“Wonderful find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This place was incredible very happy in choosing to stay here. Very close to town about 5 or 10 walk. Breakfast every morning was different every morning and absolutely delicious. Cindy and Christopher wonderful and so nice and helpful. The room was very comfortable and clean. I definitely planning to stay here again maybe next summer.

Booked 2 nights here as most other places were either prohibitively expensive or far from the village. Old Parsonage (it was apparently a 19th century parson's residence) has 4 rooms, tastefully furnished, the bed (queen) was great, everything clean and neat and the most wonderful breakfasts prepared by Chris and overseen by Cindy. This couple takes great pains to make sure every guest is comfortable and happy. We could walk into town which we did every evening. Lobster any way you like it is not far away,either! Had great lobster dinners at Arundel Wharf (got the "lazy" dinner- they take it out of the shell for you!) and at Nunan's Lobster shack in Cape Porpoise(a short drive but well worth it). Would also recommend lunch on the deck at Federal Jack's - try the fried clams with the local beer. Would also recommend a walk through the Franciscan Monastery, a path through beautiful grounds that is both serene and spiritual no matter what your beliefs.

My wife and I stayed at the Old Parsonage for one night in late September. It's a warm & cozy home with very friendly hosts! Everything was new & clean, and the location is tough to beat. We highly recommend the Old Parsonage and we plan to stay there again soon!

PS - the breakfast was terrific!

Room Tip: Choose the room with attached bath if it's available.

Just returned from a weekend spent in Kennebunkport at the Old Parsonage. Despite a price that seemed "too good to be true", the stay lived up to the hype of previous reviews: great value, location, attentive service and top notch breakfast! From before we were even able to get out of the car, we were promptly greeted with a smile and advice about the area. Easy walk (~5 min) to town. Ignore the outdated google map street view of the house- it's much improved outside and in! Definitely would stay here again.

Had a day to kill before a conference in Portland so I took Route 1-A north up from Boston and found myself in Kennebunkport. I was feeling a bit tired after imbibing in the Bandaloop restaurant downtown so I enquired the amiable bartender as to where I might stay. He recommended the Olde Parsonage Guest House literally just up the way on School Street.
The hosts at the Parsonage are very very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. My room was immaculate, the sheets taut and clean, and the mattress firm. As soon as I hit the pillow I was out.
Welcoming me in the morning was the seriously best breakfast I've ever tasted at a B&B. It was an incredible souffle, apparently the proprietor was a chef at the Colonnade Hotel at one time and he now cooks unforgettable breakfasts at the Parsonage. This was a great place to stay and I only lament that I had more time to stay in Kennebunkport because the Parsonage is only a 5 minute walk to downtown. I will return!

Just (May 2012) spend a lovely weekend at Old Parsonage Guest House.
It's a beautiful old house, hosted by a lovely couple with an incredible adorable 3 years old daughter. Rooms are big, tidy and very comfortable. Breakfast served is excellent! At this guest house you get more than you pay, honestly worth of every dollar :)
Kennebunkport itself is a lovely place to stay. Downtown is full of cute little shops and nice restaurants. Beach is near by and you can easily spend a hole day there just relaxing. Even the big outlets are not too faraway if you are interested.

This small B&B on the edge of Kennebunkport is within easy walking distance of the central downtown area with its many shops and restaurants. Accommodations were very clean and tidy, and the innkeepers made certain we were comfortable. Breakfast was stellar! We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The password-protected Internet is fast and free! Remember to bring your own hair dryer.
