from start to finish everything was great! Arrived and as soon as we walked in the front door you could smell cookies baking! Stayed in cottage #2 and it was everything we wanted and more! Beautiful spacious room with the most comfortable bed ever! breakfast delivered by Judy to our door in the morning which included the best fruit cobbler... More

My fiance and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend at Maine Stay Inn for our most recent weekend getaway in Kennebunkport. The Inn keepers, Judi and Walter, were wonderful. Hospitable and friendly, they took pride in opening their home to guests and pampered us from the moment we arrived. The main house is beautifully furnished and the rooms are comfortable and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, including the nice room and most delicious breakfast. the Hauers were great hosts and willing to take the time to visit and make us feel welcome. They shared the history of the inn with us and several other guests at breakfast. This made for a very friendly atmosphere. Just like being home.

Stayed here recently for a girls weekend. Had mixed feelings about the inn. Some things were very good, rest was just average, especially considering the room was quite pricey. Stayed in cottage room 11. Room was a decent size except for the bathroom which was very small. Also very clean. In fact the smell of bleach was a little overpowering... More

We're very glad you took note of the cleanliness of your room - we work diligently with our housekeeping staff to ensure attention to those little details. That said, we rarely use bleach, but when we do, it is because another visitor has left a rather "unsavory" mess in their wake. So at times like this when complete disinfection is... More

We stayed at the Maine Stay Inn over the Labor Day weekend. It was a well-run and charming place. The room and bathroom were clean and well-kept with white sheets and towels. There was a small fireplace in the room, which was charming as well as an airconditioner, an iphone 3/4 charger and Kureg coffee machine with numerous comp refills.... More

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! While all rooms do have closet space, this particular has the smallest area, despite being quite a large room. Your feedback has been very helpful, and we are currently working to add more hanging space. Although we are very consciously not a traditional hotel, we have often thought that the automatic locking feature... More

This was a true find! The Maine Stay was, like other reviewers said, "clean, comfortable and quiet." (We stayed in the inn, not the cottages.) In addition, it was charming and relaxing. The location was perfect for us - a few blocks from the shops and restaurants and walkable to beautiful beaches. The inn keepers and staff were very friendly... More

Like many guests at Maine Stay, we are repeat customers, We really enjoy staying in the very comfortable cottages while still enjoying the true charm of a classic inn. An excellent example is the unique and totally delicious breakfast that can be enjoyed at the inn's dining area, out on the porch, or by being personally delivered to your cottage.... More

A friend and I enjoyed a one night stay at The Maine Stay Inn and Cottages when traveling through Kennebunkport. I had had a little trouble finding an accommodation for one night in one room with two beds, but The Main Stay was able to meet the requirements. We were so pleasantly surprised by the condition and cleanliness of the... More

Our first trip to Kennebunkport, ME and we chose the Maine Stay Bed and Breakfast for our two nights in the area. It is very conveniently situated near the charming town center of Kennenbunkport with their many shops and restaurants, but not so close that it will disturb a relaxing stay (3-4 blocks away). The Inn is inviting and nicely... More

We have been coming to the Maine Stay at least twice a year since the Hauer Family brought the property. Every stay just gets better. The attention to detail is fantastic. What is incredible is that they are continually improving the property-redecorating guest rooms, introducing new items on their delicious breakfast menus. The personal care and pride they take in...
