Maine Summer Vacation

Last Week of June Rates in Kennebunkport Maine!

It’s hard to believe that we are entering the last week of June, but that means that special rates in Kennebunkport Maine are soon to disappear!  Although this evening was a little on the chilly side, the warm summer weather is soon to return to the area, so make sure you take advantage of this incredible season and the low, low “Shoulder Season” special this month.

The First Day of Summer in Kennebunkport Maine

The summer solstice in Kennebunkport Maine was met with spectacular weather, which just begged for a visit to the beach.  Parson’s Beach is a personal favorite, particularly in the evening.  Yes, the beach is especially lovely, but its shortage of parking means that desertion is practically guaranteed.  The beach roses (Rosa rugosa) are in full bloom and emanate a deliciously soft odor that I have associated with summer for as long as I can remember.  A short, sandy path through the flowering… Read More

The doors opened on Saturday, May 21, 2011 for the first time this season, and they debuted a variety of new menu options, all of which I am sure are fabulous.… Read More

A Maine Bed and Breakfast Summer Vacation

It’s not too often that someone’s perfect summertime vacation  is the same when they’re three as when they’re 23, but for me, that’s the case – hands down, I would pick a Maine Bed and Breakfast!  For as long as I can remember, my parents have taken me to BnBs, but from the time I tasted my first lobster, I have had an affinity for Maine. When I visited Kennebunkport Maine at age 15, I knew I had found my perfect vacation… Read More

Summertime Bring Sweet Treats to Kennebunkport Maine

In Kennebunkport Maine, the return of ice cream means the return of summer – and by that I mean that my favorite spots for a cup or cone have now opened, all just minutes from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a good, healthy meal, but sometimes a girl’s gotta have ice cream!  Honestly, though, what’s better on a hot summer night than a double scoop dribbling down the sides of a waffle cone as you… Read More
