“Second time's the Charm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Whomever said the second time is not the same has not visited the Elizabeth Rose House. From the warm welcome from Betsy and Paul to the immaculate rooms that truly feels like you came home again. When we arrived we had plans to explore the area again but the screened in porch for me and comfortable living room for my husband beckoned us to cozy up with our books instead. We spent two amazing nights in the same room as during our first visit to celebrate our engagement. We enjoyed our delicious breakfasts in the cozy kitchen. We have been to many B&B's but this one was and is still our favorite!

This was our second visit to the Elizabeth Rose House and we had a fabulous time. We stayed in the same room and were pleasantly suprised by the new finishes and charming decor. Paul and Betsy did an amazing job with the redecorating. I cant beleive that it could be any more beautiful than what it was from our first trip. Thank you Paul and Betsy for being the perfect hosts. We can not wait to go back!

It is a relatively big B&B with ~ 5 rooms. They make it comfortable coming and going. Very nice couple. Our room was nice and had its own bathroom. Good breakfast. You've got to drive to the beach, but they provided a permit and beach chairs.

It was like being at home. Friendly, casual, not formal at all. One can wander about the kitchen and the house just as at home.

And the facility itself, nicely restored, is quite charming. Hosts

Besty & Paul very responsive.

This is a nice house which has been beautifully restored. The location was perfect for our needs, between (and convenient to) Portland and close to York Harbor., Good breakfast in a great kitchen added a nice feel. Nice people. Worth another visit - or a first for some.

Room Tip: We were in the rear -- perhaps quieter?

The Elizabeth Rose House is an excellent place to stay! We were there over the 4th of July this year. Betsy and Paul are the owners and from the moment we walked in the door we felt welcomed. They are a charming couple. My partner and I planned our trip 6 months in advance. Betsy made everything easy. The reason for the trip was for my partner Jim and me to get married. Our best friends came with us. Paul performed our ceremony in the living room of their home. It was the perfect setting! Betsy and Paul helped us with all preparations from where to get the marriage license, performing the ceremony and all paper work involved. They made our day very special. The house is nicely decorated and very clean. The rooms were very comfortable and quite. We had cable TV and good internet connection. Perfect after a long day of site seeing! The house has a screened in porch that was the perfect place for reading the paper. They have private and safe parking in the rear of the home. Anything we needed, Paul and Betsy were there to help. They know the Kennebunk area well and gave us plenty of ideas of things to do. Betsy used to be a tour guide and is a wealth of information. We had breakfast there with them each morning. Betsy is an excellent baker. One morning she made fresh scones. She also baked a great tasting orange-poppy seed cake. It felt like being at home with good friends.
Kennebunk was a very charming town and everyone was very friendly. Jim and I will definitely be going back to stay at the Elizabeth Rose House and visit our new friends, Betsy and Paul. I also need to mention their little dog, Chloe. She was the icing on the cake! Such a sweet girl!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Portland Head Light House room. Comfortable bed and large bathroom.

Our stay was amazing! This was an enchanting retreat from the busyness of everyday life. Elizabeth and Paul were kind, helpful, and welcoming. They made us feel as though we were staying with family. We highly recommend you take time to enjoy this bed and breakfast and the beautiful town of Kennebunkport!
