Situated near the beach, the inn is an old property. Our room was lovely with everything we needed. There are thoughtful extras like afternoon tea, cheese, biscuits and port. Plenty of places to sit and chat with other guests, both inside and outdoors. An extensive continental buffet breakfast was offered. We ate at the sister property's restaurant and had a...

We stayed here on Saturday night 10/10. We were happy to arrive to a clean room and found the Beach House to be pleasantly quiet after we did a long charity bike ride. This was great as we were very tired and were hopeful to head to bead early. The room was average size and fairly well appointed. The light...

We had visited The Sundial Inn (now The Beach House) 26 years ago. Upon our return we found Kennebunk unchanged and still extremely charming. Staying at The Beach house was a wonderful experience. Rooms were nice and comfortable, the Staff were very helpful and pleasant and the location was very peaceful. The continental breakfast was great everyday while the evening...

This was our first time to Kennebunk so of course wanted to get the authentic feel of the place. We stayed only two nights but wish we could have stayed more. The property is just across the street from the beach. You can see the water as soon as you walk out the front door. Our room was on level...

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Beach House on two occasions. Both times we had a very comfortable room on an upper floor with an ocean view. Breakfast was very good, and we enjoyed socializing on the front porch and lawn area with friends.
