Life With The Libbys | Our Mini Moon in Kennebunkport, Maine


When you're planning your wedding one of the things to check off your list is a honeymoon destination. But if you're getting in married in Maine, why would you want to leave? Not only is it the most beautiful time of year in Maine but the idea of sitting in a car, airport, and packing right after our big wedding weekend was unappealing to me. I loved the idea of staying close to home so we could still getaway and relax but just be a quick drive to and from.

We have so many incredible destinations here in Maine that we hardly get to take advantage of. The one thing my mini-moon taught me is that we definitely need to take more staycations!

We opted to spend our mini-moon with the Kennebunkport Resort Collection. KRC is a group of luxury & boutique hotels, resorts, and restaurants.

We started our stay with two nights at the Yachtsman Hotel & Marina Club. Just a short walk to dock square, waterfront rooms, and a floating pool!

The next day we enjoyed beach & dinner at Tides Beach Club located right on Goose Rocks Beach. My favorite thing to do at Tide's is to enjoy a cocktail or two on the porch before dinner. My go-to drink is their Siren's Call, it's delicious!

After our two night stay at The Yachtsman we decided to change our scenery and head over to Hidden Pond for our last two nights. We stayed in a beautiful two bedroom cottage with a relaxing screen porch and cozy fireplace. Hidden Pond defines luxury "glamping" at it's best. When visiting Hidden Pond you MUST dine at their incredible restaurant Earth. We highly recommend their Wood Fired Wednesday lunches, cocktails at the farm bar by the pool, and donuts by the fire after dinner. And to top off your trip, make sure to take a visit to their Tree Spa.
