My wife and I stayed at Fontenay Terrace for our 4th Anniversary, and really enjoyed it. The room was clean, and the location is great. Easy walking distance to Kennebunkport shops and restaurants, and an especially easy walk to the beach and St. Ann's Church. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great stay in Maine!

Looking to return. We stayed at The Fontenay to attend a family wedding. The weather wasn't the greatest by the Fontenay was clean, pleasant, quaint and fairly priced. Close enough to walk everywhere.

We loved the Fontenay, and wished we had more time to stay and enjoy it. We were only in Kennebunkport for one night. We stayed in Room 2, and it was a clean, spacious room. As I said, we were unable to take advantage of all it had to offer simply because we were there for such a short time.

We were looking for a quiet, relaxing weekend in Maine. The room was a good size, very clean, and had everything we needed! The price was fantastic for a room so close to the ocean! The beach within walking distance is disappointing. It's small and rocky. Dock Square was an easy walk down a beautiful street, but it is about... More

My husband and I stayed in Rm 8 (the end Unit) in early May, and found it to be quite comfortable, and convenient to everything we wanted to do. Even though Spring was a little late this year, the landscaping and early flowers were lovely. Lots of charming places outside to sit and enjoy the birds, the view of the... More

The owners are friendly and very helpful, my wife needed new heels on her boots and Paula took them in the morning and returned them that evening repaired, brilliant! The rooms are very clean and tidy with fridge, microwave, coffee maker and tv. It's a pleasant stroll to Dock Square. President Bush's summer home in just up the road. Very... More

We have stayed at the Fontenay during previous visits to Kennebunkport. This time we returned with 6 friends and we booked 4 of the 8 rooms for one night. The Fontenay does not change -- and that is a good thing. Clean, comfortable, quiet and a real value given other lodging options thereabouts. Plus it is very close to one... More

My husband and I have long wanted to kayak at Kennebunkport and the weather and waves co-operated recently, allowing us to have a wonderful paddle on the river and for a little way along the coast.
