We have been traveling to K'port since the 70's, and have always heard great things about the Green Heron Inn. Since we had our children we always rented a beach cottage, but now that those days are over, we decided to try the inn out and it was fabulous. Dan and Tony are new owners, (for the last two years) but they continue to carry the torch for the original owners who built up the reputation of the inn for hospitality and charm! We had a charming little room with a fireplace that overlooked the porch. Breakfasts were beyond wonderful. Dan and Tony's small touches make it just fabulous, with a themed menu (for the 4th) and specialties that change each day with lots of choices. The cookies are to die for that they offer with afternoon tea or coffee, beware they are addictive! We will be back for Labor Day and I can't wait!! PS Kristin, their helper, was just a cute as could be with suggestions of how to spend time in Kennebunkport. Everyone there is loving their job and it shows!

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
