KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine, April 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Just as summer travel plans begin to make a comeback, The Boathouse Waterfront Hotel and Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative (MLMC) have partnered to create the ultimate Maine lobster experience with the launch of The Maine Lobster Suite, the "sweetest suite" inspired by the sweetest lobster on earth. Featuring over-the-top lobster-themed decor, the suite is the first of its kind oasis for lobster lovers everywhere, and the specially curated hotel package features extraordinary experiences sure to satiate those craving a lobster-filled getaway after many months at home.
Plus, for those looking to take home more than a just weekend of lobster-packed memories, we're sweetening the deal with a complimentary supply of our favorite seafood. Guests who book the package on the first weekend of every month (June - October) will receive a supply of Maine lobster delivered to their doorstep, courtesy of MLMC. Full details here.
The rewards don't stop there. All guests who book the stay experience, regardless of the timing, will be entered into a raffle to also win a hand-delivered supply of Maine lobster, courtesy of the MLMC. Guests will have the opportunity to experience these unique offerings from May 26 - October 3, 2021.
"Developing a partnership with the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative has been the perfect opportunity to celebrate a cornerstone of Maine's heritage while also bringing attention to the important role sustainability plays in our state's lobster legacy," said Justin Grimes, Managing Director of the Kennebunkport Resort Collection. "We strive to offer our guests experiences that are unique and memorable, and by transforming a guest room into an educational and immersive experience, we're offering so much more than just a 'taste' of what Maine has to offer."
"Many Maine visitors don't realize that peak lobster season runs from roughly June to October here in Maine, so we wanted to create something special to celebrate the sweetest, most sustainable lobster all season long at the first-ever Maine Lobster Suite," said Marianne LaCroix, Executive Director of the Maine Lobster Marketing Collaborative. "As the state begins to welcome tourists, we're excited to treat select guests to lobster deliveries after their stay at The Boathouse Waterfront Hotel and we hope they'll learn a little more about our historic industry throughout their time in Maine."
The Lobster Suite Located in Dock Square in the heart of Kennebunkport, the Maine Lobster Suite at the Boathouse Waterfront Hotel sits right on the Kennebunk River, a short walk away from the rows of working marinas and part of the Kennebunk Lobster Roll Trail, where guests can eat their way through 18 diverse and delicious lobster rolls at local eateries.
Situated in a waterfront corner room, the Maine Lobster Suite boasts a king-sized bed and modern bathroom, a sitting area, and two riverfront balconies overlooking the Kennebunk River and Dock Square. Look closely and you might catch a local fisherman pulling into the dock with his daily haul of lobster, fresh-caught from the cold, crisp Maine waters.
Inside the room, guests will discover lobster-themed surprises around every corner, as paintings from local artists adorn the walls and lobster pillows furnish the bed. Rustic coastal motifs are found throughout, including real gear like buoy scones, custom-built lobster trap rocking chairs and end tables, and even Grundens fishing bibs for those who want to dress the part.
