It is hard to beat Maine in the summer. This property is also linked to some of best properties and restaurants in town. Favorite restaurants are The Tides Beach Club, Earth at Hidden Pond, and Ocean at Cape Arundel. Use the rental bicycles and make it to Cape Porpoise or downtown Kennebunkport and grab a lobster role at The Clam Shack or Mabel's

Room Tip: The main house at the Cape Arundel Inn is hard to beat

We booked the Ocean Room two years in advance, changing our entire reservation once during the two year period. I must say, it was well worth the wait. Waking up in the morning to the view of the ocean through a massive picture window which framed the ocean perfectly, was breathtaking. We also kept the windows open the entire stay to enjoy the amazing sounds of the ocean. A personal balcony provided additional space for our enjoyment of the view from our vantage point. The September weather, except for the morning fog, happened to be perfect, which enhanced our weekend adventures in Kennebunkport. It was wonderful to be mobile and explore the town on bikes provided to us by the Cape Arundel Inn without concerns of parking, etc. Last but not least, the breakfasts each morning were outstanding, creative and delicious. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Maine and we would highly recommend The Cape Arundel Inn.

Room Tip: Staying in the Seacrest facility will provide enhanced views of the ocean.

Cape Arundel Inn & Resort is a very nice place. We were not able to be in the main house and stayed in the Club House Inn which is not on the main Ocean Blvd. That was okay because it was very quiet and peaceful. The only negative we had was that you have to carry your bags up a narrow and curved staircase. If you have any health or arthritic problems this is not good. Myself, I have very bad knees and my husband had to carry all four of our heavy bags up the narrow staircase and our room was at the very end of the hall. We finally figured out we could go down the back stairway by the laundry entrance and it was much easier on both of us. We are not spring chickens so we like easy!

Room Tip: Try to stay in the Main Inn and not the Club House. It looks like the rooms are much nicer and right on Ocean Blvd

Very comfortable bed and ample room size

Nice decor reminds you of home

The bathrooms were old and could use a makeover

Window air conditioner ... have not seen one of those in years

Inconvenient outlets and slow wifi

Nice room but if a late sleeper not for you very noisy large gaps between doors housekeeping loud so forget about sleeping past 8
Staff in both inn and restaurant are fine recommend Oceans for dinner
Major downside no car service so if you want to go out for dinner no alcohol for you must drive
No taxis available with a total of a group of 8 inns a fee based car service would be
Can not blame staff for management decisions

Dear Tom P,

Thank you for recent review of Cape Arundel Inn.
We are thrilled that you were able to dine at Ocean Restaurant, it is truly a Kennebunkport gem! The Main Inn was built as a private family home in 1895 and while we have made many updated to the property there are still some squeaks and creeks that do still occur. You are correct that there can be limited car service available in our area, we do our best at the front desk to be able to answer all questions and assist where we can – especially in transportation needs. We do offer bicycles to all our guests on a complementary basis and we also offer daily rentals on street legal golf carts. We do hope to welcome you again in the future where we can show you all of the wonderful offerings our property has.

Best,

Jana Bissonnette
