EXPERIENCE OVERVIEW

Kennebunkport is one of Maine’s most popular vacation destinations. And once you’ve visited, you’ll understand why. This quaint New England coastal town seems right out of a picture-book, with lovely historic homes, scenic lighthouses, preserved evergreen forests, and rocky Atlantic coastline. Just an hour-and-a-half north of Boston, it feels like it could be a world away.

History buffs will appreciate the architecture of the historic buildings here and will love the accommodations we’ve arranged for this trip at the Kennebunkport Captains Collection—a luxury boutique resort made up of four gorgeously appointed homes that once belonged to the daughters of Captain Daniel Walker. The homes feature comfortable, elegantly decorated spaces with private fireplaces in almost every guest room, and are centrally located around Kennebunkport’s river green, within easy walking distance of the lively shops and restaurants at Dock Square.

As a guest, you’ll have access to the gathering spaces in all four of the homes, as well as all of the B&B amenities they offer. Enjoy breakfast in the garden, take an onsite yoga class, play bocce on the green, or just cozy up with a good book in front of the fire. When you’re ready to get out and explore there will be plenty to do.

Peak tourist season runs June-October, but the area has a lot to offer year-round. There’s the popular Kennebunkport Festival in late May/early June, beach fun and water adventure in summer, beautiful fall foliage in autumn, and snowy landscapes in winter.

During your trip, we’ve arranged for you to take a guided group bike tour of Kennebunkport and surrounding locales. It’s a great way to see the sights, learn more about the town, and have fun outside. 

If you visit from mid-April through October—Maine’s whale watching season—you’ll also take a half-day whale watching cruise 20 miles offshore to Jeffrey’s Ledge, a feeding ground for several species of whales. Here you might see humpback whales, minke whales, white-sided dolphins, or even the endangered (and very rare) right whale. With incredible panoramic vistas and up-close sightings of spectacular marine life, this 4.5-hour boat tour in the Western Gulf of Maine is one you won’t soon forget.

You can spend the rest of your vacation bird watching, visiting local antique shops, teeing off on the scenic golf courses located nearby, hiking forest trails (and picking wild blueberries along the way), taking a driving tour of Southern Maine’s iconic lighthouses, or having fun at the beach. 

The beaches in Kennebunkport are less crowded than you might expect, and feature calm, blue water and a mix of rocky shoreline leading to stretches of soft sand. They’re the perfect spot to spend an afternoon in the summer—playing in the water or just soaking up the sun—but also great for a stroll along the water’s edge during the quieter parts of the year. They’re a short walk from the resort homes, and chairs, totes, and beach towels are provided by the hotel for your convenience.

If you’re looking for more adventurous outings, you can try skim boarding, go sailing along the coast in a schooner, kayak the Kennebunk River, or bike part of the Eastern Trail. In winter, you can go cross country skiing along the groomed trails and undisturbed snowscapes of nearby farms.

With its stunning seaside and forest landscape, resort amenities, and historic charm, this New England town is the perfect spot for a romantic getaway during any season.
