“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay with Judy and Wal. We were in cottage number 9, which has a lovely
large room and a kitchenette. The bathroom is a bit small but fine for our needs. The bed was wonderful. I had the best nights sleep of our trip. The breakfasts were all different and we were introduced to food we hadn't tasted before. All were delicious. Judy and Wal were very welcoming and they run a great b& b. We would definitely recommend a stay here to anyone visiting Kennebunkport. The Inn is ideally located, just a short walk from the town centre and all the shops and restaurants.

Stayed November 2012, traveled as a couple

We stayed here over the Columbus Day weekend and were treated like royalty. The cottage was fantastic, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Judi and Walter made us feel like we had been guests forever. Can't wait to go back.

We've been here many times before and each visit confirms the reputation for unsurpassed hospitality and for providing a lovely, spotless, comfortable environment that our hosts, Judi and Walter Hauer, have earned. The breakfasts continue to amaze and satisfy. One can tell by the breakfast table conviviality that everyone is having a grand time. The amenities are first rate.
We'll be back.

The inn was charming, the location is perfect for exploring Kennebunkport. Judi and Walter were gracious hosts and went out of their way to recommend places to visit and help us find them. We would never have seen Porpoise Cove or Ogunquit without their advice. They made us feel welcome and seemed to genuinely enjoy having us. It was fun lingering over breakfast, talking to guests from across the US and overseas. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and efficient. We would happily stay there again.

Lovely stay. Nice touches. Excellent breakfast. Owners/staff very efficient and helpful. Location great, in residential area, short walk to small downtown area. My only negative is that our room had no end tables as the bed was in the middle of two doors--one to a small closet and the other to the bath (and the shower was very tiny). This room, although I don't recall the number, is okay for an overnight stay, but definitely not for anything longer. Most of the other guests were repeat customers, which says a lot about this place. In fact, it was referred to us by someone who was a previous guest.

The guest is correct, room #15 is our tiniest room on the property with a very small bath. This is my least expensive room and there is no room for bedside tables. We have only larger rooms and no other rooms without bedside tables and lamps. We hope these guests will return and try one of our larger upgraded rooms. So glad they enjoyed the rest of their experience here.

We had initially booked 2 nights in room 18. Not only was the room very homey and comfortable but so was the main house. Loved the fact that home made cookies were fresh out of the oven as we were checking in. We got great advice about places to eat and things to do. The location from town is easy walking distance. The other guests at breakfast each morning were such a pleasure to talk too. We were enjoying our stay and the local area so much we decided to inquire about staying another night. We then stayed in renovated cottage #5. It was so perfect that once we came back from our day's activities, we elected to stay in for the evening and just enjoy the space. The bed couldn't be more comfortable and the fireplace was awesome. We would love to come back again!

Only stayed here for 1 night- should have stayed for more! We had the Garden Room with our own decking and the weather was suitable to sit on the loungers Walt brought out for us!The bedroom was exactly as shown in the picture and very comfortable. The breakfast was great - we enjoyed sitting with the other guests and chatting with them and Judi.
