Kennebunkport, Maine is a favorite summer getaway for thousands of vacationers. Each year, they flock to New England's "Vacationland" to enjoy the beaches, lighthouses, charming shops, and top-rate restaurants.
While standard hotels face the issue of adhering to social distancing, a stay at The Cottages of Cabot Cove offers a quaint, private, and whimsical experience.
The property consists of 16 uniquely decorated cottages with gorgeous landscaping and patios overlooking Cabot Cove, an idyllic tidal cove fed by the Kennebunk River and the sea beyond creating a private saltwater playground just for guests.
The cottages are open for the Spring through early fall season so be sure to book your May through October visit early - they book up fast!
Each of the 16 cottages are beautifully decorated by a different interior designer. They vary slightly in size, amenities, and views of the cove and the gardens.
Upon arrival, you are greeted with a hand-arranged basket of fresh baked goods, and sweet Cabot butter and jam. A new assortment is delivered directly to your cottage each day of your stay.
The afternoons bring wine and cheese socials where guests can mingle and plan their activities.
Lounge around the cozy property and enjoy a game of croquet, bocce ball, corn hole, or giant jenga around the stone fire pit. There are board games and DVDs to borrow from the main office should you face a rainy evening.
Kennebunkport Village is walking distance from the property, but The Cottages at Cabot Cove also offer dinnertime shuttles. The town is famous for its boutique shopping, art galleries, and restaurants, as well as the beautiful harbor lined with yachts and lobster boats.
Visitors also enjoy biking, paddle boarding, and kayaking - all of which are complimentary to guests of Cabot Cove.
At a time when New Englanders are feeling tense and pent-in, this charming vacation spot offers an open, airy getaway that is still private and safe.
