Thank you for making our visit perfect. A spotlessly kept room to return to after enjoying the Prelude, always completed our day Nothing is better than a clean, friendly, independent motel where not only to you get to meet the owners, but other guest, also. Jan and I certainly hope that you have totally recovered from your fall and that... More

Our friend's wedding was next door and we lucked out by getting a room at the Fontenay Terrace. Less expensive and so charming. Love these small family run motels that still grace the Maine coast. We requested an early check in due to the wedding being that day at 3pm which we found was difficult to confirm and we ended... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Fontenay Terrace and have been very pleased both times. The room was spotless and the location is near shops, restaurants, etc. but is in a quiet area. Will definitely book again!

This was my first time staying at this motel. it was clean and nice. As a single mom I traveled with two children under 10 and felt extremely safe. It was walking distance to the beach and two eateries. I would definitely come back again!

The Fontenay's location across from Colony Beach is such a perk for our family. We have easy access to the beach, Dock Square restaurants, and a couple of walk-up food establishments for great beach eats.

The motel has a beautiful yard full of flowers with a table and chairs set up overlooking the river. The room was clean and had 2 double beds, microwave, refrigerator and a coffee maker with complimentary coffee. The location is great as you can walk to the beach and downtown Kennebunkport. The owners and staff were very friendly.

My wife and I stayed at Fontenay Terrace for our 4th Anniversary, and really enjoyed it. The room was clean, and the location is great. Easy walking distance to Kennebunkport shops and restaurants, and an especially easy walk to the beach and St. Ann's Church. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great stay in Maine!

Looking to return. We stayed at The Fontenay to attend a family wedding. The weather wasn't the greatest by the Fontenay was clean, pleasant, quaint and fairly priced. Close enough to walk everywhere.

We loved the Fontenay, and wished we had more time to stay and enjoy it. We were only in Kennebunkport for one night. We stayed in Room 2, and it was a clean, spacious room. As I said, we were unable to take advantage of all it had to offer simply because we were there for such a short time.
