The Inn is a lovely old house, with an amazing view on the ocean, but it is in dire need of maintenance to get it up to the standard of the price charged. In our room: the bathrooms are small, that's manageable, but the shelves over the toilet are rickety and threaten to fall at any moment. No shower gel,... More

My husband and I stayed here for his birthday at the end of May. It was absolutely wonderful. We particularly liked the ocean setting. The room we stayed in was very comfortable. The bathroom was small but manageable. The main sitting area on the first floor was just terrific with a lot of comfortable chairs and couches. The internet connection... More

We had a nice trip up the coast to our fabulous inn, the Beach House. The inn is located steps from the Atlantic Ocean. We had a partial ocean view room which was clean and comfortable. The staff at the hotel was very accommodating and kept a bottle of Champagne we had purchased earlier in the day on ice for... More

Just a couple of things to be aware of before you book your room... 1. There are no rocking chairs on the porch...just barstools. 2. The ocean is across the street, and it is a "rocky" beach...no sand. 3. Town is farther away than expected. 4. The room (1st floor) was nice, but WiFi was unreliable. Also, not many TV... More

Great location, very nice rooms, and the staff worked very hard to be accommodating. The only thing that kept me from giving 5 stars was the very average continental breakfast. A Hampton Inn has a better layout. Expected more out of a highly rated B&B. Access to Kennebunkport was easy and having great parking options in a busy tourist spot... More

My husband and I stayed at this 'luxury' inn for three nights. Would not stay again. Did enjoy the breakfasts, cookies, wine and cheese in the afternoon. Housekeeping service for room was good. However, no wifi in rooms, waterpipes bathroom sink made loud noise when turning on faucet, ceiling torn over tub, could not use dresser drawers...the dresser drawers of... More

This is such a nice place, thanks to the perfect location ... however not exploit to its extent at all! Not up to our expectations and the price- performance ratio is completely distorted! For this expensive price, one could expect much more. This place lacks completely of any management. Reception upon arrival is very unprofessional, extremely young, untrained staff, lacking... More

Just stayed here for 4 nights - beautiful location - and lovely common area with great breakfast and afternoon snacks. We used the complimentary bikes and canoes. Smallish rooms, but didn't spend too much time in the room. a bit far from main town area, but very quiet and relaxing and used fire pit outside at night. We had a... More

Gorgeous New England beach House - overlooking the sea, beautiful decor, lovely breakfast. Rooms are mixed in style - we moved to a more modern decorated room, as had no sea view (as booked) - but this was actually a more spacious room. Most staff are lovely, food is fresh and good - free parking and very clean. It would... More

Delightful, friendly small hotel, right on the beach in beautiful Kennebunkport, Maine. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable, if not all that spacious, and we loved the bed! The staff was very friendly. The breakfasts were good, and the afternoon tea (or port and cheese) very welcome. If you want a beach chair, umbrella or towels, they will cheerfully... More
