We love returning to the Nonantum Resort year after year. Our room was delightful and had a beautiful view of the water. The bed was comfy and everything was very clean. The breakfast buffet was delicious and had a great selection. The staff was very helpful and friendly and in particular Michael L. at the front desk was extremely welcoming...

Last minute two day get away. Could not have picked a better spot. Great location, right on the water in a charming Maine Coastal Village. Everyone we encountered from booking our stay, to check in, housekeeper who tended to our room and the bartenders in the pub were amazingly friendly. Food was excellent both in the bar at night as...

Hi Megan: What a fantastic review! Thank you so very much! As you are not too far away maybe you should plan another trip? September brings wonderful weather, smaller crowds and lots of great deals!

We booked through Hotels.com, so when our room didn't look great (view of a roof and right by ice machine), I didn't know if the front desk would accommodate us, but they did so without hesitation. Our new room had a gorgeous view of grounds and waterways! Very cute room with some charming aspects. A/C in room, small (and noisy)...

Hello Day Tripper: It is lovely you had such a nice visit with us! You bring up an interesting point: When you book your room through a third party an independent hotel (like the Nonantum) has to pay a large commission. As a result, you are highly unlikely to get assigned one of the best rooms! In our case, you...

Hi Cono: Every two years? I think you better make a trip to The Nonantum an annual event, like so many of our guests! :-) That new chicken dish is fantastic.

Very nice! Room was clean & comfortable. We frequently sat out on the balcony of our room and enjoyed the river and ocean views. Bathroom was quite small but the room was spacious. The free breakfast buffet was outstanding. We ate at many restaurants during our four night stay in Kennenbunkport but the Nonantum had the best seafood chowder. Excellent...

We only stayed one night as our first stop-off out of Boston on our New England Road Trip. We stayed in the old part of the resort and our (3) rooms were clean and full of character. Facilities in the rooms were excellent, but still had that ‘old world’ charm. We did not use the Restaurant, but the Bar was...

Hello English Visitor: We wish you could have stayed longer too! One day is no where near enough time to experience all that Kennebunkport and The Nonantum Resort have to offer! In addition to our breathtaking beaches we also have super fun out door activities (hiking, biking, paddle boarding or kayaking anyone?) Please come back when you can stay longer!...

Overall hotel was excellent. I stayed at the Nonantum Tuesday through Friday. Would recommend mid-week because resort and downtown clearly got a lot busier once Friday hit. Brought my parents, wife and kids (5 &3). Everyone had an excellent time. Pros: *Pool and pool restaurant area. *Complimentary shuttle service anywhere. *Short walk to downtown. *Hotel rooms were nice and clean....

Hi Michael! Thanks for your very complete list of ideas. You make many good suggestions! I have shared your thoughts with our shuttle drivers as well as the pool bar folks.

The old building brings atmosphere. So who cares about an old elevator (better take the stairs)? Very friendly and easygoing staff, rooms are not too big but are newly decorated in seaside pastel colours. The older wooden furniture and old fashioned beds are great. Just loved our stay. Nice pub, small pool, great fireplace outside for marshmellow fans.
