Booked a room with a gas stove/fireplace in the room which didn't work. Paid for a room with the best view & then didn't use it because the gas stove didn't work. Also, the more updated heating system didn't work either, it wouldn't shut off and had to keep turning it off & on repeatedly because it was so hot...

Great location, staff, and restaurant. Staff was very responsive to questions, and location of things to see. Restaurant at hotel was excellent, and they had an excellent male/female duo for entertainment in the dinning room with dinner.

We stayed in the newer buildings apart form the main hotel and our room was picture perfect. A view of the water and beautiful appointments in the room made it a memorable stay.

Room was updated and clean . Check in process was easy and friendly. The on sight restaurant was just mediocre. Overall a decent place to stay even though we were there only for one night! Convenient to town and walk to Mabel's .

All of our rooms have been recently updated and folks seem to really be enjoying the Cuddledown bedding. We carry it in our gift shop and find it to be a big seller. I have it on my bed at home and have to say I have a great nights sleep on these very soft and cozy sheets. Please come...

If you are assigned to the Port side building (all rooms face the river) ask for the top floor or it will sound like a heard of elephants walking.

Hi Lisa: Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on your visit to The Nonantum Resort. This year we switched to all wooden floors which are popular for their looks but as you very correctly point out, the noise was an issue. We have just completed putting rugs in each room and we think that will really help with the...

Weekend stay in Kennebunkport and this inn was simply beautiful Our double room with two iron beds and appropriate decor was made for a great girls weekend.

Hello! Thanks so much for your response! You will be happy to know that for the 2016 season we will have a brand new large elevator AND we added rugs in all the rooms so I think access will be far easier and the noises will be kept to a minimum! As you stated The Nonantum is a beautiful place...

The rooms are quaint and comfortable (Beds were a tad stiff) and the setup overall is very homey. The staff are so friendly and the pub/hotel bar is great. They serve free breakfast buffet in the morning and offer free shuttle rides into town until midnight. This allows you to enjoy a beautiful evening out and not have to worry...

We just finished a weekend stay at the Nonantum Resort. The room was spacious, food excellent, and the staff very pleasant and helpful. The grounds were particularly beautiful; I can imagine this resort would be a great place to stay in warmer weather!

My husband and I spent the weekend here for a friend's wedding. The resort is quaint but not too small. There is adequate space to relax.
