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 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.

Best place to stay in Kennebunkport

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

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.


Cozy and Comfortable

4.8 on June 06, 2016

We had a great weekend at Maine Stay, the grounds were beautiful and the Inn was really nice, and our hosts were very welcoming. Our bathroom was small, but everything else exceeded our expectations. Kennebunkport is a great place to visit!

Innkeeper Response
I wish I knew what room this guest stayed in, as we have some rooms with smallish bathrooms, one is even almost minute, but others are palatial. Hopefully, this guest will return and will call for guidance on bathroom sizes. Thanks for your kind review.


Outstanding!

4.8 on May 28, 2016

This is a wonderful place! The cabins are very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are fabulous. The location is just a few blocks from shops and restaurants.

Innkeeper Response
So glad you were comfortable and happy as we work hard to make things good for everyone. Judi


Great property, great people, great time!!!!
