Everyone at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast wishes former President George H.W. Bush a speedy recovery. Recently hospitalized near his winter-time home in Houston, Bush is suffering from a nasty cough that has lingered after a bout of bronchitis. While his prognosis is good, a painful cough at the age of 88 is something that must be monitored closely, and all of us at the Maine Stay Inn are happy to hear that the former President is under the watchful eyes of medical professionals.

Barbara’s presence was certainly missed at this past weekend’s kick-off to Christmas Prelude, but we all know that the warm Texas air is certainly a better place for him to recuperate than Maine’s brisk December weather. Last Saturday featured gentle snowfall throughout the day, and certainly set the perfect scene for Kennebunkport’s famous Christmas celebration. But the mercury topped out at an unseasonably warm 50 degrees! That means that visitors to Kennebunkport are enjoying the twinkling light displays and gorgeous decorations without even having to bundle up. So this week, you can leave your boots at home, because this warm streak is supposed to last for quite a few more days, and instead pack your walking shoes, because exploring town on foot is one of the best ways to drink in the village’s unparalleled holiday cheer. But don’t forget to send the former President wishes for a speedy recovery if you find yourself strolling by the Bush family compound – we certainly are!
