Fall Foliage in New England

The 2012 Fall foliage in New England has been spectacular, with some truly spectacular colors.  And in Kennebunkport, we have been fortunate to enjoy quite a long foliage season.  While the weather forecasters have just announced that the area has become “past peak,” that certainly doesn’t mean that there aren’t lots of glorious leafy displays to enjoy in the area!  It’s particularly hard to believe that the weatherman thinks we’ve seen the best of the colors, because the giant maple outside my… Read More

The Front Porch of Kennebunkport is Now Open!

Spring Skiing From Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

Despite the unseasonably warm weather we’ve had lately, there’s still plentiful skiing to be had not far from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast.  Luckily for vistors to Kennebunkport Maine,  there are many wonderful mountain options located close enough for a day (or even half day) ski trip.  Although it may seem like spring is upon us, the New England ski season is far from over, with some of the best conditions yet to be seen during the spring months. With a variety of amenities… Read More
