“Return every year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2011

My husband and I have been staying at the Nonantum every year for the past 6.5 years. We are always more than happy with our stay and have not had a negative experience. Staff are always warm, friendly and courteous; rooms are always bright and clean with wonderful water views. We love the close proximity to Dock Square - we can leave our car at the resort and walk everywhere. We were even there once when the Nonantum was hosting the local high school prom - and it was not at all a disturbance to us or other guests... and the kids looked like they had a fantastic time!
The Nonantum is one of our favorite places and we plan on returning again this year.

My mother and I came down to get away for a night to relax, see a few things, and have a great meal, while spending quality time together. We acheived all these things and more. I will definately be back with my husband. P.s. the old elevator was really cool..I love seeing pieces of history....don't ever change that. Sincerely Margaret Flanagan Whitefield Maine.

It's quite simple, if you want to experience the genuine warmth of american hospitality..stay here.
From the moment we walked through door the kindness and sincerity afforded to us was fantastic.
The food was delicious , plentiful and the lobster..the best in maine ..without doubt !

Our room was cosy and clean with a large bed, the hotel gardens are beautifully landscaped next to a river with several spots to just sit down and watch the world go by.

This hotel is quite old and built mainly with timber it has that charm and character you come to expect with such a building that has stood the test of time.

Out of the eight hotels we stayed in during our tour of New England this is the one that reminds me of a very special part of the world.

Thank you for such a wonder full experience

This has been our Maine destination for the past 25+ years. We book the Portside and park the car and walk everywhere, shopping, dining and the beach! It is so close to everything and the staff could nat be more accommodating! The specials on the Internet site and FB make it even more appealing! We look forward to our return every year!

Started off in Boston which was fantastic. Blue man theatre was a must do. Went onto Kennebunkport to relax. The hotel was so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble and the food was excellent.
The staff were very friendly and gave us lots of ideas about were to go such as the shaker village. Very safe, our daughters enjoyed the pool and we went on a bike ride which was great fun it was also a great base for sightseeing, whale watching and shopping. A short walk to the centre enabled us to eat lots of seafood and explore. As a family we try to go somewhere new every year and have been fortunate to have visited 21 states in America, Canada, Europe and Africa. We all agree Maine is worth a revisit, we loved it. A bit disappointed we didn't see Jessica Fletcher!

My husband and I had an extremely enjoyable trip to Kennebunkport when we stayed at the Nonantum Resort. We were there to get together with a group of friends that we had not seen in a while. We had drinks in their fabulous pub located off the lobby and spent the rest of the night laughing and reminising while playing board games sitting beside their fireplace.
I would recommend this resort to anyone and everyone! We had such a great time and many fantastic memories were made by all.

The Christmas Prelude, Nonantum Resort, and Kennebunkport, Maine returned a spirit for the season we thought was lost. My wife and I were greeted by a friendly staff. Our room was perfect with the Gas Fireplace and Water View. Service and food during the stay remained top notch. The Fire & Ice event will bring us back for a yearly tradition that we hope to share with friends and family. We are looking forward to a Summer getaway to check on this enchanting resort.
