We stayed in Gull Cottage, loved the river view. We wanted privacy and got it. Close to the beach & shops in the Port. Should have had more room for our clothes. Would stay in one of the cottages again!

Kennebunk's landmark institution lives up to the high expectations, but I cannot award it a perfect note due to the steep price -- the value proposition has been more than fully priced-in. Service: Simply outstanding. From check-in to check-out, all the hotel staff attends to your every need. The check-in process was one of the most fluid I have ever... More

We visit Kennebunkport frequently from North Carolina and have stayed at most all of the resorts. We had never stayed here but had heard and read great things so we spent 2 of our 7 nights in Kennebunkport at the White Barn. What a complete disappointment. At almost 900.00 a night I expect Ritz Carlton level service, but our experience... More

My wife and I had the nine course chefs tasting menu with wine pairings. Awesome. Don't eat all day before you go. The atmosphere was great with a pianist roving a nice background. The service was perfect. The entire experience was unforgettable.

I have visited the White Barn Inn every year at Prelude(a special holiday celebration to kick off the season). I have struggled to write a review for this hotel because no words could convey the warmth, beauty and elegance at the barn. It is the perfect balance of classic and cozy. Every room, every common area, every picture and painting... More

We went to Kennebunkport for a quick weekend getaway and had the best time at this inn. The room was beautifully decorated, loved the fireplace and the hot tub. The Inn offered a lot of different services, one of them being a couples massage. It was great! Would definitely go back.

Stayed here for a 2 day package getaway for our anniversary. 1 night included dinner .Quaint old room with a touch of class. Felt like we were in France. Only downside. We had Friday dinner reservations, every night was booked. Billy Joel was there Saturday night. We felt bad for him because the piano player was playing his songs. Other... More

We have the pleasure of staying in one of the cottages - the location was just perfect so private an quiet and right on the Kennebunk river, talk about views! The cottage was more than we hoped for. The bathroom is huge with a true soaking tub, shower for 2 and great lighting! The sitting area has a beautiful stone... More

The location of this hotel could not be better - we walked to both the beach and into the town of Kennebunkport which were amazing. The hotel itself is expensive and seems to enjoy its Relais and Chateau status, but having stayed at 2 other R & C properties this summer, this one does not compare. The room was run... More

The hotel offers a number of different room decors and configurations; and I would encourage you, please, to contact me in future so that... More

We booked this hotel as part of a trip to celebrate my birthday ( a momentus one!) and it was the only one which disappointed. We certainly received real American hospitality from others but here we were given Room 9 which must (at least I hope) be the smallest and most ill-equipped in the hotel. On arrival there was a...

Dear Lesley Dick, Thank you very much for sharing your honest observations about your visit with us in a Traditional Room at The White Barn Inn, followed by a complimentary upgrade to one of the Inn's Junior Suites.
