We loved our stay at the Green Heron Inn. Dan and Tony are wonderful hosts, showing obvious enjoyment in everything they do. I couldn’t wait to try our first breakfast – it turned out that every plate was so attractively arranged that we had to take pictures before we began eating. Everything tasted excellent – better than we expected, since we have both been around the proverbial culinary block. Tony makes everything from scratch, including baked goods. He demonstrated his mastery of omelettes, southwestern breakfast wraps, pancakes, french toast, panna cotta, scones, gingerbread, brownies, oatmeal raisin cookies, chocolate chip cookies and more. My friend and I are looking forward to the publication of Tony’s cookbook, which is slated for early Autumn 2007. We had a very nice room which had its own fireplace and good-sized bathroom. The Inn has many things within walking distance – the Bush Compound, public beach, and the shopping district in downtown as well. The common areas of the Inn were always immaculately clean, as well as the grounds. We loved the Adirondack chairs that we could relax in while looking at the inlet. We took advantage of the generous offer of refrigerator/freezer space and use of their free internet access. We were disappointed by the narrow parking spots, leaving us barely able to open our sedan’s doors – this was the only negative part of our stay! Another note: We were positively addicted to visiting Dannah, the fabulous jewelry store across the street from the Inn – she has a fabulous selection which suits every taste and every budget.

- 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
