5 Best Things To Do Around Kennebunk This Fall

When the leaves start to turn, Southern Maine becomes an even more charming destination. Thinking about a coastal vacation in autumn? We’ve rounded up the top five things to do in Fall in Kennebunk.

#5 Take a fall foliage bike ride on the Bridle Path
One of the prettiest rides in Kennebunk is less than a mile from our parking lot. Hop on one of our cruisers, take a right at the light and another at the flashing pedestrian sign just before the Mousam River Bridge. The Bridle Path is a flat, well-packed trail under a canopy of fall color with beautiful water views. It ends at the Old House Parts parking lot, where you can turn around and head back or continue on to downtown Kennebunk.

#4 Go apple picking at Spiller Farm in Wells
Family-owned since 1894, Spiller Farm gets our vote for the best place to pick your own apples and experience real Maine. Grab an Apple Cider doughnut while you’re there, and if you’re lucky, some of the last ears of summer corn. Whatever you do, be sure to bring cash (small bills if possible) because the Spiller family doesn’t accept credit cards.

#3 Create a fall scented candle at Sea Love Candles in Dock Square
Take souvenir shopping to the next level by pouring your own natural wax candles! Stacy and Barry Miller have over 100 fragrance oils to choose from, so you can customize your candle however you wish. To make the experience even more festive, Sea Love Candles is BYOB, so grab a bottle of something new from H.B. Provisions or Maine & Vine on your way!

#2 Enjoy a seasonal cocktail or beer on the deck at Batson River Brewing & Distilling
Good times are always on tap at Batson, and with three decks offering the best people watching in Kennebunk, there aren’t many places we’d rather be on a fall afternoon. Be sure to try their seasonal brews while they last!

#1 Gather around our fire pit and enjoy the crisp autumn air
There’s no better way to end a busy day of sightseeing and leaf peeping than kicking back and putting up your feet at our fire pit. Share stories and recommendations with your fellow guests, and keep an eye out for shooting stars as your worries and stress drift away with the smoke. Make your stay even sweeter when you book our best offer of the season!
