The 2017 countdown to summer has begun! The Kennebunks have had a taste of summer already with some of our Spring days having reached temperatures in the 80’s and 90’s! When we have a Spring like that, we know it is time to pull out the beach gear and dust off last year’s sand. At The Inn at English Meadows, that is exactly what we’ve done! Did you know that when you stay with us, all you need to pack is your swimsuit and your favorite sunscreen? We can supply you with beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrellas, a beach parking pass and beach directions! All you have to do is decide which beach you want to explore and what form of transportation you will take.
B.E.A.C.H. – Best Escape Anyone Can Have.
We’ve got a few to choose from, which would you like to explore? To name some: Kennebunk Beach (there’s one in Kennebunk and Kennebunkport), Gooches Beach, Mother’s Beach and Parsons Beach. Not bad for a small coastal town! If you do not find that special seashell, starfish or sand dollar, don’t fret – step into one of our shops and find the perfect keepsake to remember your beach days with us.
Kennebunk and Kennebunkport have scooters, bicycles, and kayaks for rent and they are all within walking distance from our Inn. Scooters: Harbor Village Scooters, Coastal Maine Scooter. Bicycles and Kayaks: Coastal Maine Kayak
The Kennebunks are bike and foot friendly New England Seacoast towns. We are aware of the beauty that surrounds us and sometimes you miss taking it all in when breezing by in a car, so go ahead and take your time. Our historic homes, quaint boutiques, and shops, rocky and beach-laden shorelines await you!
Let’s get our summer clothes out, dig down and find those flip flops and plan your beach getaway with us at The Inn at English Meadows.
Your 2017 summer, New England Seacoast adventure is waiting for you…
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.
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.
