Property description

Our delightful summer home in Cape Porpoise, Kennebunkport, is bright and welcoming. It is located on a dead end street within walking distance to Cape Porpoise village. We are secluded but close to everything.

This unique cottage has two stories. Downstairs, the living room has a Sealy sectional sleep sofa, cable TV, DVD and a wood burning stove. This room can be closed off for privacy. A large, modern, eat-in kitchen with brand-new stove, dishwasher and eating area for 4 people. Our bath is fully updated and has a shower. In the living room there are sliding glass doors which take you out to a fenced-in yard with a brick patio. It is equipped with table/chairs and Weber grill.

The second floor has a master bedroom with a queen-sized bed and sliders to a deck overlooking the cove. There are custom bunk beds in the second bedroom and a large closet. There are ceiling fans throughout the cottage, a/c upstairs and baseboard heating.

Our cottage has a Right of Way to Sampson Cove, with ocean access. This is part of the Rachel Carson Bird Sanctuary and Kennebunkport Conservation Trust. The migrating Great Egrets nest here. You will find our kayaks on the cove and are included in the rental with paddles and adult PFDs. You can kayak a little further to Cape Porpoise Harbor and its protected islands. Find secluded beaches, explore deserted islands or paddle out to to Goat Island Lighthouse to picnic on the rocks.

Our local beach is Goose Rocks Beach which is a few miles north along Rt. 9. You can bike there or take your car (parking sticker available at Police Station).

Cape Porpoise: Our village is in Kennebunkport but far from the crowds. It is a small community of lobstermen and locals where people remember you and always say hello. Stroll the 5 minute walk along the sidewalk to the village center. Many people come to eat at Nunan's Lobsterpot but there are other restaurants like The Wayfarer (BYOB) and the Captain's Table. You can walk to the pier which is a 3/4 mile walk or ride your bike. Here you'll find the CP lobster co-op, Pier Chowder House (clam shack) and Pier 77 ( fine dining restaurant) and The Ramp pub downstairs. The view of the lighthouse is spectacular and as are the sunsets

Our cottage supplies non-toxic household products free and clear of dyes and scents, sheets and towels.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Welcome to our cottage. My Mom and I are pleased to have you share our home in Maine. We love it here and rent to nice people like you when we can't enjoy it ourselves.

Why the Owner Chose Cape Porpoise:
Our 'Kayak Kottage' is a wonderful retreat. It is spacious and bright on the inside and perfect for a family. Our yard is shaded for some time out of the sun and comes with an outside shower for a quick wash-up after a day paddling in Cape Porpoise Harbor or when you return from Goose Rocks Beach. We accept dogs when we feel its a good fit for our place. The yard is fully fenced in making it easy for children or dogs to be outdoors.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We have a right of way deeded to Sampson Cove from our house which is located less than 100 ft from the yard. We are the only people who can use it. You can bring your folding chairs to the waters edge and watch the tide flow. Our Kayaks are right there and all you need to get out on the water. All equipment is included. This is the hidden gem of our place. The ability to get out on the water without getting in your car. Paddle out and enjoy the natural beauty of the nesting Great Egrets. The lure of the uninhabited islands. With in Cape Porpoise Harbor are island beaches only accessible from the water. We have had seals swim up beside us and check us out.
