“Put this Beautiful Inn on your List”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

We can't say enough good things about our stay at the Kennebunkport Inn. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and make our stay there more comfortable.

We arrived at 1 p.m. on a Thursday and to our surprise our room was ready. Check-in is at 3 p.m., Check-out is 11 a.m. We had booked the Kennebunkport Festival Package and we were handed printed tickets for two to 5 different events. When we arrived in our room there was the large Sea Bag & a framed Kennebunkport Festival print that was part of that package. The events surpassed our expectations. Plenty of food, drinks & entertainment included with the tickets.

Our Mansion Queen, Room #101 in the main inn was spacious with a nice four-poster bed and 2 comfortable plush chairs with a table, fireplace and flat-screen TV. There is a switch to turn on the fireplace for instant flames. There was 2 small bottles of Poland Spring water on a shelf next to the ice bucket. There are ice & soda machines on the main level. There is a single cup Keurig coffee machine with Kcups in the room. The view from the windows next to the bed looks down on Dock Square with it's many shops, restaurants and art galleries. This is the perfect location if you like to walk everywhere.

The bathroom is a little tight, but there is plenty of counter space, a jacuzzi tub & a double
shower head. There is a little seating area outside room 101 and a desk/chair with a computer.

Besides the Main Inn there are also River House Rooms & Wharfside Rooms. Some rooms are small so check before you book.

There is a complimentary breakfast served buffet-style in the Main Inn. There is scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, cereal, yogurt, fruit, bagels, muffins, pastries, coffee, juice and more.

There is a lovely bar/restaurant on the ground floor with a piano for entertainment. There is a Happy Hour as well.

Parking is included in the price of your room & there is complimentary Wi-Fi & bicycles.

Another popular package is Christmas Prelude. Book well in advance.

The staff gave us a map & directions to the Festival Events and served us coffee and muffins when we got downstairs too late for breakfast. One morning we were even served coffee out on the nice deck in front of the inn.

There is a trolley (reasonably priced) that takes you on a 45 minute tour of the town. They have tickets at the front desk and the trolley stop is nearby.

We especially want to thank Damien for making our stay at the inn special. We enjoyed chatting with him. He was friendly and extremely helpful.

I woud also like to recommend David's KPT Restaurant at The Boathouse Hotel, 21 Ocean Ave for a nice lunch or dinner. Good food, friendly service & nice atmosphere. Seating on the back deck is very popular.

We would love to welcome you back to the Kennebunkport Inn! Maybe we will see you for the Kennebunkport Festival in 2015!

We stayed here for one night during a tour of New England. It is a beautiful building located at the end of the main street. Car parking is available without extra charge. Our sat nav had some difficulty identifying the exact location, but we found it eventually. It really is quite obvious once you know what you are looking for. The receptionist was extremely friendly and after checking in showed us to our room. Wow! Whilst a little on the small side, it was beautifully furnished and the decor was very modern. No problem for an overnight stop, but it you were staying for a week, you would need more space and storage. After a long drive it was good to get down to the bar for a quick drink (or two). Definitely a great place to stay in Kenebunkport.

Thank you Morrie for your review. Our staff is exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable - thank you for recognizing that! I'm so happy to hear you were "wow"ed by the room. The Riverhouse rooms were renovated over the winter, and we are absolutely thrilled with the result! If you are ever looking for something with a little more space, we do have upgraded room categories that are about 1/3 size larger. Those rooms are going to be renovated this winter. The bar at One Dock is indeed a great place to unwind and start your vacation the right way! I hope the rest of your New England tour was lovely. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments.

First let me start by saying I have stayed here several times and had good experiences. On saturday last week I called to get a room for a family event in June. The room that was available I was unfamiliar with so I asked the person on the phone to send me a picture since I know the inn very well. She said look at the dipiction on the internet. I told her the rooms on the internet are not good dipictions as I have stayed many times. At 300 a night off season in a small inn with not many rooms in the main property is it too much to ask for a picture? I stayed at my mothers on this night and planned my June trip elsewhere. When I did stay last summer (still within the guidelines for a review) if you stay in a room over the deck the music plays loud - just a warning.

Room Tip: Don't pick a room over the deck when they have live music.

Thank you HRHofPA for your review. I am so sorry we were unable to send you a picture of our newly renovated Riverhouse rooms, when you called last week. Unfortunately, we did not have the pictures available yet, as the rooms have just been completed. We would have been happy to send you a picture if they were available. We cherish our repeat guests and it would be unfortunate if you were to not return. If you would like to contact me directly, I would like the opportunity to make this right. I hope we can welcome you back to the Kennebunkport Inn soon.

We rolled into town late without a reservation and we're pretty desperate. The Kennebunkport Inn had a room available and they let us have it--and gave us $30 off the rate! Our room was comfortable and charming, if a little dated in a way that I've come to expect from B and Bs and small inns like this one. The continental breakfast was small but had great granola. All in all I would definitely stay here again!

Thank you JennaMJ for your review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Off season is the perfect time of year to travel to Kennebunkport and receive discounts! The room that you stayed in is certainly more "traditionally" decorated. These rooms are scheduled to get full "facelifts" this coming winter. We are all very excited to see how they turn out! Thank you for your comments on our homemade granola. We find it quite tasty as well. Give us a call and we would be happy to send you the recipe!

This was a great location. The bedroom was spacious & the bed was very comfortable. The only thing we did not care for was the lack of water pressure & the fact the water went all over the place while we tried to shower. Other than that, everyone was very friendly & helpful. We will go back for sure but will not stay here is the water issues aren't taken care of first.

Thank you CocoTheresa84 for your review.
We are in such a lovely central locations, steps away from world class shopping and restaurants. Thank you for your positive comments regarding the spaciousness of the room and the comfort of the bed. However, I would like to express my apologies for the issues you had with your water pressure. Our guests comfort is of utmost importance. We wish you had brought it to our attention during your stay so we could have had our handy maintenance crew take a look! Our showers are a little different - there is a lever to adjust the water pressure to your personal preference. We appreciate your compliments to our staff. Everyone here works hard to make sure our guests are happy and comfortable. I can assure you there are no recurring water issues here. We hope to welcome you back to Kennebunkport!

We loved this hotel. Set in a gorgeous location, we had a room across the square in their wharf side building. We arrived late, so did not see the area in daylight, but we did walk around to see the water & go out to eat. In the morning we walked across the square and had a very nice breakfast in the beautiful main building and then went to the gift shops. Upon checkout we were given a parting gift for the road- salt water taffy & bottles of water.

We'd recommend this place to other travelers, and will stay here again if we're in the area.

What a great staff of people working there. Rooms are quaint, very clean. The food here is excellent and wait staff is extraordinary. When staying here be sure to have dinner at least one night, the bar also serves great drinks.

Room Tip: I had a downstairs room and did not hear any noise from bar area. must be well insulated.
