We honeymooned at the inn's private cottage with a gorgeous view of the river. The inn keepers were amazingly accomadating to all our needs including dinner plans. Our cottage was more like a small house with a real fireplace, sweeping stairway leading to a comfy king sized sleigh bed and a super sized bath with jacuzzi and walk in shower.... More

We made our annual visit to the Inn this past weekend to celebrate my birthday and it continues to be a perfect spot for a romantic and quiet getaway. Everything Kennebunkport has to offer is a stone's throw away yet the inn offers a beautiful peaceful retreat "to return home to". Thank you Erin for another wonderful stay and I... More

Unlike many B&Bs, because several of the rental options include private entrances, our stay felt as though we rented a separate cottage or small chateau. My soon to be fiancée and I stayed in The Hideaway (I think) while I also rented The Garden Room for my folks; the intention of our weekend was a quiet, idyllic environment conducive to... More

My second visit to this delightful B&B just outside Kennebunkport. The attention to detail and concern for the guest's needs is 100%. The views are beautiful, especially with the autumn colours and its position guarantees absolute tranquility. We had the River room which was "cosy" - we will definitely go for a bigger room next time.

Hello from Maine, a warm and beautiful November day here! Thank you for your review. I am glad that you were happy with all aspects of the inn... Well, maybe not the size of the River room. It is definitely a small room. Please do come back and visit. All other rooms are much bigger and the Hideaway, Balcony and... More

Great B n B. We return annually and it never disappoints us. The Inn's setting is wonderful as you are on a quiet cove, but close to the Kennebunkport shops, restaurants and beautiful shore line. The breakfasts are delicious, including home baked goods and interesting "entrees". The hosting family are welcoming and very helpful in directing guests to the numerous... More

My wife and I have been coming to Bufflehead Cove Inn for about fifteen years and we have never been disappointed.

This bed and Bath Inn has it all. The hostess/owner Harriet immediately makes you feel like you are a personal guest. The Inn is beautiful and spotlessly clean. The setting is tranquil and has the river flowing by your bedroom. You are in a wooded area and yet only 3 minutes into downtown Kennebunkport. At the wine and cheese happy... More
