“A Beautiful Inn Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

My wife and I have been visiting the Kennebunkport area for many years and have stayed at various inns. This is our first stay at the newly renovated Inn at English Meadows. The transformation from the old "Victorian" motif (when we stayed years ago) to the new impeccably decorated decor is simply amazing. The inn is tastefully decorated with attention to detail throughout. We stayed in the Sunrise Room, aptly named due to the five window turret, letting in an abundance of light. The room is one of two in the main house and has a spacious bath, comfortable chairs for reading and the most comfortable bedding we have ever experienced. You can't help but be relaxed in such an environment. Liz's gourmet breakfasts were simply delicious and unique. From ricotta pancakes with lemon curd, roasted pears with espresso, crab cakes and egg Benedict, and chocolate scones (my favorite), each breakfast was an enjoyable dining experience. Eric's service and conversation during breakfasts only added to an overall pleasant morning, each day of our stay. We will definitely be making the Inn at English Meadows our new Kennebunkport "home away from home". Thanks Liz and Eric for a wonderful experience. Looking forward to seeing you again.

Wow! You made my day.
I am so glad you enjoyed the updates we made to the inn, it's so much fun to see the guests who have stayed here prior to us reaction to the new style. Sunrise is one of our popular rooms so happy to hear that you enjoyed that room as much as others.
Breakfast is when I get to be a bit creative. I try to find new recipes that you might not have had before or wouldn't make at home.
I am so happy to hear that we will see you again. We will do our best to make it a memorable visit for you.
Many thanks for your comments.

We need a quick escape and found the perfect place! The English Meadows Inn was just what we were looking for. From the clean, updated and nicely appointed rooms, to the plush robes and slippers (a take home surprise!), everything was perfect. A short walk into town and a quick ride to the beach makes this Inn perfectly located. What a pleasant surprise the next morning when we were served a fabulous 3-course home cooked breakfast. Simply scrumptious!

We will absolutely return!

Room Tip: We were given Room #2 and loved it!

This was our first stay at the Inn at English Meadows in Kennebunk Maine and it absolutely won't be the last. It was for a one night get-away in April. We were greeted by the Innkeepers and taken to our room. Restaurant suggestions were made. We stayed in "Goose Rocks". It was absolutely beautiful. The decor had the right balance of contemporary and traditional. The room was very very clean and appealing. The bed linens and bed super comfortable. The bathroom was large and the towels thick and toiletries were wonderful. The common areas are also very nice and inviting. Keurig Coffee and Tea were available with homemade choc chunk cookies in the afternoon. The breakfast was super delicious and freshly homemade. We hope to make it back in the summer months.

Sorry you could only stay one night but we hope to see you when the weather is warmer. I happy to hear you were so comfortable in Goose Rock. It's such a bright room and to have the living room right outside your door makes reaching the cookies, coffee and tea so mcuh easier!
I can't wait to hear from you once you make the the blueberry muffins.
Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with others.
Best,
Liz

What an absolutely beautiful getaway! My husband surprised me with this trip to Kennebunkport while we were hanging out in Boston! We hadn't had time to take a honeymoon since our wedding, and this trip was just the perfect getaway for the two of us! The house is immaculate, and the rooms are filled with luxurious items to keep one comfortable for their stay. The owners are very warm and take care of every need that you may need! The breakfast during our stay was absolutely delicious!! I wanted seconds! I highly recommend this place to anyone during their stay in Kennebunk! It is definitely a jewel in this cosy town!

I wish I had know this was a mini delayed honeymoon. Your husband didn't tell me but he really wanted you to relax and enjoy a quick get away. Nice to hear you had such a good time and enjoyed the inn. We loved hearing about your wedding and your future plans. I hope you will have an oppt to visit again and stay longer.

Many thanks!

My husband and I stayed at the Inn at English Meadows for a one night getaway in March. We stayed in the Sunset Room in the Carriage House. The room was beautifully appointed with upscale decor and a gas fireplace. The king sized bed was plush and the bathroom was spacious and clean. No detail was overlooked.

In the common area of the inn, there were two separate living rooms for the guests to enjoy and each had beautiful and comfortable seating and an ipad for the guests to use as well as tea and freshly baked cookies.

We enjoyed a late afternoon snack of Liz's homemade hot chocolate and cookies. The hot chocolate was rich and may have been one of the best I have ever had. A delicious and plentiful 3-course breakfast was served the next day. It included a chocolate chip scone, honey-sauteed pears with mascarpone cream and orange-cardamon french toast with local maine sausage.

The Innkeepers strike the right balance of friendly banter and service with plenty of time alone for you to feel as if you have the place to yourself. We look forward to our next stay!

Among friendly and welcoming innkeepers, Liz is a stand-out (as is her breakfasts). Her dining recommendations were very fine, taking us to restaurants that were new to us. As for the Inn, it is really very lovely: tastefully decorated, warm and inviting. Say hello to Bailey if you visit.

Room Tip: The Sunset Room is very nice, although taller guests might be bothered by the low ceiling. The king...

Wow, my hot chocolate might be the best you have had - that's so nice to hear. I will share with my friend in Paris who gave me the recipe. We were so happy that you were able to spend a night here to celebrate, we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
It's nice to hear how much you enjoyed your room and the common areas at the inn, we love to see the guests enjoy the living rooms.
The sauteed honey pears are a guest favorite so happy you too enjoyed them!

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience and share some pictures. We hope to see you soon!

Hope the new job is going well!

Best,

My husband and I decided to take a midwinter break, and dine and lodge in Kennebunk. The Inn was so comfortable and well designed and appointed. The great night's sleep was topped off with a delicious gourmet breakfast. Liz and Eric have really taken great care to provide beautifully decorated thoughtful spaces, with the best bedding! We will make it an annual event, or more often. I would recommend to friends. Also, the art galleries next door are an added attraction.

Room Tip: We liked our room with separate sitting room....Memoirs.

It's so nice to just take a quick break from life and have a little get away. We are so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your get away. Our suites are our most popular rooms, especially during the colder months when you spend a little more time inside, it's nice to have the extra space to relax in. We are so lucky to have such wonderful dining choices for our guests and it doesn't get better than The White Barn. We look forward to your next visit and hope it will be sooner than later.
Many thanks for writing your review!
