5 Hidden Gems in Kennebunk Maine

Mother’s Beach 

One of the rumors about the name Mother’s Beach comes from it being on calm waters and having a playground, perfect for mothers to watch their children play safely. This public beach has fewer than 40 parking spots, and lifeguards are available from mid-June through early September. 

Maine Classic Car Museum

 A self-proclaimed “holy grail of car collecting” awaits guests with 50 automobiles from different generations on display. 

The Wedding Cake House

The mystery around this elegant and intricate home makes it all the more appealing. It has a storied history, starting as a wedding gift from parents to their son and daughter-in-law. The “icing,” known as the extravagant (yet gothic) trim on the home, was added years later. 

Boulangerie – A Proper Bakery 

Carbs, coffee, and espresso dominate the dawn at this downtown bakery that subtly snubs other bakeries by calling itself “A Proper Bakery.” Bread is an art when you look at the expansive menu, and convenience is offered with grab-and-go options. 

Goat Island Lighthouse 

Located off the shore of Kennebunkport in Cape Porpoise Harbor. You can hop on a round-trip boat tour to the lighthouse with New England Eco Adventures, which includes an approved tour of the building and grounds.
