Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast’s Website Gets a Facelift

With all of the work we’ve done around our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast this year, we decided it was time for our website to get a facelift!  It reflects our sleeker and more tailored style and we’re really happy with it, but now we’d like to hear from you – so send us your thoughts and we’ll work on incorporating them into the new design! Over the past few years we’ve been working on reshaping the Maine Stay Inn‘s image, replacing the… Read More

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

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

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

What Makes Maine Bed and Breakfasts “Charming”?

In honor of National Country Inn and Bed and Breakfast Day, Hotels.com compiled a list of their favorite B&Bs across the nation, and we were so excited to find the Maine Stay Inn on that list!  Their article “10 Charming American Bed & Breakfasts Around the US” got me thinking about what exactly makes Maine bed and breakfasts so charming and romantic.  Now, let’s be clear – charming is not the same thing as cute.  Or old.  To me, the word “charming”… Read More

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Receives Eco Friendly Award

We received some exciting news earlier this summer, when we found out that our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast was named a Green Leader by TripAdvisor!  Over the past six years, we have been working diligently to turn this historic property into an eco-friendly destination.  At first, the task seemed daunting.  I mean, how could you turn an 1860 Victorian and five guest houses into a lean, mean energy sipping machine?  And since the idea of recycling was not even considered, this seemed… Read More

Finding Your Way to a Maine Bed and Breakfast

While you’ll certainly go over a river, and possibly through some woods, you sure won’t feel like you’re off to grandmother’s house when you’re en route to a Maine bed and breakfast!  Fortunately Kennebunkport doesn’t sit too far from Interstate 95, which means that visitors should expect and easy trip up (or down) to town.  And with three exits in close proximity, even missing your desired exit won’t throw much of  a kink in your plans.  The truth is, honestly, that the… Read More

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Receives Review Award

This week, our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast received a great honor by the review website, TripAdvisor.  We’re so honored to receive the 2013 Certificate of Excellence, and want to thank those of you who have shared your experiences at the Maine Stay Inn to help us achieve this award.  We strive for excellence on a daily basis, so an honor such as this one means so much to each and every one of us at the Maine Stay.  If only we could… Read More

Kennebunkport Sends Thoughts to Boston

While today’s post on “Marathon Monday” was going to be about great running routes in Kennebunkport, the news of explosions at today’s Boston Marathon changed all that.  As former residents of Beantown and avid watchers of the Marathon, we are extremely familiar with the sights and sounds around the finish line in Boston, but know that there was nothing familiar about this typically joyous event.  We were relieved to hear messages of safety from friends in the Boston area, especially those who… Read More

Kennebunkport Innkeeper Heads to Las Vegas Conference

One of the Maine Stay Inn and Cottage’s innkeepers has just touched down in Las Vegas for the annual PAII conference.  And, no, that’s no euphemism – she really is attending courses, seminars, and meetings!  The Professional Association of Innkeepers International holds a terrific conference once a year in different cities throughout the nation, and we never miss out on a chance to learn about the ever changing hospitality industry.  So while Walter’s feeling a little jealous that Judi is skipping out on… Read More
