My wife and I have been staying at the Nonantum for Memorial Day weekend for the past eight years. It is a wonderful place to stay in the Norman Rockwell like Town of Kennebunkport. The rooms are nice with wonderful water views. All services are excellent as well. And the highlight is always the breakfast - plenty of good food... More

Hi Wes: Memorial Day is such a wonderful holiday in Kennebunkport! Our little seasonal community has shaken off the cobwebs, everywhere you look is fresh paint and our college kids have just arrived back on the scene ready for another fun summer! The parade is the highlight of the weekend and with President and Mrs Bush always in attendance, you... More

A friend and I stayed at the Nonantum for 3 nights last week. It was the perfect spot: close to everything yet it's own quiet retreat. The room was comfortable with a lovely view water view. Breakfast was outstanding (I am celiac and the chef prepared me special meals that were delicious), the service excellent, and everyone (guests and staff)... More

We stayed the Nonantum for my niece's wedding last weekend. The public areas are pretty and traditional New England with beachy/marine theme decor, located about a 5 minute walk from Kennebunkport's quaint downtown area. We had a two-room suite which had a queen bed in one room and two twins in the other and a small well-stocked kitchenette which we... More

Hello! Thanks so much for taking the time to write about your recent visit!

I will make certain we have additional lights added to the room. I will also have the mirror replaced. Thank... More

We arrived late on Friday to find a loud party going on at the hotel! We were worried about the noise, but by 11, everything was quiet. The breakfast was not that great, not many options and overall not delicious. There was no healthy option. However, the staff was very friendly, the French-speaking Michael! The room was cosy. We did... More

We arrived late, by Kennebunkport standards anyway, and give a room in the Portside Lodge with a water view and a balcony. The room was very nicely appointed and very "homey". The bed was fantastic and we slept very well. The bathroom had a touch we had never seen before. In addtion to the cute wooden cabinets on the wall,... More

This is a very nice place right on the water. We took a boat trip right from their dock to learn how to catch crab. Every morning you can watch the boats go out to sea. You can walk into town to the little shops and restaurants too.

Hello Always Wright! Thanks for your nice review! I'd have to agree, you are always wright! :-) Crab catching is one of the most popular ways to pass a day in our Activities Program.

We found The Nonantum on the internet in a last-minute search for an early September getaway and are very glad we did.

Nonantum resort is in a quiet location within walking distance of Kennebunkport. Staff are very friendly and seem to have time for everyone. The place has a very relaxed feeling about it. The building is slightly quirky. For instance the elevator was manufactured in the 1930s I understand and can only be operated by a member of staff. The rooms... More
