This lodge has a great location whether you have a car or a boat. If you have neither, like us, it is only a 5 minute walk into the centre of the town. Each room has a car parking space immediately outside its main door. Reception is only staffed during 'daylight hours' after that you need to contact the Duty... More

As noted in other property reviews, I consider myself a ‘hotel’ snob’ – so I was a bit concerned about my recent stay at the Yachtsman. Upon arrival, I knew immediately my fears/concerns were unfounded. As other reviewers indicate, this is an older property, however it has been upgraded and is extremely clean. Granted the rooms are not on the... More

The lodge has everything for enjoying the best of this part of the Maine coast. A perfect getaway with the opportunity to relax or go exploring. The staff are very keen to help with recommendations for making your visit memorable. We are looking forward to returning!

Our room was on the very end so we didn't have anyone next to one side of our room. The couple on the other side was very quiet. I'm not sure how quiet it would have been,( as the Lodge is a little long in tooth), if we had roudy neighbors. The room was very clean and well equipped with... More

We have been visiting Kennebunkport for 15 years and have stayed in many of the beautiful inns in this quaint nautical seaside town, but this is by far our favorite place to stay. We've now stayed at the Yachtsman several times and it has become our absolute favorite place to stay. Whether Spring, Summer or Fall, each stay is absolute... More

My wife and I had a terrific 3 night get away over the July 4th weekend at the Yachtsman. We've been here several times in the last few years, and once again, the location and the friendly and highly attentive staff did not disappoint. Rooms are well equipped, very nicely furnished and impeccably clean. Beautifully situated on the Kennebunk River,... More

We stayed here 5 years ago and again recently. The grounds, view, and continental breakfast are great however our room could have used a little "help" this time around (particularly the bathroom). There was moldy grout in the shower and mold on the ceiling above the sink. The bathroom door and trim needed a coat of paint too. We were... More

Clean rooms, Great views, Wonderful wait staff. Walking distance to town. Great breakfast. If your lucky might see President George Bush Sr get onto his boat right in front of hotel. The room prices are very reasonable.

We checked in when the tide was in, and the water in the marina was just about 10 feet from the sliding glass door that opened from the bedroom to the outside. The view as we sat on the small patio was picturesque--like something you would see on a calendar. The lodge is older, but maintained great (updated, with all... More

We absolutely loved the 3 days we spent here. The rooms are right on the water and you can sit outside your room and watch the boats, the canoes and the ducks go by, which is incredibly fascinating and relaxing. You can also sit out on the lawn closer to reception if you want to be closer to other people.... More
