Everything You Need to Know About Kennebunkport, Maine

Your time on the Maine coast is precious, and when you stay at the Cape Arundel Inn & Resort, you’ll seldom need to venture more than five or ten miles from home base to experience the sights, tastes and adventures that have filled your vacation dreams. The dancing waters of the Atlantic are at our front doorstep. Kennebunkport’s vibrant Dock Square is two miles away. So is Cape Porpoise, an authentic fishing village where you can watch lobstermen at work and dine with a lighthouse in view.

From clam shacks to world-class restaurants, beaches to bucolic farms, historic attractions to hip contemporary art galleries, shoreline walking trails to yoga studios, it’s all here. Postcard scenes greet you at every turn. Days drift by at an easy, yet exhilarating pace. Kennebunkport has achieved that rare equilibrium between laid-back and sophisticated.

It thrills us to welcome new visitors to our seaside community. And if you’ve been to Kennebunkport before, we invite you to return. These annual events are the perfect excuse to plan a trip!
