We had a great stay at the Nonantum! My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed at the Nonantum during Christmas Prelude. We were very impressed with the level of service provided by the staff throughout our stay. On Sunday, we enjoyed a tasty breakfast before we left. Again, the staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating. We look forward...

Hi Travis: Thanks so much for your nice review! I am delighted to hear you are planning a return visit! Our staff is what sets us apart from the many other lovely places on the Maine coast. Our hiring process is quite different from the norm in that our number one priority is not background in hospitality but whether or...

We wanted to stay at the Nonantum but didn't think we'd be able to afford it. Thanks to their fall specials we were able to spend two nights here to celebrate our first anniversary. We stayed in a queen bed water view room in the main inn. I'd never stayed in a room a with wood floor before. Little details...

Hello Disney Travel Lover, Thanks so much for the wonderful review. Judging by your name "Disney Travel Lover" I am going to guess you spend a lot of time at Disney Properties so perhaps that is your standard for excellence? I certainly am flattered if we compare well with the Disney Hospitality! We have had our staff trained by The...

The Nonantum Resort never fails to exceed our expectations for a great weekend trip to Kennebunkport! The staff are pleasant, the rooms are clean and comfy and the breakfast is always tasty. This year's Fire and Ice event was great fun. The pub on the first floor adds a nice touch for a night cap after exploring the quaint downtown...

Hello Lindy! Thanks so much for your kind remarks! Heckman's Pub is super popular for a night cap among our guests. Did you know we also serve a great pub menu in there as well? Many of our summer guests enjoy sitting on the porch in front of Heckman's and loving the wonderful Maine summers. Perhaps you can visit us...

We've stayed here every year for the past 6 years for the Christmas Prelude. The hotel is always so beautifully decorated and the staff, despite the fully booked hotel, is always very friendly, helpful and cheerful. The hotel is an easy walk to Dock Square and all of the shops which is especially nice since parking is very limited. Also,...

Wow! 6 years in a row! Thank you so much! I really appreciate your ongoing support!

This was my third time at Fire & Ice, but my first time staying at the hotel. Although the weather might not have been ideal for an ice event (54 degrees), the Nonantum went out of their way to making the overnight magical. We had a complimentary lighthouse print and shaker pint glass in our room for each of the...

I am delighted to hear you had a great first visit at The Nonantum! It was quite a trick to pull off an ice bar weekend with balmy temps but as always the Nonantum elves threw out a bit of pixie dust and made the magic happen. It is so much fun to be part of such a wonderful team!...

Hello Lisa: I have to agree with you! The decorations we have over the holidays are just magnificent!

The hotel is one of the true gems of the seacoast...a true original that has been impeccably maintained. Close enough to walk to Dock Square (there was also a shuttle available) the Nonantum has amenities that make you question why you would ever want to leave the resort. We stayed during Christmas Prelude and attended the Fire and Ice event...

We had the good fortune of staying at the Nonantum during the second night of their 6th Annual Fire & Ice event. From the get-go, the staff was welcoming, warm and kind.
