Come to Bufflehead Cove for peace and pampering in a very private setting right on the water. Famous Kennebunkport village is just around the bend of the river. Bring your kayak or bike and explore, or just sit on our front porch and read a good book.

My wife and I have been coming to Bufflehead Cove Inn for well over ten years, typically 2-3 times a season. We have loved every minute of our time there even in times of foul weather. The rooms are all unique and very personal. Wonderful beds with terrific linens. With the sole exception of the Garden Room, all the rooms view the Kennebunk River. The Garden Room, even without the river view, has its own charm and is delightful. Breakfast on the wide covered porch overlooking the ever changing river is a wonderful way to begin the day. Harriet is an excellent hostess and she has passed on her knowledge and charm to her son Erin. Our only complaint is that the inn has become too popular and it is difficult to book a room.

This was the latest of many stays at Bufflehead Cove. It is simply wonderful. The rooms could not be any nicer and the breakfast is excellent. We have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts, and this is our very favorite. I do not have one criticism. Everything is top of the line. Mary Lou Joseph

When we first visited Bufflehead Cove Inn in June 2012, we knew we had discovered an extraordinary retreat.We have just returned from our second visit and fallen even more deeply in love with this very special inn. Bufflehead Cove Inn is so peaceful, private and restorative, tension just slips away, replaced by an incredible sense of joy and gratitude that such a beautiful oasis exists. Prepare to be spoiled by delicious, bountiful breakfasts,( included with your room rate ) served on the spacious front porch overlooking the gorgeous Kennebunk River, where birds sing happily and sailboats bob on the sun dappled water. If rain dares to intrude, you will dine in the charming dining room, amongst vases filled with fabulous fresh flowers from the garden. Freshly made smoothies served in champagne flutes, scrumptious apple coffeecake and luscious asparagus strata are just a few of the morning menu items. "The Hideaway" is our favorite room. There is a charming little deck with a bistro table set for two. Each morning pre-breakfast coffee is silently set on that table, which is quite a magical gesture. The Hideaway has a spacious sitting room, a very pretty two sided fireplace, massive jacuzzi tub, an immensely comfortable bed with plenty of plump pillows and more darling bouquets of flowers! There is even a mini fridge tucked inside the closet for stashing champagne and snacks for an intimate picnic. The staff ensures that your room is in pristine condition each day when you return from exploring the area, and nightly turn down is accompanied by very tasty little chocolates. The innkeepers are so gracious, welcoming, hospitable and helpful, but never intrusive. With their impeccable sense of style, attention to detail and generous concern for your well being, they are the quintessential hosts. If you are lucky enough to stay at the Bufflehead Cove inn, you too will have discovered the perfect "Hideaway".

What a wonderful place to stay. The hosts are so gracious and helpful. We loved the wine and cheese on the afternoon after a day of touring. Our hosts could help with things to do and places to dine. We also enjoyed just sitting on the wonderful porch after a busy day to watch the ducks swim by on the river. We have already booked for return visit.
