82 Ocean is located on the Kennebunk River with beautiful water views from the front wrap around porch, the perfect place for afternoon happy hour and cocktails before you and the gals walk to Dock Square for dinner. The modern gourmet kitchen overlooks a quiet tidal cove, this is where you and your girlfriends will gather each morning for coffee and breakfast by the see thru gas fireplace.

The River Room and Kennebunkport Room offer queen beds, and a Trundle room off the Captains Quarters has two twin beds. The house can sleeps 12 ladies, but is ideal for five or six if each lady wants her own private bedroom. With five baths, and hair dryers in each, we aim to provide every amenity. Beds are made freshly upon your arrival with high thread count sheets, towels are provided, and upon check out, our housekeeping will clean the house.
From 82 Ocean you can walk the Dock Square’s shops, art galleries and great restaurants along the waterfront. You can also walk up Ocean Ave to the Breakwater Spa for spa treatments, or use of their fitness facilities that offer a fantastic view of the Kennebunk Rive and out to sea.
For outdoor adventure on your girl’s getaway, you can walk to local marinas for canoes, kayak rentals, and stand up paddleboards, or get aboard a charter lobster boat or sailboat for a few hours aboard the Pineapple Ketch sailboat, the Rugosa Lobster Boat tour. If you gals want to fish, The Libreti Rose can be chartered for a private fishing expedition. All of these boats leave from the Nonantum Resort at 95 Ocean, just 100 yards from our rental house. For a sunset cruise on your own private boat, the Porpus is a great choice, The Captain will take you, a group of 6, out past Walkers Point and the Bush Compound to Goat Island Light while you enjoy your own wine and cheese, this boat leaves from David’s at the Boathouse Waterfront.
One of the simplest pleasure is long walks on Ocean Ave, from 82 Ocean a walk to Walkers Point, home of President and First Lady Barbara Bush, is scenic along the seaside on sidewalks the entire way. Colony Beach is just ½ mile from 82 Ocean, a great beach for sunbathing in summer, and watching the yachts and lobster boats cruise in and out of the breakwater year round. There are other beaches just a short drive away, and we provide a free Kennebunk Beach pass (required June- September) for your enjoyment during your stay. Bike rentals are available in town as well if you want to ride around town or on the network of Conservation Trust trails.
For a ladies shopping getaway, Dock Square and Kennebunk have lots of great clothing, jewelry, art and craft boutiques, plus food and wine shops. Browsing all the art galleries alone can take a day or two in this seaside artist community. And you are 45 minutes to Kittery Outlets and Freeport Outlets plus the world-famous LL Bean and the Old Port of Portland for fun day trips.
There is so much to do during a Kennebunkport girls’ vacation. Or you and your girlfriends can choose to do nothing at all, just relax on the cove view lawn in a chaise or on the brick patio. In the afternoon, sitting on the front porch is sunny and pleasant watching the President’s boat pass by in summer, in fall the spectacular foliage along the river is breathtaking. Winter in Kennebunkport is magical – calm and quiet but you can still walk the beaches and enjoy the best restaurants. There are also festivals all year round in the Kennebunk’s from the food and wine extravaganza Kennebunkport Festival in early June, to craft fairs, concerts and events all summer and fall, to Christmas Prelude in early December. Nightlife in Kennebunkport now continues all year long with live bands and entertainment at One Dock, the Pirate House, Federal Jack’s Brewpub, and Stripers at the Breakwater, to name a few. No one needs to drive since you can walk to all of these pubs and restaurants.
So get your girlfriends together to rent this spectacular waterfront home in Kennebunkport. Oh, 82 Ocean is great for man-cations too, guy getaways with plenty of nearby golf courses, mountain biking and fishing.
