Just returned very grudgingly from our delightful, restful week at the Fish House. What a fantastic vacation spot! The house is completely charming and the deck is really the highlight. We spent many hours on the deck, doing the arduous job of watching the tide come in right underneath us. It was also an awesome spot for nighttime meteor-gazing.
The bedrooms are, indeed, cozy ... the smaller room (and the stairway) was a little tight for our 6' tall teenager, but my husband and I were delighted with our room. Beds and linens were top-notch and very comfortable. The kitchen is ... yes, small. So, eat your breakfast on the deck and then go eat lobster rolls and seafood chowder at the chowder house down the street. :)
I was a little wary of the "rustic" bathroom, but was pleasantly surprised. It's clean, the shower's good, no worries there.
The town of Cape Porpoise is tiny, quiet and charming - quite a relief after our traffic-clogged arrival trip through Kennebunkport. The short trip to beautiful Goose Rocks beach was always a treat. The market in town is walking distance and very well-supplied - and not crazy expensive, either.
After 2 days my husband was ready to re-book for many consecutive summers ... I'm sure we'll be back!
