We found The Nonantum on the internet in a last-minute search for an early September getaway and are very glad we did. The location was perfect - short walk downtown, short drive to Goose Rocks Beach and Cape Porpoise, and access to an afternoon sail on a ketch right on the property. Our lovely room was waterside, with a view... More

Nonantum resort is in a quiet location within walking distance of Kennebunkport. Staff are very friendly and seem to have time for everyone. The place has a very relaxed feeling about it. The building is slightly quirky. For instance the elevator was manufactured in the 1930s I understand and can only be operated by a member of staff. The rooms... More

We stayed at the Nonantum resort for a weekend in November 2013. It's a lovey place to stay. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Our room had a nice view of the cove. Our breakfast was included an it was excellent. It was my husband's birthday and they left a small box of chocolates for him in our room.... More

Hello Life Is Good Friend: Life really is good in Kennebunkport at The Nonantum, isn't it? November is actually our quietest month and many, like you, come in November specifically because of this fact! As you said, walking to town (and maybe getting a head start on your Christmas shopping) is lovely in November. The beaches are deserted, and as... More

My guest room was a river view room located in the building next to the inn. The building and guest rooms reminded me of an upscale motel. First impression of room: the decor; the drapes and bed spread consisted of a palm tree motif. And this is Maine! How about a moose, duck or pine tree motif. The bathroom was... More

We stayed for one night on our trip around New England. The resort is set in some lovely grounds and is in a great location for exploring Kennebunkport. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and a great start to the day.

This year we decided to come for Fire and Ice. It was truly amazing. Everything was perfect right down to the snow. The stay at the Nonantum was once again perfect. So much to do all weekend.

We stayed in the Newer river view rooms, which I was glad when we drove up and saw the age of the original hotel. It definitely gives a false sense of amenities on line. Found it overpriced, freezing and lacking great service for the inflated offseason rates. (We stayed at a 5 star resort last weekend for less money, with... More

We went to the breakfast with Mrs Claus hoping to recreate the wonderful time we had last year. Unfortunately, we were disappointed! The buffet was definitely not worth the price with little to choose from. No omelet station and we were told that would be offered next week with Santa Claus being there. Definitely was not a kid friendly breakfast!... More
