Winter Wonderland Comes to Kennebunkport Maine

After a lifetime of living in New England, I’ve come to entirely distrust the weather forecasts, but much to my chagrin, the meteorologists were spot on this past weekend, with their snowy forecast for Kennebunkport Maine.  And truthfully, we’d all been wishing for a little of the flaky stuff to really make it feel like the holiday season.  None arrived for Thanksgiving, and the ground remained bare for the first weekend of Christmas Prelude.  The second weekend of Prelude arrived with not… Read More

A Romantic Evening in Kennebunkport Maine

On a blustery evening like tonight, there is nothing better than a cozy, romantic dinner before settling in for the night, and fortunately for everyone, Kennebunkport Maine has some great destinations that fit the bill perfectly! Now, I have to admit that sometimes on wintry nights like this one, visitors choose to bring their dinners in, to enjoy before the living room fire (yep, I’ve certainly been known to do this myself!), because it is just oh-so-tempting to hop into bed or… 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

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
