Our Story

Deb left the fast paced city life of Massachusetts to continue nursing in northern NH ski country where John grew up and was working in sporting goods sales and service, mainly skiing and tennis.  Living in a tourist town they always romanticized about owning a bed and breakfast. Fast forward 40 years....

After years of  family summer visits from NH to Cape Porpoise  Kennebunkport, when the  last of their three children finished high school they decided they were ready for their next adventure. In 2007 after having stayed with the previous two owners, John and Deb fulfilled the once romanticized dream and purchased the Cape Porpoise Motel.



We have always lived far enough from family that a visit usually meant staying a couple/few days. Having a large family, we hosted many visits and occasions. We always made sure family had a comfortable and very clean bedroom/bathroom with plenty of hot water and thirsty towels, and we always baked a favorite offering served fresh from the oven with morning coffee.

We offer the same to our guests. We treat you like our family and  want you to feel comfortable, warm, cozy and relaxed as if  you are visiting family you truly like and genuinely enjoy.
