A Culinary Legacy. An Unforgettable Setting.

Unforgettable Dining
Our contemporary New England cuisine has been rooted in the local and seasonal long before they were the mots du jour on menus across the country. At our AAA Five Diamond, Forbes Five Star restaurant, we showcase incredible ingredients sourced through specially cultivated relationships with the farmers, fishermen and foragers of coastal Maine and just beyond for beautifully-presented, always inspired dishes that encapsulate the very essence of our spectacular setting.

Do Get Your Hands Dirty

My husband and I are happy to get our hands dirty for the sake of renewing the farming culture of Southern Maine. On our four-acre property, Frinklepod Farm, you can spend the day with us to explore our acreage and three greenhouses—we’ll get you out of the city and into the soil.

Eat Debate Over Whoopie Pie Like A Local

You might be surprised to learn that the origin story of whoopie pie, a beloved treat in New England, has been a source of great controversy between Maine and Pennsylvania for nearly a century. If you’re wondering how a dessert could cause such debate, let me stop you right there. Whoopie pie isn’t just any dessert.

Drink Meet Maine’s Most Popular Couple

We have a little secret brewing in Maine. Beyond our buttery lobster rolls, steamy chowders, and pillowy blueberry pancakes, Portland harbors the third-highest concentration of craft breweries in America. Though we’ve been ranked as one of the top 20 beer cities by publications like Travel + Leisure thanks to beer pioneers like Shipyard and Allagash, there’s something we have that those other cities don’t. While you may find craft beers flavored with pecans, bourbon, or even frozen lemonade elsewhere, our taprooms entice small-batch ale connoisseurs with what we know best: sweet and silky maple syrup.

Celebrate Schedule Your Wedding Around Lobster Season

While couples tend to select their wedding date based on the weather, I always joke that they should be factoring in the types of seafood that will be in season during their special day in Kennebunk. Historically a fishing village, Kennebunkport’s location along the Kennebunk River affords locals and visitors first pick of the freshest fare. Sea bass is best savored in the summer months, lobster is absolutely divine in the winter, and shrimp, oysters, and other types of shellfish are a must in the fall. A luxury that White Barn’s Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamonds restaurant delights in often— with a menu refreshed every week to incorporate the freshest fruits of the sea— make sure to ask the concierge to share the area’s boat schedules so that you can take full advantage of Maine’s ocean offerings, fresh out of the water.
