Historic Kennebunkport Inns Prepare For Garden Party

Tomorrow’s Garden Party is quickly approaching and a group of Historic Kennebunkport Inns are working ’round the clock (okay, maybe not quite!) to prepare for the parties!  And we’re no exception, which means that the gardens are groomed, the lawns mowed, and the kitchen is in high gear.  So tomorrow, instead of our traditional tea and warm, freshly baked cookies in the afternoon, guests of the Maine Stay Inn can enjoy a teatime reminiscent of those across the pond and hop aboard… Read More

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast to Host Garden Tea Party

As part of this weekend’s Kennebunkport Festival festivities, our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is getting ready to host a fun tea party in our backyard!  In addition to a variety of teas (both hot and chilled!), we’ll be bringing out lots of traditional teatime favorites. Think English inspired – miniature lemon pound cakes with fresh lemon curd, scones and oh-so-indulgent clotted cream, and cucumber-mint sandwiches!  So guests will be able to soak up some rays while relaxing on the lawn and enjoying… Read More

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Offers Awesome June Savings!

Today marks an exciting day at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast– the start of June and of our incredible early summer special.  Yes, while bed and breakfasts throughout the area have entered their summertime pricing, we’ve decided to make a June vacation even more affordable!  Though the water temperatures haven’t quite reached their annual peaks, a day at the beach this month is sure to be just as lovely.  In fact, with the kiddos not out of school just yet, the sands… Read More

5 Reasons to Choose a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast This Summer

I hate to admit it, but I am a teeny bit biased – I just love BnBs, so staying at a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast for a summer vacation would seem like a natural choice, but it turns out that there are plenty of folks who have only stayed in big hotels.  For them, choosing to visit a B&B would stretch their comfort zone.  But as I enjoyed a leisurely jog through town today, I passed the only big hotels in town,… Read More

Kennebunkport Hotels to Host Garden Party

For many, the Kennebunkport Festival serves as the area’s official kick-off to summer, and this year instead of sponsoring an event, several small Kennebunkport hotels and inns have teamed up to host a progressive Garden Party.  Much like a “round robin” or progressive dinner, guests of the Historic Inns of Kennebunkport can enjoy a chauffeured tour of each of the unique gardens and lush lawns, and in a limo, no less!  Yes, a limo!  But while most of the inns are within… Read More

A Taste of Summer In Kennebunkport Maine

After a day like today, it’s hard to believe that summer isn’t already here and that spring is, in fact, just on its way to Kennebunkport Maine.  By the time we finished serving breakfast it was already well into the 50s, and more than a few guests of our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast donned on shorts for a midday walk.  Granted, it was still a little too chilly for that in my book, but by lunchtime, I was definitely regretting the choice to… Read More

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
