We recently spent our 40th anniversary weekend at the Nonantum Resort ( a surprise from our children). It was a wonderful experience! We were not even in our room for 5 minutes before the front desk called to see if everything was satisfactory. Our room was on the lower floor overlooking the river. Every employee we met was smiling,friendly, and... More

Lovely place. We found everyone very pleasant to deal with. It is a short walk downtown to restaurants and shops. Or walk in the opposite direction for a beautiful view along the water. Parking can be a bit tight when there is a function at the inn. The breakfast was very good and we sat on the front porch each... More

Welcome back! I am glad you enjoyed your stay again. Visiting us in the fall is a great idea! The weather is a little cooler, the town is calmer, and the changing leaves are magnificent. Eating on the porch is one of my favorite things to do. Relaxing in a rocking chair is the perfect way to start each day!... More

I stayed at the Nonantum Resort as my last stop on a Fall Colors New England Tour. I loved it there, and would like to come back one day. I had a room, #264 which had a great view. I highly recommend the Nonantum Resort.

Hello Shirleybeth: I am delighted to hear you and your daughter had such a great time here at The Nonantum! I have to agree with you, the extra charge for the water view room is well worth the money. Where else to you get to lay in bed and watch the boats glide by? I never get tired of this... More

Hi James, It's great to hear you had a nice time! As a family-owned property, we try to be as family-friendly as possible! It sounds like you participated in many of the activities we offer and took advantage of short trip into town or to the beach! We'll see you again soon! Best, Jean Ginn Marvin Innkeeper More

As part of our family road trip exploring New England, we opted to stay at Nonantum whilst in the Maine area. It was a perfect choice for our family.

We were here for two nights on a mother-daughter weekend away. We were surprised to see that our room was not a river view but a parking lot view. And, we were surprised that the pool was Very Small for a "Resort". Nevertheless, staff was helpful, bedding and beds were wonderful, and adirondack chairs by inlet provided lots of beautiful...

Hello there! We have many different types of rooms, some with waterviews and some without. In an effort to cut costs, many people choose to book rooms without a view and spend time in the Adirondack chairs like you did. On site we have bike and kayak rentals, exercise classes, lawn games, movie nights, s'mores nights, and more! However, these... More

I booked this room last minute. The staff were so accomodating when I checked in. The room was adorable, clean, and comfortable.The breakfast was excellent. The bonfire at night was a hit with my children. The Mojito's are the BEST I ever had! I want to stay again just for the Mojito's at the pool.
