What a fantastic experience, lovely updated stylish rooms, excellent service and an out of this world breakfast. This is about a 15 minute walk into the main heart of Kennebunkport shops and restaurants and right near the beach and walking paths. If we had more time, we would have taken advantage of the use of their kayaks. We will be... More

Excellent location, close enough to walk to town & restaurants, across from the docks & river, very quite and relaxing. The best is the "Top Chef" quality breakfast, very substantial, flavorful and fresh, he really outdoes himself. The coffee was great, which is important to me. The proprietor was very helpful, knowledgeable about the area restaurants & entertainment. Nothing was... More

Stayed there for a long weekend and was blown away. Most amazing breakfasts ever and exceptional service. Family owned and extremely professional and helpful. Immaculately clean rooms and very comfortable. Two beaches, one larger and one mor private right across the street. Will return again and again. Could not have been a better experience!!!

My husband and I are well traveled and have stayed in many B&Bs and hotels in the US and abroad. I have never posted a negative review about a hotel or B&B in tripadvisor. Even when I have a less-than-desirable experience, I try to work it out with the establishment. After all, reasonable people can disagree. In this case, every... More

Kind staff, wonderful suite offered to us, so our baby could move around. Nicely renovated, full of taste as the amazing breakfast included, fine cuisine! Great location, quiet and peaceful. If they had a pool, it will be almost perfect, but it was a great 2 nights stay, will come back without a doubt.

We stayed at the two bedroom cottage with its coastal relaxing colors. The rooms were very clean, tasteful and comfortable. As for the breakfast, it was magical. The chef was creative and produced breakfast dishes that were beautiful and delicious. I recommend the Edgewater Inn highly.

Immaculate and quite comfortable. Close to town center and great location for an early morning walk. And if you don't want to go to town, there are some very good dining options within a few hundred yards or less. Seems to be more couples oriented than for families traveling with young children, but an excellent B&B.

Comfortable, tastefully decorated with soothing coastal colors. Very clean, close to beach, river, downtown. Breakfast is amazing! Kudos to the chef! Will definitely revisit. The owners are very gracious and moved us immediately when our air conditioning unit failed.

My husband and I just returned from 3 nights at the Edgewater. The new owners have done a wonderful job on renovations. The rooms though on the smaller side, are very comfortable and very clean. The bathroom was large and the walk-in shower fabulous. The highlight is the complimentary breakfast. The dining area, just beautiful, the waitstaff very attentive, but... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Edgewater Inn, formerly known as The Green Heron Inn one of Kennebunkport's historic Inns, is located on Ocean Avenue, in one of the town's most charming neighborhoods. It sits adjacent to an estuarine cove, near the mouth of the Kennebunk river and just around the bend from President George Bush's vacation home on Walkers Point. Overnight stays include a 3-course breakfast, prepared by Chef Jason Grant in the "on the edge" restaurant from eight to noon.The Inn was built in the early 1900's as a boarding house that provided shelter and breakfast for weary travelers. Twelve guest rooms including a cove side cottage, thirty-two seat restaurant. Its location, which combines the beautiful surrounding of the Kennebunk River and the convenience of its proximity to all major Kennebunkport attractions, contributed to its popularity from its early days. That tradition continues today. While relaxation at The Edgewater Inn is an art in itself, activities abound in the surrounding area. Guests enjoy rejuvenating walks along the rocky shore, enjoy the sun on the sandy beach, explore the numerous galleries and shops in Dock Square, watch the wildlife and the birds as they gather near the water next to the inn, or spend a sunny day on one of the nearby golf courses. ... more   less
