1 bedroom accommodation in Port Clyde

Located in: Port Clyde
KenMa Cottage is a precious and rare commodity in these hectic times. It is a lot of things simply because of the things it isn’t.



If unplugging – really unplugging – speaks to you, this is the place to come to.



KenMa Cottage is about peace and quiet, the kind that comes from sitting on a deck overlooking the water and reading a book or walking along rocks smoothed by the sea.



A place where time is only measured by the tides, lobster boats coming in from the haul or the sun sinking behind the spikey pines across the water.



This rustic, but comfortable, cabin was built by the water’s edge in 1917 and remains true to its origins; a place for quiet relaxation from the challenges of the modern world. The covered deck is just feet from the shore and overlooks the many islands of the Muscongus Bay. In the mornings, lobster boats work nearby; in the afternoons, sailboats and kayaks glide by on silver waters.



The front room of the cabin has a stone fireplace, marked in small stones, with a nickname for the man who inspired its construction. Kendrick Marshall (or KenMa, for short) ran the Port Clyde General Store in the early 1900s and manned the village’s post office. His ancestors still own the cabin and are making it available to people outside the family for the first time in more than 50 years.



An addition in the 1980s added a basic eat-in kitchen with an electric stove, sink, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker, a small bathroom with a shower and a cozy bedroom. The cabin can accommodate 2 in the bedroom (double bed) and 1 in the alcove in the front room on a twin bed. The total square footage (less the decks) is about 600 square feet.



There is no phone, no TV and no Internet service. Heat, if needed, is provided by a fantastic fireplace in the front room and a portable electric heater. Great books, good conversation, strolls along the shore and walk to the village replace the need for electronics.



There’s plenty of shoreline to launch a kayak or spread out a beach towel on the rocks. Dogs – large or small – seem to thrive here, sleeping in the sun on the side deck, wading in the salt water, walking through the woods…



For anyone who stays here, it becomes clear that vacations are better when you are present in the moment enough to really see where you are.



KenMa Cottage, Port Clyde, Maine…no emails, no meetings, no alarms. Just salty breezes, fresh lobster, chairs on a deck and peace and quiet.



During SUMMER rentals are scheduled Saturday to Saturday only.
