house was perfect. The home exceeded our expectations. Sea Roses, crashing waves & long walks on the beach. We loved it. We are planning our return visit next year.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with our family.

A Vacation PARADISE.

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing!! We had 6 adults and 4 children. There was plenty of space for all of us. The house is well maintained and clean. It has everything and everything went smoothly due to the welcoming owner. The home has views that are EXTRAORDINARY!!!!. We can't say enough as words cannot describe the beauty of the area. Walking the long sandy BEACH is a delight to the senses and our family went home relaxed and rejuvenated. We had a great time and made many memories!!

Thank you!!

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

This location is not your typical or average place to stay. This is a truly unique property and the area is delightful. The home is immaculate and has everything you could want for a vacation a home away from home. Amenities include a wonderful eat-in kitchen, multiple bedrooms, parking places for several cars, and wonderful yard. You can see the ocean from every room! The owner takes excellent care of property and grounds and makes the process of renting go smoothly. The place and surroundings are the best in all of southern Maine. It's views are awesome . We particularly liked the sea life. There is nothing better than watching the lobster boats go out in the early a.m. will enjoying a cup of coffee in the kitchen, and then sipping a glass on wine on the deck while watching them come home. Walk to a wonderful clean beach. Lots of things to do in the area: antique, shop, great restaurants, if you can bear to leave the oceanfront property!!
