We stayed here with friends for the Christmas Prelude. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and well appointed. Limited menu due to the time of year but the lobster rolls and specialty drinks were top notch. Each night they lit the firepit. The Inn is about a 15 minute walk to town. We would stay here again, it's small and quiet.
Mabel's is located approx. a half mile walk from the busy downtown area. In the evenings it is quiet there. The West Quoddy 49 room was good sized with a pond and deck off a side door. Only downside is that they had to serve bagged breakfast due to the pandemic. Mabel's restaurant is right next door with good food close by.
With a clean quiet space and close to the port of Kennebunkport, this was a perfect place to rest and relax. We had the place to ourselves and were able to get some fun shots of the blue herron who came to visit us for breakfast. It’s location is ideal.
If you have never been to New England, this is a perfect place to start. Mabel's is quaint, accommodating, and the location is perfect. First, the rooms are just what we needed - a small bathroom that was beautifully renovated, a comfortable bed, and a little deck overlooking the pond behind the house. It also had two Adirondack chairs which made pouring a glass of wine before dinner a no-brainer (the room also comes with an assortment of glassware)! When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and were told of some of the amenities such as bikes and kayaks. We wound up using the bikes every day to get into the downtown area. The downtown area is about a 5 minute bike ride, which was absolutely perfect. The beach is an even shorter bike ride, and is absolutely stunning. I understand what some others said about the breakfast, but for us it was perfect. I would absolutely stay again!…
We stayed at mabels inn and also ate at the lobster claw. The room was newly renovated and nicely furnished. The shower was wonderful with new tile and a rock bed base. The room was quiet and the staff was welcoming and helpful. The covid restrictions have altered the hospitality. You must request room service or towel changes. No one told us. The breakfast is terrible. We had the same cold muffin two days in a row with the same pathetic tiny cup of grapes and melon which was not fresh. It came in a paper sack. Really? Blame covid…but they could be more creative. The parking is adequate which allows you to walk to town. The restaurant was excellent. My 2+ lb lobster was perfectly prepared. What a treat!
