Family Friendly Resort in Maine

Times change, but the traditional family vacation is alive and well at The Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine. Our ability to evolve with our guests’ preferences is a big reason why Yankee Magazine named us one of the best family resorts in New England. With a wide range of activities for every member of your family, we’re here to help you find the perfect balance of family time, play time and quiet time.

Our activities program will be open daily starting June 18th, ending on September 7th (Labor Day).

When you want to spend time as a family, our property is filled with places to explore during the day plus sing-alongs and s’mores at our nightly campfire. We also have all kinds of free lawn games to play and a fleet of kayaks, stand up paddle boards and beach cruiser bikes that you can rent by the hour.
