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...

A great Big Thanks to Walt and Judi Hauer. I planned a very special romantic surprise getaway to celebrate my first year anniversary with my fiancee. Everyone at the Maine Stay Inn assisted in making my celebration one of a kind. We stayed in Cottage #2 which was romantic, quaint, very comfortable and immaculate. You read in other reviews that...

The Inn was the best choice for our honeymoon. The cottage we stayed in was adorable and had everything we needed. We had breakfast delivered every morning. The staff were friendly and informative. The cottage was clean and bright, smelled great! It was a 7 minute walk to Dock Square. My husband even wants to go back and he never... More

We called this Inn checking on availability in the early evening as we passed through Maine and ended in Kennebunkport for the night. My call was answered by the owner Judi who gave me a couple of options with some very good rates. I told her we would be there shortly. When we arrived her daughter showed us our options... More
