Two couples traveled together for the first time to the state of Maine. We loved the Nonantum! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the accommodations were top notch, the food was delicious including the breakfast buffet, and we felt more welcomed at the Nonantum than we had ever felt at a resort location!

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. Most of them have been working here for...

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. The lobby is so beautifully decorated but more importantly the staff makes you feel so welcome and gives a festive feel to the entire weekend. The work they put into the Fire and Ice events...

This was our first Fire & Ice and we had a wonderful time. I will say up front, that we were not staying at the Inn, so we needed to walk down to the event. Not a problem. We were told to expect a large and very festive event, and it certainly was. The live music was a plus inside...
