Experience relaxed sophistication at the Maine Stay Inn of Kennebunkport, Maine.  With our exceptional hospitality, gourmet breakfast, and incredible attention to detail, your visit to the Southern Maine coast is sure to be a most memorable experience.  Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this Kennebunkport bed and breakfast was once a stately sea captain's home, offering the grace and splendor of a bygone era.  Choose the Victorian romanace of a 19th centry Inn Room or the private intimacy of a romantic Cottage Suite, situated surrounding nearly two acres of expansive lawns and peaceful gardens. 

The former home of Captain Melville Walker, the inn has been beautifully resotred to its original splendor while offering today's comforts to guests.  Each of the 17 unique accommodations are exquisitely and tastefully decorated, offering private baths, wireless internet, air conditioning, flat panel televisions and DVD.  Some boast glowing gas fireplaces and double whirlpool tubs.  Contemporary and classic New England Cottage suites and our Two-Bedroom Family Cottage offer flexibility for families traveling together or discerning travelers requiring separate beds.  Some accommodations feature contemporary styling, while others offer more traditional decor, appealing to a wide array of tastes. 

Awaken each morning to a full gourmet breakfast served in the dining room or wraparound porch, or have yours delivered to your private cottage suite for breakfast in bed.   After a day of exploring, return to the inn for afternoon tea and sweets with innkeepers and other guests on our front porch, or, during cooler months, by the living room fire.

Whether your are searching for a romantic getaway, beach vacation, or family retreat, the Maine Stay Inn is the perfect choice!  Welcome to Kennebunkport!

Eggs Hong Kong

This beautiful breakfast or brunch entree is shaped like a flower and has excellent presentation sure to wow any crowd!


We prefer to serve this with ice cold milk, but yogurt is a fine substitute to make a hearty breakfast instead of a tasty side!
