Lobster Lunches in Kennebunkport Maine

This afternoon I found myself chatting with guests about where they should enjoy a lobster lunch in Kennebunkport, and realized that there happen to be quite a few fantastic options.  Much to their chagrin, they had learned that Nunan’s Lobster Hut, our go-to for uber-casual fresh lobster, was only open for dinner.  Yes, it’s true!  But when they’re out catching your dinner, you really can’t fault them, can you?  I mean, I am certainly willing to wait a few extra hours if… Read More

Visiting a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast from Boston

As I drove toward our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfastfrom Boston, it struck me how much changes in 86 miles.  Yes, that major metropolitan area lies less than an hour and a half away, but it’s worlds apart.  The pace here is noticeably slower and the stars brighter.  Now I could go on and on about why Kennebunkport Maine is so different from city life, but that’s a matter for a separate blog.  But, nevertheless, on my short drive I realized just how… Read More

Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Kennebunkport

Finding Gluten Free Pizza in Kennebunkport Maine

Even in a place known for its dining scene like Kennebunkport Maine, there comes a time when visitors and locals alike just need a good pizza.  Now, because of some incredible foresight and strict zoning laws, you’re not going to find a Domino’s or Papa Gino’s anywhere nearby, but even that wouldn’t help us gluten-free folks.  Fortunately, though there are three places in and around Kennebunkport Maine where you can satisfy that craving without compromising your diet (not the waist-watching one – sorry!).… Read More

Maine Restaurant Week Returns to Kennebunkport Maine!

Maine Restaurant Week is a wonderful way to test out new restaurants or enjoy different options at some old favorites, and fortunately for us, several Kennebunkport Maine restaurants have chosen to participate in 2012.  But if you’re interested in exploring, there are loads of options in other nearby communities.   So as I started looking forward to this year’s Maine Restaurant Week (March 1-10, 2012), I began to think about why exactly I enjoy eating in restaurants and narrowed it down to three… Read More

Have Your Cake at Chase Hill Bakery in Kennebunkport Maine

All of us at the Maine Stay love to eat, so when there’s something to celebrate, we reach for cake – and now there is finally a great bakery in Kennebunkport Maine!  Many people, both locals and visitors alike, have been bemoaning the closing of Port Bakery for nearly a year.  Once a staple in Lower Village, it shut its doors and gave rise to Pedro’s Restaurant, an excellent Mexican Cantina (which we desperately needed).  So while we’ve relished a non-traditional Kennebunkport… Read More

Farm to Table Dining in Kennebunkport Maine

Before Farm-To-Table dining became the new “it” thing for restaurants, several Kennebunkport Maine restaurants offered this to their patrons.  Just down the street from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast lies Bandaloop, a small, slightly funky restaurant that focuses on utilizing local ingredients and organic products.  Their menu changes regularly so as to accommodate the freshest seasonal ingredients.  A personal favorite, I could honestly eat at Bandaloop any (and every) night of the week.  Not only is the cuisine good for you and… Read More
