Looking for vacation rental house for 20 people

I've tried VRBO, home away and the vacation rental pages here on trip advisor, but have yet to find the right house to rent for a one-week vacation on the coast of Maine next summer. We are a family of 20 (grandparents, kids, grandkids) - 10 adults and 10 kids ranging from 5-18. We are looking for something near the water -- if not on the coast, within a 10-minute walk. While we love the beach and swimming, we'd also like to be able to hike, kayak, bike ride, explore tide pools, visit town, etc. Hoping for one large house, but would be open to other combinations. We are open to suggestions in southern to mid-coast Maine. Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island are a bit too far north for this trip. Looking forward to suggestions of specific houses, towns, realtors. Thanks!

I don't know if they would have a single property large enough to accommodate your group, but if you haven't already you could try the following Maine-based vacation rental agencies:

http://www.onthewaterinmaine.com/

http://www.cottageconnection.com/

But I would second Joethom1974's suggestion to also look at cottage resorts, where your group might be spread out in two or more buildings, but the buildings would be in close proximity. Some of these might be listed as "Specialty Lodging" (versus Hotels, B&Bs, or Vacation Rentals) on Trip Advisor.
