The Cottages at Cabot Cove are 16 cozy abodes that were uniquely designed by different interior decorators, all encircling a lawn lined with beech and fir trees with views of the eponymous cove. But this isn’t a stuffy retreat with a blue blazer dress code. Feeling like a local on the Maine coast can be difficult — especially in the tight-knit community of Kennebunkport, America’s closest thing to an enclave for royalty. The immaculate design of the Cottages at Cabot Cove may fit the area’s tony, secluded tendencies, but the property’s quaint playfulness draws a young professional crowd. Each cottage is cozy but elegant, an effect achieved with bright colors, comfy furnishings and inviting corners with beachy knickknacks. The world outside your door is quintessential coastal Maine: Play croquet on the grounds, stroll to downtown Kennebunkport or have a relaxed dinner in your cottage’s kitchen.
In the Area
Join Captain Rich Woodman for a two-hour sail from Cape Arundel to Cape Porpoise aboard the 55-foot schooner Eleanor. There are three daily departures from the docks at Arundel Wharf Restaurant. Or take one of Cabot Cove’s beach cruiser bikes for a half-mile ride to sandy, quiet Colony Beach. For some eats, enjoy a collection of small plates and live music at One Dock. But if it’s a good roll you’re after, stop by the small, family-owned Port Lobster. And if your cottage gives you the design bug, Spaces Kennebunkport in town is worth a shop-through.
How to Get There
We rented a very cute cottage and it was excellent. It was a lot of fun to have a stand-alone cottage and will definitely bring my whole family back again. This is not for younger children but a place for mature relaxation. Great location and plenty of interesting walking and dining nearby.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The ladies are so welcoming and helpful. A nice half mile or so walk to town or you can eat on your front porch or by the cove. Very clever and healthy breakfast delivered every morning. A very unique, quiet and comfortable place to stay. Windows that open and comfortable bed and furniture.
This is a great place to stay when visiting Kennebunkport. The cottage was small, but very quaint and cozy, with rocking chairs outside the front door. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was close to shops and restaurants. The breakfast bags they hung on a hook outside your door each morning were a delicious treat. We would definitely stay here again.
