Dime for Time Campaign
Each year, between January 1 – October 31, we pledge five dimes per guest visit to benefit breast cancer research and to support breast cancer survivors.  Between 2010 and 2015 we raised $18,000 for cancer research and together with our “Breast Cancer Survivor Weekend” we have contributed over $75,000 in cash, rooms and other support to the effort.


Cancer Survivors Enjoy Free Weekend in Kennebunkport
It’s not exactly tourist season around Maine the weekend after Thanksgiving, but there is at least one inn that is filled to capacity that weekend. Each year on that Sunday & Monday, the Captain Lord Mansion in Kennebunkport gives all of its 16 rooms to breast cancer survivors and their loved ones. They are our guests for a complimentary 2-night getaway that includes breakfast, an afternoon reception, chair massages as well as other surprises and gifts.  If you know someone that deserves this escape, please contact the innkeepers to nominate that person.
