FUN FAMILY VACATION
Hello, Barbara!
I just wanted to personally thank you again for a wonderful (although too brief) time that we were able to spend up there this past week, and the attention (and attention to fun) that you showed my two children. They had a ball, and whenever they recap our northeast vacation trip to relatives or friends – the time spent at Nonantum with you is always one of the first things that they mention. I sincerely hope that we have the means, the time and the funds to come back there again next season (and to stay longer).My daughter also wanted me to let you know that she took her parting gift from you (a Charms Blow-Pop) and completed her “assignment” – she kept track of her licks until she fully reached the bubble gum center – and she wanted to let you know that it took her 975 licks to get to the center. You wouldn’t believe how diligent she was about doing all that – she even made little individual tallies on a sheet our whole entire trip back to Boston. It was very cute, and I was amazed at how determined she was.Thanks again for everything – hope to see you again soon.
-Carter U. (Martinsville, VA)

ENJOYED 95 OCEAN RESTAURANT
We loved the music the last evening during dinner. Great touch. Bartender and wait staff were excellent.

– Mary K. (Oregon)

THE RESORT HAS EVERYTHING WE NEED…
But it is the friendliness and level of service of the staff, from reservations to check-in to check-out that brings us back to The Nonantum. We returned this year for our anniversary.

PLEASURABLE STAY
Excellent breakfast buffet. The gift shop is nice with good prices. All staff were professional and friendly. Beautiful plants. Kudos to the Groundskeepers staff. Our room was comfortable – great bed & pillows.

BEST VACATION EVER
We heard about the resort from my brother-in-law. It more than lived up to our expectations – fabulous! Toby the Shuttle driver had a super personality and was so accommodating. All your staff was EXCELLENT – made it our BEST VACATION EVER!

OUR FAMILY WILL ALWAYS HAVE FOND MEMORIES…
Hi Tim,
I just want to drop you this note to tell you everyone was very pleased with the 90th birthday dinner for my father this past Thursday evening! The wait staff were incredible, the food was superb (loved the chocolate cake), and of course the room and its water view were just perfect. Our family will always have fond memories of the event and The Nonantum.I plan on having breakfast there next week, as I want to bring my ten year old niece there to see the fairy garden.

Best regards,
Paul P.

AN OUTSTANDING HOTEL
Overall an outstanding hotel, making our tour of New England more enjoyable. staff were all exceptionally friendly and helpful. If you could please add a large area map of Maine in your reception – to provide information for non-USA visitors.

KAYAKING AND CAMPFIRES
We went kayaking and the service was great. The lady who worked with us met our needs well and was personable. Nonantum is lucky to have her. Our kids also enjoyed the family campfire. We arrived late but Colby Nathan was helpful and kind and let us have marshmallows after we arrived and it was over.
– Monte B. (Mississippi)

BEYOND EXPECTATIONS
Devyn and Barbara (in Activities) were awesome. They took extra special care of our daughter. Thank you. Great ribs and prime rib dinner. Would recommend you keep the pub open later.
– Bob A. (Melrose, MA)

WILL DEFINITELY WANT TO COME BACK AGAIN
We stayed 3 nights and thought the rooms were excellent, friendliness of staff was exceptional, and hotel grounds were superb. Breakfasts were great with a lot of variety. Dinner was fantastic. Great service by everyone and staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. Great value for what we got for the price. Will definitely want to come back again.

OUR FAVORITE PLACE
The Nonantum Resort remains our favorite place to stay in Kennebunkport, or anywhere else for that matter!

WONDERFUL PLACE
One of the warmest, friendliest places we’ve ever been to. Bravo! Incredibly friendly and efficient staff. The breakfast buffet was phenomenal.

LOVELY ENVIRONMENT
Everyone who works here is such a pleasure. The rooms are beautiful & we love the sensitivity toward environment. Our room was very clean and comfortable.
– C.A. Firone

EVERYONE IS VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL
It is refreshing to see friendly helpful people working in a resort. From the front desk reception, to the bellman that showed us rooms, to the breakfast crew. I am especially impressed with how helpful & friendly & professional the “younger” staff members are. Thank you all for a pleasant & enjoyable stay!

The only thing I would improve is a little better coffee – otherwise you guys are great!
– James R. (Woodside, CA)

*Good news, James, we’ve since upgraded our coffee service to a custom 95 Ocean blend by Coffee Roasters of the Kennebunks that is made specially for The Nonantum in small batches. We hope you’ll come back again!

