Spring’s Arrival

Plants leading up to deck

It’s that time of year again, the show is melting, the flowers are starting to bud, and we are incredibly excited to welcome you all back as restrictions ease and the weather warms. We understand that traveling in this next new normal may still be intimidating so we wanted to remind you of some of the safety measures in place around town and some of the wonderful things you can do outdoors as the sun starts to shine again! 


We have joined with our local business community and joined the Kennebunkport Promise. The majority of businesses in town have pledged to keep our town a safe place to stay and play. We’ve worked hard to ensure social distancing throughout the inn, including our dining room and lobby area. We have hand sanitizer available for you and ensure thorough cleaning inline with CDC guidelines when it comes to everything in the inn.


The great outdoors awaits you in Kennebunkport. From beaches to trails, and walks with beautiful views, we’ve got everything you might need for outdoor entertainment. We recommend starting at the beach! There is nothing better than listening to the waves while reading a book or walking along the shore as you soak up that vitamin D after a long winter.

f you’re more interested in hitting the trails, you can head to the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge, which is just a short car ride away. You can get lost in nature for a little while and see some of the gorgeous sights that Southern Maine has to offer. A personal favorite of ours is the Franciscan Monastery in Kennebunk. You can wander around open fields or through the woods to get to the ocean’s edge. Either way, it’s an absolutely gorgeous place to find some peace in nature. If you prefer to move a little faster, we have a number of bicycle rental shops to choose from and a bike trail running right down the coast.


If you’d rather sit back and relax, a number of our tour boats are reopening for business soon, so you can rest assured in the open air and sail along the sea. See how lobster boats run, have a tour of the coast line from the sea, or get up close and personal with Walker’s Point with guided tours out onto the ocean. 


And after your day is done, and you’ve had your adventure, return to a safe and clean 1802 House Bed and Breakfast. We’ll put the kettle on.
