Take A Sail on the Maine Coast

The last week has been picture perfect here on the Maine Coast, and on these incredible evenings, there is almost no better way to watch the sunset than from one of Kennebunkport’s sailboat cruises. In fact, I came to this realization while watching a gorgeous three-masted sailboat cruised into the harbor while I watched from Colony Beach. And while the sunset from the beach is pretty amazing, there is nothing better than watching it with the salt air in your hair and… Read More

And one of my favorite things about the early spring is spring skiing! Fortunately for visitors to Maine Stay Inn, there are many wonderful mountain options located close enough for a day (or even half day) ski trip.

Spring Activities in Kennebunkport, Maine

Today was an incredible spring day in Kennebunkport, Maine, and that meant ample opportunity to enjoy some great seasonal activities on the Maine coast.

Enjoying Indoor Activities in Kennebunkport

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

Hiking “The Secret Garden” in Kennebunkport

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, as… Read More
