“Great Over Night Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

My wife and I stayed for one night on Saturday November 8, 2014. The checkin was fast and our room was ready when we arrived. The front desk clerk gave us maps and suggested restaurants in the area. Our room was big and cozy that the same time. We both really enjoyed our stay.

I couldn't have been more satisfied with our stay. We only stayed one night in the off season but it was so comfortable, modern, sophisticated yet welcoming! The staff was incredibly friendly and I felt 100 miles away yet still home!

The Lodge on the Cove is a hidden gem in gorgeous Kennebunkport. Perfect for couples or families, the amazingly designed property is located on a charming cove and includes a pool, nightly bonfire and a charming and comfortable clubhouse. Tucked just a block off of the town's famous Ocean Avenue which follows the Kennbunk River to the Atlantic Ocean, it's a quick walk to the beach or Dock Square, the center of Kennebunkport. The new owners purchased the property in 2013 and the new design is comfortable, crisp, hip and classically contemporary. The staff is relaxed, accommodating and friendly. Love this place.

Our family loved Lodge on the Cove so much! Kennebunkport is such an amazing destination, friendly people, beautiful downtown, great food. We were amazed at the hospitality at Lodge on the Cove. In the evening there was a fire pit with marshmallow S'mores to roast by the fire. The main lobby, reception area is full of games and books. Our little girl loved the puzzles and wooden connect four game. We wished we could stay longer and loved our room which felt like we were staying inside a beach house. The amenities were great and the interior was so calming with beach rugs, a braided nautical table, paintings on the walls and hooks for keys and bags. Love love love this place. Great for families, couples, everyone! Mark was exceptionally welcoming and the ladies at the front desk are very sweet and nice. This place has such a Key West vibe to it in New England!!! BRAVO!!!!

Dear aleighm,

I love your title to your review! Thank you for your kind words. I shared your review with Mark and the Front Desk team; so thoughtful for you to point out their hospitality. Sounds like your family had a lot of fun while staying with us at the lodge. We have a nostalgic flair that lets guests unwind and return to the times that were less hectic and busy. Can’t wait for you all to return and stay with us again.

My boyfriend and I just got back from a stay in Kennebunkport at the Lodge on the Cove, and had such a wonderful time. We arrived a little before check-in time, and the staff were able to find us a room right away. They also helped us with suggestions for lunch and how to get around. The lobby area, clubhouse and room were all very comfortable and beautifully styled. Kennebunkport itself is a quaint and beautiful area, so we enjoyed exploring for the afternoon! I would highly recommend--especially for a quick getaway from the city.

Dear Katie T.,

Thanking you for sharing your thoughtful words with other travelers. We are always willing to check anyone into their room prior to check in time if the room is ready to go. The lodge is closely located to town so it is either a quick walk or bike ride away to get to all of the shops and restaurants. We hope that you come join us again whether it be a quick trip away or a longer stay.

From the first phone call to book the room to final check-out we could not ask for nicer staff. We booked due to seeing this on Living Social and took the chance. We arrived late on a Friday evening and the person checking us in was wonderful. There was a fire going in the fire pit so we went on down and made ourselves s'mores and sat outside on one of the blankets they provide. The room was a good size, wonderfully appointed (I noticed items from Dash & Albert), microwave, refrigerator, coffeepot, hair dryer - it even had a white noise machine! We could have used bicycles but the weather too cold for me. Breakfast is provided every morning: fresh fruit, English muffins, cereals, hard boiled eggs, coffee, juice, and something wonderful that is freshly baked. I can picture coming back in the early fall with other couples for a fun weekend. I am sure families with children have a blast in the summer with the pool.
