Went to the Nonatum Resort for a early winter get away. The room was great, clean and bed was comfortable. Great views from room, great breakfast. Staff was exceptional, helpful, pleasant and gracious. Cannot wait to go again!

We have stayed at the Nonantum the same weekend in June for the last 5 years. I am absolutely speechless for the same 5 star service we receive year after year. The area is some of the most stunning and the rooms are impeccable. We are already reserved again next year in ‘our’ room and count down the days to next June. Thank you for making our anniversary weekend amazing- year after year. 💜

Hello Leah: Happy Anniversary! We love being part of your family traditions. Southern Maine really is one of the most beautiful places on earth and despite living here my entire life, (OK so maybe I am just a little biased) I still find new places to explore and visit every year. We look forward to welcoming you back again next year! Kind Regards, Jean

Amazing location, fabulous food, nice staff, overall a wonderful experience. Would love to go back. I biked along the coast, shopped downtown, and spent a lot of time looking at the ocean. This spot was close to it all and my room was clean and cozy. The food really was top-notch as well. Thanks for having me.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Nontantum for 2 nights for an anniversary "getaway." I have to say this was one of the very best resorts we have ever stayed at! The King Deluxe corner room was fabulous with a gorgeous view of the river. The bed was comfy with nice linens. We even had a small gas fireplace in our room. Everything was spotless - VERY clean room and hotel. They even provided ear plugs and a white noise machine - although we didn't need either as it was very quiet. There was a nice private balcony for watching the boats go by and sun set across the river. Although it was the wrong season for us, there is a large outdoor pool with a poolside grille, and what appeared to be many kayaks available. There is a cute little pub onsite serving food and drinks. The grounds were nicely maintained - there was always someone inside or outside sprucing up something! This would be a gorgeous setting for a wedding! Included with the room price is a plated breakfast each morning - with a choice of about 8 entrees. Delicious food and big quantities. Probably the best omelet I have ever eaten! EVERYONE at this resort was super friendly - from the front desk people to the breakfast servers, the chambermaids, and the outdoor maintenance guys. So nice to have friendly smiling faces everywhere! It was also a very environmentally friendly hotel. They had recycling bins in each room for cans and bottles; and in the lobby and near the elevators on each floor, they had recepticles for returnables, paper/cardbord, and trash. The location of this hotel is great - many nice shops and restaurants just down the street in Dock Square, and nice beaches close by. I highly recommend this resort!! I'm sure we will go back!!

Gorgeous resort, exactly what you are looking for in this area. Easy walk to shops and restaurants or have dinner on site. The breakfasts were amazing, and the staff was very very kind. Also, you can't beat the waterfront views.

A beautiful facility with incredible views. Probably one of, if not the friendliest and most competent staffs at any hotel I've ever stayed. Nicely appointed rooms and an excellent breakfast were bonuses we didn't expect. The pub on site was also a pleasant surprise and provided a great place to have a quick dinner with a good local draft beer selection. The only detraction were the pillows weren't very comfortable and the gas fireplace in our room didn't work (didn't spend much time there anyway).

I recently stayed at the Nonantum Resort for a friends daughter’s wedding. Everything was perfect! The Inn is lovely, clean, quaint and tastefully decorated. Service and staff were friendly and helpful no matter where you were… pub, lobby, outdoors or at breakfast. The food is delicious and all the meals I ate, (at the pub on arrival, the breakfasts that were included each morning and the wedding dinner) I was part of the “clean plate” club at every meal! The chowder is a little different (no potatoes) but oh so delicious! I wish they sold the chowder in quart size containers so I could bring more home. Loved the views from the inn and the close proximity to the downtown Kennebunk shops. Of course, you never can predict the weather, but even the last weekend of October was spectacular… couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend and venue!

What an unbelievable spot! We were in town for a girls weekend. Our view was fabulous, our food was delicious, the staff was wonderful and so friendly. It is a gem in such a stunning location. Even towards the end of October the views cannot be beat!
