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 visitor. So our days are just jam-packed keeping our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast in ship-shape.
But we can’t stop there, because we always want to keep things interesting by throwing in a bunch of big time renovations and major design projects. We’ve teased you with a few sneak peeks at our design work, but now we have some real photos to show.
Sometimes, though a small change turns out to totally transform a room – and it’s always a real surprise! This year we decided that Abbie’s Retreat Room 17 really needed a gas burning fireplace to complete it – I mean, with a plush pillow top king bed and double whirlpool tub, it was just begging for a fireplace too! Who would have thought that would totally change the vibe, but it totally did! Even with cool colors, it is such a warm and inviting space (and not just temperature wise!). This year, though, all four rooms on the second floor of the Main house got new looks, with small but powerful changes in Captain Walker’s Suite, and complete redesigns in both Rooms 15 and 18. Despite the face that Room 15 was well loved, it was time for a new look, and boy did we deliver – now “The Elmview Room” boasts a modern take on the traditional bed and breakfast experience. While I’d love to go on about our many renovations this winter, you’ll have to stay tuned for more on our design changes, because this entry is just getting too long! We know you’ll enjoy our changes in Room 15 as we bring an updated look to our loved Victorian, but don’t forget to let us know what you think about the updates to our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast!
