New England Bed and Breakfasts Revamp Reward Program

May 2nd, 2012 by Judi Hauer

The Maine Stay Inn and Cottages is honored to be part of a select group of New England Bed and Breakfasts called Passport to New England, which helps travelers plan their trips throughout the region to some of the area’s most enjoyed vacation destinations.  All members of the Select Registry, a quality stay is virtually guaranteed, and since each property is operated by owners we know and

Passport to New England Bed and Breakfasts meet to revamp their rewards program for tours of New England

love, we all feel more than comfortable passing on our guests (and new friends) to their next destination.  But unlike many associations, we all meet twice a year to make sure we are very familiar with these spots and to discuss how to better assist travelers on their New England tours.

Having just returned from our latest gathering, we are excited about a new “Rewards Program” set to launch in the next few weeks.  However, we haven’t been given the green light to unveil the specifics about the program, but we can say that it’s going to be a phenomenal addition to any New England tour.  Plus, great savings at these New England Bed and Breakfasts are certainly nothing to sneer at!  Now, despite the fact we haven’t dotted every or crossed each T, it is time to start planning that scenic tour of New England.  But take my word for it – making sure to visit every participating inn will definitely pay off, and, of course, add to your enjoyment of the region.

Karen Brown and Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

November 28th, 2011 by avadmin

Although many visitors to our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast arrive on the recommendation of Karen Brown and her New England Guidebook, many others have never heard of this valuable travel resource.  Honestly, it wasn’t obvious to me why so many choose to rely on Karen Brown’s expertise for guidance

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast in Karen Brown Guidebook

Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is featured in Karen Brown's New England Guidebook

when planning trips both within the United States and abroad.  All that changed recently, when I had the opportunity to speak personally with Karen and to actually read one of her books.  I can’t believe what great advice she has for planning the perfect New England tour, as well as travels across the globe.

It can often be overwhelming to plan a trip to an entirely unfamiliar area, especially with recent explosion of online review sites (with widely varying degrees of reliability), booking sites, and travel blogs.  Who is a traveler to trust?  A trip planner for 35 years, Karen Brown has written 17 guides to Europe, Mexico, and the United States, never once accepting or soliciting payment for her services.  She has actually visited every establishment she recommends, including our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast.  In order to keep up with today’s virtual culture, Karen Brown’s World of Travel provides extremely helpful information about lodging, restaurants, and attractions – though I must admit, the level of detail available in her books more than justifies the purchase price (e-reader users, rejoice – Karen Brown is soon to debut the new virtual version of the guidebooks).

Although the Internet can be a great resource for directions, Karen Brown will make sure you don’t miss out on the sights and attractions along the way.  Sure, weather.com can tell you the forecast for your destination of choice, but Karen Brown will even translate that into appropriate packing suggestions.

Karen Brown’s New England Guidebook does such a wonderful job of portraying the area around our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, but it is the careful suggestions and detailed itineraries for travel throughout New England for which I am most grateful.  Congratulations, Karen, for producing such a quality product and thank you again for selecting the Maine Stay Inn as one of your choice destinations!
