From the moment you arrive, the small family-run inn lulls you into a relaxed pace. The home-cooked breakfasts on the veranda are culinary delights, the adirondack chairs along the tidal estuary invite you to sit and read, and the well-appointed rooms lull you into a very comfortable state of mind. The hosts are sources of advice about local restaurants, bike... More

The cottage at Bufflehead Cove Inn is a secret we shouldn't really share. Nestled in the trees on the banks of the creek it is hard to believe this quiet peaceful setting is just moments away from the busy hustle of Kennebunkport in Summer. Beautiful breakfasts on the veranda served by our delightful hosts. Thank you - We hope to... More

I really enjoyed my stay for a long weekend getaway. The owners are wonderful and inviting. The place is secluded yet close to everything. Extremely clean and the rooms was perfect (I stayed in the Balcony Room). The breakfast was amazing. If I had one concern (which was minor) was that you could hear music one night from the town,...

Hi Elizabeth H, We always appreciate our guests taking the time to write a review. We know people have really busy lives, so it is a complement that you took the time. The Balcony is one of my favorite rooms. I heard the music from the town that night also. It was actually coming from a wedding that was at... More

This is a hidden gem, close to everything in Kennebunkport, but seemingly distant from all the hub-ub. One visit, and you'll be hooked. The owners are a family operation, and what friendly service they provide. Highly recommended for your visit to the Kennbunkport area.

The waterfront Inn and Cottage is situated approximately one quarter of a mile from town in a well groomed wooded area with large area for sun and games. It's fun to relax and watch the kayaks, paddle boards and boats pass by. The rooms are artfully decorated with Maine coast themes. They are well maintained and staff will provide whatever... More

We have been coming here for 20 years & even visit before renting a cottage nearby just so we can get our Bufflehead fix! Harriet & co. are the best. Breakfasts are amazing! If ever visiting Kennebunkport area you must stay here, I guarantee you will be back again!

Hello from Bufflehead Cove, Wow, we had fun while you all were here. You are a great group of good friends and a pleasure to be around. The celebration this year was special too considering the Supreme Courts ruling! Be well and have a healthy 2015. We hope to see you again, Harriet More

The rooms were spacious and overlooked the water. The room and entire place was clean and well organized and the family is amazing! Friendly and so easy to talk to. They thought of everything, down to the final touch - chocolate on your pillow at bed turn-down. If you are in this part of Maine - it is the only... More
