If you're looking for breathtaking ocean views, you're in luck here. We stayed in the large suite with the pullout couch. We had 3 windows that looked right out on the ocean. We could hear the waves crashing all day, we loved it. The tub in the bathroom in incredible, and is basically a mini pool ha definitely room for... More

Oceanfront, a short drive to dining, sightseeing and shopping! Many interesting landmarks, historical sights and the Bush compound on Ocean Drive! We enjoyed our two day stay at the Beach House during our time in Maine. The inn was very charming, located in the quieter section of the Lower Village directly on the ocean front. There was ample parking and... More

The Beach House has a great location, but the customer service and amenities were poor. Our room was very small, smelled moldy, the TV didn't work, the air conditioning unit did not cool adequately, the breakfast was average, and no one was available after 9 pm to help with any problems (we did call the after hours number). For the... More

Dear jkl19552016, While it is encouraging to hear you found the location to be great, it is disappointing to read we may have not met your expectations in some areas. Being directly at the beach, the environment can be dewy. We do air our rooms out by opening the windows and if needed, run a dehumidifier. Many of our guests... More

The room was very clean and sufficiently appointed. Bed was soft and comfy. Breakfast was good and the coffee delicious. The location is right between Gooch's Beach and Mother's Beach. It's about a mile from town and a nice walk. I highly recommend The Beach House.

Loved the location of this inn..away from the crowded beaches but near enough to walk. Beautiful view with a large front porch to look out and enjoy the atlantic. Helpful staff when asked questions about the area like where to eat, etc. The lower floor room that my son and husband stayed in was a bit mildewy smelling. My other... More

The Beach House in Kennebunk has a fantastic location -- away from the tourists and overlooking the ocean. The service was absolutely fabulous -- we requested a few things and they responded immediately. Continental breakfast, cookies in the afternoon and cheese and crackers and drinks for happy hour. I also have to note that we had to cut our trip... More

We stayed three nights at the Beach House and enjoyed it a lot. The hotel is situated directly at the sea front and in walking distance to the beaches. Wifi is only available in the lounge, which is improvable in our opinion.

What a lovely inn! Enjoyed our very pretty and comfortable room and the common areas - sunned ourselves on the lounges on the lawn and hung out on the couches of the main salon after dinner. The location is steps from the ocean and a short walk to the beach. They provided towels and beach chairs which was great. The... More

Dear cathybanker, While it is wonderful to read that you had an enjoyable stay overall, it is unfortunate the breakfast did not meet your expectations. We have two in-house Bakers and all of the breakfast pastries, quiche and rolls are made by them daily. I shall share the rest of your comments with Chef Gary Caron and his team. They... More

We stayed one night here on our weeklong visit up the coast to Bar Harbor. The common grounds and breakfast room was beautiful.
