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

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

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
