If you’re looking for a recommendation for romantic hotels in Southern Maine, there are plenty to choose from. With a beautiful coastal landscape, the challenge might be choosing, but there is one hotel in particular that appeals to many love birds, the Seaside Inn on Kennebunk Beach.
Seaside Inn is the only inn located directly on the shores of Kennebunk Beach where couples can enjoy lounging on the sands in the summer and take uncrowded walks during the spring, fall and winter. Seaside Inn is open year round, this family run/owned property dates back to the 1600s and is run by 9th generation family innkeepers! Couples may also find the outdoor hot tub a romantic touch while watching the ebb and flow of the waves meeting the shore. The wintertime can be especially romantic when couples may be lucky enough to enjoy the wintry beach landscape while watching the snow fall melt from the hot tub.
The Seaside Inn is a very ideal location, having beachfront access as well as being a short walk from Kennebunkport’s downtown and ocean recreation charter. Just up the street from the inn is Kennebunk’s Lower Village where there is a variety of interesting boutique shops and dining from Mexican, Italian, tapas style, a wine bar, and Irish Pub, to fine dining at Maine’s only 5 star restaurant – The White Barn Inn. Just across the bridge from the Lower Village is Kennebunkport’s famed Dock Square, a quaint district where vacationers can browse or go on a shopping spree in the many art galleries and boutique stores. Dock Square is also a foodie’s delight with a great restaurant scene from Hurricane’s to Bandaloop, Alissons and David’s Boathouse. Seaside Inn also offers free bike rentals, so you can take scenic bike rides along Ocean Avenue or Parson’s Way, or visit the Lower Village and Dock Square without worrying about parking.
So make a memory in this romantic gem of a hotel in Kennebunkport!
