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

My fiancé and I just spent an evening at this amazing and quaint resort. From the moment we walked through the main entrance to check out, everything was outstanding. Every staff member from front desk, restaurant and even housekeeper greeted us with a warm smile and friendly conversation. Angela walked us to our room and showed us where everything was... 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

Thank you for your review of The Old Fort Estate. We are delighted to see that you enjoyed your stay with us and the welcome glass of champagne in our fireside lounge. The pool is lovely even in September and October, we did manage to keep it open until mid October this year as it was so unseasonably mild, we... More

Perfect Getaway. Very nice and accommodating staff. Drinks and appetizer awaited us on arrival. November is a great time to visit. Very quiet but plenty of shops, restaurant s and other things going on.

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.

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Old Fort. The front desk staff was pleasant and offered us a welcome glass of champagne. The lobby is nicely decorate and felt very cozy with a small bar, a pool table, a fireplace, and several sitting areas. We were shown to our room past a pool which was closed when... More

We loved our night at the " Old Fort Inn" Had a fabulous breakfast at the Cape Arundel Ocean restaurant. The view was awesome. As bikes were provided for guests we took a nice ride to the entrance of the Bush's summer home and the lovely St. Ann's Episcopal Church. The little village of Kennebunkport is quaint but a little... More

The Cape Arundel area of Kennebunkport is FABULOUS!!! Beautiful ocean views as well as lovely home sites to walk by. And don't forget the view over to Walker Point, summer home of the George Bush family! The little village can actually be a tad touristy....lots and lots of shops with stuff that says Kennebunkport on it. Glad we were not... More
