The Maine Stay Inn exceeded our expectations. The cottage was clean and wonderful.Their location is quiet but a short walk to Dock Square. I would definitely recommend the Maine Stay Inn.

One of the Best Breakfasts I Have Eaten!

5 on August 19, 2015

We were greeted by Judi who made us a dinner reservation right away. We went to Bandaloop which she recommended and it was delicious! Our cottage was very tidy and they had a nice plate of cheese and grapes for us. The breakfast the next morning was out of this world. A baked egg dish with spinach, homemade bread and homemade sweet potato hash. Everything is homemade there. The place is immaculate. They told us what beach to go to and gave us towels, too! We will be back.

Kennebuckport - an Awesome B&B

4.0 on August 18, 2015

The Maine Stay was a wonderful inn near the center of Kennebunkport. Our first floor room had a separate entrance from the outside and a large deck with chairs, table and umbrella. Judi and her staff provided everything we needed and great suggestions on dining.

Loved it!

We adore the Maine Stay. We stayed their during our wedding weekend a few weeks ago and it was the best wedding planning choice we could have made. Johanna, Judi and Walter are the sweetest people and they will make sure your stay is comfortable, memorable, and delicious, with lots of special touches. The cottage was spotless, beautifully decorated, and attention to detail is always paid (rubber ducky in the bathtub, anyone?). The grounds are immaculate and the brightly colored Adirondack chairs (some child sized!) really complete the view from your cottage. Breakfast (delivery included if desired) will totally blow your mind, with savory and sweet choices daily. Don't miss out on a truly Maine experience.

Honeymoon at the Mainstay Inne

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon at the Mainstay Inn and we had an wonderful experience. The staff is incredibly welcoming, helpful, and friendly. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. We look forward to staying at the Mainstay Inn again.

Peaceful and relaxing!

The Inn is conveniently located...within walking distance to Dock Square. Nice walk along tree-lined streets, manicured lawns, and gorgeous homes. The staff are very accommodating and friendly...trying to meet your every need. The room was tastefully decorated, and equipped with everything needed. The units were very sound proof as well; even with the windows opened! The grounds are lovely, and breakfast was great. Loved the option of eating in the main home, or having it delivered to our room. Nice touch!
