In June 2003 my sister and I were talking about meeting somewhere for a July 4th get together. The first thing that came to my mind... lobster. From lobster we found our way to The Green Heron Inn. We were so thrilled and charmed by everything we decided to make it tradition. This was our fifth year with DAN and TONY and we can't wait for our sixth. We see many of the same faces each year and everyone really makes it feel like home (Tony and Dan are like your favorite uncles!). Be sure to take loose fitting clothes...you will need them by the time you leave. Between the breakfast deliciousness (cross your fingers they serve the crab benedict) and addictive afternoon treats at TGH, nearby offerings of whoopie pie, lobsters and blueberries prepared every way imaginable you will need the extra room. From Kennebunkport you can easily take small day trips for the perfect lobster experience overlooking the waters and dining on picnic tables, gigantic LL Bean store (archery, skeet shooting, canoing, fly fishing available) and the Lindt chocolate outlet (again loose fitting clothes), spend a fun day in Portland, or venture into New Hampshire. OF COURSE hanging around there renting bikes, sitting in adirondack chairs, strolling the town, and enjoying the sounds of the ocean with your toes in the sand is the best part of all! Even though my sister and I live in different states, we always know that no matter what we will see each other every 4th of July at The Green Heron with Dan & Tony!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Edgewater Inn, formerly known as The Green Heron Inn one of Kennebunkport's historic Inns, is located on Ocean Avenue, in one of the town's most charming neighborhoods. It sits adjacent to an estuarine cove, near the mouth of the Kennebunk river and just around the bend from President George Bush's vacation home on Walkers Point. Overnight stays include a 3-course breakfast, prepared by Chef Jason Grant in the "on the edge" restaurant from eight to noon.The Inn was built in the early 1900's as a boarding house that provided shelter and breakfast for weary travelers. Twelve guest rooms including a cove side cottage, thirty-two seat restaurant. Its location, which combines the beautiful surrounding of the Kennebunk River and the convenience of its proximity to all major Kennebunkport attractions, contributed to its popularity from its early days. That tradition continues today. While relaxation at The Edgewater Inn is an art in itself, activities abound in the surrounding area. Guests enjoy rejuvenating walks along the rocky shore, enjoy the sun on the sandy beach, explore the numerous galleries and shops in Dock Square, watch the wildlife and the birds as they gather near the water next to the inn, or spend a sunny day on one of the nearby golf courses. ... more less
