Where Traditions Begin

The Nonantum is a family resort in Kennebunkport Maine that has provided a beautiful setting for celebrating life’s special events - and quiet vacation retreats - for more than a century. Our family owned resort in southern Maine offers casually elegant accommodations. The Carriage House Inn takes you back to the Victorian era and gives that quintessential coastal Maine Inn feel, while the Portside Lodge is more contemporary and decorated to celebrate the nautical culture of Kennebunkport lodging. The Nonantum has fun for all ages with award-winning dining, on-site family activities, boat and trolley tours. All of this in an ideal location. Take a short walk down scenic Ocean Avenue to the shops, restaurants and art galleries of Dock Square in one direction and in the other direction are the beaches. If you would rather not walk or drive, the resort offers a complimentary local shuttle to avoid any parking issues in town.

  • I have stayed in many beautiful hotels in my lifetime, but I can honestly say I have never encountered such wonderful staff. Every single person I encountered was so warm and genuine. A big thank you to all of them

    - Virginia D.
  • The Nonantum has been our favorite vacation destination for over twenty years, and we have only met staffers who are polite, friendly, courteous and helpful. Looking forward to our next visit!

    - The Grants
  • “The resort’s customer service is top notch and you can tell that it’s a priority to the owners, the Ginn family. The staff is ample and extraordinary, each member was full of personality and eager to please.”

    - Vanessa Karbowski
  • “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.”

  • Thank you for providing the perfect venue for our event – it could not have been better! The food was delicious, the service absolutely terrific, and the three rooms used were ideal. Special thanks to Ariel who provided the most professional and courteous service throughout the planning and execution of our fundraiser. She was invaluable in helping with every detail, and I hope to have her help again next year.

    - Brad, YCCAC

  • “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 were happy to return this year for our anniversary.”

  • “Great service by everyone and staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. The rooms were excellent, and hotel grounds were superb. Breakfasts were great with a lot of variety. Dinner was fantastic. Great value for what we got for the price. Will definitely want to come back again.”

    - Mark B. (NY)
