The Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport ME is Extraordinary. Location...OUTSTANDING. Service and attention to detail.....MAGNIFICENT. The room was nice with a wonderful view of the harbor, the staff was friendly and most sincerely helpful. When I needed personal assistance very early one morning the front desk personnel were at my door before I could take a breath. My overall satisfaction with... More

Hi Angela: Thank you so much for the very lovely review! Our staff really does go above and beyond and there never is a day that goes by that I do not observe a GEM! (Going the Extra Mile) Each season we raise the bar a bit higher and much to my delight the staff here just digs a little... More

Stayed two nights in August 2015 in a portside room on the first floor. Room location and view were very nice. We loved the very quiet AC in our clean and nicely decorated room. The resort was a wonderful quiet retreat, even when filled with guests of all ages including young children. Food was delicious, service was excellent, and shuttle... More

Great location, friendly staff and clean rooms! Although the Nonantum is an older resort, it is extremely well kept. We had a 2-room suite with a twin beds in the second room that worked great for our kids. The pool is small, but we spent more time at the beach which was only a 5-minute drive away. We look forward... More

Hello Massachusetts Friend: It sounds like you had the kind of vacation we all dream of - relaxing, close to home and worry free! Our new shuttle service is super popular for drives to the beach. What could be easier? We take you when you want to go, (no worrying about parking - or paying for it!) and we pick... More

We recently stayed at this resort. Overall our experience was great. The only draw back is the shuttle service, which clearly says it is free pick up and drop off within a 5 mile radius of the resort. We were picked up within our 5 mile radius but ended up dropping off a group of people way outside this radius.... More

A wonderful "beach" resort in a great location! Certainly not a luxury resort that you would find abroad, but the perfect beach resort for Kennebunkport! Just far enough from the middle of town that it's quiet, and still close enough to walk to everything - shops, restaurants, etc. Everyone was kind and helpful! The room was above average and we...

Hello Jersey Friend: It is hard to beat Kennebunkport in August isn't it? The weather has been magnificent this summer. Perfect for enjoying our many fun outdoor activities! The Nonantum Resort is located on a salt water river that has tides. We do not have our own beach but many are nearby and our shuttle can take you and pick... More

The Nonantum has a lot of offer; excellent location, beautiful rooms, great service and amenities. We loved the breakfast buffet, which is included and the friendly atmosphere. It is easy to get around by walking or using their free shuttle.

Greetings Albany Friend: Our location here on the banks of the Kennebunk River just a stones throw from town makes for an ideal location for vacation! Many of our guests stay "on campus" the entire time they are here. Other like to go downtown each day and enjoy the wonderful shops, galleries and restaurants. Still others head for the beaches....

Our stay was perfect at the Nonantum Resort. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. Kids nights were so much fun for the kids and the staff were fabulous. It is a wonderful place for kids to play, explore and have fun. The food at the resturant was great every night. We would highly recommend this family friendly resort.

Hi Kathleen: I am delighted to hear what a great time your family had here. Nothing is more fun for me than watching young families reconnect trying out our many activities. Kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, crabbing, boat rides, biking, movies on the lawn under the stars and of course the ever popular marshmallow are awesome activities for all! I appreciate... More
