Christmas Prelude 2015 is Coming to Kennebunkport

Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude was voted one of the Best Christmas Festivals in the World a few years ago, and has remained on countless lists of incredible holiday festivals. And after a planning meeting this evening, I was reminded that even though autumn has just begun, the holiday season is sure to sneak up on all of us. Just a few years ago, over nine thousand people gathered in Dock Square, just steps from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, to watch the ceremonial lighting of the Christmas… Read More

Labor Day Weekend in Kennebunkport Maine

Celebrating the Fourth of July at Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast!

The Fourth of July is a big deal all across the nation, and our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is no exception!

Breakfast got off to a fun and colorful start with our raspberry mint starter, topped just for Independence Day with blueberries and whipped cream! While the skies started a little on the grey side, the clouds cleared and brought bright… Read More

July Fourth is upon us, and that means that we will get to enjoy fireworks commemorating Independence Day in Kennebunkport Maine!

Happy Father’s Day From Kennebunkport Maine!

Father’s Day weekend brought lots of warm temperatures to Kennebunkport Maine, and just like every year, we were excited to host some incredible dads this weekend.  The weekend started off with truly incredible weather, so many spent the last official days of spring enjoying the outdoors!

But whether folks opted for strolls on the beach, paddling on the Kennebunk River, or pedaling bikes along the… Read More

Celebrate Father’s Day in Kennebunkport

It seems like Mother’s Day has barely passed, but Father’s Day is already right around the corner, and there is no better spot to celebrate Dad than treating him to a getaway in Kennebunkport! Now in my family, Father’s Day is very different than Mother’s Day – there’s no breakfast in bed or special brunch. It’s all about honoring dad with an opportunity to enjoy his favorite things. And what could Dad enjoy more than good food, good beer, and good golfing? Fortunately,… 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

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.
