Celebrating New Year's Eve in Kennebunkport

As many of you know, New Year’s is a big deal at the Maine Stay Inn, and this year was no exception!  It’s a great opportunity for visitors to enjoy a winter wonderland in Kennebunkport and have the option to be as relaxed or as social as they want.  Plus, getting to celebrate with friends, both new and old, is always a great experience.  Many of our regular New Year’s Eve guests

We lit up Kennebunkport with our fun New Year’s Eve celebration!

decided to forgo a fancy dinner out and chose to enjoy lunch around town, before returning to the inn for an evening of fun, food, and firework watching (on television, of course!).  Because we know that dining out on New Year’s Eve can sometimes be more of a to-do than folks are in the mood for, at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast, we offer hearty foods throughout the evening.  Finger foods, appetizers, munchies, and some heartier dishes mean that many people enjoyed their “dinner” at the inn, while others just popped in for a nibble before or after their evening reservations.  And while we couldn’t wait until midnight to break out an assortment of delectable desserts, we certainly noshed on more as the clock hit 12!  In fact, we almost missed the dropping of the ball, because we were all enjoying the hysterical old-school games we played throughout the evening.

On New Year’s Day, we served (and delivered to quite a few cottage suites) a four-course brunch.  Yes, I do mean a real brunch!  We started serving around 11 am, but many guests lingered into the early afternoon, enjoying a leisurely meal and a chance to socialize with other visitors.  But for folks who prefer to enjoy an intimate meal with their partner, they can always choose breakfast delivered to the Cottage Suites or Deluxe Fireplace Suite 12 in the main house.  All of us could not have asked for a more wonderful group of new and old friends to start the new year with in Kennebunkport, and hope that all of you had the opportunity to ring in a happy and healthy 2013 with special people in your lives.
