Kennebunkport a great end of summer retreat. The crowds that were there prior are gone and the town is yours. From Maine Lobsters to day drinking your way around town to visiting the countless lighthouses dotting the coast, Maine is a destination to make yours.

–Day 1–

Checking into your own quaint 200+ sq ft Cabot Cove Cottage starts your trip perfectly. Hop in your car or walk the .7 miles to Hurricanes at Dock Square for a 4pm Martini.

At about 6:30pm/ 7pm head over to David’s KPT for a quick appetizer/ dinner.

End the night with a sugar rimmed Shipyard Pumpkinhead at Federal Jack’s (you could/ should do this every night 😉

–Day 2–

Drive through to Wells Maine and stop at the Travel Channel favorite Maine Diner. It’s 12pm east coast time and 9 am Pacific so breakfast is best.

With your stomach full head back to the cottage for a quick writing, email, work session or nap before heading over to the Ramp at about 3pm for a quick bite/ drink. The views around Cape Porpoise are classic Maine with boats bobbing in the water with names like “Two Keepahs” and a light house in the distance. The Ramp is a cozy bar, saddle up and just look around. Make reservations for the night at One Dock.

At One Dock later in the evening (dress business casual, its just more comfortable) order up Gordon Ramsay’s favorite dish: Lobster Fettuccine.

–Day 3–

By now if you have met anyone visiting or from Kennebunkport they have probably mentioned Earth. Make a reservation and take what you can get time wise…if the bar is open when you arrive take, grab the seats (if the only reservation you could get was 5:30pm). Enjoy!

–Day 4–

You know the area…grab lunch at Arundels before driving north on highway 1 or driving south to Ogunquit.

Enjoy!
