Spring and Summer Seasons

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

A Maine Coast Summer Vacation

Now that the Fourth of July has come and gone, it is officially summer vacation time, and there’s no better place to enjoy a summer vacation on the Maine Coast than in Kennebunkport!  Now you may think that I am a little biased towards this charming town, but the truth is that I’m “from away” and, after exploring many of the coastal vacation areas in New England, I still think that Kennebunkport is pretty darn special.  For more than a few reasons! So today I’ve… 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

A Gorgeous Day In Kennebunkport

At daybreak this morning, Kennebunkport was cloaked in a bit of fog, clouds, and even some light rain – not exactly ideal  for a day at the beach! But much to everyone’s delight, by the time breakfast was over, the weather had completely changed, with intense summer sun and bright cloudless skies. It certainly makes one wonder how is it exactly that the weathermen can get the forecast wrong so often… But when it was as beautiful as today, you certainly couldn’t worry about for… Read More

A Great Memorial Day Weekend in Kennebunkport Maine!

It’s hard to believe that Memorial Day Weekend has come and gone, and that means that summer has arrived in Kennebunkport Maine! And while the weather forecast looked more than a bit iffy, Mother Nature, brought us some truly gorgeous weather this weekend. Even though temps were warm, no one decided to eat on the porch – lots opted for romantic breakfasts in their very own cottage suites, and another good bunch chose to be social with other guests. They lounged, drank coffee,… Read More

An Afternoon at the Beach in Kennebunkport Maine

Although the day’s forecast looked a little questionable this morning, today turned out to be an absolutely incredible one in Kennebunkport Maine, so we headed to beach.  Beaches, actually! With truly stellar weather this Memorial Day Weekend, it just seemed appropriate to visit as many as possible. The ocean could be something that you might take for granted when living in vacationland, but any time you check out a new cove or secret spot it feels entirely new! So this afternoon, we headed… Read More

Kennebunkport Maine Welcomes Summer!

With Memorial Day Weekend finally here, and some great weather gracing Kennebunkport Maine, we’ve been working on the gardens and outdoor spaces, but come Monday, the area beaches are sure to be calling! With temps supposed to reach almost 80, I for one am going to be especially psyched that some of New England’s most beautiful beaches are just a stone’s throw from our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast!  But while we provide the beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, and even sand toys, you will still have… Read More
