Autumn at the Kendall Tavern Inn

3.6 on November 29, 2015

This is the first time we've stayed at the Kendall Tavern in colder weather. While our room was warm (individual heat controls), the Inn overall was chilly. It did make the beautiful throws in the living room cozy! Breakfast, although delicious, is a bit heavy on the carbs and light on protein. Breads with French Toast is a little too much bread for me. Overall the Inn is lovely and very comfortable.

Wonderful stay at a wonderful inn!

We felt comfortable the minute we walked in. The inn is both cozy and beautiful and the innkeepers are wonderful. The inn location is perfect - just outside the busy town center and a nice walk to all the good stuff. The three course breakfast was amazing - both beautiful to look at and a treat for the taste buds! And, we can't forget to mention Mark's entertaining banter. We highly recommend this inn to all traveling to the Freeport area.

A great place to stay

We stayed with Mark and Nancy for 2 nights while on a getaway weekend in Portland and Freeport Maine. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Not only were Mark and Nancy welcoming and kind, but they were also great hosts and seemed to really care about us and the quality of our stay. We would absolutely visit the Kendall Tavern Inn again the next time we are in town!

One of Freeports Best

Mark and Nancy do a terrific job of making you welcome and comfortable. Mark provides all the advice and Nancy does the cooking which is really great. The house is old and charming and nicely located about a half mile from the shopping center. Strongly recommend a stay there - you won't be disappointed.

Historic Inn a great value in Freeport

4.0 on September 26, 2015

Jean and I greatly enjoyed our stay at Kendall Tavern Inn - from our greeting by Mark when we checked in to Linda's delicious departure-morning breakfast the next day. This is a very comfortable historic property that has been sensitively restored retaining historic beauty but with appreciated modern conveniences. Just a few blocks from the shopping center of Freeport, the inn is quiet and conveniently located.

Great Stay!
