We have stayed in several B&B's in Kennebunkport in the last 13 years. Main Stay Inn is the most accommodating facility we have stayed in. Judi and Walter have an excellent staff who try to attend to all the needs of their patrons. Dinner is always an experience in Kennebunkport and you can depend on the Main Stay owners and... More

This is, overall, a nice B&B, very well situated to "downtown" Kennebunkport (just a short walk from everything). The grounds are nice and the main house is handsome. Breakfasts were wonderful and served right on time. The only thing we were somewhat surprised at was the room. We stayed in one of the cottages with a hot tub. We found... More

Honestly, all of us at the Maine Stay find this review entirely perplexing. Based on this reviewer's description and commentary, there are only two possible suites in which she stayed - both of which have seen extensive renovation over the course of the last few years. Both suites have traditionally styled bathrooms, featuring ample woodwork, traditional vanities, and understated ceramic... More

The Innkeepers are delightful people, and their staff is just as wonderful as they are. The breakfasts are superb; the rooms are lovely, comfortable, and clean as a whistle. The Maine Stay is a wonderful "base" for exploring the area.

The Hauer's and Staff were warm and hospitable, adding to our delightful stay at the Inn. Breakfasts were yummy, and our suite was clean and well maintained.

We really enjoyed or stay, a tranquil break we truly enjoyed! Breakfast was delivered to our door, the Keurig in the room is a great touch. The room was welcoming and absolutely spotless. Judy was a font of valuable information regarding local restaurants. She really took the time and her suggestions were spot on!!We stayed in one of the cottages,... More

We have been coming to the Maine Stay for about 16 years. It's one of our favorite places. Kennebunkport is a great place to vacation, and the Maine Stay is in a very pretty area and just a short walk to Dock Square as well as Ocean Avenue (we try to get a nice early AM walk along Ocean Avenue...

We spent two nights with Walt and Judy at their lovely inn. We were in the main house in "Ann's Room." We also had the beach package - which included chairs, an umbrella, beach towels and a parking permit. The inn itself is very nice and traditional. The staff was very friendly, especially Walt who is a very engaging fellow.... More

We stayed in this B&B in late July and booked a last minute weekend getaway. We stayed in the main building upstairs and I felt our room was very small relative to the cost and compared with other B&B's. The room was clean and neat and no complaints about the overall care of the facility. The breakfast was good but... More

As the innkeeper/owner of the Maine Stay, I (and all of my staff) take pride in the quality of the experience we provide to visitors of Kennebunkport. We are proud to offer gourmet breakfasts to our guests, with offerings that you won't make at home. It is our feeling that one goes away to experience something different. That said, we... More

We (10 ladies) came to Maine for one of our friend's 50th birthday. The Maine Stay Inn was incredible and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The breakfasts were truly gourmet and there is nothing Judi and Walter could have done that they didn't do. We want to all come back with our husbands and family to... More

It was such a treat for us to have "the ladies" here for three wonderful days - you were all so lovely! We are fortunate to have a property that accommodates large parties very well and a great backyard for just relaxing, which means that we too can enjoy the infectious spirit you all brought. We can't wait to meet... More

We have stayed at B&Bs from Savannah to Bar Harbor and enjoyed the Maine Stay the most. The breakfasts are incredible, the owners and staff terrific, the rooms and grounds were immaculate (we stayed at the Inn). Great location with only a very short walk to the shops and restaurants and free passes (along with chairs, towels and umbrellas) for... More

Hi Ken! We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay, especially because we enjoyed your company so much! While we make a concerted effort to get to know all of our guests who want to know us (and not everyone does want that in their B&B experience), we felt like we truly connected with you and your wife. We hope... More
