While the Maine Stay Inn is lucky to have an 1860 Italianate Victorian main house, one of the most unique features of the inn is just outside – the luxury Kennebunkport cottages that feature a wide range of styles and decor, which means there’s something for everyone’s individual style preferences. Over the past few years we’ve had tons of fun renovating each of the Cottage Suites from top to bottom – some even more than once! And because we don’t have to work around the confines of a central hallway, each room can be really different. Yes,
each of the guest houses might be your average white ranch style building on the outside, behind each red door lies a truly unique experience. Even with 11 of our luxury cottage suites, no two are exactly alike or even that similar! Because some of our guests want the main house feeling with the added privacy and spaciousness that comes with our luxury Kennebunkport cottages, Cottage Suite 7 sports traditional Thibaut wallpaper, a classic sleigh bed, and reproduction furniture. But not to worry, you won’t find any floral or lace here, because even our traditional rooms have been simplified and modernized to reflect the looks of today. Romantic Cottage Suite 5 takes transitional decor even a step further, mixing sleek sofas and bold paint colors with custom made furnishings from antique millwork.
We really love color, and that trend continues in Romantic Cottage Suites 1 and 4. And this spring, Suite 3 got a new look that’s been getting rave reviews – a bold, contemporary wallpaper with geometric designs contrast the rich mahogany furniture in a way that just works. This transformation took our luxury Kennebunkport cottages to a new level in terms of our expectations for our design projects – I guess I had better get working on the next plans (I wonder which one will be up next…)! Once cute and country, Cottage Suites 8, 9, and 11 have all taken on a modern look, but even these are all different – some are soft and soothing, while others are bold and fun. But since these are cottages, after all, we’ve renovated Suite 10 to be exactly what you’d expect from an upscale New England cottage! But no matter what style makes you most comfortable, our luxury Kennebunkport cottages are sure to have just what you need – just ask for some guidance and any of the Maine Stay staff would be happy to help you pick the right one!
