The Nonantum Resort never fails to exceed our expectations for a great weekend trip to Kennebunkport! The staff are pleasant, the rooms are clean and comfy and the breakfast is always tasty. This year's Fire and Ice event was great fun. The pub on the first floor adds a nice touch for a night cap after exploring the quaint downtown... More

Hello Lindy! Thanks so much for your kind remarks! Heckman's Pub is super popular for a night cap among our guests. Did you know we also serve a great pub menu in there as well? Many of our summer guests enjoy sitting on the porch in front of Heckman's and loving the wonderful Maine summers. Perhaps you can visit us... More

We've stayed here every year for the past 6 years for the Christmas Prelude. The hotel is always so beautifully decorated and the staff, despite the fully booked hotel, is always very friendly, helpful and cheerful. The hotel is an easy walk to Dock Square and all of the shops which is especially nice since parking is very limited. Also,... More

Wow! 6 years in a row! Thank you so much! I really appreciate your ongoing support! It is a crazy time of year for us but I think our staff really enjoys all the fun Christmas brings to Kennebunkport! Have you ever considered coming at another time of year? Fall is my personal favorite with the beautiful crisp air and... More

This was my third time at Fire & Ice, but my first time staying at the hotel. Although the weather might not have been ideal for an ice event (54 degrees), the Nonantum went out of their way to making the overnight magical. We had a complimentary lighthouse print and shaker pint glass in our room for each of the... More

I am delighted to hear you had a great first visit at The Nonantum! It was quite a trick to pull off an ice bar weekend with balmy temps but as always the Nonantum elves threw out a bit of pixie dust and made the magic happen. It is so much fun to be part of such a wonderful team!... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Nonantum Resort. The hotel was beautifully decorated for the holidays, and had a warm and friendly atmosphere. The Fire & Ice event was spectacular! The music was great, the ice sculptures amazing, and the food tasty! A great way to get into the spirit of the season! The buffet breakfast in the morning... More

Hello Lisa: I have to agree with you! The decorations we have over the holidays are just magnificent! Our groundkeepers, gift shop staff and florists spend a solid month decorating and decorating some more to get ready for Christmas Prelude! It is different every year and beautiful every year! Love their work! Please come and see us again! Kind Regards,... More

The hotel is one of the true gems of the seacoast...a true original that has been impeccably maintained. Close enough to walk to Dock Square (there was also a shuttle available) the Nonantum has amenities that make you question why you would ever want to leave the resort. We stayed during Christmas Prelude and attended the Fire and Ice event... More

Hello Boston Friend! We had a lot of people rebook for next year before they left like you did. I take that as the ultimate compliment! Thank you very much!

We had the good fortune of staying at the Nonantum during the second night of their 6th Annual Fire & Ice event. From the get-go, the staff was welcoming, warm and kind. Our room overlooked the courtyard thus we could see the festivities and of course the beautiful water. It was an impressive event that was truly fun and spectacular.... More

We have been to hotels all over the world. Some have been more posh, some have had more spectacular views, some had reputations for their fine dining and some were touted for hosting celebrities.

The staff members which we interacted with were very kind and friendly. The property is lovely...the main lodge especially, but the dorm type building we were given a room in was less than expected.
