Spring Getaway on the Maine Coast

For many schools in New England, this coming week marks April Vacation Week, which means that spring has really arrived at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast. Now that the vast majority of restaurant that close for portions of the winter have reopened, the shops have springtime window displays all set up, and the snow is almost gone, it really feels like spring has arrived on the Maine Coast. Avid birders might start to recognize the creatures that have returned to the area. And fortunately for… Read More

Captain Walker’s Suite Gets A New Look

The wintertime may be a peaceful, relaxing season in Kennebunkport, but for all of us at our Maine Stay Inn, it is full of hustle and bustle while we undertake lots of projects around the inn. And while many of those projects keep things in ship shape, the the most fun ones are the complete room transformations! We certainly tackled some big ones this year, and Captain Walker’s Suite is no exception! Its location on the second floor, overlooking both the front and back gardens, probably has… Read More

Celebrating Easter Sunday in Kennebunkport

Easter Sunday brought sunny skies and lots of bright colors to Kennebunkport today. And while there’s little foliage to speak of, the floral displays and pastel attire really brightened up the area. Although Kennebunkport is a quaint little town with just over 3,000 people, there is a surprising number of churches open for Easter service (and even more that open once the weather gets warmer). So while I’m sure I missed more than a few, here is a selection of some houses of worship our guests… Read More

Planning Your Summer Vacation to the Maine Coast

Today the temperatures soared over 65 degrees today in Kennebunkport, Maine, which means it’s time to plan your summer vacation! Personally, I’m just not good at the whole “spontaneous” thing. So, for me, that means I’ve got to plan.  And since you’ve already decided to hit the road for a coastal Maine vay-cay, I’ve put together a few questions/answers to help guide your efforts. When? July and August are prime time in Kennebunkport — there’s no question about that. June is ideal if you are… Read More

New Looks for Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

Now this might sound crazy, but one of my personal favorite things about wintertime at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is the chance to work on renovation and redesign projects. That may seem crazy, but planning a new look is a ton of fun. Although watching guests’ expressions when they walk into a room they love is definitely better! Each one of our rooms and suites has a distinct personality – you certainly won’t find that at a hotel! But what’s even more fun is… Read More

Maine Restaurant Week is Here!

Maine Restaurant Week is an incredible opportunity to explore the Maine culinary scene, and it is finally back again! Now, we all know that restaurant week is a wonderful way to test out new spots or enjoy different options at some old favorites, but I am a firm believer that it is also an excuse to order more than you normally would and enjoy leftovers for lunch! There are several participating restaurants in the Kennebunkport area. But since this restaurant week encompasses the entire state, no matter whether… Read More

Daylight Saving Time “Springs Ahead” in Kennebunkport

This winter has brought record breaking amounts of snow to New England, but Spring certainly is on its way to Kennebunkport. This morning (at 2 am) marked the start of Daylight Saving Time and today’s weather followed with sun and much warmer temperatures, so that means melting…which means spring! The extra hour of daylight we gained today is already appreciated – it’s still light out!  And the extra sunshine is perfect for exploring outside, and really makes me think about some of my favorite… Read More

Feeling Irish: Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Kennebunkport

Valentine’s Day may seem like just yesterday, but St. Patrick’s Day is rapidly approaching, and fortunately there are great places to enjoy the luck of the Irish in Kennebunkport.
