With its smart robin’s egg–blue wood paneling and artfully clipped hedges, this 19th-century farmhouse seduces you before you even reach the front door. The look is the handiwork of husband-and-wife team Eric and Liz Brodar, who coaxed the place into the 21st century over a five-month renovation in 2011. They’ve thought of everything: iPod docks, plush bathrobes, light-flooded public areas that feel like a private home thanks to piles of coffee table books and a roaring fire. Guestrooms feel wonderfully private, with comfy Queen or King beds dressed with Frette linens, potbelly fires (in Suites) and views of the manicured gardens. The hearty, creative three-course breakfast includes salmon eggs benedict with lemon arugula sauce, orange-cardamom French toast, sweet apple crumble and more. The big communal table encourages morning chatter, or you can opt to dine at your own private table.
In the Area
You’re on one of Maine’s most picturesque slices of coast (which is why President Bush senior has his summer house here), so you’re spoiled for diversions. Depending on the season, go whale-watching, eat some fresh lobster, hunt for shells on pristine stretches of sand, or just take the 10-minute walk into lovely Kennebunkport for boutiques, eye-opening galleries and impressive eateries, including laid-back Old Vines Wine Bar. No matter what the season, you can walk, snowshoe and even cross-country-ski Kennebunk’s stunning beaches. Three-mile Goose Rocks Beach is particularly scenic.
How to Get There
I work for an office that held a team meeting here. It was a great location with a quiet area, beautiful landscape views and great staff. Food was also very delicious. Would highly recommend for a meeting or for a weekend away!
This was our first visit to Kennebunk. Mixture of business and pleasure. We arrived early to take in the sights and get the lay of the land. Very quaint New England town. We stayed at this Select Registry property. Everything was Great. Kate made us wonderful pancakes with fresh fruit cup. She even gave us the receipt.
Thank you Kate
An overall fantastic place to stay. Romantic, peaceful, quiet, comfortable, and delicious. We arrived a bit late, and the innkeepers were wonderfully accommodating. The Tranquility Suite was perfectly appointed - my wife and I could have have been more pleased. Breakfast is deliciously handmade and served in 3 courses, and the owners were very attentive to our food allergies. Location was ideal - a short stroll to the heart of downtown Kennebunkport, with none of the noise. Do not miss the cookies baked every afternoon - they are wonderful.
We had a wonderful quintessentially New England stay in Kennebunkport and the Inn at English Meadows really made it.
It’s a beautiful building and inside it’s as cosy as it looks outside. It’s located perfectly just a short walk from the pretty little town of Kennebunkport, and as per other reviews - the breakfasts are out of this world
Myself and a business partner stayed at this Inn for a business trip for the weekend. I wanted to start by saying that their prompt responses to my emails were exceptional. From the beginning that made us feel valued. The inn is so cozy, refreshing and relaxing. Let me list the things that were worth the stay:
most comfortable bed Evvveeerrrrrrrr!
love the robe and slippers
healthy in room snacks
the most adorable fireplace kept us nice and warm at night
Love the bath products
The breakfast was so tasty and always hit the right spot in the morning (miss that orange juice!)
Those baked cookies...OMG!
Last but not least...Kate and Dave (owners) were truly amazing and sweet.
Thanks for a great weekend!
