Happy New Year!

We’re deep into January and it’s been a little cold in coastal Maine this month.  Guests are getting into the swing of things though and really loving the evenings (or any time of day) by the fire!  While things are quiet this time of year, Kennebunkport is still open for business with lots to see, do and eat.

The 1802 House Bed and Breakfast, along with other local businesses, are Painting the Town Red this year in February.  For those who can’t get away for Valentine’s Day, we’ve got special offers to entice you to come and feel the LOVE the whole month long!

Want to spend some time relaxing, unwinding and reconnecting with each other?  We’ve created an 1802 House Bed and Breakfast February Romance Package to help with that.

Our package includes:

  • Two night accommodations with fireplace
  • Three course gourmet breakfast including our signature Passion Fruit Smoothie
  • $25 off any one of our Spa Packages
  • Luxury Maine chocolates and a rose in room for your arrival

Prices start at $398 per couple (including the cost of the spa treatment)

There’s plenty of things going on in Kennebunkport to keep you busy during your stay.  Here’s a list of some of the things we recommend:

For foodies, the Village Tavern in Kennebunk (one of our favorite restaurants!) has developed red plate specials just for February.  Chef Rich has created a menu theme around all foods red.   This restaurant is a firm local’s favorite and well worth the 10 minute drive from the Inn.

Federal Jacks and the Kennebunkport Brewing Company in Lower Village have several brewery tours and tastings on their schedule.  Tours are held at 4pm on February 7th, 14th, 29th and March 14th and 28th.  Cost is $10 per person which includes four (4) 3 oz tastings and a light snack.  You must be 21 years of age to participate.

Allison’s Restaurant is open for business.  Stop in to catch a game or just warm up in between shops.  Get a free cup of their lobster bisque with any Maine Event Entree order.

One Dock is offering their decadent Flourless Chocolate Torte for Two for $10.  We’re going just for dessert!

Yes, the shops are also open in February and they are offering some amazing specials that you’ll want to check out too:

Coastal Jewelers are offering 30 – 50% off custom jewelry.   It goes without saying – love, romance and jewelry…..

Pet lovers have to stop in and visit Mary Beth at Scalawags Pet Boutique and check out her February specials.  This is Toby’s (our black lab’s) favorite shop, and shop owner, in Maine!

The Beach Grass Shop is offering 25% off one item of choice in the store.  Spend some time browsing and enter their movie trivia game for a gift certificate drawing at the end of February.

That’s just a small sampling of what’s on offer.  We’re putting Kennebunkport on the map as New England’s Most Romantic Town so come and check it out for yourself.  We look forward to sharing the romance with you this February!  #LOVEKPT
