really friendly staff, lovely resort, beautiful setting, lots of activities planned, short walk to kennebunkport which is gorgeous, really cute. our downside was the Sleep quality, you could literally hear everything from the rooms on either side and above, not very appropriate for a family, but however overall it was Very good, turn down service and chocolates were great.

This really is a resort that focuses more on families. There are no adults only activities for anyone who doesn't desire to deal with other people's children. Food is mediocre and very pricey. The elevator in the older building needs a full time attendant. It isn't easy for everyone to go up 4 flights of stairs. Kennebunkport doesn't cater to... More

Hi Kate: I am sorry you had a less than fantastic time at The Nonantum! It sounds like maybe the town of Kennebunkport did not put their respective best foot forward! How unfortunate some of the locals did not make you feel at home! My apologies! I am surprised to read you thought we only had activities for children. In... More

The Nonantum never ceases to amaze us. We have been coming here for many years and each year we love it even more. The staff is amazing, the food delicious, the rooms are clean and bright, the whole atmosphere is fabulous. The children's activities are a wonderful way for the children to have some time to do what they love... More

Following, for us, our rather disappointing stay in Belfast, we decided to spoil ourselves and stay one night en route to Boston at the Nonatum. We were not disappointed. It is a lovely hotel (not sure about the “resort” bit!), right on the waterway, and the staff could not have been nicer bearing in mind that we booked it only... More

Hello 007 So glad you had an enjoyable time here at The Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport! Even in the rain the grounds are beautiful and many a guest has shared with me that like you, they would have loved to stay longer!

We hosted our wedding weekend at the Nonantum. It was beyond perfect. We highly recommend it. Very family oriented and kid friendly. Great for large groups - which ours was. Everyone loved it. The staff is amazing especially Leigh who was our wedding coordinator.

Anyone who has a complaint about this place must be commited to the nut house. The staff are the most attentive and friendly we have encountered, could give Disney some pointers. Beautifully updated rooms and delicious food. We will be back.

This place still has that old world lodge feeling in the main lodge. It has been added onto many time.

I keep going back to the Nonantum because it is the essence of Maine, its friendliness and its beauty. The river runs by the beautiful green lawn and the flowers on site are continually taken care of to absolutely wow your socks off. The pool is great (although screaming children are not) and the rooms are lovely. We always get... More
