The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming...

...and they're staying at Walker's Point, Kennebunkport, Maine.

There is excitement in the air, as well as the sounds of military helicopters, Coast Guard vessels and the Air Force jets.

President Bush ("W") arrives tomorrow and President Putin arrives on Sunday.

With President Bush celebrating his 61st birthday next week (July 6th), perhaps President Putin will come bearing gifts. (President Putin, if you are looking for gift ideas...get anything cowboy. He'll love it.)

This weekend should be very exciting. I promise to get some pictures to post next week. Better yet, call us at The Maine Stay. We have rooms and you can take your own pictures of this historic event.

Summer in Kennebunkport

Photo courtesy of Robert Dennis
Wow, today was a long day. In fact, today was the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

If you live at the equator you had 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness. At the North Pole you experienced 24 hours of daylight and at the South Pole you had 24 hours of darkness (am I glad I don't live at the South Pole).

This first day of summer is known in the astronomical world as the summer solstice. The summer solstice is when the tilt of the earth with respect to the sun reaches its northern most position. This point on the earth is known as the Tropic of Cancer. This year that event occurred today, June 21, 2007 at approximately 2:11 pm, eastern daylight savings time.

What's the point of all this? It's summertime in Kennebunkport and it's time you started thinking about a great beach vacation.

In Kennebunkport, you will not only enjoy wonderful Maine beaches, you also can enjoy the beauty of the rocky Maine coast. After an enjoyable day taking in the Atlantic Ocean, you can also rest assured that we will make you a reservation at one of Kennebunkport's exceptional restaurants.

Call us at The Maine Stay Inn, we still have summer availability for you and your family.

Don't forget, at The Maine Stay "we have the nicest guests!"

Happy Father's Day From The Maine Stay Inn

Father's Day 2007 was celebrated with perfect weather in Kennebunkport. It was a great day to head out onto the water or, just relax and enjoy a cookout.

Lucky for us, we were able to celebrate the day with our own very special Dad (seen here with a replica of a brick that will be placed in a pemanent tribute to the 2005 World Champion Chicago White Sox).

Our "Major League" Dad's career started in 1942 when, at age 19 he played for the Philadelphia Athletics. In 1949, he retired after playing for the Chicago White Sox.

Kennebunkport Will Be "Putin" On Its Best Face

Kennebunkport may be the new seat of diplomacy. History could be made beginning on July 1, 2007.

President Bush (43) will be hosting Russian President Vladimir Putin in a historic gathering at the Bush Family Compound at Walker's Point in the quaint, New England seaside village of Kennebunkport, Maine.

The relationship between Presidents Bush and Putin has grown increasingly strained. Harsh rhetoric has been exchanged by each side.

Hopefully this gathering will offer an opportunity to mend relations. A trip out on President Bush's (41) fishing boat and a taste of a Kennebunkport lobster and any animosity between Bush and Putin will melt faster than the butter in which they will dip their lobsters.

From all of us at The Maine Stay Inn, to Presidents Bush and Putin, "Nostrovia!"

Golf in Kennebunkport

Another great reason to spend you vacation in Kennebunkport. Actually, three great reasons. The golf courses of Kennebunkport offer challenges and great scenery.

Your choices:

Cape Arundel Golf Club, located in Kennebunkport, on the shores of the tidal Kennebunk River is known for its beauty. This "links" style golf course has rolling hills and small greens and plenty of water. This is a challenge to all. If you cross paths with the President, please let him play through.

Dutch Elm Golf Course is located in Arundel and is one of southern Maine's best. With 18 holes of championship golf, this course offers interesting challenges and terrific scenery.

Webhannet Golf Course was first established more than 100 years ago as a nine hole golf course. at a time when Kennebunk Beach was being developed as a summer destination. The course was lenghtened to its current 18 holes in 1925 and features wide fairways, several bunkers and water hazards as well as spacious greens.

As part of the concierge services of The Maine Stay Inn we would be delighted to arrange for your tee times.

Kennebunkport Celebrates Art in the Inns

Kennebunkport is bustling with art this weekend. Artists are displaying their works in several of Kennebunkport finest inns and bed & breakfasts. If you are interested you can purchase tickets from any of the participating inns for $5.00 which entitles you to visit all of the display locations.

At The Maine Stay Inn, we are fortunate to have the works of the award winning artist, Joan Cope Sutter on display. Joan's works are bringing the walls of The Maine Stay Inn to life with wonderful seascapes and local Kennebunkport scenes.

Joan began her art career as a sculptor in 1980. She took a 20 year hiatus from art and became an innkeeper during which time she painted beautiful murals on the walls of her inn. Joan returned to art just 7 years ago but chose painting as her medium. Joan now works with both oils and watercolors.

If you're staying in Kennebunkport this weekend, we hope you will stop by The Maine Stay Inn and enjoy Joan's works. Bring your checkbook, her paintings are fantastic.

And, don't forget, at The Maine Stay Inn, "we have the nicest guests."
