My husband and I chose the Beach House as a special get away for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and it couldn't have been any better! The room was comfortable, the property was beautiful and well maintained with gardens and sculptures. The view from the front porch was fabulous! The staff was friendly and helpful. Loved the little extra's they provided... More

My husband and I just stayed here for a long weekend as our "baby-moon", the weather wasn't great but The Beach House made it much better. The room was very cute and looked just as it does online. The overall Inn was well maintained, the staff was great and the "extras" were awesome. Cookies, coffee, tea, wine, cheese, crackers, really... More

This is a charming place, you really feel like you're on vacations. Location is great, facing the ocean. The afternoon port with cheese as well as the breakfast are a delicious. Room was not as great as the house, but it was great anyway. Will certainly go back.

This was a charming place, but hardly a B&B...the front looks like a house , but there are multiple additions on the rear that add hotel like rooms. The beach across a very busy road (in the summer) is all rocks and seaweed. You can walk to two alternative beachs(one of which dissappears at high tide. The accommodations were clean... More

My husband and I rented a VW bug and drove up the coast from Cape Cod to Kennebunk, Maine. When we arrived at our hotel I was in heaven. Nicest Beach House on a beautifully landscaped property. Hotel looks out over the ocean and view is spectacular. It is located in a quaint beach town with wonderful restaurants and boutiques.... More

Last minute plans were rewarded when rooms opened up for a family stay on the beach. Great way to kick off the holiday weekend. The sea air and sounds dominate. Impressed with the staff's attention and service. Rooms were simple but comfortable. A small problem with the air conditioning was handled swiftly and graciously. Breakfast was simple and good. Mid-day... More

We have delightful two nights at TBH... Across the street from the ocean... Nice walks in the morning... Breakfast, coffee, tea et al throughout the day... Quiet room on 4th floor... Air conditioning was fine on very hot day... Wifi in lobby not in rooms

We had a wonderful visit to The Beach House Inn. It is in a beautiful location right across the street from Gooch's Beach. The inn made a point of anticipating all of our needs (i.e. beach chairs available for borrow) and we felt there were a lot of nice touches along the way. We took them up on the suggestion... More

Comfortable accommodations. Very helpful and friendly staff! Attended a wedding at the Colony and opted to stay at The Beach House as we could stay for just one night (most places make you pay for two nights whether you stay for both or not). It was wonderful. Be sure to get up for breakfast as you will not be disappointed... More

Noisy all night, slept on a deflated air mattress provided by the hotel, no customer service for our inconvenience. Not an experience I would recommend. Planned a nice family trip to New England with the family concluding with a two day visit to Kennebunkport. Booked the Beach House on line after a lot of research including Trip Advisor. Substandard rooms... More
