A Gorgeous Day In Kennebunkport

At daybreak this morning, Kennebunkport was cloaked in a bit of fog, clouds, and even some light rain – not exactly ideal  for a day at the beach! But much to everyone’s delight, by the time breakfast was over, the weather had completely changed, with intense summer sun and bright cloudless skies. It certainly makes one wonder how is it exactly that the weathermen can get the forecast wrong so often… But when it was as beautiful as today, you certainly couldn’t worry about for… Read More

What is a Bed and Breakfast Really Like?

As someone who has stayed at B&Bs even as a kid, I am always surprised at how many folks have never experienced a bed and breakfast.  So it seems like a good idea to answer your questions about what it is really like to stay at a Maine bed and breakfast.  I am always surprised when people tell me that they think staying at a bed and breakfast is kind of like staying at your grandmother’s house, complete with shared bathrooms and nosy neighbors.… Read More

Enjoying Indoor Activities in Kennebunkport

As I watched a beautiful sunset in Kennebunkport this evening, I was reminded by a friend that not everyone likes the great outdoors.  So that got me thinking about how many incredible opportunities there are for indoor fun in the area! Granted, the first thing that I think about is food… pretty much always, so I would be remiss not to mention the fact that there are phenomenal restaurants in Kennebunkport that have comfortable indoor dining rooms.  Yes, you don’t have to… Read More

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast’s Website Gets a Facelift

Over the past few years we’ve been working on reshaping the Maine Stay Inn‘s image, replacing the… Read More

A Great Memorial Day Weekend in Kennebunkport Maine!

It’s hard to believe that Memorial Day Weekend has come and gone, and that means that summer has arrived in Kennebunkport Maine! And while the weather forecast looked more than a bit iffy, Mother Nature, brought us some truly gorgeous weather this weekend. Even though temps were warm, no one decided to eat on the porch – lots opted for romantic breakfasts in their very own cottage suites, and another good bunch chose to be social with other guests. They lounged, drank coffee,… Read More

An Afternoon at the Beach in Kennebunkport Maine

Although the day’s forecast looked a little questionable this morning, today turned out to be an absolutely incredible one in Kennebunkport Maine, so we headed to beach.  Beaches, actually! With truly stellar weather this Memorial Day Weekend, it just seemed appropriate to visit as many as possible. The ocean could be something that you might take for granted when living in vacationland, but any time you check out a new cove or secret spot it feels entirely new! So this afternoon, we headed… Read More

Kennebunkport Maine Welcomes Summer!

With Memorial Day Weekend finally here, and some great weather gracing Kennebunkport Maine, we’ve been working on the gardens and outdoor spaces, but come Monday, the area beaches are sure to be calling! With temps supposed to reach almost 80, I for one am going to be especially psyched that some of New England’s most beautiful beaches are just a stone’s throw from our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast!  But while we provide the beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, and even sand toys, you will still have… Read More

Kennebunkport Cottage Suite 10 Gets a New Look!

At the Maine Stay Inn, keeping things new and interesting on the property is always at the top of our priority list, and we just received pictures of our latest renovations – Kennebunkport Cottage Suite #10′s new look! With two double beds, and a casual feel, we really wanted to channel the quintessential Maine cottage, with airy tones and summery blues, but with a fresh, modern twist.  We said farewell to the darling old wallpaper and traditional artwork and replaced it with… Read More
