Kennebunkport Inn

Maine, New England

The hotel

If you’re looking for a romantic getaway in a quintessential New England town, the Kennebunkport Inn fits the bill! Casually elegant with attentive staff, the Inn was once a tea merchant’s mansion and, despite modern updates, captures the appeal of that era perfectly. Stay in the Riverhouse, which is adjacent to the Main Inn or a few steps across Dock Square in their Wharfside Building – both locations are close to a variety of local attractions, restaurants and activities. When you’re not sightseeing, spend a while simply relaxing on the furnished porch or sundeck, soaking up that unique Maine atmosphere. Continental breakfast is complimentary, as for dinner, look no further than The Burleigh, much acclaimed by locals and guests alike.

We love staying at the Kennebunkport in during the holiday season. Beautifully decorated, and appointed. We stay here every year for New Year's Eve, and have never been disappointed. The staff is welcoming, and knowledgeable and the accommodations excellent. We tell all our friends to come with us.

I’ve stayed here numerous times. A few odd things this time. They usually have a decent dinner menu, which is why I stay so during the really cold weather, I can stay indoors. Not this year. Six items to choose from. People were seated and walked out and went to elsewhere. Such a change and disappointment. Also- they’ll give you $20 towards brunch to forego housekeeping services. I thought it was a green initiative and meant to use same linens for the duration of the stay. I was told “no” it means no housekeeping whatsoever. No trash pick up or any other services. I think that’s odd. I hope this isn’t the start of a changing KBPT. Would be so sad. Read less

The perfect location for Christmas Prelude. You can shop in the square, go back to the Inn and drop off your packages and return to the square for more shopping! The lovely holiday decorations certainly will put you in the Christmas mood!

Kennebunkport Inn was an ideal location as a main base for most of the prelude activities. We checked in and parked the car for the duration and walked to all the events we wanted to attend.
