Maple Sugar Saturday in Kennebunkport

Frank and his Dad demonstrate the way sap was
carried before the modern conveniences of today.
Maple Syrup Saturday is the 4th Saturday of March every year. With the cooperation of Mother Nature the sap begins to flow in our Maine Maple trees like clockwork.

Those same Maples that make autumn in Maine a very special place to visit, create a different magic in late March.

Join us this weekend. Saturday morning March 24th, arise to a delicious Maine Stay Inn, New England breakfast. Then, dress warm (or warmly??? I don't know) and it's off to Giles Farm for a tour of how Maple Syrup is made. A little history of the business, some history of the property (it is the site of Maine's first Shaker settlement) and a thorough description of the process.

There will be Maple treats to sample and after this fascinating tour of the Sugar House, it's a short stroll to the dining hall of the Brothers of Christian Instruction for a soup and sandwich lunch topped off with Maple Apple Brown Betty with ice cream.

All of this is complimentary to guests of The Maine Stay Inn. Call today, we still have some of our romantic rooms available.
