We have stayed here every year for Thanksgiving for the past 5 or so years. We have always stayed in the cottages which provide ample room for our family of 4 and are so nicely renovated. The sleeper sofas are amazing and having the kitchenettes and extra sitting area really makes a difference for our family. Walter, Judy and Anna...

We love seeing you every year and enjoy watching your family grow up. I am always glad to hear that guests do appreciate our Thanksgiving supper. I remember staying in this town before I became an innkeeper, my family thoroughly enjoyed our dinner out at a fabulous Kennebunkport restaurant, but by the evening we were all hungry and there was...

We stayed 6 days at one of the cottages for our anniversary. It was like home away from home. All the staff was very helpful with letting us know of things to do during our stay. Breakfast was amazing every day. This was our first stay and hopefully not our last.

We stayed in a cottage at this bed and breakfast. It was very private, with parking right outside the door. There was a fire place, a very very decorated bathroom and even a little table top with a kitchenette. There was dishes provided and a small fridge in room for left overs. We were not in need of anything. Breakfast...

We stayed here 1 night in the four poster room. The room was very pretty and decorated in traditional New England style. There were glasses and a wine bottle opener, as well as cups and coffee (Keurig) in the room. The room is on the small side and the bathroom is quite small with a just a narrow shower, but...

I love this review as it really describes the Maine Stay perfectly. We have some rooms that are very large (over 435 square feet) and several rooms of only 204 square feet (the four poster room). Even if a guest chooses a smaller room they still get to enjoy the ambience of the inn and our ideal location. Everyone here...

Thank you Larry and Joan. I love giving back to our Vets. Every year I have given 5 guest rooms away to veterans and I am always glad I did it. We work very hard at our job, but do not do enough for those who should be recognized. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. See you again.

Wonderful! Loved our cottage. Great cheese platter. Water bottles cold in the refrigerator- so important. Inn keepers and staff do nice. Breakfast to die for. My phone died and I had no charger- owner helped me and charged my phone. Thank you so much

Went for our honeymoon. Couldn't have been more pleased with the room and the service. Everything was exactly what we expected. The entire staff was super friendly polite and courteous. Judy does a superb job. I look forward to visiting again!!!

I think these honeymooners were in cottage 5, which is my favorite suite for newlyweds. I hope this couple will be able to come for their anniversary as we all enjoyed them. I am so glad that we were able to make this momentous occasion special. Thanks for letting me know you really enjoyed the stay.

We stayed two nights in one of the cottages. It was decorated very nicely and appeared to have been done recently. We had a small kitchen, table and 2 chairs. There is parking for every room and cottage - all assigned. We had breakfast delivered to our room so we didn't spend time in the main house. The innkeeper was...

Lovely Inn just on the edge of the main part of town so quiet location but easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. Staff friendly and welcoming and included breakfast was very good. The inn is full of character, well appointed and comfortable with complimentary tea and coffee available in the lounge area.

The main house is indeed full of character. Built in 1860 it boasts original doors with crystal glass panels, gorgeous and beautifully maintained inlaid floors, stained glass doors and windows, and a unique floating stairway. There are larger inns in the area, but I honestly feel the Maine Stay is the prettiest. I am delighted that these guests noticed the...
