My family and I stayed at Cape Arundel Inn two weeks ago for my birthday. This beautiful inn is one of my favorite places in New England. The staff was so friendly and very helpful. The views from our room were breathtaking. The bed was extremely comfortable and falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean was amazing. The inn... More

Overall it was a nice time except for flaws. Shades were difficult to work, no chair for desk, shower had no shelf (which meant products placed on sink) and floor got wet. Windows were drafty ( no one pulled down the storms), broken hair dryer( took forever to get one) and the front desk thought it was funny. Believe it... More

Living locally I have been to the dining room in prior years and loved every dinner I had. The visit this summer was very disappointing. NO PIANO, I couldn't believe it was replaced with a bar that faces a wall. The service was awful. I saw our drinks sitting at the bar for at least 15 minutes. I finally reminded... More

We are so very sorry to read this review. We did remodel the dining room last year and it is fabulous décor but we did not include the piano in its place we put in a nice bar area for guests to enjoy. We apologize for the service during your last visit with us. We are now under new management... More

A little disappointed in the deletion of the piano from the dining room, now the bar seems to be the focus. Having eaten here several times in the past, we were a little surprised by the new nouveau menu and little portions. Miss the steak from previous visits and at least one traditional dessert on the menu. Although the service... More

We loved! our stay. What a wonderful Inn. Very clean, great food and drink. Best of all, very friendly and helpful staff! The first night we had cocktails by the fire in the lounge before dinner. The Inn had taken the time to explore local distilleries and had found a deliciously unusual Gin. Back in the room, the provided martini... More

Got a great deal on a great room! Three nights for the price of two with fabulous views. Staff was excellent and our room was perfect. Loved having the Keurig for our sunrise mornings, beautiful location, great area for walking. Can't believe we really stayed in such a beautiful place!

We spent two nights at the Cape Arundel Inn on September 25 and 26 and had a wonderful time. We were in the Rockbound wing in the Atlantis Room. The room was warm and cozy with a big, carved four poster bed (very comfy), two wing chairs, a fireplace, and a flat screen TV (that made hubby very happy). There... More

Very nice inn. Very quiet, relaxing and peaceful - away from it all yet a fairly easy walk into town. We had a very lovely, large, nicely furnished room with a small balcony with a view of the gardens the ocean and a gas fireplace. The beds were very comfortable with wonderful crisp linens and plump pillows. The bath had... More

Beautiful inn, gorgeous setting, friendly staff. Delightfully set on the ocean, far from the busloads of tourists who cram the town. Calm, quiet and relaxing. Our room was lovely and had a view of the gardens, the ocean and the Walker estate (Bush compound). My only complaint was that the clerestory windows in our room (which had a vaulted ceiling)...
