My husband and I just returned from four nights in the Captains Fireplace Suite and could not be happier. The inn is lovely, breakfast was delicious, and the location can't be beat. I would definitely recommend this inn to family and friends.

We loved the cottage- comfortable bed, clean and cute. It reminded us of years ago when we traveled as children and you could rent a cottage. It has a small kitchen. Good breakfast is served at the "big" house and the staff is very friendly.

My husband and I recently spent four nights in Cottage #7 and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The cottage was very comfortable, immaculate and well thought out. The breakfasts that were served varied every day and were exceptional. Judy and Walter and all the staff are friendly, helpful and humorous. We intend to return!

My husband and I stayed 3 days/2 nights during our honeymoon, and everything was perfect. The rooms were immaculate and stylish. Breakfast was plated service every morning and featured a fruit cup, homemade granola, and a delicious main entree. The Maine Stay is in a beautiful residential neighborhood only a few short blocks from the center of Kennebunkport so my... More

We had a lovely three night stay over the Memorial Day weekend. I loved having a two room suite (#16). The bed was super comfortable, there was a flat screen tv in each room and a small fridge to store drinks. The room was also equipped with silverware, dishes, wine glasses, corkscrew etc. Breakfast was delicious. We opted to have... More

It is within walking distance of the town stores and restaurants. The inn serves a delicious breakfast with your stay. The Inn keepers do everything to make you feel at... More

kportinnkeepers, Owner at Maine Stay Inn and Cottages, responded to this review

I am so glad that these guests enjoyed their stay., but I wonder what they meant by their expression "Maine decor". These guests stayed in our most recently renovated room and it is traditionally designed, but perhaps they would have preferred something with beach colors or even knotty pine. All of our rooms are uniquely different and while we have... More

Upon arrival we were greeted like long lost friends and the hospitality continued for the duration of our stay. Beautiful room & delicious food. Short walk to great restaurants and shopping. Close to several beaches where the sand is like baby powder.

Owners of Inn are wonderful. This was our eighth visit to this Inn. Walter and Judy were fabulous hosts. Johanna, their daughter was very friendly and pleasant to speak to during our visit. We stay four days there every year.
