The Reawakening of Kennebunkport Restaurants

Early April is a very exciting time in Kennebunkport, with the weather warming, the days lengthening, and restaurants reopening.  And while a good many are open all year long, a few are indeed seasonal – some because their proprietors need a good long rest after a busy season, and others because they are situated in “charming” buildings that just can’t handle a rough Maine winter (not that we had one this year!).  Yes, believe it or not, quite a few of these… Read More

Celebrating Leap Day in a Maine Bed and Breakfast

I just got so excited to realize that just a few days from now marks my very first Leap Day at our Maine Bed and Breakfast!  Now that might not seem like a big deal to most people, but I think of it as a pretty exciting milestone, especially because not long after will we celebrate our fourth anniversary.  Can you believe it!?!  Anyhow, from a very early age (think back to learning your times tables) I have been obsessed with Leap… Read More

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

Superbowl Parties in Kennebunkport ME

Although there were more than a few forlorn faces gathered in our Kennebunkport ME dining room yesterday morning, the conversation eventually turned to where they all decided to watch the big game.  While many visitors and guests alike congregated at Federal Jack’s BrewPub, there were lots of other excellent choices to keep in mind for next year’s Superbowl.  Now Fed’s might take the cake for the number of televisions and largest bar, but Alisson’s Restaurant is the closest spot to our Kennebunkport Bed… Read More

Kennebunkport Maine Welcomes Tia’s Topside

As you already know, Kennebunkport Maine is a fantastic destination, especially for people who enjoy dining, but Tia’s Topside is certainly a welcome addition to the culinary scene.  Each morning on my way to our Kennebunkport Bed and BreakfastI pass through Lower Village Kennebunk, which has featured a rather delapitdated building on a hill overlooking the water.  Long empty, we have been waiting for someone to restore the facade to its original splendor, and the wait is finally over! Work began late… Read More

A Kennebunkport Maine Clam Chowder Tasting

There are two things that nearly everyone tastes while visiting Kennebunkport Maine – lobster and clam chowder (my apologies to the folks with shellfish allergies).  And while most people agree on what makes a good lobster, there is much dissension when it comes to chowdah.  Some like it thick, others prefer thin.  Some want lots of potatoes, while others would rather pass.  There are the bacon fans and those who think it belongs on a burger.  Even within my own family, we… Read More

Enjoying a Waterfront Lunch in Kennebunkport Maine

Sometimes it is hard to believe that in the seaside village of Kennebunkport Maine, there are only a handful of waterfront restaurants.  But for many, sitting on the water and enjoying a good meal is an absolute must – a deal breaker even! As usual, we’ve got you covered, no matter what style restaurant strikes your fancy. Looking for casual?  Federal Jack’s sits just a short walk from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast and in close proximity to the beach (a perfect midway… Read More

Celebrate National Goat Cheese Month in Kennebunkport

Did you know that August is National Goat Cheese Month?  I sure didn’t!  But as usual, I can’t think of a better place to celebrate than in Kennebunkport Maine.  Some of our favorite restaurants offer fantastic dishes featuring goat cheese, as do some popular entrees at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast.  One of my favorite things about summertime is the plethora of fresh, juicy berries, something that we feature regularly on the morning menu.  And conveniently, strawberries go great with goat cheese!  So… Read More

Date Night: Kennebunkport Dining With (out) Kids

As a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast that welcomes families, we understand that dining with kids is usually very different than eating out as a couple.  In the morning adventurous kiddos can enjoy our gourmet breakfast daily, or they can opt for cereal (yes, we even have Lucky Charms!).  And lunches at the beach are flexible enough to satisfy even the fussiest of eaters.  Dinner, however, is another matter.  Fortunately, Kennebunkport Maine offers a plethora of family-friendly restaurants. So if you’re looking to… Read More
