Nice hotel with a great location

Posted Dec 1, 2013
Pros: Clean and tastefully decorated room with a gorgeous view.
Cons: My only complaint would be the heating system which was difficult to get to the correct setting-- the temperature gauge didn't have numbers.
Location: Kennebunkport has so many cute shops and restaurants. Lots of wonderful places to walk and ride bikes. We also hiked the Marginal Way in Ogunquit.
We stayed here over Thanksgiving 2013 for two night. Expedia said it was a non-water view room, but it turned out to have a beautiful view of the harbor. The room was clean and bright-- freshly painted with hardwood floors (or fake hardwood) not carpeting. Very tastefully decorated with nearly a full wall of windows overlooking the harbor. The walls and floors are a bit thin. We could hear the people in the next door room and whenever the people above us were walking, but it wasn't a problem. An pretty good breakfast is included with fresh fruit, scones, bagels, eggs, bacon... My only complaint would be the heating system which was difficult to get to the correct setting-- the temperature gauge didn't have numbers. When it's on the system blows constantly, and I had to get up in the night a few times to adjust it.

Christmas shopping tour.

Posted Nov 19, 2013
Pros: Mentioned above, PLUS the room was heated by a gas fireplace which was the crowning touch in ambience!!
Cons: Rooms had new bamboo flooring which could have used a small rug in the center area of the room. A reading light next to the comfortable "easy" chair.
Location: Mentioned above.
Wonderful room overlooking the water with lobster boats departing early every AM. I loved the sound of the diesel engines at idle speed as the boats rounded the curve in the river at the working lighthouse navigational aid; lulled you right back to sleep!! My wife and I stayed for three nights, and pretty much had the complex to ourselves. I think the resort was in the process of closing down for the Winter, but the service and attention to detail was superb. There was a breakfast buffet every AM, which was included with the room. The manager told us upon check in that we might be the only ones staying on Sunday night, so they would prepare a special breakfast basket and deliver it to our room Monday AM. Apparently two other couples stayed over on Sunday night, so the manager advised us that they would do a "mini" hot buffet in the lounge. Should you get the opportunity, this hotel is well worth the visit. The fact that it is in the Town of Kennebunkport,ME just makes the experience more pleasurable, as there are numerous restaurants and shops and you are within 30 minutes of Outlet shopping in Kittery,ME. My wife and I live on the water in Cape Cod, so this was like a mini vacation for us. She was born and raised about 45 minutes North of Kennebunkport, so she knows the area very well. There is something about the State of Maine that is just so pleasing and relaxing; we return several times every year. Hope you take the opportunity to enjoy it as much as we do.

We had a great time relaxing and enjoying the local area. The food at the hotel was great including breakfast buffet and dinner at their restaurant. Very friendly and caring service throughout the entire resort. Recommend highly to others!

Charming Old Hotel

Posted Oct 24, 2013
Pros: The hotel had a wonderful breakfast in the morning. Top notch. The staff is very friendly and attentive.
Cons: Need a good self service elevator. Also, being an old hotel, there were not sufficient outlets for phones, laptop, etc.
Location: Short drive to Kennebunkport
The hotel is a beautiful old waterfront hotel. We stayed in the main house. The room was pleasantly furnished but small by modern standards. No horizontal surfaces to set anything on. Its best feature is location. It is a short ride to downtown. The downside is that the hotel is not for anyone with a walking issue. There were no ramps coming into the hotel. You bring your luggage in up a set of stairs through the front door. Stairs to all floors are narrow and steep. There is an elevator, tiny, and you have to call staff to operate it. However, they are very accommodating. Guest ice is only available on one floor and again stairs to access.

Comfortable hotel in Kennebunkport

Posted Oct 23, 2013
We stayed only one night and found the room to be very clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful as well. They have a nice buffet breakfast for the guests. This is the first place I've stayed where there are Keurig machines in the rooms.
