Item Description

$300 gift certificate to the Maine Stay Inn & Cottages.  Ask any Kennebunkport local where to stay to enjoy the most relaxing and private travel experience in town and the answer will invariably be Maine Stay Inn & Cottages. Since 1946, our romantic bed and breakfast has welcomed guests to Kennebunkport for unforgettable romantic getaways and seaside vacations.

The Maine Stay Inn was built as a private residence circa 1860 by merchant sea captain Melville Walker on land provided to him by his father William H. Walker.

Captain Walker transferred the title to his wife, Abbie, following their marriage. Abbie often traveled with her husband at sea, bringing along their small children. The property then passed to brother-in-law Hiram Fairfield on October 4, 1876, who in turn left it to his wife, Adelaide, (Melville’s sister) and their son Harry.

In 1891, the property passed from the founding family for the first time when Adelaide sold it to the Heuvelman family. The Heuvelmans held the property until 1899. At that time, they sold it to George Little, an executive with the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad.
