The Franciscan Guest House of Kennebunk in Kennebunk Beach, Maine

The Franciscan Guest House of Kennebunk in Kennebunk Beach, Maine

 he Franciscan Guest House, one of the Kennebunks’ best kept secrets, opens the doors for another wonderful season and welcomes families and all travelers to inquire about weekend getaways or full week guest accommodations. On the banks of the Kennebunk River, a short walk from Kennebunk Beach, and adjacent to the Franciscan Monastery property, the Franciscan Guest House is a truly unique cultural, spiritual and environmental gem in the heart of coastal Maine. Arthur Frommer features the Guest House as a favorite “Harborside Hideaway of Maine” in Budget Travel Magazine.

As a not-for-profit hotel, guests enjoy old-world hospitality at affordable prices. Rates start in May at $65 to $154 per room, double occupancy, until June 23rd, and from $80 to $249 double occupancy during the Summer.

Guests can walk to many local attractions or take advantage of the open-air In-town Trolley, which shuttles visitors from the Guest House to local beaches, downtown Kennebunkport, historic seaport Dock Square, and other scenic highlights such as former President George H.W. Bush’s Estate, Walker’s Point. Fran Golden, Travel Editor for the Boston Herald wrote on the Guest House, “You can’t get a better location than this.”

The Franciscan Guest House is also adjacent to the Franciscan Monastery, a separate property situated on a 60 acre estate which is visited by more than 50,000 people annually. The Monastery’s central building is housed in the original Tudor style mansion, designed for the wealthy industrialist William A. Rogers Esq. and completed in 1908. The great house is complimented by landscapes designed by Olmstead Brothers Architects, founded by Frederick Law Olmstead whose work includes New York’s Central Park and Boston’s Emerald Necklace. A number of walking trails crisscross meadows, coastal forest and lead to riverfront marshlands. An updated trail map is available at the Guest House. Situated on a 60 acre nature preserve, the Monastery was selected as a Finalist in the Best of the Best of York County as best location for bird watching as compiled by York County Coast Star.
