Before I start my review, please know that we did enjoy our stay at the Inn but there were some disappointments. Our room was part of the Inn side and left a lot to be desired. Room size was large, including a nice sitting area for two with a small table in between. However, the room required a fair amount...

This place is right on the water, with views you could only dream of! Rooms are beachy and comfortable. That bed was so cozy I could've stayed right there...if there wasn't so much to see and do. Amazing hot breakfast and afternoon snacks (no charge)! Plenty of fresh seafood close by...first time I've eaten lobster every day for a week....

We all had pedicures and I have to say mine was the best I have every had. The spa can accommodate 2 pedicures at a time so bring a friend,...

This is an excellently located Inn on Ocean Drive in Kennebunkport. Wonderful staff welcomed us and since it was off-season, assisted us in finding good old down home Maine seafood. Our room was spacious, unique and beautifully decorated overlooking the Kennebunk River.

Stayed in an ocean view room and saw a beautiful sunset. Dinner at the Stripers restaurant was very good and the continental breakfast was ok. It is a short hike into town if are up for it but wonderful scenery.

I came here with my family for a weekend getaway. I booked massages for the ladies. The reason I didn't give a higher rating was that I didnt know the Inn is located in two separate buildings. It was not made clear to me at time of booking. The spa building has all the spa services, fitness center and nice...
