Porpoise Place is a perfect venue in Southeastern Maine for your next event or vacation! Porpoise Place is located off Langsford Road in the quintessential fishing village of Cape Porpoise, Maine. Two large newly constructed homes at 3 and 4 Porpoise Place offer you plenty of upscale housing and amenities to host your next corporate event, family reunion, bachelorette party, small wedding, or a multiple family vacation. If you want to take advantage of Porpoise Place for an event, both Chickadee Cottage and Lupine Lodge have to be rented. There is also a site for a tent or other facility for your gathering; contact the owner for further information about renting Porpoise Place for your event.
And while located in the very heart of Cape a Porpoise within two blocks of town center, the houses are surrounded by woods and natural Maine habitat. Walk behind the houses on your own path to Bradbury’s market or the Church on the Cape. Or walk two blocks on the sidewalk to the ever popular Wayfarer Restaurant, the Captains restaurant for great seafood and home made desserts, or Cape Porpoise kitchen for morning pastries and coffee, take out sandwiches for your beach picnic, or take out prepared foods for dinner. Nunan’s Lobster is 4 blocks away and the Cape Porpoise Ice Cream shop is a dangerous 3 blocks from Porpoise Place. Or head up the street 2 blocks to Langsford Road Lobster and wait while they cook the freshly caught lobster you just picked out. If you are up for a half mile walk or bike ride you can head up Pier Road, enjoying beautiful views of CP Harbor, until you arrive at the working fishing/lobstering pier where you can watch the fishermen in action, sit out on the benches and view Goat Island Lighthouse, listen to the melodious fog horn, launch a kayak or indulge in the three renowned eateries–upscale Pier 77 with gorgeous views of the harbor, The Ramp, a very popular bar with lots of sports and other memorabilia, including autographs all over the walls of some of sport’s most acclaimed…and of course, George and Barbara Bush, or Cape Porpoise Chowder Hiuse where your food is made to order and brought out to you to eat while watching the boats and harbor.
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.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Cape Porpoise, Kennebunkport, ME, USA:
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!
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
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.
