“Comfortable B&B”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Comfortable, spotlessly clean B&B in the heart of Kennebunkport. Welcoming owners who were anxious to please and offered recomendations for local dining and attractions. Excellent, huge breakfast which changes daily. Tea and coffee available at all times. Very narrow, steep and curved staircase, which could be an issue for some. Help was offered with bags.

Stayed September 2013, travelled as a couple

I love our cottage, beautiful, very clean and spacious. Fluffy towels and a rubber duckie =D. We only had a few days to celebrate a mini honeymoon, and I am so glad we booked it here. Breakfast is hot and delicious. First morning we had breakfast delivered in the cottage. But we wanted to experience as much as we can so the next day we decided to have breakfast in the dining room in the main house. It was lovely, the staff was working fast to serve everybody, at the same time but would definitely stop and chat or make sure everybody is taken cared off. We met and had great conversation with other guests. We had a lovely wedding and we had an equally lovely honeymoon gate away. Thank you Walter, Judi and Jason

This was a mother-daughter weekend that I have planned for a long time and tried to anticipate all the details for my 84 y/o mother to have an unforgettable experience. The location is very good as it is close to the main shopping area and restaurants area. We stayed in room #12, in the main house. My mom preferred to have breakfast in our room, so we requested that it would be delivered. The first day I was very disappointed that the breakfast was just given to me at the door in a basket. It was not set at the table, I had to do it myself, no salt, no pepper. I asked for 2 cups of hot milk and the response was that they were really busy and any requests have to be placed way in advance. She was kind enough to get us the hot milk. The second day was much better. They set the table for us and brought us the hot milk. In general it was a good experience but they could have handled the first day breakfast much better. They were very eager to give directions and help with tips about restaurants in the area. The room was beautiful, clean and spacious. It has a fireplace that we enjoyed at night. Overall it was a great weekend.

Room Tip: Room#12 is good for disabled travelers as is in the main house, close to the dining room and kitchen

kportinnkeepers, Owner at Maine Stay Inn and Cottages, responded to this review, 27 October 2013
We’re so glad that you and your mother enjoyed your weekend together. It’s always our goal to exceed our guests’ expectations, and we are certainly disappointed that our breakfast delivery was not what you had anticipated. We are proud to offer a gourmet breakfast delivered to our suites, which is something that isn’t offered at any other B&B in the area. That said we try to be very clear that breakfast is delivered “to your door,” not served with wait staff in your room. Most guests choosing this option do so because they particularly value their privacy. For that reason, we supply all of the essentials in your suite (salt and pepper shakers, silverware, coffee, creamers, sweeteners, etc), all of which were located in a cabinet in your room. In order to avoid delay in the morning, we ask that any special requests be placed the night before, either by phone, text, email, or hand written note. On this particular morning, 10 additional suites requested breakfast delivered to their doors at the same time. So that everyone received their meals hot and on time, your hot milk request wasn’t going to be fulfilled until we finished delivering these breakfasts, which is what we were trying to communicate, but perhaps we could have done this better. Because it was clear that you expected your table set, we arranged for staff to do so and deliver hot milk with your meal the following day. As a result of your comments, I have reviewed with my staff how to accurately portray breakfast delivery so that we do not disappoint in the future.

Stayed here for one night on our honeymoon trip through New England, and wish that we could have stayed longer. We stayed in cabin #9, and it was exactly what we were looking for. The bed was amazingly comfortable, very clean cottage, and the kitchen was perfect for our stay. They give the option for the cottage guests to come to the main house for breakfast or have it delivered. We chose to have it delivered and it arrived right on time and was delicious! The main house is absolutely beautiful, as is the entire town of Kennebunkport. Very close to "downtown" shops and restaurants. We would stay here again, without a doubt!

Our stay at the Maine Stay Inn on 10/18/13 was perfect. Seriously, the only thing that would have made it better was if we could have stayed another night (They were full) The Inn itself is beautifully decorated. No delayed maintenance here. Our room, and the ones I peeked in while they were being cleaned, were each spacious and well appointed. The attention to detail was worthy of the 5 stars. The bedding was more luxurious than my 400 count Egyptian cotton! The food was delicious. We had Maple Vanilla French toast with a raspberry sauce. Suffice to say I asked for the recipe and got it. The Innkeepers/owners and Jason were so helpful in giving us ideas for restaurants, etc. Jason even called around to help us find a place to stay for the 2nd night. These people should right a book on how to run a B and B because this was the best one we have stayed at. I can't wait to go back!

The level of service, attention to detail, and care taken with every aspect of this Inn is really impressive. It's as if the innkeepers surveyed guests from all over the country asking them what was most important to each during a B&B vacation, and then managed to include every response and suggestion at The Maine Stay Inn. There is a certain intensity to it all as other reviewers have noted--but I mean that in the most positive sense. Perhaps it's because being laid back and creating an impeccable experience may be a bit at odds. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay, and appreciated that anything we asked for--whether it was dinner suggestions, towels/chairs for the beach, or a reservation for a couples massage--was delivered almost instantaneously and with pleasure. We really couldn't ask for more and I hope to make it back to this lovely inn in the future!

Spent 2 nights here on a tour of New England with another couple. What wonderful friendly, hardworking host and hostess running this beautiful house. Amazing breakfasts, thoughtfully prepared and presented. Not your usual run of the mill breakfast, very creative. Great location. Clean comfortable rooms and coffee/tea available in the dining area all the time and also in room. Cookies served after 3pm - yum!
