Everything about the Bufflehead is special. The warmth and hospitality of the owners greet you immediately and make your stay special until you depart. Rooms, scenery, breakfast - all excellent! Highly recommend.

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

This has been our third stay at bufflehead cove and like always we truly enjoyed ourselves. They are located on a private road and the setting is serene. This was our summer vacation before our baby arrives. Me and my husband were both able to relax and take our minds off everything else. The family that runs the b&b are... More

We had a very brief stay here, celebrating our wedding anniversary. Unfortunately, I was not feeling well so we didn't get to explore the Inn much or really enjoy the porch and grounds, but I wanted to share that the Inn is very lovely and the staff are quite friendly. Since I was room-bound on our check-out morning, my husband... More

Hello Pam S, What a shame that you were sick while you were here. I am glad that you enjoyed your breakfast and our location. I am pleased also that you liked the ducks. I get a bit nervous at check in when they all come up for their dinner and there are ducks meeting our guests in the driveway.... More

We have stayed here many many times over the years. It is our very favorite B and B, and we have stayed at a lot of them all over the country. We stayed in the Garden Room this year as my husband cannot go up and down stairs very much. We are so thankful that there is ground floor room... More

Hi MLJ, Your husband is so tall that maybe going upstairs in the inn would be a bad thing... has he never hit his head in the stairway? I am glad the Garden room worked well for you. It is always a pleasure to see you both and I really appreciate your taking time to write another nice review. Thanks... More

My husband and I stayed at Bufflehead Cove Inn for our 10 year anniversary. The Inn was amazing! We stayed in the Balcony room which was cozy and had a beautiful view. The Inn keepers were friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable about the area. If you are looking for a quiet,romantic getaway I would highly recommend Bufflehead Cove.

My wife and I first became aware of Bufflehead during a kayak excursion below the Inn last year. We were impressed by the serene location, but also close to the center of Kennebunkport. We were not disappointed with our stay in "Hideaway". Perfect hosts, wonderful accommodations and a place to which we will most definitely return.
