Yesterday was my 24th birthday, which got me thinking about what an awesome surprise an escape to a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast would be! So I spent an inordinate amount of time today day-dreaming about what my perfect birthday vacation in Kennebunkport Maine would entail. Here goes!
The room: Now, I have an obsession with historical architecture, so I would want to stay in the main house (in case you’re curious, my favorite color is green – you can figure it out). I also really like to talk with people, so I wouldn’t miss out on dining at the breakfast table with other guests. However, if that wasn’t my thing, I would absolutely pick a
Cottage Suite with a double jacuzzi tub. What girl doesn’t love a good soak?
The food: Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is just steps from downtown, with passels of great restaurants. I would definitely make reservations at my favorite spots for dinner, but would play lunchtime by ear. Since I absolutely adore picnics, that would definitely be a must. A variety of casual dining restaurants offer take out options, but there are also two excellent catering companies that have picnic-perfect goodies. As far as dinner goes, I would definitely want to walk so that I could enjoy a celebratory cocktail. Plus sunsets on the bridge are not to be missed. So my picks would probably be for an “in-between” restaurant (one with amazing food, but where I could go in nice jeans or a cute dress depending on my mood… or the weather).
The plan: The whole premise of our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is to provide people with the kind of experience they want. I would want to play outside! That means long walks on the beach (I am not kidding) and through the historic district. I would want to visit Laudholm Farm and stroll the Marginal Way. And I have always wanted to explore Mount Agamenticus, where you can apparently see the ocean from the top of the hill! But what I would really want is to be surprised, whether that means gourmet dessert delivered to my door, spectacular floral arrangements, or a getaway that kept me completely in the dark.
So that’s my idea of a perfect birthday getaway, but at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, we’re here to help make your birthday escape exactly what you need.
