The Franciscan Guest House is a special place. The accommodations are basic, clean, very simple. I usually stay at higher end resorts, but the most special retreat brought me to the guest house with my mother, aunt and cousin. I just LOVED it! The grounds are spectacular. The people that run the establishment are kind and warm. The location is fantastic; between the town and the beach. I have to say Kennebunk and Kennebunkport are probably my favorite place to visit.
I would recommend this spot for anyone looking to spend time in the area in a basic, reasonably priced place with beautiful grounds and great location to town and beach. I think people of Christian faith would get more out of the experience than people of other faith. But if the religious aspect doesn't bother you, you will appreciate the Franciscan Guest House. I rated the guest house 'very good' but would place it between average and very good if I could. I consider this rounding up.
I signed up for another retreat there the day after I got home.
