Very nice and conveniently located b&b
We wanted to stay at a b&b on the southern Maine coast. Enjoyed our stay very much. Breakfasts were delicious, hosts helpful with suggesting places to visit and the room was comfortable.

Nice breakfast
The owners of this bed and breakfast were friendly enough, and the breakfast was great. We did not spend much time in the hotel, except for sleeping and eating the breakfast. The hostess did make it a point to let us know that it does not benefit the owners when a guest makes reservations through, which made me wonder why they made the hotel available on ?? The hotel was away from the main stream of business and there were no restaurants within walking distance. We had to pay a steep parking fee when we drove downtown Kennebunkport to eat and to see the sights.

Lovely inn, great service at an affordable price.
We stayed for two nights. The room was pleasant with lots of light and lovely furnishings befitting a B&B. The hosts were very helpful in providing information and recommendations on how to maximize our time. The breakfast (included) were wonderful! The hosts provided a pleasant environment where guests could relax and get to know each other. A great time!
