Kennebunkport Maine Bed and Breakfast renovations

Suite Gets New Luxury Look in Kennebunkport

More than a few rooms and suites at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast were renovated this year, and Cottage Suite #9 is no exception with its new luxury look and feel. Gone is the fun and funky orange accent color and surprisingly understated zebra rug. In its place, you’ll find a plush, hand-knotted wool rug, crown moldings, and a soft and welcoming new look. This king suite still has a contemporary vibe, with a buttery leather chair and industrial inspired lamp in the… Read More

Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Completes Another Renovation

It’s always exciting to unveil a new renovation at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, and there is no better time than today! The Deluxe Fireplace Suite #12 has seen lots of changes over the past few years, but the overhaul of its spacious living room was a massive shift in the ambiance of this suite. As it sits on the first floor, overlooking the side gardens, it has been important to all of us at the Maine Stay to maintain its traditional… Read More

Captain Walker’s Suite Gets A New Look

The wintertime may be a peaceful, relaxing season in Kennebunkport, but for all of us at our Maine Stay Inn, it is full of hustle and bustle while we undertake lots of projects around the inn. And while many of those projects keep things in ship shape, the the most fun ones are the complete room transformations! We certainly tackled some big ones this year, and Captain Walker’s Suite is no exception! Its location on the second floor, overlooking both the front and back gardens, probably has… Read More

New Looks for Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

Now this might sound crazy, but one of my personal favorite things about wintertime at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is the chance to work on renovation and redesign projects. That may seem crazy, but planning a new look is a ton of fun. Although watching guests’ expressions when they walk into a room they love is definitely better! Each one of our rooms and suites has a distinct personality – you certainly won’t find that at a hotel! But what’s even more fun is… Read More

Kennebunkport Cottage Suite 10 Gets a New Look!

At the Maine Stay Inn, keeping things new and interesting on the property is always at the top of our priority list, and we just received pictures of our latest renovations – Kennebunkport Cottage Suite #10’s new look! With two double beds, and a casual feel, we really wanted to channel the quintessential Maine cottage, with airy tones and summery blues, but with a fresh, modern twist.  We said farewell to the darling old wallpaper and traditional artwork and replaced it with… Read More

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Gets a New Look

The winter months are a time period when we devote lots of time and energy to updating our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast and this year has been no exception.  Of course, we do lots of little things, like fixing the chipped paint in each and every guest room (boy, do those vacuums do a number on the baseboards!), fixing wallpaper seams, and replacing rugs that have seen better days. We move furniture and reorganize, just to make things work better for each and every… Read More

New Pictures of Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast are Coming!

Although chilly weather is in this week’s forecast, everyone at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast knows that springtime is in the air, because Christian Giannelli, specialist in Inn Photography, arrived this evening. We always look forward to Christian’s visits, because over the past few years he has become a great friend.  And, after months of hard work, his visits generally mean we’ve finished some big projects.  In fact, we’ve been so busy renovating across the property that we will have to have him back for… Read More

Maine Bed and Breakfast Starts a New Renovation

With October drawing to a close, our Maine bed and breakfast is gearing up for some exciting renovations and one is already underway!  While we’re not going to spill the beans on what is coming during the rest of the winter in terms of new room designs, we’re happy to announce that the Victorian Charm Room (#15) in the main house is no more.  The wallpaper has come down, the walls given a new coat of plaster, and are already boasting a… Read More

A Maine Bed and Breakfast: Before and After

As many of you know, the winter time is full of hustle and bustle at our Maine Bed and Breakfast, because in addition to visiting with incredible guests, we also are working to check off an infinite number of projects.  And of course, there are the not so fun tasks, like helping Walter clean out his office, which morphs from office to storage room/workshop/closet for outdoor winter clothes in record time.  But the most fun are the transformations of rooms and suites… Read More

A Modern Cottage Transformation

Every winter, the Maine Stay Inn undergoes a series of renovations, transforming spaces across the property, and none have been as dramatic as that of Cottage Suite 11, from a classic New England cottage feel to a sleek, modern suite.  And while modern design can sometimes feel stark and cold, we’re extremely proud of the warmth and comfort emanating from the room.  Plus, the new wall-mounted electric fireplace sets the mood in every season, with the option to enjoy the ambience without… Read More
