Spring Skiing From Our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast

Despite the unseasonably warm weather we’ve had lately, there’s still plentiful skiing to be had not far from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast.  Luckily for vistors to Kennebunkport Maine,  there are many wonderful mountain options located close enough for a day (or even half day) ski trip.  Although it may seem like spring is upon us, the New England ski season is far from over, with some of the best conditions yet to be seen during the spring months. With a variety of amenities… Read More

Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Digs Out From Wintry Blast

A mild February lured us into believing that springtime was just around the corner (and it may indeed be!), but a surprise winter storm has left this Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast digging out from under nearly a foot of snow!  It started slowly, with a few lonely flakes falling throughout the day on Wednesday, and even by dinnertime, the accumulation was hardly noticeable.  But by the time breakfast rolled around, shovels were definitely needed, so Walter spent the morning dusting off cars… Read More

A Moonlit Walk in Kennebunkport

For many, winter in Kennebunkport means a season to enjoy an afternoon of snow shoeing or hiking along snow packed beaches.  Not this year!  Unfortunately for our snow-dependent hobbies, there has essentially been no snow since a major storm on Halloween.  Instead of packed trails for cross country skis and snowshoes, we have just grass trails, and even that is beginning to turn green!  But that does mean that the walking and hiking opportunities are far better than ever given this time of… 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
