Cape Arundel Inn and Resort is the only oceanfront inn and resort in Kennebunkport, and surely one of the most visually appealing. Set on a cape overlooking the Atlantic, with green lawns, flower gardens, white verandas, and classic Maine cottage décor, the only dilemma you’ll face is where to look first: out at the ocean, or around your storybook-pretty room.Ocean serves delicious food: poached lobster with passion fruit butter, wildflower honey-brined pork. The Old Fort Estate—part of the resort, a short drive away—offers the perfect summer afternoon setup: a lap pool, a library, a billiards room, and a full bar. Some of our favorite spots at the Inn:
A perfect ocean-viewing spot.
Summer flowers between the cottages.
The veranda: breakfast here, or have an end-of-day drink, or watch the light on the water.
Each room is different: book this one for a fireplace-cozy feel and sunlight filtered by trees.
In a quiet neighborhood of summer mansions, the inn is near Dock Square and many beaches: just ask the staff and they’ll set you up for the day with towels, chairs, and beach passes.
