Early season wedding reception

Professional bartenders, so no waiting for cocktails. Servers were attentive and helpful. Food was excellent. Prime rib was out of this world.

We stayed at the Nonantum and chose to eat here one night- was a little disappointed that we could not actually eat in the restaurant due to a wedding- we were seated on the front porch. However, the food was excellent. My husband and I split the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer and it was delicious. We also split a... More

We were married here 3 years ago, and my husband surprised me with a return trip with our new additions. It was splendid, as it was on our wedding. Attentive staff, great food, and beautiful environment. We loved the photo booth - what a thoughtful way to capture a memorable day. The kids loved checking out the fairy garden. The... More

One of my most favorite places to stay in the port. Good parking. Nice little pool, with a bar.....Nice! The pub is great at night, and the restaurant is top shelf. Great place for a wedding and functions. And you really cant the fireworks from here. Safe place for kids. Take all the boat tours right from their dock.

Wonderful location for a very nice older hotel that has lots of charm. Located right along the water, it gives you a nice feel of the New England coast.

If your idea of a "Maine Lobster Pie" entree for $29 is my wife's soup bowl of corn chowder with some bits of lobster floating in it (in total, we estimated, about the amount in one claw), then this is the place for you.
