We stayed in Cottage 3 for a week and had a lovely time! The accommodations were all that we expected and more. Very clean and stocked with all the necessities. The location to town was more than great! Walking distance and a beautiful scenic walk as well. The service and attention to detail was superb! We would Highly recommend it... More

We found it just surfing the internet and then read some reviews. What a great find. We were in Cottage 1 and the other member of our group was in Room 18 in the Main Building. The entire place is clean, comfortable and well maintained. It Is an easy and delightful walk to town and the breakfast each morning is... More

Our night at the Maine Stay Inn was...okay...but the website's use of words like "exceptional" and "luxurious" had me expecting a really fantastic experience. We stayed in Garden Room 14, which had a nice deck (would have been really great to have breakfast out there, but that wasn't an option), but the room has a window air conditioning unit right...

We brought our 4 month old and having a space for her to sleep in the breakfast nook was very helpful. Plus we could sit outside while the sun went down and use the baby monitor. The breakfast they delivered was good although it could not compare to what we had at the Captain Fairfield earlier in the week. The... More

Just as with most things, receiving constructive feedback is a way to make you better, and for us that means making the guest experience even better. However, sometimes it is also important to acknowledge that some things are beyond our control, and a guest's individual choice in rooms is one of those. Every single one of our Cottage Suites has...

Great experience ! Kennebunkport is a beautiful place to be, and the Maine stay inn is a great place to stay. We had room 14, and must say it was delightful. We sat out on our private deck. Great cookies and tea, when you arrive, and every afternoon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay(s) at Maine Stay Inn. We planned on staying only two nights but ended up returning for another night on our way back to Boston. They brought us a plate of cheese, fruit and crackers because we were 'returning' customers! The bed the first stay was amazing; the second was not as comfortable, but we would... More

The Main Stay Inn in Kennebunkport, ME is a delightful respite with newly redecorated and beautifully appointed comfy cottages with fireplaces. The hosts are genuinely friendly and their hospitality shows in all aspects of the property. Breakfasts are gourmet treats - not the usual fare and the location is ideal - within easy walking distance of all the sights and... More

The service and lodging were very good. The breakfasts were good and always a bit unique. This was my first experience at a B&B and it was quite charming. You do give up a bit of dining options as opposed to ordering off of a menu. The unique experience is worth it though. I think our length of stay was... More

We loved the inn keepers Judy and Walter. Made us feel at home. And were so helpful. I actually called before the trip as it was a surprise for my husband , and I wanted wine in the room. They went to the wine store and bought it for me. They just were so helpful in making our stay so... More
