Just came back from a 4 night stay at the hotel and I have to say I was a bit disappointed. Pros: very clean rooms and friendly staff Cons: You hear your neighbours loud and clear, it almost feels like you are sharing a room with them. I as shocked at how little, if anything, was invested in soundproofing. Another... More

Rooms were nice enough however walls were paper thin, you could hear everything in the next room. Each room had noise reduction and this kept us up all night when being played in the other room! Footsteps all night upstairs. We walked into town and looked at some of the other properties that I checked out like the Yachtsman and... More

The Lodge on the Cove is a wonderful find close to the picture perfect seafront town of Kennebunkport . The initial quaint motel layout turns out to reveal a beautifully upgraded property withy he feel of a 4 to 5 star resort . There is an incredibly relaxed atmosphere in the bar,lounge,outside restaurant and pool area. New England modern beach... More

This place is great, especially with kids. It's West Elm meets Kennebunkport. A great renovation, so clean and comfortable and well appointed. Most importantly, they have many little touches, especially for kids, many places are missing. Nice pool and good food by the pool. Room 27 is the best.

My husband and I spent the first weekend of May here, and we just loved it. It was our first visit to the Lodge, but I hope it won't be the last. A charming, secluded location, that is still just over a mile from the center of town. Attention to detail is evident everywhere here. The rooms (in what was... More

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
