The Yachtsman was just perfect for our quick trip to Kennebunkport. My only regret is that we did not plan a longer stay. The location is great, just a short few blocks to town and right on the river which amused my children. Private patios on the river/marina. It was a pleasant surprise to find out that early afternoon tea,... More

Once again arriving in Kennybunkport with no accommodation booked. Drove around this amazing port (holiday home to the Bush family) and came across this lovely motel right on the water and in the port. Beautiful rooms, linen, amenities and opening onto a private terrace by the water - but that's not all. Afternoon tea served from 3 - 4pm, cheese/crackers... More

When you first drive up to this 60s style motor inn, keep an open mind! Once you walk through the front door of your room, you are transported to paradise. The main room has the "spa" look and feel including a king-size bed featuring a pillow-top mattress and oodles of pillows. Our room included a large circular table with wicker... More

Continuing on from Cape Cod to Kennebunkport ME...I could not agree more with another review that it was a pearl of luxury. Soft, huge, pillowy king bed that was so comfortable it reminded me of the Westin bed. So good. Pull out sofa for the kids...room was bright and open ,clean and fresh and the French doors out to the... More

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
