How to Get There
Place changed hands a year ago and is not what others in the past had experienced. Our room, #41, was non descript. Bed was fine, shower was fine and there was storage including a closet. Unlike other B&Bs, it had no personality or distinction - the same as middle-of-the-road chain rooms.
The breakfast was "continental" with nothing but a limited amount of cold items. Even the small pieces of sweets were cold. Breakfasts at Hampton Inn, Hilton Garden Inn, Fairfield Inn and Spring Hill Suites had more items. One morning the woman in charge of the breakfasts was coughing extensively and then handling the food without gloves! It was awful. We reported it to the desk and the woman was not there the next morning.
There was limited parking at night because the restaurant next door, which has the same owner as the Inn, was using it.
We would not go back and do not recommend it to others.
My husband and I got a chance to get away for the weekend recently and found this Inn on-line. The lnn itself is cute, clean and updated. But our room was very small. The bed took up the whole room and it was probably a full. I thought maybe a queen, my husband said no way. Bed was comfy, bathroom was nice and updated. But no amenities - shared fridge, no place to get water, etc. All of the staff were lovely and friendly and helpful. The morning breakfast buffet was limited but sufficient to start your day. Dining room was nice. The parking is super tight. One night I had to squeeze out of my car and leave a note on the cars next to me with our cell # because there was no way they could get into their vehicles in the a.m. While the property is on the water, it is essentially a little pond and where the tables and chairs are for outside seating includes a view of the back of Mabel's Lobster Claw Restaurant (which was delicious by the way) and the ice cream store next to it. But it was nice to sit out there with a glass of wine while waiting for a table at Mabel's. They did have bikes and kyaks available for use. All in all very nice. Three stars are for the price. Over $400 for a tiny room, tight parking and really little to no amenities.
The Edgewater was a fantastic choice for our quick trip to Kennebunkport. Staff was so friendly and made some great recommendations. Room 50 was perfect, I only wish we had stayed longer. Even though the main drag of Kennebunkport does get quiet later in the evening I am still glad we stayed off the beaten path slightly. We would love to return someday.
