Super Savings for a Maine Bed and Breakfast Getaway

February 7th, 2014 by Judi Hauer

BarMarche - Wine and Romance in NYC

Raise a glass to the most romantic time of year!

With Valentine’s Day just one week away, it really is time to start planning that romantic escape and the Maine Stay is unveiling some super savings for that Maine bed and breakfast getaway you’ve been thinking about.  I mean, what could be more romantic than a few days away in beautiful Kennebunkport with your special someone?  Enjoying that gourmet breakfast you never have time to enjoy at home, freshly baked cookies in the afternoons, all in a winter wonderland setting that doesn’t require hurtling down mountains with popsicle sticks strapped to your feet!  Just kidding, I enjoy downhill skiing as much as anyone, but sometimes you just need some downtime to rest and relax.  But with plenty of great cross country skiing and snowshoeing nearby the Maine Stay Inn, outdoor athletes won’t be left in the lurch!

When most people think of a Maine bed and breakfast getaway, they think of yummy food (check! obviously…), lounging by a warm fire (check!), soaking in a deep tub (check!), and snuggling with their special someone (that one’s all you, folks!).  So this winter, you can enjoy some or all of those things at rock bottom prices:

  • $200 for a 2 night stay in one of our just renovated Standard Rooms (#15 or 18)
  • $250 for a 2 night stay in a room with a fireplace and a soaking tub or whirlpool (#14 or 17)
  • $300 for a 2 night stay in a King suite with fireplace and whirlpool tub with optional breakfast in bed! (#1, 2, or 3)

So it’s time to get crackin’, because this deal is only valid for reservations booked between now and February 17 on any Sunday through Thursday reservation until May 1!  Even if you can’t sneak away for Valentine’s Weekend, there’s still plenty of time to enjoy a romantic getaway to a Maine bed and breakfast and celebrate the “season of love” with the special person in your life.

Maine Bed and Breakfast Offers Stunning September Specials!

September 4th, 2012 by Judi Hauer

Welcome to Kennebunkport!

Now that Labor Day has passed, our Maine Bed and Breakfast wants to make sure that everyone enjoys a September getaway, because this is a hidden gem in Kennebunkport.  Many people think that summertime ends on Labor Day, but here in Maine, that couldn’t be farther from the truth!  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, and I’d gladly shout it from any rooftop, because September is incredible!!!!  And after a hot summer like this one, the water is reaching record high temperatures at the beach.  Plus, if the summertime got away from you before you took that summer vacation, the Maine Stay Inn tries to make it as easy as possible to enjoy a beach vay-cay, by providing parking passes for the Kennebunk beaches, beach towels, chairs and umbrellas!  Yep, that means you don’t have to worry about shlepping any of those things from home.  It gets better, though, because if you want to reconnect with your inner child, we’ve got sand toys, boogie boards, and skim board to make your day on the sand and in the surf that much more fun.

Now you can enjoy all the incredible things about a getaway to Kennebunkport at an even lower price!  Visit our Maine Bed and Breakfast between now and September 20th and enjoy our “September Sizzler” pricing.  That means you can plan a relaxing five day, four night vacation and pay for only three! But if you can’t play hooky from work for four days, you can take advantage of a three night escape and save 50% on your third night.  That’s not all, though, because the Maine Stay is also offering guests the opportunity to stay for just $199 on any night from Sunday to Thursday (and that’s valid on a two night stay too!).  So choose from four rooms (Victorian Charm #15, Four Poster #18, or Cottage Suites 10 or 11) for just $199 plus tax, and you’ll still enjoy our unparalleled hospitality, gourmet breakfast, Summer Vacation Package, and afternoon tea and snacks while sticking to your budget.  Don’t let this amazing deal and this incredible weather pass you by, to start planning your Maine Bed and Breakfast vacation today!

Kennebunkport Designer Show House at the Kenneth Roberts Estate

June 23rd, 2012 by Judi Hauer

The Designer Show House has finally opened in Kennebunkport!  While it’s the first of its kind in town, Designer show houses seem to be a new trend in getaway destinations, and this one is truly incredible.  The fact that this is the home of acclaimed author Kenneth Roberts just adds interest to a piece of property folks in the area have been dying to see for years.  Situated on nearly 100

Kenneth Roberts Estate Kennebunkport

acres of land between Wildes District Road (just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Maine Stay Inn) and Ocean Avenue, this 6,000 square foot stone mansion prevails over rolling fields, coastal marshes, and a lovely lily pond.  A fire destroyed the interior of the entire building in 1977, but was lovingly restored to create the perfect backdrop for the show house.  And despite the fact that each room has been designed by a different creative genius, the home remains cohesive and delightful.

So for the next three weeks, visitors can enjoy the Kennebunkport version of Extreme Makeover Home Edition in one of the most spectacular settings in the area.  And fortunately, due to its proximity to the Maine Stay, outdoor adventurers can plan to stroll over and enjoy a delightful morning (or afternoon) on the grounds before touring the home.  But best of all, ticket sales for this event support the Kennebunkport Historical Society.  So not only is visiting the house a wonderful opportunity to experience spectacular design inspiration first hand (or just satisfy your inner nosiness, if you are anything like me), but ticket sales benefit a wonderful cause!  Yes, the historical integrity of Kennebunkport is part of what makes this community so charming, and much gratitude is due to the organization for its work over the decades.  So with ticket prices just $20 for this incredible experience, it’s well worth it!  I hope you enjoy the tour as much as I did  - and I am already asking about next year!

Boats in the Kennebunkport Maine Marina

The boats are sittin' pretty!

to return to the area, so make sure you take advantage of this incredible season and the low, low “Shoulder Season” special this month.
The beaches are looking lovely, with the long stretches of sand begging for bare feet and sandcastles.  And while the sea changes with every moment, the waves beckon swimmers and waders alike.  The docks and marinas that line the downtown waterways are full of beautiful boats (though I don’t know anything about them, they sure are fun to look at!).  Even the kayakers are out and about enjoying Kennebunkport Maine!
One of the best things about June vacations are the plethora of things to do – festivals and fairs, performances and exhibits, and awesome activities!  But if you’re not looking for structure, there’s nothing better than relaxing on the beach or in our backyard. Don’t miss out on the final days of our outta-this-world special, and head to Kennebunkport Maine to jump start your summer vacation!
