Breakwater Inn & Spa
At the point where the Kennebunk River spills into the Atlantic Ocean sits the Breakwater Inn & Spa, a charming and intimate hotel. One of the Port’s oldest inns, the original 1880’s Maine cottage architecture evokes the soothing tranquility of a bygone era—blending the intimacy of a coastal bed and breakfast with all the amenities of a luxury boutique hotel. The Inn rooms combine classic nautical elegance and water views with modern comfort. The Spa rooms overlook the Kennebunk River and offer easy access to the Breakwater Spa, a sanctuary designed to soothe the spirit. The spacious River Top Cottage features a deep soaking whirlpool and views of yachts and boats as they glide out to sea. And the on-site dining, Stripers Waterside Restaurant—lauded as one of the best seafood dining experiences in Maine—is a favorite of guests and Kennebunkport residents alike.
