This is long overdue but we had the most amazing stay at the Edgewater Inn this past May. Before we even arrived, Caroline went out of her way to make our stay one that we will never forget. She upgraded our room because the inn wasn't fully booked and she knew we were bringing our large dog and would appreciate...

As repeat customers, we love the new Edgewater Inn. The Inn has a warm and inviting set up with beautiful clean and crisp rooms. The decorative touches are lovely. The brunch is amazing and the staff at breakfast was very polite and attentive. We come up twice a year (summer and winter Prelude weekend) and both visits are always enjoyable....

My family of 5 stayed here for a night whilst visiting kennebunkport earlier this week. The owners have done a lovely job of decorating the place. We all loved the art work on display throughout and would have happily taken some back to the UK with us but unfortunately most were too large for check-in luggage! A nice touch, supporting...

This Inn is in a great location, with a fantastic brunch and very well appointed rooms. The owner and family were very good to us, as this was our first trip with both an infant and dog. The room was very clean with nice finishes in the bathrooms. The breakfast/brunch is truly exceptional. Great selection and fantastic execution. Worth noting,...

The room was very comfortable. It was a little dark. And I would like a little table in the bathroom for my things. But I would definitely stay there again. The decor was up to date and very tasteful. The restaurant was incredible. The food was excellent.

Our room was small, and its location and the wooden floors throughout (our part of) the hotel meant that we were wakened early each morning by people (staff?) opening doors, dragging things around etc. Breakfast choice was broad, eclectic and enticing - and beautifully cooked and presented. However, two of the vaunted "3 courses" - some millimetre-thick slivers of chilled...

The breakfast at the Edgewater Inn is absolutely amazing. Not sure how the cook pulls it off with many deluxe, delicious breakfasts from which to choose. We stayed in the inn's outbuilding which is comfortable, cute and clean.

My wife and I were looking for a quaint and peaceful inn to spend our one night in Kennebunkport. The Edgewater Inn delivered on all of our expectations... and that was before breakfast. The breakfast included in our package was spectacular! We drank fresh juices and french-press coffee while considering the many interesting options on the breakfast menu. After selecting...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Edgewater Inn, formerly known as The Green Heron Inn one of Kennebunkport's historic Inns, is located on Ocean Avenue, in one of the town's most charming neighborhoods. It sits adjacent to an estuarine cove, near the mouth of the Kennebunk river and just around the bend from President George Bush's vacation home on Walkers Point. Overnight stays include a 3-course breakfast, prepared by Chef Jason Grant in the "on the edge" restaurant from eight to noon.The Inn was built in the early 1900's as a boarding house that provided shelter and breakfast for weary travelers. Twelve guest rooms including a cove side cottage, thirty-two seat restaurant. Its location, which combines the beautiful surrounding of the Kennebunk River and the convenience of its proximity to all major Kennebunkport attractions, contributed to its popularity from its early days. That tradition continues today. While relaxation at The Edgewater Inn is an art in itself, activities abound in the surrounding area. Guests enjoy rejuvenating walks along the rocky shore, enjoy the sun on the sandy beach, explore the numerous galleries and shops in Dock Square, watch the wildlife and the birds as they gather near the water next to the inn, or spend a sunny day on one of the nearby golf courses. ... more   less
