My husband and I were on a Caravan Tours bus tour of New England, and this was our last stop...what a wonderful way for our tour to end. Not only was this a superb place to stay, but every aspect of it was wonderful! Location, right on the banks of the river, friendliness of staff, not to mention the coziness... More

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.

We had the opportunity to spend the night at the Nonantumand we delighted with every aspect of the resort. Our room was beautifully decorated to reflect a beach retreat. Crisp linens and soothing blue walls enhanced it's beauty. Our room overlooked the water making it extra special. The staff was friendly and eager to assist. We especially like the fact... More

Hello Lynne: That is the best suggestion I have heard in a while! Tell the staff what you are looking for because you are absolutely correct - there are lots of options here at The Nonantum! Nothing makes me feel worse than when I read that someone didn't get what they wanted while they were here, so Lynne your idea... More

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

We stayed here for one night in November and never wanted to leave. Our rooms were beautiful and completely different from each other. We were in the antique looking room surrounded by beautiful furniture and carpeting, while my sister and her husband were in a beautifully decorated beachy room with white furniture and wood floors. There was no question about... More

What a beautiful weekend we had at the Nonantum Resort! The property was beautiful and perfectly maintained, and the service was exactly what you'd want. The breakfast was delicious as well.

What a lovely time we had at the Nonantum for my daughter's wedding reception. They did such an excellent job. Could not have asked for a more professional, caring, kind staff that went above and beyond our expectations. Many of the wedding guests came from Oklahoma and had never been to New England, let alone MAINE. They were floored at... More

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.

Hi Vivian: Happy New Year! How wonderful you were able to join us for the second weekend of Christmas Prelude.
