Hotel Review: Yachtsman Hotel & Marina Club
Today marks the first official day of summer, and what better way to kick off the season than with a review of our recent stay at The Yachtsman Hotel & Marina Club.
This place literally screams summer fun, from the bright colors and bold patterns in their decor, to the Rose welcome, the on-site bar with delicious cocktails and their perfectly appointed rooms each with their own private, waterfront, patio.
If I were to choose a hotel to live in this summer...this would be my pick.
What I love most about this hotel though is how you feel at home as soon as you arrive. There is no agenda here, it's not pretentious and the staff is absolutely wonderful - they are warm & friendly, attentive and offer the perfect amount of conversation.
As soon as you arrive you are welcomed at the front desk with a chilled glass of rose as they explain the property to you and give you a brief tour.
The property consists of 30 waterfront rooms decorated in bright colors with shads of pink, blue and yellow combined with nautical elements like shiplap walls, brass and stripes. Each room boasts a bar area with barstools, couch or cozy oversized chairs, large immaculate spa like bathrooms with beautiful tile and brass finishings as well as a private outdoor space with table and chairs under the awning and adirondak chairs on the lawn overlooking the water. Not to mention the tech friendly elements with USB ports built into the outlets, large flat screen smart tv, air conditioning, mini fridge stocked with goodies and complimentary WiFi.
As a guest you can also enjoy the following amenties:
- Fresh brewed coffee (all day long I might add...)
- Morning pastries & baked goods served at the Marina Bar
- Evening wine hour from 4-5pm (which typically includes a champs or Rose which you know I love)
- Sundown Sessions with a nightly bonfire (perfect for sipping a cocktail or having an evening bite)
- Complimentary bikes to cruise around town
- Complimentary 2 hour paddleboard or SUP rentals
Best part, aside from the above, is their location. With waterfront views and boat access you won't find a better place to take in all the summer feels - plus they are perfectly situated just outside of the heart of Kennebunkport meaning you get some peace and quiet but can easily walk or bike to the heart of the town in less than 5 minutes.
The only bad part about this place is that they took so long to arrive!
I can honestly say there is no other place we would rather stay in Kennebunkport.
Ready to book your stay? Check them out here and make sure to tell them I sent you...you might just be surprised with a little extra something when you arrive.
