Holidays in Kennebunkport Maine

Thanksgiving Dining in Kennebunkport Maine

One of the most important parts of any Thanksgiving celebration is dinner and fortunately when spending the holiday in Kennebunkport Maine there are lots of excellent places to give thanks over a great meal. And while Thanksgiving dinner is a particularly special time, one of my favorite things about the holiday is getting to watch Kennebunkport prepare itself for Christmas Prelude and the holiday season. As you may know, Thanksgiving marks my very first introduction to this amazing community on the Maine Coast. Never having visited before, my parents chose this… Read More

Honoring Vets on Veterans Day in Kennebunkport Maine

While many people will enjoy a day off tomorrow and welcome the break in their work week, it can be very easy to forget the reason we are given an extra day to relax and explore beautiful places like Kennebunkport Maine. Unlike Memorial Day, which honors fallen veterans, most communities don’t celebrate with a parade or armed salute in a local cemetery, Veterans Day is a day to honor all of those who have served in the armed forces. And there is… Read More

2015 Christmas Prelude is Coming to Kennebunkport

Even though fall feels like it has just begun, Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude is not far away and it is time to start making plans to enjoy this incredible Christmas Festival. Now, I don’t normally agree with planning for Christmas before Halloween, but when it comes to Prelude, all rules are off! Prelude is just an event that is not to be missed. And since Christmas Prelude begins just one week after Thanksgiving, all of us have to get planning so that the holiday season… Read More

Celebrating Thanksgiving on the Maine Coast

I may be a touch biased, but celebrating Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport Maine is one of my favorite times of year, and our turkey day visitors agree! And one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving on the Maine coast is watching the area transform into a winter wonderland just in time for the holiday season and our famous festival, Christmas Prelude. Suggle by the fire this Thanksgiving! As the fall foliage fades and the mercury drops along with the leaves, all of us at the Maine Stay… Read More

Christmas Prelude 2015 is Coming to Kennebunkport

Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude was voted one of the Best Christmas Festivals in the World a few years ago, and has remained on countless lists of incredible holiday festivals. And after a planning meeting this evening, I was reminded that even though autumn has just begun, the holiday season is sure to sneak up on all of us. Just a few years ago, over nine thousand people gathered in Dock Square, just steps from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, to watch the ceremonial lighting of the Christmas… Read More

Celebrating the Fourth of July at Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast!

The Fourth of July is a big deal all across the nation, and our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is no exception! Almost all of the staff cam decked out in their patriotic finest with red, white, and blue from head to toe. Breakfast got off to a fun and colorful start with our raspberry mint starter, topped just for Independence Day with blueberries and whipped cream! While the skies started a little on the grey side, the clouds cleared and brought bright… Read More

Best Spots in Kennebunkport for Fireworks on the Fourth of July!

July Fourth is upon us, and that means that we will get to enjoy fireworks commemorating Independence Day in Kennebunkport Maine!

Happy Father’s Day From Kennebunkport Maine!

Father’s Day weekend brought lots of warm temperatures to Kennebunkport Maine, and just like every year, we were excited to host some incredible dads this weekend.  The weekend started off with truly incredible weather, so many spent the last official days of spring enjoying the outdoors! Hopefully they packed their sunscreen, because even while strolling through Dock Square the sunshine was pretty strong! But whether folks opted for strolls on the beach, paddling on the Kennebunk River, or pedaling bikes along the… Read More

Celebrate Father’s Day in Kennebunkport

It seems like Mother’s Day has barely passed, but Father’s Day is already right around the corner, and there is no better spot to celebrate Dad than treating him to a getaway in Kennebunkport! Now in my family, Father’s Day is very different than Mother’s Day – there’s no breakfast in bed or special brunch. It’s all about honoring dad with an opportunity to enjoy his favorite things. And what could Dad enjoy more than good food, good beer, and good golfing? Fortunately,… Read More

Cinco De Mayo in Kennebunkport!

May 5 is a fun and exciting day no matter where you are in the world, but there’s no place I would rather celebrate Cinco de Mayo than in Kennebunkport! Not too many people went all out to celebrate, but it is a festive day no matter what. We usually start off the day right with celebratory breakfast like huevos rancheros or a breakfast burrito, but we got our menu planning confused this year! But not to worry, our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast will get it right… Read More
