Planning Your Summer Vacation to a Maine Bed and Breakfast

Today I noticed buds on the trees and that the birds seemed especially active, which means it’s that time of year again – time to plan your summer vacation to a Maine bed and breakfast!  Most people can’t just spontaneously jaunt off for a couple of days along the coast, so taking that fun trip means planning.  Now, that’s not my favorite thing, especially because time is always at a premium.  But since you’ve already decided to hit coastal Maine for your vay-cay,… Read More

Staying Cool During a Kennebunkport Heat Wave

This week has brought an intense heat wave to New England, and Kennebunkport is no exception.  Temperatures have soared into the early and even mid nineties, which is highly unusual for the Maine Coast, but fortunately every room and suite has air conditioning (and some even have brand new energy efficient heat pump based cooling systems), so everyone has been cool as a cucumber indoors.  That said, on a bright sunny day, hanging out inside is not normally the number one thing… Read More

Summer Vacation at Maine Bed and Breakfasts

Now that July Fourth has come and gone, it is definitely summer vacation time, and there’s no better place than at Maine bed and breakfasts, which offer a combination of the amenities of high end hotels and the comforts of home. Now that doesn’t mean that you’re actually going to be in someone’s home – staying at a bed and breakfast doesn’t mean sleeping in Granny’s spare bedroom.  It is, however, distinctly different from a hotel.  Generally Maine bed and breakfasts are… Read More

Summer’s Heating Up in Kennebunkport Maine

A Great Summer Day in Kennebunkport!

This morning I awoke to a thick fog that was like rain just suspended in mid air, but by the time breakfast was on the table, you could see the sun fighting to emerge from the clouds, and by early afternoon, Kennebunkport was experiencing a truly great summer day!  And what better way to celebrate than to play outdoors?  Well since I couldn’t think of any, I swung through Dock Square to take in the sights and see what others were doing… Read More

Summer Solstice Approaching in Kennebunkport

Now that the summer solstice is just hours away, I thought I would reflect on some of my favorite things to do in Kennebunkport during the summer.  Granted there are about a million things to do in the area and countless places to eat, so this isn’t even close to exhaustive, but these are the things I most look forward to during the summer months.  So here goes! Picnic dinners on the water.  And while I am a food lover, it’s not… Read More
