Porpoise Place is an ideal location for family reunions, weddings, large gatherings or parties, Kennebunkport Christmas Prelude, etc. Two newly constructed homes--Chickadee Cottage and Lupine Lane--are now ready for rental! Chickadee and Lupine can be rented separately or together as each are on separate but adjoining 3/4 acre lots. Both homes have new heating and air conditioning systems. Chickadee Cottage is handicap accessible and is dog friendly with a fenced area for dogs and children. Chickadee has six bedrooms: two masters with king sized beds and ensuite baths downstairs, and 4 upstairs with two more full baths: another King, two Queens, and a twin bunk bed with a trundle. There are also two powder rooms downstairs. Chickadee boasts two screened porches and a large deck facing the forever wild woodlands behind the house, a large kitchen/dining room with state of the art stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, and a large cathedral ceilinged great room with a gas fireplace and large screened TV. There is a brand new Weber grill with a direct gas feed so you will never run out of fuel! A large sodded grassed play area for lawn games (bocce, croquet, sign toss and others provided by owner), picnic tables, multiple decks and 2 screened porches is being installed now. Check for pictures of the new landscaping next week!


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 will 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, Chickadee is surrounded by woods and natural Maine habitat. Walk behind the home 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.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $1,000
  • housecleaning $250
  • Pet Fee $100
  • Tax Rate 9%

Notes:

Please understand that there are in season and off season rates and they are up to date. I DO NOT negotiate from the posted in season and off season rates. If the calendar shows red it means someone has booked Chickadee. If it is gray or has a line through the dates, it means that someone has booked both Chickadee and Lupine together on my double site so Chickadee is not available. My rental rates are increasing very slightly for 2018. Should you wish to book now please call me at 207 730 1468 for those rates. However, I do not know if the State of Maine will raise the lodging tax that I must collect from you and pass on to them....if they do the last payment may have to be modified if I must collect additional tax. And if the cleaners raise their prices in 2018---wouldn"t be much--I have to pass that along as well.

Owner info

About the owner: Former "Corporate America", I retired after 30 years and started building designing, building and renting seasonal beach homes in Cape Porpoise village. I employ ONLY local people to help provide work for many who could not otherwise afford to stay in the Village that we all cherish. In my former life, we moved 12 times for my job, and I traveled extensively all over the world. From this I learned what I liked and didn't like staying "away from my home". I designed Lupine Lodge and Chickadee with those learnings in mind, trying to anticipate needs. I am sure I will get feedback about what to change or add etc, and I will always continue to try to improve.

Why the Owner Chose Cape Porpoise, Kennebunkport, ME, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
