“Great value! Excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

My family of 4 were taking a 10 day New England vacation. Kennebunkport was the third stop. We stayed at Shorelands for 3 nights and it was the best sleep we had the whole time. The beds were very comfortable.

For the money, this is the best value we found during our vacation. We had 2 rooms with 4 beds and a kitchenette for less than the cost of single hotel room at other hotels. Don't expect a Marriott. Shorelands is independently owned and operated. It's a group of small duplexes. They have a nice little guest cafe with coffee and muffins. It's a short walk to the beach and a short drive to Kennebunkport shopping. I'd definitely stay here again.

If you visit, be sure to say hi to the long haired calico named Felicity. She's the most social cat I've ever met!

What a wondefrful time we had at Shorelands. Our condo had two bedrooms, one with an on suite bathroom that had a jetted tub. There was an additional bath with shower for the other bedroom. The condo was clean and nicely decorated and had everything we needed. Just a short walk to you to a lovely beach area, great for fishing and collecting shells. Best of all our little dog was able to stay with us.

Although it was not warm enough when we were there the end of September, there is a pool, barbeque facilities, volleyball and bikes for riding. A great stay indeed!

My wife and I stayed 4 days, 3 nights and were very happy with everything. Sonja was pleasant and very accommodating. It was a wonderful stay. It is a unique resort. Different size cottages with walkways and pathway night lights. Our cottage with 2 person jacuzzi bath in master bedroom and full kitchen w/dishwasher was perfect. It even had wine glasses. It had 2 little rear decks leading out to a semi private backyard. Although it is on rte 9, it was was so quiet we could have slept all morning. Sonja gave us directions and restaurant suggestions. It's a short drive to the Maine Diner and Kennebunkport activities. Absolutely great location. My wife loved the jacuzzi and I enjoyed watching the Patriots crush San Diego on the 55" Flat screen. Doesn't get too much better than that. One last thing, the price was very reasonable. We will definitely return. Hard to beat.

Room Tip: We stayed in cottage # 50. It also had 2nd bedroom w/ 2 beds.

My friends and I booked 4 cottages for a weekend stay in August 2011. The accomodations were perfect for everyone - Dads and Daughters. Parsons Beach is only a short walk down the road and was perfect Maine Beach. We enjoyed the outdoor pool and had one evening grilling food and sitting by the firepit. The location is close to some great restaurants and there is plenty to see and do in the lower village. Our favorite was Happy Hour at Stripers Restaurant in Kennebunkport. All agreed to return again next year.

The rooms were very clean when we arrived, and daily service was great. The pool area has been redone and looks great. I particularly enjoyed the short walk to the beach, walking down a country road by a horse farm and salt marsh wetlands to a beautiful beach that is never crowded (in my experience)

This hotel is perfect for groups! The owner was so friendly and accommodated our group by putting us in the same area. The condo units are very nice and has everything you need in kitchen - even a dishwasher! A short 5-10 minute drive to town is very convenient - and the beach is only a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. Great place - definitely would stay again!

My mom and dad stay here, and love it, so me and my family (including an infant) Started staying here as well. We all love it so much, I told my husband's family about it and they stayed and loved it too. Very clean rooms. The room we rent is small, and neat with a kitchenette, but my friends have stayed in the new cottages and they are very spacious, their kids got their own room. This is the third time we've stayed here and for the reasonable rates you just can't beat it! There is a beautiful beach accessable by walking on a road that goes through this beautiful horse farm. The beach is never crowded. Everyone who works here is always very friendly, we will come back time and again, and they allow pets! Would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys a simple Maine vacation, we love it.
