About

The Maine Stay Inn offers luxurious accommodations in the historic coastal Maine community of Kennebunkport. The Main House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, provides updated styling and modern amenities in a stately Victorian home. The Cottage Suites, offering added space and privacy, range in style from updated traditional to 21st century modern, and these guests may choose to enjoy breakfast delivered to their door. All guests enjoy a multi-course gourmet breakfast daily, afternoon tea and snacks, and complimentary Wi-Fi. All accommodations have en-suite baths (some with whirlpool tubs and heated floors), flat screen TVs, and many feature gas fireplaces. The main house and five cottage-style buildings surround expansive lawns and gardens, with hammocks and Adirondack chairs for your relaxation and enjoyment. Stroll tree-lined streets to fine shops, restaurants and art galleries of Kennebunkport's Dock Square. The scenic harbor is just a block away, while you'll find sandy beaches just a mile from the inn.

Wonderful Stay

4.6 on December 14, 2014

Had a wonderful two night stay in one of the cottages, which was especially cozy with the fireplace in the room. The innkeepers went out of their way to make us feel welcome and even though we had to leave early in the mornings they still made sure we had a delicious homemade breakfast. Easy to walk to center of town.


Magnificent Maine

3.8 on December 04, 2014

Just returned from spending two nights at the Maine Stay Inn & Cottages. The Hauers are a warm, friendly, and gracious family who truly enjoy being innkeepers. Their recommendations for restaurants and things to do were perfect for a relaxing getaway. It's a lovely inn and exceptionally clean and uncluttered. The breakfasts are delicious with interesting combinations and flavors and presented like a picture in a magazine. It's a close walk to Dock Square where there are great shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend this inn to anyone. We plan on returning in the near future.


Awesome Stay

Great place to stay in Kennebunkport... Walt and his wife were great. Definitely will stay there again on my next visit out East.


Fall Weekend Getaway

5 on November 03, 2014

The Maine Stay was a great getaway retreat in Kennebunkport. Our room in the Inn was comfortable and beautifully furnished. Breakfasts were delicious and so enjoyable. The staff and owners were accommodating and very personable. The relaxed atmosphere made for a great weekend away.


outstanding and well-recommended

4.4 on October 28, 2014

We stayed for a night. A few weeks prior to arriving, we called and added a second night in the same room. When we arrived, we were greeted and shown a list of things to do in the area. They offered to carry our luggage to our room. When we got to the room, it was much better than expected! The room was clean and there was an iPhone dock playing music. They also had homemade cookies :-) the bathroom was a bit small for someone who is 6"4'. Breakfast the next morning was at a community table with the other guests. The food was simply amazing. Check-out was at 11, but since we were staying an extra night, we made our way to Portland for some sight seeing. While in Portland, they called us and asked why we had not yet checked out. We mentioned that we added a second night. They had no record of this but immediately offered to transfer us to another room and charge us the price of our original room. We ended up being upgraded to a better room. Breakfast the next morning was even better. While the error should not have happened in the first place, they went above and beyond to correct it. This place is highly recommended and we will be staying again in the future.

Great private cottage. Comfortable bed. Breakfast was delicious. Was a little more spendy then others in the area.


25th Wedding Anniversary

4.2 on October 22, 2014

Our stay was wonderful. Our cottage looked just like the website photos. Judith and Walter were extremely friendly and helpful. The home has so much charm and character. Our only complaint was the breakfast that was served. It was good, but we were hoping for something using "foods" from the New England Coast. We were hoping to enjoy hot pancakes with MAINE blueberries covered in hot MAPLE syrup from Vermont. I would recommend this property to my friends.


What an amazing place!

5 on October 16, 2014

When my wife and I arrived to this bed and breakfast we have to say the service, the breakfast and the room were all amazing! We had the best stay and even had a wonderful conversation with the 2 owners. I left my iphone charger at home and when I asked Walter he was more than happy to let me borrow his for the 2 days we were there. When we go back to Kennebunkport I am definitely staying here again. This was one of the best places I have been to and I travel quite a bit for work. Thank you!


Loved Our Stay

5 on September 29, 2014

We wanted to stay here just by the pictures alone until we met the owners Judi and Walter. They are such nice people and so accommodating. What a fabulous 3 days we spent here! The rooms are very, very nice and well appointed right down to the smallest of details (the caramels placed in your room are so good). The grounds were beautiful and well kept. The breakfast each morning was delicious and the service was spectacular. We cannot say enough about the time we spent here and we are already planning another getaway to Maine Stay Inn very soon!
