Giving the Gift of A Getaway

December 21st, 2012 by Judi Hauer

For families around the globe, December can be a big gift-giving month – and not just for Christmas!  Both of my parents celebrate birthdays this month, as well as an anniversary at the end of November, and that’s not so unusual, it seems, because we have three couples visiting the Maine Stay Inn tonightthat are also celebrating birthdays during their stay.  I suppose if you think about it, there are probably just as many people born during December as during any other month (except February with its measly 28 – or

Christmas in Kennebunkport Maine

Kennebunkport is looking festive for Christmas – and great for a getaway!

29 – days), so chances are good that someone you know has a birthday right around Christmas (or Hanukkah).  I think these visitors had a great idea – giving the gift of a getaway – because I for one know that it can really be tough to come up with a thoughtful and creative present for not one, but two special days.  In fact, it was such a good idea that it inspired my mom and I to take a special mother-daughter getaway in honor of her birthday.

But remember, for the next few days you can take advantage of our annual Gift Certificate sale and cash in on some steep savings for your getaway to a Maine Bed and Breakfast.  Plus, since you’re giving a gift certificate, that special someone in your life can use if for a winter weekend, a fun summer vacation, or just a night away from the kids.  And best of all, there’s no wrapping involved, because our gift certificates come printed and customized just for you!

Surprise Birthday Getaway to a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

May 19th, 2011 by avadmin

Yesterday was my 24th birthday, which got me thinking about what an awesome surprise an escape to a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast would be!  So I spent an inordinate amount of time today day-dreaming about what my perfect birthday vacation in Kennebunkport Maine would entail.  Here goes!

The room:  Now, I have an obsession with historical architecture, so I would want to stay in the main house (in case you’re curious, my favorite color is green – you can figure it out).  I also really like to talk with people, so I wouldn’t miss out on dining at the breakfast table with other guests.  However, if that wasn’t my thing, I would absolutely pick a

Perfect for a Picnic!

Cottage Suite with a double jacuzzi tub.  What girl doesn’t love a good soak?

The food:  Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is just steps from downtown, with passels of great restaurants.  I would definitely make reservations at my favorite spots for dinner, but would play lunchtime by ear.  Since I absolutely adore picnics, that would definitely be a must.  A variety of casual dining restaurants offer take out options, but there are also two excellent catering companies that have picnic-perfect goodies.  As far as dinner goes, I would definitely want to walk so that I could enjoy a celebratory cocktail.  Plus sunsets on the bridge are not to be missed.  So my picks would probably be for an “in-between” restaurant (one with amazing food, but where I could go in nice jeans or a cute dress depending on my mood… or the weather).

The plan:  The whole premise of our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is to provide people with the kind of experience they want.  I would want to play outside!  That means long walks on the beach (I am not kidding) and through the historic district.  I would want to visit Laudholm Farm and stroll the Marginal Way.  And I have always wanted to explore Mount Agamenticus, where you can apparently see the ocean from the top of the hill!  But what I would really want is to be surprised, whether that means gourmet dessert delivered to my door, spectacular floral arrangements, or a getaway that kept me completely in the dark.

So that’s my idea of a perfect birthday getaway, but at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, we’re here to help make your birthday escape exactly what you need.
