First the pro's...The Nonantum is one of the larger properties in the area and has many ammenities that you would expect for a resort of this size including a pool, two bars, a restaurant and planned activities. It is very family friendly. The location is perfect, a short walk to the main shopping/dining area, and there is a beautiful view.... More

We stayed in Kennebunkport heading up the Maine Coast and loved the town so much we wanted to stay on the way back down. We called Nonantum Resort and were lucky enough to get their last room...3 of us stayed in the room which had a WONDERFUL River view where we could watch the boats coming in and leaving the... More

What a dreadful place. We stayed in the main house in a "waterview" room on the 2nd floor. In reality for $400+ per night it's a tiny room (maybe 180 sq ft?) with a view of an expanse of asphalt roof with barely a glimpse of the water, and in dire need of renovation. The wallpaper appears to have gone... More

We stayed here for two nights, in a double room with water view. The room had been renovated and was very nice, although the bathroom still looked a little tired. We loved the location and the old fashioned (but nice) feel to the place, for example the elevator is so old it needs a member of staff to operate it... More

The Nonantum was such a lovely place to stay -- the view of the river was so peaceful. Everyone - wait staff, front desk clerks, hostesses, was so friendly and helpful. The breakfast served every day was the perfect start to the day. Next time we will remember to get a room in the Portside building OR bring less luggage!... More

As I picked the title for this review, I realized it how hard it will be to capture 'my perfect place' in words. I had never been to Maine before and decided on the Nonantum based on Trip Advisor reviews. Kennebunkport is God's country. The perfect balance of the sea and woods, in a quintessential New England Setting. My husband... More

We stayed in a number of places in New England in the summer and this was our least favourite. We stayed in the building which was separate from the main house. We had drab, tired rooms and bathrooms; lukewarm, unappetising breakfasts, and noise from adjoining rooms. The saving grace is location. It overlooks the river and there is a lovely... More

We just spent another week at the Nonantum. We love the family feel of this hotel. We have always stayed in the newer building. The staff is excellent. Breakfast is included and great. The children's activities are the best. Our daughter loves taking part in the crafts, nature walk, movie night and campfire. We will be back next year for... More

But make sure you stay in the newly renovated rooms with balcony. The old rooms are small and needs to be updated. Our room with balcony had a view over the little harbour. The room was very clean. We look back at a wonderfull stay and great service from the staff. They are very nice and helped us with all... More

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.
