Enjoying Indoor Activities in Kennebunkport

As I watched a beautiful sunset in Kennebunkport this evening, I was reminded by a friend that not everyone likes the great outdoors.  So that got me thinking about how many incredible opportunities there are for indoor fun in the area! Granted, the first thing that I think about is food… pretty much always, so I would be remiss not to mention the fact that there are phenomenal restaurants in Kennebunkport that have comfortable indoor dining rooms.  Yes, you don’t have to… Read More

“Spring Ahead” Comes to Kennebunkport

While the first part of March has been unseasonably cool in Kennebunkport, the start of daylight savings and the “spring ahead” of the clocks coincided with a lovely Spring weekend!  So not only were we already enjoying the lengthening days, but we racked up an extra hour of daylight that we all enjoyed by spending a little extra time outside.  But boy, was it a tease, because it just made all of us at the Maine Stay Inn want more warmth, more… Read More

Enjoying Water Sports in Kennebunkport Maine

Many people think of our beautiful beaches when they think of Kennebunkport Maine, but lots of people are choosing to enjoy the crystal clear water in other ways, especially by getting involved in water sports. And since the Maine Stay Inn is located just one block from the harbor, we’re situated in an ideal spot to partake in all of the available fun!  A personal favorite activity of mine, kayaking is a really popular past time in Kennebunkport Maine.  Experienced water warriors… Read More

Hiking “The Secret Garden” in Kennebunkport Maine

As you may know, getting outdoors (no matter the season!) is one of my absolute favorite past times, so when I learned about “The Secret Garden” just over the border from Kennebunkport Maine, I just had to find it.  But after a little bit of research about this hidden gem, I worried that it could potentially be a bit mucky.  And with springtime often associated with “mud season” from the melting snow and showers that bring May flowers the concern was real,… Read More

A Walk in the Woods, Kennebunkport Style!

While much of the state of Maine is heavily wooded and home to some big critters like moose and bears, those of us in Kennebunkport are fortunate to be able to easily enjoy an old-school “walk in the woods” without venturing from the perks of a delightful seaside village studded with awesome restaurants, art galleries, and great shopping.  And frankly, I just love that!  I mean, what could be better than exploring the great outdoors, cleaning up in a luxurious bathroom, and… Read More

Kennebunkport Nominated for Happiest Seaside Town in America

Area natives, local residents (otherwise known as “transplants” like me!) and visitors alike have known for ages that Kennebunkport is a truly incredible place, one that really takes you back in time.  Yes, this quaint little village is the kind of place where kids still play outside, ride bikes along the beach, and people leave their doors open and the keys in their cars.  Strangers smile and wave as though you’re an old friend they encountered along tree lined streets and walking… Read More

Music in Kennebunkport: Live at the Hive

While Kennebunkport hasn’t exactly been known as the music capitol of Maine, the area has certainly seen an upswing in the variety and caliber of performers coming to the area, especially with the opening of The Hive.  Located in downtown Kennebunk, this unassuming storefront houses a “swarm” of activity ranging from after school arts programs for kids as young as kindergarten to emerging musical performances.  But while I knew this new arts center was fully operational and getting rave reviews, I hadn’t… Read More

Movie Theaters Near Kennebunkport, ME

Tonight as I headed out of our Maine Bed and Breakfast, on my way to see The Descendents, I realized how lucky we are to have so many movie theaters near Kennebunkport, ME.  Tonight, though, I decided to head south to the Wells Five Star Cinema.  Located in a shopping plaza with a favorite Maine institution, Reny’s (a small chain known for its unusual assortment of good, including outdoor staples, and unbeatable prices), the theater’s next door neighbor is more than convenient… Read More
