First time to Kennebunkport, stayed 3 nights in a wonderful room with balcony. Had views of the river and ocean! So nice to enjoy a cocktail on the balcony!!! Room was inviting and up to date - great accomodations!!! Only problem was parking with weddings going on the weekend we visited, but the resort resolved this.

First of all, this was our first trip to Kennebunkport so we can't compare to other hotels in the area. We stayed 2 nights. The hotel is older but the rooms are very well updated. We were surprised to see our room which was in excellent condition after using the what seemed like a very old elevator (staff must accompany... More

It was disappointing this time, Many new staff which made it more like anyhotel. Much more focused on families, which overcrowded the pool, both for seating and swimming. Breakfast buffet was crowded onto 3 small tables which made it more difficult to navigate. Generally disappointing after so many years of loving it.

On my first trip to Maine several years ago, I spotted the Nonantum Inn as we toured the town of Kennebunkport....and I said to my family that someday I will come back and stay here. Well, this year was that year! Whether you stay in the main house or the newer Portside building, the views of the water are spectacular.... More

We stayed in the old hotel room and was very charming. The room was spacious and clean. The employees were all very helpful and pleasant. I loved all the gardens!! The pool was a good size. Delicious buffet. We enjoyed sitting by the water and watching the boats go by. Easy to walk to town or beach. Perfect place and... More

I have stayed at The Nonantum every summer for several years. In that time I have appreciated many of the changes and upgrades they have made. This year it became very obvious the management wants it to be a "family resort". In doing this, they have taken away a lot of the charm. Unfortunately it was unseasonably hot and young... More

Headed to the Nonantum again in a few weeks and can't wait. Was there last summer and it was so charming and peaceful. We did stay in the Portside Bldg and so I can only speak of those accomodations. The original bldg really seemed to look older to me, plus I loved the fact that Portside had wonderful patios or... More
