soooo nice :)

4.0 on April 09, 2014

We only stayed one night, but thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! The owner, Walt, checked us in and showed us to our cottage, which couldn't have been cuter, and showed us where everything was. He was very sweet and genuinely wanted to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The bed was super comfy, the fireplace was lovely, the mini kitchen was convenient, we had a little trouble trying to figure out how to turn the heating unit down but that was most likely due to our own lack of paying attention when Walt explained it to us when we got there! I'd wholeheartedly recommend this place for a romantic getaway and would absolutely return. If I had to pick something to complain about, and it'd be nitpicking because this place was just so nice, the complimentary soaps and shampoos in the bathroom weren't the best...but obviously, like I said, that's definitely nitpicking!! We loved our room, had a wonderful experience and would love to visit again.


We can't wait to go back!

Our stay at the Maine Stay Inn was amazing! We were looking for a luxurious yet quiet weekend away, and we got exactly what we wanted. Judi and Walter were so sweet, along with everyone else on the staff. We stayed in one of the cottages in the back and it was more than we could have even hoped for. It was so spacious and clean, and they really do think of everything you could possibly need. Not just the jacuzzi tub and the fireplace, but wine glasses and a coffee maker! They gave us dining recommendations and cookies when we checked in, and brought delicious breakfast right to our room in the morning. Everything about our stay was amazing and we will definitely be back!


The Perfect Weekend

It was our first time in a Bed and Breakfast. We were comfortable, welcomed and were really impressed with this beautiful home. The breakfast was delicious and just what we needed to get back on the road to Connecticut.


Wonderful Stay at the Maine Stay, Kennebunkport

4.8 on January 20, 2014

This was our first stay at the Maine Stay Inn, Kennebunkport. The inn, which is a quintessential large New England seaport house, has a casual, neat and relaxed atmosphere. Walter, one of the owners, was particularly friendly and always ready for conversation. Location is perfect for visitors – just a short walk to the “downtown” shopping area of town. For those who haven’t been to Kennebunkport, most of the local things to do - shopping, beach, ocean side sitting areas and restaurants are all compacted in a small area such that it is just a few minutes drive between all. Our upstairs room in main house was very nicely decorated, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast quality and service were excellent and relaxed, with two seatings. The expansive front porch looked inviting, though it was a bit chilly while we were there in November to enjoy it. The common room in the entrance areas was neat and comfortable, and can accommodate around five people seated. The dining area has two large tables that were available for informal gathering and conversation. Overall, an enjoyable stay. Trade the large hotels for a friendly, comfortable “home away from home” and Stay at the Maine Stay Inn.


Keurig & Comfort!

4.8 on May 31, 2013

The breakfast was the best I've had in a while - started my day right! I stayed in the Abbie’s Retreat Room with a king bed. It was comforting after a long trip. The bed was very cozy with many pillows and great for my height – 6’2. The room was pleasant with the nice added benefits of my own personal Keurig machine, which came in handy after watching NBA playoffs on the flatscreen the night before. The bathroom was also equipped with a nice size jetted Jacuzzi tub that I didn’t get the chance to try, but will the next time.
