Fodor's Expert Review Bufflehead Cove Inn
18 Bufflehead Cove Rd., Kennebunk, Maine, 04043, USA
On the Kennebunk River, this gray-shingled B&B sits at the end of a winding dirt road amid fields and apple trees. Surprisingly, it's only a five-minute drive from Kennebunkport's Dock Square. Guest rooms in the main house are outfitted with a funky mix of antiques and eclectic artworks; most have fireplaces and tidal river views. The Hideaway Suite, with a two-sided gas fireplace, king-size bed, and large whirlpool tub, overlooks the river. There's also a roomy cottage that's set back from the main house. This is a great place to bring your kayak or canoe for paddling trips right from the dock, or to gaze at the river from the expansive wraparound porch.
