I would like to visit Kennebunkport Maine and stay until I don't want to be there any more.
The Señor says that would happen come the first winter but I'm not so sure.
Kennebunkport is part of a wonderful little area known as The Kennebunks.
The Kennebunks consist of three small towns located in southern York County; Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Arundel.
They are bordered on the southeast by the Atlantic Ocean and the west by the state of New Hampshire.
All three are lovely but Kennebunkport (population 3,474) and its little fishing village of Cape Porpoise hold my heart.
Kennebunkport is every bit as quaint as you might think.
The streets are lined with lush lawns showcasing homes worthy of their own Coastal Living pictorial.
The Lower Village and Dock Square are filled with wonderful speciality shops that can occupy a shopper for hours on end.
The Señor and I stayed in a boutique hotel located in Dock Square; The Boathouse.
(I wish I could take credit for this photo but; alas, The Boathouse gets the credit.)
The Boathouse provides impeccable service. We were never so surprised as when we pulled in to the valet and were told guests are assigned a personal parking space during their stay.
The gentleman pointed out our spot; complete with a personalized sign, and explained it would remain assigned to us throughout our time there.
No calling to have the car brought around.
No searching for a parking spot.
The space was steps from the entrance.
What a way to make a first impression!
The service; as well all as the room, were top-notch all the way.
Should one be so lucky they even offer temporary boat slips for guests who arrive by water.
Their restaurant, David's KPT, offers outside dining and features wonderful dishes local to the region.
We spent some time at Goose Beach and Mother's Beach which are located appropriately on Beach Avenue.
Beaches in Maine are breathtaking and nothing like the deep sandy beaches in Texas or Mexico.
The ground is flat and the sand much more packed. It is also darker in color.
Let me tell you, even in July that water is pretty dang chilly!
Directly across the street from this beach sits some of the most incredible homes I have ever seen. I still have to wonder who lives or "summers" in one of these.
The next stop on this adventure is Cape Porpoise and a quick glimpse of Walker's Point; the summer home of President George HW and Barbara Bush. I hope you'll join me.
