April Vacation Week in Kennebunkport

The weather in Kennebunkport can sure keep you on your toes, and this April Vacation week is no exception!  Yesterday felt like late spring or early summer with temps soaring into the seventies, but today definitely felt more like early Spring, with sun, clouds, wind, rain, chill and warmth…all in the same day!  They say that if you don’t like the weather in New England, wait ten minutes and that sure was true today!  And this great weather means that the beach… Read More

But there are lots of families that aren’t quite… Read More

Summer Vacation at Maine Bed and Breakfasts

Now that July Fourth has come and gone, it is definitely summer vacation time, and there’s no better place than at Maine bed and breakfasts, which offer a combination of the amenities of high end hotels and the comforts of home. Now that doesn’t mean that you’re actually going to be in someone’s home – staying at a bed and breakfast doesn’t mean sleeping in Granny’s spare bedroom.  It is, however, distinctly different from a hotel.  Generally Maine bed and breakfasts are… Read More

Ideas for February Vacation Week in Kennebunkport

Since the weather in New England has been uncharacteristically nice for this time of year, it’s natural to second-guess your beachy getaway to the tropics and consider spending February Vacation Week in Kennebunkport.  Okay, that might be a stretch.  But because it’s been so warm, you’ve probably spent a lot less time thinking about vacation than you normally would (at least I have!), and now it’s Presidents’ Day.  Vacation week is here!  And even if school vacation week isn’t something you get… Read More

Are They Ready? Bringing Children to a Maine Bed and Breakfast

At our Maine Bed and Breakfast, our adult guests are often surprised to find that we welcome families with small children in our Cottage Suites.  Their initial shock usually gives way to more bewilderment – that they weren’t aware that kiddos were around.  Yep, they couldn’t even hear them!  Generally this leads to a conversation whether our littlest guests are usually this good (yes) or how parents decide that their kids are ready for the Maine Bed and Breakfast experience. Since I… Read More
