We stayed here the last weekend in June because we just wanted to get away. We wanted to bring our dog, so it was important to find a place that was dog friendly. I was worried that the rooms would not be as nice because they were dog friendly, but the rooms were great! Both our dog and we loved...

I have passed by this area for years and never noticed The Edgewater Inn - my loss !! OUTSTANDING, FRIENDLY, COURTEOUS SERVICE - I was shocked that such a young staff would be so professional and accommodating which goes to show how much effort the owners put into teaching their workers that guests come first in the hospitality business !...

My husband and I just took an impromptu weekend trip to Kennebunkport and came across the Edgewater Inn. We loved our stay! From the well-designed and clean rooms to the fantastic 3-course breakfast, this is a must for lodging in the area. Caroline, the owner, was more than accommodating and helpful and we can't wait to plan another trip!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Edgewater Inn, formerly known as The Green Heron Inn one of Kennebunkport's historic Inns, is located on Ocean Avenue, in one of the town's most charming neighborhoods. It sits adjacent to an estuarine cove, near the mouth of the Kennebunk river and just around the bend from President George Bush's vacation home on Walkers Point. Overnight stays include a 3-course breakfast, prepared by Chef Jason Grant in the "on the edge" restaurant from eight to noon.The Inn was built in the early 1900's as a boarding house that provided shelter and breakfast for weary travelers. Twelve guest rooms including a cove side cottage, thirty-two seat restaurant. Its location, which combines the beautiful surrounding of the Kennebunk River and the convenience of its proximity to all major Kennebunkport attractions, contributed to its popularity from its early days. That tradition continues today. While relaxation at The Edgewater Inn is an art in itself, activities abound in the surrounding area. Guests enjoy rejuvenating walks along the rocky shore, enjoy the sun on the sandy beach, explore the numerous galleries and shops in Dock Square, watch the wildlife and the birds as they gather near the water next to the inn, or spend a sunny day on one of the nearby golf courses. ... more   less
