Stayed here for two nights and I echo fellow reviewers who said the only bad thing was having to leave. My room was comfortable, I enjoyed walking to the beach each morning, the complimentary bikes were useful for a quick jaunt into town, the staff was welcoming, and the breakfast buffet was simple, wholesome and delicious. The wine and cheese... More

I stayed here with my friend during our roadtrip through New England. We absolutely loved this place. It was right on the water and a short drive or bike ride to Kennebunkport and a swimming beach. Very quaint, but a good option to a B&B as you have your own bathroom in your room. The staff were extremely helpful and... More

This is my second summer spending the weekend at The Beach House Inn and my boyfriend and I decided we wouldn't stay anywhere else. We arrived on a Saturday night just in team for the wine, cheese and a sunset on the porch ! When I had made the reservation the confirmation letter suggested to make a reservation at Stripers...

We made the voyage up to Maine in the search of a great lobster dinner. We came with no reservations and no plans. Using the Hotel Tonight app we found The Beach House listed. We booked the room at what seems to be a very appropriate rate. When we had a delayed flight and had the thought we would not... More

It was a very crowded Saturday the last weekend in June, but we found a lovely room at the Beach House. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch having cheese and port wine at 5:00 pm, provided by the staff.

My wife and I decided to take my sister on a surprise night away in the Kennebunkport area because its one of those places that's pretty close to perfect. We went June 7th for one night. We decided on the Beach House Inn and we were pleasantly surprised how nice the inn is! The outside is fine but the interior... More

We are repeat customers. Our third time. Love the place. Love room 201 and the common areas are wonderful with their panoramic views of the rocky coast and the nearness to the sounds and views of the ocean. Unbeatable. 24 hour coffee and tea, cookies in the afternoon and brandy and port and cheese from 4:30 to 6:00 pm. Truly... More

My first stay at the beach house was wonderful. It was like being at home. The room was clean along with the bathroom. I had the best sleep. The common space with the ocean views was amazing and inviting. Everything from the inside and out was well maintained. I would go back

A group of us stayed at the Beach House Memorial Day weekend. We normally stay at the White Barn Inn(perfection) in the winter but decided to try something more casual and near the beach for our Summer kick off. It was delightful. The sitting area is lovely with a fireplace and gorgeous views of the beach across the street. We... More

We have stayed at the Beach House several times in the past - and it never disappoints. The rooms are lovely and if you are fortunate enough to reserve a room with the ocean view - it doesn't get any better. The common space is lovely and in the winter the fireplace makes everything homey. We rented 'the cottage' which... More
