It doesn't get more romantic than this!! Tucked away on exclusive Lord's Point, this waterfront cottage overlooks the Cove at Beautiful Kennebunk Beach and is truly a magical, one-of-a-kind spot. And it is featured on the Cover of the August Issue of Maine Home & Design magazine with a 12 page article to follow!!! ( Please see http://mainehomedesign.com/features/slice-of-paradise/ .)
Enjoy waterviews from every window and magnificent sunsets from your own private patio! Listen to the sound of the water lapping against the wall. Two bedrooms with one queen size bed and two twins or one king… both with en-suite baths. Downstairs has built in sofa that doubles as a further bed. The patio is graced by a magnificent outdoor fireplace creating a seaside and starry skied room on a summer's evening -- truly a little piece of heaven.
This gorgeous home is walking distance to Mother's Beach, Pebble Beach, Gooches Beach, the well-known children's program of KBIA, Webhannet Golf Club and Edgcomb Tennis Club! Enjoy all that Kennebunkport has to offer from your own private haven by the sea. A small but magnificent hide-away that offers privacy and memories that will last forever! You will never want to leave!!

About Betsy Coughlan
I have always loved the outdoors, whether it be golf, tennis, biking, kayaking, sailing or swimming at the beach. The location of this home in Kennebunk Beach is second to none, filled with fresh ocean breezes, sunlight and privacy. Every day is a gift as you watch the most spectacular sunsets over the water while sipping bordeaux from your own private waterfront patio. Please 'be my guest' and enjoy the rustic elegance and inherent beauty of this very special home. I have lived and worked in seven cities on three continents around the world. I have been fortunate to have traveled extensively and enjoyed many luxuries in life. And from this, I can so appreciate the uniqueness and serenity that this home and this location offers.
Betsy Coughlan purchased this House in 1994
Why Betsy Coughlan chose Kennebunk
This home is absolutely magical. Facing due west on a peninsula of land, this 'secret hideaway' enjoys the most spectacular sunsets in your own private home by the sea. Listen to the waves lull you to sleep each night, moor your boat outside and relax amidst flowers and stars on the water's edge. With spectacular views from every window, you will never want to leave!
What makes this House unique
Privacy, serenity, proximity to the beach and town, bold, bold oceanfront!

Like all other reviews, it was a wonderful stay. Betsy was a great host! Although my first night it was a crazy windy night and the wind was banging on the windows, my day and night after was wonderful . Sun light and light reflected from the sea glisten into the house !
Loved the location and views/sounds of the sea. Build quality of the home was amazing, and owners super nice. Will stay again!
Beautiful home and area! Restaurants are incredible, easy to get around and everyone is super friendly. We didn't want to leave. It was everything we were looking for in a relaxing week. Thank you Betsy for sharing your heaven with us!
What a beautiful home and setting! We had a very relaxing time enjoying the outdoor living spaces of this incredible home. Walked to the beaches, enjoyed endless sunrises and gorgeous sunsets. A tranquil vacation, can't wait to come back!
The home is beautiful!
A beautiful home in an amazing location. Betsy is great to work with. The home is as beautiful as pictured. We had a lovely time and plan to be back next summer! We miss the sound of the ocean and sitting on the spectacular deck!
We've vacationed in this area for many years and out of all the rentals we've had this was the most spectacular and we had a truly unforgettable vacation! Because the home is right on the water it feels like you're on a houseboat with gorgeous water views in every direction. Lords Point is a small, private road so you're sheltered from the beach activity when you're home but it's a one minute walk to Mother's Beach if you're craving some sand and waves. But honestly, it was kind of hard to leave the deck, which has an outdoor fireplace and the most comfy deck furniture you can imagine. Oh and there's a great table and chairs on the deck as well where we ate many dinners watching the unbelievably beautiful sunsets (the house faces west which is hard to find in this area).
The beds are very comfortable with fine linens, the bathrooms are marble, the kitchen is very well stocked, and Betsy has thought of everything you could possibly need. We rented bikes and it was so much fun to bike up to the tennis club, down to the other beaches, or into Kennebunkport to do a little shopping.
I forgot to say there is a sound system throughout the house that you can control through an easily downloadable app, so you can listen to your music through ceiling speakers in any room or even on the deck! The cove is great for kayaking as well, and Strawberry Island provides hours of tidepool exploring when the tide is out.
The house is just 3 doors down from KBIA-the best childrens' program we've ever come across. It runs for about 8 weeks in the summer and has all kinds of classes for kids: sailing, golf, tennis, surfing, woodworking, art, tidepools-and lots more. It's a fabulous program that all of my kids loved growing up.
Betsy was a perfect host-you can tell she really cares about her guests. She had gourmet pastries, fresh squeezed orange juice and a wonderful bottle of wine when we arrived, and was extremely responsive to every request.
Best vacation ever! We love the Boat House and we'll definitely be back next year! Thank you Betsy!!
Enjoy wonderful leisure activities such as antiquing, museum hopping or strolling in and out of the wonderful Dock Square Shops. Rent a bike and enjoy a scenic tour of the area. Go out on a lobster boat and watch the traps being collected. Or simply stroll the beautiful beaches and breathe in the sea air! There is so much to do here!!!
