Welcome to Kennebunk & Kennebunkport, Maine and the Inn at English Meadows
Set in a newly renovated 1860s Greek Revival style farm home in Kennebunk’s Lower Village, just an 8-minute walk to Dock Square in Kennebunkport and only a mile from Kennebunk’s beautiful sandy beaches, The Inn at English Meadows is the perfect southern Maine getaway. Offering luxurious lodging, this Kennebunk bed and breakfast is a unique combination of modern furniture and fixtures paired with impeccably maintained original moldings and wide plank floors.
The Inn at English Meadows offers two graciously decorated fireplaced common rooms, where guests may enjoy the solitude of an early morning cup of coffee, or gather later in the day a glass of wine before dinner. The eleven guest rooms and suites and private bungalow cottage exhibit the modern style of the Inn. Elegant amenities, including Frette fine linens, bath robes, slippers and towels; toiletries by Malin+Goetz; and the coziest mattresses by Vera Wang, await each guest. A variety of special touches are offered, such as complimentary WiFi, alarm clocks with USB ports for phone charging, flat-screen TVs, and Nespresso machines and fireplaces in some rooms. Another highlight of your stay will be innkeeper Elizabeth’s three-course freshly prepared gourmet breakfasts and homemade baked goods.
After exploring the shops in Kennebunkport or nearby Portland, visiting the area’s scenic lighthouses, or relaxing at the beach, enjoy the comfort of the Inn’s patio, or lounge in Adirondack chairs or around our fire table amid beautifully landscaped English gardens with a bottle of wine, a local craft beer or a special cocktail. During the fall and winter months, take in the incredible scenery with a beach walk or a hike through any of several nearby conservation areas, enjoy the romance of a private sleigh ride through the woods and fields of Kennebunkport, luxuriate in a couples massage at a nearby spa, and finish your day with a cozy evening by the fire.
If you’re looking for celebrations and festivals, the Kennebunks provide ample opportunities year round! Celebrate the winter holidays during the annual two-week Christmas Prelude festival, or February’s month-long Paint the Town Red celebration. Be part of an exclusive spring celebration sponsored by the Historic Inns of Kennebunkport: “Art at the Inns,” the weekend of May 18, 2019. Usher in the arrival of summer the first week of June with fine food, fine wine and fine art at the Kennebunkport Festival in June.
With beautiful sandy beaches, a wide variety of unique shops, galleries and maritime activities, and SO many wonderful restaurants — all within walking distance or a short drive of the inn, you’ll want to stay several nights (and, as many of our guests do, return to the Inn again and again) to be able experience as many of them as possible! No matter what brings you to southern Maine, The Inn at English Meadows is the perfect place to call home.
