My husband and I spent an overnight at the Nonantum, along with two other couples. We had a great corner room with beautiful views. Since we had made the reservations many months ago, I had forgotten that breakfast was included the next morning. What a treat! The buffet choices were excellent; we were all delighted with our stay at the...

Our room was lovely and comfortable; the staff, including those delightful gals who cleaned and straightened after us each day, was always eager to help in any way they could. And the breakfasts! In all my travels, I've never been offered such a delicious and sumptuous breakfast included in the surprisingly reasonable room rate! I've now stayed at the Nonantum...

Well that is quite a claim to fame - "The Most Guest Friendly Inn I Know"! Thank you!

My wife and I ave been travelling to Kennebunkport for more than 45 years so we were very familiar with the area and the reputations of the various properties offering overnight accommodations.

Because it was off-season, we didn't get to sample many of the things this place has to offer. Despite that we had a great time. The rooms, which are are extremely comfortable with adequate seating inside and out (deck), also provide beautiful water views. The folks who work there are well-trained and gracious right down to the room maids. And...
