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.

Lived up here for almost five years and always wanted to stay at the Grand—and it didn’t disappoint! The view, the atmosphere, the decor, the fantastic staff—we only wished we booked another night! We plan on coming back in the warmer weather so we can enjoy the balcony.

Stayed here overnight in a 1 bedroom Maine New England style home. The room is well decorated with basic amenities, updated and furnished, decent sized bathroom, with limited parking. No breakfast offered in the hotel, but available nearby. Enjoyed the stroll of Kennebunk from the hotel.
