Snow Day fun at a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

Many folks around New England are going to enjoy an unexpected snow day tomorrow, but we think the best way to spend a day is at a Kennebunkport bed and breakfast!  Honestly, what could be better than playing in some fresh powder?  Yes, we’re forecasted to get all white stuff, unlike the southern coastlines of New England, and we’re excited and raring to go!  Fortunately for us, Kennebunkport is tops when it comes to snow removal, which means that even in some of the most challenging storms, driving around town is no sweat – or stress (but we always recommend exercising caution on the road!).  But the idea of celebrating a much needed snow day in town got me thinking about some of my favorite ways to enjoy a fresh coating of snow, so here are some of my

top picks!

  • Grab your snowshoes and go exploring one one of the great golf courses or amazing nature preserves in the area!  With thousands of acres of land to explore a stone’s throw from our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast.  Not to fret – if you forgotyours at home or have never given them a try, Harris Farm in Dayton has rentals of snowshoes and cross country skis to use on their miles of groomed trails.  Plus, you can warm up with hot cocoa in their warming hut afterwards!
  • Sometimes a snowstorm is the perfect excuse to catch up on your favorite films with a trip to the movie theater.  And at nearby Smitty’s Cinema, you can stay all day, because not only can you order real food (delivered to your table in the theater), but their oversized leather recliners mean that you’ll be comfortable flick after flick!  Not willing to change out of your jammies?  Borrow a movie or two from our collection and enjoy them in the privacy of your room or suite and you’ll have control over stop and start!
  • Lace up your boots and stroll along the coast, because there is absolutely nothing more stunning than the waves lashing the coastline, so enjoy it.  Or Instagram it.
  • Snuggle!  No seriously, I just love cozying up on a comfy couch with a good book, reveling in the heat of a glowing fire, and staring out the window as snow quietly falls around me.  And for a change of scenery, you can grab freshly baked cookies at teatime and hop in the tub for a leisurely soak.  No sore shoveling muscles for you, because the Maine Stay Inn is taking care of it!

So get ready for a snow day like no other, because spending it at a Kennebunkport bed and breakfast is a fun and relaxing way to enjoy wintertime in New England.  Let the snow begin, because once it’s over you can enjoy winter wonderland fun in the sun!
