A Magical Wedding Venue in an Historical Setting

  • 5 of 5

With a beautiful side yard to welcome our guest surrounded

by glorious floral arrangements to the pluperfectly pitched

elaborate tent in the back yard lit up created a magical evening

for our guests.

The Cup and Saucer home was spacious, warm, every attention

to detail was paid and provided everything one possibly needed.

We spread out in the family room and two living rooms as well as

using the upstairs family room in the evening. The large kitchen

with a large round table was the gathering spot to plan our day.

Afternoons were enjoyed in the sunlit room overlooking the beautiful

expansive rear yard.

I can't imagine a better spot to have a family reunion, a retreat, a girls'

weekend or of course a wedding venue.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful and available when needed.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled that our warm and spacious home with expansive sideyard and backyard provided the ambience to create their magical wedding. Their set up in the side and back yards was Martha Stewart Magazine material that displays the best of of this historical Kennebunkport home. We welcome more family reunions, girls' retreats, corporate retreats or wedding parties in our lovely home.

The Perfect Home for Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The Cup and Saucer home provided our much needed rest

and relaxation. We immediately headed for the back yard

and sat around the fire pit with our cocktails. We ordered

some lobsters from Port Lobster and headed up to the deck

afterwards where we dived into a huge two pounder already

cooked and cracked for us. Upon waking the next morning, we

decided to head into town over the bridge to HB Provisions to

grab the local weekly paper and plan our days in The Port and

its environs. Then we headed with our coffee to Kennebunk Beach

to watch all the beach activity before hitting all the shops in town.

Later in the day, we walked down the hill from our home and strolled

along Beach Avenue towards Walkers Point. We decided to hit the

Arundel Inn porch for the next day's cocktails and dinner.

We decided that part of our time would be spent visiting the area antique

shops before heading to Ogunquit for a hike. Another hike we planned

was to Rachel Carson's Wildlife Preserve and hitting Parsons Beach nearby

for a picnic.

We can already see that we will have to return to this peaceful haven as

there is so much to do.

A pristine historic home in a pristine setting

  • 5 of 5

What a fun filled time our family experienced in this

lovely well appointed home. A lobster bake on the

deck with a freshly baked blueberry pie with the blueberries

we picked on a farm was our most favorite dinner our first

night. Our days were filled with trips to Mothers' Beach in

Kennebunk, Goose Rocks Beach and enjoying a cocktail at

The Tides and another at Earth. We spent a lot of time in

the Adrirondeck chairs in the backyard while our girls made

a swing to hang from the apple tree. We loved walking down

the hill from the house to the public park overlooking the water

and our walks into town for dinner at Hurricanes and an ice cream

up the hill. Our best view was from the porch of the Arundel Inn

before dinner.

Our family is already planning a return trip to this spacious and

comfortable home because there is so much left to experience

in the town and other areas close by.

Historic Home with Modern Amenities

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful historic house that feels like a home away from home. The house is well equipped for families, especially for young children. The cozy porch or deck off the the large kitchen are great for relaxing after a family dinner. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. A highlight for our group was the firepit with adirondack chairs in the backyard. A ten minute walk to downtown Kennebunkport was a daily event to get groceries or have lunch or dinner at one of the many restaurants. There are many options within walking distance for catching a sunset/lobster cruise or whale watching/deep sea fishing. We have stayed in many vacation homes over the years, but 38 Maine Street was among the best.

Owner's Response: Our wonderful guests took in all our warm and spacious home and all Kennebunkport has to offer. Their description exemplifies why our home is perfect for a family gathering and relaxing around the kitchen table, in our sunlit room off the kitchen, outside roasting marshmallows in our comfortable Adirondack chairs or relaxing in the upstairs living room. We are thrilled that this appreciative group enjoyed their stay. We couldn't have asked for better guests.

Kennebunkport: Maine's coast at its finest! Quintessential New England village with charming historic houses, a gorgeous walk along the rocky Atlantic coast, and wonderful sandy beaches. Outstanding antiquing from elegant shops to flea markets. Fabulous restaurants to suit every palate and price range. Attractions: Walker's Point, home to George and Barbara Bush; the Nott House, an historic sea captain's home; Dock Square shops and restaurants; lobster boats and a lighthouse. Carriage rides, bicycling, sailing and sightseeing cruises, and in winter, sleigh rides. A perfect get away every season that truly lives up to Maine's promise of 'life the way it should be. Easy day trips to Boston, Portland and Portsmouth.
