We stayed here on the final two nights of our first trip to Maine. We chose a “bungalow” room, with a small patio overlooking the Atlantic. The room was beautifully decorated, spacious, with a modern bath…..and a bottle of our favorite champagne. The breakfast items delivered to the room each morning were just right to start the day, along with coffee made in the room. The front lawn is spacious and well landscaped with plenty of Adirondack chairs. The front porch has seating with views of the Atlantic. On the second day we made our way back to one of the annexes that had the pool, plenty of lovely seating areas inside, around the pool, and in a screened porch. My husband was able to play some pool on a beautiful antique table. On our final night, we ate at their restaurant and it was also worth the splurge. Food and service were excellent and each table has at least a partial ocean view. Each night after dinner, we would sit on our patio, bundle up in blankets provided, and finish our bottle of wine while watching the moon, stars and ocean.

Great service, great food, and great amenities to just sit and relax either poolside or overlooking the ocean. Room could use a little TLC though. Staff: Everyone you come in contact is friendly and willing to help in any way possible. Jonathan at the front desk in the main inn always had a smile and was always willing to chat about anything you might be curious about. Food: The breakfast in Ocean was amazing, didn’t have an opportunity to have dinner but was always packed. One MAJOR negative was that after Labor Day their was no lunch on property (either at the pool or main house). This was a major disappointment when you just wanted to nap and relax on the lawn or by the pool. Room: We elected to book the Ocean Bluff Suite knowing that it was up a set of stairs in back of the main house. Location was good as the view from the little terrace, and inside the room looked over the Bungalow Suites and had complete ocean views. The room had nice seating area, day bed and comfortable high end linens. HOWEVER, of the six nice size windows and skylight five of them had no screens so you could not open the windows to smell ocean air or hear the surf hitting the rocks. The sixth window HAD a screen however the handle to open the window had been removed. For the rate being charged it would be nice to have functional windows and a screen door. It was 50 degrees at night and we still had to run the AC unit. Also for the price I was very surprised that the shower was a all in on fiberglass unit that you would find in a 2/3 star motel. Will I return? Not sure based upon value received. Lastly their is a $35 per night resort fee for some water in the room, internet, and access to some bicycles.

We checked in today and were immediately, incredibly disappointed. We were traveling from a sister property (the Claremont in Southwest Harbor), so we had a pre-conception of high-end hospitality. Our reservation was in the clubhouse property (behind the main inn), but when we arrived, we were led to a tired, old building behind the clubhouse that looked like a converted old garage or carriage house. The building has a musty smell and the rooms feel like a roadside motel, including a noisy window AC unit, old bathroom, and other cheap finishes. The furniture and fixtures in the room are visibly worn; the shower sprays like a hose; and the sink barely drains. CLUB HOUSE = SECOND CLASS. DON'T STAY HERE!

We were driving the coast of Kennebunkport today and were a bit lost. Stopped in to this lovely inn to use a restroom and get some directions. First of all, the young man working at the front desk could not have been nicer, from letting us use the restroom, to coming outside with me to point me in the right direction and suggest where we should go. The views from inside and out were magnificent and if I was staying in the area would absolutely want to be here!!
