We were touring the New England states to see the foliage in October and stopped overnight at Kennebunkport. We booked the Breakwater Inn & Spa online not knowing what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was warm and friendly and were very knowledgeable about the touristy things to do in the area. The room was very spacious... More

We had a room on the first floor (one above ground floor), with a deck, which provided us with wonderful views in three directions. Even though the inn covers four floors, there are no lifts! And the staircases are narrow. It appears that the whole hotel caters to couples, as no rooms with two beds ever seem to be available.... More

I loved the view and location of their restaurant - Stripers and wanted to hold my wedding there. The Wedding Coordinator said she would send me a proposal and after leaving 2 messages and a follow up email, I didn't receive anything. Not even a response from my phone calls or email. I contacted the Restaurant Manager who said she... More

We booked it on a whim as we were traveling to Bar Harbor from Boston. Location was beautiful, the staff was more than friendly and knowledgeable. They have complimentary bike rental we took up the point and into town. Short beautiful ride both ways. Rooms are large and very spa like was great views as well.

We recently spent one night at the Inn and had a wonderful mini-getaway. We walked into town and did a little window shopping. We stopped at Tia's for happy hour and one dollar oysters! Walked back and enjoyed a glass of wine in the adirondack chairs watching the sun set. Spent time in our lovely blue and white room with... More

We stayed here for 3 nights to attend a wedding. Our room was at the "inn" property on the third floor. Spacious room, nice view out the window to the river and ocean. Comfy bed. Bathroom was a bit small but updated. We enjoyed sitting in the chairs watching the water and the boats go by. Very convenient location to... More

This is our 3 rd stay at this property and all have been in the spa building, which is more contemporary than the inn. I might add that there was no recognition given to the fact that we we were repeat customers Previously, we stayed in water view king rooms, which were spacious and had a sofa and chairs for... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 35th anniversary for a 3 night stay in Maine. After reading a lot of the favorable reviews we booked at the Breakwater. Our room was a perfect size for us, clean and decorated beautifully to fit a waterside inn. The staff was very friendly and helpful, but not overbearing. We were served drinks... More
