We stayed our first night in one of the suites, The Lilac Room. It is pretty outdated. Wallpaper and heavy drapes. It could use some brightening up. I was recently told by someone that a couple of years ago they did some renovations. Didn't look like it to me. The next 2 nights we stayed on their property down the... More

Reservations - screwed up by apparent phone problems (large % of time "called failed" message was received) They denied a change in reservations one day after initial reservation even though their cancellation policy, which was stated in their reservation confirmation, was never emailed to us. Poor service on arrival - long delay in getting into room even though room apparently... More

Thank you to Corinne and her great team for a wonderful and memorable stay. We have stayed here before and just love the White Barn for the personal and truly heartfelt service. You still manage to surprise and amaze us with all the little extras you do for guests. Thank you again, we will see you next time..

I made a big mistake. I assumed that a $710 per night (an “upgraded” room at that) at a Relais & Chateau Inn that gets 4 stars on Trip Advisor must be nice. How wrong I was, and if I had taken the time to read recent Trip Advisor posts rather than just rely on the overall rating I would... More

Gourmet Restaurant - excellent food. Wonderful menu and wine list. Very Expensive but a worthwhile, special celebration visit. Service was outstanding and the menu is a fixed price, four course meal or a tasting 8-course. It is a hotel as well and we understand that it is fabulous with a superb spa.

I think couples come here for the great dinners. The rooms are ok, and the breakfasts are surprisingly uninspired, particularly if you have had the dinners which are amazing. Staff is very friendly. Would come back for dinner...........

We recently visited the White Barn Inn for a romantic getaway and had a wonderful stay. Everyone who worked there was very friendly and accommodating, especially Albert at the front desk and Corinne the innkeeper. We had a number of questions about the area and Corinne was very helpful in making great recommendations, including one for a great schooner trip... More

This is a lovely inn. It is not up to the standard that it should be. The rooms are small and average. We were upgraded to a garden room. I'm sure we would have been disappointed in that room in the main building. The restaurant is outstanding. Impeccable service and food. The pool area needs a serious clean up. Furniture... More

The place is in a nice location on the way to the beach and close enough to "downtown" Kennebunk. My expectations may have been a bit high knowing this was a Relais et Chateaux, which I am used to in Europe, and really didn't stand up to the standard. The place was extremely charming. We stayed in May's Annex's Blue... More
