Loved staying at the Nonantum! We arrived the first weekend the Nonantum opened for the season and if they didn't tell you, you'd have no idea. Everything ran perfectly! There are lots of hotels that have beautiful rooms, views, bedding & every other "extra" travelers are looking for, but the staff at the Nonatum is what really makes this hotel... More

We recently spent a long weekend at the Nonantum Resort to celebrate our Ten Year Wedding Anniversary. The room had a spectacular view of the harbor, was clean and very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was a delight. I loved the coconut lime pancakes! The staff were always pleasant and helpful. We had a special gift upon our arrival and card... More

We visited from Virginia for a friend's wedding hosted at the resort in April. The entire staff from Leslie at the front desk to the folks who clean the rooms were terrific. They accommodated us with our early arrival, and Leslie even helped us locate an unusual and very specific wedding gift. I hate standing on lines. Too often, there... More

Hi Bruce: How delightful to hear of your lovely visit at The Nonantum Resort. We are so fortunate to have such an amazing staff and Leslie is one of the best! She has retired three times but we keep bringing her back (although I have told her no more retirement parties - three is enough!) I share your enthusiasm for... More

My husband and I recently went to the Nonantum as a little getaway for our 10 year wedding anniversary. Hotel was beautiful and staff was outstanding! The breakfast was outstanding also. The room was very clean and beautifully decorated. The one big negative I had was the bed! It was terrible! My husband and I both woke up several times... More

I am writing this while still at the resort- the room we have is very nice, beach decor, clean, comfortable bed, great water view. The staff has been very helpful and polite, willing to help with whatever you need. I wish we were staying longer than just the one night for the wedding, would like to relax here and explore...

Hello Jess: What a lovely initial review of our 133rd season! The first wedding of the year is always special and this group was totally lovely.

Attended November wedding held here. Wedding and reception was great. Food ok. Ground floor room was large with nice sliding doors opening onto water view. Room was cinder block and you could hear every noise next to and above you. The bathroom was very dated - old mirror with major silver loss. I expect this kind of bathroom in a... More

We stayed here and would stay here again. A fantastic base for exploring the area. Easy parking, a wonderful room overlooking the estuary and really lovely staff. In Kennebunkport? Stay here. You will not regret it.

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at the Nonantum. It's a very nice hotel with a distinctive Coastal Maine look and feel. The waterfront view from our room was gorgeous! We also enjoyed that it's located pretty close to the downtown area. We just walked everywhere. The staff was very friendly and we even got a hot breakfast... More

It really is fun to plan a little romantic getaway and have all the pieces fall together isn't it? Our Southern Maine location along the coast is really just a hop, skip and a jump from the Boston area or an hour plane ride from NYC or Philly. In this busy and crazy world, a breather in cute little Kennebunkport... More
