Like Going Home

5 on July 26, 2014

My husband and I have been spending my birthday in July at the Harbor Inn for the past 6+ years. Every year, it feels like coming back home when we walk in the doors. Kathy is an absolutely wonderful and gracious host and whips up some mighty delicious breakfasts. Our favorite room (#3) as well as all the other rooms in the Inn are beautifully decorated with many of Kathy's handmade items. Harbor Inn is within walking distance to the beach and the center of town. Do yourself a favor, spend your next vacation in Kennebunkport at the Harbor Inn ... you will truly enjoy the experience and will, like us, return year after year! Linda and John

We Love the Harbor Inn!

My husband and I just stayed at the Harbor Inn this past weekend, and we loved it! Compared to other local B&Bs, the price was fabulous! Kathy, the owner, is a lovely woman, and very helpful if you're looking for tips from a local. The Inn is over 100 years old, and very obviously lovingly kept in order. You're within walking distance of almost everything Kennebunkport has to offer. Kathy and her staff have thought of everything, and provided it. We highly recommend a stay at the Harbor Inn.

Great Time!

We stayed in the Pineapple Room of the Harbor Inn during October '09 and by far the best B&B we've been to! Kathy is a wonderful innkeeper, cook, and guide. The rooms are lovley, full of character and charm. All within a nice walk to downtown Kennebunkport. We will be visiting again!! ~ John & Emily

A perfect stay

Our stay at the Harbor Inn was wonderful. Our hostess, Kathy, was warm & welcoming and gave us wonderful tips about where to dine and visit. The few couples within had never been to ME and they loved it, too.
