Feels like a walk back in time. Beautiful old Inn with classic updates to comfortable rooms. Amazing views of the ocean and a short 5 minute drive to town. Highly recommend a winter stay here! Staff very friendly!

We stayed at the Cape Arundel Inn in August of 2014. No detail was overlooked by the attentive staff. The pool was relaxing and a great place to share a delicious lunch (brought to your lounge chair)! The surroundings were a perfect slice of summertime in New England. The breakfast, included with our stay, was a wonderful way to begin... More

We visited for their New Year's Eve package which included a fabulous 4 course dinner in the amazing Ocean dining room, a "room at the Inn" and an amazing breakfast on New Years Day, complete with mimosas or Bloody Mary's!

Stayed here for Prelude weekend. The Old Fort Inn is a companion property of the Cape Arundel Inn and is set back in a wooded area. The staff was great and the reception building extremely charming. The rooms are in a separate building behind the reception one. Most of the rooms are on the second floor, and there is no... More

Pleasant first stop on our New England road trip in a famous and very scenic village, thankfully George W wasn’t in residence when we were here, but that wouldn't have spoiled Kennebunkport, which was utterly beautiful. We had a glass of bubbly to welcome us, which was a very good way to start our trip and we sat in the... More

We loved it as soon as we pulled up to the resort. What a view. The town was so cute. Best lobster dinner at Mabels Lobster Claw. The room was cozy. Loved the heated floor in the bathroom. Everyone was so friendly. My husband enjoyed talking to ken the handy man.
