Charming airy cottage off Beach Avenue on a quiet dead-end street in Kennebunk Beach, yet is only a 5 min. walk to dock square in the center of Kennebunkport. Lots of windows to enjoy the breeze, high bedroom ceilings and a comfortable layout (living room/kitchen/eating area is one open room). Kennebunk Beach parking permits included. Outdoor shower, picket fence around backyard, Weber gas grill and private patio. Washer/dryer plus two full bathrooms (one with a tub). Perfect for the family looking for a peaceful location off Beach Avenue that is an easy walk to town (1/3 mile to Dock Square in Kennebunkport), riverfront walking trails (1/4 mile) and the beach (3/4 mile to Gooch's beach). New kitchen: dishwasher, stove, counters, cabinets, sink and floors. Wi-Fi and cable.

Great cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay at Rob's cottage. It was clean, comfortable, and we had everything we needed for the week. Above all, this is the best location in the Kennebunks...a quiet dead-end street, an easy walk to the beach, and an even easier walk into Kennebunkport.

Walk to town and beach!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mere Cottage. The cottage was very clean and is in a great location on a quiet side street still in walking distance to the center of town and the beach. We will definitely look to stay at the Mere cottage in the future!

Perfectly charming cottage :)

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Rob's perfect cottage!

Rob was wonderfully hospitable. He very thoughtfully left all the lights on for our late arrival! A first for us :)

The cottage is clean and well maintained. Its best attribute is its simplicity!

The location is wonderfully quiet, while still being close to town and a lovely walk to the beach.

Thank you Rob! We really enjoyed our stay at Mere cottage. It was perfect!

Girls Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at Mere Cottage. We love the house, the location, and the privacy. Although we experienced a few hiccups this time around, Rob went out of his way to make things right. Pleasant walk to the beach, and a stones throw to town.We were able to get in some biking, running, and swimming (sometimes all in one day!) Kenneybunkport is a quaint little town with lots to offer. Even went to Vinegar Hill for a performance one evening. Mere Cottage is a great place for a reunion with friends or family.
