In Kennebunkport, Maine
The 1802 House Bed and Breakfast Inn is a historic, independent property in the beautiful seaside town of Kennebunkport Maine.

At the same time, the inn is just a short .7 mile walk to the popular Dock Square village center with its galleries, shops and restaurants. The inn also sits along the 15th fairway of the historic Cape Arundel Golf Course, making the 1802 Bed and Breakfast Inn an ideal location for golfers.
The six beautiful guest rooms offer true comfort and modern amenities such as fireplaces, flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, premium bedding, plush robes, deluxe toiletries and much more.
A freshly prepared three-course gourmet breakfast made with local and organic ingredients is included each morning for guests, served in the spacious dining room. There is plenty of indoor common space offering comfortable spaces for relaxing…and there is also lovely gardens and outdoor seating for guests to enjoy.

TripAdvisor Rating of #1 of 11 B&Bs in Kennebunkport!
Kennebunkport is a very popular tourist destination along Maine’s beautiful southern coast.
Accessible by car, train, bus and air from many locations, this artsy seaside town attracts visitors all year long.
The summer season offers plenty of outdoor activities, from sailing & hiking to whale watching tours and lazy days on the beach. But this crowd-pleasing spot also hosts an array of winter events (Christmas Prelude, Paint The Town Red)
…and most galleries, shops and restaurants are open all year!
The inn is located:
- 1.5 hours from Boston
- 1/2 hour from Portland
- 2 hours from Camden

Directions from South of 95:
Take 95 N into the state of Maine…to the Wells/Kennebunk area. Take exit 9B to Rt. 1 North, to Rt 9 that leads directly into Kennebunkport.
Directions from Portland:
From the Portland JetPort, follow Rt 1 S about 15 miles to Rt 9 that leads directly into Kennebunkport.
The inn is located just about a half mile to Dock Square on foot by way of Oak Street. The inn backs to the Cape Arundel Golf Course, so guests get the best of both worlds, quiet and set back in a residential neighborhood, but just a short stroll to the heart of town.
Owner’s Quarters (OQ)
The owner’s two story wing of the house was built in the 90s, in a design to match seamlessly with the historic section of the house. This offers a large living room with gas fireplace, dining room with gas fireplace, powder room, wet bar with cherry cabinets and granite and a small screened porch.
Upstairs is a guest bedroom with ensuite bath and a master bedroom with gas fireplace and dressing area with custom built in cabinetry. The bath has a double vanity, jetted tub and large walk-in tile shower. There are two other areas currently used for storage/workout equipment. And there is another partially finished space which could be another private OQ room or converted to a large guest suite, and by combining two smaller guest rooms, you could still keep the 6 maximum allowable guest rooms, but nearly all suites in that scenario.
The only kitchen is situated in the middle of the two wings. Off the kitchen is a convenient office with windows facing the parking lot, also a nice feature. The owner’s wing has private access from the parking lot as well as the walkout basement level. In terms of OQ, this much space is not common!
