My husband and I have stayed at the Waldo Emerson repeatedly over a four-year period, while visiting family in the area. I gave them a 5-star review after our first visit and am doing so again, on multiple counts: First, there is the housekeeping. This may not be the most elaborate inn you ever visit (don't expect name toiletries), but I will venture to predict it is the cleanest. Second, there is the breakfast -- huge, satisfying, personalized as needed. John is the head chef, responsible for fluffy Dutch pancakes and fancy egg dishes, but Kathy's granola is a standout. Third is the house itself -- cozy, charming, decorated with lovely handmade quilts, nicely located between Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Finally, there is the spirit of hospitality that permeates everything. Want a large room with a fireplace? A restaurant recommendation? Directions to the Kittery Outlets? Kathy and John will provide them. And if you accidentally leave your slippers under the bed (as I did on our last visit) the inn will send them back to you Priority Mail! The mattresses could be firmer, but that is really our only gripe -- and a small inconvenience compared to the many large advantages of staying at this delightful inn.
