Dear Andrew, Glad that you returned to Kennebunkport for a visit! Thank you for your recommendations; it’s always nice for travelers to hear firsthand accounts of the memorable times people had. For some people looking at a map it does look like we are further away from town than people would like, but you are right, knowing the lay-of-the-land we... More

Our recent three night stay at the Lodge was fine. That's about all I can say, which is sad for a place that is so expensive. Its best feature was the absolute cleanliness of our rooms. We also liked the reasonably priced, good quality food at the Dory snack bar by the pool. The staff was accommodating. Location was great... More

Dear Sisterbay716, I am sorry to hear that you were not fully satisfied with your stay at the lodge on the cove. You are correct in stating that we are located on a tidal cove; we do not advertise or state that we are located on the ocean or beach. The cove is a small recess off the Kennebunk River... More

Clean rooms, super soft pillow and comfy beds, attentive, friendly staff. Family Friendly. The continental breakfast was fresh. The bartender was very nice. The pool was chilly but the kids stayed in for hours anyway. Played some ping pong and corn hole. Close and convenient drive to downtown. Thanks for having us!

Old motor lodge recently renovated with a hipster vibe. Fun lounge, amazing lobster sliders and yummy drinks. Rooms were small, but clean and lodge in biking distance to many things (easy ride to downtown Kennebunkport shops). Very friendly staff, great value for the price.
