Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I recently returned from an incredible weekend in Kennebunkport, staying at the Old River House with many of my closest friends. I have to say Scott and Cheryl were the ultimate hosts and made sure we had everything we needed throughout the weekend. The location is ideal, just a few short minutes walk into town and along a beautiful section of Ocean Ave. There is a great 4 mile run down to the Bush Compound and back. We used the kayaks and canoe to vary up the day and convened each night for a big family cooked meal. There were plenty of pots/ pans and utensils and we only had to bug Scott for a vegetable peeler.
We went to the beach both days and it was great having a parking pass. Some of my friends found public tennis courts that were 5 minutes away to keep them busy.
I really can't say enough good things about the Old River House. I have rented many houses over the years and I have to say Scott and Cheryl were some of the best to work with. We will definitely be coming...
