Grand Hotel

Maine, New England

The hotel

Just as you’d picture a New England coastal home, The Grand Hotel has all the gable roofed charm, dove-grey and white exteriors, column-clad porches, and upscale decor that make Maine so instantly recognisable. Perched on Chase Hill, just a stroll from downtown Kennebunkport, this classic retreat may be grand in style, with its own gallery of local artists’ works, but it’s intimate in atmosphere, with just 17 guestrooms to guarantee a homely feel. The home comforts also come in the shape of free WiFi, free parking, and free use of their cruiser bikes, so you can nip down to the shops, cycle off to one of the town’s clam shacks, or head out to explore Kennebunk’s other majestic old homes, once owned by 18th and 19th century captains of industry or shipping.

Our third stay at The Grand! This time was a suite with an indoor and outdoor entrance. It was the perfect location for walking around and dining in town and to have a parking space in the very busy town during the high seasons. Our suite was well appointed, lots of drawer space, large bathroom, fridge and Nespresso machine.

The Grand Hotel was great! We just came back this past weekend and it was the best weekend! The hotel was so clean,conveniently located on the main drag with little breakfast spot across the street. Although they do supply great coffee and pastries every morning. I had called earlier the day of our check in to have a bottle of wine sent to our room and a special note for my husband upon arrival. Not only were they so lovely about it but it was all set up when we walked in. The bikes that they have on property were a nice touch and a great way to explore Kennebunkport. I would defintley recommend the Grand for your stay. We will be going back for sure! Read less
