All were immaculate and adorable. The location is great..close to Kennebunkport and... More

We spent the week with our family and our Grand dog. Cannot say enough about the resort itself, was so well kept, very clean and quiet. Can just sit back and relax by the pool or enjoy playing horseshoes, pool, etc. Also great play area for children and pet friendly. The owners and everyone who works there are fantastic. Cannot...
