The Waldo Emerson Inn awaits, offering you a much-deserved break from the pressures of modern living. Built in 1753, this pet-friendly, cozy, and romantic Kennebunkport, Maine bed and breakfast is one of the most charming and historic places to stay in Southern Maine. Elegant and stately yet reinvigorated with a lighthearted touch, it blends historical charm with refined 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, luxury linens and amenities, fun personal touches, and original works of art. Awake to dine leisurely on a gourmet two-course breakfast prepared by your innkeeper.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
