Kennebunkport in southern Maine has been a popular seaside destination for a long time. The sandy beaches are a major draw in the summer, but this town is seaworthy year round with its quaint downtown of shops, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants, gorgeous Fall foliage, and light-filled Christmas Prelude.
And for the quintessential Kennebunkport cottage experience, reserve yourself one of the sixteen Cabot Cove Cottages. These cozy, comfy and elegant abodes are situated on pristine grounds right by a cove. Each cottage is decorated by a professional designer with plenty of beach decorations to give you a true getaway feeling.
So let’s step into one of the cottages with Anita who writes a food blog called Hungry Couple. She and her husband couldn’t resist either the size or the location of the Harbor Cottage (which is cottage number 10). It is the largest cottage (and most expensive), located at the end of a sea shell lane, with a sweeping view of the cove.

Goose Rock Beach is one of several beaches in Kennebunkport. It’s a smooth sandy beach that’s also an ideal location for Seashell and Sand Dollar Hunting. And if you’re up for a little adventure, you can rent a kayak and explore the surrounding islands.

And as you probably know, Kennbunkport is the location of the Bush family summer estate.
Kennebunkport was voted by HGTV as the number two Christmas town in America. I think Bob’s photograph shows why. They call it Christmas Prelude. To enjoy the seasons of Kennebunkport Maine, check out Bob’s Kennebunkport Calendar 2015!
And while in Kennebunkport, make sure to stop by the Beach Grass Shop on 28 Dock Square on the Port Walk -it’s filled with beachy goodness!
