Winter Weekend Activities in Kennebunkport Maine

A long weekend lies just ahead and that got me thinking about all of the great winter activities there are to enjoy in Kennebunkport Maine and the surrounding area.  While some people aren’t huge fans of lots of snow, it sure makes things awfully pretty and we might even see a very light dusting on Saturday – what a treat! It’s just the kind that transforms our already lovely winter landscape into a perfect winter wonderland, without causing any trouble on the roads or even much shoveling!… 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

Kennebunkport Maine Found Nemo!

Now that snow storm Nemo has come and gone in Kennebunkport Maine, we are reflecting on one of the largest snowfalls ever and enjoying the beautiful scenery that comes with it!  Just 86 miles to our south, Boston received 24.9 inches of the white stuff, making it the 5th largest snowfall total from a single storm, and nearby Portland, ME broke all time records with their 31.9 inches of snow. While we didn’t get quite that much, there is plenty of snow… Read More

Snow Day fun at a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

Many folks around New England are going to enjoy an unexpected snow day tomorrow, but we think the best way to spend a day is at a Kennebunkport bed and breakfast!  Honestly, what could be better than playing in some fresh powder?  Yes, we’re forecasted to get all white stuff, unlike the southern coastlines of New England, and we’re excited and raring to go!  Fortunately for us, Kennebunkport is tops when it comes to snow removal, which means that even in some… Read More

Winter Wonderland Activities in Kennebunkport Maine

A light dusting of snow fell today in Kennebunkport Maine, which really got me thinking about all of the great winter activities to enjoy in the area.  And while some people aren’t crazy about the white stuff, today’s coating was just right – the kind that makes the landscape look like a perfect winter wonderland, without causing any trouble on the roads or even much shoveling!  All those big, fluffy snowflakes just made all of us anxious to head outside and enjoy… Read More

A Kennebunkport Maine Vacation in the Winter

Upon my return to Kennebunkport, ME, after an innkeeping conference, I began to ponder why so many people have the wrong idea about a wintertime Maine vacation.  I can’t tell you how many times I was asked what I do in the winter, as though Kennebunkport is some kind of arctic tundra where all forms of life hibernate with the cold temperatures.  Granted, the conference was held in the South, where the definition of “cold” hovers around the mid 50s.  But honestly, there… Read More

Planning a Worry Free Getaway to Kennebunkport Maine

Tonight’s weather forecast for Kennebunkport Maine shows that winter may actually be on its way, as we are expecting a dusting of snow tonight.  And here that means 3-6 inches of the white stuff.  That is enough to make lots of people run for cover or out to the grocery store for ample supplies of milk and bread (french toast, anyone?), but not here.  It truly is remarkable – in Kennebunkport Maine a half of a foot of snow is just old hat.… Read More

A Winter Getaway to Kennebunkport Maine

When most people think of a winter getaway to Kennebunkport Maine, they envision snowy scenes, horse-drawn sleigh rides, and outdoor skating.  And that is usually very typical of this New England Village starting around the holidays.  But this year, things have been unseasonably warm!  In fact, the first few flakes of the winter (not counting this fall’s freak Halloween storm) fell just yesterday, but today’s temps soaring into the fifties wiped away nearly all traces of white.  Normally at this time of… Read More
