Visiting a Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast from Boston

As I drove toward our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfastfrom Boston, it struck me how much changes in 86 miles.  Yes, that major metropolitan area lies less than an hour and a half away, but it’s worlds apart.  The pace here is noticeably slower and the stars brighter.  Now I could go on and on about why Kennebunkport Maine is so different from city life, but that’s a matter for a separate blog.  But, nevertheless, on my short drive I realized just how… Read More

Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Kennebunkport

Since I was one of those kids that would try (and almost always love) anything you put on my plate, the idea of hunting for restaurants with kids’ menus is pretty foreign, but fortunately for families visiting Kennebunkport, there are quite a few great options for pint-sized visitors.  Inspired by a little guy visiting us with his family this week, I decided to look into menus that are specifically designed with kids in mind, because while most Kennebunkport restaurants are happy to… Read More

Finding Gluten Free Pizza in Kennebunkport Maine

Even in a place known for its dining scene like Kennebunkport Maine, there comes a time when visitors and locals alike just need a good pizza.  Now, because of some incredible foresight and strict zoning laws, you’re not going to find a Domino’s or Papa Gino’s anywhere nearby, but even that wouldn’t help us gluten-free folks.  Fortunately, though there are three places in and around Kennebunkport Maine where you can satisfy that craving without compromising your diet (not the waist-watching one – sorry!).… Read More

Maine Restaurant Week Returns to Kennebunkport Maine!

Maine Restaurant Week is a wonderful way to test out new restaurants or enjoy different options at some old favorites, and fortunately for us, several Kennebunkport Maine restaurants have chosen to participate in 2012.  But if you’re interested in exploring, there are loads of options in other nearby communities.   So as I started looking forward to this year’s Maine Restaurant Week (March 1-10, 2012), I began to think about why exactly I enjoy eating in restaurants and narrowed it down to three… Read More

Have Your Cake at Chase Hill Bakery in Kennebunkport Maine

All of us at the Maine Stay love to eat, so when there’s something to celebrate, we reach for cake – and now there is finally a great bakery in Kennebunkport Maine!  Many people, both locals and visitors alike, have been bemoaning the closing of Port Bakery for nearly a year.  Once a staple in Lower Village, it shut its doors and gave rise to Pedro’s Restaurant, an excellent Mexican Cantina (which we desperately needed).  So while we’ve relished a non-traditional Kennebunkport… Read More

Satisfying Your Sweet Tooth in Kennebunkport Maine

If you’re anything like me and your “sweet tooth” has taken over your entire mouth, there are ample opportunities to squelch even the strongest of cravings in Kennebunkport Maine.  While there are occasionally days when the smell of freshly baking cookies in our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast can calm my sugar cravings, it takes multiple servings to reach satiation.  Fortunately for me, there are oodles of amazing spots in Kennebunkport Maine to satisfy any confectionary craving! I scream, you scream, we all… Read More

Farm to Table Dining in Kennebunkport Maine

Before Farm-To-Table dining became the new “it” thing for restaurants, several Kennebunkport Maine restaurants offered this to their patrons.  Just down the street from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast lies Bandaloop, a small, slightly funky restaurant that focuses on utilizing local ingredients and organic products.  Their menu changes regularly so as to accommodate the freshest seasonal ingredients.  A personal favorite, I could honestly eat at Bandaloop any (and every) night of the week.  Not only is the cuisine good for you and… Read More

The Kennebunkport Festival is Here!

So you’ve missed Day 1 of the Kennebunkport Festival, but it’s not too late to take part in some or all of the exciting events that make this week so special.  In fact, there’s still room in tomorrow’s “Art of Dining” intimate dinners.  Just steps from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast lies the Samuel Stairs House.  This stunning manse was built in 1810 and boasts one of the tallest spiral staircases in New England (it’s three and a half stories high!).  Incredible… Read More

Just Around the Corner: the Kennebunkport Festival

With Memorial Day Weekend off to a great start, all of us in Kennebunkport Maine are looking forward to next week’s exciting event – the Kennebunkport Festival.  This kick-off to summer has been around for several years under a variety of names, including Arts in the Inns and the Kennebunkport Fine Living Festival, but this year the reins have been turned over to Maine Magazine.  Despite all the changes, the Kennebunkport Festival is celebrating the start of the summer season with a… Read More

Pizza Pies in Kennebunkport Maine

At our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, I regularly get asked where to find the best pizza in Kennebunkport Maine. Since I could never eat enough lobster, I can’t imagine looking for pizza when visiting a seafood mecca (Maine does supply over 75% of the nation’s lobsters).  It doesn’t help, however, that I am gluten-free.  But I seem to be overruled – people just have to know where to find the best pizza pies around. Hands down, the best pizza comes from Grissini,… Read More
