A stay at The Inn at English Meadows will have you feeling like you’ve been transported to a colorful English garden. This sweet Kennebunk bed and breakfast is centrally located along the main road and is only steps away from everything that the town has to offer.
Rooms with names like “Morning Dawn,” “Beach Walk,” and “Sea Glass” give the Inn at English Meadows a feeling of serenity and calm.
There are 11 rooms total rooms and one private bungalow, which is perfect for couples or families looking for privacy while still enjoying everything that the inn has to offer. Guests with furry friends will be pleased to note that this bed and breakfast offers pet-friendly lodging in select guest rooms.
The quiet rooms are tastefully decorated with splashes of pastel colors and plenty of soft natural light. Many rooms also feature fireplaces (perfect for cuddling up during chilly winters!) as well as delicious freshly-baked cookies that await guests every afternoon.
Each accommodation is stocked with simple yet elegant touches: freshen up with toiletries by Malin+Goetz, brew a cup of morning coffee on the Nespresso machines, or simply relax and sleep just a few more minutes on the plush bedding from Vera Wang — you’re on vacation, after all!
However, don’t oversleep and miss Innkeeper Elizabeth’s breakfast. Her three-course gourmet breakfast is one of the most raved-about things at the Inn and a guest favorite. Using locally-sourced and fresh ingredients, Elizabeth creates tasty creations every morning.
Guests can choose if they want to enjoy a cup of specially-made English Meadows Blend coffee with a scone, scrambled eggs with goat cheese, or pancakes topped with local Maine maple syrup at one of the two beautifully decorated dining rooms, or al fresco in the garden patio.
Once you’ve enjoyed your hearty breakfast and are ready to start the day, it’s time to explore Kennebunkport. This little coastal town has big New England charm thanks to its gorgeous beaches and inviting marinas. Do a bit of celebrity spotting in downtown, or head towards Ocean Avenue to marvel at the picturesque old captain’s homes. Those who want to buy traditional Maine souvenirs shouldn’t miss Dock Square, which is known for its local artisan stores, colorful shingle houses, and delightful boutiques.
When you’ve worked up an appetite, do as the locals and enjoy some fresh seafood from The Clam Shack. A quintessential Maine lobster shack, this spot is purported to have the best lobster roll in New England. Other local favorites include Earth at Hidden Pond, Alissons, and Old Vines Wine Bar. For the ultimate in fine dining, make a reservation at the White Barn, which is one of New England’s only five star and five diamond restaurants.
How could we forget about Kennebunkport’s famous beaches? Travelers can enjoy the warm ocean breeze and hunt for Maine’s famous lighthouses at one of the many beaches in the area. We recommend Goose Rocks Beach to start, Kennebunk Beach who want to play by the sea all day, and Colony Beach to watch picture-perfect sunsets.
Kennebunkport’s motto calls the town “the place to be all year,” and it’s true: You’ll want to come back time and time again — especially after a stay at the Inn at English Meadows.
