Yachtsman Lodge & Marina
Ranked #9 of 25 Kennebunkport B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 October 2013

This was fabulous-so much nicer than the larger hotels, the rooms have French doors opening out to the grass-about 12feet from the harbour river with all the super yachts and boats. Plus the staff were fabulous-great breakfast, the in the afternoon and port,brandy and cheese before dinner if you wish. All for a Very reasonable price. It was quiet, large rooms and very comfortable.

This lodge looks like a roadside inn from the road, but the view of the front of the rooms is the Kennebunk River! We loved the small marina right outside our room - it was so picturesque to watch the boats coming in each evening! The guest rooms are attractively decorated in a simple nautical style, enhancing the experience. The breakfast and afternoon tea were a treat to experience on the courtyard patio with the riverfront view and it also gave us an opportunity to socialize with other guests!

We love this place. It's slightly out of town but within walking distance of wonderful galleries and shops. Being right on the river is VERY peaceful and relaxing. The ducks and geese come right up to you looking for "treats." Very fun.

When we first started staying here a number of years ago it had just been converted from a garden-variety motel to the very nice place it is now. The rates were reasonable and we felt like we got our money's worth. Then, as we understand it, the Yachtsman sold and the prices when WAY WAY up to the point where "we" no longer consider it a good value.

Obviously, many people still do think of it as a good value so who am I to argue.

The only other thing I can say is that the breakfast they offer is "so Motel 6". Absolutely nothing special. We'd much rather go out.

Still, it's hard to beat the location.

This is a elegant fly-below-the-radar place, amazingly quiet for being only two blocks from Kennebunkport's Dock Square. Looking like not much more than a well-landscaped motel from the road, it simplicity belies lots of plusses that make the price totally worthwhile: An ample breakfast with enough to make a sandwich for lunch (ham, cheese, bread, hard-boiled eggs), tea time featuring home-baked pecan sandies, cocktail time with a glass of Port of brandy, bottled water in the rooms, L.L. Bean beach chairs available, bikes available, canoes available...Nice clean fresh white linens (no gross old-fashioned icky bedspreads) wainscotting/beadboard lofted ceilinged rooms, air-conditioning, wi-fi access and views of all the comings and going on the river and at the marina, a beautifully manicured lawn down to the water. A half open deck or an air-conditioned eating/breakfast area -- your choice and very friendly, helpful staff. SO much better than any Route 1 Motel.

The staff was so friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated on the banks of the Kennebunkport River and the boats are docked outside your room and it is a beautiful setting. The walls in the rooms are beaded board in a subtle tastefully done nautical theme. They had a nice breakfast in the morning followed by tea in the afternoon and port with cheese and crackers in the evening. All in all in it was a wonderful experience.

This place was great! The room was nice and clean! The afternoon reception of port and cognac was a nice way to relax in one of the adirondack chairs. The continental breakfast was very nice also. I would definitely stay there again!

My girlfriend booked this room as part of a five night stay in Maine. I was really impressed with the quality of the room, especially since I was a bit skeptical when we drove up: the building is a a motel style building where you park near your room and the door faced the exterior. Since we had our dog Stuart, we picked this pet-friendly hotel and in the room, there was a bed and bowl of water waiting for him. The room had beautiful wood beams and crown finishings that felt very New England. It was a nice, spacious room and we even had our own Keurig brewer. The toiletries were of high quality and there were lots of little things in the room like flashlight, hair dryer and etc...that were there for your use. We were bummed we didn't get to use the hotel's canoes but maybe another time.

The view out to the yacht pier was a peaceful sight to take in and a great way for us to start our Maine adventure. The breakfast included was definitely the highlight...everything from their own quiche, baked goods, waffle batter and iron, meats and cheese, and breakfast beverages helped you start your day's adventure with a full stomach. I would definitely stay at this property again.
