This is a very chic Inn. Our room was well -enough equipped and beautifully furnished, but rather small and cramped. Breakfast was simply fabulous however, true gourmet dining. Elizabeth, the Innkeeper was charm personified and very helpful in recommending restaurants and sights

Hello, Lindsay. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the Inn at English Meadows, and that you found our breakfasts to be especially enjoyable! I enjoyed hearing about your adventures on foot each day, walking to many of Kennebunk Lower Village and Kennebunkport's wonderful nearby shops and restaurants! I completely understand your concern about the size of your room. Beach Walk is by far our smallest room, best suited for either a single guest or a shorter stay. I think you and your wife would have been much more comfortable in any of our other more spacious rooms or suites -- particularly since you stayed with us for several days! On your next visit, I'd love to have the opportunity to personally assist you with your reservation. Please email me at innkeeper@englishmeadowsinn.com or call me at 207-967-5766 and I'll be pleased to help you select a room or suite that will offer you much more space to move around or just relax in. Sending you both my best regards, and looking forward to your next visit!

What happened to David and Kate Paris?
Hello! Thanks for your question. David and Kate Parisi decided last year to sell the inn and move on to other endeavors. They're still fairly local, in the Portland area. Before I bought the business at the end of August, I worked alongside David and Kate through the entire month. This experience provided a valuable opportunity for me to observe and help out with many aspects of the business, become familiar with the day to day operations (especially the magic in the kitchen!) and in the end it enabled a very smooth transition for myself, our staff and our guests. I love this beautiful property, I'm very grateful for support of the Inn's wonderful staff, and thrilled to be the new owner and innkeeper. I hope you'll continue to return to the inn so I'll have a chance to meet you in person. :)
