Clearly the rooms have been recently remodeled. Décor is bright, fresh and clean, with high ceilings and massive sliding glass windows that look out on the river. King bed was covered with a duvet...very comfortable. Space is ample and bathrooms are remodeled nicely. The walk to town is easy. We were happy to be away from the hubbub of Christmas... More

In many minds 'motel' means down-market accomodation. The Yachtsman is anything but down-market. Huge rooms tastefully decorated, enormous king size beds, fluffy duvets and cosy terry-toweling bath robes; each room's French windows give on to private terrace at the Kennebunk River's edge. We had our evening drinks outside watching the sun setting behind the spectacular foliage accross the water. Morning... More

During an autumn foliage tour in New England we happened to come accross this beautiful spot just as darkness fell. What we saw from the roadside as traditional motel, turned out to be a ideally located pearl of luxury and comfort never before experienced in the motel-world. Stunning view directly on the marina and boats, sunrise terrace with visitng ducks,... More

After being disappointed by what was on offer in Portland, we drove on to Kennebunkport, expecting things to be mega expensive. Not so, Yachtsman cost $15 less than Portland would have done. Fantastic vista backing on to river, marina there, and the most comfortable bed I've experienced in the USA. A real find

This was fabulous-so much nicer than the larger hotels, the rooms have French doors opening out to the grass-about 12feet from the harbour river with all the super yachts and boats. Plus the staff were fabulous-great breakfast, the in the afternoon and port,brandy and cheese before dinner if you wish. All for a Very reasonable price. It was quiet, large... More

This lodge looks like a roadside inn from the road, but the view of the front of the rooms is the Kennebunk River! We loved the small marina right outside our room - it was so picturesque to watch the boats coming in each evening! The guest rooms are attractively decorated in a simple nautical style, enhancing the experience. The... More

We love this place. It's slightly out of town but within walking distance of wonderful galleries and shops. Being right on the river is VERY peaceful and relaxing. The ducks and geese come right up to you looking for "treats." Very fun. When we first started staying here a number of years ago it had just been converted from a... More

This is a elegant fly-below-the-radar place, amazingly quiet for being only two blocks from Kennebunkport's Dock Square. Looking like not much more than a well-landscaped motel from the road, it simplicity belies lots of plusses that make the price totally worthwhile: An ample breakfast with enough to make a sandwich for lunch (ham, cheese, bread, hard-boiled eggs), tea time featuring...

The staff was so friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated on the banks of the Kennebunkport River and the boats are docked outside your room and it is a beautiful setting. The walls in the rooms are beaded board in a subtle tastefully done nautical theme. They had a nice breakfast in the morning followed by tea in the... More

This place was great! The room was nice and clean! The afternoon reception of port and cognac was a nice way to relax in one of the adirondack chairs. The continental breakfast was very nice also. I would definitely stay there again!
