The rooms are quite large and very well equipped. The main lodge doubles as a breakfast room and games lounge . Bicycles are available for use of residents.Staff were really friendly and helpful. Some excellent tips for dining. It is a little way out of town, a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk, but worth it for its location.

I can't say enough about the Lodge on the Cove. I've stayed there twice now. The area is beautiful, wooded, A short walk through a really lovely neighborhood to get to the main road to downtown. Perhaps a 20 minutes walk to vibrant downtown. Rooms are very nice, clean and so comfortable. Room temperature is perfect. There is a main...

We stayed here for an extended weekend and only wish our stay was longer. It was a great location and offered so many amenities like a fire pit, your own bicycles and a white noise machine in your room. The rooms themselves are so welcoming and comfortable. I would love to travel back here for a getaway in the summer...

The Lodge on the Cove is a great little hotel in Kennebunkport. It is conveniently located to everything and an easy walk downtown or to the beach.

Never been to Kennebunkport before. Such a great place! To top it off, the Lodge was a wonderful place to stay. Great rooms and great lodge. Perfect little night by the outdoor fire.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights and they were perfect. The room was large, clean and comfortable. We used the hotel bikes to ride along the coast and if you don't mind a 1 mile easy walk you are in the heart of Kennebunkport. We would definite stay there again.
