Maine Restaurant Week is Here!

Maine Restaurant Week is an incredible opportunity to explore the Maine culinary scene, and it is finally back again! Now, we all know that restaurant week is a wonderful way to test out new spots or enjoy different options at some old favorites, but I am a firm believer that it is also an excuse to order more than you normally would and enjoy leftovers for lunch! There are several participating restaurants in the Kennebunkport area. But since this restaurant week encompasses the entire state, no matter whether… Read More

Daylight Saving Time “Springs Ahead” in Kennebunkport

This winter has brought record breaking amounts of snow to New England, but Spring certainly is on its way to Kennebunkport.

The extra hour of daylight we gained today is already appreciated – it’s still light out!  And the extra sunshine is perfect for exploring outside, and really makes me think about some of my favorite… Read More

A Summer Evening on the Maine Coast

Today was an absolutely gorgeous day, and it gave way to an equally beautiful evening, which just begged for a stroll along the Maine Coastline in Kennebunkport and through Dock Square.  A night like tonight just begs for dinner on the water, and fortunately for visitors to Kennebunkport (and those of us who live here too!) there are lots of wonderful outdoor dining establishments in the area.  Just steps from the Maine Stay Inn, you’ll find the Arundel Wharf Restaurant, a classic… Read More

10 Best Things About Summer on the Maine Coast

Even though tonight was little bit cloudy, it was pretty much a perfect summer evening in Kennebunkport Maine.  The weather is warm, and the slight breeze kicks up the smell of salt air, making a light cardigan the perfect thing to pair with shorts.  There’s not humidity, which means perfect sleeping weather, and the sun doesn’t set until quite late.  And after spending the day working in the garden, I really got thinking about some of my favorite things about summer along… Read More

July 4th Fireworks in Kennebunkport Maine

July 4th is upon us, and apparently so is a little storm – but that’s not going to put a damper on the fun and festivities in Kennebunkport Maine.  So despite the fact that tomorrow’s fireworks have been postponed, it looks like the bulk of the storm will actually happen overnight tonight, leaving us with some great weekend weather!  Not to worry, though, the famous fireworks off of Kennebunk Beach will only be delayed 24 hours and go off (without a hitch,… Read More

Best Beaches on the Maine Coast

Every day at least one guest at our Maine coast bed and breakfast asks which are the best beaches in the area, and that is never a question I can answer!  The problem is simple – there are lots, and they are all lovely!  But fortunately, each is “best” for something.  So here’s my attempt at explaining them and why they are so excellent: Colony Beach: Less than a half mile from the inn, this beach is definitely walkable.  It’s ideal for that car-less… Read More
