On this beautiful summer day, I looked out the office window in our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast to find three generations of a family enjoying the sunshine. Fortunately, this is not a rarity. Whether families choose to vacation
in one suite or enjoy their own private quarters, the Maine Stay Inn is the ideal spot for multiple generations looking to spend quality time together! Of course, spending a day at the beach is a perfect activity for groups with members of different ages and interests, especially the easily navigable ones that Kennebunkport Maine is so proud of. The littlest ones are content to splash in the waves or build sandcastles, while the more mature often opt for long walks or lounging with a good book. But best of all, I love to see families playing in the surf together or joining forces to build an incredible sandcastle.
The family excursions don’t stop at the beach, however. One often enjoyed activity is the Intown Trolley tour, which rolls through town, ringing its bells for waving onlookers, pointing out scenic vistas and historic points of interest (usually for us more mature folks) while the kiddos itch for a chance to ring the bell on this classic trolley. In a similar vein, the Seashore Trolley Museum offers a peek at transportation history and the chance to ride on antique rail cars. It’s difficult to describe what a gem this local museum is, but head over on a Thursday night for ice cream sundaes and no questions will remain in your mind!
Don’t feel like leaving our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast? How about a friendly game of volleyball? Try your hand at bocce, perfect for even the littlest in your clan. I must admit, I have seen some heated rounds gracing our backyard! But the best games of all are those invented by creative young minds, content to play freely in our expansive backyard (a bit of a rarity in Kennebunkport Maine), watched by their families relaxing in nearby lounge chairs outside their family cottage or joining in the fun. And since July is Family Reunion Month, it may be time to consider planning your next family vacation (multiple generations or not) to our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast – perfect for the whole family!
