A Welcome Return to Nature

Here at the 1802 house we’re always trying to find the positives in life. While we understand that a travel ban may be prohibitive to a lot of our guests, but we’re also seeing that gas prices are low right now and the weather here in Kennebunkport is absolutely gorgeous. We frequently welcome guests from nearby states and they will attest to the fact that you don’t have to go too far to have an amazing vacation. 

It is true that a number of our bars and restaurants have closed their doors but many are offering a take out or delivery service. We will supply you with napkins, silverware and everything you need to make your meal just as comfortable in our dining room as you would be at the restaurant. We even have wine and beer to compliment your choices.

The beautiful Maine outdoors is still available for all of our guests to experience without restriction. Our beaches are pristine. Rachel Carson and Laudholm nature reserves are open and worth a visit at any time. Bring your bike and cycle the eastern trail (we have guides available.) You can also take a stroll along a portion of its 22 mile route. We have lighthouses, cliff walks and stunning coastal trails all waiting within minutes of the inn. Why not socially distance yourself with a view?

Maine is turning 200 this year so it’s the perfect year for a visit. Our “Vacationland” nickname is as pertinent today as it was when first adopted. Don’t believe us?

With different bicentennial events happening all around this gorgeous state of ours, what better time to make Maine your vacation destination?
