My husband and I had planned to stay at the Bufflehead Cove Inn two weekends ago. We arrived just in time to learn that our three year old had been admitted to the hospital back home in Chicago. Thankfully, it was an astma attack and not something worse as originally feared. First of all, Harriet (the innkeeper) could not have... More

My husband and I have visited Bufflehead Cove once a summer over the past 17 years. It's hard to know where to begin when describing all of the wonderful aspects of our experiences there. Would it be the beautiful scent of fresh flowers (often Lillies) in the main entry room of the Inn, or the very friendly canine, Lily, or... More

We stayed here for three nights in the River Room. This is the smallest room & Harriet did warn us of this but at the time of booking it was the only room available. However, it was clean, comfortable & quiet - our main criteria for a stay anywhere.The owners were the perfect hosts & always on hand to give... More

We have been staying with Harriet and Jim at Bufflehead annually for the past 14 years. When staying here you feel like you are part of the family. The location is perfect for accessing all of Southern Maine. We love the Hideaway best, though there isn't a room that isn't delightful on its own. The breakfasts are always wonderful. Harriet...

My wife & I stayed at the bufflehead cove inn on the 1st night of our honeymoon, having flown into Boston earlier the same afternoon. We arrived in the dark - about 8, and even then didn't have any problems finding the place, even though it is "down a small unlit lane" The garden room we'd booked was perfect, as... More

My partner and I are very well travelled and are use to staying at the best hotels in the world. The Bufflehead Cove is AMAZING!! The owners know what they are doing. They are very helpful, the rooms are great (I recommend the balcolny room), and the breakfast was spectacular. We met some very nice people and we would go... More

We travel extensively and Bufflehead Cove is one of our favorite Inns. The Innkeepers are always pleasant and accomadating and the breakfasts are fabulous. The Inn fronts the river which we find very relaxing. The accomadations offer variety and are well maintained. It is a short ride to the picturesque town of Kennebunkport with great shops, restaurants and other activities.... More

From the moment I turned down the well maintained gravel road toward Bufflehead Cove Inn on the tidal Kennebunk River leading to the Sea, until I had to drive out three days later- the experience was one of idylllic pleasure. First, the very private location of this tastefully appointed Inn sits on six lovely acres bordering the river. But- most... More

Just spent a lovely weekend in The Hideaway at the Bufflehead Cove Inn. The price was $265 per night, but the lavish accomodations were worth it. Large comfortable king bed with more pillows than you could ask for -- and different levels of pillow firmness to choose from, ensuring a restful night. A two sided gas fireplace added to to...
