We happened upon Maine Stay Inn by sheer luck. We were wandering around Kennebunkport and saw this beautiful house with a vacancy sign. We were so very happy and pleased that we found this wonderful place. Judi and Walt were such great host and hostess, that we had to comment on our stay. Our room was impeccable, and breakfast was even more so. The ambience of the whole place is just remarkable. It's proximity to shopping is also a big plus. If we get back up in this area we will definitely stay here. Frank and Norine

Judy and Walt were very friendly and greeted us with tea and cookies upon our arrival. They were the perfect hosts and gave us information on the surrounding area and recommended local restaurants. The cottage was so clean and included a Keurig coffee maker in the little kitchen/dining area. The breakfasts were wonderful. This was a total Maine experience.

My husband and I stayed at this lovely Inn on Oct. 1-3, 2013. We stayed in the beautiful Cottage #4. It was so private, so clean and so perfect. The bed was extremely comfortable!! And the breakfasts......Wonderful!!! We had our very own refrigerator and Keurig coffee maker, which really made everything so convenient. We even had our homemade breakfast delivered to our cottage one morning.....so good and so fresh!! All the shops and restaurants were within a 10 minute walk from the Inn. Will definitely return to The Maine Stay Inn on our next visit.

Thanks Judi and Walt for a wonderful stay!! Also, we really appreciate the balloon bouquet awaiting our arrival. This was a lovely anniversary surprise and so thoughtful of you!!

Room Tip: We didn't stay in the Main Inn, but the cottages were lovely.......so comfortable, private and q...

From its street appeal to the littlest detail, this inn was a special experience. We just returned from our Fall foliage tour and our night at The Maine Stay Inn was at the top of our favorites list. Every member of the staff was delightful. When they added their stories to conversation it made the house feel like a home. The condition of the inn is remarkable given its age. It was impeccable and very clean. Walter gave us a wonderful tour and explained how the house had changed through the years. The decor was lovely and our room (#14 with its own special patio) was in top notch condition as well. It wasn't cold enough to turn on the heated bathroom floors but that would have been a nice option for a cold day. The linens and robes were of excellent quality. Judy and her team prepared an outstanding breakfast. The inn is located just far enough from Dock Square to offer a quiet setting yet close enough to stroll into town for dinner or shopping.

Wow, Judi and Walt are the perfect hosts. We had a small cabin which turned out to be beautiful, big, separate kitchen, amazing King bed and beddings, quiet... and parking right in front. We had a wonderful three course breakfast with "new" friends. We got the perfect recommendation for the Maine lobster dinner, bibs and all. When I was thirsting, I glanced in the fridge and there were four bottles of water as a gift for us. Absolute perfection! Dr. Rick Schaefer from Milwaukee

Room Tip: luxury in the main building, or privacy in the cabins. The cabins are super modern and clean... not...

The location, the hosts, the beautiful rooms and especially the absolutely delicious breakfasts made this a wonderful vacation for us. thank you. Coming in after a walk in Kennebunk Port to tea and cookies and front salon or porch was also an appreciated treat.

Maine Stay Inn was our first stop in a week-long vacation to Maine. My mother and I, and daughter and boyfriend stayed at Maine Stay for two nights and really enjoyed the inn and Walter and Judi. Mom and I stayed in the Garden Room, number 14, and loved it (the garden patio was lovely). Breakfasts were truly gourmet and delicious. Walter and Judi are so engaging and helped with activities and restaurant selections. The location in Kennebunkport was great; we walked everywhere and felt like we got a feel for the town. Highly recommend a trip to Goose Rocks Beach, a sailing trip on the Schooner Eleanor (loved Rich and Haas), and dinners at Tia's Topside and Pier 77.
