Visiting the Best Beaches in Kennebunkport

Every day at least one guest at our Maine bed and breakfast asks which is the best beach in Kennebunkport, and that is never a question I can answer!  The problem is simple – they are all lovely!  But fortunately, each is “best” for something.  So here’s my attempt at explaining them and why they are so excellent: Colony Beach: Less than a half mile from the inn, this beach is definitely walkable, which is a huge perk for folks who want… Read More

A Day at the Beach in Kennebunkport Maine

Yesterday was another spectacular summer day in Kennebunkport Maine, so I headed to the beach – something that you can take for granted when living in vacationland.  But I soaked up every moment!  With the selection of incredible beaches in the area, it can be difficult to select which beach to spend the day at – or perhaps you’ll split the attention between a few.  Gooch’s, Mother’s, and Middle Beaches allow you to easily walk between three very different feeling stretches of… Read More
