Wake up in your vacation rental to these stunning views! The Wahwa cottages don’t disappoint when it comes to sunrises. Wahwa supposedly means “Dawn” in Abenaki, the tribe that once inhabited the area.
The grounds do more than amaze from dawn until dusk. The Wahwa cottages feature private grounds with no traffic. A safe area for kids to play on the large lawns. The tide change in this area can be up to 12′. At high tide, water sports are done off the end of the pier. Swimming, canoing, kayaking and many more are enjoyed. At low tide the sand flats are excellent for walking and exploring the 5 islands that surround this protected harbor. An invigorating walk around the rocky coast line of one of these islands is a great way to work off a large lunch. Sea life can be found such as clams, hermit crabs, sand dollars and moon snails. As the tide comes back in over the warm sand it creates warm swimming pools and washes over the days sand castles. A boat trip to Goat Island light house is rewarding because the friendly hosts from Kennebunkport Conservation Trust will take you for a tour up to the top of the light house. July and August offer challenging Striped Bass fishing, you may find yourself competing for fish with our 41st president!
