The Waldo Emerson Inn awaits, offering you a much-deserved break from the pressures of modern living. Built in 1753, this romantic Kennebunkport, Maine bed and breakfast is one of the most historic places to stay in Maine on the coast. Refined and stately yet recently reinvigorated by a new innkeeper with a lighthearted touch, it blends historical charm with elegant whimsy. Stow away that smartphone and find comfort in the centuries-old pine floors, elaborate woodwork, and peaceful setting. Settle in the parlor and picture Ralph Waldo Emerson putting his own feet up after a long day laboring with pen and paper while you sip on a drink from the Honor Bar. Sleep soundly in a bedroom appointed with authentic historical details, fun personal touches and original works of art. Then awake to dine leisurely on a gourmet breakfast prepared by a London-trained chef.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
