“Wonderful hideaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

What a great 4 days of rest, good food and relaxation. This is one of our most favorite Inns when we trave. The hosts are like family and make your stay warm and inviting. The wine and cheese in the evening is great after a day to touring. They always have suggestions for meals Nd will graciously make the reservations for you. We have already books for next visit!!

Hey Jerrie 10, you can come hideaway here anytime... come to rest after playing up the coast!! Always enjoy seeing you two and sharing a glass or two. Have a great summer.

This inn is our favorite place to kick back and relax. Lovely surroundings on the river and even nicer inn keepers. We've been staying here since about 2000 and will keep coming back. Privacy when you want it, excellent breakfasts and close to town, even walking.

We just returned after several years and the Inn is still perfect getaway! Great location, close enough to town yet far enough that you can enjoy the beautiful views and quiet moments. The breakfast... as delicious as we remembered. Aaron was great in reintroducing us the the Inn and the area. Still perfect!

My husband and I stay at Bufflehead Cove every October. Harriet & Erin are exemplary hosts, the B&B is gorgeous, the food is perfection and the location heavenly. What makes this B&B exceptional is that this is a place where friendships are made. We are from NJ, but we just returned from a trip to Colorado where we spent time with friends we made at Bufflehead Cove. Last month we spent a week in Ft. Myers, FL, with a lovely couple from Germany we met at Harriet's lovely B&B, and we have made lasting friendships with people from Rhode island, Georgia, Texas, North Dakota, Vermont and England. Come & stay in October, we'd love to meet you, too!

Bufflehead Cove is a delight in every way.

Ideal in every way!!!! Our room was perfect, the setting was peaceful and serene. The hospitality was gracious and welcoming. Arron and Harriet made us feel welcome and were ever helpful, with dinner reservations computer problems,etc. The breakfast was delicious....all fresh and freshly made. My only regret is that we could not stay longer, we however sincerely look forward to our next stay! Probably the BEST B and B we have ever visited!

Room Tip: We loved the "hideway" room! room

Pure decadence, lovely views and location, delicious breakfasts, warm, friendly hospitality from Harriet to meet your every possible need, beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and a very special way to spend time away. Peaceful, inviting, and perfect. We loved every minute of our stay and find it bittersweet to share this information as we selfishly want to keep this perfect vacation spot to ourselves! However, Harriet and Erin's fine creation deserves huge applause so here we are exclaiming its excellence.

What a nice review! We try very hard to make everything as nice as possible. Perfection is something we hope our guests will feel during their visit... not an easy thing to achieve. We are really pleased it worked for you and we thank you for the kind review.

We stayed here for my 40th birthday weekend. It is a wonderful place. Quiet, beautiful, and close to Kennebunkport. We dined at the White Barn Inn for my Bday and I highly recommend that as well for a very special weekend. The breakfast is excellent here, with personal touches that were great. The Inn is very well run and they will help you with directions and dinner recommendations. It is very relaxing!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Balcony Room which was excellent!
