Wonderful resort, close to amenities, downtown and attractions! Great breakfast that comes along with your stay, clean rooms and friendly service! A real treat during the Christmas Prelude as the are close to all the festivities and have their own as well!

I traveled around the US for my job and had the benefit of staying & dining in some of the worlds best resorts and hotels from the Four Seasons in Vegas, Penninsula hotel in Chicago & the White Barn Inn located in Kennebunkport. How does the Nonantum Resort compare to those places: even better! For starters, I want to talk...

What a beautiful place to stay with such a charm! It was a wonderful place to really get a good feel of the area. And the restaurant/breakfast was outstanding. I would stay there every time I visit Maine!

We spent the long weekend at Nonantum resort, it was early fall and perfect time to spent the weekend. It has the old New England Inn charm yet the modern updates. Walking distance to the town for window shopping as well as view of Kennebunk River.

Fall is the perfect time to come to the Nonantum! The leaves are beautiful and the whole Inn just lends itself to fall. Window shopping downtown is a favorite activity of many of our guests (no chains here!) When you buy something to wear in Kennebunkport your chances of having someone else wearing it at the special party you go...

Two couples traveled together for the first time to the state of Maine. We loved the Nonantum!

Thank you so much for sharing your honeymoon with us! It is terrific that you had such a wonderful experience! One thing that I think sets the Nonantum apart from the many great places you can stay in New England is the men and woman who are part of The Nonantum Family.

We've been coming to Nonantum for the past 6 years at Prelude and each year has been as good or better than the last one.
