Love was certainly in the air this Valentine’s Day in Kennebunkport Maine, and the Maine Stay was no exception! We started off the day with a festive breakfast, dishing up our signature crustless quiche with steaming raspberry muffins and homemade cranberry applesauce, though I must admit that my attempts to form it into little hearts was a bit of a flop. Couples gathered around the table in our Kennebunkport Maine Bed and Breakfast, and they all really seemed to hit it off, even sharing how long they’ve been together (of course I’ll spill the beans – they ranged from still dating to married for well over 3o years). But while some chose to be social, others preferred to spend Valentine’s Day enjoying breakfast in bed (and considering the chilly temps this morning, I was a little envious!). To banish the cold after a long afternoon walk, guests shared their “excess” candy (does such a thing actually exist?) and we enjoyed steaming mugs of cocoa with whipped cream shaped into hearts – can you tell I love Valentine’s?
In my mind, however, the best part is helping visitors figure out what Kennebunkport Maine Restaurant is going to make their evening exactly as they imagined. This year, though, people really were planners, and, quite surprisingly, many dining reservations had already been made. So it was easy to tell that the big winners today were Bandaloop, 50Local, and On the Marsh. Now, there’s no judgement there – those were just the most popular one guests selected for dining tonight. This might actually be the first time that none of our Valentine’s diners chose to head to the White Barn Inn, and instead opted for one of the lower key establishments that make Kennebunkport Maine what it is. Later, however, when I looked into dinner reservations for myself, I was pleased to find quite a few places were fully booked. Just another reason to book your Kennebunkport Maine Bed and Breakfast reservations early! But as Valentine’s Day draws to a close, the guests are discovering the allure of our whirlpool tubs and romance of our many glowing gas fireplaces. Happy Valentine’s Day from Kennebunkport Maine!
