Kennebunk, Maine, Airbnb Named One of the Best Rentable Beach Houses in America
As summer begins to wind down, the planning for next summer's vacation plans is already being thought about. That tends to be the case in places like Maine, where the summer is often short and sweet.
But when it comes to planning a stay beachside, things can get tricky. Some people prefer the comforts of a hotel or motel, while others would rather have an entire place to themselves. If that's more your style, Maine is home to one of the best rentable Airbnb beach houses in America, according to Conde Nast Traveler.
It's called the Gatehouse, a stunning Cape-style home just a mile from Dock Square in Kennebunk and a short distance from Mother's Beach and Middle Beach. It feels like a classic New England home, with three bedrooms and enough space to sleep six.
If you're going to be named one of the best rentable Airbnb beach houses in America, there's got to be more to it, and there is. The understated deck attached to the home is perfect for an afternoon happy hour or delicious brunch gathering.
The open kitchen is as upscale as you'd expect, and features all the modern appliances necessary to create a feast. The oversized farmhouse sink and open shelving are additional touches that bring extra charm.
Naturally, this getaway isn't going to come cheap. For those only visiting Maine, the price is likely a secondary thought. But even for locals, a chance to visit the Kennebunk area and stay in a cottage that truly feels like home may be too good to pass up.
