About the Inn

Maine Stay Inn has welcomed guests to Kennebunkport, Maine since 1946. Our bed and breakfast is the perfect choice for a romantic weekend getaway.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Melville Walker House, this luxury inn 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. Each guest room has its own private en-suite bath, and daily housekeeping is included in the nightly rate.

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

Warmth and hospitality greet you from the time you enter the front door, and concierge and front desk services are available 24 hours a day.
