We stayed one night- it was clean, comfortable, and in a great location. Breakfast was great, and the owner is really sweet. Not exactly glamorous, but a pretty house with so older charm. I would stay here again.

My wife and I recently spent three nights at Chetwynd House and had a delightful stay. This place was the first B&B in Kennebunkport (opened in the 1970’s) and has had the same owner-family all that time. We have stayed here in past years, but it has been 12 years since the last time. It continues to be a quintessential New England B&B experience!

Kennebunkport is a great little town to visit and staying at this B&B reminded us of staying at our favorite aunt’s house, but with our own private bathroom! The house was originally built in the 1840’s and it has been very well restored and maintained. The house is decorated with antiques and old style furnishings to give you a homey feeling, yet the bathrooms are convenient with modern fixtures and good water pressure.

Breakfast is a highlight of the stay—it is always cooked hot and fresh, varies from day to day, and is served on china in the dining room at a common table to allow for wonderful conversation among the guests. The house is only steps away from the center of town with its shopping and restaurants (and my wife would also mention it is next door to Carla’s, her favorite women’s dress shop). It has parking on the property so you don’t have to find a parking spot in town during the busy summer.

The B&B was originally opened by Susan, a retired school teacher, and is now run by her son, Bob, a retired military man and hospitality executive. Bob has continued to make this one of our all time favorite B&Bs.

We tayed or a full week. Location was perect to enable a nice walk to several resturants.

Room was clean and tidy, but simple. Probably nothing seriously changes since the late 70's

Breakfast had a slight variation each day (you could have your eaggs done a different way).

Bob is nice and runs the place with millitary percision.

A friend and I wanted to visit Maine for a girls getaway. We stumbled across this quaint Bed and Breakfast. It was very cozy and the breakfast was awesome, pancakes the first morning and French toast the next with eggs, bacon and fruit. The host, Bob, was cute as ever and very sweet. The rooms and bathroom were decent and clean. The location is perfect, Kennebunkport is an awesome location. It was just enough for what we needed, a nice break from "city" life.

We booked the Chetwynd House for a last minute, mid-week get away to Kennebunkport and we were very happy with our stay. Bob Knowles, the proprietor, greeted us when we arrived, he was very organized and check-in was a breeze.

We stayed in the Knowles room which occupies the entire 3rd floor of the inn. It included a large bed, lots of room, a fridge, AC and a private bathroom. We only turned the AC on once during our stay, the rest of the time having the windows open and letting the breeze blow through was perfect, even during a hot week in August. As an older home, there were a few squeaks and creeks, but nothing that disrupted our stay.

The location was amazing, especially for the cost of the room. We pulled the car in when we arrived and didn't even think about getting into it again until we left town. The Inn is on a side street right in the heart of Kennebunkport so it's quiet, yet in less than 5 minutes you're at all of the restaurants and shops. There were some beaches not too far, probably about a mile away. We also went on some nice jogs along the coast and through stunning neighborhoods. Jogging down to Walker Point (the Bush Compound) was my favorite and took about 30 minutes round trip.

Bob was very knowledgeable, filling us in on his favorite places for Lobster prepared lots of different ways. He was a wonderful host, great at being available when we had questions and knowing when to give the guests privacy.

I would definitely recommend the Chetwynd House to others looking to be right in town on their stay in Kennebunkport.
