Welcome to The Big House, Kennebunk
The Big House is a Grand family home with two one-mile stretches of private beach on either side, built in the late 1800’s although updated and recently renovated to include all the conveniences of modern life … steps away from the surf.
A beachgoer’s paradise, Parsons Beach offers heaps of light brown sugar sand, warm sun and refreshing ocean breezes, as well as a dramatic stretch of rocks which form nooks of colorful starfish and shells. The dunes and tidal pools offer infinite opportunities for exploration and fun for children and adults alike. There is ocean spin-casting right off your doorsteps or fly fishing in the saltwater ponds down the beach which offer the avid fisherman opportunities to catch dinner. The Big House and Annex also offers Kayaking or if you are feeling more adventuresome navigate through the waves around the waters of Harts Rock
The Big House
The Big House is, in my opinion, one of the finest examples of seaside architecture on the East Coast. An act of defiance on its exposed, wind- and spray-swept point, it’s the quintessential weathered New England house paired with an equally hardy lone pine. It’s an icon that captures man’s complex relationship with the land and ocean.” Bruce Irving, Long-time Executive Producer of “This Old House” .
Located on Parsons Beach in Kennebunk, The Big House is the most picturesque, grandest house on the East Coast: with 14 bedrooms, a modernized kitchen, an library overlooking the ocean, an immense wood-paneled dining room and an Annex with a private entrance and private living quarters to accommodate a family of 8, The Big House provides a luxurious setting.
