February in the Kennebunks – Locals and Lovers Paint the Town Red
What could be more romantic and relaxing than escaping for a weekend away, brisk beach walks, drives along Ocean Ave capturing photos of the breaking waves at Walkers Point, and an overnight retreat. Enjoy gourmet food, quiet times and the warmth of a romantic fire at a cozy inn or Bed and Breakfast like the Captain Fairfield Inn. Located on the beach, The Seaside Inn even has a warm bubbly outdoor hot tub, open year round with a view of the ocean for their guests. The Rhumb Line Resort has an indoor pool and hot tub, plus an outdoor hot tub, a special treat when surrounded by snow. The Breakwater Inn and The Boathouse Waterfront Hotel offer dining and spa packages with river views.
Special events during the month of February in Kennebunkport include private dining in Igloos at Stripers, or Love Shacks at Boathouse, horse drawn carriage rides through Dock Square, romantic candlelight dinner specials, and romance packages at inns with Champagne, chocolates and roses delivered to your room upon request. Spa treatments are available too – in your room or at one of the local Kennebunkport Spas.
Art galleries, shops and boutiques throughout Kennebunkport and Kennebunk “Paint the Town Red” with red hearts and twinkling red and white light decor to welcome couples. Have cocktails in a Ski Gondola at Kennebunkport Inn, tequila tasting at Pedros, or Batson River Brewing’s latest elixir, wine tastings and open houses at local galleries are on-going throughout the month.
In the “Paint the Port Red” spirit, shops offer “red tag” specials and participating Kennebunkport and Kennebunk restaurants feature lunch and dinner specials.
From the decorations to the off-season deals at Kport’s waterfront lodging properties, and warm hospitality everywhere in town, it’s easy to see why Kennebunkport Maine is one of the most romantic seaside destinations in Maine, and New England, and the world. Besides beach walks, there is ice skating, sledding and cross country skiing for romantic outdoor adventure in the Kennebunks in winter.
