We live locally to the Cape Arundel Inn and I wanted to make a reservation. I called at 10:54 AM to see if a 7:00 PM reservation for 4 people on the 7/28/16 was available. I had checked on line through Open Table and 5:30 or 6:00 were open. NO one called back to let me know if anything was... More

My family of 13 had dinner at the Ocean Restaurant at the Cape Arundel Inn. It exceeded our expectations. I knew the view was magnificent but the food was as spectacular. Everyone enjoyed their berry good size appetizers, salads and dinners. We could not for desserts. It was pricey but very much worth it! I would highly recommend it!

The Arundel is one of my most favorite Inns of all time. We have stayed here before, and enjoyed their restaurant, Ocean, before, as well. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are nicely appointed with great maid service. The breakfasts are so yummy! And to sit on the front porch looking at the ocean is spectacular. Everyone worked... More

I absolutely love this resort and restaurant but the only drawback is the lack of EV (electric vehicle) chargers. I would've much rather stayed here than at The Nonantum Resort but since they offer TESLA EV chargers, I decided to stay with them. If Cape Arundel Inn were to invest in at least 2 chargers, I'm sure others who faced... More

Wow! What a wonderful place to stay. Wonderful porch to take in the ocean view and the Bush compound. The breakfasts were wonderful and the dinners nearly perfect. Truly a special place to stay in Maine.

This was a remarkable old property. My wife and I stayed in Room #3 which looked directly onto the Atlantic. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine with the sea air blowing right in at us in comfortable chairs. Right out the window to our left was President George H.W. Bush's home/compound. Couldn't have picked a better place to stay.... More

There is so much to love about this place. The setting, the location, the incredibly helpful and friendly staff. We stayed in the annex but upon checkout looked at a couple of rooms in the main building. There is a noticeable difference in quality that isn’t reflected in the respective room rates. On the plus side we had a great... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. The room was lovely with a view of Walker Point. The Inn is really in a special spot and worth the splurge for a few days. The breakfast and dinner was really good at the Inn's OCEAN restaurant. The Inn offers complimentary water, coffee and cookies throughout the day.
