Did You Know that The Franciscan Monastery in Kennebunkport Has Beautiful Grounds for Walking?

Franciscan guest house 
This is an aerial view of the Franciscan Monastery grounds.  From the spring through the fall, there are some easy walking trails that border the Kennebunk River and provide nice scenic views of the river.  Also, the sloping lawns and gardens around the monastery building itself are quite nice for ambling and relaxing.  The monastery is open for services and they have a small gift shop too.  Additionally, the grounds feature several places to sit and meditate.  Here is a picture of the grotto where Kennebunkport's Christmas Prelude's Candle-light Caroling Service is held.  Imagine 2,000 to 3,000 people with lighted candles standing crowded together (for warmth) singing carols.  Many years we have snow on the ground and it is magical!  When you visit the Captain Lord Mansion, we suggest that you borrow bicycles from us and bike over to the Monastery.  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
