    A GREAT Bed and Breakfast in Kennebunkport

    by

    There are plenty of inns/B&Bs in the Kennebunkport area. I'm sure that most of them will be memorable.

    But, speaking about Mary Ellen and Edric Mason's 1802 Inn, I can only tell you that it is THE perfect retreat. My wife and I chose to stay at 1802 for a long weekend, celebrating our 23rd anniversary. The inn was a perfect balance between meeting and enjoying fellow traveller AND the opportunity for some serious privacy. Both needs were met in abundance at 1802.

    This place deserves more than just "tip" status. Please see the separate travelogue that I'm publishing about the 1802 Inn. As great as everything else in Kennebunkport appears to be, I'd NEVER stay anywhere other than the 1802 after this visit. It was perfect.

    Unique Quality: Great location

    Quiet and private neighborhood

    THE BEST innkeepers I've ever met. Mary Ellen and Edric Mason were born to run this B&B. It's clear that they love what they do, and they love meeting and making you happy.

    The breakfasts are truly remarkable. The food is excellent (nice work, Mary Ellen), and the conversation with the other guests at the large breakfast table is very enjoyable. And, nothing says good morning any nicer than Edric's smiling face as he pours you a glass of freshly squeezed orange or apricot juice.

    NOTE ABOUT THE PRICE.... Bonnie and I stayed in the Sebago Suite, which is the 1802's nicest room(s). It's a series of 3 room, a bedroom, a sitting room with fireplace and a Roman tub spa room. There's also a private deck off the spa. The price per person that I list covers the Sebago. The 1802's smallest rooms are still lovely, and at $140 or so a night per double, they're a true bargain.

    If you contact the website, you can see all the rooms. My advice is to get the Sebago is it's available and within your budget. If not, the next best room in the place is, to me, the Arundel room suite downstairs. For smaller rooms, we liked the Berkshire the best....it has a lovely bay window overlooking the backyard flower garden.

    PLEASE, IF YOU GO TO 1802, TELL EDRIC AND MARY ELLEN THAT PETE AND BONNIE FROM TALLAHASSEE SAID HELLO.

    Directions: Drive through K'bunkport and Dock Square. (on Western Avenue) When it dead ends on "Maine St.", turn left. You'll go around a curve turning right. About 3/4 mile down the road, turn left on Locke Street. (There's an 1802 Inn sign posted at Locke Street)
