A Fall Weekend in Kennebunkport Maine

On a chilly evening like this one, there’s nothing better than snuggling up in front of a warm (and non-smoky) gas fireplace – and fortunately for me (and you!) there’s one with my name on it right in the living room of our Kennebunkport Maine Bed and Breakfast.  Not to mention the fact that nine of our guest rooms and suites have their very own, which is ideal for cuddling with your special someone!  But given the chilly weather and light drizzle… Read More

On my way to our Maine Bed and Breakfast each day, I pass the Wedding Cake House, which could very possibly be the most photographed private home in Maine.  It’s beyond incredible.  Now, since my architectural knowledge is really pretty advanced, I just know that those twizzles and twirlies and intricately carved doo-hickeys are pretty snazzy!  Okay, I basically know that a house has a roof and walls, but this one is amazing.  It’s hard to believe that this home (and it… Read More
