We stayed at the Edgewater Inn for 5 nights leading up to the 4th of July, and picked it because of it's great location and because it is dog friendly. We were a quick walk to two small private beaches right off Ocean road. which is great for walks along the sea wall with beautiful views. We walked an easy... More

I highly recommend this great bed & breakfast. I was driving along the coast as few days ago, getting very tired, seeking a place for the night, and saw the vacancy sign. Peter and Caroline are incredibly nice and hospitable, the public rooms and my private room spotless and very comfortable, and as already mentioned I had an incredibly delicious... More

Very helpful staff, nicely appointed rooms, and generous breakfast. The location is not very central in town, but very much walking distance -- and it's nice to be away from the crowds and... More

Boutique accommodations with a warmth of service rarely found... add to this an amazing gourmet complimentary breakfast and you have the five star Edgewater Inn. I truly didn't want to leave and definitely will book again!

Stayed here for a couple of nights while touring New England. Caroline the owner made us very welcome and was very helpful in recommending places to eat etc. We were allocated a lovely room, very clean and well maintained. The 3 course breakfasts were fantastic, didn't need to eat again until dinner!

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
