About Joan Ludwig

This property was a family residence for many years and for this reason it holds many memories. Originally this house was owned by a sea captain who was part of the Nunan fishing Fleet in the early 1900s. My family purchased the property when I was ten years old. My Dad was a teacher, but owned and operated Arundel Marine, which is now called the Arundel Wharf Restaurant and is located in the center of Kennebunkport. We commuted from Paddy Creek to the marina by boat. Growing up here was wonderful, I spent my summers waterskiing, sailing and exploring the nearby islands with my cousins.

Now my wife Joan and our two daughters are sharing the Paddy Creek experience. Our girls are fortunate to have grow up in this area, enjoying the Maine outdoor experience this property offers. We love swimming off the float, relaxing on the pier, snoozing in the hammock, kayaking, sailing or visiting the Cape Porpoise Islands and Goat Island Lighthouse. We love being near the water and enjoying Maine at its best.

For the past ten years we have been renting our waterfront cottage. We have also rented the main house for the past six years to the U.S. Secret Service. We are now renting them both on a weekly or monthly basis throughout the year. We are happy to offer you and your friends and family our property to create your own Maine summer memories.

Why Joan Ludwig chose Kennebunkport

We welcome you to our property on 29 Paddy Creek Road. We consider this a very special place. What is so special about it? First of all, it is situated on a tidal cove in Cape Porpoise, a quaint coastal village which is part of Kennebunkport, Maine. Our four-acre property is surrounded by water and is the last property on the end of a private road - so there is plenty of privacy. We have our own pier and float where you can dock your own boat, kayak or canoe - or you can rent one to explore the seven Cape Porpoise Islands. The pier and float are a great place for kids to swim, catch crabs and fish or for adults to sunbath, read a good book or enjoy a cold drink. The grounds include a large grassy area where many soccer, volley ball, and tug of war games have been played. The four acres include a peaceful area to rest in a hammock by the water as well as secluded woods with paths where you can enjoy a nature walk.

The property has a colonial style house, as well as a quintessential Maine cottage for accommodations. They can be rented separately or together to accommodate large families or groups. Because the distance between the house and cottage is approximately 150 ft, both the house and cottage have their own space and privacy. The pier and float are to be enjoyed by and offer water access to both the house and cottage occupants.

Less than a mile to Cape Porpoise village, it is a short walk to breakfast, lunch or dinner or for an ice cream run. In the center of Cape Porpoise you will find restaurants, a grocery store, post office, shops and galleries. It is a scenic walk to the local pier where you can fish or watch the lobstermen bring in their catch. A ten minute drive to Kennebunkport's Goose Rocks Beach, and the Kennebunk beaches as well as Kennebunkport’s Dock Square.

Almost paradise!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is fabulous! It is a truly beautiful get away. It is surrounded by nature, water and stunning views. You can walk down the road to Cap Porpoise where you can get great coffee and good place to eat.
We enjoyed the fact that we could sit, eat and relax on the porch, we would spend most of our time there. The cottage is VERY clean and well-maintained, The cottage looks and feels just as advertised - everything in great condition, with many special "extra" touches. A truly beautiful getaway. I would recommend the Paddy Creek cottage for a perfect getaway.

I want to keep this place a secret!

We will be going back to this wonderful cottage every year now. It's absolutely perfect for my wife and I. The property is so well maintained and we can launch our kayaks right out the front door. But the gem is really that screened porch and the morning light that filters in so beautifully. Cape Porpoise provides the quite and friendly community we were searching out and with a ten minute drive to Kennebunkport for a wider range of services and restaurants. It was a pleasure making our arrangements directly with the owner.

Unpretentious; Still Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5
This was my second visit to Paddy Creek. Thank you for keeping it true and unspoiled!
I love the cottage for its unassuming beauty.
It is charming, comfortable and clean!
The porch is my favorite place to relax, sip coffee and watch the sun rise and the tides change....but if you need to venture out, a quick and pleasant walk into town will provide great food choices and wonderful scenery.
This is my 'go to' relaxation spot close to home!
Joan is a joy to work with...always a good experience.

Thanks again,
Rita

My Blue Heaven.

  • 5 of 5
This was my second consecutive summer visit to this very special, very 'Maine' cottage. Private and peaceful, located on (and, at high tide, *in*) the water it can't be beat for a truly relaxing vacation.

The photos show the cottage just as it is -- charmingly decorated, immaculately clean and flooded with light; the list of amenities is comprehensive and accurate. The owners, Joan and Phil, are delightful - wonderfully accommodating and eager to enhance your stay in any way possible.

Location, location, location -- the cottage is a short distance from the laid-back village of Cape Porpoise. With its well-stocked grocery, a variety of restaurants (including lobster pounds selling the day's catch live or steamed for you on-the-spot) it's possible to forego the tourist- and traffic- jammed town of Kennebunkport if you wish. But traffic notwithstanding, its restaurants, shops and places of historic interest are there if you want them & just a few miles away. K-bunkport & Cape Porpoise: so close geographically, yet worlds away in all other respects.

If you have a kayak, bring it! If not, it's easy (though expensive) to have one delivered to the cottage.

I truly love this place but it's not for everyone. It is rustic - the king-size bed takes up most of the single bedroom, and guests sleeping in the main room must pass through it to reach the tiny bathroom. A few fans are provided but there is no a/c - and it can get quite hot. Most importantly I would not recommend this rental for anyone with mobility issues - the land around the house - large tree roots, granite, etc. jutting up through the grass-- could pose a real danger for such individuals. But for families with kids, couples and the active 55+ set ~ perfection!

Our four acre property is surrounded by water and is the last property on the end of a private road - so there is plenty of privacy. The cottage sits over the water at high tide so you feel like you are away from it all -- because you are! Located a mile from the center of Cape Porpoise you can easily walk to the grocery store or to a local restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is also a scenic walk to the local pier where you can fish or watch the lobstermen bring in their catch. At low tide you can go clamming with a license, walk the islands and enjoy island picnics. If you like the beach you can visit Goose Rocks Beach or Kennebunk Beaches in less than a ten minute drive, where you can jog, bike and walk along the beaches. If you want to get out on the water there are whale watching tours, fishing cruises and several places to rent boats, kayaks, windsurfing, scuba diving or other water sports equipment.

There are several golf courses (Par 3 and full courses) and driving ranges in the Kennebunk's including Pitch' n Put. If you like the arts you can enjoy summer theater at the Arundel Barn Playhouse in Arundel or Ogunquit Playhouse in Ogunquit, or the outdoor evening concerts on the green in Kennbunkport center along with many local art galleries.

There are also many local restaurants, gift shops and antique shops to visit. You may also want to visit other sites such as the Franciscan Monastery, Presidential compound, Laudholm Farm and the Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge.

If you don’t mind driving 25 miles north you can visit the coastal city of Portland. You may also enjoy L.L. Bean and the outlets in Freeport, Maine, about 50 miles north of Kennebunkport.

There are also, water parks, theme parks and the York Zoo all within a half hour drive.
