Having visited to the White Barn Restaurant for dinners and brunches many times before, I can truly say that special occasions are where "the Barn" elevates its shine. We celebrated a big family milestone this past weekend and there is no other place that would have made it as special. The meal and staff were so wonderful and gracious and... More

We have reviewed the restaurant (dinner) separately, which was a 5 star experience and quite recommened. We had read about the White Barn Inn, and had high expectations. For the most part they were met, but they just are lacking a bit of polish. It is not quite as rustic as we thought. It lies on a busy street (we... More

What a lovely quiet Relais Chateu - always feels like coming home when we book into one as they are so comfortable and beautifully furnished and service is generous and elegant - this one is no exception.  Ideally located Clare to the town and a walk to the seashore, but far enough away from the madding crowd to be quiet...

My wife and I chose the White Barn Inn to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Everything about it exceeded our expectations. The garden room had the charm we were looking for, the staff were extremely attentive and friendly, the restaurant is what you would expect in a 5-star and was simply amazing, and the location was perfect. We spent most of... More

I was casting about for a place to celebrate without having to hop on a plane, etc. My wonderful neighbor suggested the White Barn Inn, highly recommending it as both an inn and a restaurant. We are so grateful... We were able to get the autumn package, which included dinner for the two nights we were there. So glad we... More

We loved the White Barn Inn - and this is why: The fabulous location: Situated between the coast and the town of Kennebunkport - and close to both - the hotel is perfectly positioned for those who prefer to explore the area by foot rather than jump in the car! Kennebunkport is pretty, with plenty of shops, boutiques, cafes and... More

We stayed in room 9 in the main house, very small in the eaves of the building, should have only been a single rather than double. The house policy is that if you eat in the main restaurant as opposed to the Bistro (more about this later) you must wear a jacket I don't take jackets on holiday as I... More

My wife and I spent a couple of nights at the White Barn Inn. We stayed at the Tern cottage on the wharf approx. two tenths of a mile from the main building. The cottage is located just inside the gate securing the property from the adjoining neighborhood. This cottage does not have a dedicated parking spot so we had... More

My wife and I think the White Barn Inn is terrific!! It is a hidden sanctuary off the main road but close enough to walk to the beach or Dock Square. Very romantic, accommodating, private and elegant. We stayed in early October when the leaves are changing. Each room gets a treat and split of champagne. We stayed in the... More

We were on a 2 week driving trip from Boston thru the Andirondacks, VT, NH, ME and back down the coast to Boston. We stayed at all 4 star rated B&B's, resorts and country Inns, and except for the White Barn Inn were pretty happy with the accomodations and meals. At the White Barn we were in a 3rd floor... More
