My friend got married here last weekend - it was a wonderful stay. The rooms are not super modern, but well appointed and comfortable, some with beautiful views. The breakfast was delicious, and the staff was friendly, courteous, and on top of everything generally and for the event. A walk or short drive to town - many areas to explore... More

If you hadn't stayed at this hotel and visited Kennebunkport you'd probably regret it - and book a stay on your next trip. The location at the mouth of the river and within an easy walk of the town - is perfect. The staff excellent. The food great. Absolutely no complaints. We travelled there as a family of three with...

What a charming review! Thank you! We think our location is perfect as well. With a vacation, as with buying a home, location, location, location! It is so nice to be right on the water, yet also be an easy stroll to town with its many stores, galleries and restaurants. Our guests love our marina so that they can go... More

This was the end of a four day bike trip and what a delight. The setting is beautiful, the staff outstanding, the rooms clean and the food was great. I cant recall what I ate, but I arrived soaking wet after a long and cold bicycle ride and the staff was more than helpful and assisted me in every way.... More

Thank you for your very nice review! So glad we could share some warm hospitality on what sounds like a cold rainy night! We love hosting bicycle groups.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of Sept. It was GREAT! Great views, wonderful staff, comfortable rooms, good food-we had a Maine Lobster Dinner. The resort is close to a lot of things and was very safe. We went out walking and never worried about safety. Close to the main "hub" of Kennebunkport where... More

What a delightful writeup! Thank you for your kind words. I was particularly taken by your remark "It reminded me in a ocean resort from past times, and it did put a smile on our faces" That is exactly what the Nonantum is striving to be!

We were on a road trip through the New England States and stayed for 2 nights at the Nonantum resort. It was different. We got a lovely room on the 2nd floor, after the lift-boy (!) gave us a ride up. It was the oldest elevator I've even seen, but it was cute. The lift- boy had to move a... More

My husband and I selected the Nonantum for our 20th anniversary. It was absolutely the best choice we could have made. The reservations person booked us in a top floor room facing the river. The view of the river was spectacular. The room was large and had a jacuzzi. The room was very well-appointed, and had a great coffee maker... More

This was our second Christmas Prelude weekend. Having attended the first "Fire & Ice" in 2010 we were excited to see what changes they had in store. We are happy to say that the improvements to the adventure left us wanting to return soon. The staff was upbeat and capable. The setting and the food delightful. Nonantum Resort and Kennebunkport...

Nice, clean hotel although the restaurant and pub were never open when we wanted to visit although I understand we visited during the slow season (November). Complimentary breakfast was very nice, excellent view and pleasant staff. One complaint I have is that they do require prepayment of the first night and my sister who was set to arrive on the...

I appreciate you taking time to share your thoughts. I am wondering if perhaps a mistake was made when you filled out the form as you gave us 3 5's, 2 4's and 1 3, and titled your entry as "Nice Place" yet gave us two stars over all. If this is a mistake, could you please let the good... More

Went for the Thanksgiving weekend to unwind a bit and get away from the big city mayhem.
