We spent one night at the Nonantum Resort. It was very pleasant: our room was small but adequate and clean. We wished we had a king size bed compared to the queen:two luggage racks would have been nice. The front desk staff were all very nice and helpful. The location of the hotel was superb. Near the water but close... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to write in and share your thoughts about the Nonantum! Many fellow travelers look to Trip Advisor for suggestions about where they should stay and where they should eat so having someone who has been there, done that is a huge help! Our guests love being able to arrive in town, park their... More

The folks at the Nonantum resort truly exceeded all my expectations when I stayed there with my 2 children and our nanny. The rooms were immaculate, the scenery gorgeous, the service by the staff first class and the food amazing!!!!! While it was a short stay, I was relaxed and time really seemed to slow down. The delightful activity crew... More

My wife and I stayed at the Nonantum for 4 nights in august 2013. Our very romantic, comfortable and fantastic view corner room was on the 4th floor of in The Carriage House. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the Nonantum.

Hello Quebec Visitor! Thank you very much for the lovely review! Romantic and comfortable are two of my favorite descriptors! What more could you ask for from a resort? The Fourth Floor of the Inn is a special place! The views are really quite amazing! I have been known to sneak up there in the winter and snap a few... More

And for good reason. We recently returned from our 4th stay at the Nonantum and are looking forward to the 5th. The Nonantum has something for everyone and makes a huge effort to keep the kids entertained which is good news for all vacationers!

We recently stayed at the Nonantum for two nights with our daughter, and, despite some disappointments, overall were content with our choice. First, the positives: Beautiful grounds, with gorgeous, lush gardens and an extensive, soft lawn. The fairy garden is especially charming and was a huge hit with our seven-year-old. Relaxing and fairly quiet, despite the hotel being fully occupied... More

We stayed at the Nonantum for 3 nights in late July 2013. Everything was perfect - we had a very nice large room with a huge balcony overlooking the water. We were in the portside lodge on the second floor in room #252. Our room was the very closest to the water and had the very best views. The grounds... More

Hello Texas Friend! Perfect! Wow! What a nice review! We very much appreciate it! The gardens really are lovely all year but in mid summer they certainly hit their height of beauty! On these warm sunny Maine days with a cool breeze from the water I find it very challenging to stay in my office! I would much rather be... More

We just returned from a 5 night stay at the Nonantum Resort. The first thing my children and I noticed was the beautiful fairy garden next to the front porch. This sighting started things out perfectly for our little ones age 7 & 4. Our room was clean and very charming with a view of the marina and a fireplace.... More

The Nonantum Resort is a great place to stay when in Kennebunk. The place has a lot of history. Stayed in the Portside section which is the newer section and enjoyed it very much. Had a patio to sit out on. Was dissapointed that it overlooked the parking lot and not the gardens like it had mentioned when I booked... More

We stayed at the Nonantum this past weekend. The location right up against busy Ocean Ave was deceiving. As soon as you enter the great lobby/living room you are transported. It reminded me a little bit of the Resort in the movie "Dirty Dancing". Once we got on the grounds looking out over the water it was instantly a million... More

Hi Peter: Thank you so very much for your kind response! Our entrance is a bit deceiving isn't it?
