The holiday season is a particularly beautiful time here in Kennebunkport Maine, and New Year’s Eve is no exception. This year, a light snowfall draped this seaside village in white, for the perfect backdrop to ring in 2016! And once the sun set on 2016, the fun began!
Each year, guests at our boutique Kennebunnkport hotel are treated to a New Year’s Eve party that all
are invited to enjoy. Some visitors chose to head out on the town for a special dinner or music and dancing, while others enjoyed a quieter evening in, but a great time was had all around! Starting at 5 pm, loads of nibbles and noshes (both hot and cold) were dished up for folks to enjoy throughout the evening. This year old fashioned card games (particularly Kings Around The Corner) were the favorite past time – in addition to enjoying the conversation and company of others. The Maine Stay happily provided bubbly beverages like sparkling water, a variety of sodas, and homemade punch, but visitors all brought their favorite adult beverages of choice.
Our New Year’s Day brunch kicked off 2017 with a bang – with plenty of food dished up over three courses. And, of course, guests staying in any luxury cottage suite or suite in the main house had the option to enjoy their meals delivered right to their door! Even folks with healthy diet resolutions enjoyed the morning meal, with an apple, melon, and raspberry starter, poached eggs with homemade corned beef hash (lots of protein there!) and an asparagus and pea side (plus a delicious pound cake for good measure). But no meal is complete without dessert, and we capped it off with a pumpkin parfait!
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy year, and we hope to see you in 2017!
