Located on a cove in a salty river, this swank little spot was a nice place for us to rest our heads at the end of a busy day of sightseeing. Though the rooms were a bit small, they were clean and well appointed. The hightlight of our stay was the impressive and absolutely spectacular three course breakfast we enjoyed... More

My wife and I were in town for a friends wedding and our anniversary. The property is gorgeous, well maintained, clean, and right right on the marsh inlet. The property manager and staff were more than accommodating, and the food was out of this world. Although it is a short walk to the main part of town, being a little... More

We have so enjoyed staying at the Edgewater Inn. We visit in the summer and during the winter holiday season and this is our family spot to stay. The location is lovely, the Inn is meticulous, the food over-the-top delicious, and the owners very friendly. A wonderful place to stay. We always look forward to our visits.

The Edgewater serves breakfast in a water side dining room. The chef has so many great offerings on the menu. So hard to choose! Ample quantities, many great mini bites before the main course arrives. We left with our taste buds tingling and left overs to boot! The service staff was outstanding. Breakfast is a prix fixe menu, it seems... More

A very pretty hotel in a gorgeous resort town of Kennebunkport. The owner made very special arrangements for us for dinner and drinks at the BEST spots. The hotel is beautiful. I have never felt to welcome or at home. The brunch was delicious. THANK YOU !!

Just enjoyed a great weekend at the Edgewater Inn. Caroline and her staff are so accommodating and friendly. The inn is immaculate inside and out and they think of everything.

Very nice place, the staff were super-friendly and very accomodating. The room was quite small, but it has the huge plus that all the windows opened - one doesn't always have this, and it was great to have some fresh air. The room was super, super clean. The breakfast (more like a lunch) was awesome! If you are not into... More

Caroline and her entire Edgewater Inn team was phenomenal, they are all so accommodating and make you feel at home. This was our second time visiting and will be going back every year. The breakfast is also the best breakfast I ever had, it was as good as the first year we went. Thank you to Chef Jason.

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
