We are one of the best “celebration vacation” inns in the country

Kennebunkport, ME– Cabot Cove Cottages was selected by BedandBreakfast.com editors as one of the best inns in the country for celebrating love.
According to editors of BedandBreakfast.com, a June 2008 survey conducted by Peter Yesawich’s Y Partnership, found that 70% of respondents celebrated a special occasion with a vacation, while 75% vacationed in celebration of their honeymoon or a significant anniversary. Similarly, a May 2009 survey compiled by hotels.com, found that honeymooners are not cutting back, despite the recession; its survey of 500 brides-to-be found that 98% are still planning to honeymoon after their wedding.
This makes the honor of being chosen as one of the best “celebration vacation” inns in the country a particular tribute to Cabot Cove Cottages.

“Cabot Cove Cottages was singled out by one or more of the BedandBreakfast.com editors and associates as being a romantic destination enhanced by its pampering amenities, quality d├ęcor, hospitality, and cuisine,” stated Sandy Soule, Editor of BedandBreakfast.com and one of the most highly recognized authors in the B&B industry. “For those seeking beautifully decorated seaside cottages in Kennebunkport visit Cabot Cove Cottages,” Soule stated.

“We are delighted to have been chosen and proud to be in such good company on BedandBreakfast.com’s list of great places for celebrating love,” stated Terri Kenny, Innkeeper. “It is gratifying to be recognized among the top inns in the United States for honeymoon and anniversary getaways. We believe that our recreation-rich location, our romantic amenities, and our attention to guest satisfaction contributed to our being selected by BedandBreakfast.com’s editors,” explained Terri.

The Cottages at Cabot Cove, an enclave of 16 new and unique cottages in Kennebunkport, Maine, all nestled in an idyllic tidal cove-side setting perfect for a romantic escape. “Cottage” – one little word that says so much… evoking sweet memories of summers past, contentment, and a simpler way of life. Each of our intimate cottages has its own charm and personality; each beautifully decorated by a different interior designer.

Cabot Cove Cottages- This weekend




First, I would like to say that "Mud Season" is over- I am not sure if we really had a mud season this year. I usually judge this by my driveway, and I am happy to say the drive is clear and my car didn't get stuck as in years past.

We are doing a soft opening this weekend, and have invited industry professionals from Quality Control Mangers and Front Desk Managers, housekeeping supervisors, and avid travelers to get feedback to ensure we continue to excel in guest expectations and experience.

Some areas that will be looked at are:

Breakfast offerings

Amenities and Furnishings in each cottage

Ease of access in each cottage

Each ceiling fan, bathroom fan and heater, will be checked for noise level and performance so we can offer you, our guests an exceptional accommodation.

We are really looking forward to this weekend and prepping for our Season opener on May 1.
