We just returned from a short vacation to Kennebunkport, Maine. Stayed at the Rhumb Line Resort. This resort is a short drive to Kennebunkport. Four family members stayed in 2 queen rooms, ground level, pool side. Mom, dad, adult son and his fiancé. Rooms were next door to each other. We spent early mornings and evenings sitting outside these rooms... More

I grew up coming to the Rhumb Line with my little brother & family during our school April vacations. Have been many times since and introduced my wife's family here. We got engaged on goose rocks beach so this area & the rhumb line have a special place in our hearts. Melony & Kate are very accommodating at reception desk... More

This is going to be a long review. But the short version is that we were given a room we clearly did not book and told that it WAS the room when we pointed out the differences. We were charged for the room we did not get and the place is dated and overpriced overall. We booked a room in... More

The stay was just alright for the price that we had to pay. It was clean and decent but my wife had some issues with the service but not about the physical aspects of the hotel itself. I'm not going to go into details in this post and will keep it short and sweet.

We recently stayed for 2 nights and overall had a good stay. The midweek special price included breakfast as well as a gift certificate for their restaurant. Our room was a little outdated but they were trying to make some updates and overall it was quiet and clean. There was a small balcony which overlooked the pool/restuarant area. It is... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. I do know that our Admiral's Table gets a bit busy at certain times, especially when orders for our Downeast Feast Lobster Bakes are added to the mix. Because we serve everything fresh, including our great fries, it takes more time. Sorry you... More

We have visited this resort many times and have found it an excellent value. The resort, however, allows locals to use the swimming pool for a members fee. This weekend that practice was problematic. The indoor pool was closed for maintenance and the outside pool was overcrowded with non-guest members who were rowdy and loud, ignoring all the pool rules.... More

We tried to make the indoor pool maintenance project as convenient as possible. We waited until the outdoor pool was opened and heated before we closed the indoor pool. We are sorry for the rainy day, but unfortunately, we had no choice. We limit our memberships each summer to a certain number so as not to have too many at... More

As a long time visitor of Kennebunkport, words cannot describe how great this establishment is. The management is top notch, and went out of their way to help me out. Just minutes away from downtown, and in a secluded spot you cannot ask for more!

We were welcomed to the Rhumb Line Resort by extremely helpful and friendly front desk staff--Kathy and Kathy! The room was a nice size--very clean, with two queen beds, and a separate sink/dressing area from the w/c and shower. The small fridge was a nice bonus. The "more mature" Kathy recommended a few places for dinner---even offered to make a... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us a very nice review of your stay. We try very hard to make everyone feel welcomed and comfortable. Our summer is in full swing with the Admiral's Table now open. Our indoor pool is being fitted with new flooring. More rooms are being up-dated. I hope we see you again soon. More

I came here because I found a coupon in a hotel guide, and had an enjoyable stay at a great price, which they were kind enough to honor for two nights. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable of the area, and recommended some nice drives and restaurants. The breakfast was average,and my king matress seemed due for an upgrade,which is... More

I would recommend the Rhumb Line resort to anyone who is looking to get away and relax but be close to the water and the ports in Kennebunkport. The room we stayed in was very well kept up. The front desk staff was polite, nice and very knowledgeable about the area. She suggested a new restaurant in town called the... More
