season, and those who discover this
quieter time are in for a snowy
treat. Deserted beaches offer a
serene setting for a winter walk.
Hillside draped in snow are prime
for sledding. Nearby farms and cross
country centers, like Laudholm Farm
and Harris farm, offer Nordic skiing
and snowshoeing so you can tour the
snow-covered fields and winter woods
before heading inside for a hot
cocoa by the fire.
Dock Square in Kennebunkport is a
postcard setting around the holidays
with festive decorations and a
magical Christmas tree in the
village center. Winter is also a
time for celebration in the
Kennebunks with our world famous
Christmas Prelude event. Christmas
carols at the Franciscan Monastery
and homemade cookies served inside
the shops are all part of the scene,
so is Santa arriving by lobster
boat. February is for Lovers in
Kennebunkport, during this wonderful
winter month the town transforms
into a romantic retreat. Chocolate
festivals and special candlelight
dinners are planned for couples and
honeymooners. Horse drawn sleigh
