My husband and I stayed at the 1802 House over Labor Day Weekend. We could not have picked a better place to stay! Terri the hostess was amazing. She welcome us when we arrived, made us feel very comfortable, and helped us throughout our stay with information about the area and suggestions of where to go. The common spaces and rooms were very nice and beautifully maintained. The highlight of our stay was breakfast each morning! Terri and her staff make everyone feel welcome and comfortable at the communal breakfast table. And the breakfasts were beyond delicious! I am still thinking about the baked plum and yogurt we were served. We enjoyed everything! Overall the stay far exceeded our expectations and we look forward to returning!

Hi Katie,

Thank you for choosing the 1802 House to celebrate Silas' birthday! It was so nice to meet you both. We really appreciate your very kind review and are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The baked plums do appear to be very popular with our guests - and are a personal favourite of mine too.

We hope to see you both again soon.

Best wishes,
Teri, Innkeeper

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the 1802 House Staff was more than accommodating, the room and common areas were beautiful and the food was excellent!
I really appreciate Teri's help with the area and she is an excellent Inn keeper.

We chose 1802 House for a short honeymoon trip, and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The accomodations were outstanding, and just a short walk from downtown Kennebunkport (and Kennebunk, for that matter). Most importantly, Teri was the perfect hostess - all of her recommendations for restaurants and activities in the area were spot on, and the breakfast dishes prepared each morning never failed to please.

Most importantly, Teri repeatedly went out of her way to make sure our trip was perfect. For instance, before heading into town one morning, we spoke with Teri about wanting to take a walk along the marginal way in the nearby town of Ogunquit. I mentioned in passing that I had heard about a trolley between Kennebunkport and Ogunquit, which I planned on looking into later in the afternoon. By the time we returned from town, Teri had already put together a map referencing each of the trolley lines we would need to take to reach Ogunquit.

The bottom line is this - if you're looking for the perfect B & B in Kennebunkport, look no further than 1802 House. We definitely plan on returning.

Hi Gregg and Lexi,

Thank you so much for your very kind review. We are so glad that enjoyed your honeymoon getaway here in Kennebunkport and at the 1802 House. We wanted to own a small Inn so that we could ensure that all of our guests get a good quality of personalized service when staying with us. We also think that the second 'B' in B&B is really important too and should be fun as well. So we do splash out on the breakfasts. Everything is cooked fresh from scratch each morning using local ingredients. The guest reviews tell us that they love it so it's worth the extra attention on our part!

Once again, our best wishes to you both on a long and happy future together. We hope to see you again when your travels bring you back to Maine.

Take care,
Teri & Roger, Innkeepers

My husband and I stayed at the 1802 House this passed weekend (8/23-25) primarily based on the recommendations on TripAdvisor. We couldn't have made a better choice. We enjoyed everything about the inn from our room, the common space, the relaxing outdoor areas to the great breakfasts. We were very surprised to learn that Terri and Roger had only been innkeepers for a little over a year, we thought they had years of experience. They both were extremely gracious and helpful in recommending things to do in and around the area. Terri's breakfasts are fabulous--you won't need to get lunch! The ten minute walk into town was a perfect way to stretch our legs. We look forward to another visit.

Hi Pat,

Thank you so much for your very kind review. We are getting a lot of new guests this season who are booking from TripAdvisor so we can't thank you enough for sharing your experience here too! It's high praise to hear you say that we don't appear new to this innkeeping adventure. We've spent years ourselves staying in B&B's so had a really good idea about how we wanted to run ours and what type of experience we wanted our guests to enjoy while staying with us. We're getting such wonderfully positive feedback from our guests so appears to be working well!

It was so nice to meet you and Tim. We will look forward to seeing you both again in the future!

Best wishes,
Teri & Roger, Innkeepers

1802 House is on a quiet side street in Kennebunkport a 15 minute walk from Dock Square.
The rooms are beautifully decorated, the morning breakfast is wonderful. We very much enjoyed the conversation at the 8 person table in the dining room. Teri is very welcoming and friendly. This is a perfect place to stay. Don't forget to try dinner at Earth at Hidden Pond==top notch.

It's impossible to improve perfection, but Terri and Roger certainly tried very hard. The 1802 house balances charm with function. Our room was very cozy and relaxing, as all the common areas of the Inn. The place exsudes rest and relaxation. Our host Teri knows how to please the most discerning palet with wonder breakfast receipes , home made muffins and coffe Starbucks would envy. We felt we were not in a hotel, but house guests in their private home. All activites are at your doorstep. The Inn is a short walk to the center of Kennebuckport, with all the great resturants, shopping and beaches. Golf is literally in your front yard, with the beautiful Cape Arundel Club. If you don't make the 1802 House your Maine destination, you are passing up one of lifes little treasures.

Dear Geoffrey and Bernadette,

Thank you so much for your very kind review. We work very hard to provide our guests with accommodations that are modern, comfortable and not too far away from the traditional feel of an 1802 colonial home. With the help of our guests this summer, we have come a long way in getting the word out about how convenient we are to Dock Square while having the advantage of being in a secluded and peaceful location!

We will look forward to seeing you both again soon. Toby says hi too (woof-woof!).

Best wishes,
Teri

I hesitate to share my heartfelt love for this beautiful B&B tucked between a golf course and historic Kennebunkport, ME, because now I run the risk of letting the secret out. But now you know!

Teri & Roger are gracious and welcoming with the genuine gift of hospitality. Rooms are lovely, and breakfast is so good we had to walk into town every day to work off the calories!

We enjoy meeting people from all over the world and hearing their stories during the 9 am breakfast. It's not inexpensive, but it's a memory maker and that's priceless to us.

Hi Anne,

Thank you so much for your kind review. Our repeat guests have been wonderful this year with their praise for the Inn. Our competitive advantage really is our size (small with personal touches), our location (quiet, quiet, quiet - and 5 min walk to Dock Square), good hospitality and the comfort and cleanliness of the rooms. It's working well for us. And, while we're not competing on price, we do ensure that we are competitively priced when compared to other properties in Kennebunkport.

It was so nice to see you and Corey. We will look forward to seeing you again next summer and can't wait to hear all about the new addition to the family!

Take care,
Teri & Roger, Innkeepers