A BEAUTIFUL HOTEL IN A PERFECT LOCATION
Our stay here has been one of the highlights of our vacation & we are sorry to be leaving.
– The Fowlers (England)

THE ROOM WAS AMAZING AND HAD A GORGEOUS VIEW
We were here for my birthday and the card and chocolates were an unexpected surprise and so thoughtful! We definitely hope to come and stay here again. The restaurant was closed when we visited (in November). We heard the blueberry ribs were legendary and we were very excited to try. So we were so bummed we didn’t get to eat here. We definitely plan to next time!
– Stephanie B.

TRULY ENJOYED OUR STAY
Love the charm of the resort & the staff couldn’t be any friendlier. Thank You.

DON’T CHANGE ANYTHING
Portside Room 252 is always clean and comfortable and the view is fantastic. We love sitting out on the balcony. The whole Nonantum staff are friendly & very welcoming. The breakfast staff especially made our mornings enjoyable. Exceptional – Elise, Ben, Kaitlin and of course Gail who sat us every morning. Corine does a great job cleaning our room during our stay. Kim, the groundskeeper, was extraordinarily helpful & friendly. Sheila M., too. What a lovely lady!
– W. Pollock

FUN FAMILY ACTIVITIES
This was one of the cleanest hotels I ever saw and the staff, especially in the activities tent, were helpful and great! We enjoyed the kids activities, kayaks, and lobster boat tour.
– Lauren G.

WE LOVED IT!

STAY THE WAY YOU ARE – FRIENDLY, SUPPORTIVE AND HELPFUL
My room was soothing & beautiful with colors, decorations & a beautiful view from the window! And exceptionally clean. Rose (at the front desk) was a true blessing to make my stay enjoyable. Thanks to the Chef for taking the time to cook a special gluten-free meal for me! And to the Giftstore – for exceptional service at my purchase. Corrine, our housekeeper, went above & beyond making our stay nice. Very friendly. Cookies were wonderful. Stay the way you are – friendly, supportive & helpful. God Bless & thank you again!

YOUR PLACE IS SO UNIQUE
It was our first time out east. We had a great stay. Will treasure the memory. Loved your (original 1800’s Otis) elevator. The bed was very comfy! So bright & cheery. Your staff are so smiley and helpful. Your waiter Ben was so friendly and informed us of the tide. Great guy – will pray for a great future for him.
– The Hruby’s (St. Cloud, MN)

This is our last night stay on this tour and it was the BEST.
Thank you. I wish we had more time to enjoy your resort. Could yo provide a shuttle service for your guests?
– Sara S. (Salvador, CA)

*You’ll be glad to know that we are now providing complimentary shuttle service for our guests within a 5-mile radius of the resort, Sara. Hope to see you again!

WE LOVED THAT THERE WAS A “BACKYARD” AND THAT IT WAS ON THE WATER
The dining as well. The food was delicious and the staff very pleasant. The breakfast buffet was a huge hit.

EVERYONE IS FRIENDLY
The Resort is upscale, but not pretentious. Even the other guests are nice. We always meet other families we enjoy while there. It reminds me of my vacations as a child, where the fun is in simple things, like sing-a-longs by a fire.

THE FOLLOWING MORNING WE ENJOYED YOUR DELICIOUS BREAKFAST BUFFET.
Very impressed with the selection and service. We had terrific service and everyone in the dining room staff was very pleasant with smiles on their faces. As we checked out, Mary assisted us with a smile on her face and another young lady was chatting with me and my children trying to pick out a new fragrance of soap for your hotel. We walked out of the lobby with a very pleasant feeling. As we thought it couldn’t get any better, we stopped at your gift shop and Paula was a great help. Very kind and helpful. We look forward to staying with you again!! THANK YOU!!

WE WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL STAY
We stayed with you this past weekend – we didn’t have reservations and we happened to drive by and thought how cute your place looked. We pulled into the parking lot and there was an attendant in the front portside and he kindly directed us to the lobby. Your flowers were beautiful and were greatly admired as we walked into the lobby, Peter helped us with our reservation and asked us if we would like to see the room first. We stayed in room 251. Very clean and nicely decorated with a very pretty view. Very excited that your hotel participates in the recycling program.

WHAT A GREAT WEEK WE HAD. I WISH WE WERE STILL THERE.
I met a woman who had been coming there for 50 years. I know why. We will see you next year for our third in a row!
