Just a wonderful facility .. in a fantastic setting .. staffed by service-oriented people .. in a very convenient location !

Hats off especially to Rick who is one of the most attentive bartenders I have ever had the pleasure to visit with across a bar. Had a Jameson night cap staged for me every night .. as my wife and I arrived back at the hotel .. with a “bent” straw in the glass for good measure. Rick even made sure the bartender filling in on his night off had my drink and bent straw available for me as we arrived back at the hotel. Service. Service. Service.

Stayed: July 2017, traveled as a couple

Thanks for writing! What nice remarks!
Our service oriented staff is what makes The Nonantum different from all the rest! Rick is an awesome and amazing bartender who takes fantastic care of all of our guests. I love hearing that he told his co-worker about your special drink. That attention to detail is the sort of thing that you cannot teach someone - it is a level of customer service that you just need to feel and believe in.
We look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Your Jameson night cap will be waiting!
All The Best,
Jean Ginn Marvin

this was our second visit to the nonantum and we felt welcomed
it was a perfect spot for our 4 days of exploration
kennebunkport is a wonderful spot to stay and visit and well located to traverse up and down route 1
from the ogunquit playhouse, the museum of american art, to cape porpoise and beyond
everyone we came in contact with at nonantum were helpful and friendly
the rooms were well appointed and kept spotless and all amenities you would want were available

Kennebunkport is a terrific place to call home base when you are visiting southern Maine. While Kennebunkport itself has loads a neat places to visit and cool things to see and do, there are lots of great towns like Ogunquit, York, Portland and Freeport that are all striking distance from us - fun stuff!
Please come back and see us again soon! We are open until Mid December when we close for our annual siesta until April.
Thanks for writing!

Setup a weekend away, for our 20th anniversary, the staff were, again, super helpful and friendly. Making sure that my wife and I were satisfied and we can't wait to go back next year. We love this area.

Hi Albert:
We love being the go to place for celebrations like Anniversaries! Our team really appreciates that you choose The Nonantum and we take very seriously our role in ensuring your time here is super special!
There are lots of fun things to do in the Kennebunkport area so our guests come to see us often (many several times a year!) but they never run out of fun things to do.
Happy Anniversary! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Kind Regards,

The Nonantum is a grand hotel, having opened in 1884 when Kennebunkport was just starting to attract visitors. The hotel has expanded to something more than 100 rooms, most with views of the Kennebunk River. Several renovations have created a lovely resort with all the modern amenities including a heated swimming pool and fast, free Wifi. Service is superb, and a full breakfast is included. The only nit that I am compelled to pick is that the resort's restaurant was not open during my late-October vacation. Fortunately, Beckman's Pub in the main building was open for pub food.

Room Tip: Most rooms have nice view of the Kennebunk River.

Hi Rob:
We really appreciate all your kind words! The history of the hotel really is fascinating and as part of our Nonantum 101 course (required of all new employees) our staff learns all about our very colorful history. Fun stuff!
So sorry our main dining room wasn't open but as you noted we do have great food in Heckman's Pub. Our dining room is open from May until the third week of October each year. Please come back when the dining room is open as we have awesome food!

Had a fantastic two day stay at the hotel. Staff was really friendly, smiles all the time! Food was outstanding, best meals I have had in a long time! Room was bright and fresh, the sheets are very soft. Room temperature was very comfortable. I really liked the hard wood floors and area rug under the bed. Art was nice. Overall really great stay, can't wait to return!

Thank you Jamey!
We really appreciate your remarks! All of our staff works tirelessly to insure our guests have an amazing stay every time!
Our kitchen has really stepped up their game this year, lead by Chef Steve Sicinski. He has raised the bar and that team has stepped in to line behind him and the product has been amazing. We have always had good food, but now it is off the charts!
Our art is from Wendy Webster Good, a local artist. She and he husband Tim (a local firefighter) come and personally frame and hang the work and I think it looks fantastic!
We can’t wait to welcome you back again!
Warmly,
Jean Ginn Marvin
