Thanksgiving Eve in Kennebunkport

It’s hard to believe that today marks the 12th anniversary of our family’s first visit to Kennebunkport.  As the snow falls gently around the Maine Stay Inn, the quiet that comes with a snowstorm allows for some reflection on my first visit to this town that I loved at first arrival.  While that day 12 years ago wasn’t quite as blustery as today, snow fell during our Thanksgiving visit to Kennebunkport.  I guess a “White Thanksgiving” is kind of a thing here!… Read More

Cozy Kennebunkport Restaurants to Fight the Winter Chill!

Unlike many other Maine vacation destinations, Kennebunkport truly is a year round community, and even during this “polar vortex” there are lots of great Kennebunkport restaurants that aren’t turned off by the chilly temps.  Sure, there are a few restaurants that close up shop for the winter, but for the most part they are the ones that aren’t really built to be heated effectively.  And every year the local restauranteurs decide when to take their family vacation or close for renovations or… Read More
