We stayed here in October of 2013. I recently started submitting reviews and certainly could not leave this place out. We loved the Lodge on the Cove. It was very simple, cozy and all the employees we encountered made us feel like family. Breakfast in the lobby each morning was a delight. We especially enjoyed the bikes and used them... More

Wife and I spent 3 nights at the "Cove' recently .. nice location .. just minutes from downtown Kennebunkport. Best of both worlds .. close to downtown shopping & restaurants and secluded in a quiet wooded area. Staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay. 'Cove' has been recently renovated .. owners did a really nice job and it... More

Dear bblcampers, Thank you for the glowing review. We appreciate you noticing the attention to detail that went into the renovations. I like how you mentioned the additional outside space that is so relaxing at any time during the season. Sounds like you and your wife had a great experience not only at the lodge on the cove but also... More

Lovely motel style rooms spread out from the main reception building. The decor is fresh, modern and comfortable, the staff are helpful and the location good, just a short drive or 20 minute walk into town.

This was our first visit to Kennbunkport and we were so pleasantly surprised with the Lodge on the Cove. The staff are friendly and helpful. The lodge was recently renovated and it is so stylish, slightly retro and beachy, but not over the top. The room was super clean and comfortable. I loved the location, wooded and secluded, but close... More

Dear JMPS1234, It is always nice to hear about guests not wanting to leave as they are having so much fun. I love your description of us “retro and beachy but not over the top” you hit the nail on the head with those words. We are situated in a residential setting alongside the tidal cove so we definitely do... More

After a little search, our GPS couldn't find South Main Street, we had a very warm welcome. The room was renovated, modern, very comfortable. Very friendly and helpful staff. We arrived quite late, wanted to walk to a nearby restaurant and the manager gave us a torch to read the map and to get orientated. Nice pool, kids friendly, in... More

Dear MarinaDelRay2014, Our seaside windy roads can sometimes be fun to navigate! I’m happy to hear that you were greeted warmly and you enjoyed your accommodations. Hope you had a nice stroll to town and you got to enjoy all of the delicious options that Kennebunkport has to offer. Please think of us again on your future visits to Maine.... More

Fantastic place in every way. All the staff we dealt with from the front desk, to The Dory and the lovely man in the cafe where superbly kind, professional and helpful. The children loved the evening movie nights, not to mention the s'mores at the fire pit. Food at The Dory was excellent so in summary we cannot recommend this... More

We had a large party of about 25, including kids, that arrived on a Saturday afternoon to the indoor/outdoor pool deck/bar area. Of note, we all arrived from the surrounding area so we just experienced the food and drink at the bar/restaurant area. We did not stay overnight. The staff at the bar/restaurant could not have been more welcoming from... More

We really enjoyed staying here, and only wish we could've added an extra night. We booked as a result of a Living Social special (we wouldn't have known about this place otherwise), and got a good deal for a great room and many other appreciated amenities. We loved the funky style of the renovated rooms and exteriors, especially the color... More

We stayed at the Lodge for 3 nights for a family wedding and it was a perfect place to enable multiple families to stay (many with many adult children), mingle and and get together. We especially loved the fire pit at the end of busy days to kick back and relax. Also liked the main lodge room with coffee, tea,... More

When staying with multiple families it is always nice to have rooms near each other so you can open up your front porches and have a great common area to relax and enjoy each other’s company.
