    One of the best places in Kennebunkport

    by

    Classy is the way to describe the White Barn Inn. The inn prides itself on the degree of pampering that it gives to its customers.

    We did not actually stay at this inn, but I have discussed the White Barn with people we met in Kennebunkport who have stayed there. The tip is based on those conversations. And, my wife and I did enjoy a Sunday dinner at the White Barn, which was spectacular. (see restaurant tip)

    Unique Quality: Although reasonably close to Kennebunkport and the Lower Village of Kennebunk, the White Barn is nonetheless not right in the middle of a tourist area. Its location is quiet and shady.

    Most of the rooms have nice wood burning fireplaces. The inn also offers turn-down service, robes, and fresh flowers in the rooms on a daily basis.

    Upon checking in, you'll be taken to a parlor and given a brandy while the uniformed valets park your car and gather your luggage, transporting it to your room.

    It's just a very, very nice place.

    Directions: From Kennebunkport, drive south on Western Avenue to the point it intersects Beach Street. Turn left. Go about 1/2 mile, around a curve (monastery over on the left)...just a bit more, inn is on the right.

BEST place to eat in a town full of great places

by pchamlis about The White Barn Inn

The word that one would associate with the "White Barn Inn" is pamper. This is one of the best restaurants in the northeastern United States, and the service is impeccable.

Numerous guidebooks all said things like "a meal to remember" and such. This is absolutely true.

I read some negative press indicating that the service was too obstrusive, and that people would feel overwhelmed. This is absolutely not true. The waiters and staff, including the cashiers, parking valets and managers, are all very personable and seem TRULY concerned that you enjoy every aspect of your evening. We did.

Dinner at the White Barn is basically a fixed-price affair. You can choose between four and six course offerings. You do have a choice in each category.....entree, appetizers, intermezzo, dessert, etc. Another very nice choice is to ask for suggested wine pairings for each course. This is always an outstanding enhancement for an already top-notch meal.

Note, gentlemen are requested to wear a jacket, although a tie is optional. We both had the four course dinner, priced at $80 per person. We added the paired wines option, at an additional $32 per person. Added to the 2 glasses of $26 per GLASS champagne, and we DID run up a bill. It's hard to say that a meal that ended up costing $295 for two people, not including tip, is worth the money. But folks, if ANY meal is worth $295, this one was. Like the books say, it was a night to remember...one of the best meals of my life.

We had:
Appetizer
Lobster spring roll with daikon (my wife's)
Diver-harvested bay scallops, pan-seared (me)

Intermezzo
We both had the butternut squash-apple soup. EXSQUISITE.

Entree
Pan-seared Atlantic salmon and wasabi-mashed potatoes (my wife)
Veal medallions and creamy polenta, with wild local mushrooms and sauce (me)

Dessert
An incredibly rich chocolate and creme mousse with liquer (my wife)
Raspberry souffle with heavy cream and fresh berries (me)

The wines that they suggested (in each case, we had a couple of choices) perfectly complimented and enhanced our experience.

Again, if ANY meal for two was worth $295, this one was.
