I booked this room last minute. The staff were so accomodating when I checked in. The room was adorable, clean, and comfortable.The breakfast was excellent. The bonfire at night was a hit with my children. The Mojito's are the BEST I ever had! I want to stay again just for the Mojito's at the pool.

Our stay at the Nonantum was a fabulous experience. Great Location for the beach or town, charming property and some of the best staff you can imagine. Room was light airy and very comfortable. The daily breakfast/brunch was fantastic with something for every taste. we hope to be back soon! Mike & Gail

Our family of 5 had a great stay on our way from Boston to Bar Harbor. Hotel is in walking distance to the town and the beach and we enjoyed walking to both.

I recently attended a family wedding at the Nonantum, and also stayed the night. The room was bright and cheerful and perfectly pleasant, but what REALLY made our stay great was the staff! Never have I stayed in a place with such a pleasant group of people working there! Everyone was accommodating and helpful, pleasant and courteous. No matter what... More

Hi Linda! Thank you for your kind words. We love weddings here at The Nonantum, and thrive off of the positive energy that wedding guests harbor. It seems that when we are joyful, our guests are too! One of my favorite things about our employees is that they have never been told that they must give "service with a smile."... More

We have been going to the Nonantum for years, and every visit is better than the previous one. There is something about the combination of waterside ambience, friendly staff, and a leisurely pace that compels you to relax. The hotel offers a great variety of family-oriented things to do, but it’s also a great place for a couple to kick... More

Welcome back Bill! Nothing humbles me more than seeing repeat guests year after year. I am thrilled that we have been able to continually raise the bar! The Nonantum staff is truly a family; employees range from warm grandmotherly types to enthusiastic teenagers, but everyone is eager to please every guest that walks through the door. We hope to see... More

This hotel was listed as #1 in KB on Trip Advisor. We did not stay in any others but I suspect that is an overrated assessment! We stayed in the PortSide (newer) building which was nice. Upon arrival, the bellman took our bags to the room--no problem. When I asked if I could get some ice he politely told me... More

Six friends shared adjoining rooms for a girls getaway. Every employee at the resort was so friendly and always had a smile. They couldn't do enough to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The location is ideal with a short walk to the shopping are, or the beach. At the restaurant, we all ordered the blueberry rack of ribs... More

We found nonantum because we often stay in elegant and upscale accommodations on vacation. With three children, we were searching for a place that had ambiance, good service, fine dining - yet also a place where our children would feel welcomed as guests. Nonantum actually finds a way to incorporate children's events and activities while at the same time allowing... More

Resort was nice, wonderful views at sunset. Very relaxing atmosphere and a short walk to town. Came for a wedding so did not bring the kids, but there were a lot of kids events and overall it was very kid friendly. We stayed in the main building where the rooms were smaller and a little outdated, I suggest requesting to... More

Hi Maisey, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! We do certainly have lots of activities for kids! Next time bring them along and hire a babysitter to watch them during the wedding reception!
