Family Friendly Resort in Maine

Family Activities Program Schedule
(June – September)

For more than 130 years the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine has been known as the family resort in southern Maine. In fact, Yankee Magazine featured our resort as one of the best family resorts in New England in 2018. Families from across the nation and many other countries have come to stay with us to build life long memories. Maine truly is Vacationland, and the Nonantum Resort has something for every member of your family. Families can enjoy many of the options below and don’t miss out on our special pop up events throughout the summer.

Family activities abound at The Nonantum Resort! Reconnect with your kids and make Maine memories on your family vacation here. Join in crafting, crabbing, cooking demo’s and more! We’ve got the whole gang covered – from the kiddos to the grandparents. Everyone will enjoy our family campfires, sing-along’s and s’mores under the stars. Plus boat tours departing right from our marina, and trolley tours departing right from our doorstep. Scenic strolls and nearby beaches make great family vacation excursions. Relax and unwind with chair massages under the gazebo, morning waterfront yoga, and more. In the evenings, let us keep the kids entertained while you enjoy a nice dinner in 95 Ocean.

Some favorite activities include kids crabbing and princess and pirate night. While crabbing, kids will go with a staff member onto the Nonantum docks and pull up the crab pots and actually get to play with the sea creatures while learning a little bit about the Maine ocean and other marine life. The princess and pirates night lets kids dress up in princess and pirate costumes while they have a scavenger hunt around the resort looking for “buried treasure”.
