Ask for second floor room with ocean view. We have been coming to the Nonantum for 7 years. Recently the rooms were " upgrade" and carpets were removed. They rooms look great, but it was noisy. The guest above us seem to pace all night and it was annoying to hear the guest walking back and forth. The beds are... More

We just returned and I want to say that I would highly recommend the Nonantum Resort. The staff were wonderful and most friendly, and the food well I ate far too much but it was worth every bite "delicious" The staff treated us very well and certainly went out of their way to make our time there most enjoyable.

this is an interesting place. We like it as all tue employees were very friendly. We got a room with the porch and it was nice and spacious. There was a little mold in the shower, but the rest of the room appeared clean. The view is nice and they really try to accommodate you here. A+ for employees.

This is a nice, old fashioned, large hotel. Nice grounds, right on the river. Rooms are fairly nice but walls are very thin. We could hear Everything going on in room next to us. Bathroom is pretty small, not much counter space but clean. Pool is very small. Breakfast is amazing! Very delicious lavish buffet. Hotel staff couldn't have been... More

We just stayed at the Nonantum for two nights and checked out this morning. The service here is fabulous, everyone was courteous and lovely to talk to! Our room in the Carriage House was very nice and we had a great view looking out over the pool and river. An easy walk into town. My husband and I really enjoyed... More

We had such a great time at the Nonantum. With two young active boys, the Nonantum had a lot to offer them. Shuffleboard, croquet, basketball, swimming were just a few of the things my boys got to do while we were in Kennebunkport. Our room had an outdoor porch with a huge open lawn space overlooking the water. My husband... More
