Just 90 miles north of Boston, there's a glorious little corner of Maine where lobstermen still command the sea, where shop owners greet their visitors like long-lost friends, and where the nostalgia and charm of New England's old-world villages take us back to simpler times.

Welcome to the pristine seaside communities of Kennebunk, Kennebunkport , and Arundel, – also known as the "Kennebunks." Recapture childhood memories of sun-drenched days spent at the beach. Renew your sense of adventure by cruising out of Cape Porpoise on a working lobster boat, fly-fishing on the Mousam River or hitting the many biking and hiking trails in the Kennebunks. Spend a day exploring shops and restaurants. Let our small-town community spirit become part of the fabric of your life – for a day or for a lifetime.

The Kennebunks are enjoyable all year round!

The area hosts many special events throughout the area catering to every budget, age and interest.

In February, many of our local inns offer special Get-Away Couples Packages perfect for romance and relaxation. Restaurants and shops run pomotions and specials throughout the month to celebrate winter in the Kennebunks. We call it February is for Lovers!
