The Lodge on the Cove offers a modern and light hearted approach to the quintessential relaxed Maine experience. This newly furbished classic motor lodge is nestled on a wooded cove in Kennebunkport with a relaxed, yet refined, feel. The Lodge offers a vibrant mix of vintage, classic and contemporary furnishings, bold patterns and an upbeat color palette. It is a combination of natural elements, nautically inspired accents and local art that together bring an organic and eclectic Maine vibe. The Lodge will be the hub of activity with check in, lobby and a poolside bar – the perfect place for relaxing and soaking up the fresh Maine air. Onsite bar and restaurant, The Dory, will offer a wide array of fresh cocktails along with simple and delicious light fare. Glass doors open up to the pool deck creating a spacious area for games, gathering, dining or to simply just laze about. Welcoming and unassuming, The Lodge on the Cove is a happy place to visit, perfect for multi-generational travel, couples and young families.

One of my favorite hotels ever. Great location, absolutely charming grounds, great room and bathroom and extremely friendly staff. Wonderful in room amenities and breakfast. I can’t recommend highly enough. Don’t hesitate booking this.

My husband and I stayed at the lodge for our anniversary trip to New England. We really loved this place. Staff was so helpful and friendly. Great location. I would say everything in town is mostly in walking distance but kind of a long walk. However, they provide a free

We stayed just for one night in late September and although the hotel is some way out of Kennebunkport the room was a generous size and comfortably furnished. The rooms are set out in a motel style with ample parking near, if not outside, the room. It was perfectly adequate for

The weather turned bad when we were there so they closed the restaurant and the fire pit where we remembered our experience of making s'mores. We will remember those times and it will not hinder us from making reservations the next time we are in Maine. Love the decor and the

I enjoyed my birthday at this resort so much with my 3 boys and my husband! We purchased the superhero package and our children couldn’t have been more excited! There was so much to do as a family and we were so close to town! The staff were wonderful. The capes were handmade

We, too, had a lot of fun during your stay with us! The capes were fun to create and personalize for your boys. We hope you will come back and visit us again.

How far to nearest swimming hole? Thinking of Day trip inland. Thank you
Hi HughUS - There are quite a few accessible lakes in southern Maine: Bunganut Pond in Lyman (35 minutes from The Lodge on the Cove); Mousam Lake in Shapleigh (45 minutes); Sebago Lake (about 60 minutes).

We drove to the beach in just under ten minutes. Wouldn't recommended riding your bike there but the car ride is easy.

Our room was the size of a normal hotel room. We had 2 queen beds because of our 2 older kids. It was plenty of room for us, but having a really big room wasn't super important to us. I just loved this place because it felt like going back in time. It really did feel like being in the movie Dirty Dancing. The room was adorably decorated, clean, and had comfy beds. I don't know anything about the other place you are considering, so can't help you there. We only spent one night but hope to come back and spend more another time. We went to several places on the coast of Maine, and other than Acadia, Kennebunkport was our favorite.
