My husband and I spent two nights at this lovely B&B this August. The setting was so peaceful it felt like we were miles from anywhere. In truth, the charming town of Kennebunkport was less than a mile away. The Inn keeper and staff were very friendly and helpful while also giving the guests plenty of privacy. They have the... More

When traveling from Chicago to Maine, I made a mistake in our travel nights and realized I failed to have a reservation in Kennebunk. I'm so glad I made that mistake as we ended up at Bufflehead Cove Inn. Someone had just cancelled their reservation, and we got the room. The inn is quaint and inviting. Although our room wasn't...

This B&B is located at the end of secluded road(not far from town) overlooking the river. We had the balcony room which had a glass and screened in porch overlooking the cove. Sunrises were amazing. Harriet and her son Erin are wonderful hosts and make you feel comfortable from the moment you step through the door. Breakfast(prepared by Harriet's sister)... More

This was our second visit to Bufflehead, a warm and welcoming B&B just outside of town at the end of a quiet lane right on a cove. Our host, Aaron, was most helpful and accomodating. Our Balcony room was exceptionally large and comfortable with a porch that overlooked the cove. Breakfast inside or on the porch was delicious and filling,... More

Thank you Captain Cosmos. It is a great complement that you couldn't find any negative issues. That is so nice to hear. Of course we look around and constantly see things that need to be improved ( fewer ducks would be a good idea but they keep increasing!). We look forward to having you return. Warm regards, Harriet and Erin More

If you're looking for something different, then this is a great choice. My wife and I travel a fair amount, and we were looking for a one night getaway in Kennebunkport, so we gave this place a try. it's quiet, relaxing, and being near the water is awesome. The staff is incredibly welcoming and sometimes you forget that you're not... More

We spent our 4th summer vacation at Bufflehead Cove Inn and it just keeps getting better. We spent this trip with friends who joined us and hands-down it was the best. Harriet, Jim and Erin are great innkeepers and the go out of their way to accommodate. From wildlife (we saw terns, woodchucks, turkeys, turtles [but no snakes] to fun... More

Hi SR-Boston, It was great having you visit again. If you had asked about snakes I could have shown you one or two that bask on our sunny rock walls! Chances are that's one wildlife you probably don't want to see. Thank you for the nice review and we look forward to seeing you again. Harriet More

My husband and I just returned from a week's stay at beautiful Bufflehead Cove Inn. This inn is perfect for a quiet relaxing stay while still being fairly close to the center of town. We stayed in the Balcony room, a large comfortable room with a beautiful view of the tidal river. The innkeepers Harriet and Erin couldn't have been... More

In looking for the best B&B in Maine, I can honestly say we found it. Superior food. Amazing location. Innkeepers could not be nicer. Fish with Aaron as he is also a guide. Definitely book the River House if you can get it.

I stayed at Bufflehead Inn from Sunday-Tuesday (&/20-22/2014). The Inn location is so peaceful and beautiful. I could have stayed on the grounds all day, but used it as my home base. The Inn owners were very thoughtful hosts. Breakfast was yummy and quite filling. I had breakfast and then was hungry by dinnertime. I stayed in the River room,... More
