Horse-Drawn Wagon and Sleigh Rides in Kennebunkport

Horse-drawn wagon and sleigh rides continue through the winter months here in Kennebunkport.

These wonderful rides are considered by many as a romantic activity as you and your best girl meander through Kennebunkport's Historic District or, ride through the woods imagining what life was like back in a simpler time.

A horse-drawn wagon ride is a fantastic family activity as well. The novelty of the ride, the history shared by Vince, the owner of Rockin' Horse Stables and especially the opportunity to meet the stable of horses will make memories that will span generations.

After your ride, gather around the fireplace in the barn (it's a pretty nice barn) and enjoy a huge mug of Rockin' Horse Stables hot chocolate. The fireplace will warm you on the outside and the hot chocolate and wonderful memories will take care of the rest.

Let us know when you make your reservation at The Maine Stay Inn that you would like to arrange a ride. We'll take care of the rest.

And one other thing, if we get some snow, the sleigh rides are awesome.

Christmas in Kennebunk

After our first snow of the season today, it seemed appropriate to write about one of Kennebunk's first events of the Christmas season.

This Sunday, November 25th, the annual Christmas in Kennebunk is an event not to be missed.

Downtown merchants will offer shoppers extended hours to provide the opportunity to get a head start on your holiday shopping.

Enjoy lunch at one of the downtown restaurants then, later that evening, make your way down Main Street to Rotary Park.

The 24th annual lighting of the Becker Memorial Tree will feature new lighting courtesy of KLPD. The new LED lights are the latest in an effort by the Town to continue to take care of our environment.

Don't miss this warm holiday tradition.

Where's Maine Stay Inn Teddy? ~ Win a Tee Shirt

Maine Stay Inn Teddy is back and, as you can see, he's got a new sweater (good thing, it was pretty chilly out on his photo shoot).

After a busy summer with great weather and lots of wonderful guests, Teddy is back touring the New England area. He's picked some spots that will be somewhat recognizable if you are familiar with the area.

So let's play Where's Maine Stay Inn Teddy.
Here is a recap of the rules:

Respond by posting a comment to this article by clicking on Add a comment at the bottom. All comments are only posted to the blog after I approve them. I will post all incorrect guesses but will hold off posting the first correct guess.

Instead, I'll post a message to the lucky winner asking them to post again (or email me using the CONTACT US button down toward the bottom of the blog in the right column)with their real name and mailing address (and repeat the correct answer) and I'll mail a tee shirt in S, M, L or XL. I will not post your real name and mailing address.The mailing address must be within the USA. Don't forget to identify yourself in some way when you post a guess. It doesn't have to be your real name.

Good luck!

PS. That smile on Teddy's face has been there ever since the Red Sox won the series.

A Girlfriends Getaway to Kennebunkport

A girlfriends getaway to The Maine Stay Inn, located in the quaint seaside village of Kennebunkport, makes a great bachelorette or bride-to-be gift.

We will design a package just for you and your girlfriends which will include a spa treatment for everyone. Each of you have your choice of a 50 minute relax massage, a 50 minute classic facial, a classic manicure and signature pedicure or, exclusively for guests of the Maine Stay Inn, a custom Maine Stay lavender and lemongrass salt scrub.

Select one of The Maine Stay's English Country Cottage Suites (Cottage Suites 4, 5 and 6, or 8 through 11), each of which can accommodate up to 3 or 4 adults. Select two adjoining Cottage Suites and there's room for up to eight of you. Now you have enough for a great party.

You and your girlfriends can sleep late and arise to a scrumptious hot New England breakfast, which we can deliver right to your door in a delightful wicker basket. Revitalize with a relaxing spa treatment. Return to The Maine Stay in time to enjoy afternoon tea and sweets.

Don't forget to leave time for shopping as the Maine Stay is located nearly equidistant from the outlets of Kittery to the south and Freeport to the north.
