4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

We thoroughly enjoyed a recent 3 day jaunt to Kennebunkport, and the Lodge is one of the best properties to relax, unwind, and have some fun! The staff was fantastic and Carl the shuttle driver was always on schedule to provide a stress free ride to local restaurants for dinner. The property is beautiful and the rooms are clean and...

Dear Mortink, Relax, Unwind, and have some fun……that should be our new logo. It is a great explanation of what we hope to have our guests accomplish while they are staying with us. I will pass along your kind words to Carl. The supper shuttle is a very convenient way for guests to enjoy a complimentary ride into town or... More

Lodge on the Cove had everything we needed for a quick casual get-away to Maine. We love the area and usually stay with friends, but this time wanted to stay on our own. We had a delightful time. The rooms are very comfortable and perfectly appointed and very tidy. Everything feels like it is pretty much brand new with a... More

The staff and property were great. The free bikes were perfect way to get around and see some sights. We stayed in Room 31, very spacious, clean and comfortable. Jenna at The Dory made us some great drinks and wings. Perfect place to stay!

Dear Kim H, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Our Bayberry Suite, Room 31, is very spacious and a nice location at the end of our Bayberry building situated closest to the tidal cove. Our bikes are a lot of fun and bring out the children in people as we see them riding around the property, along Ocean... More

This inn was recently renovated, so, everything feels very fresh and new. It is very streamlined and you get a calm feeling as soon as you enter the property. The staff also work to make sure your visit is streamlined and you have everything you need. When we arrived, the manager actually helped us bring a bag in from the... More

Wonderful location next to a cove with blue herons, close to town and restaurants, easy walk (or shuttle) to beach; fresh modern decor and super kid friendly. Parents can relax while kids enjoy the pool, ping pong and games. Restaurant with lighter fare and great service is next to pool, breakfast choices in the cafe are nice. Rooms are very... More

The Lodge was beautiful--lovely location, awesome design, great attention to detail. It was also chock-full of families with young children, and we two middle-aged people felt quite out of place. Just an FYI that this is a terrific place for families, but not for a romantic getaway! We had a family next to us with a two-year-old and a five-year-old,... More

Great family friendly hotel. Love the decor in the lodge and rooms. Activities for the whole family. Heated pool. Easy walk to Kennebunkport restaurants and shops. Lots of thought given to kids, with ping pong, board and lawn games, and kids menu. Maybe not the best for couples without kids, unless you don't mind kids jumping around in the pool.... More

Dear MELIGB, Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review about us. Reserving in Sweet Gale, which is our adult only floor, is a great recommendation for couples traveling and wanting a secluded feel. Our property is a perfect match for family traveling during the busy summer months and the Spring and Fall are fantastic times... More

The rooms are very cozy and very clean. Clean and new for me is a priority when travelling. The Lodge is basically a spruced up pretty place that caters to all. It was very quiet and away from noise level. My boys enjoyed the ping pong and other games (chess, board games) at the Dory. We especially like the smores... More

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
