Our coastal Maine Bed and Breakfast is one of Kennebunkport's finest historic Inns. We offer understated, casual luxury and modern comforts coupled with traditional New England charm. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood, we are only a short stroll from bustling Dock Square's shops, restaurants and art galleries. Our five guest rooms are well appointed with queen size beds and private bathrooms. Many have fireplaces and jacuzzi tubs. For that extra special accommodation, our one bedroom suite is equipped with a two person walk in shower, oversize spa tub, fireplace, refrigerator and in-room coffee maker. A three course gourmet breakfast is prepared fresh from scratch each morning using local and organic ingredients. Coffee and hot drinks are available 24 hours a day in our dining room and fresh baked cakes and cookies are on offer in the afternoons. 1802 House is an ideal destination for relaxation and as a base to explore everything the south coast of Maine has to offer.
