This was our second trip back to Bufflehead. Often times when we go back to some place that we loved the first time, it does not live up to what we had remembered. Not the case here. Bufflehead seems to be like a fine red wine. It just keeps getting better with age. There is nothing about this place that is not absolutely top of the line. The rooms are wonderful (we stayed in the hideaway which was spectacular), the linens, towels and beds are superb. The people are among the most welcoming and gracious that we have encountered anywhere. And as if all that is not enough, the setting and the views are among the most beautiful and tranquil anywhere on earth. I know it's a big statement, but go this charming place let me know if you find it any different. We have been before and we definitely will be going again!

We booked a last minute stay at the Bufflehead Cove Inn for a Saturday night. We received top-notch service from the moment we stepped on the property. Set way back on a quiet street, the Inn feels as though it's miles away from civilization (in a good way!) but it's just minutes to Dock Square and other area fun spots.

Our room (the Balcony Room) was immaculate, and had one of the most comfortable beds we've stayed in in quite a while! Breakfast out on the back porch overlooking the cove was a special treat. We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the location, and wished we were staying for more than the one night.

We will definitely stay at this inn again next time we're in the area, and highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Kennebunkport area.

Room Tip: The second-floor Balcony Room features a private porch with sitting area, and overlooks the cove. A...

We just returned from our stay at Bufflehead Cove Inn and couldn't be more pleased with the property, the setting, the owners. Not to mention their gourmet breakfast severed on the porch overlooking the cove. We have stayed at many B&Bs over the years and this lovely inn was our favorite. Don't hesitate to book your stay!

The staff at Bufflehead Cove excelled in making our stay a completely wonderful experience. The setting is serene and peaceful, yet we were just a short drive or walk to downtown Kennebunkport. Breakfasts were superb. Staff were always helpful with answering questions, providing tips on restaurants, securing reservations, etc. Will definitely be back to this spot in Maine and will definitely stay here again.

We just came back from two amazing nights at Bufflehead Cove Inn. Everything was absolutely perfect - the house and grounds were beautiful, our room (we stayed in the Cove Room) was so comfortable, and the breakfasts and afternoon wine and cheese were delicious!! Erin was so helpful with everything - he gave us great recommendations for dinner and made reservations for us, set us up with bikes so we could go on a bike ride, offered us a flashlight for our walk back from dinner, etc.... just little details that make the difference between a good visit and a GREAT visit. A lot of the other guests we talked to were on their fifth, sixth, and seventh stays at Bufflehead Cove Inn - once you go you can't wait to go back!!! I could gush on and on, but I'll just say STAY HERE!

We reserved a room at the Bufflehead Cove Inn many months in advance after reading the glowing reviews on this site and we couldn't have been happier with our choice! We stayed in the River Room, which was the perfect size for us, and included a nice size balcony which overlooked the Kennebunk River. It was such a peaceful setting and truly made us relax. Each morning Harriet (the owner) and her family had a delicious and HUGE breakfast waiting for us. My husband follows a carb free diet and they were great at accommodating this. Now that we are back home, we actually try and recreate their special breakfasts on a Saturday or Sunday to help bring us back to the time we spent at Bufflehead Cove. It was our first time staying in Kennebunkport and Harriet, the owner, and her son Aaron were so helpful in giving us suggestions for great places to eat, day trips, beaches etc; this was great as it helped to take a lot of the guess work out of where to go. They are also just lovely people- great to chat with, and so laid back. The Inn itself is quite small, and extremely cozy which we loved. Even though it is small, it was never noisy and you never felt like you were on top of any of the other guests. In relation to the center of town, it is about a mile walk, and we would often leave our car at the Inn and walk in to avoid having to find a parking space, and enjoying the outdoors too! We live in a city, so we are used to walking everywhere. We can't say enough great things about this Inn, we have been raving to our friends and family about it since we got back, and recommend anyone who is planning a trip to Kennebunkport to stay at the Bufflehead Cove Inn. We can't wait to return! Thanks for a terrific vacation!

This was our first B & B experience and what a perfect introduction. From the minute we got out of the car. Our first impression was WOW and the that sums up the experience. Our host was perfect, our room ( the river room) was idyllic, our breakfast was delicious. I would recommend Bufflehead Cove to everyone.
