“Wonderful stay at the Maine Stay”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

Spent two nights of our summer vacation at the Maine Stay Inn in Kennebunkport. The cottage room was cozy for 2 adults and our teenage son, but very clean and comfortable. The house was absolutely beautiful and the breakfasts were very good. The owners were very friendly and went out of their way to take care of our son's gluten-free dietary needs.

The food was delicious, the owners friendly and informative, the location perfect within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Was my second stay - 1st time at the cottages - liked the rooms in the B & B - mattresses were kinder to my problematic back- would go back again and again

Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay at this inn. We were in the cottages and it was well equipped, quiet, and very clean. Our beds were very comfortable and the location was great because you could easily walk to town. We really enjoyed the superb hospitality of Walter and Judi who gave us advice on a great lobster dinner, beaches and other attractions in the area. The girls really enjoyed the freshly baked cookies every afternoon!

Where to start? We were greeted with genuine smiles and a very clean modern room with all of the expected amenities of 5 star accommodations, minus a hot tub. Service was very personalized...including dining and beach suggestions. Meals were prompt, well balanced and most importantly, yummy. Very close to everything...and property has a great yard to relax in, which includes a hammock and very nice tables. They provided all necessities for the beach including parking passes, which were free of charge. It is difficult to convey in words how absolutely accommodating the inn keepers, Judi, Walter, and Johanna, and the rest of the staff, were towards our family's needs. We will now be making this trip a yearly tradition. Thank you so much. Audrey, Ignacio, & Laura

The Maine Stay Inn and Cottages is a great place to stay in Kennebunkport Maine. Just a short walk from the center of town this is a great place to experience all Kennebunkport has to offer. The cottages are spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and delivered to the front door by the owner himself. This was my second stay at the Maine Stay and I will certainly stay again the next time I am in Kennebunkport.

We arrived to the aroma of fresh baked cookies and ice cold herbal tea on our recent stay. We have been enjoying the Maine Stay for close to thirty years and the current innkeepers, Walter and Judi, are by far the most attentive to every detail and have brought a certain elegance to the inn. We stayed in cottage five and were delighted with its elegance, fine linens, jacuzzi tub, roomy shower with three shower heads and a room beautifully decorated. Attention was given to special dietary needs for a nice breakfast in bed each morning. My husband had called ahead to have flowers ordered and put in the room. A beautiful bouquet of roses were welcoming us ordered by Johanna, reservations to our favorite restaurant were taken care of and all we had to do is enjoy. As always we left rejuvenated and eager to return.

Great place for a short stay.

Good location close to restaurants and shops.

Breakfast was so-so, but everything else was good.

Inn keepers were friendly and attentive.
