The Nonantum setting is absolutely beautiful and although the wedding was going to be outdoors, the weather did not corporate. The picturesque scene overlooking the water is striking and on a beautiful day - screams "perfect setting". However, the rain would not stop for a Wedding! The entire staff at the Nonantum worked with the family to create a magical wedding space that was so intimate and beautiful that the space seemed to radiate with a love and warmth that could not be duplicated... clearly, this wedding was meant to be indoors. The sparkling lights, the beautiful flowers and picture perfect wedding arch coupled with the sound of the guitar softly playing...I was like a dream! (And I wasn't the one getting married!!)
The Nonantum team led by Tim, made all the hiccups in a Wedding Event pass seamlessly and directed both staff and family as if choreographing a dance.
I look forward to visiting this very special place again. The food, the rooms, the sincerity of everyone that worked there from the Housekeeping staff, to the restaurant staff to the front desk -- every person was "vested" in making our stay at the hotel an experience to remember. They all did a great job at it. Thank you Nonantum...

Room tip: The rooms looking over the lighthouse offer beautiful views. The décor is country chic... very comfortable.

Thank you for the lovely review! The Carter wedding was indeed magical! It is interesting as every bride and her mother pray for picture perfect weather for their big day. After 20 years I can tell you the weddings that take place on rainy days end up being the very best. There is that snow storm mentality of "we are all in this together" and folks pull together and make it a beautiful day no matter what Mother Nature sends our way! The Carter's and their friends did exactly that and it was a wonderful day for all!
Tim Ames is Mr Nonantum and he is the very best wedding coordinator in the business. Nothing ever phases him and there is no emergency that he cannot fix. (while making it look like it is the easiest day of his life!) The rest of the team also excels in their roles here making for a great environment for our workers as well as our guests!
Please come back and see us again soon!
Warm Regards,

Excellent! We would love to have you come back to visit us again very soon! Summer will be here before you know it and Kennebunkport in the summer is really hard to beat!
Our quiet location, just 1/2 mile from downtown is the perfect combination of fun things to do, a peaceful and quiet spot and just a quick walk or shuttle ride downtown. If you like shops, galleries, restaurants and bars, you can be there in a jiffy!
Our breakfasts are legendary around town and many locals come in on a regular basis to see what our very talented Pastry Team has come up with now! Today I was in the kitchen and they were rolling our giant pretzels that looked amazing!
Thanks for writing!

Room was spacious, clean and well equipped. New bathroom with walk-in shower. Excellant view from the second floor balcony. Every staff member from the front desk, to housekeeping were very helpfull and friendly. Stayed for a wedding party, but will return again just to enjoy the local attractions and this excellant resort.

Excellent stay, great value. We enjoyed great service and a super breakfast that was included every morning. Had a small issue with the room when we arrived that they could not have been nicer about. Hotel was clean and the staff was super friendly. The cleaning staff was very attentive and accommodating. The pub was great, the main restaurant was not open yet so we went to the pub one night. Great central location. Easy to get to. Mabels across the street is a FANTASTIC seafood restaurant. all in all we had zero complaints and were 100% satisfied.

Room tip: ask for a water view

One hundred per cent satisfied is what we shoot for!
Our early season value pricing makes visits in April, May and even part of June very affordable! Our restaurant 95 Ocean is now open for the season too and the food is getting loads of thumbs up!
Our super friendly staff makes sure each of our guests feels their every need is taken care of almost before our guests realize what they need!
Please come back to see us again!
Warmly,

We love welcoming back our repeat guests! It is such an honor with all the fabulous places you could go, that you choose to come back to The Nonantum. Thank you!
We have spent a lot of time redecorating rooms the past couple winters and things are looking very spiffy around here. Our on staff decorator Liz has such a great eye and it is all in the details! She really is amazing!
It is easy to get anywhere you need to go from The Nonantum as we are only half a mile from all the fun of downtown!
Thanks so much for writing!
