All was cozy and friendly. Stayed in the gate house in a small but nice and comfortable room. Nice breakfast and perfect location. Be prepared to climb stairs with you suitcases if you book late like we did. Oh well, we needed the exercise anyway!

We were booked to stay at this property as part of a 3 week tour of New England. On arrival the initial welcome was warm and the lounge looked cosy and inviting. Sadly this was all we got to see!!

My daughter, daughter-in-law, and I stayed for one night at the lodge and couldn't have been more pleased! We were greeted by Barbara who was so kind and helpful and told us to make ourselves at home. We had the entire first floor to ourselves, which included a warm fire in the fireplace and cozy seating. As we had stopped... More

My girlfriend and I spent 2 nights last weekend at the old fort inn. Neither of us had been to Kennebunkport and wanted a relaxing, quiet weekend with a few things to do. Old fort inn was great for this. We stayed in the king grand room. The room was spacey, immaculately clean, and had a nice mix of modern... More

What a lovely place - nice rooms - pleasant people all was really fine and then came the breakfast. Cheerios, cornflakes, plastic bread, old fruit. Really very poor and not at all the quality one would expect of such an elegant and beautiful place. If they get this detail worked out I would go back'

It is in the heart of Kennebunk and convenient to all the sights. The room was lovely and the grounds lovely. I liked it but I got a great deal so otherwise I don't think I could afford too many nights there...

This is a very well managed, clean and relaxing property. Staff is excellent, and location is in a quiet peaceful residential area, minutes from the main road to town. Although it is residentially located, it is isolated from neighboring properties. It is a great location for a group to get away to. We traveled in the fall, and I can... More

We stayed here in July for a couples getaway. We were very pleased with the location of this inn - it is in a beautiful residential area away from the hustle and bustle of town and the main beach area. It is quiet and peaceful and while in a wooded area is mere blocks from the ocean. We loved the... More
