Kennebunkports first Bed and Breakfast!

5 on July 23, 2012

Bob was an amazing inn keeper and very personable and approchable. Being the originial bed and breakfast in Kennebunkport made it that much more enjoyable. I would and will stay there again. Everything was walking distance, so we parked our car and enjoyed the great places to eat and drink without having to drive. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Great value. Not to mention this was the first time I ever stayed at a Bed and Breakfast. So, needless to say was a great first impression for all Bed and Breakfast


Wonderful

Location, location, location !!!Had a wonderful stay. Bob was very accomodating and so helpful with dining ideas. Breakfast was great, service was great and couldn't ask for more. Have stayed at many B&B's around the country, this was one of the best !


Simply wonderful

This B&B is easily one of the nicest I've stayed in, and I've certainly stayed in my share. The rooms are gorgeous, the hosts were always friendly and helpful, the location is second to none, and the breakfast is to die for! I would wholeheartedly recommend staying here.


1st New England trip

4.2 on July 19, 2007

What a great way to start my trip. Bob and Fran were so friendly and took the time to talk to me about the area and other interests. The location is amazing--off the main street so it was quiet, but basically right next to Dock Square. I walked everywhere in town and appreciated the ease of seeing things on foot when so much of what I did was drive to other places. The breakfasts were delightful, well presented and delicious. My room was large and comfortable. The only reason I marked it down was because the bathroom was small and oddly positioned. I think that it was sometimes used in combination with another room/suite so that was why it was where it was. Otherwise I would definitely recommend the Chetwynd House Inn for a lovely vacation spot!
