Favorite Things About Kennebunkport Maine

So while last night’s surprise thunderstorms sidelined my plans for some outdoor fun, a day like today reminded me of some of my favorite things about Kennebunkport Maine.  Now, we all know that there are way too many amazing things about this seaside town, so I will do my darnedest to keep this list reasonable.  But since I am making this a short one, apologies if I left anyone else’s faves off! The beach –  Whenever.  No seriously, in rain or shine,… Read More

Hiking “The Secret Garden” in Kennebunkport Maine

As you may know, getting outdoors (no matter the season!) is one of my absolute favorite past times, so when I learned about “The Secret Garden” just over the border from Kennebunkport Maine, I just had to find it.  But after a little bit of research about this hidden gem, I worried that it could potentially be a bit mucky.  And with springtime often associated with “mud season” from the melting snow and showers that bring May flowers the concern was real,… Read More

Celebrating Earth Day In Kennebunkport Maine

It only seems appropriate to celebrate Earth Day by exploring the seemingly endless acres of conservation land in and around Kennebunkport Maine.  We are so fortunate that for the last several decades folks in the area have been working to preserve some stunning parcels of land for all of us to enjoy.  That means that in addition to miles of scenic coastline and sandy beaches, locals and visitors alike have many other peaceful locations to enjoy the nature and wildlife of Southern… Read More

Spring Vacation to a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

For many school districts throughout New England, this week marks April Vacation Week, which means that spring has really arrived at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast.  Now that the vast majority of restaurant that close for portions of the winter have reopened and the shops are transitioning to their springtime window displays, it really feels like winter is finally coming to an end.  For the first time last night, I heard the crickets on my way home from dinner, and a cacophony… Read More

Easter Sunday in Kennebunkport

Hippity-hoppity-hippity-hoppity Easter’s on its way… to Kennebunkport! Easter Sunday really is right around the corner, and all corners of town are gearing up to celebrate.  Although Kennebunkport might be a quaint little town with just over 3,000 people, there are a surprising number of churches that are open for Easter services (and even more that open once the weather gets warmer).  Here are a selection of congregations – I hope I didn’t miss too many! Literally steps from the Maine Stay Inn… Read More

Kennebunkport Festival 2013 is Coming!

Vagina Monologues Comes to Kennebunk

This weekend brings one of the most exciting events of the winter to the Kennebunk/Kennebunkport area – the Vagina Monologues!  And before you correct me, I do know that it is officially spring, but since the crocus buds now have a little covering of snow on them (again? Really, Mother Nature?) and more importantly since this event usually occurs in February, which is solidly winter, I’m going with it.  But I digress.  For the past several years, members from York County’s Domestic Violence… Read More

The 2013 Ogunquit Playhouse Schedule is Here!

Every winter we wait patiently for an exciting announcement and it’s finally here – the 2013 Ogunquit Playhouse Schedule is now up!  For those of you who don’t know, the Ogunquit Playhouse is one of the hidden gems of Southern Maine. 2013 marks its 81st season, and featuring seven outstanding musical theater performances from May to October, it is one of the “must see” activities to add to your list when visiting Kennebunkport Maine.  And fortunately for us, it’s less than fifteen… Read More
