Lovely Inn & Innkeeper

5 on September 16, 2014

Lovely location, Innkeeper very helpful and knowledgeable about area, friendly, made guests feel right at home.

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!

This was our first vacation in a B&B. Its was so nice to stay in an old house with history. The Pineapple room was a real treat. The pancake Kathy made in the morning were wonderful. Hope to stay with kathy again....Salina&Bruce

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

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.

Victorian Inn

This trip was planned as a weekend get-away for friends who don't always have the quality time to spend together. The Inn provided the atmosphere, comfort and privacy to enjoy each other's company.

Stumbled across a real gem

4.8 on August 17, 2008

We stumbled across this place as we drove into Kennebunkport and decided to wing it to find a place to stay. The host was very friendly with a great sense of humour, and was very helpful with the accommodations as my sister and I were traveling together and weren't looking for the most romantic of rooms. The rooms were very comfortable, and we slept quite well. Bedding and pillows were nice and appropriate for the weather, and the location of the B&B is optimal (short walk from downtown, very near the beaches, etc). Breakfasts were tasty and involved lots of home cooked treats and cakes. All in all, given the prices of things in that area, we were quite pleased with the value we got for the stay, and would gladly go back.

Harbor Inn

"My haven by the Sea" The Harbor Inn offers the traveler a charming Victorian Inn. The innkeeper is extremely knowledgeable about the area. She is very accommodating and maintains the Inn. The beautiful front pouch is a great place for conversation and relaxation.

The only downside was a shower curtain that too high and the bath flooded when showering.

Katy was an exceptional host and knew all the best spots at the right price! If you really want the inside scoop on where to go and what to do - Kathy at the Harbor Inn is for you!

Harbor Inn's Unforgettable Assets

4.0 on June 03, 2008

What I enjoy particularly are the personal touches that make us feel at home, as well as the tranquil atmosphere and easy accessability (walking distance) to defferent place we enjoy visiting throughout the day. That's why we keep coming back each year.

An excellent choice

The room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was well-outfitted, the location was quiet and peaceful. Exactly what I was looking for. The Harbor Inn was a nice walk from the center of Kennebunkport. And most importantly, Kathy's breakfasts were amazing.
