Originally built in 1895 as a summer home for a wealthy Ohio family, Seacrest was converted to a seasonal inn in 1953. The most charming 19th architectural details remain in the lobby and sitting areas while all of the guest rooms have been thoroughly and tastefully updated. The ocean views from Seacrest are some of the best in Kennebunkport and the sweeping front porch is the perfect place to enjoy them. Adjacent to Seacrest are bungalows and a loft space to give you an inspiring array of lodging options.
Ocean View Bungalow
To the right of the Seacrest Main Inn Building as you’re facing the inn, lies a row of oversized bungalows each with its own balcony for admiring the surf and stars. Ideal for couples on vacation, all our spacious Ocean View Bungalows have king-size beds topped with a pillow-cushion mattress, synthetic-down comforters, Frette linens, hardwood floors, gas fireplaces and wet bars.
Don’t let the name fool you, there’s nothing “junior” about this suite which we suspect was a children’s playroom when Seacrest was a private summer home. Turret-style windows maximize the ocean view and a gas burning fireplace adds beautiful ambience on cooler nights. At your request, we’ll have the large soaking tub ready for you to enjoy after a busy day of exploring.
Our largest room in Seacrest is also the only room with its own private balcony. Located on the second floor, Ocean Suite has the best ocean views in the house, if not all of Kennebunkport. The deep soaking tub offers a soothing treat after a day of sightseeing, and we would be happy to draw a hot bath for you.
Seacrest King Ocean View
The only thing better than a great night’s sleep in a luxurious king-size bed is waking up to a beautiful view of the ocean in a thoughtfully designed, beautifully appointed room. Each of these spacious rooms has its own personality but all are perfect for romantic getaways that turn stress and responsibilities into distant memories.
Seacrest Queen Ocean View
With large windows on either side of the queen-size bed and an elegant stain-glass window above the headboard, this one-of-a-kind room is dollhouse-perfect. The cozy atmosphere is further enhanced by a beautiful marble bathroom so you can escape the world in total privacy.
Seacrest King Garden View
Larger than most of our King Ocean View rooms, our Seacrest King Garden View room is an elegant space with breathtaking views of our immaculately cared for lawn and perennial gardens. A large gas fireplace anchors the room that’s filled with natural light all day long.
Ocean Bluff Suite
Our Ocean Bluff loft is a private hideaway that’s made for romantic escapes. Located just steps from Seacrest, a flight of stairs leads you to a dream-like room with high, angled ceilings and an in-wall fireplace. In addition to a king-size bed, sitting area and reading nook, Ocean Bluff has its own private deck with magnificent ocean views.
