Taking the Train to Maine

It may seem a little crazy, but one of my favorite things is taking the train, so I remember being absolutely delighted when I found out that the Amtrak Downeaster is a line that lets folks take the train to Maine!  So whether you’re car-less, looking to reduce your carbon footprint, or just in the mood to sit back and let someone else do the driving, there is a great option that brings travelers from Boston (and beyond) through coastal New Hampshire… Read More

April Vacation Week in Kennebunkport

The weather in Kennebunkport can sure keep you on your toes, and this April Vacation week is no exception!  Yesterday felt like late spring or early summer with temps soaring into the seventies, but today definitely felt more like early Spring, with sun, clouds, wind, rain, chill and warmth…all in the same day!  They say that if you don’t like the weather in New England, wait ten minutes and that sure was true today!  And this great weather means that the beach… Read More

Charity Benefit at our Maine Bed and Breakfast

Patriot’s Day is not just a regional holiday, but also the start of a feel-good period for our Maine Bed and Breakfast, when we offer guests the opportunity to stay for half price – in exchange for a small donation to Habitat for Humanity.  The Maine Stay Inn and other inns across the state open their doors and slash rates to support Maine based chapters of Habitat for Humanity.  So from April 21 until May 23, you can visit Kennebunkport Maine on Sundays through Thursday evenings and indulge… Read More

Easter and Passover at a Maine Bed and Breakfast

Not only is spring finally here, but it is also one of the few times of year when two major faiths are celebrating holidays – Passover and Easter – and we think that there’s no better place to enjoy the festivities than at a Maine bed and breakfast!  That means that millions of people around the world are celebrating (not to mention enjoying amazing edible confections!), and millions of folks up and down the East Coast are celebrating the revival of the… Read More

April Vacations to Kennebunkport Maine

While this winter was especially long in New England, April is finally feeling like spring in Kennebunkport Maine, with lots of suns and seasonable temps on the forecast! Now, it doesn’t quite feel like summer vacation or time to take a plunge in the ocean, it really is lovely for exploring the seashore or heading out for a scenic bike ride.  And with April vacations weeks coming up and Patriot’s Day looming, there are all kinds of reasons to head to Kennebunkport… Read More

Planning Your Summer Vacation to a Maine Bed and Breakfast

Today I noticed buds on the trees and that the birds seemed especially active, which means it’s that time of year again – time to plan your summer vacation to a Maine bed and breakfast!  Most people can’t just spontaneously jaunt off for a couple of days along the coast, so taking that fun trip means planning.  Now, that’s not my favorite thing, especially because time is always at a premium.  But since you’ve already decided to hit coastal Maine for your vay-cay,… Read More

It’s Not Too Late: Third Night Free!

While April is fast approaching, it’s not too late to take advantage our March savings, where you’ll enjoy three nights for the price of two at the Maine Stay Inn in Kennebunkport.  And with New England’s classically confused spring weather, it’s almost like two seasons for the price of one! If anything is certain, though, it is that you will want to curl up by our cozy fires at night with your special someone, relax in our jetted tubs, and dig into our hearty gourmet… Read More

Kennebunkport Beaches Welcome Spring

While the water might be a little… Read More

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Gets a New Look

The winter months are a time period when we devote lots of time and energy to updating our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast and this year has been no exception.  Of course, we do lots of little things, like fixing the chipped paint in each and every guest room (boy, do those vacuums do a number on the baseboards!), fixing wallpaper seams, and replacing rugs that have seen better days. We move furniture and reorganize, just to make things work better for each and every… Read More

St. Patrick’s Day in Kennebunkport Maine

I’m not exactly sure where February went, but St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and fortunately there are great places to enjoy the luck of the Irish in Kennebunkport Maine.  Right in Lower Village, you’ll find Ryan’s Corner House, within an easy walk from the Maine Stay Inn. This authentic Irish pub opened just two years ago, just in time for St. Paddy’s Day, and has quickly become a local favorite.  In addition to some amazing brews, they offer fantastic Irish fare, as… Read More
