The service is outstanding. The owners are very accommodating and give wonderful suggestions for your visit to Kennebunkport. The rooms are beautiful. This bed and breakfast, although close to Kennebunkport, is tucked away in a very quiet spot. It was a wonderful place to relax. We went bicycling during our weekend stay. The riding was easy but very picturesque. The...

Hi Susansanderson2017, We hope you do always visit us when you come to the Kennebunkport area. We always enjoy seeing guests who have been here frequently. You two are great! I like the way you described our location. Kennebunkport is just around the bend of the river but we are so private here. Come see us again soon. Harriet

This was our first experience at the Bufflehead Cove Inn. It was recommended by our niece who spent her honeymoon here. My husband and I stayed in the Hideaway because we favored a private entrance and waking up to a waterside view. This is a family owned and operated inn and everyone we came into contact with was personable, helpful...

Hello Lynnweisgerber, What a very nice review. I love the phrase.. " Harriet and Erin were easy to talk to like long time friends with endless energy." Helena was pleased that you liked our breakfasts. We hope we see you again sometime in the future. Have a great summer, Harriet

After staying at Bufflehead Cove in 2014 we promised ourselves a return visit. It was even better than we remembered. This time we were fortunate enough to stay in the Balcony room and we really enjoyed the fantastic views of the river from the balcony itself. Helena’s breakfasts were as delicious as ever, with the Dutch Babies a standout! Above...

I didn't realize that your last visit was in 2014. It seemed much more recent that you were here. I guess it's that, "Time flies" kind of thing. I hope you are enjoying the rest of your trip. The weather is beginning to improve. I hope we see you again some time in the future. Thank you so much for...

I've been a regular visitor at Bufflehead Cove Inn for the past 33 years. The Gott family and staff are by far the most caring and accommodating of any bed and breakfast inns that I've stayed at. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. Most have great views of the tidal river as well as the thoughtfully landscaped property. The...

Bufflehead Cove remains our favorite escape after many years. The "Dutch Babies" for breakfast, served by a friendly fun team, are out of this world in presentation and taste....best breakfast EVER! Superb location, excellent customer service, impeccable decor, and a lovely water view make this inn a delightful trip.

The personal attention you receive at this bed and breakfast is fantastic. The atmosphere is wonderful. Your every need is tended to, but yet it is not stuffy. You will find yourself wanting to return again and again. If you want a peaceful and relaxing getaway this place is for you.

I do want to apologize for my tardiness with this review. This place should be rated a 10 plus. Everything about it is first rate. The owner and her son and their staff understand how to provide the best customer service. We seldom stay at B&B's but this one is magical and offers separate rooms with private entrances.

Hello Mapita, We thank you for your review and your kind words. I am glad you broke your trend of not staying at B&Bs and visited us. We do have some rooms with separate entrances and are very private. We were also able this year to provide outside, porch breakfast right up into October... not the norm but it was...

Our stay at the Bufflehead Bed and Breakfast in Kennebunk was wonderful. It is located on the shores of the Kennebunk river. The room was amazing and the breakfast was delightful. Breathtaking views of the Kennebunk river. Such a peaceful and ideal setting.

My husband and I had never been to Kennebunkport, ME before so we decided to drive the 3 1/4 hours north. From the moment we drove up the driveway we knew our stay was going to be perfect - and it was. Harriet and her son Aaron were the most gracious and friendliest of hosts - just a "knock on...

We loved this inn, build in the late 1700s, tucked away in a quiet location on Bufflehead Cove. With its wrap around porch where you can watch bird life and chipmunks and the welcoming long fire in the lounge, this is Maine hospitality at its best. It has a friendly atmosphere and we enjoyed meeting other guests around the breakfast...
