Getting Ready for a Winter Wonderland

Kennebunkport and the 1802 House are getting ready for a Winter wonderland.

We’ve been hard at work all summer relaunching the Historic Inns of Kennebunkport. In recent years there have been a few changes to our wonderful group of small, historic inns in the area. We sat down (via zoom) to talk about a relaunch, a new webpage, a Facebook page and a new chapter.


Historic Inns of Kennebunkport

The town of Kennebunkport is rich with history, from our founding as a town in 1653, to earning our famous name in 1821. Each of the Historic inns is independently owner operated and is at least 100 years old. Check out the newly launched Historic Inns of Kennebunkport website, where you can find more information on any of the three inns, Kennebunkport, and our events.


Speaking of our events, we have a few that we’re getting ready for and we want you to be the first to know! Stay tuned to your newsletter and our 1802 House social media accounts for more details and mark your calendars for some winter wonderland fun.


Christmas on the Porch

Here at the 1802 House, we’ve been trying to figure out the best way to spread holiday cheer this Prelude season. On each Saturday of Prelude (12/05 and 12/12) from 6-7:30pm we’ll be hosting Christmas on the Porch. We are inviting our guests to enjoy hot roasted chestnuts, mince pies and mulled wines while they snuggle up in our gardens. Enjoy our wonderful Christmas lights display and keep warm by the fire-pit or braziers around the property. More information on that to follow on all our social media accounts so stay tuned!


Our Prelude guests will be familiar with the candlelit tours of the Historic Inns. Due to current safety guidelines, these tours will be virtual this year and available on the Prelude website. 


Historic Inns Scavenger Hunt

Historic Inns of Kennebunkport will be hosting a Scavenger Hunt throughout the whole of Prelude. Get ready to head to various locations around the Kennebunks for an adventure. More details to follow on our Historic Inns of Kennebunkport webpage, and social media accounts. Win big by taking the best photos at these locations and tagging us on social media!


The most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner. Be sure to book your stay at the best place in town. Check us out on TripAdvisor, we’re rated number one in Kennebunkport. We’ll put the kettle on for you.
