There are oodles of high end lodgings in Kennebunkport, so you have lots of options.

There are two types of "water" in Kennebunkport, the ocean and a tidal river.

If you want the ocean, then you aren't in walking distance of downtown unless you are a serious walker/athlete. Certainly not in walking distance if weather is inclement, or it's after dark. But, there is a trolley service in town.

If the tidal river works for you as "water" then you can be in walking distance of shots and restaurants.

The Colony Hotel is right on ocean (well, actually, across a road, but the view of the water is awesome.) It has a very good breakfast buffet included in the room price and a (saltwater?) pool. An old style, classic Maine Inn as you can probably tell by the photos on their web site. It's one of my favorites as I like old, genteel, wooden floors, big tubs, patina, etc. They have become dog friendly in the last few years, and dog owners have jumped on it. LAst few times I was there, I did see dogs. So if having dogs around bothers you, then cross them off your list.

The village cove inn is a very nice place to stay in kennebunkport. it is walking distance to town, and right on the ocean inlet where you have your own prrivate patio overlooking it and the marina, and they provide a continental breakfast. no pool though. the colony hotel is the only place in k'port with a pool.
