We did not stay at the Inn, we were there for the gingerbread house making during the winter Prelude in Kennebunkport. The lobby of the hotel was decorated very nicely and all the staff was very professional and friendly. We attended with tweens and teens and we all had a fun time. So,If you ever plan on attending the gingerbread...

This was our first Fire & Ice and we had a wonderful time. I will say up front, that we were not staying at the Inn, so we needed to walk down to the event. Not a problem. We were told to expect a large and very festive event, and it certainly was. The live music was a plus inside...

Hello World Traveler! The beautiful decorations of the Nonantum at Christmastime never fail to amaze me! Always different but always lovely!

Hello There! I am so sorry you found your room noisy! That is so annoying when you travel! I wish we had been aware of your discomfort while you were here. We would have moved you or fixed whatever this noise was. I am wondering if maybe it was the truck that the ice was in for Fire and Ice?...

Beautiful waterfront room with fireplace. Spacious for two people, most comfortable bed and nice linens. Woke up every morning to changing colors of the sky against the water. Top notch place.
