This is a very nice place right on the water. We took a boat trip right from their dock to learn how to catch crab. Every morning you can watch the boats go out to sea. You can walk into town to the little shops and restaurants too.

Hello Always Wright! Thanks for your nice review! I'd have to agree, you are always wright! :-) Crab catching is one of the most popular ways to pass a day in our Activities Program. I really enjoy watching the kids down on the waterfront patiently trying to catch a crab. The squeals of joy when they are successful are the... More

We found The Nonantum on the internet in a last-minute search for an early September getaway and are very glad we did. The location was perfect - short walk downtown, short drive to Goose Rocks Beach and Cape Porpoise, and access to an afternoon sail on a ketch right on the property. Our lovely room was waterside, with a view... More

Nonantum resort is in a quiet location within walking distance of Kennebunkport. Staff are very friendly and seem to have time for everyone. The place has a very relaxed feeling about it. The building is slightly quirky. For instance the elevator was manufactured in the 1930s I understand and can only be operated by a member of staff. The rooms... More

Hello Life Is Good Friend: Life really is good in Kennebunkport at The Nonantum, isn't it? November is actually our quietest month and many, like you, come in November specifically because of this fact!

My guest room was a river view room located in the building next to the inn. The building and guest rooms reminded me of an upscale motel. First impression of room: the decor; the drapes and bed spread consisted of a palm tree motif. And this is Maine! How about a moose, duck or pine tree motif. The bathroom was... More

We stayed in the Newer river view rooms, which I was glad when we drove up and saw the age of the original hotel. It definitely gives a false sense of amenities on line.
