A Waterfront Family Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine

Welcome to The Nonantum Resort! Located on Ocean Avenue within walking distance of shops, restaurants and Colony Beach, our family resort has been a trusted Maine vacation destination for over a century. Thanks to our dedicated staff, life is more comfortable here. We have everything you need for an unforgettable escape, and if peace and privacy are all you require, we’re happy to offer that too.

Relax. Recharge. Reconnect.

Our historic family resort in Kennebunkport is perched along a bend in the Kennebunk River where lobster boats are moored between trips out to sea and recreational water craft glide by throughout the day. Kick back in one of our Adirondack chairs to take in the gorgeous water views or stroll along our expansive property that includes a private dock and beach. We have plenty of on-site activities for every member of your family and our swimming pool is the perfect place to relax together and make new friends. When you’re ready to explore the nearby Kennebunkport attractions, we are a short walk to Dock Square. We also offer a free shuttle to nearby points of interest, which runs seasonally from June-Labor Day.
