To be honest, staying at the Wharf House Annex was not good and nowhere near the value at $500 per night. Yes, I know its Kennebunkport in August, but the same owners at Kennebunkport Inn charge about the same and its much better, which is strange cause its the same owners. Someday I'll try again at the property hotel.

We loved this hotel's location, and the restaurant associated with it was EXCELLENT. We were disappointed by our room, however, which we did not know would be in a detached, somewhat run-down building across the parking lot with absolutely no view (except of the roof-top HVAC unit humming outside).

In the heart of Kennebunkport

Pros: The views of the harbor from our room were fabulous. We enjoyed a glass of wine on our private balcony and had a nightcap in the little hotel bar.
Cons: The rooms are very small but clean and well-appointed. The front desk staff were not very friendly. A bit gruff.
Location: Kennebunkport is the definition of quaint. Lots of little one-of- a- kind shops. Drive along the sea shore. Portland is nearby.
We chose this hotel for our 48th Anniversary and it was lovely. Midweek October is a wonderful time to experience Maine. Everything is still open but the tourists are gone. Kennebunkport is a walking town and we were able to enjoy the little shops and restaurants in and around the village.
