Kennebunkport Hotels Celebrate Love for All with Maine Marital Bliss Package

Wednesday Nov 14, 2012

KENNEBUNKPORT, ME - To commemorate Maine's legalization of gay marriage, couples are invited to tie the knot while enjoying an intimate weekend getaway at one of three of Kennebunkport's leading boutique hotels.

With the Maine Marital Bliss package, the experienced wedding planners of the Kennebunkport Resort Collection - including the Kennebunkport Inn, the Grand Hotel and Old Fort Inn & Resort - will handle all details, allowing couples ample time to relax and enjoy the start of the newest chapter of their lives together in this picturesque seaside destination.

The two-night Maine Marital Bliss package includes all the wedding necessities for the ceremony and celebration: an officiate and witness for the ceremony, the marriage certificate, flowers, and one hour photography with proofs and prints.

The two-night package also features a bottle of champagne, a four course dinner for two at One Dock at the Kennebunkport Inn, and wedding cake for two. And to relax before or pamper after the service, couples can enjoy two Swedish massages at the Cottage Breeze Day Spa along with a horse and carriage ride for two around town and 20% off purchases at Spaces Kennebunkport, a design and home store.

The Kennebunkport Inn, a local landmark on Kennebunkport's Dock Square, is offering the package in a Mansion room with a king bed. The package is also available in a Grand room with a king bed at The Grand Hotel, the first new-build hotel in Lower Village Kennebunk in more than 50 years; and a King Classic Suite at the tranquil Old Fort Inn & Resort, located just minutes from downtown Kennebunkport. Daily breakfast is included at each property. Prices for the two-night package start at $2,100.

The experienced wedding planners of the Kennebunkport Resort Collection - including the Kennebunkport Inn, the Grand Hotel and Old Fort Inn & Resort - will handle all details.

The Kennebunkport Inn recently unveiled an extensive renovation of its public spaces, including local restaurant favorite, One Dock, to create vibrant new social areas that retain the 1899 Inn's historic charm while infusing it with a modern, more contemporary flair.

Couples can take advantage of the Inn's prime location in the heart of Kennebunkport and visit the town's many shops and galleries or spend the afternoon together in front of the outdoor fireplace on the Inn's spacious sundeck overlooking the Kennebunk River. At day's end, couples can visit One Dock to enjoy a seasonal menu with small plates featuring Maine's abundance of fresh local seafood and produce.

The Grand Hotel, located just a short hop from the Inn, is a commanding new structure set atop Chase Hill that marries classic New England shingle-style architecture with low-key Southern Maine ambience. Thoughtfully designed with generous windows and a wide array of both private balconies and public decks, the Grand's 17 rooms offer couples a front row seat to sweeping views of the Kennebunk River and downtown Kennebunkport.

Steps away from the stunning Maine Atlantic coastline and a short drive to Kennebunkport's downtown Dock Square, the Old Fort Inn & Resort offers couples a tranquil setting and accommodating New England inn hospitality. Tucked away on 15 gorgeous wooded acres, the Old Fort Inn & Resort allows guests to relax in a setting of casual elegance or take advantage of its many outdoor offerings.

For reservations and additional information on the Kennebunkport Inn, the Grand, and the Old Fort Inn, please visit, call (800) 248-2621 for the Kennebunkport Inn, (877) 455-1501 for the Grand, or (800) 828-3678 for the Old Fort Inn.

All three properties are owned and managed by the Kennebunkport Resort Collection, which also represents diverse luxury and upscale properties such as Hidden Pond, one of the finest luxury boutique hotels in the Northeast; The Tides Beach Club, Southern Maine's only beachfront luxury boutique hotel and the Cottages at Cabot Cove, featuring individually designed luxury cottages. KRC also owns and manages restaurants and catering venues in the area.

    This has nothing to do with the article, nothing to do with love on my part, I feel more like Sacha Guitry, I love them but don’t trust them (women I mean) I’m hetero but what I mean to say here is important too, three state by referendum, or vote declared they accepted Same Sex Marriage, THIS WAS A FIRST IN THE WORLD. I guess the French have been so impressed (socialists) they decided to have it too, they’ve had demonstrations by all of these religiously involved even Buddhists, so far their arguments is like prop8 (remember?) when they claim 20,000 the police claims 5, or 10,000 demonstrators and since the pigs told me how they counted them I’d rather trust them. I’m also sure Olson and boies will eradicate DOMA.
