The Edgewater Inn is located on Ocean Avenue in one of Kennebunkport’s most charming neighborhoods. While relaxation at The Edgewater Inn is an art in itself, activities abound in the surrounding area. Guests enjoy rejuvenating walks along the rocky shore, enjoy the sun on the sandy beach, explore the numerous galleries and shops in Dock Square, watch the wildlife and the birds as they gather near the water next to the inn, or spend a sunny day on one of the nearby golf courses.

Really love the place! Had a hard time looking for our room at first but they're very helpful! There's a free bike you can use. Room was lovely and we had a really great experience! Breakfast is included - muffins, coffee and tea. There's free parking and area is very quiet.

We stayed at Mabel's House for the first time for a 5 day stay. It exceeded our expectations. Room #42 was spacious, and comfortable. Mabel's is a perfect location, close enough to town but away from the hustle and bustle. We used to stay at the "Inn" across the street, (won't mention name) but it has gone down hill and we wanted to try something new. We will definitely stay at Mabel's again. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast in the morning is fresh, and just the right amount of food. Easy parking and no extra resort fee charges. It is also next to Mabel's Restaurant which is our favorite. Thank you for your hospitality.

We had a delightful 5-day stay at Mabel's House! Alberto and all the staff were welcoming and gracious hosts and took such good care of us. Their location is excellent — far removed enough from the busy foot and car traffic of central Kennebunkport to offer peace and quiet and a good night's sleep, while just a 12-15 minute walk (or even quicker bike ride or drive) to that lively part of town. Even closer in the other direction, you have a lovely small beach and beautiful meandering coastline dotted with charming seaside houses. I won't soon forget the wonderful running route this provided! We stayed in the 2-bedroom Suite, which was clean, up-to-date, and nicely furnished, and offered our family of four plenty of room to spread out comfortably in. The included continental breakfast was a big help to have, as it let us spend more time enjoying the beaches and less in restaurants. Having bicycles available to borrow gave us a nice way to go see the town, and having use of four EV charging spaces (3 Tesla wall adapters + 1 J1772) was a nice bonus not mentioned in the property description. The associated restaurant next door is a must visit; we enjoyed a great meal there on arriving. Overall, a wonderful vacation spot. We would definitely recommend Mabel's House to friends, and look forward to returning!

We had a wonderful stay at Mable's House. Alberto was excellent and helpful as was the other staff people we engaged with. It is mostly non-contact but they made sure you had an email in case you needed anything and took care of it right away, we were lucky enough to book an extra night when we realized we hadn't allowed ourselves enough time in the area. The rooms were nicely appointed and very clean. Definitely would visit there again.

We absolutely loved our time at Mabel's House! We stayed in the two-bedroom Cove Side Cottage, which was adorable and perfect for our needs. The staff were super friendly and accommodating. While check in was contactless, someone stopped by shortly after we arrived to make sure everything went smoothly. Someone else came by later to ask us about any food allergies to prepare for the continental breakfast, which consisted of yogurt, fruit, and fresh pastries every day, served in personalized paper bags with our room number on them (so cute!). After the first day when I asked for Splenda for my tea and they didn't have any on hand, the next morning there was a whole dish of Splenda in addition to the rest of the sugar -- so thoughtful! We loved the location and the fact that it was "on the water" with the tidal estuarine cove. I went kayaking with the free rentals they offered and it was so peaceful. Plus, Colony Beach was right down the road, where we enjoyed watching the sunset on our final night. The shops across the street were fantastic -- don't miss Dannah for Men! And Dock Square was a short drive away. We also ended up eating at Mabel's Lobster Claw (the restaurant right next to the property) for both lunch & dinner. The calamari & chicken scampi linguine were divine!! Long story short, Mabel's House is a truly incredible place to stay and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Kennebunkport!

Very adorable place, our suite was spacious and quaint. Great location to beach and site seeing. A little off main dock area, but close to get everywhere easily. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this B&B.

We stayed at Mabel’s house for a four day trip to Kennebunk! It was an incredible stay. From booking to checking out, the communication and service was incredible. The staff is some of the kindest I have experienced. They were so helpful. The room was immaculate and the beds and pillows were so comfy! They serve continental breakfast in the mornings and pack it up for you in little brown bags and have a cute dining space that overlooks the pond. It’s such a quaint and quiet little inn and we loved it! It’s the atmosphere I dreamt of having when I booked the trip to Maine. Next door is the Mabel’s Lobster Claw, we walked over the first night and it was awesome. Mabel’s House is within walking distance of the main strip with awesome views of the river along the way. We had such an incredible experience—I’d recommend them a thousand times!

The comfortable room and cozy little place. Wifi could've been better. Once tou figure out how the AC works, it's a wonderful quiet little place with a beach a few steps away. Beautiful neighborhood far enough from downtown so its calm, but close enough to walk to.

My sister and I spent a week at Mabel’s and it was just a delight! The house and our room was so clean and very nicely decorated. It felt like we were at a home, very warm. The continental breakfast each day was the perfect mix of treats to start the day. Mabel’s lobster Claw is hands down some of the best lobster I’ve ever had and I will be back for sure! I would highly recommend Mabel’s House to anyone looking for a cozy spot close to town but far enough away to enjoy the beautiful picturesque views of Maine.
