This is one of the best places I have been to. My oldest daughter had a salt scrub and my other daughter and I have Manicures...

I came here with my family for a weekend getaway. I booked massages for the ladies. The reason I didn't give a higher rating was that I didnt know the Inn is located in two separate buildings. It was not made clear to me at time of booking. The spa building has all the spa services, fitness center and nice...

Rooms are large, attractive, and quite comfortable. We stayed in an waterview (king) room in the inn, and took advantage of their January/February special. Bottles of water in the room each day and a few pieces of saltwater taffy left on the bed by housekeeping. The location is good - not really close enough to walk to town in the...

Dear Gordon R., Thank you for making The Breakwater Inn and Spa part of your New England road trip. We love being a home away from home for guests while in Kennebunkport. Our hotel does have two buildings available for our guests, each of which offers a slightly different experience. The method of booking doesn't determine where we place guests,...

Needed a little time away from the busy schedule and my wife and I found this place to be perfect for that. Great view of the bay, no elevators but that added to the experience, you get an actual key vs. a key card. Nice place to kick back and relax.

We stayed here for 2 nights on a recent trip. We stayed in the new part of the Inn. Some of the staff were not too friendly but overall we found the accommodations to be quite good.
