Snowstorm Juno Visits Kennebunkport

Although the snowfall seem to be winding down here in Kennebunkport, the winds are still howling and we have lots of shoveling ahead of us.  But we are looking forward to waking up to some beautiful sunny skies in this winter wonderland!  While a superstorm like this one has major implications for travel throughout the nation (although our local plow drivers are doing an amazing job!), it sure does set the stage for a perfect month of romance in town.  “Paint the… Read More

Superbowl Sunday in Kennebunkport Maine

It’s hard to believe that Superbowl Sunday is just a week away, and after the “Deflategate” scandal, even the non football fans are surely going to be tuning in from Kennebunkport.  While I am definitely not a regular sports watcher, this broadcast tops my “must-see” list for next weekend, and there’s no better place (aside from the stadium, perhaps) to watch than one of the great pubs around Kennebunkport Maine.  Now since the commercials are my favorite part of the Superbowl, and I… Read More

Winter Activities to Enjoy in Kennebunkport Maine

The new year and heart of winter is here, and with it some chilly weather perfect for enjoying winter activities in the Kennebunkport Maine area during your getaway. Now, the first thing that comes to mind in terms of winter sports is usually skiing, and mountains are not something that Southern Maine is really known for.  But the truth is that not everyone loves to strap on the ski boots and hit the slopes, and sometimes what you really are thinking of… Read More

Celebrating New Year’s Eve in Kennebunkport

The Christmas holiday gave all of us at the Maine Stay a chance to enjoy some relaxation time with family, and we’re all recharged and ready to start preparing to ring in the new year in Kennebunkport.  While some people choose to enjoy dinners out, many visitors choose to forgo a restaurant dinner and enjoy the festivities right inside the Maine Stay Inn with our annual New Year’s Eve party.  We started this annual tradition years ago in a low key gathering for staff, local friends, and… Read More

Ringing In the New Year in Kennebunkport!

Every year the holiday season brings lots of fun and merriment to Kennebunkport and the Maine Stay.  A Thanksgiving feast leads into two weeks of Christmas Prelude, followed on its heels with actual Christmas and, of course, our New Year’s Eve party!  Thank goodness I don’t believe that calories exist in the state of Maine (you know… “Maine – the way life should be”), because we sure do a lot of cooking and eating around the Maine Stay Inn at this time of year.… Read More

Christmas Prelude Lights Up Kennebunkport

It’s hard to believe that the closing weekend of Christmas is already upon us, but tonight’s tree lighting and fireworks display started the festivities off with a bang – literally! Now in its 33rd year, Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude has grown to span a whole 12 days. 12 days of Christmas festivities?  Yes, please! Today’s activities included the lighting of the Dock Square Christmas tree, accompanied with musical performances, art and shopping opportunities, and winter trolley rides.  And after the lighting, crowds of… Read More

Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude is Almost Here!

It’s hard to believe that Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude is just days away now, but with the Thanksgiving turkeys put away and the leftovers nearly polished off, Prelude really is just around the corner!  After a sizable snow shower on Wednesday and Thursday, and a Black Friday dusting, the Dock Square Christmas tree is looking especially festive, and is just begging for Friday’s tree lighting. Bouys decorate the Dock Square tree for Christmas Prelude Now in its 32nd year, Christmas Prelude has earned Kennebunkport… Read More

Thanksgiving Eve in Kennebunkport

It’s hard to believe that today marks the 12th anniversary of our family’s first visit to Kennebunkport.  As the snow falls gently around the Maine Stay Inn, the quiet that comes with a snowstorm allows for some reflection on my first visit to this town that I loved at first arrival.  While that day 12 years ago wasn’t quite as blustery as today, snow fell during our Thanksgiving visit to Kennebunkport.  I guess a “White Thanksgiving” is kind of a thing here!… Read More

Winter Activities For Your Bed and Breakfast Getaway

With the Superbowl and Winter Olympics on the immediate horizon, I started thinking about my favorite winter activities and trends for those enjoying a bed and breakfast getaway.  Now, the first thing that comes to mind in terms of winter sports is usually skiing, and mountains are not something that Southern Maine is really known for.  But truthfully, not everyone is a ski bunny, so I don’t personally  see a lack of slopes as a big drawback when it comes to planning… Read More

Winter Weekend Activities in Kennebunkport Maine

A long weekend lies just ahead and that got me thinking about all of the great winter activities there are to enjoy in Kennebunkport Maine and the surrounding area.  While some people aren’t huge fans of lots of snow, it sure makes things awfully pretty and we might even see a very light dusting on Saturday – what a treat! It’s just the kind that transforms our already lovely winter landscape into a perfect winter wonderland, without causing any trouble on the roads or even much shoveling!… Read More
