we thoroughly enjoyed this place. Rooms were a good size, lots of light and extremely comfortable. Bathroom could have been larger, but that is my only complaint. I would not rate this as 'charming' because that's not the style. It's more like a 'glammed-up' cabin, but exactly what you would want in Kennebunkport. The grounds are lovely, and all staff... More

Busy summer without much time to write. We have been back to the LOC at least four times for just an overnight... and up to three nights stay.

We were just here for vacation. The property has been beautifully updated! "Retro-beachy" for sure! The room decor and accommodations are excellent. The only downside to the room is it isn't sound proof. We were next to a noisy young child and could hear each yell, stomp, etc. Other than that, the rooms are excellent! They have a great poolside... More

Dear kol2468, “Retro-beachy”-love it! Thank you for noticing all of the details of the renovation. Sorry that the room adjacent to yours was noisy; we apologize for that. Sometimes those instances are out of our hands so we do provide sound machines in each of the rooms to help provide a comfortable night’s sleep. Sounds like you got to enjoy... More

We enjoyed 2 nights at the Lodge last week. Very comfortable rooms, especially the beds, nicely decorated in a contemporary, beachy theme. Pool, bar, bean bags and the Dory for snacks and breakfast. An easy walk to the Colony Beach or into town. Very nice property, tucked away in the woods and on a tidal cove. My only disappointment was... More

We just spent a lovely few days at the Lodge on the Cove. It is a beautiful spot, that feels tucked away from the bustle of Kennebunkport but is an easy walk there .

Lodge on the Cove is expensive but definitely worth the price. We spent 2 days three in late July and loved the whole experience. It was very relaxed and intimate with great customer service, the onsite food,pool and table tennis are great for families. The rooms are comfortable but designed for sleeping only.

Lodge on the Cove was adorable, and my favorite hotel of the trip! I was clean, tons of activities, helpful staff, great views. There is a great pool that has a bar, restaurant, and ping-pong. We lounged by the pool during the day (the Maine beach is beautiful but full of pebbles and cold water).

A well presented lodge with good sized rooms and a pleasant pool area. The reception area has plenty of seating areas for the occasional rainy afternoon. Dinner shuttle was very useful - although it is only a 15 minute stroll into town. The restaurant is handy if you are around at lunch time although the morning cafe could be made... More

We made our first visit to the Lodge on the Cove recently. We were looking specifically for low key boutique B&B type stay, but also wanted access to a pool, so this seemed like a great option.
