The Maine Stay Inn & Cottages

Welcome to Maine Stay Inn and Cottages

Discover Our Romantic Inn in Downtown Kennebunkport

Ideally located on a quiet residential street in the Kennebunkport Historic District, Maine Stay Inn & Cottages blends the romance and coziness of a classic New England bed and breakfast with the warm,  personalized service of a luxury boutique hotel.

Though we are just over a block from Dock Square – the vibrant, bustling center of town – we offer a setting of unrivaled privacy and serenity. Our eleven cottages are arranged among beautiful gardens with scenic views and plenty of hammocks and outdoor seating areas for relaxing during the warmer months.

Our main house, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was built as a private residence circa 1860 by merchant sea captain Melville Walker. Though it’s been beautifully restored over the years, the original charm endures with traditional New England architecture and a wraparound porch framing heavy oak doors and balustrades, the original fireplace, Czechoslovakian stained glass windows and a flying staircase. Cottages vary in style and décor, from chic and modern to classic and elegant. An array of options is also available that range from luxurious suites with fireplaces and whirlpool Jacuzzi tubs to those with queen beds that can accommodate up to 4 people.

In addition to our expansive grounds, guests enjoy a complimentary gourmet breakfast in the main house, on the porch or delivered to their suite. Breakfast favorites include homemade specialties like lemon blueberry ricotta pancakes, strawberry rhubarb shortcakes with baked eggs and herbed mashed potatoes with coddled eggs. In addition, we’re happy to accommodate any special dietary needs. Other thoughtful free perks include beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and beach parking passes.

Come discover Maine Stay Inn & Cottages, where the authentic New England bed and breakfast experience is seamlessly infused with contemporary luxury and style.
