Our stay at the Colony Hotel was the best vacation ever, The staff, food, town, people, grounds, decor, view all were first class. We enjoyed our stay so much, we've made reservations to return to the Colony Hotel next summer!

Visiting and staying at the Colony has become a tradition for our family. It is our long weekend away to wrap up summer and cross over into the start of school and work year. Very relaxing venue with lots of choices, the large expansive porch to sit and read, eat breakfast, take in the views, watching the boats set out... More

We held a meeting here in the early summer of 2015 and it was amazing. The facility is a step back in time that is well preserved and one that I would encourage. The rooms in the Main Hotel are turn of the century which means they not air conditioned but mostly not needed because of the fresh breeze directly... More

We just returned from five days at the Colony and are planning on making it an annual tradition. I think to really enjoy its many charms, you need to be prepared for the type of hotel it is - an old-fashioned, family hotel. It's not a Four Seasons by any means, but it's a very classic, back in time feel.... More

The Colony Hotel sits right on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic and the entrance to Kennebunkport Harbour – really you can’t get a better location. It is about a mile or two from town, close enough to make it by car in about 2 minutes, or a decent walk which is doable. The best word to describe the Colony is... More

Don't get me... More

We stayed at the Colony for 2 nights with our 6 and 10 year olds. We stayed in the East House, as we wanted ac and a tv. The lovely rooms in the main hotel do not have ac (which you really do not need since it's breezy) and also do not have tvs. The rooms we had in the... More

We visited Kennebunkport many times and stayed at the Colony twice. We chose it for an awesome ocean view and a heated salt water pool. You can walk to a small beach, but we chose to drive 10 min to a more beautiful beach. The rooms are very pretty village style and the lobby is very inviting. They don't have... More

The Colony Hotel is a beautiful hotel located on the water. We stayed at this hotel for a wedding in July 2016. We stayed in the expansion property across the street (has air conditioning), which reminded me of the movie, "Dirty Dancing". The furniture was nice and the bed was comfortable, but furnishings seemed a little outdated (wood paneling in... More
