It is set amidst towering pines and landscaped gardens a short stroll from wonderful shops, restaurants and attractions on Dock Square. The house has been lovingly restored with modern amenities while maintaining many of the original colonial features and charm. As this beautiful property heads into its fourth decade as a bed and breakfast, innkeepers Eileen & Carl provide a strong focus on every detail to ensure you enjoy your Kennebunkport experience to the fullest.

Whether it’s sitting in front of the fire with a cup of hot chocolate or spending a lazy afternoon on the porch rocking chairs enjoying the sunset over the golf course, this inn is perfect for all seasons. An acre of well-planted gardens, with several sitting areas, offer peace and solitude from the hustle and bustle of this busy holiday B & B destination.
