Winter Activities For Your Bed and Breakfast Getaway

With the Superbowl and Winter Olympics on the immediate horizon, I started thinking about my favorite winter activities and trends for those enjoying a bed and breakfast getaway.  Now, the first thing that comes to mind in terms of winter sports is usually skiing, and mountains are not something that Southern Maine is really known for.  But truthfully, not everyone is a ski bunny, so I don’t personally  see a lack of slopes as a big drawback when it comes to planning… Read More

Cozy Kennebunkport Restaurants to Fight the Winter Chill!

Unlike many other Maine vacation destinations, Kennebunkport truly is a year round community, and even during this “polar vortex” there are lots of great Kennebunkport restaurants that aren’t turned off by the chilly temps.  Sure, there are a few restaurants that close up shop for the winter, but for the most part they are the ones that aren’t really built to be heated effectively.  And every year the local restauranteurs decide when to take their family vacation or close for renovations or… Read More

Winter Wonderland Comes to Kennebunkport Maine

After a lifetime of living in New England, I’ve come to entirely distrust the weather forecasts, but much to my chagrin, the meteorologists were spot on this past weekend, with their snowy forecast for Kennebunkport Maine.  And truthfully, we’d all been wishing for a little of the flaky stuff to really make it feel like the holiday season.  None arrived for Thanksgiving, and the ground remained bare for the first weekend of Christmas Prelude.  The second weekend of Prelude arrived with not… Read More

Finding Great Lobster in Kennebunkport During the Winter

Finding great lobster in Kennebunkport is probably at the top of nearly every visitor’s list (except you shellfish allergic folks – I send my condolences), and visiting during the winter months doesn’t change that.  And surprisingly, it doesn’t make it much harder!  But yes, I said it.  The W word.  And while there is still tons of glorious fall weather to enjoy, the days are getting a bit shorter and the temps a bit cooler.  I for one am always reluctant to… Read More

Pumpkins! Yes, It’s Fall in Kennebunkport!

Fall Foliage Nearing Peak in Kennebunkport Maine

Just in time for Columbus Day Weekend, officials at the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry have reported that the fall foliage in Kennebunkport Maine is nearing its peak of color.  Predicting the most vibrant time to see fall foliage in New England can be very tricky, if not impossible, but you can pretty much guarantee that you’ll see some stunning shades between the last 10 days of September and the first three weeks of October.  Honestly, though, that does not… Read More
