Changes Afoot in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport

There are changes afoot in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport, Maine.

We’ve been keenly interested in changes happening around Kennebunkport and Kennebunk lately. We’ve been watching the progress on The Grand, a new hotel being built in Kennebunk’s Lower Village. We’re told The Grand will also have retail space, and we’re excited to see what new shops fill it. The Grand is scheduled to open this spring, and it seems like it will open on time.

Coming soon to Kennebunk's Lower Village: The Grand.

Another big change in Kennebunkport is The Landing. It’s gone. A new restaurant and inn, Portwatch, is going to be built in its place. Portwatch is owned and operated by the folks who run the Cape Arundel Inn, a place known for its amazing dinners. We’re already looking forward to our first meal at Portwatch!

Our Kennebunk/Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast has been hopping lately. Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to slip away for a little romance, and since it was closely followed by Presidents Day Weekend, many couples enjoyed several days here. It was fun to surprise some guests with Jacques Torre Chocolates and bouquets of flowers. Often it’s men who treat ladies to such treats, but this year, one lovely lady showered her Valentine with champagne, chocolates. and rose petals. Such fun.

In Kennebunkport, The Landing is gone. Portwatch will replace it.
