“2nd weekend of Prelude”
Reviewed 14 December 2011

This is the 13th year of coming to prelude and the 12th year we stayed at the Inn. We love the Inn and its central location. The staff are always friendly and helpful. We stayed in one of the family suites that sleeps 6 and having stayed there before we knew the pull out couch is not comfortable so we brought our air mattresses.

Second year going to K Port at Xmas time. The whole town is so festive it puts one in a great mood. The Inn and it's staff are very helpful and not overbearing. The location is matchless. Charming and friendly and a great get away.

Room Tip: Room facing the center of town are preferable.

First time in Kennebunkport, the Inn was exactly what I had in mind. Above average decor and attention to detail with "home" feel. Daybed in room for third person. Gas fireplace puts out a lot of heat, but I missed the crackling aroma of burning wood. Two armchairs in the King room provided a comfortable place for my sister and I to have a glass a wine before dining on lobster pasta and some of the freshest ahi this far east of Honolulu at Dock One, ground floor at the Inn. Service, attentiveness, and general vibe of staff? From the desk to dining room to housekeeping—beyond 5 stars for staff. Good value. Would recommend and return.

Room Tip: Room 303 is on the street corner and, though our evening was quiet, our view was parked cars and we...

Celebrating Christmas Prelude is the best way to begin the holiday season. As it was our 15th
year or so, we very much enjoyed the Kennebunkport Inn. The rooms are very nice (we were so glad to see that "our room" had been freshly painted and new bed linens had been chosen)

The location can not be beat, once you park your car (and during Prelude weekends it is truly a major pain) you can walk to everything! I liked the breakfast but thought that there could have been more of a choice as far as the hot items. Nonetheless, its always a great time!

We will be back next year!!

It has become a family tradition to stay at the Kennebunkport Inn during the first week of Prelude. From the moment you check in to the moment you leave the experience is magical.
From the great country breakfast in the morning to the sing alongs at the bar in the afternoon, the Kennebunkport Inn should be your desitination for a great Prelude weekend. The staff is friendly, courteous and very much obliging. The location is ideal to the great events of the weekend. Highly recommend!!

Room Tip: Staying in the main inn or the river rooms are wonderful
