B&Bs for Vets in Kennebunkport Maine

This year, we decided to mix things up a bit and, instead of giving this experience to those who ask first, we requested submissions from disabled and active duty vets to tell us why a stay in Kennebunkport Maine would be important to… Read More

Happy October From the Maine Coast!

It’s hard to believe, but October is actually here!  So here’s to a happy October from all of us on the Maine Coast!  But I can’t very well write a post entirely about it being October 1, which also means that it is the start of National Pizza Month.  And while you might associate candy corn and fun size candy bars with this month, it’s also the perfect opportunity to indulge in slices a little more frequently than you might otherwise. Fortunately, Kennebunkport has… Read More

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!
