What could be more romantic than spending your babymoon at a Maine Bed and Breakfast? Turns out that quite a few couples have recently decide that “nothing” is the answer to that question! All of us at the Maine Stay are so lucky to share in this exciting event, as they prepare for the arrival of their (usually first) bundle of joy. It is such a treat for us to pamper mom and dad before the boxes of Pampers arrive.
Recently, though, I have had the privilege of helping these moms and dads-to-be decide on what room or suite best fits their needs, and here are some of the trends I have found:
- King beds are, well, king! As mommy gets closer to her due date, it seems like she really appreciates a little extra space. And
while that’s not always the case, most of these lovely ladies have jumped at the chance for a king bed instead of the queen they have at home.
- First floor is preferred, and fortunately for the Maine Stay Inn, 13 of our 17 options are on the ground floor. It’s nice not to worry about a windy, spiral staircase when you can’t quite see your toes anymore!
- Breakfast in bed is a hot commodity! Unlike your average Maine Bed and Breakfast, guests in our cottage suites have the option of having our gourmet breakfast delivered straight to their door. Of course, they are always welcome to join us in the dining room or on our large wraparound porch, but with opportunities dwindling to enjoy a leisurely breakfast in bed, most expectant parents seem gung-ho about living up this luxury.
And at our Maine Bed and Breakfast, visitors celebrating their babymoon can choose to have a delicious, healthy, and a tad bit indulgent snack delivered to their door in the evening. They can pop the cork on their chilled bottle of sparkling apple cider (alcohol-free, of course!) and settle in for an evening of relaxation. It’s a great treat to have waiting for you after a day of exploring Kennebunkport and the beauties of Southern Maine. So put your feet up, relax, and let the Maine Stay Inn pamper you during your babymoon experience!
