Spring is really here, and this weekend is right on trend, with temperatures for Saturday forecasted to soar into the low 70s! Given that we had snow in Kennebunkport on Monday, this sure is the classic way that spring rolls here in New England. But in addition to getting outside and enjoying the beauty of spring on the Maine Coast, there are tons of fun things to do in the area. Here is just a sampling of the upcoming events and activities in the Kennebunkport Maine area:
- Early spring is great for birdwatching, because there isn’t enough on the trees to obscure your view. So this Friday, reserve a spot at the Wells Reserve for their sunset “Woodcock Watch” – a guided sunset tour of the Laudholm Farm preserve where you’ll look for the male’s signature display sure to impress you and the lady woodcocks!
- All weekend long you can enjoy the Farm + Table Pre-Opening Sale at the American
Legion Hall. Located across from Kennebunport police station just a mile from the Maine Stay Inn, you are sure to find loads of incredible pieces of home decor. Farm + Table is my go-to for unique gifts so you can bet I’ll be there checking out their sale, because you can’t beat 50% off! 9 AM – 5 PM.
- Saturday is an evening for the arts, that is for sure! Head just a few miles to our south and enjoy a Tim Janis Concert at the York Community Auditorium. With shows at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., there is no reason to miss out on this awesome musical performance with his first new album since 2010! Or head further south to Kittery’s Haley Art Gallery for their opening and reception.
- Looking for something a little more relaxed? Check out Karaoke Night at Alisson’s Restaurant on Friday Night starting at 10 p.m.!
Of course, at this time of year, some of the best things to do are explore the natural beauty of Southern Maine. With miles of trails to trek, dozens of nature preserves to enjoy, and miles of coastline to drink in, there is no limit to how you can spend you spring getaway here in Kennebunkport.
It is amazing that it is April already, and that means we are are celebrating our anniversary – our 11th one here in Kennebunkport and at our boutique hotel! And since we like to celebrate our anniversary with all of you, we decided to roll out some specials in honor of this special occasion. So as the April showers become spring flowers, we have three great ways to save on your spring getaway to Maine!
We haven’t had our new beer and wine license for long, but we have two special wines that for this month only we’re offering for just $11! So whether you have a trip planned already or are looking for something to put on the calendar, all month long visitors can order a bottle of red or white to their room for just $11. If kicking back with a glass or two doesn’t tickle your fancy, you can enjoy a long weekend (or midweek getaway, too) and get your third night for just $11. And with glorious spring weather in store and the gardens of Kennebunkport Maine coming to life, there is so much to enjoy during the spring in Maine. One of the best things about spring, though, is the nice cool nights – perfect for snuggling by the fire. So during the day, grab your sunglasses and get exploring around the coast of Southern Maine, and at night, warm your toes by your very own fireplace!
In the event that neither of those tickle your fancy, stay any time throughout the month of April and enjoy 11% savings! Stay one night? Save 11%. Stay during Patriot’s Day Weekend? Save 11%. Plus, you can still add that $11 bottle of wine! So kick back and relax, and enjoy some R&R with an escape to Kennebunkport and the Maine Stay Inn, our boutique hotel.
