While you’ll certainly go over a river, and possibly through some woods, you sure won’t feel like you’re off to grandmother’s house when you’re en route to a Maine bed and breakfast! Fortunately Kennebunkport doesn’t sit too far from Interstate 95, which means that visitors should expect and easy trip up (or down) to town. And with three exits in close proximity, even missing your desired exit won’t throw much of a kink in your plans. The truth is, honestly, that the Maine Stay Inn is a cinch to find and an easy drive from any of the metropolitan areas in the northeast. And whether you choose to travel by plane, train or automobile, there are great options to get you where you want to go.
Situated just 86 miles from Boston, our Maine bed and breakfast is a quick trip up the pike, but I always like to allow two hours – just in case you hit a little traffic around the tolls or in the event of a bathroom break or snack stop. Sometimes, though, you’ve got to allow a tad bit more time… because a girl’s gotta shop, doesn’t she?! And if you’re in the mood for some retail therapy, exit 2 off the Maine Turnpike will lead you to Route 1 and the Kittery Tanger Outlets. With shops featuring basically any brand you could imagine, the Outlets offer great products at great prices. Now, if you’re not in a hurry to end up in Kennebunkport Maine, continuing on Route 1 can be a fun trip, and a stop at Yummies Candy store, which keeps over 10,000 pounds of candy on display. Just a bit further north lies Stonewall Kitchen and its flagship location, featuring a cooking school, cafe, and tour-able factory, not to mention the shop with irresistible packaged treats. Continuing on Route 1, you’ll pass through the towns of York, Ogunquit, and Wells, each of which has a unique character and some great spots to eat and shop! Most visitors to our Maine bed and breakfast choose to do their leisurely explorations after checking in, so they usually take exit 19 from the south (or 32 if they are coming from the north). But if the beautiful Maine landscape is causing some distracted driving, hopping off at exit 25 won’t disappoint, as Route 35, the main drag from Kennebunk to Kennebunkport features some of the most beautiful homes you’ll ever see. No matter how you go about finding your way to our Maine bed and breakfast, we’re located in a great spot for all of your favorite Kennebunkport activities.
