Need A Getaway?

Me too. Which is why I am finally heading away for a long weekend in Arizona.  But if you live in New England and can’t swing a flight right now how about a weekend away in Maine?  I know, it’s cold in Maine in March, but the cold is SO much better when you embrace it with fires, hot chocolate, wine, long dinners and snuggles!  The Inn at English Meadows in Kennebunkport has been a long-time EOS sponsor and a place I personally love to visit. Eric and Liz, the NYC transplant innkeepers are the NICEST people and really go out of their way to make your stay special and comfy.

So, for the month of March if you mention EOS when you book you’ll get 20% off your stay!

Need more of a reason for a romantic little getaway? Here are two offers coming up:

March 8th– A relaxing day spa day at The White Barn. – Start this deliciously decadent day with a glass of bubbly Champagne and canapés and then change into your spa robe and slippers as you unwind before your luxurious day ahead. Throughout the day we will be offering massages and reflexology hand treatments, as well as high tea in our living room. Featured partners include B. Kamins, Molton Brown, Airelle and La Bella Donna. Be sure not to miss out on this exclusive event. Must be booked thru English Meadows. 11am to 4pm.
$45pp. Includes two 20 minute treatments,  complimentary samples to take home and a chance to win a Moroccan Oil basket worth $350

Some other of my personal faves in the area if you go:


Abbondante: A new space for great Italian.

50 Local: Fun vibe, good food, great drinks.

Earth at Hidden Pond: Amazing design, Ken Orringer’s Maine outpost.

The White Barn Inn: Fancy, fabulous and a total classic. A must for a special occasion.

Old Vines Wine Bar & Tapas: Walking distance from the Inn, a GREAT spot for pre-dinner snacks and sips.

Tides Beach Club– Hip decor and yummy food (the chowder was delish!) Check out the lucite bar stools (I die)


Goose Rocks Beach: On a mild day a walk on this beach is incredibly peaceful and soothing. And is dog friendly during certain times!

Snug Harbor Farm: My favorite! Mini horses, amazing gifts, gardening things and in the spring, plants!

Drive Ocean Avenue: Amazing scenery, the ocean and fancy homes (including former President Bush’s compound).

Wells Reserve at Laudholm: Hiking, cross country skiing or snowshoeing.

Daytrip Society: Awesome shop for gifts.

He’s the inn’s dog and SO FREAKING AWESOME. I try to fit him in our car and steal him whenever we go. :)
