A Modern Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast Renovation

Springtime means Kennebunkport, Maine comes to life after winter’s slumber–but although this seaside town gets a little sleepy during the wintertime, there’s always lots to do in the area no matter the time of year! But it also means that it’s time to show off our hard work and unveil the new changes at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast. We hope that you enjoy the renovations as much as we do!

Over the years, Cottage Suite 8 has seen more than a few changes, but the latest reno has us saying “wow!” It’s hard to believe that the first time we saw it, Cottage 8 had white wainscoting, blue gingham wallpaper, and a full kitchen (complete with oven!)–and it was one of the very first suites we tackled. It became a beachy king suite pretty quickly but then became the perfect spot for a casual cottage with two double beds. And as much as we liked it, let’s face it – double beds and just a

And as much as we liked it, let’s face it–double beds are just a touch too small–even for just one person!

It took us quite a while to figure out how to change the space to accommodate two queen beds, and even longer to figure out how to also give visitors two bathroom sinks without losing too much room in the living space. But we did it!

And after nearly five months of work, the new Modern Cottage Suite 8 is here! Guests will enjoy the spacious bedroom with two ultra-plush queen beds, custom made for the Maine Stay with upholstered leather headboard and built in storage. The living space features cozy arm chairs, a pedestal table, and bar space with flat screen TV. A custom desk rounds out the space and is the perfect spot for checking emails, placing your next Amazon order, or just streaming your favorite Netflix episodes.

You’ll enjoy much more elbow-room at the spacious double sinks complete with granite counters. Inside the bathroom, you’ll find a fully tiled space with large glassed in shower with two shower heads! There’s plenty of storage throughout the space, and ample locations to hang towels and bathing suits – a must! has seen lots of changes over the past few years, but the overhaul of its spacious living room was a massive shift in the ambiance of this suite.

While we certainly think we hit the nail on the head, it’s up to you to share your thoughts on our changes! We hope you enjoy this exciting renovation as much as we do while visiting us in Kennebunkport!
