Stroll through the garden walkways into a magical winter wonderland lit with over 650,000 brilliant colored lights.  We’ll head to the Nonantum Resort, a charming resort in Kennebunkport Maine within walking distance to the shops and restaurants downtown.  The resort is located on a bend in the Kennebunk River, and has been hosting travelers for over 100 years. During the Christmas season, the resort is lavishly decorated and lit, and we’ll have a welcome reception upon our arrival. (D)

 

DAY 2 – After a delicious breakfast, we’ll try our hand at gingerbread house design at our Gingerbread House Competition.  The bakers at the Nonantum Resort will supply the home-made gingerbread houses, frosting and candies to design your own house.  You are free to bring any edible decorations you would like to add to your gingerbread creation.  The chef and hotel staff will judge the competition, prizes will be awarded to the winners, and your gingerbread house is yours to take home.  We’ll head downtown to enjoy lunch (on own), shopping and the Christmas Prelude activities.  Kennebunkport has been voted the # 2 Christmas Town by HGTV, and during Christmas Prelude, there are Christmas Craft Fairs, Tours of White Columns House, an Outdoor Christmas Market, wine tastings, and special sales (additional charge for some activities).  Spend the afternoon shopping at downtown Kennebunkport or take our shuttle back to the hotel.  With the optional “Cookie Crawl” ticket, you can tour some of the beautiful Inns near the hotel (all within walking distance).  Homemade cookies will be handed out at each inn.  The cost of the Cookie crawl is an additional $ 10 per person and the money goes to charity.  We’ll meet the resorts mixologist for a holiday craft cocktail class to sample some holiday cocktails and learn how to make them.  Then, enjoy a delicious lobster dinner at the hotel (other options available).  (B,D)

Enjoy lunch on own downtown before departing Kennebunkport. We’ll travel down the coast and stop at the Stonewall Kitchen Company Store in York before returning to the Cape.  The store features their entire line of specialty foods plus useful kitchen gadgets, cookware, tableware and home décor.
