1802 House Bed and Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Went there in Nov 2013 for a romantic getaway and could not have been happier. The Innkeepers were friendly and helpful. Terri had dining recommendations that were spot on. The room was immaculate. We had what is the smallest room at the Inn, but it had a gas fireplace that made the ambiance wonderful. The food was excellent and plentiful (you will not go hungry !!). We would happily and heartily recommend the 1802 House !!

Hi Bill,

Thank you for your very kind review. We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay and really appreciate that you've taken time to share your feedback. A lot of our guests love that small room. We remodeled with luxury bedding and all modern amenities making it a cosy and comfortable room for those short romantic getaways.

Give our best to Barbara and we hope to see you back again soon!

Best wishes,
Teri, Innkeeper

My fiance and I went there this last weekend for Valentine's Day. Terri and Roger were incredibly hospitable and made us feel like we were visiting family. The breakfast every morning was fantastic - 3 courses and homemade. Felt like I was in my mom's kitchen :-). We were traveling from NYC and the trip took way longer than it should've as there was a snow storm. Terri called us to see how we were doing after we let her know we were going to be a while. She called the restaurant that she had helped arrange reservations for and asked them if they could keep the kitchen open for us. We had a wonderful dinner and came back to homemade chocolate cupcakes. They also upgraded us to the Sebago Suite as an early wedding gift. Can't say enough good things about this place - my fiance and I would highly recommend for a weekend getaway for a week away. Very romantic and cozy.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful! They all have fireplaces and heated blankets on the beds. Was very nice...

Hi Julia,

We were so glad that you and Allan were able to get here safe and sound. I hope the journey home was uneventful.

Thank you for your very kind review. We do prepare all three courses of our breakfast fresh from scratch each morning using local Maine ingredients wherever we can do. Nothing is pre-packaged or pre-prepared. It takes a little longer, but based on guests comments, I think it's worth it.

It was a pleasure to meet you both. I can't wait to see your wedding photo later this year. We wish you all the best for your special day and will look forward to welcoming you back to stay soon.

Best wishes,
Teri

We went here for my wife's birthday and it was perfect. Looking at the pictures online that customers took, I was a little concerned about the upkeep of the place, but it was not a problem at all. The room and whole place was beautiful and very well maintained. We stayed in the Windsor room with a very nice fireplace and a huge tub. Teri helped arrange for my wife to have a beautiful bouquet with her favorite flowers and there were delicious chocolates for her as well. I even forgot my credit card at one of the local diners and Teri helped retrieve it for me after we left and made sure we got it back. Food was also delicious with a gourmet 3 course breakfast each day. Thank you for everything!

Hi Mark,

Thank you for your kind review. We greatly value our customer feedback and appreciate that you took a few minutes to provide for us. I look at the old photos and see how far we've come since we purchased the Inn. I'm painting the Arundel room now and when I'm done with that remodel, we will have refreshed all of the guest rooms! I am very pleased with the updates and, more importantly, our guests are raving about them as well. As of late last year, we are a new Select Registry member as well and are excited to be included in such a distinguished collection of Inns. New photos will be on our website in early March so please do check it out.

I'm so glad that you both enjoyed your stay. Best wishes to you and Callie and baby. It was very nice to meet you and we hope that you will be back to visit again.

Best wishes,
Teri

We had a wonderful weekend staying at the 1802 House. We had a lovely sunlit room with a beautiful bathroom. The Inn is meticulously clean and very well kept. The breakfast was delicious and enjoyed sharing it with very nice. Terri and Roger made us feel at home and we would definitely stay at the Inn again the next time we are in Kennebunkport.

Hello Fran and Howard,

So good to hear from you! Thank you for your very kind review.

We love Christmas Prelude too. Kennebunkport does the holiday right. I'm so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our Berwick room. It is one of our smallest rooms, but our guests do tell us how much they love it for those weekend away stays.

We wish you the very best for 2014 and hope to see you again soon.

Best wishes,
Teri, Innkeeper

Can't say enough about the comfortable and relaxed vibe The 1802 House offered for our post holiday escape. Our room was cozy and the towels are thick! A first rate experience. Thanks Teri for a memorable week end - we look forward to returning!

Hi Marc,

Relaxed and comfortable is exactly what we strive for here at the 1802 House! It makes me smile that you mentioned the towels. They get a lot of comments from our guests who like that they are so soft and plush.

Thank you and Joanne for choosing us for your Kennebunkport stay. We enjoyed meeting you both. Hope you have a good 2014 and we will look forward to seeing you again.

As guests of 1802 House for the past 20+ years, our annual visits to the Inn have been restful, enjoyable and informative. We have met so many guests at the breakfast table and enjoyed exchanging "finds" in the area with them. In addition to meeting people from all over the U.S. and other countries, we would share some of the good and not so good times-- such as, the young couple concerned with returning home to an area in Va. where the snipers were still at large.

We look forward to Autumn, the foliage and the Inn. Since the early 90s, we have seen the Inn evolve in many ways as the ownership changed, each one bringing their own specialty to the premises. When we first visited, there was a common telephone in the sitting area, no TV and WBACH was playing throughout the Inn and the guest rooms.

Now there is TV, WiFi and other amenities. Through it all, the food, hospitality and comfort has remained constant, if not better. Although our visits, for most of the time, were in October, we have experienced Maine through 1802s eyes in March and June. The weather, shopping and access to the restaurants were different, but the Inn was always the same.

We consider it our "home away from home" and have recommended staying there to many of our friends and relatives. All the rooms are lovely and comfortable--we have stayed in all of them! Each year when we return, there's always something new in the Inn and we have fun checking to see what changed since our last visit.

1802 is definitely worth a visit!

Gloria & Bill F.

Room Tip: They are all great.

Our recent stay at the 1802 house was so nice. We spent two nights, and felt right at home. We have spent many nights in Kennebunkport and this is one of the best by far. The room was comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. Thanks for making our stay in Kennebunkport a great experience.
