“Great location & value for the money”
Reviewed August 4, 2007

Great location, right around the corner from Dock Square. Bob the innkeeper is great...attentive without being overbearing. The inn is a great value for the money. It is not a luxury inn, but it is very clean and you cannot beat the location. The home cooked breakfast every morning was wonderful, served on heirloom china in the dining room. Each morning we had a fruit cup, etiher a cinnamon bun or pancakes, and bacon, eggs and toast, juice, tea and/or coffee. The bedroom was appointed with traditional poster bed, federal dresser and desk with damask bedcover. The mattress, however, was hard as a rock and the pillows were flat and uncomfortable. The bathroom was small, very clean, although rather outdated. The TV was an old model with no remote control. Overall, the inn is a great value for the money, especially with its location. You literally turn the corner and you are in Dock Square. There are no fluffy pillows, flowers in the room, or afternoon tea/cordials. But for the money, you get a clean, rather comfortable room with a fabulous location. And, again, Bob is a great guy who goes out of his way to make you feel welcome without overstepping.

My wife and I spent four relazing and engaging days in Kennebunkport over the July 4th weekend this year. We were looking to vacate the Boston work scene and also get a deal. The Chetwynd House Inn covered both and more. Bob Knowles knows the business and is a veteran at this Innkeeper thing. He has created some ingenious ways to make himself available while not always being around. He cooks up a mean and ever-flowing breakfast and has probably 'kissed the Blarney Stone'. He also has a 'free Tuesday' offering that sealed the deal for us.
While staying at the Chetwynd House Inn we met two couples from foreign locations (Canada and New Jersey) and shared some interesting conversations about the relative cost of a gallon (liter) of gas (petrol) to traveling across Tunisia to having to pay sons to come on vaction with their parents.
Just a block outside the center of Kennebunkport the Chetwynd House Inn provides walking access to all the local Kennebunkport restaurants and shops. We visited a micro brewery, experienced a uniquely-prepared and delicious lobster salad, tasted some great clams and had the time to truly enjoy the food from venues that did justice to the downeast sunsets.
We discovered a small beach that did not require a parking pass and stuck our feet in the water,watched the younsters playing in the tidal pools and sportpersons fishing off the jetties.
After five o'clock when the parking ban was no longer in force we walked along the larger streatches of beach, accompanied by dog owners and folks wanting to reconnect with the ocean.
In Kennebunkport there are some gorgeous Inns and houses, beautiful venues to experience nature and oddities like the hanger full of antiques.
From our location we could travel north to Biddeford and Old Orchard and south to Olgonguit and Kittery.
Bob will provide directions and offer his informed suggestions about places to eat and things to see.
All-in-all we felt that we recieved great value by staying at the Chetwynd House Inn.
