We stayed at the Lodge on the Cove for 5 nights with our 11-month-old. We requested a room in the Juniper building, which is the furthest from the check-in/pool area, thus the quietest. It is also one story, so there was nobody staying above us. It was quiet and comfortable. We were happy to have found the Lodge on the... More

This property is newly and fabulously restored. The bar, and pool are relaxing, if without children. There is a secluded area overlooking the river away from the splashing and boisterous children, who's parents were oblivious. KW and I went here for Memorial Day weekend. The hotel offers bikes, to explore the area - what a wonderful idea. The rooms are... More

Very clean, affordable, modern accommodations in perfect location. Bikes available. Right on the cove. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast simple but filling. Hard-booked eggs, yogurt, fruit, coffee, tea, etc. Charming place. On or off season.

My wife and I stayed for one night on Saturday November 8, 2014. The checkin was fast and our room was ready when we arrived. The front desk clerk gave us maps and suggested restaurants in the area. Our room was big and cozy that the same time. We both really enjoyed our stay.

Dear Richard P., Glad that you were able to get away and relax for a stay with us. November is a quiet time of the year but a great time to visit Kennebunkport as the stores are all still open and less crowded. Hopefully you got to experience the use of our bicycles and some of our Sister Properties restaurants.... More

I couldn't have been more satisfied with our stay. We only stayed one night in the off season but it was so comfortable, modern, sophisticated yet welcoming! The staff was incredibly friendly and I felt 100 miles away yet still home!

The Lodge on the Cove is a hidden gem in gorgeous Kennebunkport. Perfect for couples or families, the amazingly designed property is located on a charming cove and includes a pool, nightly bonfire and a charming and comfortable clubhouse. Tucked just a block off of the town's famous Ocean Avenue which follows the Kennbunk River to the Atlantic Ocean, it's... More
