We do have a picture of these rooms with the booking information, i will try to add a bathrm picture as well. Larger...

We did not get the rooms in the pictures, we got a nasty old cottage. The carpets and bed covers were awful, patched together and dirty. Smelled bad, I was afraid to go barefoot. Fortunately, the weather was beautiful, so we spent very little time in the room.

Upon arrival we asked for an upgraded room. They told me it wasn't included in the package. Room was very tiny and very old. Short staffed. No Kleenex or coffee in room. Very little space. Didn't even stay for our second night

Thank you for taking your time to let us know about this via trip advisor. of course, it may have been more helpful IF we had known about your disappointment in person. unfortunately, all we received, on that rainy, deluge forecasted, morning was your room key with a note that you 'may' be back, but not sure. we also do...

Stayed here for one night with my husband and our dog. The room was clean, but in need of updating. Bathroom was tiny. The WiFi was not working and apparently hasn't been for quite a while as other reviewers had noted the same thing in past reviews. Also I was charged $10 more than the advertised rate on the website....

We do apologize for the bad wifi connection. as i showed you when we were standing ourside your unit, somehow my iphone connected but yours did not. we did refund you for the rest of your stay, and you were very courteous when you left immediately after. Fortunately, we fixed the internet for all guests that afternoon, (it did need...

Located close to shops of Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Access to private beach. Nice cottages with everything you need. Pool, hot tub, laundry, grills and firepit available. Short distance to Maine Diner. Friendly staff. We will go back often.

I do not recommend staying here. We rented a studio cottage with the assumption it would be its own building since the website made it seem that way. However, when we checked in we found that it was duplex cottage, this was an issue for us since we have a 10-month old baby and a dog. I expressed my concern...

Sometimes, when it rains, it pours. we are sorry you stayed on one of our busiest summer weekends, where each assigned parking space was occupied, making the side of your unit especially small, when someone broke the cover to one of our 2 grills, (the one on the other side, with six burners, worked fine), we developed 2 rips in...

The day we arrived we found the room very clean and well supplied but we found out the second day that there is no room cleaning (other than clean towels) until the third or fourth day of a stay. We did not know this in advance and were disappointed to come back the second night and find the beds unmade,...

Thank you for your comments, Deena. I have since called the that agency and had them add our correct Pet information. So hopefully, noone else will be surprised. However, we did not charge you for your dog, even though we did make the room pet free after your check out. we cannot apologize for our Pet Policy, because children, bare...

We had another great time. Plain and simple. My family of 4 were in 1 room, and my sister and her daughter were in a smaller one beside us. Back and forth to the pool and ocean we went for the whole time we were there. It's not posh but we don't really require that for a holiday near the...
