We’ve Added Another New Coastal Gem!

Kennebunk Maine Stripers Restaurant Drink And ViewWelcome Breakwater Inn & Spa in Kennebunkport.

At the point where the river spills into the Atlantic Ocean sits a captivating Kennebunkport hotel — The Breakwater Inn & Spa. One of the Port’s oldest inns, our original 1880’s Maine cottage architecture evokes the soothing tranquility of a bygone era — where the allure of a good book or a glass of wine enjoyed in a chair pointed toward the water never goes out of style.

Stripers Waterside Restaurant boasts an enviable location ​overlooking the Kennebunk River. Our locally sourced menu features the freshest Maine seafood, while our location offers beautiful waterfront views.

Fundraising Updates

Recently, students at Solon Elementary School conducted a penny drive in an effort to raise money for the Foundation to Cure Melanoma.

Two fifth graders in Mr. Corson’s class, Abigayle and Brynn, came up with the idea since each had family and friends who are affected by the disease.

They worked with the school nurse to learn more about melanoma (detection and treatment).

In about a two-week period the drive collected $198.60 and donated to the Foundation to Cure Melanoma. This money will help people in Maine be treated, as well as have research conducted to find cures for melanoma.

Thank you so much to Abey and Brynn for your hard work! Also, thank you to Principal Butler, the faculty, staff and all the students of Solon Elementary who made this possible.
