Places to Stay in Kennebunkport: Kennebunkport Inn Review
Last weekend I explored Maine for the first time with a good friend of mine. For years, Maine has been on my list of must-see destinations, but it made a perfect girls trip.
We drove up from Boston, a mere 2 hours drive and we spent 1 night in Kennebunk, after a night in Portland. When people talk about traveling to Maine, they often talk about Portland, the larger city, but I’m so happy we stayed a night in Kennebunk. It’s a beautiful little town with a surplus of lobster rolls, locals cafes, and adorable shops all decorated in the spirit of Fall.
We stayed the night prior in Portland at the highly acclaimed Inn by the Sea and to be honest, it was a let down. More on that to come, but when we arrived at the Kennebunkport Inn, it immediately felt better. The place is gorgeous and overall, the place had a better energy. The rooms were small, but extremely comfortable, and the bed linens were awesome. I can’t stand staying at nice places, only to find the bed linens are starchy and feel like sandpaper against my legs!
A Kennebunkport Resort
That night, we indulged in happy hour before going to dinner and it turned out being our dinner. I’m not exaggerating when I say the buffalo chicken wings were the best I’ve ever had. My friend and I ordered dishes, both served beautifully in cast iron skillets, and both a mere $7. It was easily the best food we ate the entire trip.
Aside from quality and comfort, the Kennebunkport Inn is in the perfect location. The town is quite small, but you’re within a stone’s throw from all the restaurants and coffee shops. This is one hotel I will DEFINITELY stay at again. It’s one of the best inns in Kennebunkport Maine.
