Fodor's Expert Review Cape Arundel Inn
208 Ocean Ave., Kennebunkport, Maine, 04046, USA
This shingle-style 19th-century mansion, originally one of the area's many summer "cottages," commands a magnificent ocean view that takes in the Bush estate at Walker's Point. Spacious guest rooms have sitting areas and are furnished with antiques and newer classic pieces; Frette linens and comforters adorn the beds. You can relax on the front porch or by the fireplace. In the adjacent motel-style Rockbound, built in the 1950s, all the rooms have fireplaces and private balconies to take in the views. In the candlelit restaurant, every table has a view of the surf.
- extraordinary views from most rooms
- across the road from rockbound coast
- not for the budget-minded
