Spent two nights here while attending a family reunion. It was recommended by a friend. What a nice surprise. It's set up like a little motel from the 50s or 60s but felt like a B & B. Room 7 wasn't huge but had two full beds, one of which was ticked in a little nook so we weren't on... More

A slender strip of rooms framed by flower boxes overflowing along the sleepy veranda lies on your right as you pull right up to the door of this cozy motel. No schelping through a lobby or standing in line as the owner greets you with a handshake that says you've just checked in. The simple rooms are fresh and spotless... More

We can't put into words how amazing this place is! We brought our bicycles and used them for our transportation while in Kennebunkport. So close to everything but just far enough away to enjoy the peacefulness of sitting on the front lawn. The owners, Jon and Deb, feel like old friends and were the most gracious hosts. We came with... More

This motel has lived a long life, BUT our room had new carpet, new tile in bathroom, modern and clean bathtub, a good-sized mini fridge, comfortable beds, and air conditioning. There's something sweet about this place. The fact that the owner, John, is so kind, thoughtful, friendly, and helpful seals the deal!

It's rare to find an independent motel these days, and when you do, you're always wondering what you'll find when you get into your room. There's absolutely nothing to worry about here. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. It's very basic, but that shouldn't turn you away, as the friendliness of the owners, the incredible baked goods, and the... More

Perfectly located between Kennebunkport and goose rocks beach, owners John and Debra are the best! Great homemade goodies for breakfast every morning, this is my second time back. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone.

Located on the outskirts of Kennebunkport, this quite motel is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a true Maine port town. Just a 5 minute drive from the center of town, the owners will help you narrow down exactly what it is you want to do, being any activity, eating to fishing. The rooms are perfect, and the outside...

We traveled out East for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Our two night stay here was a relaxing, pleasant experience just outside of the busy traffic of Kennebunkport. John, this Innkeeper was very friendly and accommodating, always willing to engage in a conversation and suggest things to see and places to eat. The rooms are pretty basic but CLEAN. He bakes...

Need a place to rest my head while volunteering for a fund raiser. This place was recommended by a friend. Lovely, shaded green space in front of the motel. Rooms are simple and small, but very quiet and very clean.Just the kind of place you need for the beach. New bathroom with great shower, plenty of hot water. There was... More

"This place is spic and span" was my comment upon entering our room. Got a recommendation from an Aussie couple at breakfast in Bethel to stay here on our trip south and I cant thank them enough!
