“Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

As one of the top romantic getaways in Kennebunkport, Maine, the Waldo Emerson Inn offers six dreamy en-suite guest rooms, four with fireplaces. Ranging from warm and cozy to light and airy, all are delightfully charming with wide-planked pine wood floors dating back to 1784, a variety of antique furnishings, and pleasant daylight filtered through the original paned windows. Read about the rooms, see the pictures, then book your lodging at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast…

Across the front garden from the Waldo Emerson Inn, is the newly constructed Emerson Cottage. For guests looking for a larger space or an extended stay, the Emerson Cottage is a 900 square foot ground floor suite in the Carriage House. It boasts an open plan living room with crystal fireplace and a kitchenette with granite countertop, large bathroom with tiled tub and washer/dryer plus 2 bedrooms (a queen and 2 twins which can be made into a king). The suite is handsomely decorated in a modern beach farmhouse style. For more information on pricing and booking the Emerson Cottage email innkeeper@waldoemerson.com or call the inn 207-985-4250.
