“Idyllic spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We visited this great spot this weekend after booking one night there via a hotel deals site. We were in the "Float In" cottage - which had a sweet (but not in a cloying, cheesy way) nautical theme. The cottage was perfect - lovely fixtures, bedding, etc. and the location was fantastic - right on the little cove, with a mini garden and Adirondack chairs out front. We also had our almost two year old daughter with us, and I wasn't sure what to expect with a more boutique-y property - but they were accommodating and everything was surprisingly kid-friendly. It's a short walk to town, which was handy. The breakfast delivered to your door in the morning was a nice touch. We'll definitely be back.

Dear 'Idyllic spot',
We are so glad you had a wonderful stay in the Float In cottage! It is a lovely cottage with fantastic view of the cove inside your cottage and from your adirondack chairs in your garden patio. Next time bring your daughter with you. We have Sweet Dreams and Sandpiper which feature two bedrooms; one bedroom with a queen and the second bedroom with a twin bed is perfect for your daughter. We are happy to know that you will definitely be back. Until then we look forward to seeing you again.
Sincerely,
The management and staff at the Cottages at Cabot Cove

Definitely, one of my very favorite places to stay. I have been here four times and each cottage is so fun...charming, lovely, relaxing and quiet...the landscaping is beautiful.
The staff is amazing. Christy Reid, The General Manager, is outstanding. She has a great eye for every detail...so everything is perfect. She is so friendly and knows everything about the area.
She has an excellent staff, Karen and Linda. They are so helpful and friendly...very accommodating.
I love the bicycles, kayaks...the breakfast bags delivered fresh each morning...housekeeping is excellent..as are the amenities.
Do I have to go back to the real world?
Wonderful visit...thanks so much!

We found this cottage online. We were a little unsure, but as soon as we arrived we were blown away! The cottage we stayed in was incredibly adorable and quaint. We used the bikes and were able to see the sights and views of Kennebunkport. The staff was friendly and offered great tips. We loved our "breakfast bag" in the morning which came with a list of ideas to explore during the day. Each cottage has unique furnishings and all of the luxuries you'd need for a night or week! We can't wait to come back to this spot! When we checked out, they have us a bag of treats for our drive. We highly recommend these cottages!

We stayed here for the long Memorial Day weekend. Took two cottages side-by-side. Both were lovely - very clean - and definitely the object of some tasteful investment on the part of the owners.

The location turned out to be perfect - within a two minute drive of town - or a ten minute walk - but also close to the water for a couple of walks.

Great.

Seriously...I LOVE these cottages. They are so cute and equipped with everything you need. Each cottage is uniquely decorated. We stayed for two nights in the "Sweet Dreams" cottage, a two bedroom cottage that would be suitable for a family of 3. The cottage itself is equipped with a Kuerig coffee maker, microwave, oven and dishes you need to cook. There was a TV in the living room and one in the master bedroom. When checking in, the woman who helped us was so friendly and hospitable and made sure we knew that if there was anything we needed she was there to help. Each morning breakfast is delivered to your door...fruit, pastries and yogurt. It was a great start to the day. You can rent bicycles or kayaks if you want. The stay was perfect - down to the broken seashells they use for gravel in the parking lot...It is beautiful!! The hard part is picking the cottage you want to stay in, as they are all so cute!

Just returned from a 3-night stay at the Cottages. We loved our stay, from the idyllic setting to the tasteful cottage and exceptional customer service. The cottages are small, but so well designed and appointed that you really have all that you need in a beautiful package. This is a serene destination, but a very quick drive into town, so you get the best of Kennebunkport. Extra points for the wonderful women who greet and care for you during your trip. They were the icing on the cake!

Room Tip: Their website makes it easy to pick a cottage that suits your style, though I'd like to try them...

Basically my girlfriend wants to buy one of these cottages and never leave again.
As a guy they were a tad cutesy and a little small but generally they are unique, really well appointed, and not much to complain about- Okay the bathroom shower was tiny. Ours was pretty perfect it was about four or five bungalows up from the grass and bay area. Staff was great, really helpful with local suggestions, and seemed like there was always coffee or cookies or things to make it just a good bit better than the usual hotel. I liked how they had beach cruisers at no charge, and the grounds were spectacular and very well taken care of. Welcome baskets and goody bags for the road were also very generous. made the memory on the way out pretty positive. And now I love moon pies thanks to hem, not sure if that's great or horrible for me now ;-)
We might be back, I will say I didn't feel like I was missing anything and it really did give you a taste of maine without all the carved wood sea life totem poles, doilies and other cheesy things you dont need.
