I actually grew up in the Kennebunk area and recently went home for a vacation. Our stay at the Nonantum was very comfortable. I was with my 12 year old granddaughter and we mostly enjoyed our time at the pool and seeing the immense fairy garden. Our shuttle driver, Tom Regan, was very helpful. Because we have family in the... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW

My husband and I spent a long weekend at the Nonantum Resort to celebrate his 40th birthday. The friendliness of the staff and amenities offered here exceeded our expectations! We enjoyed a clean and tastefully decorated room with an amazing water view. The staff members were so helpful and incredibly pleasant. They even had a birthday card for my husband... More

Breakfast was incredible and included in our price. Hotel room was great with a balcony overlooking the water. The staff was very friendly. Bathroom not completely updated but the room was worth it. We really liked it. It was nice to have a shuttle to town.

Hi Kristen: Our breakfast is super popular among our guests! Every day a little different but always delicious! This morning we had eggs benedict. I thought to my self "hmmm, those will be a challenge to keep warm and not over cook the eggs". Well once again I was proven incorrect! The eggs were warm and tasty but not overcooked.... More

This place is old school beachtown which I found very charming. A few negatives that go with it is no automatic elevator (it must be staff operated) very steep & narrow stairs. The pool was very small. Otherwise great accommodations, excellent food and plenty of guidance for the multitude of things to do. I'd highly recommend and will be back

We were at Nonantum for a wedding and they delivered a great time for the bride and groom and their guests. The gorgeous grounds, lovely river view, friendly and competent service, excellent food, and nice rooms all combined to provide a memorable backdrop for a joyous family occasion.
