Kennebunkport is a coastal town in the south of Maine. What makes Kennebunkport special? The beautiful beaches like the famous sandy Goose Rocks Beach and the Gooch’s Beach, the bright blue waters and of course, the town’s main harbor. Other than these beachy attractions, you can go shopping around Dock Square or check out the Goat Island lighthouse! Think of your vacation in Kennebunkport as a relaxing vacation for your mind, body and soul. Just imagine, a day out in the sun with the fresh ocean breeze, the salty ocean water keeping you cool and those never-ending white sand beaches for you to lounge and relax. Sounds amazing, right? Now the only thing you need to figure out is where to stay in Kennebunkport, and we have created the perfect list of options for you below.
Kennebunkport Inn is a beautiful hotel which is located in the heart of the city! The porch of this hotel overlooks the dock square – so you’ll be staying in the centre of the shopping district. All the rooms are cute, cosy and very well decorated. Most of the rooms also have a seating area! If you’re looking for a property with a great view, a great location and a great ambience, you’ve found it.
The Lodge on the Cove is a really nice and airy property with a rather relaxing vibe. The rooms are pretty spacious with chic pastel decor. Every room is equipped with a microwave, a fridge and a television, as well as a private patio. This hotel also has an outdoor pool with sunbeds and a pool table for you to enjoy a relaxing afternoon. To add to all this, you get free coffee and muffins in the lobby to start your day and you can rent bikes for free to roam around the coastal town of Kennebunkport. Close to various art galleries, this property is very conveniently located.
The Tides Beach Club is located on the beach. Can a property have a better location? With spacious bedrooms decorated suing marble and stainless steel, the rooms here are a class apart! All the rooms have an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning and a television. There is an outdoor pool, a fitness centre, a spa and a lush green garden for you to spend your afternoons at the property. And the hotel also provides chairs, towels and umbrellas for you to relax at the beach while sipping some delicious Tides Beach Club signature cocktails! For every beach person, this hotel should be at the top of your list of where to stay in Kennebunkport.
Edgewater Inn, as the name suggests, is located at the edge of a water body. That means, most of the rooms in this place have a total or partial sea view as well as a view of the beach. We recommend booking the two-bedroom villa because you get a private villa all to yourself with a beautiful view of the coastline and the water! Kennebunk Beach is barely a 10-minute drive from the property while the main town of Kennebunkport is just 1.5 kilometres (0.9 miles) away. This place is ideal for a peaceful and relaxing family vacation!
Harbor Inn is a beautiful property located in the heart of the city. This property has a sort of home away from home vibe.

Most of the rooms at this property offer a sea view. This property provides a farm-to-table breakfast which is a must-have if you’re staying here!
Cape Arundel Inn and Resort is a beautiful resort which is located right next to the ocean. That means that most of the rooms have a view of the ocean – a view so pretty, all you can see is the vast endless expanse of beautiful blue water! Each room is uniquely decorated and has a private en-suite bathroom and air-conditioning. Some rooms even have a balcony – we definitely recommend booking one of those. At this resort, you can also indulge in a daily wine and cheese hour or join the mixology classes that take place once a week. Don’t keep thinking about where to stay in Kennebunkport, just book this place!
Ocean Woods Resort is a beachside resort which is perfect for a family vacation. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and all of them have traditional decor and theme. This resort even offers apartments which have a private living area and a fully equipped kitchen. You can go relax in the outdoor pool, chill in the hot tub or head to the beach to spend a lazy afternoon by the ocean! There is also a nice garden around the property for the kids to play – and a little pond too. All in all, a great resort with an excellent location.
Hidden Pond Resort is probably the classiest resort in the area. This resort only has bungalows and cottages, which makes it perfect for a relaxing vacation! All the units come with a coffee machine, an iPod dock, a flat-screen TV, a DVD player, private bathrooms and all the comfort that you can ask for. You can even hire bikes for free at this resort! This property also has a spa, an adults-only serenity pool and an on-site bar. If you’re coming here for a romantic getaway with your partner, we suggest booking the one-bedroom bungalow to enjoy your privacy and quality time!
Located in the centre of the city, this studio apartment is perfect for people on the go.
