We stayed here in late June.. Not our first visit. I was reading a recent review and the review mentioned that there was a Pool available? That would have been nice, but no one at the desk told us about a Pool....The rooms were outstanding. The porch is like no other! We did not eat dinner there this time, the... More

We recently spent two lovely days and nights at the Cape Arundel Inn and found it to be excellent. Our room overlooked the sea and had a beautiful balcony for just relaxing and especially for star gazing. Every staff member was friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make this a memorable stay. The Inn has a spacious... More

Stayed at the Cape Arundel Inn from July 5, 2014 to July 8, 2014, and was greatly pleased with the accommodations, and the staff. The room (need to replace overly soft mattress!) was expansive, and had a wonderful view of the ocean, with the surf crashing against the rocky Maine Coast. I read a review where someone complained about the... More

We have wanted to stay at this Inn for years and finally were able to make it happen. We had driven by recently and knew we wanted the ocean view room over the porch with it's own balcony. The wait was absolutely worth it. This room (#2) is lovely. The weather was perfect and we spent quite some time on... More

Dear Ann043 Thank you for the wonderful review of Cape Arundel Inn. We are so glad you enjoyed the room and that the wait was worth it.

This was our first visit to the Cape Arundel Inn. As we made arrangements somewhat last minute and rooms were scarce due to the Kennebunk Wine and Food Festival, our only room choice was the "Crow's Nest". When we arrived and expressed our concerns about some aspects of the room, the manager on duty did her best to try to... More

Cape Arundel is an amazing place to stay. We stayed in room 26 overlooking the ocean. The room was beautiful and spotless; the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Breakfast and dinner in the dining room overlooking the ocean (aptly named Ocean) was second to none. Took a long walk along Ocean Ave with... More

We have long admired the view at Cape Arundel Inn and finally decided to stay here on a recent trip. The ocean views from the front and east side of the Inn can't be beat. The newly redone lobby, lounge and restaurant are beautifully appointed. Too bad the restaurant food didn't live up to the the design aesthetics. The food... More
