We stayed at the Old Fort Estate 3 nights in August. We arrived early and decided to explore Kennebunkport prior to checking in. Losing track of time, we received a call from the Inn confirming that we still intended to check in...we thought this was very efficient of them but there was no pressure to check in soon. Upon arriving... More

This is an 1895 house now restored inn with about 20 rooms. I saw two rooms and both had bathrooms which were small but updated. The bedrooms themselves had sitting areas right in front of picture windows with beautiful views directly onto the ocean (and the Bush compound about a half mile away). The staff could not have been more... More

Had a good stay at the Cape Arundel Inn. Although the decor is more traditional/heavy for our taste, the overall feeling was relaxed. There's a great porch to hang out, have a drink, take in the ocean air. Breakfast was lovely - eggs any way you want them, bacon, fresh made croissants...not too shabby. Only negatives included our bathroom that... More

Thank you Rick B for taking the time to review the Cape Arundel Inn & Resort! Thank you so much for bringing the location of the air conditioner and its effect on your night to our attention. We will certainly look into relocating the air conditioner right away. We will also look into updates for the bathroom as well, and... More

Every year for our wedding anniversary, 8/14/2009, we have come to Kennebunkport. In 2011, we discovered The Old Fort Inn, a beautiful Bed n Breakfast, tucked away in the quiet neighborhood of Kennebunkport. It’s a stones throw from the ocean and the Bush Compound on Walker Point. Last year, we were informed that this BnB merged with the Cape Arundel... More

We did not stay in the main house (and the old fort inn rooms were roomy but dark), but the porch overlooking the ocean was one of the most beautiful spots. We sat there for hours at a time--during a storm, late evening or on a sunny afternoon. I have never felt so relaxed in my life and the view... More

We headed to Maine coast after a NH camp drop off. We had no reservations and drove thru beautiful Kennebunkport and decided to stay. Although Cape Arundel couldn't accommodate 3 adults, they gave us a good price on 2 rooms at Old Fort. When we checked in, we were blown away by the gorgeous lobby, great room with pool table,...

We spent 3 nights in this wonderful hotel. The room in the Old Fort site was wonderful - clean, comfortable and well equipped. We had breakfast each day in the main building overlooking the spectacular coast, the best setting you could wish for. The staff were wonderful and the food was great. We can also thoroughly recommend the cocktails! Locally... More

We stayed here one night while on a two week trek through New England, great location, nice room (8), bathroom a bit cramped, but it's and inn. The service was kind, but not overly attentive, which I appreciated. The restaurant has wonderful views, but unfortunately neither my wife nor I were impressed with the food at dinner.

From our arrival to our departure, the staff were helpful, kind and gracious. We stayed in Room #3, with sweeping views of the Kennebunkport coast. The restaurant "Ocean" was superb and the lightning storm during dinner was breathtaking, with guests oohing and aahing over the thunderbolts. We took a tour with Hydi of HydiDrive, on her extended custom golf cart.... More

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!
