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

Kennebunkport Ice Cream is Tops in the Nation

Sometimes I worry about sounding like a broken record, because there is so much I love about Kennebunkport, and one of those things is the incredible ice cream at Dock Square’s Rococo.  And recently the travel news confirmed what we at the Maine Stay Inn already know – that Rococo has some of the best ice cream in the entire country! Not just in Maine, or even New England, but Kennebunkport’s Rococo sits firmly in the list of the top ten best… Read More

Where Can You Find the Best Lobster Restaurant in Kennebunkport?

I can’t think of a single restaurant in Kennebunkport where you can’t get some kind of lobster, but that doesn’t mean that they all have the very best lobster in town.  Now let’s be honest – this is Maine, after all, so chances are pretty darn good the lobster will be fresh and tasty just about anywhere.  But as a lifelong lobster connoisseur (seriously, just ask my mother), I will tell you that there is huge difference between a decent lobster and one that knocks your socks… Read More

Where Can You Have a Sunset Dinner in Kennebunkport?

After a truly gorgeous day like today, many people wanted to know where they can have dinner and watch the sunset in Kennebunkport.  The truth is, that with ocean all around Kennebunkport, the skies are stunning everywhere.  Looking down Maine Street from the Maine Stay Inn, you can see picture perfect sunsets. But that’s not exactly what most folks had in mind for this evening, especially as we had lots of anniversaries being celebrated this weekend.  So here are some restaurants with stellar water… 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

Celebrating National Clam Chowder Day in Kennebunkport

While New England is certainly known for its clam chowdah, it recently came to my attention that Tuesday was National Clam Chowder Day, and there’s no better place to celebrate than in Kennebunkport Maine!  I mean, honestly, unless you’ve got a shellfish allergy, chances are very good that you’ll enjoy a cup or bowl of this semi-solid deliciousness before heading out of town.  It helps that almost every restaurant in the area has their version on this New England staple on the… Read More

Cozy Kennebunkport Restaurants to Fight the Winter Chill!

Unlike many other Maine vacation destinations, Kennebunkport truly is a year round community, and even during this “polar vortex” there are lots of great Kennebunkport restaurants that aren’t turned off by the chilly temps.  Sure, there are a few restaurants that close up shop for the winter, but for the most part they are the ones that aren’t really built to be heated effectively.  And every year the local restauranteurs decide when to take their family vacation or close for renovations or… Read More

Finding Great Lobster in Kennebunkport During the Winter

Finding great lobster in Kennebunkport is probably at the top of nearly every visitor’s list (except you shellfish allergic folks – I send my condolences), and visiting during the winter months doesn’t change that.  And surprisingly, it doesn’t make it much harder!  But yes, I said it.  The W word.  And while there is still tons of glorious fall weather to enjoy, the days are getting a bit shorter and the temps a bit cooler.  I for one am always reluctant to… Read More

Gluten Free Bakery Options Come to Kennebunkport Maine

  Kennebunkport Maine restaurants have done a great job jumping on the gluten free bandwagon, but the coffee shops and bakeries have been slow to meet the demand.  Earlier this year, Mornings in Paris, an “old world” style coffee shop located in the heart of the Old Port of Portland, opened a new location here in Kennebunkport Maine.  They’ve brought a tremendous assortment of teas and coffee varieties, great WiFi (for free), and delicious treats to town.  But since the Maine Stay… Read More

Celebrating National Pizza Month in Kennebunkport

So while October might be known for its candy corn and fun size candy bars, it is also National Pizza Month and Kennebunkport has lots to offer in the way of pizza pies!  And while we could choose something like salad or soup to keep our blood sugar from surging, pizza is just so much more fun – and since it’s the food of the month, we’re just being festive.  It’s like a rule or something.  Right?  Fortunately, there are options for… Read More
