Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast’s Website Gets a Facelift

With all of the work we’ve done around our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast this year, we decided it was time for our website to get a facelift!  It reflects our sleeker and more tailored style and we’re really happy with it, but now we’d like to hear from you – so send us your thoughts and we’ll work on incorporating them into the new design! Over the past few years we’ve been working on reshaping the Maine Stay Inn‘s image, replacing the… Read More

Kennebunkport Cottage Suite 10 Gets a New Look!

At the Maine Stay Inn, keeping things new and interesting on the property is always at the top of our priority list, and we just received pictures of our latest renovations – Kennebunkport Cottage Suite #10’s new look! With two double beds, and a casual feel, we really wanted to channel the quintessential Maine cottage, with airy tones and summery blues, but with a fresh, modern twist.  We said farewell to the darling old wallpaper and traditional artwork and replaced it with… Read More

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Gets a New Look

The winter months are a time period when we devote lots of time and energy to updating our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast and this year has been no exception.  Of course, we do lots of little things, like fixing the chipped paint in each and every guest room (boy, do those vacuums do a number on the baseboards!), fixing wallpaper seams, and replacing rugs that have seen better days. We move furniture and reorganize, just to make things work better for each and every… Read More

New Pictures of Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast are Coming!

Although chilly weather is in this week’s forecast, everyone at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast knows that springtime is in the air, because Christian Giannelli, specialist in Inn Photography, arrived this evening. We always look forward to Christian’s visits, because over the past few years he has become a great friend.  And, after months of hard work, his visits generally mean we’ve finished some big projects.  In fact, we’ve been so busy renovating across the property that we will have to have him back for… Read More

Maine Bed and Breakfast Starts a New Renovation

With October drawing to a close, our Maine bed and breakfast is gearing up for some exciting renovations and one is already underway!  While we’re not going to spill the beans on what is coming during the rest of the winter in terms of new room designs, we’re happy to announce that the Victorian Charm Room (#15) in the main house is no more.  The wallpaper has come down, the walls given a new coat of plaster, and are already boasting a… Read More

What Makes Maine Bed and Breakfasts “Charming”?

In honor of National Country Inn and Bed and Breakfast Day, Hotels.com compiled a list of their favorite B&Bs across the nation, and we were so excited to find the Maine Stay Inn on that list!  Their article “10 Charming American Bed & Breakfasts Around the US” got me thinking about what exactly makes Maine bed and breakfasts so charming and romantic.  Now, let’s be clear – charming is not the same thing as cute.  Or old.  To me, the word “charming”… Read More

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Receives Eco Friendly Award

We received some exciting news earlier this summer, when we found out that our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast was named a Green Leader by TripAdvisor!  Over the past six years, we have been working diligently to turn this historic property into an eco-friendly destination.  At first, the task seemed daunting.  I mean, how could you turn an 1860 Victorian and five guest houses into a lean, mean energy sipping machine?  And since the idea of recycling was not even considered, this seemed… Read More

What to Expect at a Maine Bed and Breakfast

As someone who has stayed at B&Bs since childhood, I am always surprised at how many folks never have, so it seems like a good idea to talk about what you can expect when staying at a Maine bed and breakfast.  Quite a few people have this idea that staying at a bed and breakfast is kind of like staying at your grandmother’s house, and while that was apparently kind of true back in the day (and by that I mean before… Read More

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Receives Review Award

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
