The beautiful view is matched only by the smiling and very professional faces. All elements of service at the resort were outstanding. I will highly recommend the Nonantum to everyone that I speak to.

The title of your review "A Passion for Service" sums up very nicely what we require of all of our staff. For years I have known that we can teach people all the skills needed to run our award winning dining room, create the food and beverage served at our events and food outlets, decorate, clean and maintain our beautiful rooms, check people in and out, maintain our grounds and physical plant, create marketing and sales plans, run our busy activities program and all of the other things that occur each day but what we cannot do is teach people to be nice! They have to come to us with the nice gene!
I very much appreciate you sharing your experience with all that you see! We pledge to wow all your referrals!
Thanks for writing!
All The Best,
Jean Ginn Marvin

My family (6 adults & infant) attended a wedding at the Nonantum. We were blown away by the beauty and intimacy of the venue. The food was excellent and every single staff member was engaging, professional and thorough.

Hello Stephen:
It is wonderful to hear your family all had a nice visit at The Nonantum! I really love your words - "We were blown away by the beauty and intimacy of the venue". So sweet!
Thanks for the positive feedback on our hardworking staff. They absolutely are (across the board) "engaging, professional and thorough"! From our high schoolers taking on their first job, to the old hands who have been here 20 or 30 plus years, each is committed to a level of professionalism that means a visit to the Nonantum is relaxing, calm and just the way life should be!
Please come back and see us again soon!
Warm Regards,
Jean Ginn Marvin
Innkeeper

This is a great place to stay. The room that we had was charming and faced the river. The breakfasts were excellent and free if you booked directly with the inn. There was nothing lacking that you could want for breakfast.

Thanks so much for writing!
Our breakfast is such a favorite of our guests (and our staff!) Every day it is different. Our head baker seems to dislike making the same thing twice so as a result each morning has delicious options waiting on our buffet.
The buffet closes to our guests at 10 each morning and then the buffet is refilled and our staff comes in for family breakfast. Occasionally (as happened this morning) a guest shows up after 10:30 and they just join in with our family breakfast! Always good for a few laughs as we tease them about having to clear their own dishes!
Please come back and see us again soon!
Warm Regards,
Jean Ginn Marvin

From NC and our destination was Kennebunkport, Maine for lobster & relaxation...we had a wonderful time at your resort!
The dinner (server Tyler was excellent!) and free breakfast was great!
Also ate at Allison's and Mabel's which were both amazing!
Used the resort's "free" shuttle twice and Bruce & Milton shared a lot of local history with us and took us by the "Bush" home & provided interesting stories!
Absolutely loved the resort...so glad it was still "off season rates" so we could stay there!
We actually got a corner room 2nd floor facing riverside...our view was same as pic on website...breathtaking and exactly where I wanted to relax!
Highly recommend...going first wk in June was not crowded & shopping was fun!
(and very nice staff...shout out to Guy!)
Pics below is view inside our room, resort lobby & from our balcony!

Hello Lisa:
It sounds as though you really enjoyed your visit here! Awesome!
You hit on so many of the high points of a visit to Kennebunkport - great restaurants (especially our own 95 Ocean!) the beautiful Bush Estate just down the street, excellent shopping (no chain stores - just unique fun boutiques), and just a lovely, relaxing place to enjoy some R&R!
Your suggestion to come in June before school gets out is an excellent one. Another great option is in September. Beautiful weather and great deals!
Hope to see you then!
Warmly,
Jean Ginn Marvin

The room was nicely remodeled by local students in a green-friendly style. It was a very comfortable place to stay, enjoy the lounge, the bar and the breakfast. A nice walk into the main part of town or out on the point. Our only complaint was that the walls were paper thin. They seemed to know this as they provided earplugs - but they only do so much.

Hi Gaye:
Thanks so much for taking the time to write and let me know about your experience at The Nonantum! I really appreciate it!
As we are a 136 year old property, sound can be a challenge. In those days horse hair was used for insulation!For that reason every room has a sound machine, as well as earplugs. Some people need them and some people do not. It all depends what you are used to, and who your neighbors are on a given day. Another factor is whether or not you are using heat or air conditioning. The slight noise from these units often muffles any noises that may occur within the building. Sometimes when folks are away from home they sleep a little less soundly and the use of the above outlined items seems to insure a quiet, restful night.
Please come back and enjoy all the wonderful attributes we offer!
All The Best,
Jean Ginn Marvin
