Enjoying a Winter Getaway in Kennebunkport Maine

Kennebunkport Maine may be one of America’s top beach destinations, but it has recently been recognized as a top 10 winter getaway as well! The area has a reputation for scenic vistas and stunning historic homes, incredible dining, and charming boutiques, and none of that changes once the weather turns colder.  It just means that cozying up by a glowing fireplace or enjoying a luxurious soak in a jacuzzi tub at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast is the perfect way to top off… Read More

Superbowl Sunday in Kennebunkport Maine

It’s hard to believe that Superbowl Sunday is just a week away, and after the “Deflategate” scandal, even the non football fans are surely going to be tuning in from Kennebunkport.  While I am definitely not a regular sports watcher, this broadcast tops my “must-see” list for next weekend, and there’s no better place (aside from the stadium, perhaps) to watch than one of the great pubs around Kennebunkport Maine.  Now since the commercials are my favorite part of the Superbowl, and I… Read More

It’s hard to believe that the closing weekend of Christmas is already upon us, but tonight’s tree lighting and fireworks display started the festivities off with a bang – literally!

The holiday season comes alive each year with Kennebunkport, Maine‘s Christmas Prelude, and the town is now aglow with millions of glittering lights. The Dock Square tree is lit with its signature lobster topper, and the lobster trap tree in Cape Porpoise is looking especially beautiful.  Christmas garlands line the downtown area and historic district, and historic homes (including our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast) are sparkling with their own Christmas lights.

Winter Activities For Your Bed and Breakfast Getaway

With the Superbowl and Winter Olympics on the immediate horizon, I started thinking about my favorite winter activities and trends for those enjoying a bed and breakfast getaway.  Now, the first thing that comes to mind in terms of winter sports is usually skiing, and mountains are not something that Southern Maine is really known for.  But truthfully, not everyone is a ski bunny, so I don’t personally  see a lack of slopes as a big drawback when it comes to planning… Read More
