1802 House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 25 Kennebunkport B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We recently returned from a fall foliage trip to New England and by luck found the 1802 house on a bed and breakfast web page. We love to travel both here and around the world, and when we can, we stay in bed and breakfasts. The 1802 House ranks in the top five of places we have stayed both here and abroad. Terry, our host, was absolutely perfect with her recommendations and her wonderful gourmet breakfasts. Our room was absolutely lovely and luxurious! The inn was immaculate and so tastefully decorated. I cannot say enough how wonderful our stay was there.

Greetings Jerry,

I can't thank you enough for your very kind words and praise for the Inn. I'm sure I told you how much we love this property and being in Kennebunkport. It's such a pleasure to hear from our guests how special they think it is as well.

We enjoyed meeting you and Judi and hope that you will get the chance to come back and visit in the future when you are next on the east coast visiting with your friends and family.

Best wishes to you both!
Teri, Innkeeper

Everything was perfect except the limited amount of time we had! My girlfriend and I came into town on a whim after a cousin's recommendation while driving up the coast. Our visit may have been at the start of off-season but we still were lucky to get their last room!

The room was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. It was cold enough that we got to use the fireplace, which was a huge plus!

One of the absolute best features is proximity to restaurants and bars. We walked into town for dinner, drinks and a little Karaoke! The other best feature? Teri! She is so sweet and personable!

This was our first visit to Kennebunkport, and will not be the last. We will return again and when we do, it will be off season again. It is the perfect time to get a real feel for the town and the locals! The autumn coast and crisp air, mixed with a cozy fireplace and warm locals can't be beat. Strongly recommend hitting up Kennebunkport and 1802!

Room Tip: We had the smallest room in the house and it was perfect!

Hi Adamo,

You and Britt did have a short visit, but we are so pleased to here that you enjoyed it so much! Thank you for your very kind review - it means a lot to us that you took time to do.

I'm with you, I love Kennebunkport in the autumn when things start quieting down. There's still loads to see, eat, drink and do and we are only a short stroll away from the heart of it all. We will look forward to seeing you again for longer (??) next time.

All the best to you both,
Teri, Innkeeper

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in October. Working with Teri on the booking was a breeze she's so great to work with and a fantastic host. The room was perfect we stayed in the Sebago Suite wonderful bathroom, comfy bed and a great sitting room with fireplace . The Inn is located a short walk from downtown which is great after a big meal. Teri's breakfasts were delicious and a great way to start the day. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Sebago Suite is the biggest of the rooms

We cannot recommend the 1802 house highly enough. We had a wonderful couple of nights stay back at the beginning of October. Teri was a wonderful host (there to greet us even though we turned up about 5 hours later than we had said!) - recommending great places for us to eat, and booking us a place on a lobster boat which was fantastic fun. Our room was very comfortable and clean, and to top it all off the breakfast was fantastic. We definitely hope to return one day.

This was our second time we have stayed here, such a beautiful place. The rooms are gorgeous - decorate so lovely - and our bed was very comfortable - which I could not had said about other places we had stayed previously.

Teri was a wonderful host, she is very knowledgeable about the area plus very pleasant to talk with!

My husband and I stayed at the 1802 House for our 6-year anniversary and had a wonderful time. Teri was a fabulous host and gave us a lot of great suggestions for things to do, places to eat, etc. She even provided us chairs, towels, and a parking pass to the best beach in the area...we had such a great time there! We stayed in the biggest suite and it was really lovely having a TV and couch, HUGE jacuzzi tub, and private porch. The only thing that I felt could have been improved upon was the quality of the suite itself. Although it was very large and had a lot of amenities, I felt like there were other rooms in the house that were quite a bit newer and nicer. The suite seemed a bit old...it could use an update. And for being the biggest suite and the most expensive, I think this would be a nice improvement. Other than that, it was a fabulous place and we had a great stay!

Hi Courtney,

Good to hear from you. I hope that you and Jared are both well. Thank you so much for taking time to give us your review. As you know, we purchased the inn last year and have been working on remodeling but only so much we can get done with the time we have had. All of the guest rooms got new luxury bedding and we were able to get three of the six that most needed a remodel done over the winter months when things were quiet. In addition we did the main sitting areas and hallway (upstairs and down). And of course, as our guests always comment, we have focused on ensuring that everything is spotlessly clean throughout the Inn.

Now that things are quieting down this season, we are just getting ready to start remodeling the last three rooms, including the suite. While it's in very good condition from a carpet, paint and wallpaper perspective, the décor is dated as you say. By the end of January 2014, we will have completely remodeled the entire inn...phew! :-)

I will be sending photos in our newsletters as we complete the remodels and I would love to get your feedback when you see them so please do email me with your thoughts if you get a chance.

Thank you again for choosing the 1802 House for your Anniversary stay. We hope you will come back to visit soon.

Best wishes,
Teri, Innkeeper
