We absolutely loved this quaint and peaceful vacation spot in Kennebunkport! The hospitality was exceptional and the place was just beautiful, as well as in the room and outside! The chef's brunches each morning were divine! It's a great place to enjoy some wine outside by the water and relax as well. We hope to be back most definitely! I...

This inn is ideally situated in a quiet part of the town but really close to the beach. The rooms, although small, are beautifully appointed and the place was spotless. The breakfast is as described in other reviews, quite outstanding. The host went out of her way to recommend and make dinner reservations, both of which were superb. We would...

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to get a last-minute room here for the weekend and could not have been more pleased with our stay! We stayed in a dog-friendly room on the first floor. The room looked and felt like we were staying in a friend's beach home--the walls were a soothing light blue, and all of the...

This property is absolutely beautiful and well worth a visit. It is located next door to famous Mabels Restaurant and a short walk to the downtown area. The cottage was stunning, located on an inlet and wonderfully decorated. The hotel rooms in the main building were also beautiful, well-appointed and clean. As other reviews indicate, the three-course breakfast was incredible....

This hotel is very clean, nicely decorated, quiet and relaxing. The breakfast selections were very impressive and the food was delicious. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. They need to improve the wireless internet which was slow and disconnected frequently, replace the wall air conditioner which was useless, and install HD TV's; for the price you pay, you don't...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Edgewater Inn, formerly known as The Green Heron Inn one of Kennebunkport's historic Inns, is located on Ocean Avenue, in one of the town's most charming neighborhoods. It sits adjacent to an estuarine cove, near the mouth of the Kennebunk river and just around the bend from President George Bush's vacation home on Walkers Point. Overnight stays include a 3-course breakfast, prepared by Chef Jason Grant in the "on the edge" restaurant from eight to noon.The Inn was built in the early 1900's as a boarding house that provided shelter and breakfast for weary travelers. Twelve guest rooms including a cove side cottage, thirty-two seat restaurant. Its location, which combines the beautiful surrounding of the Kennebunk River and the convenience of its proximity to all major Kennebunkport attractions, contributed to its popularity from its early days. That tradition continues today. While relaxation at The Edgewater Inn is an art in itself, activities abound in the surrounding area. Guests enjoy rejuvenating walks along the rocky shore, enjoy the sun on the sandy beach, explore the numerous galleries and shops in Dock Square, watch the wildlife and the birds as they gather near the water next to the inn, or spend a sunny day on one of the nearby golf courses. ... more   less
