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

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
