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 Old Man Winter has hung around a bit longer this year than most New Englanders would like, spring is officially here and today was perfect for enjoying a walk along the Kennebunkport Beaches!  Yes, it may have been a bit breezy, but the sunshine definitely said that Mother Nature has us right on the cusp of true springtime.  And boy was that sunshine a reminder of just how lovely the beaches are in Kennebunkport! 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

“Spring Ahead” Comes to Kennebunkport

While the first part of March has been unseasonably cool in Kennebunkport, the start of daylight savings and the “spring ahead” of the clocks coincided with a lovely Spring weekend!  So not only were we already enjoying the lengthening days, but we racked up an extra hour of daylight that we all enjoyed by spending a little extra time outside.  But boy, was it a tease, because it just made all of us at the Maine Stay Inn want more warmth, more… Read More

Maine Restaurant Week 2014

Maine Restaurant Week is one of my favorite times of year in Kennebunkport, and it is finally back again!  Not only is it a wonderful way to test out new restaurants or enjoy different options at some old favorites, but it’s also an excuse to order more than you normally would and enjoy leftovers for lunch!  And again this year, quite a few restaurants in Kennebunkport and the surrounding area are participating in 2014.  But unlike other restaurant weeks throughout the country, the entire state… Read More

Celebrating National Clam Chowder Day in Kennebunkport

While New England is certainly known for its clam chowdah, it recently came to my attention that Tuesday was National Clam Chowder Day, and there’s no better place to celebrate than in Kennebunkport Maine!  I mean, honestly, unless you’ve got a shellfish allergy, chances are very good that you’ll enjoy a cup or bowl of this semi-solid deliciousness before heading out of town.  It helps that almost every restaurant in the area has their version on this New England staple on the… Read More

New Pictures of Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast are Coming!

Although chilly weather is in this week’s forecast, everyone at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast knows that springtime is in the air, because Christian Giannelli, specialist in Inn Photography, arrived this evening. We always look forward to Christian’s visits, because over the past few years he has become a great friend.  And, after months of hard work, his visits generally mean we’ve finished some big projects.  In fact, we’ve been so busy renovating across the property that we will have to have him back for… Read More

Spending Valentine’s Weekend at a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

Valentine’s Weekend is always a special time in town with “February is For Lovers”, but two recent snow storms have made spending this weekend at a Kennebunkport bed and breakfast even more special!  Sometimes I worry about sounding like a broken record, but it seems like there are still lots of people who are entirely unaware that Kennebunkport Maine is really a year round destination.  Sure, there are some shops and restaurants that close their doors during the winter months, but they… Read More
