St. Patrick’s Day in Kennebunkport Maine

I’m not exactly sure where February went, but St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and fortunately there are great places to enjoy the luck of the Irish in Kennebunkport Maine.  Right in Lower Village, you’ll find Ryan’s Corner House, within an easy walk from the Maine Stay Inn. This authentic Irish pub opened just two years ago, just in time for St. Paddy’s Day, and has quickly become a local favorite.  In addition to some amazing brews, they offer fantastic Irish fare, as… Read More

Maine Restaurant Week 2014

Maine Restaurant Week is one of my favorite times of year in Kennebunkport, and it is finally back again!  Not only is it a wonderful way to test out new restaurants or enjoy different options at some old favorites, but it’s also an excuse to order more than you normally would and enjoy leftovers for lunch!  And again this year, quite a few restaurants in Kennebunkport and the surrounding area are participating in 2014.  But unlike other restaurant weeks throughout the country, the entire state… Read More

Spending Valentine’s Weekend at a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

Valentine’s Weekend is always a special time in town with “February is For Lovers”, but two recent snow storms have made spending this weekend at a Kennebunkport bed and breakfast even more special!  Sometimes I worry about sounding like a broken record, but it seems like there are still lots of people who are entirely unaware that Kennebunkport Maine is really a year round destination.  Sure, there are some shops and restaurants that close their doors during the winter months, but they… Read More

Watching the Superbowl in Kennebunkport

Although many visitors to Kennebunkport ME are bummed that the New England Patriots won’t be strutting their stuff during this weekend’s Superbowl game, I know that won’t squelch their passion for watching the big game.
