Was looking for a quiet off season place to unwind for a few days. Found this place and it is perfect. Nice small two room suite that overlooks the water. Quiet pub within the inn to enjoy a couple of pints with a bowl of clam chowder. Just what was needed to unwind. Great staff and good food. The perfect...

I was very pleased working with the Breakwater Inn to amend a booking. I reserved the room through a 3rd party site because I had a gift certificate and paid in full. I wasn't able to make a change through the booking site so I contacted the inn. Riley in Guest Services got back to me quickly and made the...

We stayed at the Breakwater Inn and Spa for 2 nights the week after Christmas. We loved the view of the river from our very large, comfortable room #205 in the spa wing. We felt like we were the only couple in the hotel because it was so quiet and the staff was so attentive. A nice touch was the...

We chose this at the last minute because we and another couple had reservations for dinner at the White Barn Inn and it was convenient . We were very pleased and were on the top floor of the Spa wing. It was quiet, the room and bed were very comfortable and there was ice and water already and waiting for...

Great care obviously went into the design of the room. From choice and coordination of colors to the unique amenities, everything was well thought-out and tastefully assembled. It's an older building and creaky in the hallways and narrow stairwells, etc. but that's Old Colonial for you! Great yard sculpture and relaxing place to sit by the river: it's not on...

Easy check in, clean and well appointed room, great lounge and restaurant, friendly staff and walking distance to center of Kennebunkport. Plus this weekend there was trolley service and a progressive trolley dinner. I would return in a heartbeat.

The Breakwater is a very convenient place to stay in Kennebunkport. The view of of the harbor is scenic and an entertaining experience watching the boats go out and return. Rooms are a little dated. However they are well cared for. It is across the street from Mable's Lobster Claw, a great local seafood restruant.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and booked the Breakwater Inn & Spa. What a gem! This is an excellent place for a retreat, whether you book the spa services or just enjoy your spacious, immaculate room overlooking the sea, as we did! The staff was wonderful and so was the complimentary breakfast in the dining hall. Enjoyed...

If you are looking for restful and relaxing retreat, this is it!, We stayed in a room next to the Spa. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. The aromatherapy and Zen music throughout the Inn was so soothing. The ladies who work in the Spa building were friendly and eager to make your stay memorable. The spa, relaxation room,...

I spent a few days at the Breakwater last week and found the hotel to be quite charming. They have a variety of room options to choose from. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful from the moment I arrived until my departure. The room that I had in the spa building was very comfortable and I had ample room...
