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 or dine in our main dining room. 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.

Terrific

Everything was great in spite of a power outage. Great hosts.


Cozy Kennebunkport Stay

4.8 on January 02, 2017

This was a wonderful little gem of a B&B to stay at during Christmas Prelude. Judi and Walter were wonderful hosts and very friendly! The only problem I had was the bathroom was quite small in the room I was in. I would definitely book with Maine Stay Inn again!

Innkeeper Response
Next time you decide to stay with us...call and we can help you select a room with a larger bath. We have many different sizes and styles on our property.

Wonderful Inn!

4.4 on December 19, 2016

This is the second year we have stayed at the Inn. Judi & Walter are fantastic and go out of their way to accommodate you by making you reservations for brunch or dinner, or bring you breakfast to your cottage if you are not staying in the house. Whatever you need, just ask! The rooms (and cottages) are very clean and cozy. We would definitely recommend the Maine Stay Inn & Cottages.


Excellent place to stay!!

Charming B&B

Lovely place, filled with history and lots of charm! The rooms were very spacious and had all of the amenities you would need. Breakfast was wonderful. Knowing we had to leave early, they accommodated us without a problem. Would highly recommend.

Best place to stay in Kennebunkport

4.8 on August 17, 2016

This is by far the best place to stay in Kennebunkport. We stayed in cottage #5. It looked just like the picture and very clean. Breakfast was fabulous. This was our second time there and we will be back again.


Warm hospitality / Teutonic attention to detail

5 on August 09, 2016

Just about the perfect B&B experience. The grounds and rooms are impeccably maintained with numerous "extras" throughout. The innkeepers and staff all exude genuine, warm hospitality. Maine Stay has my highest possible recommendation.


Superb B&B

5 on July 29, 2016

Teutonic attention to detail with warm personal hospitality from the innkeepers and staff make Maine Stay the inn of choice in all of New England. Could not be recommended more highly.

Innkeeper Response
So glad this guest noticed our attention to detail and our warm hospitality. We strive had to provide the warm atmosphere and we take pride in the little details. Hope to see you again. Judi

Most comfortable bed ever!

4.0 on June 19, 2016

Innkeepers were kind, although the gentleman was a bit overly quirky. Nonetheless, we found our stay in one of the guest cottages incredibly comfortable. There was ample space, soft towels, and the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in! The inn is located within walking distance to the quaint downtown, and lovely river area, including loads of restaurants and shops. The only real down-side was the underwhelming food - the parmesan-crusted "savory French toast" with asparagus and hollandaise was lacking in flavor and texture, and the afternoon cookies were overcooked and reminiscent of something store-bought.
