This year I stayed at the Cottage behind the Inn. This is called the Woodbine Cottage and sits directly on the property. It is a lovely little cottage for two with a queen size bed. It had a full kitchen and bath. A lovely sitting area, kitchen table and chairs. A cute patio with a gas grill. It also has... More

We decided to drive to Kennebunkport and stay overnight. We made no plans in advance and decided to wing it. We spent a delightful day sightseeing and decided to look for a place to stay around 5:30pm on Saturday night. Many places had no vacancies, those that did were expensive. Drove by the Harbor Inn and decided to call. They... More

Looking for a last minute getaway in Kennebunkport, we found the Harbor Inn from Trip Advisor. We were mildly apprehensive because of the limited pictures on the inn's website, but the price of a room was fair, we knew the location was perfect, and we trusted the reviews so we booked with Kathy for 3 nights. We wound up staying... More

We happened upon the Harbor Inn on Google Maps because we were going to Kennebunkport for a wedding and the Nonantum, where most other guests were staying, was full. Harbor Inn is a lovely antique home right on Ocean Ave within a 10 minute walk of downtown Kennebunkport. The owner runs it herself. She lives onsite and does all of... More

There was no room in the other inns and what a fortunte happenstance. We stumbled across Harbor Inn and were delighted we did. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was yummy too. Owner run places in posh Kennenbunkport appear to be a dying breed. Having lived in Kennenbunkport and been a long standing member of the local community, Kathy... More

Having tried hotels in Kennebunkport, my Husband and I decided to try a bed and breakfast for a change. Our stay at The Harbor Inn didn't leave us disappointed. Kathy the landlady was a delight to have a conversation with, and her knowledge of the Kennebunk area pointed us in the right direction to make the most of our stay.... More

Prior reviews led my husband and I to The Harbor Inn. What a charming place located in the heart of Kennebunkport. We loved the location on Ocean Drive. So close to dining and shopping you can walk but far enough away for quiet and privacy. The B & B is beautifully furnished with period furniture, which we love. Your host,... More

Just how lucky were we that all the other hotels in the town were fully booked and we were able to stay at the Harbor Inn at Kennebunkport. Kathy made us very welcome, and our room was lovely, very traditional, clean and welcoming. We had breakfast included in the price, which was a nice surprise. Would recommend staying at the... More

Stayed here while we were in Maine for a wedding in July and had a wonderful experience. The owners are extremely friendly and personable, the location is great and the breakfast was very nice. The rooms are very clean and have everything you need, though the bed was a bit creaky. The biggest plus of this place was the value... More

We stayed at the Harbor Inn the 6,7 and 8th of July. We were attending a wedding at the River Club just down the street. The first thing we did was meet Kathy Jones Owner and Proprietor. The great experience started there. Having grown up summers and lived for a while in town , I found we shared many of... More
