The Breakwater Inn & Spa is an ideal retreat for visitors seeking a quiet getaway to Kennebunkport, Maine. This hotel – originally built in the 1880s – showcases the area's serene surroundings from its perch along the Kennebunkport River. (Guests considering a stay here should note that, because of the hotel's older roots, there is no elevator in the inn building, but there is an elevator in the spa building.) Rooms and suites are outfitted in nautical sky blue, rich navy and stark white hues and feature pillow-top beds, and free wireless internet access. Also complimentary: The use of the hotel's bikes. If you'd rather stay on-site, work up a sweat at the fitness studio and follow it up with a treatment like a facial, massage or manicure at the spa. Once you're ready for some food, Stripers Waterside Restaurant serves up savory seafood dishes with sunset views. (Note: The restaurant is open on a limited schedule in the offseason.)

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure


The Breakwater Inn’s signature restaurant, named for striped bass, specializes in local Atlantic seafood, and offers views of the Atlantic Ocean and Kennebunk River.


Like many other Maine inns and hotels, it tends to die down during the winter (even the restaurant is closed), so best to stay here between May and August.
