3 Ways to Surprise Mom this Mother's Day: Kennebunkport Maine Style

Tomorrow marks a very special day here in Kennebunkport, Maine and many countries all around the world – Mother’s Day! We are so honored to celebrate all the wonderful women staying at the Maine Stay this weekend, and of course the women in our very own family. But when we think about what makes Mother’s Day really special, it is surprising Mom with something really memorable. And in the midst of the Mother’s Day ads, cards, flowers, and blogs, we found a great video asking moms what they really want. The answer? Time for herself away from the family! And what better place for a little pampering than Kennebunkport?

So this year, give mom what she really wants – time to enjoy herself! This finding didn’t apply to just moms of young children either – moms want a chance to rest, relax, and enjoy without worrying about chores, kids, work or the other things on her mind. Sounds like a vacation, right? Yep, sounds like that to us too!

When it comes to celebrating Mom this year, here are 3 great ways to surprise her:

  1. Plan a special getaway for mom to enjoy the pampering she deserves. Whether she’s getting a way for just a day, a week, or a weekend, there is so much to spoil her in Kennebunkport – the views, the food, the shopping, but also great day spas for mani/pedis, massages, or facials to amp up the relaxation.
  2. Enjoy a getaway with mom to spend some quality time together! And fortunately, the Maine Stay Inn has lots of great options – suites with separate sleeping areas, rooms with two queen beds, or adjoining rooms so everyone can have their own space.
  3. Give a gift certificate so Mom can plan her dream getaway! Maybe she wants to visit during the beautiful springtime or perhaps a beach vacation in the summer time. Maybe the fall foliage is calling her name, or maybe she’d like a cozy getaway to enjoy a winter wonderland – with a gift certificate, she can choose!

This year we are celebrating all of the moms with flower arrangements and keepsake vases just to say “thanks for being wonderful!” and, of course, they will all wake up to our signature gourmet breakfast – either in the dining room or delivered to their very own suite! So instead of whipping up pancakes at home, let the Maine Stay take care of that for you and celebrate the women in your life the way they deserve!
