What is The Kennebunkport "Fine Living Festival" and When Is It Scheduled?

Fine Living Festival 1

The 6th Annual Arts in the Inns Festival is scheduled for June 2 - 6, 2010 and it has been renamed The Kennebunkport Fine Living Festival!

For five days in June, chefs, artists, and wine makers from around the country will come together in Kennebunkport, Maine to celebrate and share their passions.  We'd like to invite you to join us as we celebrate a pairing of palates and palettes in our coastal village.  The 2010 Festival will feature chef/artists dinners in private homes, the Twilight Soiree, Artists in Residence at local inns, the Grand Tasting and many other culinary and fine art events.  If you enjoy fine food, fine wine, fine art and fine living, please join us this June in Kennebunkport.  Call today for Captain Lord Mansion or Captain's Garden House reservations for that weekend. Our toll-free number is 800-522-3141.  Our artist in residence will be the well-known and highly-regarded Don Stone.  He shows his work at Mast Cove Gallerywhich is located only three short blocks from the Mansion. You'll have a chance to view his work at the  inn; as well as having a chance to meet Don and his wife at breakfast. We look forward to having you with us this year!  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

When Is Maine Restaurant Week?

Lobster_dinner

Maine Restaurant Week is Monday, March 1 through Wednesday, March 10 

This is the second year for the statewide event, offering all of us an affordable and fun reason to explore new restaurants and visit old favorites during March, traditionally one of the quietest months of the year for Maine restaurants.

Participating restaurants will once again showcase their signature dishes on specially priced, prix fixe menus. For 2010, restaurants will serve three-course meals priced at 20.10, 30.10 or 40.10. Also some restaurants are serving $15.10 lunches.

A broad range of Maine's finest restaurants have committed to the second annual Maine Restaurant Week. Total participation is about 35% more  than in 2009.  Another addition this year: select inns, hotels and B&Bs will be offering special lodging rates (a great excuse to visit a distant restaurant and take a mini-vacation).  The Captain Lord Mansion is offering 3 nights for the price of 2.  This package is avialable all month.

Get in on the delicious fun of Restaurant Week. Start now by taking a few minutes to discover participating restaurants and their menus, lodging partners, and special event information.

Also we invite you to join our email group. You'll receive only useful information like Restaurant Week news and special restaurant and bar offers. Your email address will never be shared.

Where Can You Find and Experience Bathroom Remodeling Ideas?

Champion-bath   
The answer to that question is Kennebunkport, Maine and specifically, the Captain Lord Mansion. If you are thinking of remodeling your bathroom at home, Bev and I suggest you reserve one of our guest rooms at the Captain Lord Mansion to experience specific remodeling ideas in action.  We have guest rooms with heated marble or tile floors; yummy!  Also, there are baths with the latest in air-jetted tubs, much more sanitary and less work to clean than the old style water-jet tubs.  Additionally, we have rooms that have double shower heads, hydro-therapy body jets and one room (Hesper) that has a terrific 6-jet wall system.  Our office staff has experienced all these units and are pleased to share with you their feelings about any of our special bath features. The bath pictured above  is located in the Champion Room; it has an Italian tile fountain, Roman style air-jet double tub and double vanities.  It is the ultimate in luxury!  You can watch the Home and Garden Channel, the Do It Yourself Channel or you can experience bath remodel ideas first-hand at the Mansion!  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
