After 7 years of visits, I have to say that the Cape Arundel Inn just keeps getting better and better! Recent room renovations have been a lovely change, with subtle and tasteful paint, new furniture and amazing bedding. Frette sheets and towels with down comforters and pillows made my favorite vacation spot even more luxurious. The staff is incredibly friendly... More

My husband and I chose the Cape Arundel Inn for its one-of-kind location high on a knoll overlooking the ocean, and the sumptious front porch with thick cushioned chairs. The Inn did not disappoint. The view from the property, including the front porch and the huge window in our room, overlooks the ocean and is striking. There are sidewalks along... More

Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so happy that you enjoyed your time here. It sounds like you took full advantage of the roomy porch, drinking in ocean views along with your morning coffee before moving into the dining room for an "exceptionally good" breakfast. It is really nice to receive feedback that the time and... More

Bravo to the new owners who continue to improve the inn, our guest room was beautifully refurbished, only enhanced by the unobstructed view and sounds of the ocean. These rooms are attractively done, very clean and most of all cozy. The front desk staff was very helpful and accommodating, Patrick was a great source of information and directions. The breakfast...

I stayed at the inn in '69 traveling with my mother, dad and kid brother. It was the most wonderful place in the world to me. Now, decades later the magic is still there and I STILL think it is the most wonderful place to be. Lovely bed linens, fabulous views, beautiful breakfasts and comfortable places to sit and write,...

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely, relaxing mini vacation at this charming New England Inn. The setting is fantastic - featuring incredible ocean views. We left our windows open and let the sound of the waves lull us to sleep. The inn is beautifully furnished, the staff is friendly and the dinner we had (haddock) was delicious. I would... More

We are so pleased that you had a wonderful, relaxing stay! We are definitely fortunate to enjoy such a beautiful, dramatic setting right on the edge of the Atlantic. It is so lovely that the cadence of the waves lulled you to sleep. Like you, we appreciate the varied soundscapes that the ocean provides. It is so nice that you... More

My husband and I stayed at the Cape Arundel Hotel on a warm but misty night in May. From start to finish it was a lovely experience. We stayed in room 3, which is the front room with bay window, and it was a tranquil and elegant room over-looking the ocean, within view of Walker Point. After unpacking we had... More

We've been fortunate enough to stay at Arundel several times over the last couple of years. The location cannot be beat. Falling asleep to the crashing waves is nothing short of amazing. The BEST hotel we've stayed in while visiting Maine.
