Helpful & friendly staff, beautiful surroundings, charming town, comfortable beds, clean rooms. Real New England feel. Staff dropped off turndown gifts in the evening & the chocolates were just delicious. I wish we could have stayed a little longer. WILL be back!

Hi Dominique, We certainly are a classic New England Inn with a modern twist. The antique resort fits well in the quaint town of Kennebunkport while our long list of family activities is able to accommodate the needs of modern-day travelers. We are looking forward to hosting you again! Sincerely, Jean Ginn Marvin Innkeeper More

Small room with terrific views. Fine amenities with attentive staff. Busy street but traffic slow. Would like to return in the fall. Food and beverage prices slightly elevated. $25 average entree; $8 beer. Well done preparation.

Hello there! Thank you for your feedback. We are on one of the main roads in Kennebunkport, which is convenient while being unobtrusive. The speed limit is 25 and the road is very pedestrian friendly, so guests in our street-facing rooms can enjoy watching folks leisurely stroll or drive down the way rather than cars whizzing by. We do hope... More

We spent two days at this wonderful Maine resort. The staff was exceptional and the food was outstanding! We enjoyed the location as it was a short walk to the shops and restaurants in Kennebunkport. The walk on Parsons way was beautiful and relaxing, and the views of Walkers point were outstanding. The late afternoon included relaxing on the Adirondack... More

The hotel was ideally located and had great facilities. The room was great with a river/sea view. We enjoyed walking on the water frontage, playing some games and using the pool. We were very pleased with the evening meal. This is the sort of place we would want to return sometime in the future.

Great location in walking distance to town of Kennebunkport. Staff was friendly, welcoming, particularly Barbara at the "activities station" who rented us our great bikes and suggested great routes for us to take and places to visit on our tour. The place makes access to sailing tours and lobster boats, games and places to contemplate the view easy. It sits... More

My wife and I stayed at the Nonantum Resort for 1 night while traveling through Kennebunkport and absolutely loved it! It's truly what you would expect in a "genuine Maine waterfront resort". Clean, old-fashioned architecture and fixtures, waterfront views, and an extremely helpful and courteous staff that makes you feel valued. The old-school, hand operated elevator is also really cool... More

My 21-year-old daughter and I wanted an active AND relaxing getaway and The Nonantum in Kennebunkport was the perfect place. Warm and friendly staff, indescribable breakfast and activities galore (lobster boat tour, sailing, kayaking, lounging by pool, ping pong, short walk into town, bicycling).

The property is quaint, in walking distance to town, and very welcoming. The lobby has a family feel, and the staff is great. Breakfast in the morning was great. The resort is older, but clean and the room had a nice deck. I'd return!
