About the Inn

Mainestay Inn has welcomed guests to Kennebunkport since 1946 and is the perfect choice for a romantic weekend getaway.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Melville Walker House, this luxury bed and breakfast was once a stately sea captain’s home.

Modern Amenities

While the home retains the grace and splendor of a bygone era, the comforts of modern life are tastefully present in each of our guest quarters.

Every room offers comfortable beds with luxurious linens, white fluffy towels, and private baths. Guests will also find flat screen cable televisions, DVD players, complimentary wireless internet access, hair dryers, wine openers, and wine glasses in their rooms. Some rooms feature fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, kitchens or breakfast rooms.

All are air conditioned in the summer, during which time we provide beach towels, umbrellas, and chairs to our guests. We also have a bicycle rack, off-street parking, restaurant directory, and complimentary movies to borrow from our personal collection.
