This hotel reminds me of the old traditional hotel where you go and it has everything to offer and you never have to leave. There is a restaurant, pub, pool, activities for kids and adults, lobster boat, sailing cruise, wave runners, kayaks, etc. The room was updated, although the bathroom was a little small. The hotel is 0.7 miles from... More

Hi Eddie: It is wonderful to hear that you had such a nice time at The Nonantum Resort! There is just so much to see and do that a 1 day stay just will not do! You need to come back so you can really check things out! As far as the parking lot view is concerned, rooms that have... More

What a delightful hotel! Unbelievably sweet, caring staff; if I'd asked for the moon, they would have made valiant attempts to pluck it from the sky. Immaculate rooms. Reasonable fee for kayak rentals = with comfortable kayaks. A;l sorts of activities for kids, who were obviously having fun. Boat rides we didn't have time to take. Breakfast buffet was varied,...

Hi Jill: What a lovely review. Thank you so much! My favorite line was "Unbelievably sweet, caring staff; if I'd asked for the moon, they would have made valiant attempts to pluck it from the sky." Does it get any nicer than that? Your observation "No glitz" is perhaps the understatement of the year. We are a traditional Maine Resort... More

This was an excellent hotel stay, the staff was incredible and the overall experience was wonderful. Lots of bellhops were always available and everyone was super friendly. Our bill had a mistake when we went to check out, but they fixed it right away. Highly recommended.

My wife and I only stayed one night. However, I am sure we will be back to enjoy the relaxing view, friendly staff and comfortable room in the future for several days.

HI Ed: We will look forward to your return trip! Hopefully you will be able to stay a lot longer than 1 day! There are just so many things to do and see in Kennebunkport - or if you want to just relax in the sunshine and watch the boats go by that is fine too! It is hard to... More

When ever you travel it's always a gamble booking a hotel. We couldn't have been happier with this resort. It's location gives you all of the charm you are looking for in Kennebunkport. Close enough to all of the sights, yet you still have the beauty of the Maine coast nearby. The staff is beyond friendly, and rooms were very... More

If you're considering visiting Southern Maine and the Kennebunkport area, you should check out the Nonantum. We have stayed there many times over the years and believe it has the righth combination of Maine authenticity with the features we've all come to expect when traveling.

The resort was nice, but the room was extremely small. Realizing this is Kennebuckport but I felt it was a bit pricey. We were given, at an increases room rate, a scenic view of the river, not worth the extra rate. It is very clean, the staff extremely friendly just did not feel room was worth the cost

Hi Cliff: I am so sorry you were disappointed by our pricing. Kennebunkport in the summertime is expensive! I am sure if you check around you will find other water view resorts all command the type of pricing you experienced. On the positive side of the ledger, you noted that the hotel is very clean and the staff extremely friendly.... More

The Nonantum stands at the perfect distance from major destination points. It is halfway the distance from downtown Kennebunkport to the sea, offering a balance between the two in terms of walking distance. The property is splendid and offers picturesque views of the Kennebunk River. Take advantage of the hotel-dedicated sailboat (the Pineapple Ketch) and its skipper - the trip... More

Hello Lawrence: The Pineapple Ketch is a super relaxing way to spend an afternoon. The Skipper has wonderful stories and the views from the water are much different than they are from the street. During your next visit you may want to try out the Rugosa, a lobster boat that leaves from our Marina or the Libreti, a fishing boat... More
