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

This lovely New England Inn is located only a mile from downtown Kennebunkport but as soon you arrive you feel that you are in your own little forest getaway. The Inn is lovely and Harriet, her son, and granddaughter are the ultimate hosts. We stayed in the Hideaway, our own little slice of heaven, complete with living room, a king... More

Thank you so much. What a thrill for Isabella, my granddaughter, to read that! She has been so helpful lately and to get such a nice complement was a great incentive to continue to help. Maybe someday the third generation will be running the inn. We are glad you enjoyed your visit and do hope you come visit again soon. More

Bufflehead Cove Inn is a stately summer cottage in a romantic setting on a tidal cove, yet it's only minutes from restaurants and shops. Lovely grounds and beautifully a decorated room. Gracious and caring innkeepers served a delicious breakfast on the front porch overlooking the cove each morning. Great stay!

We loved our time at bufflehead cove inn. Some innkeepers are really just inn owners. They collect your money and offer nothing. Harriet however, is a true inn keeper that offers you a welcoming, warm place to stay during your time in kennebunkport. The property is beautiful and so relaxing. You can sit out on the water for hours and... More

The Bufflehead Cove is exactly what one dreams an inn will be like! This was our first stay in Maine and in a B & B! The entire staff is a warm, wonderful family and it shows! The early morning coffee and home cooked gourmet breakfasts are incredible! The afternoon snacks and beverages are such as nice touch as one... More

This well hidden gem will NOT disappoint! Little did we know that what awaited us through the woods, was a charming inn on the banks of the Kennebunk river. You would never know that the town was only a mile up the road! It was peaceful, the food outstanding and the innkeepers the best we have ever encountered. We wouldn't... More

Stayed in the Hideout room at Bufflehead Cove. Room was absolutely amazing and staff was out of this world fabulous! Breakfast in the morning was home cooked and absolutely delicious. Room was immaculately clean and spacious. Coffee was brought to our room every morning at 7am, which was such a nice touch. Even wine and cheese also added a special... More

Hi Angela S, We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. The Hideaway room is perfect for a honeymoon because it is so private. That's why we deliver your morning coffee.... so you can privately sit on your porch early in the morning and enjoy that first cup! We thank you very much for the complements. I have passed on...

Our stay at kennebunkport was great, partly due to the hospitality of the hosts who were available from morning to dawn. The room was comfortable, the breakfast were delicious and even the snacks (cheese wine cookie and fruits) were terrific. The site is very well located, as we were a few minutes away from the town and the beach either... More

Hi YPoon, We enjoyed meeting both of you and are pleased that you were happy with your visit. Our River room is our smallest room, so it is a pleasure to hear that you liked it. The view is pretty and having the open air balcony extends the room a bit. I hope your trip back to Canada went smoothly... More
