A Presidential Getaway in Kennebunkport, ME

Although February 14th has come and gone, many people are keeping the mood alive and taking advantage of the long weekend for Presidents’ Day to do their Valentine’s celebrating, and what better place than Kennebunkport, ME for a truly presidential retreat?  Many people may be surprised, but on my very first visit to Kennebunkport, I had no idea that this was the summer retreat of our 41st and 43rd Presidents!  So for those of you who didn’t realize that the Bush Family… 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

Satisfying Your Sweet Tooth in Kennebunkport Maine

If you’re anything like me and your “sweet tooth” has taken over your entire mouth, there are ample opportunities to squelch even the strongest of cravings in Kennebunkport Maine.  While there are occasionally days when the smell of freshly baking cookies in our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast can calm my sugar cravings, it takes multiple servings to reach satiation.  Fortunately for me, there are oodles of amazing spots in Kennebunkport Maine to satisfy any confectionary craving! I scream, you scream, we all… 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

The Kennebunkport Festival is Here!

So you’ve missed Day 1 of the Kennebunkport Festival, but it’s not too late to take part in some or all of the exciting events that make this week so special.  In fact, there’s still room in tomorrow’s “Art of Dining” intimate dinners.  Just steps from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast lies the Samuel Stairs House.  This stunning manse was built in 1810 and boasts one of the tallest spiral staircases in New England (it’s three and a half stories high!).  Incredible… Read More

Just Around the Corner: the Kennebunkport Festival

With Memorial Day Weekend off to a great start, all of us in Kennebunkport Maine are looking forward to next week’s exciting event – the Kennebunkport Festival.  This kick-off to summer has been around for several years under a variety of names, including Arts in the Inns and the Kennebunkport Fine Living Festival, but this year the reins have been turned over to Maine Magazine.  Despite all the changes, the Kennebunkport Festival is celebrating the start of the summer season with a… Read More

Pizza Pies in Kennebunkport Maine

At our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, I regularly get asked where to find the best pizza in Kennebunkport Maine. Since I could never eat enough lobster, I can’t imagine looking for pizza when visiting a seafood mecca (Maine does supply over 75% of the nation’s lobsters).  It doesn’t help, however, that I am gluten-free.  But I seem to be overruled – people just have to know where to find the best pizza pies around. Hands down, the best pizza comes from Grissini,… Read More
