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.

About: 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 Cape Porpoise, Kennebunkport, ME, USA:
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.
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.
