Spring and Summer Seasons

Spring Activities in Kennebunkport, Maine

Today was an incredible spring day in Kennebunkport, Maine, and that meant ample opportunity to enjoy some great seasonal activities on the Maine coast. Spring is one of those seasons in New England where you can enjoy weather characteristic of all of the other seasons. Fortunately, though, today was a gorgeous day that felt like the epitome of spring (or maybe even early summer!).  No, it wasn’t quite sundress and flip flop weather, but it was definitely warm enough to shed your jackets… Read More

Spring Getaway on the Maine Coast

For many schools in New England, this coming week marks April Vacation Week, which means that spring has really arrived at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast. Now that the vast majority of restaurant that close for portions of the winter have reopened, the shops have springtime window displays all set up, and the snow is almost gone, it really feels like spring has arrived on the Maine Coast. Avid birders might start to recognize the creatures that have returned to the area. And fortunately for… Read More

Celebrating Easter Sunday in Kennebunkport

Easter Sunday brought sunny skies and lots of bright colors to Kennebunkport today. And while there’s little foliage to speak of, the floral displays and pastel attire really brightened up the area. Although Kennebunkport is a quaint little town with just over 3,000 people, there is a surprising number of churches open for Easter service (and even more that open once the weather gets warmer). So while I’m sure I missed more than a few, here is a selection of some houses of worship our guests… Read More

Planning Your Summer Vacation to the Maine Coast

Today the temperatures soared over 65 degrees today in Kennebunkport, Maine, which means it’s time to plan your summer vacation! Personally, I’m just not good at the whole “spontaneous” thing.

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. This morning (at 2 am) marked the start of Daylight Saving Time and today’s weather followed with sun and much warmer temperatures, so that means melting…which means spring! 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

It may feel solidly like winter here in Kennebunkport, but spring is definitely on its way to the Maine Coast, and that means spring skiing!

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
