Overview

Award-winning on-site restaurant and well-appointed accommodations
There is a daily resort fee of $35
Situated about a half-mile southwest of Dock Square, the White Barn Inn & Spa serves as a convenient place to hang your hat if you're looking to explore the heart of Kennebunkport. The inn's AAA Five Diamond Award-winning restaurant is one of the most popular establishments downtown, thanks to its upscale iterations of cod, halibut and lobster roll (all fresh daily catches, of course). The inn also offers private cooking classes available for budding culinary artists. Keep in mind that there are several accommodation choices to pick from: The Main House, the garden and the waterfront cottages. Recent guests especially appreciate the extra perks found in each guest room, like marble bathrooms with heated floors and whirlpool tubs and walk-in rainfall showers. Visitors also appreciate the accommodating staff and the surprisingly quiet locale on Kennebunkport River.

The waterfront cottages are quite a trek from the main building, so make sure you book a guestroom instead if you want to be closer to the property’s great amenities.
