Hello Dawn! I really appreciate your remarks, especially as you are a member of the travel industry! We wish you could have stayed longer too! Yes, those mussels in the bar are the best and of course I wouldn't know this personally, but I hear the Cosmo's are really amazing as well!:) Please come back and see us again soon!... More

We enjoyed our stay and the Nonantum. The room was very small but pretty. The view of the river was the best part and the fact that we were on ground level and could walk out to our little porch with adirondack chairs. We asked for adjoining rooms and were told we would have them but when we arrived they... More

We recently hosted my daughter's wedding at the Nonantum resort and were very, very pleased with the results. Our wedding coordinaters Tim and Leigh were fantastic and they made sure that the entire bridal party, my family and guests were totally accomodated. More often than not, when something came up their response was "we'll take care of it", and it... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Nonantum. The room was beautiful New England decor with a great view of the river. The food was excellent. We had the special Farm to Table dinner and every item was delicious! The buffet breakfast is also amazing. We would recommend Nonantuma and would choose it next time we come.

We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to lovely Kennebunkport! Christmas Prelude is around the corner... More

We attended a family wedding there and thought everything was excellent . Only negative was the elevator was old style and you needed to have someone operate it to get to our room on the third floor .

Hello Anne: So delighted that you enjoyed the old world charm of our 1883 building.

We just got back from a wonderful weekend at the Nonantum Resort. We got married there 10 years ago and love to go back any chance we get. Staff is great, breakfast is delicious, and the atmosphere is so relaxing! Make sure you get a room with a balcony, it's worth it!!

We stayed for a week in the summer and what the hotel may lack in finesse and finish it goes a good way to making it all 'alright' by employing very helpful and friendly staff, the breakfast spread is one of the best we've enjoyed. A good base for the town and area and the location next to the River... More
