About the property

8 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 14, All With Stunning Ocean Views

As much "an experience" as shelter, Kinsale delights everyone of all ages. It`s a three-story, turn-of-the-20th-century family home, one large enough for multi-generational families or groups. It stands on the side of a hill at the eastern edge of Orr`s Island and looks out to open ocean and small islands. Rock your way to undisturbed relaxation on the covered porch with gazebo that catches both ocean views and ocean breezes. Delight in swimming and boating from the property. Fly fish to your heart`s content from the shoreline and the rocks. Watch the kids discover tide pools and shells. Stargaze from the open deck and watch the moon rise over the sea from one of the many oceanfront rooms. Scan the panoramic waterfront for lobster boats and marine life. At night, retire to multiple old-fashioned and comfortable bedrooms, including one on the first floor. Then . . . wake again the next morning to sunrise over the water and do it all again! Kinsale by the Sea is the perfect site for a family gatherings. Once you have enjoyed living the life of yesteryear on the ocean, you find it hard-pressed to leave--but you remember your fun experiences for a very long time; the sea, the shore, and the old Maine cottage with its lovely aged wooden interiors, the relaxing and expansive covered porch and the singular experience that is Kinsale by the Sea.

Kinsale by the Sea is Pet-Friendly!

The Cottage does not have Cable TV or Internet, but our office is located just 5 minutes from the house and guests are more than welcome to use our WiFi.

a wonderful charming place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Kinsale by the Sea was the most charming place to stay. The house is a bit rustic, but that added to the ambience of Maine! We had a cozy fire in the fireplace with the sound of waves rolling up on the rocks outside. Our family of 13 were very comfortable and the beds were great. We saw seals and bald eagles while watching from the big picture window in the living room. We even watched the lobster boats checking their traps every day or so. All the supplies we needed were provided; all we did was bring in the food. This house is just so wonderful and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if/when we get to Maine. Thank you for letting our family make so many happy memories while staying at Kinsale by the Sea!!
