Christmas Prelude 2013 is Underway in Kennebunkport Maine!

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

Kennebunkport Maine is often known for its assortment of fine shops, and that means that it’s a prime location to get some holiday shopping done!  All of us at the Maine Stay Inn are feel so lucky to have such a great spot for retail therapy just steps away.  And unlike many vacation destinations, Dock Square is not overrun with T-shirt shops and souvenir stands.  Instead, you’ll find incredible art galleries, chic boutiques, and fine crafts with products from many local craftsmen.… 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

Christmas Prelude 2013 is Coming to Kennebunkport!

It’s hard to believe, but Christmas Prelude 2013 is well on its way to Kennebunkport!  In fact, it’s less than 30 days away now!  And even though Christmas decorations showed up in the stores promptly on November 1, I can’t quite wrap my head around it being “the Holidays” while there are still leaves on some of the trees.  But the weather is getting much cooler, and the air is getting that crisp, late fall feeling, which means… winter’s not far behind!  So… Read More

Plus, with great back to school sales at the shops in Dock Square, you’ll surely get in some retail therapy that is great on the wallet!  And since the stores in the area are known for their unique and hard… Read More

Fireworks on the Fourth in Kennebunkport Maine

It’s hard to believe that July Fourth is upon us, but that means that we will get to enjoy fireworks commemorating Independence Day in Kennebunkport Maine!  There aren’t too many small towns in New England (or anywhere in the country, for that matter) that are lucky enough to enjoy fireworks displays as large or involved as ours, and boy, are we ever lucky!  And considering our seaside location and undulating coastline, there are lots of great spots to enjoy the show.  While… Read More
