I have to start by saying that the breakfast here was spectacular -- I heard that it was once a restaurant and that the breakfast was packed; the owners should return to that business.
The rooms and public space in this small inn were clean, but in desperate need of updating. Our room was the worst -- in the very front of the house, with the only window right out onto the front porch. From morning until night, we had absolutely no privacy from guests sitting on the small porch, who literally seemed like they were in our small room with us. While I like dogs and was not put off by the idea of dogs being welcome, a number of small dogs took over the place, constantly barking. We came to Kennebunkport to go to the beach -- but the innkeepers knew little about the beaches in the area, and did not have the necessary parking passes (which many other places provide to guests).

Overnight stays include a 3-course breakfast in the "on the edge" restaurant from eight to noon. Homemade cookies, cake, infused water, coffee and tea from two to four. Ice, bottle water and truffles for turn-down service nightly.The Inn was built in the early 1900's as a boarding house that provided shelter and breakfast for weary travelers. Twelve guest rooms including a cove side cottage, thirty-two seat restaurant. Its location, which combines the beautiful surrounding of the Kennebunk River and the convenience of its proximity to all major Kennebunkport attractions, contributed to its popularity from its early days. That tradition continues today. While relaxation at The Edgewater Inn is an art in itself, activities abound in the surrounding area. Guests enjoy rejuvenating walks along the rocky shore, enjoy the sun on the sandy beach, explore the numerous galleries and shops in Dock Square, watch the wildlife and the birds as they gather near the water next to the inn, or spend a sunny day on one of the nearby golf courses. ... more less
