Our stay at Bufflehead Cove has been perfect. Our hosts could not have been more helpful, giving us advice for trips and places to eat. Bufflehead Cove is just a really beautiful place, where you can chill out. The house overlooks the river and we spent a morning just enjoying the sun and the surroundings. Peace, perfect peace. Our room,... More

We stayed in the secluded Hideaway room at this wonderful Inn Sept 6-7 for our 22nd Anniversary. Only complaint was that we didn't stay longer. Place is walking distance to town yet it is so quiet and beautiful, on river, amazing waterfront view, peaceful and charming. Hosts were so friendly and accommodating. Room was unique - front porch, table outside... More

We couldn't have asked for a better stay at this lovely hotel. Amazing hospitality on the part of Erin & Harriet. The breakfasts were top notch, and it was fun to see the ducks out on the water in the afternoon/evening. The inn itself is very well kept, and is only a short walk/drive from town. Kennebunk/Kennebunkport is a great... More

Bufflehead Cove Inn was more lovely than expected and our hosts much more gracious than another reviewer from 2006 indicated. As we always try to check Trip Advisor reviews before booking a place, we were concerned with this reviewer’s comments. It is true that the walk to town at night would be difficult given the long driveway without lights, but... More

Driving down the wooded lane to the Bufflehead Cove Inn doesn`t prepare you for the wonderful location at the end of the drive. We were "blown away" by how beautiful and how quiet it was. I had inadvertently chosen the smallest room (River) as it had a shower, which I need as opposed to a bath, but this room was... More

Wow, I thought I was well traveled. I looked at your list of places visited. Pretty impressive. It's also impressive that you gave us such a great review. You must come back sometime soon and try our larger rooms with showers! Warm regards from Maine, Harriet More

Peaceful and relaxing. A great location, right on the river and only a mile to the town of Kennebunkport where shops and restaurants are plentiful. Great room, clean with nice linens etc..The Inkeeper and staff were great.

We just got home from a 3 night stay at the Bufflehead Cove Inn, and we had such a beautiful weekend. I think we met the whole staff at one point or another, and everyone was perfectly pleasant and eager to accommodate us. I was especially appreciative of their mindfulness of some special diet restrictions we mentioned upon booking. They... More

What a nice review, and so soon after you have left! Thank you so much. We really enjoyed your company and admired the way you stayed calm when the car had a flat. May you remain that calm in any future calamities! It's a great trait to have. Please come again for a visit. Have a nice fall and winter.... More

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

Hello Lisa P, Thank you for the nice review. I like the fact that the inn seems miles from everywhere but is actually pretty close to town. On a busy summer day it is great to sit here on the front porch and watch the busy traffic way down river but enjoy the peace of being here. I passed on... 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...

Hi Holly S, We are glad you made that mistake too. So many people who stay in the River room comment on it's being small ( which it certainly is!) but comfortable. It is our smallest room. I hope you come back sometime and try one of the bigger ones. thank you for all the nice thoughts, Harriet at Bufflehead... More

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
