Historic Federal-style inn honors its past in its architecture, ambience

The golden age of Maine’s maritime history is still celebrated at the Kennebunkport Inn, perched in the heart of this bustling village. The inn, which features 35 luxurious guest rooms, was for generations a home to the Perkins family, famous for being successful merchants and sea captains. In 1899, the home was purchased, and torn down, by coffee and tea merchant Burleigh S. Thompson, who transformed it into the lovely Federal-style house it still is today. Design updates have repeated the historic architecture while adding contemporary flair, meaning rooms still offer classic luxury, period style and a heritage of warm ambience. Select rooms and suites have gas fireplaces, four-poster beds and views of Dock Square and the Kennebunk River.
