We arrived at the Kennebunport Inn which is a beautiful old house (mansion) and were told that our room was in the Wharfside unit. The desk attendant took us to the front door of the Inn and pointed out how to get there. I was a little concerned that we were being put in an old dilapidated overflow unit. Was I wrong. The front entrance was always locked since there was no one manning the entrance. Our room was one flight up (no elevator) and we walked into a comfortable, tastefully decorated clean room. Ther room was very cheery and done in blues and whites. Very comfortable bed. Two very nice cushioned white wicker-like chairs (they were really vinyl or plastic) were by the window. The view from our window was of a wharf area. When the tide was in the water was a pretty sight. At low tide it was just mud and trash at the bottom of the basin. The center square was just round the corner from the rooms. Breakfast was at the Inn which was a short walk from the Wharfside unit. There were two types of quiche, two types of french toast and the usual assorted pastries, cereals, coffee, juice, etc. My only complaints were 1) the AC unit was very noisy and 2) there was mold/mildew in one corner of the bathtub were the tub met the wall. In my opinion, mold and mildew in the bathroom are never acceptable in any lodging. All things considered though, it is a very nice place to stay in Kennebunkport and I would heartily recommend it. The question that should be asked however, is do you want to stay in Kennbunkport? The traffic in town was almost always bumper to bumper. The town center is nothing but overpriced tourist shops. You can take a ride to see (from far away) the elder President Bush's summer home, and I believe there are some beaches around. Other than that, we could not find much of anything of interest in the area. A one day stay there is plenty, unless you are there to sit and relax, rather than tour and sightsee.
