If you want to head to the beach, you can buy your weekly pass right at the police station less than half mile away and head 3 miles north by car or bike to Goose Rocks Beach or 3 miles in the other direction to Kennebunk, Gooch’s or Mother’s beaches. And if the restaurants and shops in Cape Porpoise aren’t enough, drive less less than 3 to highly acclaimed Earth restaurant at Hidden Pond (reservations book up weeks in advance so keep that in mind), the Tides at Tides Beach Club or check out the 50 plus ice cream flavors at Goose Rock’s dairy.

About Deborah Davis
We purchased a small house on a large lot in Cape Porpoise Square. The house did not conform to modern codes and was very close to the front of the lot. We were able to divide the lot into two (each is over a half acre) and we are building beautiful new homes for large group vacationers to enjoy. We love this quaint town which Yankee Magazine just named as one of the top 10 prettiest coastal towns in New England---in fact we were number one! So we built them to take advantage of all the best the town offers but also to blend in with the quaint, laid back and quintessential New England atmosphere of the town. We live about a half mile from the houses and we have another rental which has a 5 star rating and we are applying for a permit to start construction of one more home--also within Cape Porpoise town square.
Deborah Davis purchased this Estate in 2013
Why Deborah Davis chose Cape Porpoise
Every year we host several family events at our own home here and have had as many as 30 plus sleeping over on air beds, couches--you name it. One year we lost electricity for 5 days and had to cook all of our food etc on the wood stove we were fortunate enough to have....and we had a brand new grand baby and every one took turns holding him to keep him warm. It was one of the best Christmas get togethers we ever had! And during the summer each year we host several large gatherings to enjoy all this beautiful seacoast area has to offer. One of our children lived in Hawaii for a while and we learned about practicing the Aloha spirit. It means many things, and one is that no one owns the lands around ocean--it is really meant for all to enjoy and share. So, we build these two homes and are building another to allow large families and/or groups to travel together to celebrate family, a special occasion or just enjoy the area and get away from the daily routine for R & R. We also employ only local people to build our homes and work on the properties. It allows talented local artisans and specialists to live and raise their families here. So, let us know if we can help you plan a fabulous get away at any of our homes or all of them if you are traveling as a group or for an event!
What makes this Estate unique
Chickadee Cottage and Lupine Lodge are located at 3 and 4 Porpoise Place. Porpoise Place is a private road off Langsford road in Cape Porpoise. A little house in town on over 1.5 acres came up for sale. The house was not up to code and could not be altered in size or location, and needed considerable work to make it clean and safe. So, the house came down and I created a private road--Porpoise Place off of Langsford Road. That private road now leads to two private driveways--one to Chickadee Cottage and one to Lupine Lodge. Both sit far back on the lot and overlook forever wild. Yet, 1-3 blocks away are 3 restaurants, a fish house, a market, an ice cream store, the library, an art gallery, etc. You can walk 1/2 mile to the Pier where here are 3 more restaurants, a working lobster pier and a gorgeous view of the ocean and Goat Island Lighthouse. And in a 2-4 mile drive you have access to the most popular Kennebunk beaches--Goose Rocks, Kennebunk Beach, Mother's Beach, Gooch's beach, Colony beach.

Wonderful Spot for Reunion, Everybody Raved!
We rented both Lupine Lodge & Chickadee Cottage for a family reunion. The houses were well equipped (we cooked a lot), sparkling clean, and well-situated among beautiful walks, local shopping & food options.
Both houses are new & sparkling - beds were comfy & many rooms have a private bathroom. We'll be back!
Great for team-offsite
This provided the perfect location for a corporate team -off-site. We comfortably slept almost 25 people across both houses with the perfect amount of common spaces for smaller and larger group meetings. If only the weather had worked out a bit more in our favor, we would have been all over the fire pit for some late night smores. Couldn't have asked for a better rental and Deborah was so great to work with leading up to our reservation.
We highly recommend these houses! They are both immaculate, well appointed and could not have asked for more. We held a 30th birthday celebration there with tent, band, etc and it was a perfect setting for 40 guests. Deborah, the owner, was very easy to work with. Cannot think of a single thing we needed. Hopefully we will find a reason to go back.
Family Renunion In October 2017
The 24 of us had a fabulous time in Deborah's two, gorgeous homes. Deborah made us feel so welcome in so many ways. The rooms were all full of light, and beautifully decorated. We had plenty of room to share, and each had our own, private space to retreat to when 20+ A personalities, ranging in age from 3 to 87, got to be too much. We could not have asked for a more wonderful place to stay. As a result, we loved Kennebunkport, Kennebunk, and Maine. I think that I ate lobster at least once a day. The screened-in porches were terrific places to stage arts and crafts, including a pumpkin decorating contest. We cooked and ate, and cooked, and ate. I look forward to enjoying Deborah's hospitality again. Tom & Cindy and the Eldred Reunion Clan.
Would love to have you back anytime! So happy you enjoyed our homes and local area!
Perfect accommodations for company retreat!
I rented Chickadee Cottage and Lupine Lodge for my company's Offsite meetings and events. From the time of booking, Deborah was extremely helpful, providing local recommendations and promptly responded to any questions. Both houses are beautifully appointed, very clean, and comfortably slept our entire group (of 15 people), allowing everyone to have their own bedroom, and for many, their own bathroom as well. There were plenty of indoor and outdoor common spaces for meetings and enjoying meals. The location in Kennebunkport is ideal, as the houses are on a quiet street yet within walking distance to everything you might need, and only a few minutes drive to the main street with shops and restaurants. We absolutely loved our stay and highly recommend Porpoise Place!!!
Beautiful - Must Stay
We rented both homes for New Years away in Maine. What beautiful homes which were very comfortable for multiple families (with small children). Only complaint I would have is we couldn't seem to get the home warm enough. Most would probably turn on the beautiful gas fireplaces to resolve the matter but since we had small children this wasn't an option. Accommodations were clean, beautiful and close to everything in KBPT! You won't be disappointed!
Thanks for the review--so helpful to know! I wish I had known you were having an issue at the time...that is why I always provide my phone number. I also have a property manager who lives---like I do---less than a half mile away. We could have helped and never mind receiving an email, text or call. I hate to think you wren cold or uncomfortable!
The houses have brand new mini-split heating systems. Each room has its own remote and controller so the temperature in every room can be set for the occupant's comfort. However, if one person shuts down any one of the remotes---e.g. while adjusting the temperature or if a child plays with it (has happened a number of times!) the entire system will shut down. There are two laminated sheets in the houses---one that says "WHAT" and one that says "WHERE". This is explained in detail on the WHAT sheet. So sorry this happened to you....I can tell you the heat can blast---I have had to turn it down before.
As for the gas fireplaces---thanks for bringing them up--there are two in Lupine's great room and one in Chickadee's. They are safe even with children. The glass protects from any flame and it cannot reach a temperature that can burn or harm--it is much cooler, for example--than the air that actually blows out of the top of the fireplace vents. This is why I installed these particular fireplaces. I will add this information to the WHAT sheet so future guests are aware of this. Also, any future guest reading this---please do not hesitate to call, text or email me---I will make certain someone responds to you asap. Thanks again for tis helpful feedback!
