Did You Know That Kennebunkport Ranked 9th in The U.S. For Summer Vacations?

The Kennebunks made number 9!

The old-time fishing village of Kennebunkport is like a Currier and Ives print come to life (it's also the summer retreat of choice for George H.W. Bush). You can work on a lobster boat, fly-fish, or kayak past whimsical formations like Blowing Cave and Spouting Rock. Stroll by elaborate Federal and Victorian manses built by sea captains, many now housing inns, or experience history in motion at the Seashore Trolley Museum. Kennebunkport's riverside Dock Square teems with shops and galleries selling stoneware and watercolor seascapes, eco-chic boutiques stocking organic body gels, and of course purveyors of local blueberry jams. Old Orchard Beach features New England's only oceanfront amusement park where you can get your thrills on the Ferris wheel and roller coasters.  Tip: Enjoy live jazz several nights weekly at 95 Ocean, which also offers a great prix fixe pre-theater dinner.

You may actually stay in one of the old sea captain's mansions; the Captain Lord Mansion was built in 1812. It is a luxurious Kennebunport bed and breakfast inn which is open year round. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
