“A Very Special Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

It doesn't get better than this. I am not certain why TripAdviser has the Inn's location listed as Kennebunk because it is very clearly right in the middle of Kennebunkport. I had not been to Maine since I was a kid and we were looking to get away for the weekend. I cannot begin to say enough about this place. I am usually not one to go online and write a review, but I really felt I had  to after our stay. The Inn is fantastic. It is clean and chic, warm and inviting. Not one detail has been overlooked. Breakfast is amazing and so are the beds! You will want to know where to get the mattresses for your own home! The Innkeepers are so hospitable, you really feel like you are staying with old friends. It was a very special experience. I would recommend this trip over and over... and over!

Many thanks for writing a review for us! It's a shame that Trip Advisor doesn't realize that we are .7 miles from Dock Square we are in Lower Village which is a great location and thanks for letting other travelers know. We hope that everyone enjoyes their stay with us as much as you and we look forward to your next visit.

My husband and I have been going to Maine for 10 years, and have stayed in Kennebunk the last 2 trips. We've stayed at very nice inns and B&B's, but The Inn at English Meadows surpassed all of them. I was attracted by the website and knowing that the Inn had been recently renovated....which would hopefully mean a very comfy bed. It was indeed, but that was only part of a very memorable 4 night stay. Liz and Eric are the perfect hosts - intuitively knowing when to chat, and when not to. We chose the suite with separate bedroom and living room - perfect for a couple with very different sleep patterns! Wonderful linens, high end toiletries....tea, coffee and home made treats all afternoon right outside our door....the very best breakfasts you can imagine....Wine and cheese platters available to be delivered to your room.....and all this in a quiet setting minutes from bustling Kennebunkport and its great shops and restaurants. There is absolutely nothing not to like about this place. We will be back next year, and look forward to seeing Bailey, the adorable GoldenDoodle. Travel tidbit: We took the Acela from Wilmington DE to Boston, spent a night there, and the next day took the Downeaster up to Portland, where we picked up a car. Nice way to get to Maine if the drive doesnt appeal.

We so look forward to your visit next year. Hope you are feeling better and will be able to spend more time walking in Dock Sqaure. It's nice to know how much you enjoyed your suite and the amentities we have. Our Vera Wang mattresses are a big hit with our guests, especially guests with bad backs. Having a suite is perfect to enjoy a bottle of wine and cheese platter while relaxing!
Bailey will be ready to welcome you back!
All the best.

I have been going to Kennebunkport for years. Since discovering the Inn at English Meadows this spring, I now make a point to go more often! Liz, Eric and their adorable dog Bailey will make sure you have a wonderful visit from beginning to end. I was there in May, again in September and am already looking at dates for my next visit.

Room Tip: I always rent the bungalow!

It was so nice of you to write such a quick review. I am happy to hear how much you enjoyed the inn's amentities and all the renovations we made to the inn. We are very lucky so have so many wonderful restaurants within walking distance of our inn so you get a little exercise after a delicious meal! We look forward to your return.

My wife and I stayed at The Inn at English Meadow last week for 3 nights. We wish it could have been 6 nights. This entire review could be about the bed alone and how fantastically comfortable it was. Liz and Eric have a great thing going and have thought about every part of the B&B experience. The Inn is in a great location, the room was super clean and bright with really smart furnishings and the breakfast that is served each morning was a 3 course delight. The meal was completely different each day and we looked forward to our 2nd and 3rd mornings because it was so delicious. Could not have been more happy with the experience and we look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: Our room in the rear of the Inn was incredibly quiet.

My husband and I, along with two other couples, made a return visit to The Inn at English Meadows recently and it was just as charming this trip as last. I love the clean, contemporary furnishings and the breakfast was absolutly delicous! The bed and linens are so comfy! The Inn is within walking distance to good dining options, including the White Barn Inn Restaurant. Everyone in our party enjoyed our stay here and would certainly stay again (a third time!). The innkeepers are friendly and very helpful. We had a wonderful time and look forward to another visit.

Room Tip: Tack Room Suite does not have a tub but has a large shower with body sprays.

We recently stayed at The Inn at English Meadows and it was a fantastic choice. Liz and Eric were professional and friendly. Liz's knowledge of the restaurants was great (the White Barn and the Clam Shack was delicious). Eric assisted us with beach towels and a beach parking permit. The breakfasts were exceptional and the afternoon treats are a nice touch. The rooms were great, the website pictures accurately describe the space.
