Friends got married at the Colony...we opted to stay somewhere a bit smaller..perfect choice! Clean, inviting room, beautiful grounds to enjoy and relax in. Hosts were friendly and more than helpful. We loved our stay and would highly recommend.

from start to finish our visit to Kennebunkport was perfect. This motel is clean, close to everything, and the owners are warm, welcoming and very accommodating. Cute shops right across the street, along with a beach and larger hotels with wonderful dining. The center of town with great shops, restaurants and boat trips is 5 minutes away at most. There's...

Thank you for making our visit perfect. A spotlessly kept room to return to after enjoying the Prelude, always completed our day Nothing is better than a clean, friendly, independent motel where not only to you get to meet the owners, but other guest, also. Jan and I certainly hope that you have totally recovered from your fall and that...

Our friend's wedding was next door and we lucked out by getting a room at the Fontenay Terrace. Less expensive and so charming. Love these small family run motels that still grace the Maine coast.

This was my first time staying at this motel. it was clean and nice. As a single mom I traveled with two children under 10 and felt extremely safe. It was walking distance to the beach and two eateries. I would definitely come back again!

The Fontenay's location across from Colony Beach is such a perk for our family. We have easy access to the beach, Dock Square restaurants, and a couple of walk-up food establishments for great beach eats.

The motel has a beautiful yard full of flowers with a table and chairs set up overlooking the river. The room was clean and had 2 double beds, microwave, refrigerator and a coffee maker with complimentary coffee. The location is great as you can walk to the beach and downtown Kennebunkport. The owners and staff were very friendly.
