Celebrate Valentine’s Day With a Romantic Getaway on the Maine Coast

Red roses, cute cards, and heart-shaped boxes of chocolate are the first things that come to mind for many people when thinking of Valentine’s Day, but a truly romantic celebration calls for something out of the ordinary – like a getaway to the Maine Coast! And with Kennebunkport Maine celebrating its annual “Paint the Town Red” festival, there isn’t a more romantic destination to be found on the East Coast. But with less than a week before V-day, we wanted to share… Read More

Paint The Town Red Underway in Kennebunkport

Some may see the displays of cards… Read More

Ring in 2017 at a Maine Bed and Breakfast!

This year the festivities continue with Christmas and Hanukkah, with New Year’s Eve not long after! And to send off the 2016 holiday season with a bang, the Maine Stay Inn hosts a great New Year’s Eve… Read More

Sunrise Sightseeing on the Maine Coast

One of the wonderful things about the early autumn is that the sun rises a little bit later in the day, which means that enjoying a scenic sunrise on the Maine Coast doesn’t mean missing out on too much shut-eye! A few mornings ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to go for an early jog along the coast and that got me thinking about some of the most beautiful spots to enjoy the sunrise on the Kennebunkport coastline! I have written before… Read More

Exploring The Maine Coast in September

On a beautiful summer night like tonight, it’s hard to believe that Labor Day Weekend is coming up quickly and September will be here before we know it. And while that means “back to school” season is approaching, it also means the start of an incredible fall season here on the Maine Coast! In fact, I think September might be my absolute favorite month in Kennebunkport Maine! While many people think that September marks the start of autumn, the first few weeks are… Read More

5 Best Places to Eat Lobster in Southern Maine

I don’t think there’s a single restaurant in Southern Maine that doesn’t serve lobster in some form, but there are a few restaurants that make my list of 5 Best Places to Eat Lobster. Now, I am a little bit partial to Kennebunkport, but there are some truly notable locations to enjoy lobster dinners, but certainly not all of my top 5 are located in town! In an effort to be totally honest, though, this is Maine after all. Lobster is going to be… Read More

Enjoying A Classic Lobster Dinner in Kennebunkport

Kennebunkport is one of those coastal Maine spots where you can find delicious lobster almost anywhere, but there are very few spots I believe serve the perfect classic lobster dinner. Honestly, though, this is Maine. The lobster is going to be good and fresh just about anywhere. Now, I am a lifelong lobster connoisseur (seriously, just ask my mother), so I will be the first to admit that there is an immense difference between a decent lobster and a knock your socks off, crave-inducing, must drive hundreds… Read More

Hikes and Nature Walks on the Maine Coast

Now that the leaves are really popping out and the bright green spring foliage is in bloom, some of the best activities to enjoy on the Maine Coast are hikes and nature walks. And, fortunately, there are tons of great opportunities for trips that suit all fitness levels and attention spans not far from the Maine Stay Inn.

Thanksgiving Eve in Kennebunkport

It’s hard to believe that today marks the 12th anniversary of our family’s first visit to Kennebunkport.  As the snow falls gently around the Maine Stay Inn, the quiet that comes with a snowstorm allows for some reflection on my first visit to this town that I loved at first arrival.  While that day 12 years ago wasn’t quite as blustery as today, snow fell during our Thanksgiving visit to Kennebunkport.  I guess a “White Thanksgiving” is kind of a thing here!… Read More
