Location is ideal. Amenities were spot on. Best part: the staff was super friendly and helpful, taking time to be sure we had every question answered and every need met. Our trip was a scouting mission for a family reunion scheduled for August 2017 in honor of the family patriarch's 90th birthday. After our time at Nonantum, we are more... More

Hi Alan: I am excited to hear you will be back in August for a 90th birthday! Love those kind of family events. We actually did my dad's 90th last summer and it was a blast having everyone together! Our staff wrote the book on customer service! They really just could not be nicer. We are getting ready for Christmas... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed October 14, 2016 via mobile

Our family (wife and two kids ages10 and 12) visited the resort for our kids fall break. First time to the area, and we all had a great time. The resort is perfectly located, with most locations accessible by feet. The resort is an older resort, very beautiful, and offers a historic touch to your visit. The staff is very... More

Beautiful waterfront room with fireplace. Spacious for two people, most comfortable bed and nice linens. Woke up every morning to changing colors of the sky against the water. Top notch place. Can tell it is normally a busy place and could see some wear and tear in the public areas of our building, but it has that New England charm... More

Thanks so much! I am so happy you had such a terrific time at The Nonantum! Fall is such a wonderful time to visit. Rates are low, reservations are easy to come by in Kennebunkport's many great restaurants and our cozy Cuddledown bedding followed by a scrumptious breakfast sets the stage for a restful, carefree day. Just what vacation should... More

Once again the Nonantum provided us with a terrific weekend. Our daughter was married here in the spring of 2015 and that was wonderful.

For a spectacular escorted trip in all six New England states, Caravan Tours is the way to go. They offer excellent value at reasonable cost. Our tour director was extraordinary and motor coach driver "wicked good."
