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

Late Summer Savings at a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

It seems like this summer has just flown by, and everyone I talk to seems to feel the same way, so our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast has decided to make squeezing in an end of summer vacation even more affordable!  So starting this Sunday, you can enjoy rates starting at just $199.  That means that any Sunday through Thursday night (with the exception of Labor Day weekend) until September 20, you can take advantage of these great rates.  But not to worry,… 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

Goose Rocks Beach in Kennebunkport Open for Visitors

After many years of litigation between homeowners in Goose Rocks Beach and the Town of Kennebunkport, visitors this summer are likely to see few changes during their trip out to Goose Rocks.  For those who don’t know, Goose Rocks Beach is the northeastern part of Kennebunkport that lies on the Biddeford line along the Atlantic Ocean.  Named after a crest of rocks that look like geese floating on the water when exposed during low tide, this area is primarily residential with a… 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 mini heat wave arrived in Kennebunkport Maine just in time for the July 4th holiday weekend, and while temps in the low 90s are a bit unusual in this neck of the woods, everyone seems to be enjoying a chance to hit the beach!  Fortunately, there’s lots of coastline to enjoy in southern Maine, and you don’t have to venture far from the Maine Stay Inn to find a spot that’s right for you.  In fact, we’re located just a block… Read More

Fireworks on the Fourth in Kennebunkport Maine

It’s hard to believe that July Fourth is upon us, but that means that we will get to enjoy fireworks commemorating Independence Day in Kennebunkport Maine!  There aren’t too many small towns in New England (or anywhere in the country, for that matter) that are lucky enough to enjoy fireworks displays as large or involved as ours, and boy, are we ever lucky!  And considering our seaside location and undulating coastline, there are lots of great spots to enjoy the show.  While… Read More

Kennebunkport Hotels and B&Bs Gear Up for July 4th!

Summer is in the air and all around town you can feel the excitement gearing up for July 4th, and the Kennebunkport hotels and bed and breakfasts are certainly no exception!  To show our patriotism and our sense of celebration, everyone is encouraged to dress their best in red, white, and blue this Thursday.  And with our flags out and flying proudly, we’re excited to celebrate our nation’s Independence Day!  Plus, since it falls on a Thursday, that means that most folks will… Read More

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
