Cabot Cove is an idyllic tidal cove fed by the Kennebunk River and the sea beyond. Kennebunkport village, Dock Square, smooth-sand beaches and wonderful restaurants are just a short stroll or bike ride away from our quiet waterside location.

While the attractions of the Maine coast may beckon, you’ll be happy to know that the Cove grounds can easily occupy a “take it slow” vacation approach if you prefer to keep your car keys packed.

Launch one of our kayaks and meander the Kennebunk River. Paddle a skiff about the cove. Circle the Adirondack chairs and gather with travel companions for a glass of wine. Play croquet, practice yoga on “the point,” laze on the dock, fish or catch-up on that elusive novel or confounding crossword.

As dusk approaches, rock or recline on your porch while the cottage cupolas light. Let the wonder of Cabot Cove Cottages surround you.

It’s captivatingly cozy.
