Wildwood Farm near Goose Rocks Beach
Welcome to Wildwood Farm! This is a wonderful, rustic retreat for families and those curious folks or individuals who are seeking an outdoor nature experience. This property is known in Kennebunkport as Wildwood Farm on Arundel Road (formerly Lester Wildes Road). This is an eleven acre parcel with a Greek revival farmhouse - part of the oldest dairy farm in Kennebunkport. We have a flock of chickens and two excellent mousers - Agamenticus and Suzy. Our home is an elegant and rustic farmhouse that sleeps 6 (4 double bedrooms with full sized beds). There is a fire pit, gourmet kitchen, heirloom tomatoes, fresh eggs, bikes, two ponds and a beautiful walk to conservation trails. The house is full of antiques worn by time and original contemporary art, a wood stove and fireplace are at your disposal. There isn't AC as the house breathes well and the hot days are few. We can recommend the best restaurants, day trips, beaches, wine shops, antique shopping, outlets, spa and bike trail. Also, lobster/crab/champagne can be delivered and cooked for an additional fee.
If you are looking for an idiosyncratic experience of Kennebunkport we have suggestions for that too. We are locals and can also recommend great fishing, boating, swimming, sunbathing, and beaches for children. There are craft fairs, a trolley museum, farmers market, local artists and artisans to visit and new friends to be made.
Extra services like cooking, cleaning etc. will be quoted per request. It's our goal to make your stay terrific.
