Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Goes Social

It is a common misconception that B&Bs reside in the “dark ages,” but with our attention to social media, this Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is proving that wrong!  Honestly, though, anyone who doesn’t live with their head in the sand knows that social media is not going away (thank goodness, because what would I do without it?!), so embracing it is key.  It’s been rather challenging to convince Walter of this, but even he is considering getting an iPhone and learning about Twitter.  He… Read More

Where Do Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfasts Get Flowers?

As we all know, Valentine’s Day seems almost synonymous with floral arrangements, and the need for flowers at Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfasts is perhaps even greater than most.  Fortunately for us, though, there are ample florists located just a stone’s throw from the inn. Fleurant, a combination home-good and floral shop, is conveniently located in Lower Village Kennebunk.  While you wait for your exotic potted plant or cut flowers to be arranged and packaged for travel, you’ll surely keep yourself occupied by… Read More

Privacy at a Maine Bed and Breakfast? Got it!

It never fails to surprise me when someone enquiring about our Maine Bed and Breakfast asks about privacy.  Honestly, that’s never something we have to worry about at the Maine Stay, partially because of the construction and layout of the property.  Somewhere along the line, though, BnBs got a bad rap in that department, and I just can’t figure out where.  Granted I know my parents stayed at a variety of glorified bunkhouses passing themselves off as bed and breakfasts in the… Read More

Kennebunkport Maine Takes on Little Rock

Every year the Professional Association of Innkeeping International hosts a conference helping educated Innkeepers on how to be (and stay) the best they can possibly be, so this year we headed from Kennebunkport Maine to Little Rock, Arkansas for a week of schooling.  Yes, we are having fun, and yes, we are doing a little shopping (though it’s the wholesale variety), but the primary purpose is to educate ourselves on the changes facing the hospitality industry and how to stay on top… Read More

Karen Brown and Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

Although many visitors to our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast arrive on the recommendation of Karen Brown and her New England Guidebook, many others have never heard of this valuable travel resource.  Honestly, it wasn’t obvious to me why so many choose to rely on Karen Brown’s expertise for guidance when planning trips both within the United States and abroad.  All that changed recently, when I had the opportunity to speak personally with Karen and to actually read one of her books.  I… Read More

Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Honors Veterans

As a way to thank members of our military, both active and retired, for their service to this great nation, we donated several rooms at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfastto veterans and their families last night.  For the second year in a row, we have woken up on Veterans’ Day to a dining room full of folks who have done us all a great service.  We were honored to listen to some of their fantastic stories and share their company.  Last night,… Read More

When Walter’s in Charge of Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

In our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, the ladies tend to take charge of the morning routine – making and serving breakfast, brewing coffee, and getting guests set with their daily activities.  For nearly four years, Judi has been threatening Walter that one day he will be in charge of breakfast.  The threats seemed empty – until recently, that is.  As usual, Walter was taking credit for breakfast preparation and execution, and the “ladies” just had it!  So we picked a day when… Read More

Recycling at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

Guests at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast often ask about whether we recycle, and I always answer with a resounding, “Yes!”  While our rooms and suites might not feature those ugly, divided waste bins, all of the staff at the Maine Stay is committed to protecting the environment.  As a result, we sort through your bins each and every day, recycling as much as we can.  That may seem a little icky, but we’re just that committed. Three and a half years… Read More
