Welcome to the Cape Arundel Inn! Built in 1895, this historic bed and breakfast is the only oceanfront inn and restaurant in Kennebunkport, Maine offering a one hundred and eighty degree view of the Atlantic Ocean. Twelve of our fourteen rooms feature incredible ocean views with seven having balconies overlooking the crashing surf and glorious blue sea.
The Cape Arundel Inn is a boutique hotel property unique to Maine. Situated in a quiet neighborhood of grand and stately summer mansions on Ocean Avenue, the “gold coast” of Kennebunkport, this romantic inn is just a five minute drive from the center of Kennebunkport’s ‘Dock Square’ and the Lower Village of Kennebunk. To enhance the guest experience, the Cape Arundel Inn joined with sister property, Old Fort Inn & Resort, just a short walk away. Old Fort Inn’s spacious patio and heated lap pool, as well as their full bar and Club Lounge, are available for guests. Whether you are seeking an adventurous getaway, a weekend of relaxation, or a unique setting to celebrate a wedding, honeymoon, anniversary, or other special occasion, the Cape Arundel Inn and Old Fort Inn & Resort are lovely spots for all.
The Inn is ideal for those who want to wake up to a beautiful early morning sunrise overlooking the Atlantic. Guests can enjoy coffee or tea on the front porch before a delicious breakfast in the only oceanfront dining room in Kennebunkport. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff gladly offer recommendations to guests and will help arrange activities and set up reservations. Some top suggestions are to explore the quintessential seaside village of Kennebunkport, walk to nearby Colony Beach or Walker’s Point, soak up the scenery at the Kennebunk beaches or Goose Rocks Beach, view Kennebunkport’s beautiful, protected harbor by kayak, or simply settle with a book in an Adirondack chair set among our oceanfront gardens.
In the evening, enjoy our front porch while relaxing with friends with a glass of wine from our outstanding wine list, followed by a wonderful dining experience at Ocean, prepared by Chef Pierre Gignac. Ocean offers fine cuisine inspired by southern French and Mediterranean flavors, enhanced by stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean.
From the one-of-a-kind location to the exceptional level of service, we believe your experience at the Cape Arundel Inn will be one to remember for years to come.
