All linens are provided. Beach parking permit is loaned to guests. Beach chairs and beach towels can be borrowed, too! Additionally, guests can borrow our 2 small kayaks. These are 8 ft. in length so they are best suited to river/bay kayaking, not ocean kayaking. We also have 2 bicycles for guest use at no extra charge.
Coffee and tea are also provided in the room along with a fresh fruit basket which is always topped off with home baked goodies! Your fridge is stocked with the ingredients for breakfast at your convenience (english muffins, butter, jams, juice).
The room is on a second floor and has a separate entrance. It offers privacy as it is on the far side of the house. Our guests can also enjoy the garden sitting area which includes a table for dining al fresco. A cozy fire is possible in the fall.
Through the fall and winter months, we cordially invite our guests to relax by the fire in our sitting room along with a complimentary beverage. In December the Christmas tree creates a magical feel. Cross country skiing areas are nearby, the ocean is wonderful in winter. There's great shopping , as always, in Portland/Kittery/Freeport (LL Bean!)

Don't pass this one up; we had 2 wonderful nights here and wish we could have stayed longer. The unit is exactly as pictured, spotless and the owner Kathleen is very pleasant. It is in a quiet neighborhood but close to it all. The little special touches that Kathleen provides makes it even more welcoming. Juice, jam, cookies, fruit etc. We would definitely return here. Thank you Kathleen for a wonderful stay, we could not ask for more.

We really enjoyed this place, it's quiet, clean, not far from the beach
The homemade goodies were delicious.
Every year we go to Kennebunk for a few days, we were really
happy to discover Kathleen's home and we will go back.
“High quality for an affordable price! The deal of the century!!”

This rental not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. We searched high and low to get the best accommodations possible on a reasonable budget throughout the entire Kennebunk-Kennebunkport-Ogunquit area, and after days and hours of searching, we chose this place, and were extremely happy with our choice. I'm already planning my next vacation here! This is a beautiful house that is very conveniently located, only 1 mile from Mother's Beach, and it is clean, beautifully decorated, and includes a ton of amenities. And, it's a bonus that the owner of the house is a studio artist, so you can be assured that the place is aesthetically pleasing! We stayed 2 nights and rented both bedrooms. If you rent both rooms, you get use of the entire top floor of the house, which is all beautifully decorated. In both rooms, we found that the bedding was extremely comfortable, with lovely furnishings, and we were happy that both rooms have coffee makers with coffee and tea!! When you book this rental, you get a free basket of fruit and baked goods, use of toaster oven, coffee maker, refrigerator, beach chairs, beach towels, and toiletries, and more!!!. You even get a free beach pass to Kennebunk beaches!!! The bedding was extremely comfortable in both rooms and there is air conditioning and fans available. And, the owners were very friendly, responsive, and accommodating to ensure needs were met. We got B&B; quality but with more flexibility, and without paying the rates. For anyone who loves high quality on a budget, this is the place for you.
