There’s no other way to describe autumn in Kennebunkport Maine than simply awesome, and a getaway with fun fall activities is the ideal way to make it even better! What could be better than apple picking and corn mazes, or hayrides and pumpkin patches? Since we are very big fans of utilizing local ingredients and seasonal produce, you’ll surely enjoy some classically New England fall fare while visiting the Maine Stay Inn. Ever had pumpkin and sage “home fries”? They’re such a treat, and we’ll even share the
recipe if you’d like. So get pickin’ so you can bring some Maine flavor home with you!
Not far from Kennebunkport Maine, you’ll find Spiller Farm, where you can pick your very own pumpkins – for painting, carving, or (my personal favorite) eating! It’s just over the border in the town of Wells, and is a great spot at any season (berries and veggies in the warmer weather and pumpkins and a few varieties of apples in the fall!). But for mature orchards, check out Giles’ Family Farm, just up the road in Dayton, ME.
Also in Dayton, you’ll find a fantastic corn maze spanning 6 whole acres at Pumpkin Valley Farm! In their 11th year, you’ll be sure to have a great time – and it’s fun for the whole family. But if you are bringing along some pint-sized visitors on your trip to Kennebunkport Maine, you shouldn’t miss out on their giant pumpkin themed bounce-house style jumping pillow. But a little closer to your home-away-from-home, you can enjoy a horse-drawn hayride at Rockin’ Horse Stables right here in Kennebunkport! So take advantage of the beautiful fall weather to enjoy some classic autumn activities, and don’t forget to pop in to the main house for afternoon snacks and a cup of tea or mug of coffee to warm you up from those brisk October breezes.
