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

Dear Nicole S, We are most grateful for your kind comments about our location. We are, however, very sorry that you did not enjoy the White Barn Inn and that we failed to me your expectations. 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. While it is customary and standard operating procedure to offer an upgrade for an additional fee, the $100.00 upgrade fee alluded to... More

How do you define perfection? The White Barn Inn in Kennebunk might be it! from the time I called and spoke to Katie to make my reservation until the time we departed the parking lot after a two night stay- all was just so well done. At first we were not going to stay here because the web site had... More

We had a truly amazing stay. Upscale property in every way with a bed and breakfast feel. The location was perfect - close to everything but not directly where the crowds are. The staff were all friendly and helpful.

We recently stayed at the White Barn Inn as part of trip to New England to celebrate our husbands 60th birthdays. We booked our rooms 7 mos. in advance and were told we had the same rooms on the 3rd floor. Because we were traveling for almost 3 wks the 4 of us had a lot of luggage. I knew... More

Truly a wonderful place to be on so many levels!

On a recent tour of New England we were fortunate enough to stay at the White Barn Inn - a beautiful Relais & Chateau property - where nothing was too much trouble for out hosts. Everything from our room to the outdoor swimming pool and the excellent dining were superb. On arrival we were given a short tour of the... More

I stayed one night at the White Barn Inn and chose it specifically for the pool which is as nice in person as it is in pictures. It's long enough to do good laps, the stonework is lovely and it's surrounded by tall trees and greenery. The room I was in was near the pool, you can see it in... More

From check-in to check-out we found the Inn and staff incredibly warm and welcoming. At times country inn's do not know how to balance formality with warmth but this was not the case at all. The room was large, bed was the most comfortable I can remember in any hotel I've stayed in (incl. Four Seasons HK, Peninsula Chicago etc)... More

Spent a long weekend based on White Barn Inn. Complimentary breakfast was plenty to get you started for day. The heated pool is fabulous for when the Ocean is just too cold. We borrowed bikes and rode all around town to burn calories before dinner. We had a Superior Queen which was really nice, no need for anything bigger. Would... More
