Kennebunkport Sunset Picnic Locations

On an evening jog through Kennebunkport Maine, I took in the glorious views of a stunning coastal sunset, which made me think about the ideal spots for a scenic picnic.  Whether you choose to indulge in a glass of wine or a lobster feast, there are a plethora of incredible destinations while catching the sunset. Since Kennebunkport is known for its coastline, many of the best spots are, naturally, along the water.  Recently I discovered Silas Perkins Park, a small piece of… Read More

A Lazy Day – Getting Takeout in Kennebunkport

In a town like Kennebunkport Maine that is full of incredible restaurants and food shoppes, it is hard to imagine feeling so relaxed or slothful that only takeout or delivery will do.  But Saturday was one of those days!  Victoria (a fantastic member of the staff at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, as well as a friend) and I prepared to close up for the evening while we waited to greet the last few arriving guests.  A light rain was just beginning… Read More

Celebrate National Goat Cheese Month in Kennebunkport

Did you know that August is National Goat Cheese Month?  I sure didn’t!  But as usual, I can’t think of a better place to celebrate than in Kennebunkport Maine.  Some of our favorite restaurants offer fantastic dishes featuring goat cheese, as do some popular entrees at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast.  One of my favorite things about summertime is the plethora of fresh, juicy berries, something that we feature regularly on the morning menu.  And conveniently, strawberries go great with goat cheese!  So… Read More

Circus Smirkus Returns to Kennebunkport Maine

Two of the most fun-filled days of summer in Kennebunkport Maine are fast approaching, as Circus Smirkus plans to return to Rockin’ Horse Stables on Monday and Tuesday.  While this is a youth performance with all of the acrobatics accomplished by kids aged 6 to 18, it is not intended exclusively for children.  I just bought my tickets and you should too! Especially since all four shows were sold out in 2010, purchasing tickets in advance are key.  But don’t make the… Read More

Best Summer Storm Watching In Kennebunkport Maine

Tonight, as a summer thunderstorm rolled through Kennebunkport Maine, I started to think about where the best spots in town are to view these gems of summertime.  Yes, there is sometimes nothing better than a sudden rainstorm that brings enormous droplets of water that leave half-dollar splats on your windshield, bringing down the humidity levels that had steadily risen through the afternoon. This evening’s violent squall happened to bring Skittles sized hail to some areas, but our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast (and… Read More

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

Best Places to Eat Lobster in Kennebunkport Maine

Kennebunkport Maine is a quintessential Maine town, and when I think of Maine, I think of two things – lobster and blueberries.  But since nobody makes gluten-free blueberry pie, I’ll have to tackle lobsters (not that I mind, of course!). At age two, my parents decided to expose me to this New England treat and let me share my mother’s dinner. Unfortunately for her, I ate the whole thing.  That started me on the road to becoming a crustacean connoisseur. Frankly, it’s pretty… 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
