“A historic gem in Kennebunkport”
Such a quaint hotel, with a real home-like feel. Very friendly staff. Cute rooms. Free wireless internet access. Great continental breakfast. Great location. Reasonably priced - what else can I say???? You'll love it!
“Best dinner we have ever had!”
We have eaten wonderful meals from Chicago to San Francisco to New York...Kennebunk Inn beats everything we have had. The rooms are charming and quite comfortable. But the dining room cannot be missed. We have eaten there multiple times and look forward to it for months before our arrival. Typically our party will order several different offerings during each course just to sample them all...Yum! Most affordable gourmet cuisine in the U.S.
“If you're looking for New England charm...”
then this inn is it. Not long on modern luxury hotel conveniences, it's quaint, cozy and inviting. The staff are very friendly and warm, and I felt very much at home there. And the food is fabulous. It was a perfect week-long retreat for us, and I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling to the area.
“A GREAT OLD INN”
Despite being over 200 years old and having the creaky wooden floors to prove it, the Kennebunk Inn was most comfortable and relaxing. We felt as if we were guests in a country estate blessed with a wonderful restaurant on site. The home is large enough not to feel cramped and the lobby and sitting areas provide great nooks for private conversation or reading. The town is well situated to visit Kennebunkport and the coast just a few miles away. The restaurant is really very good and creative.
“Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful”
Delightful, well maintained, old, old Inn with beautiful flowers and landscape. Excellent service, friendly staff, each room decor is different and unique. Owned by chefs who have a classy,well known, reservations require gourmet restaurant/dining room on the main floor. Our greatest regret was that we were there on the 2 days a week that they are closed.
My wife and I recently took a trip to southern Maine in early May. We enjoyed our stay at this inn because of a delicious food and professional/knowledgable staff. We felt very welcomed by the people of this town. We saw that the other rooms were being renovated. Our room had a brand new mattress and a free wireless internet service. My wife loved the garden and took many pictures of this inn of a long history.
“Older is still better.”
Our recent two night visit to the Kennebunk Inn was everything it was advertised as. We were warmly greeted and escorted to our suite. The 200 year old Inn has been well maintained over the years but still has that old style feeling to it. The wooden floors creak as you walk across them but the room was very quiet. Free internet access was speedy and a bonus for such an old building. The food at the Inn was amazing but a little pricey for family dining. The service was great. The chef came out of the kitchen a talked to my son about cooking in general and being a chef. (The waitress tipped him off that my son is in a high school Iron Chef cook off). The only warning I offer is that if you are disabled this is probably not the hotel for you. While the building is extremely well protected with full fire sprinklers an a fire alarm system, due to the age of the building handicapped access could be an issue and would definitely limit your ability to fully explore this Maine treasure.
“Great Base for a Vacation”
We thoroughly enjoyed our Maine vacation in July, 2008, and the Kennebunk Inn was a key to it. The staff was helpful and friendly. The accommodations were comfortable for an establishment with parts dating to 1799, which added to the charm of the Inn. A great variety of food in walking distance or a short drive. And Parson's beach, among other beaches, is only a short drive. Parson's beach is like having a private beach because it is private, with free, limited access by non-residents. Free, bus service to Kennebunkport was a plus. We would love to return!!
“A wonderful experience!”
Spending the night at the Kennebunk Inn was more than a night's sleep, it was an experience. My husband and I were on vacation with our two adult children. Our daughter is extremely picky and she said this was the best place we stayed in New England. Our family room actually had two rooms. One had a queen four-poster and the other had antique twin beds. The beds were so comfortable that we all had a hard time getting up the next morning. It is an old inn from the 1800's so don't expect everything to be modern. The hostess was terrific. She took us to our room and after seeing us she sensed that the first room wouldn't be the most comfortable so she gave us another room. The first room only had one bedroom with a daybed and trundle in the sitting room, and a clawfoot tub. Since there were four of us and I have a disability which makes getting in and out of a tub difficult I was delighted that the second room had a walk-in shower. There are some pretty steep stair to reach the second floor where all the rooms are. That and no coffee in the rooms were the only downers. The restaurant in the Inn is amazing. We got in just before the kitchen was closing but they did not rush us and gave first class service. The food was delish. Gourmet at not unreasonable prices. Will definitely stay there again when in the area, only will stay longer next time.
“A Delightful Quaint Inn”
The Kennebunk Inn is a delightful, quaint Inn with excellent service and attention to the traveler's needs. The service reminded us of a B & B - just on a larger scale. Yup! (In our best Maine-speak) We'll definitely stay there again.
