We stayed here for one night in august and the room was excellent, the staff were very friendly and the restaurant food was very good. Kennebunkport is an excellent place to stay and explore New England. Breakfast at the general store in town is a must.

Went to Nonantum for a Prelude weekend and stayed at the Nonantum. The room was great with views of the water. We were not in the main hotel but that was decorated so beautifully for Christmas. Our building had a lovely Christmas tree and when we got back there was a Christmas movie playing in the foyer which we sat... More

Hi Vivian: Happy New Year! How wonderful you were able to join us for the second weekend of Christmas Prelude. At one time the second weekend was kind of an afterthought, but as you noted, the second weekend of Prelude is a ton of fun! Several local businesses have told us they are actually more busy the second weekend than... More

My daughter was married here this year. They did a fabulous job! I have been here for many different events and I have also been impressed with how hard the special events crew works to make the events special. We have stayed there numerous times. I prefer the main lodge, however, the rooms in the modern building have spectacular views.... More

We have driven by the place for years, rented houses and stayed in many other places in the Kennebunks area, but this time we could not turn down their fall special. What a nice surprise.

Hello Montreal Friend: Well we certainly are excited that you finally decided to stop! The Nonantum is a bit deceiving from the road (the view from the water shows us off to our best advantage!) Many of our guests comment on our lovely grounds and views of the pretty boats that pass by our grounds. Please come back in the... More

Last night of our tour and they saved the best for last. Beautiful setting. Beautiful Older hotel with updated rooms. The room was comfortable and charming had a free standing gas fireplace. Bathroom is a little tight but hey I was focused on the view. Staff was friendly and helpful and management welcoming. I want to go back.

We stayed at the Nonantum to enjoy Christmas Prelude. Our room was a lovely port side room with a king bed. The room overlooked a picturesque and serene ocean view. Our room was very comfortable with cozy linens and plenty of pillows. Everyone we encountered on staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Vicky, who helped us many times over the weekend... More

A wonderful North East resort. We celebrated a wedding during the Christmas prelude weekend. The resort and town were a perfect backdrop. We had a gas fireplace that made the room very cozy.

From the moment you arrive, being greeted by the Front Desk Associate who was very friendly and helpful, to the friendly and interactive Manager Michael LaRiviere, to anybody and everybody else who offers assistance, the entire stay was a wonderful experience. Although the Inn is on the larger side, it still feels private and quaint. The food is Excellent, and... More

A lovely resort. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was comfortable with a great view of the" inlet of water." Our room had a gas stove which made it very cozy! There were some maintenance issues I saw such as paint chipping outside and new caulking in the bathroom, but overall it was well maintained.
