So How Can A Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Lose a Toilet?

If someone told you that our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast lost a toilet, you wouldn’t believe them, right? Well, that was my reaction.  Actually, to be completely honest, I figured that we somehow must have broken it.  Given our track record, that’s a distinct possibility.  You have heard about the head of lettuce we found in the toilet, right?  Or about the time that Walter decided to fix one by taking it out of the floor and working on it in the… Read More

Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast’s New Look!

We were pleased to welcome back photographer Christian Giannelli to our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfastto check out our newest renovations.  It’s been like torture to wait and show all of our friends and visitors the changes we worked so hard on this spring and summer.  But the wait has finally ended!  So while we haven’t quite gotten the chance to update the pictures on our website, we’re proud to show you the fruits of our labor. So here’s the story:  This spring,… Read More

Summertime Improvements at a Maine Bed and Breakfast

At your average Maine Bed and Breakfast, summertime doesn’t bring much in terms of changes – trimming bushes, touching up paint, or fixing those problems that just crop up now and then – but the Maine Stay Inn is no average B&B!  We’re working on projects daily and, of course, keeping on top of those daily issues (think a rattling air conditioner or a loose toilet seat).  This summer we’ve debuted some great new lawn and porch furniture, with more to arrive shortly… Read More

Finding the Maine Stay Inn and Cottages

It turns out that finding the Maine Stay Inn is a pretty easy task, but things like smart phones, navigation systems, MapQuest, and GPS have made it even easier!  Visiting us from the south is very straightforward, with I-95 cutting a path not far from Kennebunkport.  The best route into town is actually to take exit 19 and hop off in Wells.  No, I’m not crazy!  It actually is easier and faster to not get off on the exit labelled Kennebunk/Kennebunkport (that would just… Read More

The Front Porch of Kennebunkport is Now Open!

Considered by many to be the “front porch” of Kennebunkport, the Maine Stay Inn‘s grand wraparound has been a feature of town for well over 150 years.  And for at least the past several decades, visitors have enjoyed breakfast outside during the warmer months.  Each year around this time, we hang the spherical planters of coral impatiens.  They start the size of basketballs and with tender, loving care from innkeepers and staff (okay, mostly Walter), they nearly fill the entire space between… Read More

Kennebunkport Luxury Hotels Don’t Have to be Stuffy

For many people, Kennebunkport luxury hotels conjure up the image of a stuffy and pretentious environment, but that is definitely not the case at the Maine Stay Inn.  A “look but don’t touch” kind of place is really no fun and certainly doesn’t promote relaxation or enjoyment, which is what we’re all looking for when on vacation or even a quick weekend getaway.  I mean, I certainly remember going into high end shops, galleries, and the like as a child and was warned… Read More

Kennebunkport Hotels Prepare for Summer Season

Kennebunkport hotels like the Maine Stay Innare preparing for the summertime, and all around town you’ll see signs of people hard at work.  Even the town of Kennebunkport is making preparations.  While it was a bit of a hassle for a few days, they’ve repaved all of the streets from the Maine Stay to the Dock Square bridge!  Great gardens are springing up all over the community, gracing private homes, bed and breakfasts, restaurants, and even schools.  But the most prolific of… Read More

Maine Bed and Breakfast Gets a Facelift

It’s not too often that you walk into a Maine Bed and Breakfast and see a “please excuse our appearance – we’re under construction (to improve your experience, of course!)” sign in the entryway, but at the Maine Stay, there have been a few times in the past few years.  Frankly, with all of the massive changes and improvements, that experience could certainly have happened much more often.  Fortunately, most of our changes have gone according to plan, and unlike typical home renovations,… Read More

Maine Bed and Breakfast’s Good Samaritan

A few weeks ago one of the newest members of our Maine Bed and Breakfast staff arrived late to cook breakfast. Oh boy, we all thought. What’s going on with her?  Is she going to show up?  Breakfast is, after all, kind of a big deal at the Maine Stay.  A multi-course gourmet breakfast doesn’t just cook itself, let alone serve itself to hungry visitors.  But before we could get too worried, Ashley hurried in, explaining that she had just witnessed a… Read More
