My wife and I spent two glorious days at this wonderful place. Loved everything about it. Rooms were wonderfully well cared for, bed was the best we have ever experienced, staff was great and the view of the river from our private patio was so wonderful that leaving to go elsewhere was difficult. This is one of the best places... More

We are very frequent travelers to Maine and probably have been to the Yachtsman 8 times in the past 12 years. We come to the Yachtsman because it has always been a hidden gem in an excellent location. The last two visits have the Yachtsman Lodge and Marina (YLM) showing its age. The ownership owns several other high end properties... More

We booked a 1 night stay at the end of April because the Manager was having a special rate to attract customers. Unfortunately, we were unable to keep the reservation so I cancelled 5 days prior to our arrival. Hotel management was unwilling to refund our money (they only offered for us to pay a $100 change fee for a... More

When I was 14, I started my first job as a dishwasher at the White Barn Inn in Kennebunkport. My mom worked there as head of housekeeping so every day after school, I would walk to the White Barn and do my homework. I loved that place. I was always intrigued by the staff and there was always something new... More

Kennebunkport was the midway point of a two week tour of New England and a lovely area to visit. We had reservations regarding this venue given that it looks like one step up from a motel, but chose it because of the location and would recommend others do the same. It is, however, not without it’s flaws. Just a few... More

This is a very lovely & low key hotel. It's single story, so no noise above or elevators to deal with and convenient motel style parking. Make no mistake, though, it's a "hotel" in ambience. I am a light sleeper and easily cranky with uncomfortable beds, pillows, etc. The beds were fantastic! I slept very well here. The rooms are... More

The Yachtsman is a one story, drive up motel (park in front of room) that has been nicely fixed up, with vaulted ceilings, new bath fixtures etc. Room was nice, clean, and quiet. Comfortable beds. I gave a "2" on service not because of unfriendly / unhelpful staff, but because the front desk is only staffed by one person part-time... More

Upon arrival we were taken back by the motel strip we were pulling up to. We were pleasantly suprised at the tasteful renovation the motel recieved. It has nautical theme and is very peaceful. Our room was ready a bit early so we moved right in. The view from the room was beautiful. This is a one level motel, so... More
