Kennebunkport's 2nd Annual Nott House Reception Was a Great Time
This evening, guests of The Maine Stay Inn and the other Historic Inns joined their innkeepers for a reception and tour of the Kennebunkport Historical Society's Nott House. Entertainment was provided by our local harpist, Emily who shared her heavenly sounds with the group.
Each innkeeper brought their favorite hors d'oeuvres and a package of recipes was given to each guest. At the conclusion of the evening, each of the inns held a drawing and gave away a gift certificate to one of their lucky guests (congratulations Hank and Carole!).
The Nott House is similar to a time capsule. It gives us a glimpse of life as it existed in the mid-1800's when Kennebunkport's shipbuilding industry thrived and made this quaint seaside town one of the wealthiest in New England. The carpets, furnishings and wallpaper are original to the house. They reflect the four generations of the Perkins and Nott families who occupied the home from the late 1700's through to the mid-1900's.
If this sounds like fun, plan to join us next year. Better yet, think about coming to another of our activities that we are holding in the coming weeks.
At The Maine Stay Inn, "we have the nicest guests."
