Overlooking The Gulf Of Maine, This Picturesque Chapel Is A Peaceful Place For Fresh Air

There are lots of beautiful small towns hidden throughout Maine, but a few stand out as well-known. One of the best known is little Kennebunkport. The town, while small, is one of the most visited in the state and if you’re there on a beautiful summer day you’re likely to be surrounded by people. That’s when you need to find places that provide a respite from the hustle-and-bustle. Places like this little chapel!

St. Ann’s By-the-Sea Episcopal Church is open to visitors from Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to sunset, unless there’s a special event. On Sunday the grounds are open to visitors from the time the weekly service ends to sunset. This weekly service takes place from mid-June through Labor Day at the Seaside Chapel at 8 a.m. If it rains the service takes place inside the Stone Chapel. You can learn more about the chapel by visiting their website or following them on Facebook. Remember that this is a place of worship, so always be respectful when visiting. Do not climb on structures or use them as picnic areas. The chapel can be reached on 207-967-8043.

While you’re considering a visit to this beautiful spot, you might as well plan a full trip to Kennebunkport, one of Maine’s most charming historic towns.
