We stayed at Bufflehead Cove Inn for two evenings in July, and had a wonderful time. Harriett greeted us on arrival and, after letting us settle into our room, took us on a tour of the property and sat with us to review a map of the town and point of attractions of interest. Their attention to detail is clearly... More

A fabulous, elegant inn on the cove, just a short walk (or bike ride/drive) from downtown Kennebunkport. The best way to enjoy this part of Maine! Fabulous food, wonderful hosts - we definitely will be back again!

This is more than a B&B it is a taste a beautiful living. Set by a river surrounded by tall trees with ducks and birds all around. Arian our host was so charming and helpful. The breakfast was a work of art. I don’t think you could get a better place to stay.

Bufflehead Cove Inn is the #1 rated B & B on Trip Advisor because it is absolutely fantastic. We've stayed here numerous times, albeit, with a 15 year hiatus. We decided this summer to make the trip and renew our love affair with the Inn. The best thing about our return is that the place has not changed one bit.... More

Beautiful, charming house, wonderful landscape, very friendly host/staff. We have loved our stay there one night and would have stayed longer, but there was all booked. The view from the surrounding garden over the river is fantastic. Facilities with many aesthetic details. We enjoyed the 5:30p.m.-cheese-fruit-and-wine-time and also the delicious breakfast which was served outside on the porch. Very close... More

Absolutely top of the line location, room and service. The staff was awesome and could not have done more for us. Breakfast was great and beautifully prepared. My wife opted to sleep in and they delivered it to the room for her.

We loved our stay at the Bufflehead Cove Inn. It's secluded down a dirt road away from the crowds of Kennebunks and its neighbor city Kennebunkport. It sits on one of the most beautiful tidal coves you've ever laid eyes on. We chose the Hideway, which is separated from the main building, extremely private, with an unmatched view of the... More

We were impressed from the moment Harriet greeted us at the front door. Our room was beautiful and almost a match for the gorgeous views from the balcony and from the front porch. Harriet was so helpful with suggestions for dinner and ways to explore Kennebunkport. The downtown area is a pleasant walk from the inn and full of quintessential... More

This Inn is fantastic! The grounds, location, rooms, food, and people are all amazing. Everyone should treat themselves to a stay here. It's quiet and peaceful, just outside of the downtown shopping area of Kennebunkport, but it's less than a 5 minute drive to get there. Lots of chairs and tables, even a hammock, to enjoy the beauty and tranquility.... More

Don't really know where to begin but I guess it all starts with the outstanding innkeepers, Harriet and Erin. They made the entire experience a pure joy as well as the other employees: serving staff Melvin and Dina, top notch chef Aziz and Jim who filled in on Saturday in the kitchen. Gracious, elegant, beautiful, spotlessly clean. Don't miss the... More
