It’s February and Kennebunkport is Painting the Town Red

Happy New Year everyone.  It’s that time of year again.  The snow is falling, the weather has turned cold and we’re thinking of ways to warm you up and celebrate Valentine’s Day.  Here in Kennebunkport, we think a day isn’t long enough so we’re celebrating all month long!  Bring your special someone to the Kennebunks and join us as we Paint the Town Red .  

It is quiet this time of year in Maine and that can be a good thing!  In Kennebunkport many of the businesses are open year around and offer specials to entice you to come up and visit in February.  In addition to seafood and lobster being available here year around, there’s some special things happening at our restaurants this month.  Spend the evening of February 13th OR 14th with Old Vines Wine Bar for their French Family Wine Dinners that include a four course meal and french wine pairings.  Oui, oui!  The Boathouse will be offering a Sushi Making Demonstration or you can enjoy wine tasting at The Burleigh.

We’ve got history as well this month.  Join the Brick Store Museum for their ‘Love in the Kennebunks’ tours.  The 45 minute Valentine’s-themed galleries and collections take you on a tour into the lives of the Kennebunkers through their love stories. Ahhhh.

Here at the 1802 House Bed and Breakfast, we’re here to help you celebrate LOVE all month long too.  Five of our six guest rooms have fireplaces and the larger rooms have jetted tubs.  Perfect way to warm up after a brisk walk on the beach!  Every guest who stays two nights or more this month will receive a box of gourmet heart shaped Maine chocolates and a rose in their room when they arrive.  Want to add more romance to your visit?  You can order a dozen beautiful roses in a vase to surprise your someone special.  Call the Inn and we’ll take care of it for you but please, give us 48 hours notice on this one.

If rest and relaxation is your plan, add a couples massage to your stay with us.  The Cottage Breeze Day Spa are giving away a Travel Candle for all 50 minute couples massage or a Glass Candle for an 80 minute couples massage.  Comes with a decorative heart gift bag and pink ribbon.  They book up fast so call early to make your reservation.

Check out the Paint the Town Red website for a full list of what’s happening and when.  Some of the special events require tickets and will sell out quickly.
