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

Spending Father’s Day in Kennebunkport

I don’t know about you, but there are only a few things that my dad cares about on Father’s Day – good food, good beer, and good golfing – all things you can find in and around our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast.  And while I feel like I harp on it a lot while blogging, there is such great food in Kennebunkport!  Whether you’re looking for an elegant steak dinner or just a great burger, you’re certain to find a fantastic meal for every… Read More

The Kennebunkport Festival is Here!

The Kennebunkport Festival officially marks the kick-off of summer in Maine, bringing loads of exciting events to town.  With a focus on the finest things in life, including food, wines and spirits, and stunning artwork, this festival brings loads of exciting events to Kennebunkport. In addition to enjoying incredible artwork all around the community (including the display of historic American architecture), some of my personal favorite events center around food – of course!  This year, instead of a Grand Tasting, the Kennebunkport Festival will… Read More

Historic Kennebunkport Inns Prepare for Garden Party

Now that the Kennebunkport Festival is underway, our group of Kennebunkport inns are busy preparing for this weekend’s Garden Party.  This Saturday, guests of any of the Historic Inns of Kennebunkport can enjoy tours of each of the four unique properties, as well as a signature snack and beverage! But not only will visitors have the opportunity to explore each of these inns (the Maine Stay Inn, included), they can mingle with other guests from across the nation and even the globe!  Now, we know… Read More

A Great Memorial Day Weekend in Kennebunkport Maine!

It’s hard to believe that Memorial Day Weekend has come and gone, and that means that summer has arrived in Kennebunkport Maine! And while the weather forecast looked more than a bit iffy, Mother Nature, brought us some truly gorgeous weather this weekend. Even though temps were warm, no one decided to eat on the porch – lots opted for romantic breakfasts in their very own cottage suites, and another good bunch chose to be social with other guests. They lounged, drank coffee,… Read More

Kennebunkport Festival 2014 is Coming!

Each year during the first week of June, an exciting food, wine, and art festival comes to town and this year is no exception, as we welcome the Kennebunkport Festival 2014!  So for six full days (or as few or many as you would like!) you can indulge in the finest dining prepared by chefs from the most renowned restaurants in the state. But it gets even better, because while you can choose from events at local fine dining restaurants or at incredible private… Read More

Memorial Day Weekend at Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

It’s hard to believe that Memorial Day Weekend is almost here, and that means that summer has arrived in Kennebunkport Maine!  Now that our huge renovation project in Cottage 6 is finally finished, we’ve turned our attention to getting the front porch ready for lots of warm weather lounging.  And now that the tables and chairs and lounging furniture is out, we’re ready to celebrate. So this Memorial Day Weekend, you can enjoy our gourmet breakfast on the wraparound porch, relax with some… Read More
