I really wish that there was a 4 1/2 star rating. This is not a 5 star review because of a very few nit picky things that could have been better, but it is a very nice place to stay with incredible views and an excellent restaurant. Being nit picky, we found that the front desk was unattended a couple... More

This is our fourth visit to Cape Arundel Inn. Our room had a spectacular view. We could sit on our deck and drink in the beauty. This year we had to pay a resort fee, and we did know that before we went. We asked why they added it and did not get a clear answer. We really do not... More

We had dinner at the Inn! Fabulous and great view! Did not stay there. Service was excellent and we got a corner window seat overlooking Walker Point! We beat the crowd by going at 5:30, but you should call well in advance for reservations. The online system did not work.

We spent 2 wonderful days at the Cape Arundel Inn. We would love to have stayed much longer! The staff went out of their way to address our special mobility needs - for example, providing steps to help us getting in and out of the rather high (but wonderfully comfortable) beds. À la carte breakfasts (included) and dinners in the... More

Beautiful B&B! We stayed 2 nights in the Old Fort Inn. It was cozy, quit, and comfortable. The staff was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and things to do in town. My only complaint was the lack of wait staff at breakfast. The girls were not overly friendly either. It took too long to get coffee and our food. One... More

We recently stayed 2 nights at Old Fort Inn, just a quarter mile away from the main hotel, and it was beautifully appointed. I was a bit worried because all the reviews here were about the beautiful ocean view rooms at Cape Arundel Inn, but honestly, it was really nice at the sister property just a short walk away. The...

This is the second time we stayed at this Inn. We love the location across the ocean and the beautiful veranda. We had breakfast in the veranda everyday, enjoying the beautiful view. The breakfast options were good, we had the omelettes and the eggs benedict. Service was attentive. The front desk staff were also very nice and helpful. We stayed... More

We spent four nights and enjoyed every minute! The room was very spacious and comfortable. We had a small balcony on the ocean and we slept with the balcony door opened, listening to the occean. In the morning, we had breakfast on the veranda still admiring the ocean. The food was very good and the service attentive. We would recommend... More

My first encounter of the Cape Arundel was in 2007 when my husband and I were visiting Maine and spending the day in Kennebunkport. We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to look through a Fox News camera of President George W Bush, waiting for the arrival of Vladimir Putin. Since that time, I thought how nice it would...

Stayed at their sister hotel, Fort Inn, and oh how lovely it was. Great room, wifi, breakfast included and wonderful. Swimming pool with pool service for drinks and lunch. Ate a romantic dinner at Cape Arundel Inn where the view of the ocean was just outstanding. Easy in and out to the village. Loved this place and plan to return.
