The room looked like it was all remodeled with new everything. Very cute little kitchen and the bed was very comfortable. The jacuzzi and bathroom was all brand new and everything was kept clean. Sonja was very hospitable. It is not exactly on the beach--but it is a fun little trek to the beach. We trekked up there and flew...

Thank you so much for taking the time to enter your kind comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Your notice of our efforts is appreciated. We do not advertise that we are on the beach. And it is a beautiful 10 mins 'trek' over to it. Thank you so much, Sonja

We vacation in Maine every October to celebrate our anniversary, and were at the Shorelands last week from Wednesday to Sunday. We have a new dog with separation anxiety issues, so this year we needed to find lodging where we could have him with us. My husband found The Shorelands online, and our first stay there was perfect for our...

My husband and I came here for our fifth wedding anniversary and LOVED IT!! The service was wonderful, our cottage was the cutest :) We fell in love with it!! The bathroom was very spacious and the kitchen met all our needs. It was so quiet that we never heard much of anything from our surrounding neighbors. We loved that...

My wife and I enjoy the Kennebunk area and keep returning. Shorelands is by far the best value in the Kennebunk and Kennebunkport area. Our favorite beach is Parsons and is short walk through a horse farm. The rooms are well maintained and charming. You have full use of the bbq grills and the fire pit at night is a...

Stayed here with a party of 6 (one being an 80 lb dog) and had a wonderful time. We had a larger cottage for two families with a king bed the other with two queens. Two bathrooms which were good size too. The resort is out of Kennybunkport - i'd say couple of miles out. It's in great proximity to...

We were very disappointed with this "resort". The cabin was very small and rundown and seemed very dirty.We wanted to leave early but we couldn't get a refund unless they could re-book the room.We had to stay 3 nights in this place! The shower was so tiny and the kitchen is just a microwave and hotplate. It looks nothing like...

When i first opened the door i was already disgusted and was not worth $150 a night. Do not let the pictures fool you because the cottages are not even all white. There were 4 white ones and the rest were all dirty wood that looked moldy on the outside. The floors looked like they haven't been swept in forever...

We are truly sorry that your experience was not satisfactory. The guests stayed for 6 nights out of 7. We were NOT made aware of an A/C problem until late one everning, when no worker was on duty. We are not a large hotel with 24 hr staff. And the gentleman volunteered to take the new A/C. The floors in...

This place is for you if you like friendly, easy-going cottage vacations. It's not the Ritz and it's not an anonymous motel. It's just like staying at your friend's place by the beach. A lovely beach it is, too, and it's in a peaceful saltmarsh wildlife refuge. Chris in the office was very friendly and helpful. He recommended a great...
