Accommodations

The King's Port Inn is SOLD OUT! Additional hotel options to check out are The Port Inn (Kennebunk), The Hampton Inn (Kennebunk), and Holiday Inn Express (Biddeford)

If hotel accommodations are needed, I highly recommend The King’s Port Inn in lower village Kennebunk. The Inn is just steps from Kennebunkport’s town center – Dock Square. I had the pleasure of helping the wonderful owners with the Inn’s landscape. The property is only 3.5 miles from the Brick Store Museum.
