4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed in main lodge (Room 4) for one night in June. Owners were nice enough to give us a price break when "deciding to book" and "2015 prices" overlapped. Small but clean & pleasant room; enjoyable après bike ride drinks; excellent breakfast. Try for rooms 2 or 3! We'll go back!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We arrived late in the day, and the dining room was full, so the remarkably nice lady on the desk, after phoning several restaurants in vain, arranged to have a table set up for us in the front room overlooking the water. Couldn't have been nicer. The lighting in our room was dim, impossible for reading, and there was only... More

As many of your guests, my wife and I have traveled at many beautiful places, They don't come close to the quality we get at Cape Arundel! This is our second stay (Sunday, July 5th), and even during such a busy holiday, your Front Desk Staff helped us find the perfect room of our choice once again! We had the... More

July 2015. We’ve stayed here once before and thought we would try it again (hoping things would be improved). Although bathrooms are nicely updated, the rooms are inherently dark, dingy, poorly lit and still use under-powered, ancient window air conditioners. This place needs a major interior renovation. There are no elevators in the building, but the desk people will drag... More

Thank you BBB57 for your review! We welcome your feedback and critique of our Old Fort Estate location and will look to improve the issues you touched upon. We did slight upgrades to the already recently remodeled Carriage House this past off-season with new, brighter shades of blues and greens to brighten the rooms. Because the Old Fort Estate is...

We actually stayed at the old fort inn, part of the cape arundel. First thought we were ripped off but when we arrived the place ended up being better than the main hotel. Rooms large slightly outdated but really comfortable, quiet and the best pool with club house. The staff made the stay awesome, bikes, bar, fresh cookies and lemonade.... More

This is a first class resort. The staff is warm and welcoming. Laurie who runs The Old Fort is very solicitous to all the guests. She is very knowledgable about where to dine and with things to do. We had a truly wonderful time and highly recommend a stay here.

We found the inn to be just as advertised. Peaceful elegance, beautiful views of the ocean, and a most rewarding dining experience. No need to travel out in the evening for dinner as the restaurant has a great selection and gourmet menu. We found our room to be perfect, very comfortable. Wonderful birthday celebration.

We really enjoyed our stay. It's not in the center of town so it was nice and quiet and they have bikes on the property that we rode into town. The staff was very pleasant. It's a nice little gem that is comfortable. Walking distance (or shuttle service) to the Cape Arundel Inn for (free) breakfast.

Thank you Lauren M for your great review! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Old Fort Estate, a Cape Arundel Inn resort. You could not be more right on the appeal of the Old Fort Estate, as it is within comfortable distance to town, but is perfectly tucked away in the beautiful woodlands of Kennebunkport. This...

How fortunate we were to have cancelled reservations and plans for a stay in Portland to book this property on our first trip to Maine!

One of the best places we have stayed. Dramatic setting across from ocean, by magnificent paved nature walk. Historic, yet utterly cheerful, restored Inn. Staff can't do enough. Dinner excellent with wonderful views and service. Highly recommend.
