Hippity-hoppity-hippity-hoppity Easter’s on its way… to Kennebunkport!

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in Kennebunkport Maine

  While Valentine’s Day seems like just yesterday, St. Patrick’s Day is rapidly approaching, and fortunately there are great places to enjoy the luck of the Irish in Kennebunkport Maine.  Just around the corner from the Maine Stay Inn is a local favorite (and not just at this time of year!) – Ryan’s Corner House.  This authentic Irish pub opened just two years ago, just in time for St. Paddy’s Day.  In addition to some amazing brews, they offer fantastic Irish fare, as… Read More

A Snow-Covered Maine Bed and Breakfast

A gentle snow fell throughout the afternoon and evening in Kennebunkport today, and on one of my many trips inside the house after shoveling, I caught a glimpse of the living room fire at our Maine bed and breakfast glowing.  So I began to hum,” Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful” song  – and I know you are glad that I chose to hum and not sing!  Although the storm outside wasn’t exactly frightful, it certainly was… Read More

Wishing You a Merry Christmas from Kennebunkport Maine

It seems like just yesterday that we were clearing the table of Thanksgiving turkey, but looking around, it is clear that Christmas Eve really has arrived, with last minute-shoppers popping into shops all around Kennebunkport Maine.  And the town is decked out in all of its holiday splendor – Christmas trees and garlands, lights, wreaths, and of course, our signature lighted lobster tree topper!

Giving the Gift of A Getaway

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 have three couples visiting the Maine Stay Inn tonightthat are also celebrating birthdays during their stay.  I suppose if you think about it, there are probably just as many people born during December as during any other… Read More

Ringing in 2013 at a Maine Bed and Breakfast
