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.

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.

The Cup-n-Saucer: A little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Where to begin? The Cup-n-Saucer is a magical relaxing journey back into New England's charm, warmth, history and hospitality. The home itself is breathtakingly beautiful and invites you into each room for a new comfort experience and more than a little history. In walking distance to downtown Kennebunkport, you are always close to dining, shopping, antiquing, or just browsing about this wonderful town. A CAN'T MISS DESTINATION!!!!!!

This house is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Within walking distance to the quaint Kennebunkport downtown, this house is amazing! There are numerous sleeping and sitting area options making it a perfect getaway for two to ten. The house is beautifully appointed and well maintained. If you care to cook, you will find the kitchen has everything you need. From family breakfasts around the kitchen table to cocktails in the sun room, this vacation rental has all the comforts of home.

Gorgeous Home

  • 5 of 5

You don't need to look any further for a vacation home! This home is perfect, for a family of 2 up to a family of 8-10. It is all that you would want or need. It is beautifully furnished and a very well furnished kitchen. You can wake up in the morning and drink your coffee on the sun porch, where you have a view of the beautiful backyard! You are a 5-10 minute walk (depending on how many times you stop to take photos of the beautiful surroundings) to downtown where there are so many shops and wonderful eating places. Katie has put a book together that gives suggestions of eating places and shopping. You really don't have to do any research. After a day seeing all the gorgeous sights in and around Kennebunkport, you come back to the Cup and Saucer and enjoy a cocktail of your choice in the backyard around the fire pit. I would highly recommend the Cup and Saucer and plan to make this one of our favorite vacation places.
