5 Reasons to Choose a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast This Summer

I hate to admit it, but I am a teeny bit biased – I just love BnBs, so staying at a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast for a summer vacation would seem like a natural choice, but it turns out that there are plenty of folks who have only stayed in big hotels.  For them, choosing to visit a B&B would stretch their comfort zone.  But as I enjoyed a leisurely jog through town today, I passed the only big hotels in town,… Read More
