Kennebunk Maine Hotels
Kennebunk is home to one of the most highly regarded hotels in New England, the White Barn Inn. A romantic, exquisite stay is yours to be
had here on 37 Beach Avenue. The service at the White Barn Inn is impeccable from the moment you pull in and are greeted by the valet. You're assisted
with your bags, quickly taken through check-in and escorted to your room. Complimentary champagne is offered after you are given a tour of your room and
introduced to all of the amenities to be enjoyed.
Relax on luxurious bedding, enjoy the heated pool, borrow one of the inn's bikes to ride around town or to the beach, take in some spa services,
delight in afternoon tea and dine in their gourmet restaurant on a meal you likely won't forget soon (or ever!)
Definitely one of the most pricey accomodations in Maine at $500 to $1000+ a night in the high season, those who go feel it is absolutely worth it and can't
wait to return. I know the White Barn Inn tops my list of Kennebunk Maine hotels - definitely one for the bucket list!
In stark contrast to the White Barn Inn is the Franciscan Guest House also located on Beach Avenue in Kennebunk. I'm not quite sure that this really
falls into the category of "Kennebunk Maine hotels" but it is a modest accomodation for a very reasonable price for the area. This guest house is like
a dorm with private bathrooms. Most beds are doubles and twins, with some queens. It is clean but not spotless, and comfortable but dated.
The really wonderful part about the Franciscan Guest House is its location. The grounds are beautiful with gardens and shrines (if you have any bit of a
spiritual side of yourself, you'll appreciate it most), waterfront walking paths and lots of places to play, relax and even meditate. A saltwater pool is
on site for swimming and continental breakfast is included in the rates. You can also choose to eat from hot buffets for a small donation of $3 for breakfast.
There are a number of choices for rooms in different buildings and there are even a few choices for larger parties and families. You can walk into Kennebunkport
easily or go to the beach with complimentary beach parking passes. For $89 to $175 per night during the summer, you really can't beat it if your expectations are
in line with what the Franciscan Guest House offers. As far as Kennebunk Maine hotels go, it is a good choice for the budget minded.
Kennebunk Maine Bed and Breakfast Inns
The Bufflehead Cove Inn at 18 Bufflehead Cove Lane is an exquisite bed and breakfast in Kennebunk Maine that offers tranquility,
relaxation and a good serving of romance. Located on the Kennebunk River and minutes from downtown Kennebunkport, you'll want for nothing during your
stay at this wonderful Maine inn.
The property is secluded but not remote and is adorned with beautiful flowers and gardens. Breakfast is a gourmet treat, especially when served on the
huge porch that overlooks the river. The gracious hosts pay attention to every detail and you'll wish you never had to leave. The tastefully decorated
rooms run from $165 to $320 per night in the summer and they also have a wonderful private cottage for around $400 per night. Take advantage of their
add-ons (chocolate covered strawberries, long stem roses...) for an extra romantic stay.
On par with the Bufflehead Cove Inn is the English Meadows Inn Bed and Breakfast located at 141 Port Road. This 1860 Victorian/Greek Revival
house is picture perfect and oh so comfortable and relaxing. Hosts Eric and Liz pay attention to the smallest of details to make your stay one that
you'll never forget. Plush bath robes, fine bedding, afternoon tea and incredible gourmet breakfasts are all part of what makes this inn extraordinary.
With about a 10 minute walk into town, the inn is in a wonderful location that is also very convenient to the beach. Rooms here run from $179 to $389
during the high season. You'll want to return again and again after your first stay at the English Meadows Inn Bed and Breakfast.
There are two other bed and breakfast inns in Kennebunk that are wonderful and more moderately priced - the Hounds Tooth Inn and the
Elizabeth Rose House. The latter is a bit cheaper at $125-$140 per night with a very good continental breakfast, but if you're traveling with
your dog, definitely check in at the Hounds Tooth Inn ($165-$195/night - each dog is $15 extra). Not only will you love your stay here, your dog will too!
These are the top Kennebunk Maine hotels and bed and breakfast inns. If you don't find what you're looking for here, definitely check out Kennebunkport
hotels, Kennebunkport bed and breakfasts or even venture into other surrounding towns like Wells Beach, Ogunquit or
York Beach Maine. Any of these vacation towns in Maine make for a wonderful base to
explore the Southern Maine coast and greater Portland area.
