It’s Definitely Fall Foliage on the Maine Coast!

Today was one spectacular day, with unseasonably warm temps, cloudless skies, and perfect viewing of the fall foliage along the Maine Coast.  Some areas of the globe refer to New England’s fall foliage season as “Indian Summer,” and that was absolutely appropriate this weekend with thermometers rising in Kennebunkport Maine into the 80s and an amazing display of colors! It’s hard to believe, though, but Yankee Magazine’s Foliage Map only lists our area as turning – which is great for everyone (myself included) that… Read More

Now that fall is upon us, we’ve been busy incorporating great fall flavors into our breakfast menu.  While breakfast at the Maine Stay Inn varies greatly from day to day, we try to utilize the freshest products and serving up hearty and nutritious breakfasts with enough variety for all palates. We’re serving up delicious fall menus!  Our morning menu changes daily, but we usually alternate between sweet and savory entrees.  But don’t worry if you don’t love sweet breakfasts, because even if it’s a “sweet day,” we always include savory sides for… Read More

A Visit to the Portland Head Lighthouse

On a recent stunning fall afternoon, I decided to visit a favorite location for many aspiring photographers and lighthouse fanatics – the Portland Head Lighthouse.  Located just on the border of Cape Elizabeth and Portland, this historic lighthouse (first lit in 1791) is situated on a 90 acred park, which is perfect for enjoying breathtaking views of the Maine Coast. While the lighthouse also features a museum that operates from 10-4 every day, I decided to visit just prior to sunset to… Read More

Great Savings at the Ogunquit Playhouse This Fall!
