Quote: This was our long weekend in Maine for our 15th wedding anniversary. We stayed at the Colony Hotel, had dinner at the White Barn Inn, viewed Walker Point, and ran into the Bush girls at the Kennebunkport River Club where they were about to play tennis. An amazing trip!

White Barn Inn

Restaurant | "Phenomenal, Romantic Restaurant"

Five start, uber-romantic restaurant. Amazine cuisine, tremendous wine cellar and second-to-none service. Beautiful any time of year. Our friends go often in the winter as it has a warm and cozy interior setting.The dining room was fashioned out of an old barn, but don't let that dissuade you - it is trimmed with white tablecloths, candles, flora and more to stage a quiet, romantic setting.The sevice is outstanding - always someone there to address your needs, but never overbearing.

Colony Hotel

Hotel | "Beautiful, Stately Hotel with Gorgeous Views of the Ocean"

Colony Hotel Photo, Kennebunkport, Maine
Fabulous, stately hotel with old-world charm. An absolutely gorgeous view of the ocean that cannot be compared. Access to beach, on-site salt-water pool overlooking the ocean, terrific food, many near-by sites and attractions.

Very traditional - some rooms have A/C and TVs, but many don't. So, if you're looking to get away from it all, this is the place.

The hotel has bikes they will rent you for $5/hour - lots of fun.

Easy beach access is walking distance from the hotel, but better beaches are just a short drive away.

The dining room on site is lovely and open for all meals. Drinks and food can be ordered poolside and the service was great.
