Hello all VRBO friends!
My name is Caitlin, and my husband Ben and I would love to tell you about our home at Sand Dollar Lane. We hope you’ll come and visit!
Sand Dollar Lane is located in the famous, picturesque town of Kennebunkport, Maine. Kennebunkport features some of the best beaches, scenery, and quintessential small town living that New England has to offer. Sand Dollar Lane is set back from the road in a beautiful and private wooded setting. However, we are close to it all! Only 2 miles away from where it all happens – Dock Square!! This is where you’ll find most of your shopping, dining, site seeing, and yes, lobster rolls! Sidewalks the majority of the way, make going to Dock Square a pleasant walk or bike ride.
George Bush Sr. and his family spend their summers in Kennebunkport, for obvious reasons. If you want to go see the scenes, his house is less than 4 miles away. We recommend you stop by at least once to see his compound along with the breathtaking views all along Ocean Ave!
Beaches? Yes, please!! You are centrally located between Kennebunk’s Gooch’s Beach (3.4 miles) and Goose Rocks Beach (5.1 miles), so you have options depending on what you’re looking for in a beach. Remember your sun tan lotion!
Ok, back to the house…..as you may never want to leave! Sand Dollar Lane is a custom, newly built, cape style home, with an open layout and high end finishes. The first floor has two living areas. One with a 52” flat screen TV and a large sectional sofa, perfect for watching a movie, or lounging after a long day. All of the TV’s feature a robust channel lineup, including all the fun movie channels. The other living area is a bright sunroom layout with stylish furnishings, a small wall mounted TV, and a perfect setup for gathering together. The kitchen is full of stainless steel appliances, marble countertops, and all the necessities to prepare anything from a small snack to a large feast! You can feast in the dining room that seats six, or spill over into the eat-in, island bar. In the kitchen and dining room, we have provided all types of serving dishes, platters, drink dispensers, and glass pitchers so you can cook and entertain to your stomach’s content! There is also an office on the first floor, where you can shut the door and get any real-world work done (which hopefully, is none!). The office also has a nice day bed for those mid-day naps or additional overnight guests.
Heading up the two story stairwell, you will find a large laundry room with plenty of room to organize, fold, and wash all your bathing suits and beachwear. There are three bedrooms upstairs. The master suite is light and airy with a custom built domed ceiling, cedar closet, comfy king sized bed, and a marble en suite bathroom with a tub / shower combo. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed. The third contains two twin beds that can be pushed together to form a king if that is more appropriate for your use. These two bedrooms share a large full bath across the hallway. All three bedrooms are equipped with wall mounted flat screen TV’s (as you can see, my husband likes his flat screens!) The entire upstairs has a sunny layout that gives you plenty of natural light and views of the wooded surroundings.
Off the dining room downstairs, through the sliding glass doors, there is a sizeable stone patio that is perfect for enjoying the outdoors. We have an assortment of patio furniture, two fire pits (gas or wood-burning), and a weber gas grill for all of your BBQ’ing pleasures. Grill tools and, yes, s’more skewers are included!
There is a large barn / garage where you are welcome to store two cars. We have provided two bicycles and countless games and sporting equipment.
My husband and I love Kennebunkport. We have truly done everything possible to make sure you enjoy it as much as we do. Whether it’s for a family vacation, wedding, girls’ trip, or just a scenic getaway, we look forward to seeing you in Kennebunkport at Sand Dollar Lane!
