Description - Bed and breakfast

Click "Book Now" to reserve Waldo Emerson Inn Inc. - The most romantic bed & breakfast inn in historic Kennebunk, Maine.

Waldo Emerson Inn is a colonial style inn listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

A restored shipbuilders manse located next to the Kennebunk river with all the latest amenities including working fireplaces for a relaxing romantic getaway. Let us pamper you with our terrific Dutch breakfast and afternoon tea in the Inn's historic parlor or in the shade of our large oak trees.

The Inn is the oldest remaining house in Kennebunk and has had several famous owners.

The original Dutch gambrel was constructed by one Waldo Emerson in 1753. Waldo, great-uncle of Ralph Waldo Emerson, the poet/essayist, made a tidy profit building clipper ships on the river behind the house.

It was inherited through marriage by Theodore Lyman, who made a fortune building ships on the site and added the enormous addition in 1784 as a wedding gift for his second wife.

The Waldo Emerson is truly a four-season inn. In spring, the inn and the town are abloom with tulips and daffodils. The air is brisk, the shops and restaurants are open, and the crowds are light. In summer, flowers abound in the inn's gardens. We are just moments from the beach with parking permits and chairs provided. There are dozens of excellent restaurants nearby. In autumn, the Kennebunks put on a spectacular show of fall colors followed by lots of winter activities nearby. Enjoy a mug of fresh-pressed apple cider beside a roaring fire in the parlor.
