The Cape Arundel Inn ~ A Great Place for a Great Celebration

Where do you go to celebrate a momentous occasion? A special occasion deserves the best...that's why, here in Kennebunkport, we gathered at The Cape Arundel Inn. With breath taking views of the Atlantic, superb service, the appetizing menu and creative dishes, this beautiful Kennebunkport restaurant is unsurpassed.

And the Celebration? Our celebration is of life changes, big life changes. As of just a few days ago, Janice and I welcomed Walt and Judi Hauer to Kennebunkport as the new owners and innkeepers of The Maine Stay Inn.

We first met Walt and Judi just a few short months ago when they visited The Maine Stay Inn with their daughter, Johanna. Back then we didn't realize that the Hauers would become the next innkeepers of The Maine Stay; however we did recognize immediately that they would make outstanding innkeepers when they found the right property for them.

While the Hauers speak of their good fortune of being the new innkeepers of this gracious and historic property, Janice and I are delighted that the thousands of guests that we have been priviledged to know, will continue to enjoy the exceptional hospitality and service for which The Maine Stay is so well known.

So you see, our celebration is one of new chapters. A new chapter in the lives of the Hauer family, a new chapter for Janice and me and, a new chapter in the rich history of The Maine Stay Inn which has been welcoming guests to Kennebunkport for more than 62 years.

The summer of 2008 is shaping up to be a great one. Make your reservations early; the Hauers are looking forward to welcoming you to this quaint and magical seaside village and to the beautiful Maine Stay Inn.

With just a short time behind them, the Hauers already agree, at The Maine Stay Inn, "We have the nicest guests!"

Paint The Port in Kennebunkport, Maine

Dennis Rafferty takes a photo opp break.
We saw the finished painting, it was amazing.
Back by popular demand, Paint the Port is one of the best events Kennebunkport has to offer.

Over 60 well-known New England artists will disperse throughout our picturesque community. Each artist will set up his/her easel at the location of their choice and will spend the day capturing the beauty of each scene on canvas.

The public is encouraged to stop and observe the artists at work.

Choose from your favorite paintings and gather that evening, Sunday, June 22nd at The Nonantum, where the paintings will be auctioned off. The $15 admission price not only offers you the opportunity to bid on some wonderful art but, also attend the cocktail party with delicious hors d'oeuvres.

Proceeds of this event benefit both the Kennebunkport Historical Society and The Heartwood College of Art.

The Maine Stay Inn still has availability for that weekend but, call soon as this event is very popular and brings lots of art lovers to Kennebunkport.

In Kennebunkport It's Not March Madness, It's Cookie Madness

This Saturday, March 8th, the streets of Kennebunkport will come alive with guests of The Maine Stay and other Historic Inns anxiously moving from inn to inn sampling each of the inn's Signature Cookies. Cookie Madness is one of our most popular events in Kennebunkport.

The Maine Stay Inn will be offering our Mocha Chip Meringue Bites. This tasty selection will undoubtedly be the favorite (well, at least my favorite). They are delicious but are also very light.

Each inn will also prepare their own special chocolate chip cookie recipe. Guests are invited to taste each and, at the conclusion will be asked to vote for the best chocolate chip cookie.

Beware, other inns may attempt to influence your decision by offering milk or other libations. Don't be fooled, just vote for The Maine Stay's cookies.

We still have availability so give us a call.

Kennebunkport's Maine Stay Inn Publishes a Video Profile

At The Maine Stay Inn, we have just released a video tour of the Inn along with videos taken around Kennebunkport.

The project began last August (as you can tell from the video) and has gone through plenty of review and editing. Now that the writers' strike is over we were able to call it a wrap (just kidding).

Click here and you'll go to the video.

The goal of the video is to share with travelers considering a trip to Kennebunkport an idea of what The Maine Stay Inn and Kennebunkport have to offer. Of course, as those of you who are familiar with this fantastic seaside village know, any attempt to give a view of all that Kennebunkport has to offer, would require an extensive travelogue. Rather, we have tried to give a quick sampling.

One thing the video doesn't tell you, at The Maine Stay Inn, "We have the nicest guests!"
