Our luxurious & modern Lower Village Kennebunk inn is a short walk from Kennebunkport’s Dock Square.  The Inn at English Meadows is dedicated to the comfort of all its guests and the following policies were designed to ensure an enjoyable stay.  Policies are subject to change as required.


Reservation Payment: A 50% deposit of the total charge is required to secure accommodations at our Kennebunk boutique hotel. For a one-night stay the entire charge is due at the time of booking. Balance due on arrival.  Please advise if a different credit card will be used.

Forms of Payment: American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, and cash.

Check-In/Out Policy:

Check-in time is from 4:00 – 6:00 PM. Please enter through our main house front entrance. Early check-in is generally not an option as the hours just prior to check-in is the only time available to the innkeeper for appointments and errands.

As a small boutique property and historic home, we do not have front desk staff or space for storing luggage. If you arrive early, you may find that no one is on site to greet you or answer questions. However, you are most welcome to park in our driveway, pick up a map from our front entry table and explore the area until check-in time. The Inn does not have public restrooms.

Please call the Inn at (207) 967-5766 if you are delayed en route so we can confirm that we will be here when you arrive or make other arrangements.

Check-out is by 11:00 AM. A $50 fee will be charged for late check-out.

Additional Guests: All rates are double occupancy. We can accommodate additional guests in some rooms for a fee of $50 per night per person; please inquire before making your reservation. If an air mattress or cot is used, there will also be a one-time fee of $25.

Minimum Stay Requirements: Reservations require a three-night minimum for major holidays; two-night minimum is required July through October, and most other weekends. If availability allows, a one night stay may be arranged, please call.

Cancellations: The Inn at English Meadows is a small Kennebunk boutique hotel. Therefore, we are significantly affected by cancellations and must adhere to a strict cancellation policy. For cancellations made more than 14 days before your scheduled arrival date your deposit will be refunded, less a $50 processing fee. For cancellations made 14 days or less prior to your arrival date you will be responsible for the full reservation unless we are able to re-book the room, in which case, only the cancellation fee will be charged. We require 30 days cancellation notice for July, August, mid-September to mid-October, Major Holidays, Special Events and Christmas Prelude. We suggest you purchase trip insurance (www.insuremytrip.com) as cancellations may be unavoidable.

No Smoking Policy: We offer a non-smoking, non-vaping environment; guests who disregard our policy will be charged a $250 housekeeping fee for additional room cleaning.

Child Policy: The Inn is appropriate for children 8 and older in a limited number of rooms.

Pet Policy: One dog can be accommodated for an additional fee of $30 per night in the Tack Room Suite and the Bungalow (seasonal cottage) only. We are happy to provide a dog bed and extra towels to help keep your pet cozy and comfortable! In consideration of the comfort of all of our guests, and to preserve the condition of our high quality linens and furnishings, we respectfully request that pets be kept off of guestroom beds and furniture.

Pets must be accompanied by their owners at all times. One exception to this: with the permission of the innkeeper, guests may leave their dog in the guestroom or cottage for up to 2 hours ONLY if happily crated.  Dogs are not allowed in any common areas of the Inn, including the dining room. Dogs are welcome to join their owners on our patio during breakfast service as long as they’re quiet and on leash. Under no circumstances may pets be left uncrated and unattended in the guest room for any period of time. Doing so may forfeit the remainder of your reservation without refund.

Owners are expected to keep pets quiet and pick up after them. Plastic bags are available if needed.  Any damage caused during your pet’s visit will be charged to your credit card. Dogs must be kept on a leash outside per Kennebunk leash law.


Cell Phones: We ask that you refrain from using cell phones in the dining room, other common areas and on the patio.

Gratuity: A gratuity is a thoughtful gesture toward your housekeeping team. If you are pleased with the comfort and cleanliness of your accommodations, you may leave a cash gratuity in the envelope provided in your room. Or, for your convenience, we would be happy to add a gratuity to your bill upon request.

Liquor: The Inn at English Meadows has a Maine State Liquor License.  Per Maine State Law all alcohol consumed in the Common Areas must be purchased from the Inn. If you bring any alcoholic beverages of your own, it must stay in the privacy of your guest room.
