Very enjoyable weekend!

4.2 on August 25, 2013

We really enjoyed our stay. The inn was quiet, the food was excellent, and the staff was pleasant/low-key. We will be back!

A great place to stay

4.0 on December 11, 2012

This Inn is a delight to stay in. The rooms are beautiful. The food is great and the staff and owners are delightful and eager to please. I would highly recommend staying here. We stayed in the Luxury Suite. It was spacious, pretty and very comfortable. There are a few things that would have made the Suite and bit more comfortable. I found there was a lack of lamps in the room. There could have been two more in the living room and easily another two in the master suite. There also was only one bedside table in the master suite and no light for reading on that side of the bed. Two bedside tables with a lamp on each side would have been preferable. Some bedside clocks in each of the bedrooms would have been good too. Finally, I think the space used for a kitchenette would have been better devoted to a bigger bathroom space. A big tub and an extra powder room would be a huge asset to this room. All in all a great stay. I wish the Inn much success.

Keenly Kennebunkport! Magnificent Mainr!

The stay was wonderful. I have already recommended Edgewater Inn to my friends.

Edgewater (Green Heron) in September

4.0 on October 14, 2012

We had a wonderful stay at the Edgewater after Labor Day. They were trying to complete their renovation and what they have done is spectacular and did not inconvenience us in anyway. We had a little problem in the cottage and they moved us to a beautiful suite. Personnel here was very accomodating, kind and professional. The staff really made our stay great. We hope to go back again, we would definitely stay again and recommend it to friends. It's also in a great location, easy walking to the beach and to the little town.

Great place to stay!

Cozy close to a small down town

This was freshly remodeled inside and is quite cute and cozy feeling, very clean too. Very nice people who run it.

Beautiful spot and very friendly helpful hosts

4.2 on September 10, 2012

We got lucky finding this delightful B&B. It has recently changed hands, and although I hadn't stayed here before the freshly decorated rooms were lovely. Patrick and his family couldn't have been more friendly and the whole combination of elements led to a very happy couple of days.

Quiet clean and a great staff

Staff were super friendly. Rooms and location were just okay. For the price we paid, I was just expecting a bit more.

3.2 on July 05, 2012

It's hard to elaborate on the review b/c the inn had just changed hands and the new owners were in the midst of getting it set up and having renovations done. We were the only guests the night of our stay. with that said, it was a pleasant stay and I would recommend it. Staff was friendly, courteous and very helpful. Inn is nicely located and in it's current state it was still quite clean and well appointed. Breakfast was also terrific.
