Comfortable and casual. The beach across the street is outstanding. My Wife and I particularly enjoyed the front porch across from the beach. In the early afternoon with refreshments overlooking the ocean, and the next morning with great discussions with a group from South Carolina and Clemson. It is a warm and friendly place. Enjoyed the bicycles, and the nature...

Dear Karl S I am thrilled to read your review and learn about the specifics that made your stay with us, here at the Tides Beach Club, memorable. We are very lucky to be able to offer our guests beach front access, just steps off of our front lawn area. This allows us to appreciate incredible views from our porch...

We stayed in the Tides Beach Club for a few days at the end of a road trip around main and it was a marvellously relaxing end to our holiday. The hotel is very comfortable and just across the road from the beach at Goose Rocks which is a short drive from the much busier Kennebunkport. The staff are very...

We loved our fall weekend at the Tides Beach Club, despite some rain. The property is quintessentially new-england, decor is rustic chic. Right across from a wide, beautiful beach. Our room was facing the ocean - fantastic view - felt like we were staying at the home of a wealthy friend! They've thought of so many special details, was easy...

The Tides Beach Club was just what we were looking for . It's a quaint Inn on the beach just a few minutes from Kennebunk Maine. Far enough away from town to really be relaxing, but close enough to go shopping or sailing whenever you want . It's an updated, clean, 25 room Inn that is across the street from...

This past weekend was my second stay at TBC and it was truly a pleasure. The decor, the staff, the amenities (this resort is paired with Hidden Pond), the food/drinks and the location are all PERFECT. Staying here was truly a perfect weekend getaway.

While the rooms are small, this place is a first class experience in terms of service, the restaurant, the beach access and location. The house is so nice that it expands your living space. We absolutely plan on coming back and i recommend the lobster raviolo and the swordfish wrap.
