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

Our family loved Lodge on the Cove so much! Kennebunkport is such an amazing destination, friendly people, beautiful downtown, great food. We were amazed at the hospitality at Lodge on the Cove. In the evening there was a fire pit with marshmallow S'mores to roast by the fire. The main lobby, reception area is full of games and books. Our... More

My boyfriend and I just got back from a stay in Kennebunkport at the Lodge on the Cove, and had such a wonderful time. We arrived a little before check-in time, and the staff were able to find us a room right away. They also helped us with suggestions for lunch and how to get around. The lobby area, clubhouse...

Dear Katie T., Thanking you for sharing your thoughtful words with other travelers. We are always willing to check anyone into their room prior to check in time if the room is ready to go. The lodge is closely located to town so it is either a quick walk or bike ride away to get to all of the shops... More

From the first phone call to book the room to final check-out we could not ask for nicer staff. We booked due to seeing this on Living Social and took the chance. We arrived late on a Friday evening and the person checking us in was wonderful. There was a fire going in the fire pit so we went on... More

We spent a weekend at The Lodge and I'm already looking forward to booking some time in 2015. I thought the rooms were super big, very clean and very inviting.
