“It's like being with family”
Reviewed 22 May 2005

We have been going to the Green Heron for thirty years and have always enjoyed the convenient location, the small size and the wonderful breakfasts. Tony and Dan are the new owners of three years and they have not only continued the traditions of the Green Heron, they have improved the comfortable feeling you have when you are there. They treat you like family and make you want to return. There is no reason not to continue the tradition of staying at the Green Heron Inn when In KPT.

The Green Heron is the most fantastic place to vacation - I have been coming here with my folks every summer since I was born and continue to come here with my own kids now. Dan and Tony make the experience so special with homemade cookies, gourmet breakfasts, and over the top hospitality. The local places to eat, shop, go to the beach etc. make this a very well rounded spot! Lots to do! Highly recommended!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Edgewater Inn, formerly known as The Green Heron Inn one of Kennebunkport's historic Inns, is located on Ocean Avenue, in one of the town's most charming neighborhoods. It sits adjacent to an estuarine cove, near the mouth of the Kennebunk river and just around the bend from President George Bush's vacation home on Walkers Point. Overnight stays include a 3-course breakfast, prepared by Chef Jason Grant in the "on the edge" restaurant from eight to noon.The Inn was built in the early 1900's as a boarding house that provided shelter and breakfast for weary travelers. Twelve guest rooms including a cove side cottage, thirty-two seat restaurant. Its location, which combines the beautiful surrounding of the Kennebunk River and the convenience of its proximity to all major Kennebunkport attractions, contributed to its popularity from its early days. That tradition continues today. While relaxation at The Edgewater Inn is an art in itself, activities abound in the surrounding area. Guests enjoy rejuvenating walks along the rocky shore, enjoy the sun on the sandy beach, explore the numerous galleries and shops in Dock Square, watch the wildlife and the birds as they gather near the water next to the inn, or spend a sunny day on one of the nearby golf courses. ... more   less
