Looking Forward to Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport

A recent cold snap has really gotten me in the mood to celebrate the upcoming holiday season, and with Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s perfectly appropriate! Turkey Day in Kennebunkport Maine is a particularly lovely time, and that sentiment is always shared by our turkey day visitors. So in addition to enjoying a delectable meal (without the struggle), one of the best things about Thanksgiving is watching the community prepare itself for Christmas Prelude!  There’s something about “decking the halls” that just gets you… Read More

Veterans Save 50% at Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

Many people are looking forward to celebrating Veteran’s Day this week, and while it’s easy to forget the reason why we have an extra day off from work or school, our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast is taking the opportunity to honor our nation’s veterans.  Unlike Memorial Day, which honors fallen veterans, most communities don’t celebrate with a parade or armed salute in a local cemetery, so it is easy to forget what this national holiday is all about.  We’re expressing our gratitude for those… Read More

Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport

I may be a little bit biased, but celebrating Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport Maine is a particularly special time of year, and each year our turkey day visitors agree!  One of the must enjoyable things about Thanksgiving is getting to watch Kennebunkport prepare itself for the holiday season and our famous festival, Christmas Prelude. Each year, the stunning fall foliage fades and the mercury drops along with the leaves, making way for holiday decorating!  And it’s a darn good thing, because the holiday scenery just wouldn’t be the same… Read More

B&Bs for Vets in Kennebunkport Maine

As a way to thank members of the United States military for their service to this great nation, our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast donates several rooms to veterans each year on Veterans’ Day as part of the “B&Bs for Vets” program. This year, we decided to mix things up a bit and, instead of giving this experience to those who ask first, we requested submissions from disabled and active duty vets to tell us why a stay in Kennebunkport Maine would be important to… Read More

Celebrating Columbus Day Weekend in Kennebunkport

Columbus Day Weekend is already upon us and with it comes some of incredibly fun fall events to enjoy in Kennebunkport.  The forecast is looking great, and we won’t tell if you decide to play hooky on Friday too! Catch a show at the Ogunquit Playhouse!  The Addams Family musical sure to get you in the spirit of fall and start preparing you for Halloween (yes, it really is coming – I have already bought and eaten enough candy to know it’s true).Consider hopping aboard one… Read More

Happy October From the Maine Coast!

It’s hard to believe, but October is actually here!  So here’s to a happy October from all of us on the Maine Coast!  But I can’t very well write a post entirely about it being October 1, which also means that it is the start of National Pizza Month.  And while you might associate candy corn and fun size candy bars with this month, it’s also the perfect opportunity to indulge in slices a little more frequently than you might otherwise. Fortunately, Kennebunkport has… Read More

Gearing Up For July 4th in Kennebunkport

Our flag will be flying high on July 4th! It’s hard to believe that July 4th is right around the corner, but with summer in the air, we really know it’s true! And now that summertime is really here, the Kennebunkport hotels and bed and breakfasts are gearing up for a great celebration!  And as we get closer to Independence Day, hints of red, white and blue crop up all around Kennebunkport.  The Maine Stay Inn is no exception, as we fly the American… Read More

George HW Bush Turns 90 in Kennebunkport

Birthday celebrations in Kennebunkport are always special experiences, but a special Kennebunkport resident celebrated his 90th birthday in a really unique way today!  George H.W. Bush (aka “41”) turned 90 today, and just like he did on his 80th and 85th birthdays, chose to celebrate by skydiving.  While the skies were a bit cloudy, the weather was just right for the former President to leap from a plane onto his estate on Walkers Point. This exciting announcement was made this morning on… Read More

A Maine Bed and Breakfast for Father’s Day!

It’s incredible to think that Father’s Day is just around the corner, and many of us, myself included, are trying to figure out how to honor the amazing men in our lives.  So this year treat him to what he really needs – a getaway to a Maine bed and breakfast and a weekend away from his to-do list! Sure, there’s something very nice about watching him unwrap a new tool or a new grill, but most guys I know really want to put his feet up… Read More
