We stayed at Green Heron Inn towards the end of July '12 for four nights - and wish it had been longer. The new owners are improving the property - which appeared in many areas to have been a little neglected over the years. There was little disruption for us considering new flooring was being laid etc.
It seemed to us (and having read one of the recent reviews) that a few longstanding "regulars" are not too much in favour of the changes - shame from what we could see and hear of the future plans - all will be great improvements - some people cannot deal with change to well unfortunately.
Breakfast to us was heaven - a good choice of savoury and well sampled blueberry pancakes. Every day there were specials that were always tempting with excellent flavours.
As far as location is concerned don't expect to "fall out of bed" and every restaurant/coffee shop/attraction to be on the doorstep - most times a walk or drive to Kennebunk is needed - it is just under a mile away and for us the walk was welcome.
When we are in this part of Maine again - the Inn will be our first choice of accommodation and that has got to be the best recommendation!
- 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
