The 2015 Kennebunkport Festival Is Coming!

  Every June an exciting food, wine, and art festival comes to town and this year is no exception, as we welcome the Kennebunkport Festival 2015!  So this year from June 8th-13th (or as few or many as you would like!) you can indulge in the finest dining prepared by chefs from the most influential restaurants in Maine. Even Laudholm Farm plays host for the Kennebunkport Festival! And the Festival gets even better, because while you can choose from events at local fine dining restaurants or at… Read More

Memorial Day Weekend in Kennebunkport

It’s hard to believe that Memorial Day Weekend is here, and that means that summer has arrived in Kennebunkport! The weather has been absolutely stellar (and very summery feeling), which has made the kick off of summer in town a real hit! Today’s temps soared near 80, which meant that many folks flocked to the beach, but the mornings were just a touch too chilly for eating on the porch. And with the hanging baskets of flowers up and the fresh coat of… Read More

Celebrating Mother’s Day at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast!

In Kennebunkport Maine, as with anywhere else in the nation, tomorrow is a big day – it’s Mother’s Day! This weekend, we’ve had the pleasure of meeting some incredible moms (and kids wishing they were celebrating with their moms) at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast. Some are enjoying a weekend away from their little ones with breakfast in bed fit for a queen (though we’re not spilling the beans on the menu yet!), while others are being honored for doing such a good job raising their children… Read More

Cinco De Mayo in Kennebunkport!

May 5 is a fun and exciting day no matter where you are in the world, but there’s no place I would rather celebrate Cinco de Mayo than in Kennebunkport! Not too many people went all out to celebrate, but it is a festive day no matter what. We usually start off the day right with celebratory breakfast like huevos rancheros or a breakfast burrito, but we got our menu planning confused this year! But not to worry, our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast will get it right… Read More

Treat Mom To A Mother’s Day Getaway in Kennebunkport

Just in case you’ve forgotten, Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 10, and while families around the country are busy figuring out the details on how to treat Mom like a queen this year, there’s one sure-fire way to surprise her – with a getaway to a Maine Bed and Breakfast! So instead of pouring mom a bowl of cereal and a glass of OJ (possibly spilled while attempting to serve in bed), treat her to gourmet breakfast at the Maine Stay! She won’t… Read More

Feeling Irish: Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Kennebunkport

Valentine’s Day may seem like just yesterday, but St. Patrick’s Day is rapidly approaching, and fortunately there are great places to enjoy the luck of the Irish in Kennebunkport. Ryan’s Corner House, an authentic Irish pub, sits just around the corner from the Maine Stay Inn. Whether you’re looking for a great Guinness or some good old corned beef and cabbage, there is something on the menu that is sure to be up your alley. But Kennebunkport is lucky to have another great option for St. Patrick’s… Read More

Valentine’s Day is Almost Here!

It’s hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and love is definitely in the air, because Kennebunkport is painted red in honor of this romantic time of year.  We know that Kennebunkport is New England’s most romantic destination, and to showcase that, local businesses are decked out in Valentine’s Day decor!  But since it’s not always possible to celebrate your love on February 14, Kennebunkport is making sure that it’s ready for your romantic getaway all month long.… Read More

Superbowl Sunday in Kennebunkport Maine

It’s hard to believe that Superbowl Sunday is just a week away, and after the “Deflategate” scandal, even the non football fans are surely going to be tuning in from Kennebunkport.  While I am definitely not a regular sports watcher, this broadcast tops my “must-see” list for next weekend, and there’s no better place (aside from the stadium, perhaps) to watch than one of the great pubs around Kennebunkport Maine.  Now since the commercials are my favorite part of the Superbowl, and I… Read More

New Year’s Day at the Maine Stay!

After a fun and relaxing evening at the Maine Stay Inn, full of excellent food, wonderful company, and, of course, watching the infamous ball drop in Times Square, New Year’s Eve gave way to a stunning New Year’s Day in Kennebunkport!  The morning broke with beautifully blue skies, but fortunately only the birds had to be awake for it, because brunch was on the menu instead! This year we dished up a delicious three-course brunch to ring in the new year.  First… Read More

Celebrating New Year’s Eve in Kennebunkport

The Christmas holiday gave all of us at the Maine Stay a chance to enjoy some relaxation time with family, and we’re all recharged and ready to start preparing to ring in the new year in Kennebunkport.  While some people choose to enjoy dinners out, many visitors choose to forgo a restaurant dinner and enjoy the festivities right inside the Maine Stay Inn with our annual New Year’s Eve party.  We started this annual tradition years ago in a low key gathering for staff, local friends, and… Read More
