We stayed at the Portside Lodge section of Nonantum. It has large, beautiful grounds and hotel. Room 258 had a good view with balcony. I felt the rate was too expensive for the time of year because there seem to be no "resort" type activities available except Shuffle Board. I'm sure there are more opportunities in the summer months. However,... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2016 via mobile

We stayed for four nights. The complimentary breakfast was amazing-eggs, quiche, waffles, bacon etc. Hotel was a short walk to town but there was also a hotel shuttle that guests can use which was very timely. We took the shuttle to Gooches beach, and to/ from town. Our room and the grounds were clean. We had a water view which... More

We stayed at the Nonantum Resort one night while driving up from Boston last week. It's a quaint inn but very well appointed. The property is BEAUTIFUL with a water front view in the back. Nice spot to sit in the adirondack chairs and take in the Fall weather. We had a fantastic breakfast -- certainly much more choices and... More

I spent 3 lovely days at the Nonantum as part of an Amtrak package. This meant I arrived in Wells on the train and was told I would be picked up at the station and delivered to the resort in a shuttle - with the knowledge that I would not have a car once I got there! I understood the... More

We have stayed at the Nonantum before and love it. The charm of being in a heritage inn on a coastal river with the atmosphere of New England life was relaxing and peaceful. The staff is amazing! A mistake had been made with the location of our room (I had asked for consideration because I am disabled) and it was... More

We arrived around 7pm with no reservations. From the minute we walked in we were made to feel welcome. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious! Would love to return someday. Rooms were nice, remodeled recently everything was perfect! The flowers and gardens were beautiful!

always wanted to stay here. Had a great view of the water. Relaxing. Staff was very helpful and cordial. Had breakfast downstairs and enjoyed everything. Sat outside after breakfast to enjoy watching the boats go by and bask in the sun. A great way to start the day.

Hello Ray: I am delighted to hear your visit here was a wonderful time! Thanks for sharing your observations! The views here are spectacular and with the fall coming our way the foliage is always awe inspiring! I love watching the boats and totally agree it is a great way to start the day. Lounging in an Adirondack is just... More

Laminate flooring very noisy. Doors have big gaps under them and you can hear everything that is going on outside your room and I presume vice versa! Might aswell have a huge communal bedroom. Staff friendly and place looks ok but we only stayed one night. Enough for me!

Hello Seasoned Traveler: I am so sorry your room wasn't as quiet as you would have liked! Each room is outfitted with a sound machine for folks like yourself who are used to a super quiet environment. The hard wood floors are preferred by most of our guests as they are far more sanitary. The downside is the steps outside... More

If you look at the photos of the hotel it would seem as if it is surrounded by water, which is not the case, the back of the hotel faces a lagoon, that is all. They also call themselves a resort, which again it is not, they just have some games for kids on the lawn. The room was nice... More

Nonantum Resort made our vacation much more memorable. We passed by the resort when we visited Kennebunkport two years ago. This time we get to stay for 4 nights. We love our cozy room, view of the harbor, beautiful flowers all around, lobster boat tour, wonderful breakfast, but top of all is the staff. We can't thank you enough on... More
