This was our first time staying here ( 2kids, 2adults, 1 infant) and we travel quite a bit, but are pretty go with the flow type of people. However, some parts of the stay left a sour taste behind.

Rooms were nice enough however walls were paper thin, you could hear everything in the next room. Each room had noise reduction and this kept us up all night when being played in the other room! Footsteps all night upstairs. We walked into town and looked at some of the other properties that I checked out like the Yachtsman and...

This place is great, especially with kids. It's West Elm meets Kennebunkport. A great renovation, so clean and comfortable and well appointed. Most importantly, they have many little touches, especially for kids, many places are missing. Nice pool and good food by the pool. Room 27 is the best.

My husband and I spent the first weekend of May here, and we just loved it. It was our first visit to the Lodge, but I hope it won't be the last.

We stayed at the Lodge on the Cove for 5 nights with our 11-month-old. We requested a room in the Juniper building, which is the furthest from the check-in/pool area, thus the quietest. It is also one story, so there was nobody staying above us. It was quiet and comfortable. We were happy to have found the Lodge on the...
