Kennebunkport house description

Relax and enjoy the charm of a true fishing village life in quaint Cape Porpoise. In the morning, brew your own, or get your coffee (and freshly baked muffin) from the Wayfarer restaurant, Cape Porpoise Kitchen or Bradbury's market--all less than 4 blocks away! Sit on your private back yard deck knowing your children and/or dog(s) are safely enclosed and--best of all--are with you on vacation! Walk to the village for groceries, and enjoy dining and drinks at several close--walking distance restaurants--no designated driver needed!

See the tide coming in and going out in many spots in the village and across the street. Drive by Walker's point--summer home to the Bush family. 'One town--two President's'. Take a short drive to Goose Rock's beach and enjoy the soft sand and tidal pools; or go into the Kennebunk beaches--there are several and on the way home stop at one of the many local and friendly bars for a cold one. If shopping calls you, you will enjoy the many unique boutiques of Dock Square or you can drive south to adorable Ogunguit. If serious shopping is your thing--you will be compelled to head North 35 miles to the outlets of Freeport, Maine--and the infamous LL Bean which is open 24 hour a day, 365 days a year!. Or continue South after Ogunquit and hit up the Kittery outlet malls--rated one of the best outlet malls in the US! and of course, Portland, Maine--often called the 'mini Boston' is only 25 miles South. From Portland you can a ferry to Peak's island for the day...or if you really want to rove you can take the ferry from Portland to Nova Scotia.

Or launch your kayak or small boat within a mile of the rental property and enjoy a day exploring the Islands around Cape Porpoise Harbor. Or walk to back shore during low tide and collect sea shells and sand dollars. You can--of course--get your fishing and/or clamming license and go all native.

If theater is your thing--check out the Ogunguit Playhouse which attracts excellent summer stock. It is a large gracious summer theatre. Local theaters include Arundel Playhouse which is 10 minutes away,

Or go to the police dept--just a mile away--and get a permit for a bonfire on the beach--great fun for everyone. Don't forget the S'mores and remember the dogs must be leashed while on the beach (they are allowed after 6 o'clock pm). Or just relax on your back deck and grill those marshmallows on your gas grill while the family enjoys the large back yard. Or if the weather doesn't permit, enjoy a movie on your Blue Ray/DVD player while the rest of the family plays cards or monopoly at the game table. If all of this is too much--escape to the sitting room and read a good book away from the fray.

                  Our property sits on almost acre of land walking distance to the center of Cape Porpoise. It sits back far from the road and has a large fenced in backer for your two and four legged 'kids'. The house is a 3 mile drive to Goose Rocks beach; two miles to Dock Square, Kennebukport and walking distance to all that Cape Porpoise offers, including Kitchen Chicks, The Wayfarer, Nunan's and The Captains restaurants downtown and Pier 77, the Ramp and the Chowder house across from Goat Island light. There is a kayak launch less than a mile away (you have to follow the tides unless you want to camp out on one of the 11 Islands surrounding Cape Porpoise!). Bicycling is popular, and although the water is never that warm, surfing and snorkeling and paddle boarding.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We are now fortunate enough to be permanent residents of Cape Porpoise--in fact, we live less than a mile away from our rental property. We are now both retired and are adult children are out on their own but we first experienced Cape Porpoise through renting years ago! We fell in love and eventually moved here. We have enjoyed renovating 24 Mills Road for vacationers and we are very happy to share the 'cape porpoise' experience. We are allergic to cats but total 'dog lovers'. We lost our Golden Retriever last year but we still have a jack russel terrier (total pip!) a shitzu and Brussel's Griffon mix--with a face only a mother could love'. we have gone--and continue to go--to most of the local restaurants and stores, and are happy to share our experiences. We will leave all of the local menus in the rental unit, along with some coupons and specials that are unique to us and this property because we know so many of the local restauranteurs, shop keepers, etc. Our goal is to hope our vacationers have a restful and memorable time.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport:
                  Our family vacationed in Cape Porpoise for several years before we bought a small camp on Fisher's Lane. We accidentally 'fell upon' Cape Porpoise one year when our kids were babies and we were lost in the rain. As our family and needs grew we sold the camp and built a home about a half mile away. Both of our children worked at the local restaurants all through high school and college. We acquired 24 Mills Road 2 years ago but we were not able to begin renovations until this year so this is our first summer offering it for rental.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  You can walk to some of the most famous and fabulous Maine restaurants. Cape Porpoise and Kennebunkport are very quaint little towns, with lots of shops, restaurants, and activities. And Portland is only 25 minutes North, Boston is 90 minutes South and the location is ideal.
