Now that MLK weekend has passed, it really seems that love is in the air, and Kennebunkport Maine is no exception.  This morning’s brief dusting of snow gave way to bright blue skies, and despite the chilly temps, it was one of those days that was just perfect for a romantic Valentine’s Getaway.  The sun was shining, the snow glittered on the bare tree branches, and the sunlight sparkled on the ocean waves.  Downtown Kennebunkport Maine looked especially charming, and the shops were primed for browsing – and warming up during an outdoor stroll.  With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it really is time to plan that romantic getaway for you and your special someone.  And snow bunny or not, a Kennebunkport Maine bed and breakfast, like the Maine Stay Inn, is a perfect place for your intimate escape!  With gourmet breakfast, yummy afternoon snacks, and hosts dedicated to making sure your stay goes without a hitch in a seaside village known for its world class dining and great shopping opportunities, what more could you need!  Consider a room or suite in the main house, a historic Kennebunkport inn, and savor gourmet breakfast served to you in our Victorian dining room.  Or, for the option of breakfast in bed, choose one of the Cottage Suites for breakfast delivered to your door.  Yes, I mean room service!  Having steaming, gourmet breakfast delivered to your door is a little out of the ordinary for a Maine bed and breakfast, but we like to do things that are out of the ordinary.  You’ll get the same delicious meal served in dining room, but in the privacy of your suite!

To make your Valentine’s getaway extra-special, consider indulging in a spa treatment at one of the area day spas like Cottage Breeze Day Spa.  It’s close enough that you could walk, but after indulging in a relaxing massage or facial, I would sure be anxious to hop back in bed to lounge by the fire as soon as possible.  And since they’ve got parking, that’s definitely the way to go.  If that’s not your cup of tea or coffee, think about something every girl loves – chocolate.  The Romance Package is perfect for snuggling up with your special someone for a romantic (and tasty!) weekend. Enjoy homemade dessert and a fruit and cheese plate delivered to your door OR choose a fruit and cheese plate with sparkling cider and flutes.  So this Valentine’s Day, surprise your other half with a romantic getaway to Kennebunkport Maine.

With MLK weekend around the corner, it is starting to hit me just how quickly Valentine’s Day is approaching, and that means it’s time to start planning your romantic bed and breakfast getaway.  This year, Valentine’s falls not only on a Friday, but on the Friday of a holiday weekend, which means that you can take full advantage of our Third Night Free special!  So ask your neighbors to pick up

your newspaper and stay an extra night for no charge!  Now that that’s sorted out, it’s time to work out the details… the room, the dining, the special surprises, etc.  And at the Maine Stay Inn we’re all happy to help you iron out those details that make your getaway especially romantic.  Because we know that everyone is looking for something a little different in their romantic bed and breakfast getaway, each room is individually designed and there are no two alike.  But you can be sure that they’ve all got plush, comfy beds, fine linens, and those little details that really distinguish a bed and breakfast from a hotel.  Browsing the website can give you a feel for the each of the rooms an suites, but if you’d prefer some input, we’re always happy to help.

Fortunately, there are lots of restaurants in Kennebunkport Maine that set the mood for a romantic meal, but if you’d like dessert delivered to your room, we can certainly handle that too.  Are flowers a must for your special someone?  We’ve got great florists in the area that can have your ideal arrangement waiting for you on arrival.  But one of the things that I think sets the Maine Stay apart from other romantic bed and breakfasts is the ability to have your breakfast delivered to most of our suites!  And honestly, what could be better than breakfast in bed during Valentine’s Weekend?  But almost no matter what you’ve got in mind for your romantic bed and breakfast getaway, anyone at the Maine Stay Inn is happy to help make it possible!

Romantic Getaways to Maine Bed and Breakfasts

February 13th, 2013 by Judi Hauer

Believe it or not, Valentine’s Day is upon us and that means it is the perfect time for planning romantic getaways, and what better place than to Maine bed and breakfasts?!  With the landscape rejuvenated by the recent snowfall, the scene is set for an idyllic wintertime escape, so this Valentine’s Day, skip the flowers and chocolate and trade up to something extra special for the one you love and plan a getaway to take advantage of the incredible beauty of the season.  For many people, the idea of Maine bed and breakfasts conjures up images of doilies and lace, fake flowers and teddy bears, which doesn’t exactly scream “romance.”  But the truth is that the B&Bs of today offer amenities that are perfect for setting the mood, so it’s time to banish the idea of creaky beds and and nosy neighbors!  Here are some of the things visitors enjoy during their romantic getaways:

  • Say bye-bye to those kitchy patterns, because the Maine Stay Inn offers modern, contemporary, and transitional decor, as
    Dessert by the fire?  Yes, please!

    Dessert by the fire? Yes, please!

    well as updated and simplified decor that brings the main house’s Victorian identity into the 21st century!  And along with it comes technology to match, with flat screen televisions and iPad/iPod docking stations.

  • What could be better than snuggling up with your special someone in front of a glowing fire?  Only one that you don’t have to stoke yourself!  So take advantage of the ambience of the warm gas fireplaces in most rooms and suites.  But if your chosen spot doesn’t offer a gas one, we’ve got electric fireplaces for that very purpose.  Not to mention the fact that every visitor is always welcome to enjoy the warmth of the living room fire!
  • No more shared bathrooms like Maine bed and breakfasts of the olden days, my friends, because every room and suite at the Maine Stay offers private baths, many with those features that set the scene for your romantic getaways.  Yes, you’ll find showers built for two and even double whirlpool tubs!
  • But romantic getaways wouldn’t be complete without breakfast in bed, and guess what?  You can even find that in our cottage suites and deluxe fireplace suite 12 in the main house.

There’s no question about it – Maine bed and breakfasts really are the the spot for your next escape, and Valentine’s Day is the perfect reason to get away!
