Perfect location, and wonderful experience overall. Fabulous dinner at Ocean - make reservations! Service at dinner excellent as well, and nice wine list. Drinks on porch or lawn lovely. Away from the bustle of town, but not too far away - just perfect. Old Fort rooms have window air conditioners, not ideal, but we opened the windows, which worked perfectly,... More

This place is just beautiful. We stayed in the Carriage house at the Old Fort Inn, about a half a mile from the Ocean Ave building. We bought a package which included our room, a bottle of champagne, dinner for 2 at Ocean restaurant, and breakfasts. The package was a great deal. Our room was super cozy and comfortable. It...

The Inn is quiet spectacular. And small. And quaint. And restrained. Staff is more than willing to assist you. The king ocean suite is fabulous. Dinner reservations are a must and breakfast is included - both to be had in the dining room with a magnificent view. Ocean view two mile walk to town for shopping and restaurants. Shuttle to...

The inn is gorgeous and the location ideally located outside of the bustling downtime. Having drinks on the porch was a nightly affair as nothing could have better captured the relaxing and majestic views and aura of Maine.

This trip was the fourth time we visited Kennebunkport, the first time at the Cape Arundel Inn. By far, this Inn surpassed our other hotels where we previously stayed. The location can't be better; the food was top notch. We could see why reservations for dinner are a must.

We thoroughly enjoyed the view from the dining room, porches and Adirondack chairs on the front lawn. Breakfast and dinner in the dining room exceeded expectations; service was without a doubt, attentive without being solicitous. Our rooms were to the rear of the main lodge....a short walk away. The Old Fort Inn was lovely, quiet with comfortable beds. The room... More

This Inn is perfectly located on Ocean Avenue in Kennebunkport. Adult only (other than the restaurant) with amazing views. Peaceful place to enjoy the best of Maine.

Wonderful dining experience. All the meals were fantastic. Loved the yellow tail carpaccio and the lobster Thermidor. The cod special and swordfish were quite good, as was the chicken. Service was friendly and efficient. We would love to go back.
