Kennebunkport is New England’s Prettiest Coastal Town!

Yankee magazine has recently released an article called “10 Prettiest Coastal Towns in New England,” and, of course, Kennebunkport Maine tops the list! So while I am totally unsurprised to see this incredible village on the Maine coast topping the list, I sure am happy to see that the things I love about Kennebunkport are the same things that this New England magazine appreciates as well.  I mean, with no commercial chains or franchises, historic homes, quaint shops, and a stunning coastline,… Read More

Favorite Summer Activities on the Maine Coast

After looking at this week’s forecast and my recent blogs, I decided that we are way overdue for a list of some of the favorite activities during the summertime and early fall along the Maine Coast.  It’s not really fair to limit this list to Kennebunkport Maine, because there is so much to do in the general area, and most visitors do actually visit out of Kennebunkport town lines at some point during their visit! They might not actually be aware that… Read More

Third Night Free to Start September!

September is really the forgotten month of summer on the Maine coast, and Kennebunkport is no exception!  And to start off the month right, you can enjoy three nights at the Maine Stay Inn for the price of two.  That means three days of glorious weather on the ocean, three gourmet breakfasts, and three days of our signature afternoon cookies and refreshing iced tea.  So soak up some sun and savings this September.  You deserve some extra rest and relaxation after what… Read More

A Summer Evening on the Maine Coast

Today was an absolutely gorgeous day, and it gave way to an equally beautiful evening, which just begged for a stroll along the Maine Coastline in Kennebunkport and through Dock Square.  A night like tonight just begs for dinner on the water, and fortunately for visitors to Kennebunkport (and those of us who live here too!) there are lots of wonderful outdoor dining establishments in the area.  Just steps from the Maine Stay Inn, you’ll find the Arundel Wharf Restaurant, a classic… Read More

Kennebunkport Ice Cream is Tops in the Nation

Sometimes I worry about sounding like a broken record, because there is so much I love about Kennebunkport, and one of those things is the incredible ice cream at Dock Square’s Rococo.  And recently the travel news confirmed what we at the Maine Stay Inn already know – that Rococo has some of the best ice cream in the entire country! Not just in Maine, or even New England, but Kennebunkport’s Rococo sits firmly in the list of the top ten best… Read More

Circus Smirkus Is Coming to the Maine Coast!

Every summer, the Big Top returns to Kennebunkport as Circus Smirkus begins its run on the Maine Coast!  This coming Thursday and Friday will bring four shows to the Rockin’ Horse Stables, just a few miles from the Maine Stay Inn.  This incredible youth circus tours New England with its pint sized performers.  But don’t let their size or age fool you, because these 10 to 18 year olds have more talent than you could ever imagine!  Their single ring circus will be… Read More

MaineStage Shakespeare Is Coming to the Maine Stay!

  Kennebunkport is really lucky to have incredible opportunities for enjoying theater in the area, and this year, a fantastic Shakespeare company has brought its open air performances to the Kennebunkport Town Green this summer.  This weekend, though, MacBeth is coming to the Maine Stay Inn! This Saturday afternoon, you can enjoy delicious treats in our backyard, and enjoy a scene performed by the talented actors of the MaineStage Shakespeare Company.  This four-year-old company features graduate students in the performing arts from… Read More

10 Best Things About Summer on the Maine Coast

Even though tonight was little bit cloudy, it was pretty much a perfect summer evening in Kennebunkport Maine.  The weather is warm, and the slight breeze kicks up the smell of salt air, making a light cardigan the perfect thing to pair with shorts.  There’s not humidity, which means perfect sleeping weather, and the sun doesn’t set until quite late.  And after spending the day working in the garden, I really got thinking about some of my favorite things about summer along… Read More

A Night of Theater in Kennebunkport

After a day exploring the great outdoors in Kennebunkport, the idea of a relaxing evening at the theater can be really appealing, and fortunately there are lots of great opportunities right nearby!  So whether you want to see a live musical, a traditional Shakespearean play, or a feature film, you won’t have to venture far from the Maine Stay Inn to enjoy the production of your choice.  This year, MaineStage Shakespeare is bringing its phenomenal open air Shakespeare performances to the Kennebunkport Town Green and the Colony… Read More

Where Can You Find the Best Lobster Restaurant in Kennebunkport?

I can’t think of a single restaurant in Kennebunkport where you can’t get some kind of lobster, but that doesn’t mean that they all have the very best lobster in town.  Now let’s be honest – this is Maine, after all, so chances are pretty darn good the lobster will be fresh and tasty just about anywhere.  But as a lifelong lobster connoisseur (seriously, just ask my mother), I will tell you that there is huge difference between a decent lobster and one that knocks your socks… Read More
