The Seaside Inn popped up while planning for a short-notice, weekend trip. We liked its unique historical backstory, ocean access and top TripAdvisor reviews. It has an unassuming exterior that fits the natural surroundings and quiet residential area. One can loll on the beach or literally walk for miles along the ocean’s edge. The pretty little town of Kennebunkport is... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Seaside. It seems that you found the inn to be just as we are trying to keep it. The Seaside is very quiet and after 9pm you usually don't hear a noise. The location can't be beat and with the staff that has been with us for a min 12... More

After a 12 hour trip to Boston we had to drive to Kennebunk hungry and tired. I asked if they had room service and there answer was " we don't have a kichen or room service" . We also had to carry our bags to the second floor which was such a pain. They serve breakfast every morning it just... More

Been coming here for years. Location. Location. Location. Even in the dead of winter with icicles dripping outside the window...you know the ocean is right there. Once you make your reservation....the rest is easy and a rest is what you get. Love the choices at breakfast. As comfy as a new old shoe!

We love this spot with second floor rooms overlooking the beach! Any time of year is fine with several walks on the beach each day. Breakfast comes with each room and there are great off season specials. You can walk into Kennebunkport where there are several very good restaurants, and there is a wonderful drive along and around Walker point... More

We come to the Seaside every spring for our anniversary, and have just had another lovely four night stay. As always, the location is stunningly beautiful, with sea views that go on forever. Our room was immaculate, comfortable and looked to have some fresh updates. The staff is superb....caring, accommodating, knowledgeable, but never obtrusive. (They will clean room your room... More

It took my breath away when we pulled in to the drive, the setting is amazing. This is a classic seaside inn, the rooms are huge and spotless, two queen beds seating area and extra sink. We had a first floor Ocean View room that was perfect. I had my grandson and they don't allow children under 13 on the... More

It is always nice to have a guest want to return again. We tend not to look at the view as we are working but every once in a while we take a minute to look out the deck and the view gets us every time. Because of local ordinance we are not allowed to have cooking in the rooms.... More

Lovely inn with great staff and amazing views of the ocean. We got engaged on the beach at the Seaside and it was perfect. The staff was great and so helpful when recommending a restaurant to celebrate our engagement. Even in the off-season, it was a great weekend getaway.

Ocean view.......wonderful breakfast(muffins were amazing) historic and a skip to the gorgeous beach! Staff was friendly. Fridge in the room. Quiet neighborhood.The only draw back was thin walls dealing with neighbors.

I stay here every summer with my family, for my whole life, and I have never had a bad experience yet! The long strip of beach, that you can walk right out to in less than 2 minutes from your room, is one of the most beautiful on all of the New England coast. After a storm, you can find... More
