Getting Ready for New Year’s Eve in Kennebunkport!

After a bit of relaxation time over the Christmas holiday, we’ve returned with renewed vigor to start preparing to ring in the new year in Kennebunkport.  While some people choose to enjoy dinners out, many guests decide to enjoy the festivities right inside the Maine Stay Inn with our annual New Year’s Eve party.  What started years ago as a way for innkeepers, staff, local friends, and of course any guests in a low key evening, has become so much more and… Read More

A Christmas Snowstorm in Kennebunkport Maine

‘Twas the night after Christmas and all through Kennebunkport, not a creature was stirring… well, no one but the plow drivers!  While there was plenty of the white stuff on the ground on the morning of December 25, it certainly wasn’t the fresh beautiful powder that fell this afternoon.  And, boy, was it beautiful!  Kennebunkport Maine was quiet as people snuggled inside, spending time with their friends and loved ones.  But now that Christmas has come and gone, we at the Maine… Read More

Give a Getaway This Holiday Season

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’ve had lots of couples visiting the Maine Stay Inn recently celebrating birthdays and anniversaries 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… Read More

Kennebunkport Maine is alive with Christmas Prelude festivities, and tonight is no exception! Now that the tree is lit with its signature lobster topper, town looks particularly beautiful.  That said, this time of year is always especially cheerful, with Christmas garlands lining the downtown area and historic district, and historic homes (including our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast) are sparkling with their Christmas lights. Today’s activities featured a multitude of craft fairs, shopping extravaganzas, art shows, and musical events.  But for the eighth straight year,… Read More

Looking Forward to Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport Maine

It’s hard to believe that I first set foot in Kennebunkport Maine 11 years ago today, during a family Thanksgiving getaway.  Much like it is today, the town was aglow with Christmas lights and garlands adorning the Kennebunk River bridge and the lamp posts around town.  But there is one striking difference – it was covered in snow!  And despite today’s wind and steady rain, temps topped the 60 degree mark.  Too bad it wasn’t sunny, right?  That would have called for… Read More

Celebrating Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport Maine

I may be a little bit biased, but celebrating Thanksgiving in Kennebunkport Maine is always a really special time of year, and I certainly think our turkey day visitors agree!  One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is getting to watch Kennebunkport prepare itself for Christmas Prelude.  I am particularly excited this year, because a recent cold snap has made it feel a lot more like the holiday season, and many of the leaves are off the trees, which means it will look a lot… Read More

Maine Bed and Breakfast Honors Veterans

Many people are looking forward to celebrating Veteran’s Day tomorrow, and while it’s easy to forget the reason why we have an extra day off from work or school, our Maine bed and breakfast is taking the opportunity to honor our nation’s veterans.  Unlike Memorial Day, which honors fallen veterans, most communities don’t celebrate with a parade or armed salute in a local cemetery, so we can sometimes forget what this holiday is all about.  We’re expressing our gratitude for those who… Read More
