This was our second time staying here. The rooms all have a small patio looking out on the Kennebunk River and a marina. Very comfortable after being out hiking all day. There is a small refridge in each room, you are within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. Breakfast is very good, quiche, meats, cheeses, yogurt, cereals, muffins. Afternoon...

Stayed 3 nights at the Lodge. Rooms small and clean, decor simple. The back overlooks the marina and it's a quick walk to the village. Breakfast was a little disappointing- same continental breakfast everyday that you have to "nuke" to warm up! Could use some variety!

We both liked this place. It's simple and easy, and well done. The location is fantastic and is a few minutes walk to kennebunkport. Breakfast was ok, but not a massive choice as it's not a big hotel.

This was a great experience. The colors of the leaves were at their peak. George and the staff were very cordial. We had dinner at Mabel's, a locals hangout for seafood lovers. The staff at the Yachtsman was pleasant and helpful with menu choices in the local area that were spot on. Rooms were comfortable and large. We will visit...

Nothing can beat a room on the water. When I walked into our room it was exactly as I wished. Beautiful, warm, sparsely decorated (to let the river & Marina be the focal point). This was the best night's sleep I've had at any hotel. The beds were soft yet firm and I for one loved the firmness of the...

I have never been to a "motel" that had so many wonderful amenities. We arrived at 5PM in late October. It was cool outside and we were tired. At checkin we were told to have some brandy, port and cheese and crackers in the breakfast area. It was lovely to sit yo the water and have a cocktail and nibbles....

We we're very satisfied overall with the room and loved the beautiful pitched ceiling and wood moldings throughout.

This inn is very nice and the whole town is classy. Good shopping and restaurants downtown. Great seaside visit. We will visit here again sometime soon. No wonder G. H. Bush chose this place. You can't get much closer to the ocean.

We have visited Maine many times, and this was our third stay at the Yachtsman. The first two visits were perfect and highly recommended, however, our last visit was not as expected. When we checked in, the room we received had previously been occupied by a guest with pets, and the room had the worst smell, probably from animal waste....
