Absolutely wonderful! I loved this place so much! I live just outside of NYC and the 5.5 hours drive was totally worth it. Rooms are immaculate!!! The hotel does these cute little refreshments throughout the day. A great breakfast in the morning- great keish! Tea/coffee, cake and cookies in the afternoon- great lemonade too!!! Then around 6pm they served brandy... More

Lodging at the Yachtsman Inn was good - not amazing, but certainly charming. More like a motel, that did not detract from the experience. I saw the photos online and knew the basic layout. The rooms do face the Kennebunk River, but low tide or high tide, there was not much water on the area where most rooms faced. The... More

Outstanding location. Great view of the channel. Nice breakfast daily. Very dog friendly where they didn't make you feel it was an inconvenience to have a dog. The staff was accommodating and friendly as well. The amenities were somewhat updated but no wifi in the rooms only common areas. Loved the vintage feel of the property. Definitely would return.

Having stayed here at least five times over the past decade, it is obvious the facilities are becoming dated. Carpets are dirty, the bathroom is minuscule and outdated, the air conditioning is very difficult to control as it is located almost in the bathroom, and worst of all there is no wifi in the rooms. Staff remains very helpful and... More

Kennebunkport! Beautiful waterfront location, large rooms, dog friendly,and air conditioning all make this an ideal place to stay. The location is perfect- an easy walk to the town shops and restaurants. We very much enjoyed sitting by the waterfront at night by the fire. Also we appreciated the assigned parking spot by your room which made loading and unloading simple.... More

We stayed one night at the Yachtsman (improved motel) and we liked it very much especially for its location: perfectly located as walking distance from the shops and restaurants without being in a crowded area, great view from the rooms on the water and the harbour. The rooms are fine though the bathroom is on the small side. Our room... More

This was such a great place to stay, so central and so comfy! The beds are the best ever and I found it hard to get up every morning. The location is right near town, with free bike rental as well you can get anywhere. It is so peaceful and quiet with free parking, would recommend for sure!!

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!
