“Fantastic! Best Breakfast!”
Reviewed June 12, 2011

Hello,

We stayed this weekend with my in-laws who had never been to Maine. This inn is true Kennebunkport Maine. It is not overly romantic or Victorian which my husband was grateful for, while I still enjoyed the charm of a seaside cottage. Relaxed and friendly the Innkeepers were very accommodating and attentive. Being a dog-friendly property I will be the first to say these rooms are ultra clean and comfortably appointed. This is a wonderful choice for families and many rooms have walk in showers which worked out well for my in-laws who couldn't do stairs and big bathtubs. Over all I would rate this 4 stars and my family and I will definitely be returning!

We came for the first time during the hottest week of the summer. Everything was cool, calm, and collected at The Green Heron. Food, service, fellow travellers, everyone and everything was lovely. We are going back again this summer! It was really a great place to take our doxie for the first time. He was made to feel very welcome and the room we had went right out to the garden where he could do his business. All around it was perfect and located near everything we wanted to do or see. Only wish there were some restaurants and maybe a whale watch that Fenway could go to with us. I highly recommend Dan and Tony's place to everyone, with or without pets.

My dad and I spent 2 nights in the little "Shannon" cottage.
It was just perfect.
Lots of space, comfortable beds, quiet little cottage and a wonderful host.
Dan was very helpful, and the food was a real gourmet treat. We kept forgetting to do it but could have come back in the afternoon for tea and fresh baked pastries.
The grounds were well kept, it was convenient to everywhere, but quiet to sleep.

The Green Heron was a lovely surprise! We had a separate cottage on the property which was perfect for our family of 4, and our hosts were very welcoming and knowledgeable. The breakfasts were wonderful, and they have many, many, many return guests - always a good sign of great hospitality. The cozy, family atmosphere was wonderful and is so much more inviting than the 'grand' hotels in the area.

Overall had a great stay at this B&B. Nice and friendly innkeepers. The only downside for me (since I am a sensitive sleeper) was waking up every time anyone flushed the water in their room. It might be expected in older houses. Otherwise-highly recommended for friendliness, cleanliness, and good location!

Kennebunkport isn't huge, but it's very relaxing and certainly scenic .The Green Heron isn't right on the ocean, but it's only a 100 yard walk down the street to crashing waves and a piece of beach. And you do have a view of a small river and inlet right outside the Inn.

Breakfast was delicious each morning. Not award winning, but very solid and the owners are friendly. Seems to be a lot of return customers here, all of which love coming back. Rooms aren't luxurious but they are clean and comfortable, with a good sized shower and no drain problems like you sometimes run into at B&Bs.

One note - it is a bit noisy in the morning when people are waking up and breakfast is being prepared. Not unexpected in an older building.

All in all, a great place to visit and a place that we'd recommend! You won't be wowed, but you'll have a wonderful time. (Also, we ate at Allison's in Kennebunkport which was O.K., Federal Jack's which had a lively atmosphere and pretty decent food, and Pier 77 on Cape Porpoise which had nice views and good food. All recommended).

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Edgewater Inn, formerly known as The Green Heron Inn one of Kennebunkport's historic Inns, is located on Ocean Avenue, in one of the town's most charming neighborhoods. It sits adjacent to an estuarine cove, near the mouth of the Kennebunk river and just around the bend from President George Bush's vacation home on Walkers Point. Overnight stays include a 3-course breakfast, prepared by Chef Jason Grant in the "on the edge" restaurant from eight to noon.The Inn was built in the early 1900's as a boarding house that provided shelter and breakfast for weary travelers. Twelve guest rooms including a cove side cottage, thirty-two seat restaurant. Its location, which combines the beautiful surrounding of the Kennebunk River and the convenience of its proximity to all major Kennebunkport attractions, contributed to its popularity from its early days. That tradition continues today. While relaxation at The Edgewater Inn is an art in itself, activities abound in the surrounding area. Guests enjoy rejuvenating walks along the rocky shore, enjoy the sun on the sandy beach, explore the numerous galleries and shops in Dock Square, watch the wildlife and the birds as they gather near the water next to the inn, or spend a sunny day on one of the nearby golf courses. ... more   less
