Interaction with GuestsBoth Peter Simonetta & Patrick Orr was born in New York City; we have been together for forty years this year 2015. Peter was one of the founders of World Yacht Enterprises in Manhattan, 1969, & Patrick after serving in the Navy, worked in visual merchandizing in Manhattan, for stores like Bergdorf Goodman & Bonwett Tellers, on 5th avenue in the early 70’s. We left Manhattan in the late 70’s, & moved to upstate New York, to Warwick were we restored a 1929 log cabin & opened an antique shop. We then moved to Tuxedo Park, New York one of the first planned communities in the United States & is on the Historic Register, an 1886 Bruce Price house that we restored & brought the house into the 20th Century. After 20 years in Tuxedo Park we sold our home & retired to Kennebunk, Maine. We purchased & restored our home, an 1846 Greek revival built by Captain Charles Thompson, on Summer Street in the Historic District of Kennebunk. We love being close to the Atlantic Ocean, the Kennebunk’s activities, friends, neighbors, & people we have encountered in our travels. Kennebunk is a beautiful place to live, just breathe the air! Everyone who reads this description, we hope at some point you take the time to come to Kennebunk for a visit. Peter & Patrick will greet you upon your arrival.
