I will first say The Lodge on The Cove is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are modern, spacious, clean and comfortable. Every staff member from the front desk to The Dory restaurant is very friendly and helpful. Here are the negatives; this is a very Family Friendly place, so if you are a couple and are looking to relax I WOULD... More

Evidently I drew the short straw and got the "only room without a assigned parking spot in front of it" stated the front desk clerk who checked us in but wouldn't change our room. That said, the lodge was absolutely wonderful and it seems that everyone from the cleaning staff, the breakfast attendant and the short order cook, wanted my... More

I booked a room at The Lodge on the Cove without knowing much about it other than it had an open room the night I needed one. As soon as I settled in, though, I asked if I might stay another night because this motel's chic, modern style and thoughtful details are right up my alley. Unfortunately, the hotel was... More

Wonderful place for family's. Very kid friendly. The pool/clubhouse was awesome. They had lots of activities for the kids to do. Loved the poolbar/restaurant, was able to eat/drink at the pool. Located about 1 mile out of town. Service was terrific. Can't wait to go back!

My family of four (kids ages 10,12) stayed one night in Kennebunkport as part of our coastal Maine vacation. I just happened to stumble upon this place online and what a fortuitous discovery! This place is clean, adorable, and has the feel of a 50's resort. The kids swam, we played ping pong, and even sat by a campfire that... More

Stayed here for three nights with my husband and one of my kids. Had a terrific time. Perfect for families bc there is tons to do, but also great for those with discerning tastes. Hotel has been completely overhauled with a really funky aesthetic. Think Jonathan Adler meets Maine coastal chic with a little bit of kitsch added for fun.... More

My family and I stayed at the Lodge on the Cove for a couple of nights in early summer. The weather was still wavering between warm enough for laying on the beach and chilly.
