Stayed here for a couple of nights just before the start of summer with my wife, one year old daughter and pet dog. We we're very satisfied overall with the room and loved the beautiful pitched ceiling and wood moldings throughout. The bed was extremely comfortable and it had a cute patio, overlooking the river about 10 yards away. The...

This inn is very nice and the whole town is classy. Good shopping and restaurants downtown. Great seaside visit. We will visit here again sometime soon. No wonder G. H. Bush chose this place. You can't get much closer to the ocean.

We have visited Maine many times, and this was our third stay at the Yachtsman. The first two visits were perfect and highly recommended, however, our last visit was not as expected. When we checked in, the room we received had previously been occupied by a guest with pets, and the room had the worst smell, probably from animal waste....

This is a great place to stay in Kennebunkport though a little pricey for a motel. It reminded me of an important lesson that I had become a little careless about, ie the cancellation policy. It was clearly stated at the bottom of the reservation that unless cancelled 14 days prior to scheduled arrival, the entire amount, not just the...

I booked a room at the Yachtsman because I was traveling with my mom and my Golden Retriever and I wanted a cool, water's edgy, dog friendly Maine vibe. Turns out, our little motel room was exactly what I was hoping for. Mom and I enjoyed watching the boats while we ate breakfast, and the prime location allowed lots of...

Visited in May on our first night in Maine and loved it. Clean, lovely, comfortable room. Sipped sherry in the afternoon on flower-filled patio, then walked into town for dinner. In the morning, walked the other direction to Parsons Run. Desk clerk couldn't have been nicer.

My husband and I spent a weekend at the yachtsman. We needed a weekend away, without kids, and this was perfect. Comfortable, clean room with a private patio. Walking distance to dock square restaurants and shopping, as well as colony beach and trails by the ocean.
