Kennenbunkport, Maine, offers something new in the realm of bed and breakfasts. Cabot Cove Cottages is a group of 16 cottages built on Kennenbunk Cove. Coastal Living reports that each cottage sports a nautical look both inside and out. The cottages are painted in blue and white, and inside they are decorated with rope and brass and all things relating to the sea.
Each cottage is individually owned, but can be easily rented out when the owner is not using the home. The owner's association takes care of running the vacation rentals and managing the bed and breakfast side of the program. Those who own the cottages have a win-win position with a Cabot Cove Cottage. In case you want to take a look inside one of these beauties, take a look at the Sandpiper here.
