Clean room. Quiet, faced the shrines; other side of building faced the pool. Had a tv, fridge, a/c. Front desk helpful and friendly. Bountiful breakfast included in rate. Can walk to Kennbunkport. I believe the bus services the monastery (check to be sure) so when going to Kennebunkport you can avoid the traffic. Beautiful grounds to walk and enjoy. Would stay again.

Last autumn I stayed at the Franciscan Guest House in Kennebunk. It was easy to find and located just a few blocks walk to everything. However, it is tucked into a quiet setting so you can get off the beaten path if you want.

The accomodations were very good with well-lit, tidy rooms and plenty of space. The staff was friendly and responsive to questions. I have stayed in both the "White House" and the main guest house--each has their unique character but are equally hospitable. The morning breakfast "banquet" included many Lithuanian cakes and specialties alongside typical American offerings. Good coffee!

The grounds are the hidden gem here: spacious, quiet and scenic. It is a great place to collect your thoughts and relax as you walk along the path surrounding the many acres of grass and trees. There are special places to reflect if you are spiritual but even the non-spiritual person will feel at home.

Overall a great alternative to traditional hotels!

Beautiful property with miles of walking paths; Peaceful setting near the ocean; Simple and clean accommodations; Easy walk to the beach or into the town of Kennebunkport. Unbeatable price. Highly recommended!

Excellent value right in the heart of Kennebunk, Maine. Free parking, short walk to the shops/bars/restaurants downtown, and the beach. Its not the Four Seasons, but the hot breakfast buffet was included, and the vast park/forest lands are perfect for groups and families.

Pool area has lots of space for tanning, and the walking trails lead to great views of the river, marshlands (the kids really liked the birdwatching) and coast.

I found this a great place to stay. The setting is beautiful - lush greenery and well kept grounds. The good humored hosting along with a generous breakfast set me up for days at the beach or rambling through all the shops and other attractions in the area. I don't think there's a better deal in the area, especially so close to the center of Kennebunkport.
