My husband and I spend two lovely days in Kennebunkport and stayed at this beautiful Inn. It was perfect, it sits overlooking an inlet with trees and flowers all around. We stayed at the River Cottage, it was quaint, beautiful and comfortable. We ordered take out the last night because we just loved the location! Would come back here again...

Wife and I enjoyed a delightful two days at the Bufflehead Cove Inn with a lovely room and great surroundings. Peaceful setting by the lake. Best thing for us was the blazing log fire, complimentary wine and cheese and the chance to have a nice chat with other guests in the comfortable lounge.

We had an awesome time and plan to return to Bufflehead Cove for many years to come. We did not want to leave. The staff is amazing and will take great care of you. This family owned establishment is an awesome place to relax and check out for a few days. The views are amazing.

Don't even know how to start this review and express the beauty of the location and the hosts. When we arrived we were amazed at the view, which was better than could even be described online. The host greeted us warmly at the door and welcomed us with a genuine smile. She was most accommodating recommending places to eat. The...
